I don’t know about you, but I get really excited about autumn shoe trends. Perhaps it’s because they have a sort of back-to-school sheen to them, even if you left quite some time ago, or it’s just a welcome change from wearing sandals. Or maybe it’s because autumn is easily the best season out there. (Don’t @ me. It really is.) For 2021, there’s an abundance of autumn shoe trends that are worth getting hyped up about and are perfect for the coming cooler weather. But what I love the most is that there are some fun trends we haven’t seen for a while that are guaranteed to please plenty of fashion people.
After looking through all the runway collections for A/W 21, I’ve identified 12 trends that are key for this season. There are some classic, practical boots that will easily work for right now and for years to come. But then there are the more adventurous styles (yes, platform boots, I’m looking at you) as well as the more trend-led looks (such as the socks-and-sandals combo) that I can’t wait to wear.
