Your selection in shoes can set the tone for the rest of your outfit. Having the right footwear is also important in maintaining your posture and level of comfort. Here are some stylish, comfortable shoes that you should be sporting this fall.
The approach of autumn often means that there’s a return of rain. Don’t be caught in a freak storm and have to suffer with wet feet all day just because you refused to change out of your heels. Rain boots have changed in their level of style. Uggs have some very nice bold and glossy footgear with comfortable cushioning, and Joules rain boots are walkable and gorgeous with their colorful designs and prints. You can also turn any pair of comfortable boots into raingear by investing in a little bit of waterproofing. Make sure to apply any waterproofing in an even coat so that you don’t give your boots a mottled appearance.
Flats are the timeless way to enjoy comfort throughout the day. There are numerous styles so that you don’t feel like you’re just one with the crowd. Mary Jane flats are making a comeback this year, and Eileen Fisher flats add a classic charm to your elegant look. Loafers are also a popular choice and they come in different colors and textures to help you really match them to any outfit ensemble. You can select from wide-toed to narrow in order to increase your level of comfort.
Low rider boots are comfortable and sleek. What this means for you is that they look good with slacks or jeans. You can wear them around the office or even for when you’re out on the town. The benefit of this type of shoe is that it’s versatile because it comes in a heeled variety and in flats depending on your preference. Some excellent varieties with warm autumn colors include Vionic and Naturalizer.
Sneakers are the ultimate in comfort. This doesn’t mean that they still can’t be stylish and useful for any occasion. New sneakers are becoming more fashionable in nature as people realize that the age old classic is better for posture and when you have to be on your feet all day. Some trendy brands with both bright and classy sneaker choices include Tretorns and Gola sneakers.
Clogs are back in style. Even some of the heeled variety of shoes are more clog-like in nature. This is better for your feet because you don’t have to endure pinched toes. You can add a little pizazz to your selection of clog by going with a different style of strap that will set you apart from the crowd. Dansko’s Dorothy platform pump combines cute style with refined professionalism, and Swedish Hasbeen’s covered low clogs have a variety of bright and muted colors for your everyday needs.
Shoes are something that everyone can use to upgrade their outfits. Use these ideas so that you don’t have to sacrifice your comfort to showcase the stylish aspects of your footwear.
