At Kick It Boots & Stompwear, you'll never see painful stilettos. The year-old purple-and-white-walled Ballard boutique specializes in chunky, funky, smartly priced boots made for walking, dancing and real life. Shop owner Angela Rae's favorites are Western, equestrian-style, motorcycle and mod boots from Luichiny, made in Brazil of Italian leather ($88-$198). Contrasting with her kick-ass collection of footwear is a selection of demure clothing. I love femme dresses worn with boots, says Ballardite Rae. Among her picks are Industry's pretty florals dotted with unique buttons ($88-$138). Says Rae with a mischievous smile, My customers don't tiptoe around style. Shopping and Style
