With the influx of suede over-the-knee boots, fur lined booties and more – it’s easy to start prematurely coveting fall shoe wear. But back in the real world, it’s 90 degrees and August, so we’ve done you a solid and rounded up the best summer shoes (that you can actually wear now) that correspond with your favorite.

What you want for fall: Over the knee suede boots

If you’re craving this Steve Madden ‘Overrpas’ Over the Knee boot ($109.95) we cannot blame you. The thigh high style is incredibly sexy and hotter than ever for this fall.

What to buy now instead: Ankle bootie sandals.

If you love over-the-knee boots, try this over-the-ankle sandal style. These Ash Women’s Selina Open-Toe Flat sandals ($154, down from $219.95) are perfect.

What you want for fall: Clog booties

These Tory Burch “Ginevra” Clog Booties ($375) are going to be huge this fall and winter – they are the perfect marriage of the clog trend and the bootie trend. Plus the gold studs are awesome.

What to buy now instead: Clog wedge sandals

Satiate your clog urge with the sandal version; these Fontana Platform Wedged Heel ($178) are totally wearable for right now.

What you want for fall: Pleated booties

The pleated leather bootie is a great, sleek fall shoe option. This Me Too ‘Labella’ Bootie ($109.95) is especially sexy; pair them with black tights or skinny jeans for work or play.

What to buy now instead: Pleated sandals

Get the pleated shoe style now by option for a sandal/pump version like this Seychelles ‘Peacock’ Pump ($94.95). The perk of this style is that you can easily transition from end of summer into fall with them.
