Best Shoe Store: DSW

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Readers have again selected this smorgasbord of shoes as their favorite. While it helps that the store offers everything from meat-and-potatoes (like Nike Shox and Ugg boots) to dessert (hello, Gucci peep toes and Chinese Laundry platforms), we think its winning streak might have more to do with the steep discounts shoppers find on every brand. The warehouse's rewards program further lures customers to indulge in their buffet of sole food on a regular basis.

Runners-up: Nordstrom, Sole Classics
