Casual Fall Shoe Trends To Try

Casual Fall Shoe Styles for Fall | Wedge Suede Sneakers

When you think of fall, there are some shoes we all think of: over-the-knee boots, cognac riding boots and black leather booties.  Today I wanted to highlight some of the less thought about shoes for fall.   Casual shoes – like statement sneakers will be very popular for fall.   Casual shoes tend to be ones we grab a lot because they are comfortable and versatile, but sometimes we forget to think about them when stocking up on new pieces for the season.

I’m teaming up with Macy’s for their Biggest Shoe and Boot Sale, which starts on 10/2 and runs until 10/14. During the sale, you can buy 1 shoe and save 30%, or buy 2+ shoes and save 40% using code BIG. I decided to pick up some casual shoe trends for fall. I picked up the Steve Madden Wedgie Wedge Sneakers as well as a pair of the Steve Madden Cliff Sneakers.  Statement sneakers are a fun trend to try this season and you know I like to save on trend pieces.

Wedge Sneakers

The first pair I knew I wanted for fall were these Steve Madden Wedgie Wedge Sneakers. This style sneaker is definitely on-trend this season and I can totally see why: they are SO versatile. They have a suede finish and are extremely comfortable.  You can wear these sneakers with jeans or leggings and they give the illusion of a longer leg because of the wedge heel.

As you can see I dressed these sneakers down by pairing them with skinny jeans and a Nike Sportswear camo sweatshirt (wearing XS for reference). You can also dress shoes like this up and wear them with black skinny jeans and a nice blouse and it would totally work too! You’ll  find endless ways to wear these shoes all fall (and winter.)

Casual Retro Sneakers

The second shoe I picked for fall was the Steve Madden Cliff Sneakers. Now, these come in some crazy color options if you’re up for it. But, I opted for the more muted white/silver. I love that these are a classic sneaker style with a little bit of a twist. The heel has a fun dotted design (almost like a cheetah print) and the toe has a metallic, silver detail. They sort of have a 90’s retro vibe to them, which is definitely coming back in full swing this season. It’s a fun way to play with the retro vibe without going overboard.

I love sneakers like this with joggers for weekday chores like running errands and basic #momlife stuff. I’m wearing Clavin Klein Joggers from Macy’s here in XS. Because the sneaker is a little more trendy, I feel like it can make a basic outfit of joggers and a sweatshirt just look a little more put together.

If you’re looking to stock up on shoes for the fall, definitely make sure to shop Macy’s Biggest Shoe and Boot Sale! Grab some casual fall shoes like I did, or opt for the more classic fall styles. During the sale buy more to save more, you can buy 1 shoe and save 30%, or buy 2+ shoes and save 40% using code BIG!

If you’re looking for fall boots, here are some of my favorites from Macy’s:

After this post went live I was notified that some sneakers I shared were excluded from the sale.   My apologies to those that were frustrated by that.  I gathered up a few statement sneakers I love that are apart of of Macy’s shoe promotion:

    I mean… I appreciate the thought, but the Wedgie sneakers aren’t even eligible for the sale/promo, so it’s kinda sh*tty that you showcased them on this post without disclosing that they’re excluded.

      When I did the post I didn’t realize the shoes were excluded from the sale. Sorry for the inconvenience it seems to have caused you.
