The Ultimate Fall-Shoe Guide To Stay Comfortable This Season

Fall is without a doubt the most fashion forward season simply because of the range of clothing that is possible. You can switch from a dress on a warmer day to an oversized sweater and jeans the next. There’s a slight chill in the air, but not enough to need to bundle up in your sleeping bag coat. That leaves us with a lot of clothing and shoe possibilities!

Besides stocking up on cardigans and pumpkins, fall shoes top our list of favorite things this season. We can’t get enough fall boots, booties, sneakers, and flats, especially when they are comfy. What’s in your fall shoe closet? Here are some styles we can’t live without.

Ankle Boots

Let’s start with the basics: a classic pair of ankle boots. There are lots of styles of comfortable booties out there and it can be pretty overwhelming to pick just one. Are you someone who likes the polished attitude of Chelsea boots, the edgy cool vibe of combat boots, the sporty style of sneaker boots, or a pair of Western-inspired boots? Whatever the case, make sure they are 100% comfortable because you will definitely get lots of use out of your fall boots. For everyday wear, we’d recommend a pair of straightforward leather low heel ankle boots like Boot Camp. These are some of the most comfortable shoes because they are made for support, even for days of non-stop running around.

Tall Boots

If you want your shoes to make a statement, why not try a pair of tall boots? Wearing over the knee women's fashion boots, riding boots, and tall combat boots will make sure that all eyes are on you, so keep the rest of your tall boots outfit semi-neutral. Durable and effortlessly stylish, Crave is the perfect pair of fashion boots for city life. They are made in Portugal with high quality leather and attention to detail. You’d never guess that inside these elegant fall boots is a Soft Support removable footbed and a faux fur lining that provides ultimate cushioning and warmth. These orthopedic shoes for women certainly don’t sacrifice any style!

Heeled Fashion Boots

With holiday gatherings (even socially distanced ones) like Thanksgiving, there will be many occasions to dress up in the fall. Having a pair of sassy women's fashion boots with a short heel will go a long way this season. Plus, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort or stability just because you are adding a heel. With the right pair of comfortable booties, like Work It High, you’ll find all the support you need, even if you have a common foot problem like plantar fasciitis. These comfortable booties are the most comfortable shoes for women and are the shoe equivalent of your favorite sweater, so trust us when we say that you will get a lot of use out of them!

Stylish Sneakers

Women's fashion boots are definitely the main excitement when it comes to fall shoes, but there are other staples that have a place this season as well. A pair of trusty sneakers that can go anywhere and be thrown on with athleisure or jeans will certainly come in handy. It’s great to have one lace-up version, like Star as well as a slip-on pair like Twin Gore Lux

Cozy Clogs

For those chilly nights when you’d prefer sitting by a campfire to a night on the town, reach for a pair of cozy clogs. The beauty of clogs is that they are the easiest possible shoe imaginable and can be thrown on in a hurry. Taos clogs are for indoor and outdoor activities, so you can wear them as slippers or as a shoe to run errands or walk the dog. What could be more appealing than an extra cozy wool pair of clogs like Woollery?

That’s our fall shoes capsule for now, but rest assured there are plenty of other fall shoe styles that will sneak their way in over time -- Mary Janes, sneaker boots, colorful boots, and flats included. It’s great to have at least one pair of each style of fashion boots during the fall because you never know what you will be getting into -- apple picking, office holiday parties, and leaf peeping are just the start!
