Since the price of shoes today is typically over $100, maybe not (unless you know someone who works at Footlocker like I do). There’s even CoolTown shoes for walking commuters, which I’ll cover down the road.
For regular readers of the blog or those familiar with the concept, you’re probably more than aware of the walkable theme. Cars in CoolTowns are often actually more hindrance than help, and when they’re truly needed, ownership can be temporary. Subways and streetcars are a relative bargain and often faster than driving in the city (believe me!). Then there’s always biking, scooting and my personal favorite.
As a close to CoolTown affordability week, may I suggest this award-winning magazine to keep on top of how you can get more for less.
