Fans of these Swedish-designed shoes say wearing them is “like running on clouds.” Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it? 


Hoka is an amazing brand of comfy shoes.

Hailed by surgical nurses and grocery workers everywhere, these shoes are hard to beat for comfort. 

Birkenstock (excluding EVA)

If you’ve ever put on a pair of Birkenstocks, your feet probably thanked you once they molded to your feet.


Salomon shoes

Sometimes you need all-terrain shoes to take you safely to all those special places. Salomon has you covered with boots, trail running shoes and more. Whether they are for work or play, you and your healthcare worker/first responder will love these shoes.

Anybody who likes wearing shoes while they play around water can attest to how awesomely comfy, well-made and versatile Chacos are.

Teva’s are one of those brands of shoes that once you try them, you love them. Great for hiking in sandals, if you’re the sort of person who enjoys that.


Keen boots

Keen makes sturdy sandals, shoes and boots that give you the confidence that your feet are well protected when they meet the ground. Plus they’re comfy and cute.

New Balance

What would all the wide-footed people of the world do without New Balance? Seriously, when my children were little and they had little square feet, New Balance was our friend.

Altra is the answer to every woman who’s ever stuffed feet into pointy-toed uncomfortable shoes for the sake of fashion. Or any guy whose toes need room to breathe. One of the few shoes made with a natural toe box, your toes will be so happy to have all the room they need to spread out and let you do whatever it is you need to do in comfort.

So, head out to your local Mountain High Outfitters store today. Purchase one of the nine brands mentioned (in-store only) and use the code GiveOne at checkout. Mountain High will reach out to your gift and let them know a pair of shoes is waiting for them.
