40+ Women's Shoes for Fall

If you can dream it, it's here in our women's footwear roundup for fall. By Piera Gelardi and Allison Sparkuhl
With Fashion Week fast approaching, it's crucial to make sure your "see and be seen" credos are in working order. We've dished on leather pants, florals, and tailored plaids, but left out that most important of front-row must-haves—the perfect shoe. Moreover, we're hitting the time of year where winter wear can restrict your flair for fashion (though stylish layering may be God's gift to woman). But there's nothing like a great pair of stacked heels, go-to oxfords, or mock hiking boots peeping out below a cold-weather ensemble to ward off the weather. So, whether you're stepping into the tents or just stepping into fall, our list of the best kicks for the season is definitely required reading.
