Remember how much Cinderella loved that shiny slipper? Well times haven’t changed that much, and for guys who find themselves stumped about what to place under the tree for that special woman, Evergreen Footwear in Placerville has the solution.

Be bold, be brave: think shoes.

Just ask her to write down all her sizes and the lady will be all smiles when she finds a pair of comfortable, stylish pumps or slippers wrapped up and waiting for her on Christmas Day.

Don’t stop with the fuzzy Uggs slippers that are abundantly displayed in the shop at 1297 Broadway, there are plenty of famous name-brand boots and shoes that emphasize comfort without forgetting how to look stylishly kicky.

Owner Judy Stanfield, 72, understands that women want to wear the latest eye-catching styles, but she also knows that at the end of a long day, your shoes can dictate whether you are happy or sad. Comfort and quality are the order of the day at Evergreen.

With names like Rieker, Acorn, New Balance, Birkenstock and so many more, one would be hard pressed not to spot a pair of shoes or boots that will slide perfectly onto that special foot.

Even the hiking boots at Evergreen have special stitching and detailing to make them especially feminine, so that Cinderella can make fashionable forays into the gorgeous wilderness areas of El Dorado County.

And speaking of the county, while Stanfield concedes that many of the brands she carries may be purchased online or “down the hill,” she reminds residents that by shopping at local businesses, the dollars stay in the area to help all.

“I just wish people realized all the benefits they get by keeping the money here, locally,” said the store owner. “It’s so important to shop locally and support one another. We all benefit that way.”

Personalized service is another good reason to shop at Evergreen Footwear, which has been named “Best Shoe Store” for nine years straight in the Mountain Democrat’s annual “Readers’ Choice” contest.

While Stanfield has owned the store for 11 years, Evergreen Footwear has been in Placerville for 16 years, with a former store just east of its current location in Hangtown Village Square shopping center. The shoe store is open from 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (until 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday), 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday.

Once inside, gentlemen, after purchasing that pair of black suede boots complete with a bow that sits just above the heel, look around for some special accessories for milady, such as purses and colorful holiday socks. Throw in a bit of Evergreen’s selection of sparkling jewelry and you’re on your way to a memorable Christmas.

Prince Charming couldn’t have done it better.
