Fall is the number one season that gets me most excited about shoes! I always like to get an early start on my fall shoe shopping because the best styles always sell out first. This year, there’s a plethora of statement styles that span across cowboy boots, platform heels, shearling designs, and beyond. It won’t take much effort to find the right pair to take your fits to the next level. That said, it can be hard to narrow down the best fall shoe trends to buy into. My best tip is to prioritize wearability and comfort in order to hone in on those essential styles you can wear on repeat throughout the season. Ahead, you’ll find the six trends I’m most excited for.

Cowboy boots have seemingly made their way into every girl’s closet this year, and I’ve finally caved into the trend. Whether you wear them with a mini dress or style them with jeans and a shacket in early fall, they add a certain ease and chicness that can’t be replicated.
I’ve never given up on over-the-knee boots all these years – but they just so happen to be one of fall’s trendiest styles. I can’t wait for the weather to finally turn so I can wear them with shirt dresses, mini hemlines and over leggings.
Knee High Boots
In addition to OTK boots, mid-calf and knee-high styles will be prevalent. Both structured designs and slouchy shafts are fair game.
Heavy duty, moto-inspired boots will also be having their moment thanks to the emerging bikercore aesthetic trend. Notable features of this shoe trend will be buckles and studs – both of which will give any outfit an edgy makeover.

Pointed Toe Heels
Square toe shoes have remained supreme for some time now – but this fall, expect classic, pointed toe shoes to come back into the limelight. From classic pumps to kitten heels, you’ll always look on point.

Embellished, Cinderella-esque footwear has been taking off with the fashion set for a while now. It isn’t too late to grab yourself a pair if you’ve yet to jump on the bandwagon. As we head into the holidays, they’ll add that glam touch to your looks.
