Today's shop-worthy slideshow is dedicated to one of our favorite fall footwear trends: creepers. Originally introduced to the fashion scene by British Teddy Boys in the '60s, then popularized by Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren's London shop Let It Rock and punk bands like the Sex Pistols in the '70s, these thick-soled shoes reappeared on our sartorial radar when Karl Lagerfeld conjured up his own dreamy pair for Chanel's Resort 13 collection. As seen on celebrity trendsetters and street style stars alike, these rubber-bottomed brogues come in an array of cool colors and exotic prints, plus, they provide just the right amount of height while retaining their comfort. So regardless of which style suits your fancy, we think it's high time you embraced fashion's next iteration of the flatform.
