Think feet, and then work your way up. That's my no-fail strategy for planning out outfits — shoes always make or break the outfit, which is why footwear is a key category to update if you're looking to switch things up for fall. While we've gotten used to the standard of wearing fuzzy slippers at home ar, we're excited that this upcoming new season will bring the back a few of our favourite trends — but taken to a whole new level. We're talking amplified platforms, texture, cowboy boots and statement clogs that will change the way you look at your current favourite pair of shoes.
Below, we've rounded up three of our favourite shoe and boot trends for fall 2021.
The classic 1461 shoe has been update with a new hight. Built with the brand's highest platform, this shoe is crafted from Polished Smooth leather and welted in place with signature yellow stitching. Beyond fall, we consider it a year-round staple.
