These Will Be the Most Important Fall Shoe Trends

We'd be hard-pressed to come up with many things (sartorially speaking) that are more exciting than the arrival of new fall shoe styles. And trust us when we tell you that  they're really good this year. We scoured the F/W 16 runways and the new arrivals from some of your favorite retailers to find the footwear everyone will be wearing in a matter of weeks.

We narrowed it down to eight must-have shoe trends, but not to worry—we're not saying you should go out and purchase eight pairs of shoes at once! Choose the right ones to invest in based on your personal style and wardrobe, but don't be afraid to take risks. For example, those feathered shoes that you don't think you can pull off are actually more wearable than you think, and could add a major dose of directional style to even the simplest pieces in your fall wardrobe.

We searched high and low to present you with the coolest options for each footwear trend, settling on a whopping 24 pairs of new fall shoes for you to choose from (and start wearing before all of your friends).

Keep scrolling to see them in action on the fall runways and shop them all at a variety of price points!
