I Spent 4 Hours Shopping For Cool Fall Sneakers So You Don't Have To

The best fall sneakers



During fall and winter, I basically stick to two types of footwear: boots and sneakers. I actually don't wear sneakers all that much when it's hot out, so only shopping for sneakers this time of year has become the norm for me. This fall, in particular, I've really been on fall sneaker high alert, as comfort is the biggest trend of 2021. And there are so many cool styles on the market that I naturally had to share them.

So what makes a sneaker a fall sneaker,  you ask? I find the color palette to be key (think camel, red, navy, and off-white), as well as special details like suede, snakeskin, and fur accents. I've been on the hunt for sneakers that will look best with sweaters, jeans, and sweatpants, and will be reserving my athletic sneakers for workouts. If this fits the bill of what you're looking for too, keep scrolling to shop the 25 stylish fall sneakers I took several hours narrowing down.
