The Christmas season is like a mini-holiday for many people, so just like you would before going away for a week in the sun, it's important to ensure you've chosen and packed the right footwear for a long weekend of eating, drinking, and trekking out in the cold to burn of those Christmas calories.

1. The Party Shoe

Whether you're attending your office Christmas 'do' or a friend's house party at Christmas or New Year, you'll want something with a bit of festive sparkle. We think that Dune's 'Bo' court shoe in Champagne glitter epitomises the celebration shoe this year, and the good news is it's now available to buy for £59.99 (was £85)

2. The Slobbing-around-the-house Slipper

Parties are all well and good, but let's be honest: one of the most exciting aspects of the festive season for many of us is getting the chance to put our feet up and get on with some serious lounging for a few days! Once you've put your heels away for the night, get in to these stylish French-inspired slippers at Topshop (£14) and give your feet a well-earned rest!

3. The New Year's Day Walk Wellington

There's only so much gorging and lounging the average person can take before the guilt kicks in and it's time for a bit of fresh air and a good healthy winter walk. New Year's Day is the traditional time to do it, so if you're likely to be dragged out (or even head out willingly) from your Christmas crash-out, you'll definitely need a good pair of wellies. We love Joules' polka dot Navy wellies, which are £36.95.

4. The smart but comfy shoe


If you're off to your parents or in-laws and want to dress to impress without subjecting your feet to the type of killer heels you might have put on for the pre-Christmas parties, you'll definitely want a smart but comfortable shoe that will look great with your dressed-up attire. We rate these star-heeld Mary Janes at Kurt Geiger, which are also in the sale and are £59 (were £120)

5. The long warm boot


Long boots are a godsend at this time of year: they keep you nice and toasty while looking a bit smarter than fluffy ankle boots. Ugg Australia is always a go-to name in this category, so we can recommend these Tall Plumdale Boots (£200) which will serve as the perfect house-to-pub (or shop, or restaurant!) boot when the temperature drops.
