Four women trade shoes to solve their financial problems.

A Shoe Addict’s Christmas (Movie Review)


Noelle (Candace Cameron Bure) is at a crossroads in her life when it seems that love, a connection with her father, and her dream career are out of reach. When she stays late at her job in a department store on a snowy Christmas Eve and gets locked in, she isn’t too concerned until a quirky woman appears out of nowhere in the shoe department and tells Noelle that she is her guardian angel.

She has Noelle try on shoes and with each pair, she is sent back to previous Christmases. This allows Noelle to redo some of the choices she has made in her life and she also begins to realize that the handsome fireman she meets in one of these flashbacks may just be the love of her life.

A Shoe Addict’s Christmas is a delightful Hallmark holiday film with a twist. It has a great cast and is sure to warm the hearts of all who watch it.


Four women. One common shoe size. And a shared love of fabulous footwear. Helene Zaharis is married to a power-hungry politician; Lorna Rafferty is up to her eyeballs in credit card debt; Sandra Vanderslice is fighting agoraphobia while she works the night shift at a call center; and Jocelyn Bowen barely knows her heel from her toe. But when these unlikely friends come together to trade shoes, they bond over a common problem: They need cash and fast.

Actor Kelly Preston stars in this Hallmark Channel movie adapted from Beth Harbison’s novel about the power of footwear to change lives. It aired Sunday November 25 as part of the network’s annual Countdown to Christmas event. It’s a funny, heartwarming tale about old friends, new loves, and the undeniable charm of a well-heeled pair of shoes. A Shoes Addict’s Christmas is written and directed by Hallmark regular Rick Garman and co-stars Elizabeth Smart as a guardian angel.

The mystery woman

Candace Cameron Bure is one of Hallmark’s reigning queens and stars in the new Countdown to Christmas movie A Shoe Addict’s Christmas. It’s a light take on the classic A Christmas Carol. When Noelle gets locked overnight in the high-end department store where she works, she’s visited by a woman who claims to be her guardian angel. They work together to re-pair shoes and then Noelle is taken back in time to see what might have been had she made different choices.

She’s brought back to Christmas Eve three years ago where her ex broke up with her, she quit her photography career and started working in HR at the department store. She’s also been given a chance to make a better choice in her love life. Mystery Lady tries to get Noelle to have more faith and take risks but she doesn’t seem to be taking her guff. When the fire department arrives to rescue Noelle, she tells them that she’s had a weird lady in her shoe department all night.

The guardian angel

When Noelle gets snowed in at her department store job on Christmas Eve, she meets a woman who tells her she’s her guardian angel. The quirky angel helps her navigate her wishes for a connection with her father and her dream career.

Guardian angels are angels who volunteer to stand by a human from the moment they are assigned to watch over him or her until death, or as long as God will have them stay on earth. They originally patrolled the ramparts of heaven, but now are able to go where they are needed most.

They are not bound by the nine choirs of angels, but they may have access to higher ranks if necessary. This can be useful in a crisis, for example, to get help in a very short time.

Although some people have claimed to know the name of their guardian angel, the Church discourages the practice for three reasons. One is that an angel who is not named in Holy Scripture can’t be authenticated as a true guardian angel by the Church.
