Fall Footwear Preview

By Maggie Malach

After a long summer of flaunting your pedicure, it’s finally time to start tucking away your toes. While you relish those last few days of flip-flop appropriate weather, start stocking up on the best of what fall 2010 has to offer.

Known for their ultra-comfy boat shoes, Sperry Top-Sider also has super-cute flats. These Women’s Skiff Slip On, $55, are a perfect blend of loafers and moccasins and come in a great neutral gray. These versatile shoes can be worn with cropped jeans or a wide-leg trouser.  An added bonus? Like boat shoes, the sole is designed to be slip-proof.

When the weather dips into frigid temperatures, nothing will keep you warm like a comfy pair of boots. This pair of Aerosoles Red Line, $89, are ideal for wearing over skinny jeans or leggings. The decorative hardware at the ankle and knee adds a little zing of style that will complement any outfit.

For those occasions that require something fancier than flats or boots, be sure to invest in a pair of platform heels. This trend has been cropping up for the past few seasons and will continue to make an appearance into the winter. This Madden Girl Righteous Pump, $39.95, is a guaranteed statement red shoe. Worn with slacks, jeans or a skirt, the red color will set off any outfit and definitely add a little drama.
