Living life in socks and slippers finally feels like a distant memory. Recent runways have offered a promising (footwear) future that we’re already stepping into. Allow us to get you caught up on all the trends. This fall, we’re taking our boots, loafers, and pumps to the next level (and if you’re as daring as our favorite designers, you won’t be afraid to add a platform to all of the above). We’re taking a stab at the boldest of them all with a fringed sandal but also simplifying things with an elevated update on the classic western boot. No look is complete without the right shoe—scroll on to discover your new favorite pair.
