30% off Wolverine Boots!

Wolverine Boots

All of Wolverine’s boots are made with the perseverance of the Wolverine in mind. These Wolverine boots were built to endure the tough working conditions when the first railroads were built in America in the 1800’s. Today, they are still “Relentless By Nature.”  Now, on sale for 30% off, the Wolverine boots below are a fantastic addition to your wardrobe at a great price! 

The Wolverine Julian Chukka boot has a crepe rubber outsole to keep you stable and comfortable. Full-grain leather or waxed suede uppers look great in a casual environment and are great in less-than-ideal weather. The Navy and Cognac colorways shown below are selling out, so this is your last chance to get them!


Also on sale is the Morley boot from the Wolverine 1000 Mile collection. This Goodyear welted Wolverine boot is as tough as it looks.  The tan colorway we have on sale for 30% off right now features a military style Horween waxed flesh leather.  In simple terms, the Horween Leather Company finishes the leather for this Wolverine boot on the flesh side instead of the grain side for a rugged, suede-like look.

What are you waiting for? Shop our selection of Wolverine boots while we still have your size in stock!

Connecticut Tax Free Week


The 2015 Connecticut Tax Free Week comes just in time for the back to school (and back to work!) shopping season.  This year Tax Free Week is August 16-22 in CT.  You can take advantage of combining back to school savings with the tax savings for the best deals! At, we are offering 10% off your purchase (no minimum purchase required) and, as always, free shipping! Be sure to stop by The ShoeMart brick & mortar store in Norwalk, CT for even more deals!

In 2015, purchase of clothing or footwear costing less than $100 per item are not subject to CT sales and use taxes during the exclusion week. Here are some quick and easy guidelines for shopping during the tax free holiday:

Q: What is exempt?

A: Clothing and footwear costing less than $100 per item.

Q:  Is anything excluded?

A: Yes. Items $100 and over, specialty athletic or protective items, and “Jewelry, handbags, luggage, umbrellas, wallets, watches, and similar items carried on or about the human body but not worn on the body in the manner characteristic of clothing” are excluded.

Q: Is the $100 limit per transaction or per item?

A:  “The exclusion applies to each item of clothing or footwear sold, regardless of how many items are sold to a customer on the same invoice. However, for any item that costs $100 or more, sales tax applies to the entire price of that item.”

For example, you can buy two pairs of shoes that are each priced at $99.95 in one order and both items are exempt. If you buy two pairs of shoes that are each priced at $99.95 and one that is priced at $105.95, you will pay tax only on the $105.95 purchase.

Q: If I pay extra for shipping on a $99 shoe, is it still considered exempt?

Shipping Costs are not included as part of the purchase price (<$100), and the item will still be exempt — although all of our items ship free!

Q: What about shoes that are regularly priced at or above $100 that are on sale/I have a coupon for?

Tax is calculated on the final sale price after all reductions have been taken. If an item is already reduced below $100 it will count as exempt. If a coupon brings the item down to a price below $100, the item will count as exempt.

Example: An item priced for $105.95 combined with a 10% off coupon code will have a final sale price of $95.36 and will be considered tax exempt.

Get Happy… Feet!


You rely on them every day, and they take you everywhere you need to go. Your feet do a lot for you… so what can you do for them in return?

1.  Learn More About Them!

Foot ailments don’t just occur in athletes.  According to the APMA’s 2010 survey, most Americans have experienced pain or problems with their feet. Foot pain can interfere with many of your favorite activities.  Get to know your feet and get advice on how to care for them from the APMA’s website and by tuning in to some of our tips and tricks!

2.  Put them up!

The phrase “Put your feet up” exists as an idiom for a reason! Give your feet some much needed R & R.  Reduce feet and ankle swelling by elevating your legs above your heart while sitting or lying down.

3. Rub them down!

Foot massages feel great and release all that unwanted tension. Your feet will appreciate a good rub-down, and so will the rest of your body! Benefits of massage include better circulation! If you want to learn to massage your own feet, you can start by watching this video. Use lotion, especially during cold, dry months to moisturize!

4.  Work Them Out!

Your feet need exercise, too! Pick up marbles or other small items with your toes, walk as if you were on a tight rope, and rotate your ankles slowly.  Avoid toe cramps by raising, pointing, and curling toes. Hold for 5 seconds and repeat 10 times.  Search Pinterest for more foot exercises!

5.  Get a Proper Fit!

Many foot problems are caused or made worse by ill-fitting shoes. A properly fit shoe can make all the difference when it comes to conditions like hammer toe, gout, bunions, or swollen feet. A properly-fit shoe will not only help reduce pain but can also prevent many foot conditions from happening. Get fitted at your local store or come see us in Norwalk, CT and we will be happy to assist you!

Athletic Shoes

It’s October: It’s colder, the kids are back in school, and people are starting to spend less time outside. However, continuing to remain physically active is one of the best ways to keep away the upcoming winter blues!

As we mentioned last week, at TheShoeMart we enjoy helping you find shoes that suit your purpose. This week, we’re taking an extra-close look at athletic shoes so that you have the right tools to stay fit this season.

First up is the New Balance 990. The 990 first debuted in 1982, and has been loved since as a classic American stability shoe. This shoe is great for the mild-to-moderate overpronator since it is designed to reduce inward rolling of the foot while running.  Most runners with normal or medium arches will fall into this category.


Also from New Balance, we have the 890v4. A lightweight neutral cushioning shoe, it is a great choice for underpornators (supinators) and midfoot or forefoot strikers.

Moderate to Severe overpronators with low or flat arches should look at motion control shoes like the  1080, 1260, and 3040.

If you’d like to take your running off-road…

Consider Inov-8’s RocLite 295, a durable choice with deep cleats perfect for your next trail run or unpredictable adventure.

If you’re really not into running, you might consider weight lifting as a way to stay active.

Pendlay DoWin 2013 Weightlifting Shoes are a traditional weightlifting shoe created solely for Olympic weightlifting. You can read more about why you need specific shoes for weightlifting here.

The Inov-8 Fastlift, Reebok Lifter 2.0 and Reebok Lifter Plus 2.0 are all hybrid weightlifting shoes that are popular with CrossFit athletes and those that want a lifting shoe capable of handling a variety of other movements–in addition to the snatch and the clean and jerk.

The Reebok CrossFit Power Lite TR‘s gripping full rubber outsole, hi-top stability and cushioning make it great for powerlifting moves like the squat, deadlift, and bench press.

Now that we’ve provided you an athletic shoe arsenal, what are you waiting for?
