This weekend is one of our city’s most important fundraising events – the Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life. The event kicks off at Eau Claire Plaza at 11AM and is hosted by HIV Community Link a resource for HIV prevention, support and advocacy. This year’s fundraising goal is to raise $110,000 and continue to raise awareness and reduce the harm associated with HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C for all individuals.

AND if you’re going to walk, don’t forget to look your best of course! Here are some suggestions on what footwear you might consider wearing to this year’s walk – practical or not for Fall.

Listen to the segment from Virgin Radio:


Ankle boots are everywhere. Practical and easy to wear, an ankle boot is perfect for pants, skirts or even shorts while the weather lasts!


Over the knee boots. Look out pretty woman, they are back. Wear these with a more tame outfit to balance the look.


Animal print. You don’t have to run like a leopard to rock this hot fall trend.




The chelsea boot – The no lace ankle boots can be worn with jeans or suits and are now coming out in lots of colour combinations.


Brogues (boots and shoes) – these are everywhere! The stitched toe adds some visual interest and they can be dressed up or down.


Smart athletic shoes – think quilted leather, slip ons, and always make sure your sole is clean if you are buying white soled shoes (Magic Erasers work great).
