When making a toast to somebody, good health is rarely ever unmentioned. So what is it if it isn’t just the fitness regimens, cleansing crazes or calculated meal portions delivered to your door?

Best Shoe Forward | Fancy Footwear

If you must only own five shoes (or if there’s room for only five pairs given your limited closet space) make sure they’re the ones on this list. Let me tell you why they’re the best you can have.    Converse Jack Purcell This classic tennis shoe from Converse just looks like quality, from the clean lines and the signature “smile” on the toe. Jack Purcell designed this in 1935 with durability and protection while on the badminton courts.
