Wiggle your toes. Did your defiantly slide-sheathed feet just feel a subtle breeze? Or are you a sandal naysayer who’s been laced with anxiety, counting down the days until fall shoes hit store shelves?
Whatever the case may be, we get it. When it comes to seasonal footwear, we believe everyone should stand their ground and rock styles that make them feel like they’re walking on air. Luckily, autumn’s most sought-after silhouettes don’t stand in anyone’s sartorial way. From chic, borrowed-from-the-boys flats to well-heeled pumps, there’s a shoe (or five!) to fit every aesthetic.
For Fall 2016, it’s less about cozy-but-yawny minimalist sneakers and more about architectural forms that are equally as versatile. Think over-the-knee boots a la Anna Sui, who showed them in equally on-trend red velvet. Picture the block-heeled pumps and ankle boots that sauntered down the runways of Tory Burch and Hugo Boss, respectively. Consider the merits of a caged heel, favoured by celebutantes like Zendaya Coleman and Kylie Jenner.
