There are two kinds of people in the world: Those who think of shoes as practical items to protect their feet, and those who view them as the most important fashion choice of each day. This week's Readers' Choice contest addresses the latter.
If you love shoes, you know all the best places to look for them. You know who has the best sales and the best selection, and which places carry the brands that fit you perfectly. So where do you go locally to shop for shoes?
Tell us in the comments about why you buy shoes where you buy them — and you can have more than one favorite. The nominations will close on Thursday at 5 p.m., and we'll announce our Readers' Choices based on comments and Patch Places reviews by Saturday morning.
