It’s nearly time to put the sandals away and let the boots come out to play.

Yes, you heard us, the seasons are slowly changing and it is time to prepare for the upcoming shift.

And we think the best part about moving into autumn/winter is the shoes.

Colder month shoes are significant in comparison to their summer counterparts. Instead of just a lonely strap, there’s more to work with and enjoy – not to mention the comfort element.

For the final quarter of the year, there’s a range of styles you’ll be seeing everywhere.

As always there are classics, a good trainer, and even a surprise or two along the way.

Here are the five soon-to-be ‘it’ shoes of autumn.


Black loafers & Other Stories

Our top pick are these & Other Stories beauties, which have a small heel for added height and leg elongation.

Adidas Samba trainers

When it comes to heels, the higher the better. Thanks to Versace and Valentino, heels are higher than ever but because they are platformed, our comfort is intact.
