The shoe rack is your closet's black hole, where both treasures and castoffs go to live, get lost, and linger. Yes, deep, dark secrets (like those flatform Sketchers from '99) hide among your understated work heels, strappy sandals, and running sneakers. But, with fall shopping already on the brain, making room for the new will require purging some of that old. So, after much thought and quite a few dust-bunny encounters, you've finally (albeit begrudgingly) tossed the threadbare and meh items from your rack’s ranks.
Now, you’re ready to shop a few worthy replacements — and we're bringing them to you. Ahead, we gathered 21 steppers that channel seven of fall’s best footwear trends — like candy-wrapper metallics, moody blues, and funky, rubber soles — for your consideration. Click through to check 'em out, but don't expect any of these standout numbers to get lost in the depths of your wardrobe any time soon.
