Here is a book all about buying and caring for shoes that you will keep as a source of reference for years to come. It would make a good gift for the shoe lover on your holiday shopping list. The owner of OddShoeFinder.com co-authored “The OddShoeFinder.com Shoe Wearer’s Handbook,” which covers subjects such as how to get a good fit, what to look for in different types of shoes, how to avoid counterfeit designer and athletic shoes, shoe care, do-it-yourself shoe repair, and uses for your old shoes. While you won’t find much fluff or entertainment in this book, it is full of useful, well-organized information. The section that interested me the most is how to spot a fake designer shoe. The book offers checklists of things to look for in some of the most popular designer shoes (Christian Louboutin, Dolce and Gabbana, Manolo Blahnik) so you can double-check before you buy.
