A Feel For It: Our Favorite Textured Footwear

I know what you’re thinking: there are so many fabrics, feels, and patterns trending this fall, it’s hard to tie it all together. A little advice? Tip-toe into texture with a luxurious statement boot.

Just like pairing opulent, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, keep the rest of your outfit simple and sleek (think head-to-toe neutrals or slim-fitting denim), drawing attention solely to your feet. Here’s a small selection of ways to step out in style (clockwise from top left):

The calf hair bootie: Accessorizing with touch of calf hair is an easy way to upgrade your look to autumn office chic. Opt for a wild print and a sky-high, textured heel like this one (if you dare).

The tri-textured wedge: Proof that good things come in threes, this style layers lavish materials (oxblood leather, thick tweed, and faux-wood accents) for a unique architectural concept.

The Southwestern knee high: Who says you can’t wear Jack Rogers all year ‘round? These sturdy soles sport a tapestry of fall color, with woven detail and signature whipstitching to boot.

Our Fall 500 Boutique opens Saturday, October 6 at 11AM ET.
