No two families celebrate Thanksgiving in exactly the same way. Your holiday may be more formal, or perhaps you and your family watch the game and toss a ball around in the backyard? Whatever your traditions are, SAS has the perfect shoe for you!

A "Proper" Holiday

Some people celebrate the things they are thankful for by getting dressed up, maybe attending a church service, and then sitting down to a formal dinner as a family.

If this sounds like your perfect prim and proper Thanksgiving, then you've probably had to deal with some less-than-perfect formal footwear in the past. But no more! When you shop SAS, you never have to sacrifice comfort for style.

Shoes like Isabel combine timeless beauty with modern cushioned comfort. This elegant "Mary-Jane" kitten heel offers a classic silhouette, gorgeous leathers, and support features including a removable comfort footbed and a shock-absorbing Supersoft¨ Sole. Moxie is another fabulous option for women. This style offers upscale looks and comfort features including a padded insole and additional ball and heel pads for greater cushioned comfort.

Men can't go wrong with shoes like Aden. This classic Oxford looks great and feels incredible, providing a relaxed fit and lasting comfort for all-day wear!

Sometimes it Will Rain on Your Parade (and that's Okay if you Wear the Right Shoes)

If you're the type to go outside with friends and family to watch a local parade, then you'll want to wear shoes that are not only fashionable and supportive, but will hold up against the rain and cold.

Gretchen is a stylish bootie that's perfect for this type of Thanksgiving celebration! It is available in five beautiful leather options that are all treated for water-resistance and include a slip-resistant sole.

Additional features include a removable comfort footbed and an enhanced cushion system that provides shock-absorption and supports the three main pressure points of the foot.

This boot is fabulous, but you don't have to take my word for it.

In the words of SAS customer CC from Williamsburg, "The Gretchens are so warm and comfortable. I love these boots!"

SAS Tour and Journey Shoes

The Family that Plays Together Stays Together

Does your family tradition involve gathering around the TV to root for your favorite football teams? Do you head outside after lunch for your own game in the yard?

If this sounds like a winning holiday plan to you, then you'll want to wear a pair of lace-ups you can run and play in.

SAS Tour and Journey Shoes

I recommend Tour Mesh Lux for women and Journey Mesh Lux for men. These shoes offer cushioned comfort and advanced support. Plus, they are made from premium leathers and breathable mesh, so you'll still look nice for the holiday!

Time to sit back and relax.

As the year draws to an end, a lot of people take Thanksgiving Day to rest and reflect.

If your holiday is more laidback, you'll want relaxed shoes to go with it. You should opt for something seasonally appropriate and warm enough for the weather outside. It should be stylish, of course, and comfortable enough to kick your feet up after a delicious meal.

Loafers are perfect for this sort of get together! They're stylish, comfortable, and easy to slip on and off when you decide it's time for a turkey-nap.

For women, Lara is a beautiful moccasin-style that wraps fine leather completely around the foot. It features a soft cushioned lining, removable comfort footbed, and a cushioned outsole to support each step.

Simplify and Metro also incredible styles that will work perfectly in this setting. They look and feel incredible, and they'll help you feel right at home during this type of family get together.

For men, Side Gore is the perfect choice! This moccasin-style loafer comes in a number of classic leather options and offers advanced features including a cushioned knit upper lining, a removable comfort footbed, and a PU cushion outsole for all-day support.

Attention Black Friday Shoppers!

For some people, Thanksgiving dinner ends and Black Friday shopping begins!

If you and your family participate in this annual shopping spree, then you know how important it is to wear stable, supportive, comfortable shoes.

It is also good to select shoes that are well ventilated, because it can get very warm in crowded shopping centers.

Tour Mesh LT and Journey Mesh LT are great options! Similar to the lux designs, these styles are made from premium leather and breathable mesh. Both shoes feature removable, anti-microbial footbeds that help keep you cool and dry, with a PU foam cushion that provides greater comfort and support.

Plus, these styles are offered in respective "punch" and "hazard" reflective colorways! This will help increase your visibility when walking in dark store parking lots late at night.
