Ready to do some fall shoe shopping? I know it's still only August, but I can't help but jump the gun on wardrobe planning for my favorite season. Naturally, I've been doing a lot of online shopping in anticipation of cooler weather, so I thought I'd pull together a list of the coolest fall shoes that I'm already losing my mind over. I spent an afternoon going through the selections at my favorite retailers from Shopbop to Nordstrom and Net-a-Porter to Zara and I can honestly say that the pairs you're about to see below will have you ready to wave goodbye to summer.
Now let's talk specifics. With so many fresh shoe trends happening right now, who would I be to discriminate one over another? From cool clogs to funky cowboy boots, sleek knee-highs to retro sneakers, there are more styles below than I could possibly acquire for myself, but I've gone ahead and featured them all here for you because when it comes to options, more is more. Just keep scrolling to see the styles I'm freaking out over and know you will too.
I spotted these all over the street style scene in Copenhagen and anticipate they'll continue to be a hit throughout the rest of fashion month.
Okay, flat mules, I see you making a comeback.
I loved the loafer version from last fall and these are just as good (if not better).
I low-key have an addiction to Vagabond's boots. They're so well made for the price point.
Birkenstock's just gave their classic clogs a fresh spin, and I'm obsessed.
I saw our editor Jasmine wearing these recently and they immediately went on my wishlist.
The start of fall always calls for a fresh pair of Converse.
When two cool brands get together, the results are next-level.
Everything I want in a sneaker right now: they're classic but a little retro.
Ballet flats are getting a rebrand this fall. Tell a friend.
Speaking of fall, this new trend could replace moto jackets.
