Our shoes tell a lot about ourselves yet they also take quite a beating.  They carry our weight often taking thousands of steps a day.  Yet they are often the last part of our ensembles we think about when putting together our look. Here are just a few some styles to up your ante as you consider completing your fall looks.
Prada

Loafers are always a good choice for as a shoe to maintain in your arsenal.  Whether trendier like the pair show above by Prada in burnt brown or the classic horse-bit loafer by Gucci shown in black (bottom left)., they are perfect for dressy attire looks, business casual and also work well with jeans.  As the weather turns more inclement, try the horse-bit loafer in rubber by Gucci.  It carries the classic loafer styling using a more foul weather friendly material.

Florsheim by Duckie Brown

Brogues are very popular for the autumn season. Wingtips which fall into this category, in browns and blacks, work well with traditional suits as well as more casual looks such as jeans.  What’s even nicer is that we are seeing these shoes in interesting hues and even lace-less versions. These styles allow for greater versatility and flexibility for the fall.  Ducky Brown for Florsheim offers this lace-less version in indigo.  Many of the lace-less versions actually come with shoelaces for additional options.

John Varvatos Star

Like the loafer, the Chelsea boot is another staple that constantly pops up from year to year. Characterised by elastic siding for ease in slipping on and off, this boot was originally associated with horseback riding. Now, these boots work well with the classic outdoor looks as well as the trendier styles of today.  John Varvatos Star has a wingtipped version in brown.  Related to the Chelsea, the Beatle boot offers more modern options for the season. Just as the name suggests, the boots, made popular by the 60’s music legends, hearken back to the hipster looks of those times.  Despite the vintage flair, these boots work well with the slimmer suits and pants that we are seeing this season.  For inspiration, check out the pair shown below from Magnanni.

Our feet are some of the most hard working parts of our body.  Why not reward them with a stylish pair of kicks for all their hardwork?  They’ll look good and you’ll only enhance the rest of your attire. Until next time, Happy Shopping!
