It’s FINALLY starting to get cooler around here. At least for a few days – it will be back up to 90 by next Tuesday (insert eye rolling emoji.) However, during this brief foray into 65 degree temps, I’ve been inspired to find some new fall shoes. If you remember from this post, my feet are old, and I need good support. SO, I thought I’d do a round up of some fall shoes that won’t kill your feet. The shoes that make this list have to meet at least one of these criteria: 1) are marketed as having good arch support, 2) I have them and know they are good, or 3) they’re the type of shoe an orthotic insert can be easily slipped into. (I use these orthotics, the same brand my dad uses. My little sister says that makes me old. Then, I reminder her she just turned 30. She left me alone after that.)
For all of you who still feel like you’re 23, but who’s feet are telling you otherwise, check out what I came up with!
Let’s be honest. No one has time for shoe laces. A women needs cute, supportive shoes she can slip her feet into without even really thinking about it.
These Born shoes are very similar to a pair of Frye boat shoes I bought last year (shown on my feet above – sadly, no longer available.) They have a slight arch support, so aren’t necessarily great for walking around in the city all day – but perfect for school drop off, grocery shopping, etc…
Here’s another cute boat shoe option. The reviews are good, and I’ve heard Uggs are pretty supportive. Good thing about Nordstroms – you can order online and they have free return shipping. You’re welcome.
I just ordered these babies this morning. They’re on sale at Madewell right now, and there’s a code for an additional 30% off! I have no idea if they’re comfortable or not, but I’ve been wanting a dressier slip on for a while. Based on the pic, I’m guessing they don’t have much arch support, but a girl’s gotta live.
Dr. Scholl’s. The ultimate in old people shoes. However, they’ve upped their game over the past few years. I’ve been eyeing these leather slip ons for a while. They’re having a 30% off everything sale right now, so this might be my chance.
Not only are my feet high maintenance, but like I revealed in this post, I’m short. Meaning, booties don’t overwhelm my short legs. I’ve only found one pair of tall boots that work, and I’m hoping they never wear out…I’m always on the hunt for cute new booties to add to my collection. Here are a few options I’d like to try out, and a couple I already have and love.
I love the classic styling and low heel of this pair from Kork Ease. Cognac is always a favorite color for me. Also, Kork Ease shoes are listed in the “comfort shoes” section on the Nordstrom site. Bonus! The reviews also say they give good support.
This one is also from Kork Ease. I like the casual, worn in look and these would go with just about everything.
These Madewell booties are super classy, and I’ve been on the hunt for a good black boot. The heel looks like it would give me some height, but not be so high it hurts my arch.
My aunt got me these rain boots for Christmas last year (thanks Aunt Gwen!) and I love them. We don’t get much rain in the Bay Area, but when we do it’s nice to have something to schlep around in. These probably wouldn’t be good for snowy areas, but of course, Sorel makes other more heavy duty boots. These are really comfortable, and my orthotics easily slip in.
I also own these SeaVees boots! My other sister-in-law talked me into buying them off Sierra Trading Post (she’s addicted – and watch out, the addiction is contagious…I mean, $188 boots for $60? Plus an extra 25% off? Sold.) These boots had me at “inspired by the 1960 Winter Olympics in Lake Tahoe.” The cabin we go to regularly is right by the Olympic ski area, so the purchase was pretty much inevitable. SUPER comfy, and again, fit my orthotics nicely.
Everyone needs a few cute pairs of sneakers to wear around town. Plus, atheleisure. You gotta have some good, supportive kicks to make your workout clothes look like they’re street worthy.
These cute sneakers are from the same company, SeaVees, my lace up boot are from. So, I know they’re high quality. The grey felt is on trend for this season, and you can add extra support with orthotics if you need it.
I bought a pair of these Sauconys in maroon last year, and I wear them ALL THE TIME. They go with everything. Do yourself a favor and get a pair.
So many options, so little space in my online shopping cart…
How about you? Any cute shoes you’ve been eyeing for the fall?
