Give Your Feet A Break With These Editor-Approved Fall Flats

This is perfect timing, because with New York Fashion Week just around the corner, I’m on the hunt for fancy footwear that is both high style and tolerable to navigate the city on a 12-hour day. Accordingly, I’ve rounded up my 10 favourite flat fall shoes that are anything but pedestrian. Keep reading to see which covet-worthy picks made the cut.

3.1 Phillip Lim

Alexa Oxford ($450) in Black

Zipper detailing lends these classic black oxfords an of-the-moment punk vibe, which I love right now.  

Manolo Blahnik

Lorenzabuc Brogues ($765)

It just doesn't get any more classic than these, which, I can promise, are going to go with everything.  

Collection Darby Calf Hair Loafers ($298)

I have a soft spot for animal print accessories paired with the lightest shades of pink and blue. I also see these working with a satin midi skirt and my worn-in Proenza Schouler t-shirt. 

Ribbon Lace Oxfords ($850) in Noir

I've been plotting this purchase since I saw them on the runway. They are going to be the finishing touch to a mid-shin slip dress and biker jacket. 

Bottega Veneta

Nero Calf Moccasin ($820)

A minimalist take on the classic penny loafer, these moccasins will complement the oversized furry coat I've just purchased for winter.  

Robert Clergerie

Roelf Laced Shoes ($728) in Dark Blue Colour

Futuristic colorblocking on a traditional brogue? Now we're talking!  These will look great with a navy cigarette pant and a white oxford shirt.  

Embellished Satin Loafers ($810)

Oh Consuela, breaking all the rules again—who would think to put a statement necklace on satin loafers?  Thank you! 

Cap Toe Patent Leather Smoking Sneakers ($550)

The perforated metal cap toe on this slipper gives it a western vibe, which is an under-the-radar trend for the season. 

Keith2 High Vamp Loafers ($100) in Tan

Tassels make me very happy, and this pair is going to work perfectly with cropped Levi's 501s and a cashmere V-neck.

Basic Black Slip-On Shoes ($36)

The name says it all! These are clever substitute for the default ballet flat.
