Fall... it brings to mind vivid reflections of colorful falling leaves, a warm crackling fire, and crisp cool air.
But for the fashion freak, fall only means one things - shoes. Boots, booties, flats, pumps, this season has it all.
The Fall 2011 runways were trampled by an array of fabulous footwear.
Phillip Lim featured sleek leather boots as well as pony haired-animal print ones. Both had the look of a man's loafer. Hence, they complement a menswear look. Alexandre Birman showcased a quilted leather version as well.
Alejandro Ingelmo channeled some space-age style with his metallic and black leather boots. One of the standout trends for fall is metallics on shoes. Ingelmo also featured huge monochromatic gold and silver platform wedges. Balmain's looked like straight up moon boots. So spacey.
The Alexander McQueen line has punk rock down to a science. The collection's lace up stiletto ankle boot comes in black leather, python, and studded.
Alexander Wang brought focus to the chunky heel. It is a take on a 60s/70s staple but with a modern feel. Aperlai did its chunky heels in a funky colorblocked pattern.
Brian Atwood donned his black patent leather pumps with white feathers. Jean-Michel Cazabat's leopard print booties are drool-worthy. Bally covered its stiletto ankle boots completely in curly fur.
Camilla Skovgaar crafted her wedges to perfection with a tough-looking ridged sole. Zoraide's black suede platforms come complete with corset laces and some red python print.
Here are some suggested options for your shopping pleasure.
