The 7 Shoes That Should Be In Your Closet Come Fall

Summer is great for many reasons (summer Fridays, backyard barbecues, open season) but footwear is not one of them. How can you really express yourself with a pair of strappy flat sandals? The answer is not at all. (“Oh, look, this pair is almost Grecian!” “These ones have a T-strap!” Whoop dee doo.) The point is, summer shoes are incredibly boring while fall footwear is anything but. Think back on your childhood–I bet the shoes you cherished most were bought for back to school. The pair you were so excited to break in and were totally scuffed up and ratty by the last day of classes.

For me, it was Nine West heeled loafers in 9th grade (which have come back, FYI), the Tory Burch gold logo Reva flats for my very first internship, the Birkenstock mules I wore in boarding school (was I ahead of the curve or what??). Shoes are the first thing you buy in a new season and the way you express your individual style to your peers. Now, if that hasn’t gotten you pumped for fall shopping, I don’t know what will. (Actually, this post might.)

This season, the footwear trends are all over the place (check out this Lucky slideshow of the “wild and wacky bunch” if you don’t believe me.) You’ve got glitter (again), you’ve got chunky heels and open-toe mules and so many sneaker options you’ll feel like you’re in a Lady’s Foot Locker. You’ve got slouchy leather boots that you can wear over knit tights and shearling-lined booties you’ll want to live in until Christmas. There are so many shoes that have the potential to be your new favorites (add them to that Shoe Hall of Fame).

We rounded up the 7 shoes styles that should be in your closet this fall: Lug Soles, Mules, Cross-Strap Pumps, Fashion Sneakers, Shearling Lined, Quilted and Oxblood. Click through the slideshow above to shop them all.
