As the saying goes, Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life.

I believe this wholeheartedly, which is why I'm so excited for the opening of a new, fabulous brick and mortar store.

Freebird just opened its very first storefront on the East Coast at 201 Newbury Street in Boston, MA.

I've been lusting for their shoes online at freebirdstores.com for some time, but I'm the person who prefers physically trying on shoes, especially if I'm going to spend my money on great soles.

Sure, it's old school, but I don't have to pay for returns and it makes me feel like I have custom fit attire for my tootsies.

What is it about shoes and boots that makes us feel so good?  The smell of leather is the sign of a well-made shoe covering.  Denver-based Freebird has beautiful shoes, boots, bags, sandals, men's shoes, and even baby-leather soled shoes, called "my first Freebird".

Here's a tip. Baby Freebird's are a perfect baby gift for a really good friend or family member.

The company's story is about freedom, individuality, and independence.  That sounds a lot like what New England shoppers like.  The products are all unique and will make you stand out from the crowd.

With intricate details and metalwork, and using exotic leathers, each pair is a work of art.

Under "accessories", you can find leather dog collars and leashes, all unique in their own way, just like your dog.

If you love to shop for shoes and believe you can't have too many pairs of shoes, boots, and sandals, make a day trip into Boston and explore Newbury Street's latest hot fashionista store for men, women, children, and pets.  One stop and you're done. Then you can have lunch and enjoy the view.
