With the cooling weather, it’s time for many of us to put away the flip-flops and strappy sandals, and instead haul out the heavy boots and clunky loafers. But this shoe turnover can be especially tricky for commuters: They need good fall shoes for commuting, whether that’s taking a bike, train, or walking—or else the whole trip will be miserable. Pinched toes, uncomfortable bubbles, and chafed heels have the potential to ruin a day before it even starts, so comfort is key. But lucky for them, this upcoming fall seems to be all about comfort and excess.
While stilettos are always in, there is a special focus on low-to-the-ground looks. Small kitten heels and squat block heels reign supreme, and slides and loafers have gotten a maximalist makeover to make them feel more sartorial and less predictable. Gems decorate booties like antique broaches, sneakers get artistic touches, mules are wrapped in fur, and shoes are coming out in loud shades of velvet. Even if you have to make comfort a priority, that doesn’t mean you will be saddled with a boring, practical shoe. Ahead are 15 of the best fall shoes for commuters—arrive to work in style.
Give your high-tops a high fashion spin with this sleek and impeccably tailored pair. They look a little more “put together” than most classic kicks, so you can easily pull off wearing these into the office. And the chunky platform and subtle two-tone gives it a very “2017” spin, making them the perfect fashion statement for your morning commute.
We might have to pack away our comfy sandals with the seasons changing, but there are plenty of gorgeous fall shoes that will have any commuter’s back.
