Sure, we’ll miss the flip flops but fall boots and shoes can be just as, or even more, fun. Autumn is the time to break out all the textured styles you’ve been hiding away during the warm summertime weather, and layer up in suede, leather, and wool. We’ve picked out some of our favorite brands of fall boots and fall shoes for outfitting stylish feet as the weather cools.
12 of Our Favorite Fall Boots & Shoes for 2020
New kicks are a must every season, and with the breezes beginning to blow, the days getting shorter, and the cooler weather moving in, there is no better time to get out doors and smell the freshly fallen leaves of the most fabulous season, fall! This fall, and all year long, New Balance is here to help get you outside and on your feet, spending time with friends and family engaged in healthy and fun activities. Since the summer heat is finally subsiding, at least in some places, there is no better time for leisurely evening strolls, afternoon bike rides, kickin’ it at the basketball courts, or even hiking on the gorgeous fall weekends, and New Balance is here for it all.
This fall we love the Men’s 990v5, the Men’s 857v2, and the Women’s Fresh Foam 860v11. Ideal for their winter wardrobe, both the Men’s 990v5 and the Men’s 857v2 are available in solid black, or additional colors allowing these cross-training kicks to pair with everything from gym shorts to jeans and still look fresh and fabulous. The 990v5 features a pigskin/mesh upper and ENCAP midsole technology for support and maximum durability. Available in widths from extra narrow to double extra wide and men’s sizes 7-16, there is a pair for him perfect for the fall. Another favorite, the Men’s 857v2 is a trainer featuring all the best technology with a durable leather upper keeping him stylish with a classic look from the gym to the streets. Offering superior stability and ultimate comfort, the 857v2 also boasts an ENCAP midsole and N2 comfort for premium shock absorption.
Finally, make sure to pick up a pair for her so she can hit the streets for those early morning runs, or chase the kids through the park in the afternoons. New Balance’s new Fresh Foam 860v11 provides stable cushioning for a comfortable run short or even long distances. Featuring a mesh upper, Fresh Foam midsole for a lightweight but cushioned ride, and proven stability with a snug and supportive fit, the 860v11 will let her get in her miles (or her steps) both in style and grace.

The almond-toe adds a touch of femininity to this unique sneaker, so whether you’re wearing your favorite little black dress or your most comfortable jeans, The Weekender is here to keep your style game top-notch so you can ditch the heels.

One of the best parts about fall is all the fall boots and shoes, but finding the perfect fall boots can be hit or miss. When we think of finding the perfect fit we immediately recommend Naturalizer. Each shoe is crafted with your comfort in mind. Using high-quality materials and keeping your comfort in consideration creates an irresistible fall footwear experience that you just can’t miss!
For example, the Kamora Wide Calf is luxury delivered in a box! This boot boasts a leather upper and an almond toe. The elegance cannot be understated with the slit straps and oh-so-perfect heel. The N5 Contour+ technology provides extra cushioning exactly where we need it, especially in a pair of boots we will never want to take off. Combined with the smooth, breathable lining and non-slip, flexible outsole, this boot will take you anywhere you want to go this fall, and it will take you there in style.
For a statement fall shoe without a heel, we love the 27 Edit Harlie. This shoe is understated while delivering an uncompromising style. Premium leather, suede or calf hair upper is supported by a full leather lining. The insole provides extra cushioning for natural comfort and breathability, and like any footwear presented by Naturalizer, this shoe will carry you throughout your day with elegance, comfort, and style.
Spending so much time outdoors this fall means having footwear and fall boots that can stand up to the elements. Whether it’s an adventure on a new hiking trail with family, or getting some much needed social distancing in with friends around a bonfire, you’ll need footwear that can take the wet, keep you warm, and feel comfortable all day long. Stay comfortable and connected to life with BEARPAW footwear.
The Women’s Kalalau Hiking Boot is the perfect transition to fall boot or year-round boot. It’s an adjustable, lace-up waterproof hiker made with cow-suede and heavy-duty nylon. Take on the wet and snow, while keeping feet dry and warm with its fleece lining. The black body goes with almost anything. It’s like the little black dress of hiking boots.
For men who like the added ankle support or actually need a heavy-duty hiker, the Men’s Brock Wide has ample room, and is treated with NeverWet® technology for water and stain resistance. It’s a great fall boot for running errands or doing that crisp morning yard work. For extra comfort, it has a memory foam insole. Talk about walking on clouds…
Kids need to keep their feet warm in fall boots too. There are so many adorable pairs from BEARPAW to choose from, but we love the classic look of the Toddler Elle Zipper and Kids’ Elle. Both lightweight and comfortable, the Elle design pairs well with jeans, leggings, skirts – you name it. Dress it up or dress down for comfort – however you dress it, the Elle will give you a stylish child with ease. It’s the must-have fall boot this season.

We are also loving Livie & Luca’s fall and winter collection. Metallics, suedes, glitter, and animal prints; these classically styled shoes have a modern fresh spin on them that we can’t get enough of. There’s a style for every child and we are here for it!
