Build your shoe collection with my top four picks for fall

It’s that time of year again where the leaves are falling and the air is getting nice and crisp. It also means it’s time to swap out my summer shoes for my Autumn staples.

This year, I found my collection coming up short. Nothing’s worse than feeling underprepared in the chilly weather. After testing out these four essentials, I feel ready for whatever fall may bring. 

Favorite for the rain: Merry People’s Bobbi Ankle Rain Boot 

Finding a quality pair of rain boots that also fit my personal style has always been a struggle for me. With Merry People’s Bobby Ankle Rain Boot, I get everything I’ve wanted and needed.

First of all, their color selection cannot be beat. I chose the rust color and they go with everything. Secondly, they are top-notch cozy. I always found my feet getting sweaty and uncomfortable in other rain boots. Not with these. What sets these boots apart is the flexible neoprene lining, giving it a plushy texture and also working together with the high quality natural rubber to create a 100% waterproof boot. I love that these offer arch support, giving my feet that extra boost throughout the day.

Add these to your collection if you want something that’s both functional for rainy days, and stylish enough for those trips to the pumpkin patch. 

Favorite for style: Ariat’s Wexford Waterproof Chelsea Boot

Need something that you can wear for any occasion? My top pick is the Wexford Waterproof Chelsea Boot. I’ve worn these everywhere from the office to dinner with friends.

These have actually replaced my usual choice of the classic Blundstone Chelsea Boots. They have a slimmer, more chic appearance. Personally, I find that they offer great support and my feet feel great all day long. The Wexford’s are so easy to slip on, are beautifully lightweight, and are breathable and waterproof at the same time.

These are high quality boots, made to last. Once you get these in the mail, you will immediately be able to recognize the thought and care put into designing these boots. I can’t stop wearing them! 

Favorite for active: APL’s Women’s Techloom Dream

Very rarely do I have such a strong reaction to trying out a new pair of running shoes. The moment I slipped on the Techloom Dream’s, I knew something was different. These running/walking shoes are next level comfortable.

As someone with constant joint and aches in my hips and back, I could tell that these would support me through it all. You’ll immediately notice the TechLoom Dream Heavenly Ride™ midsole, created for maximum shock absorption and cushioning. It was intentionally designed to eliminate as much pressure, resistance, and shock out of each stride. Even better, the APL sockliner guides your foot into its natural position, allowing for your most efficient run.

For anyone looking for a shoe above the rest, the Techloom Dream offers support like none other. 

Favorite for the office: Everlane’s Modern Loafer

Looking for an elevated basic shoe for your office wardrobe? Need to update your old flats? Look no further. Everlane’s Modern Loafer is the perfect option for effortless, professional style.

While I work in an office, I also have moments where I need to be on my feet. Finding the perfect option has been a hassle. I love that these loafers check off all the boxes. They are easy to slip on before rushing out the door, have a sleek, put-together look, and are easy to style and pair with other neutrals in my closet.

Everlane has even added in extra padding and a foam-cushioned insole, meaning no break-in period. Add these to your wardrobe for your next interview, for a casual day at the office, or even to dress up a weekend outfit.
