Fall Shoe Trends 2016: How Clogs Are Taking Over the Runway

Fall is the glorious season of boots, rich colors and textures, and cascading leaves. Sure we can depend upon our footwear staples like a go-to pair of black stiletto pumps, but the changing season inspires us all to try something new.

The runways of Fall Fashion Week in New York City showcased an array of trends predicted by designers at the top of their game, with each show creating a fantasy world that brought their visions to life. As promised by these designers, the new fall season brings a new opportunity to try a straight-from-the-runway look.

Our takeaway? Heels are soaring to new heights, buckles are back, platforms are proliferating, and each breakthrough utilizes luxurious materials to wrap our feet in comfort, whatever thickness the sole may be.

We’ve curated a short list of inspired fall shoe trends born from the visions of the fashion elite for those who wish to go beyond the basics:

  1. Ballet-inspired low-heel clogs – From traditional flats to lace-up ballerina shoes better suited for the sidewalk than the stage, the demure personality of this delicate style imbues fall fashion with sophistication.
  2. High heel clog mules – These shoes exude vintage glam but add a fresh modern flair as clogs like the Maya pull forward the iconic look.
  3. Retro-inspired platforms – The 70s meshed so fabulously with the 90s in the form of platforms worthy of a stroll, but this time; you’ll scale new heights in Sandgrens’ originals like the Zurich clog.
  4. Shearling –In 2016, designers took the classic clog boot look and transformed it into a cold weather staple. If it’s shearling you seek, Sandgrens carries a line of boots and clogs constructed with comfort and warmth in mind.
  5. A focus on composition – Luxurious leathers that pamper the sense of touch break out as a new fall must-have, and make the largest impact on a pair of sleek boots like Sandgrens’ Savannah clog boots.
