While we’ve already gushed about the cool, fashion-forward bag shapes soon to dominate the scene, shoes are an equally important story to tell. Fall’s footwear trends focus on bold colors (like fire-engine red) and silhouette revivals (welcome back, slouchy boots). They’re meant to grab attention. Ahead, our ultimate shopping guide to six covetable styles that are about to blow up—and we’ve got them at every price.

Fall Shoe Trends
Ever since glittery slouchy boots graced the Fall 2017 Saint Laurent runway (you know the ones), we were certain the throwback was going to be huge. Whether sparkly-chic or satin-sleek, the scrunchy silhouette is a fresh alternative to over-the-knee—and looks über-chic with a midi.
Smashing Sparkle Knee Boot
Sateen High Heel Boots
Stark white footwear is only gaining momentum. No longer seen as clinical, the latest brights come in polished, modern pumps.
Jump Slingback Kitten Heels
Decadent and flashy, luxe textured shoes encrusted with crystals, stones and bejeweled buckles are adornments for your feet.
Embellished Satin Pump
Crushed Velvet Embellished Mules
Not for the faint of heart, red-hot footwear—from vampy stilettos to demure kitten heels—promises to be fall's biggest trend.
Aramis Patent-Leather Mules
Slinky, clingy calf boots with sharp pointed toes and barely there heels continue to be a craze. Vibrant hues and prints fit seamlessly under trousers and skirts for a slimming, statement result.
Velvet Ankle Boots
Direct Pointy Sock Boots
Grunge is cool again as clunky, lace-up boots offer an edgy, tough moment to offset feminine ensembles.
