Boot camp

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 10th April 2024

Put those sandals away – autumn has officially fallen, which means it’s time to close those toes as the crisp air settles in. And just like the leaves always change their colour, this season has brought in an array of autumn shoe trends and updates on the classics that you can bet your boots we’re obsessed with. 

This autumn, we’re pointing our toes towards versatility, structure, and paired-back sophistication, as well as one shoe trend that’s as silly as it is show-stopping. While pulling out your winter coats might still feel premature, these transeasonal shoes are sure to take you through the season in style. 

Knee High Boots

Rainproof and versatile, these boots were made for walking and that’s exactly what they’re here to do this autumn! Not only are knee high boots very much on trend, but they also let you keep summer dresses and minis in rotation despite the dropping temps. As a veritable wardrobe staple, knee high boots can step up even the most casual outfits, whether you’re putting them on full show with a short hem or offering a sleek peek under a full-length skirt. 2024 iterations of the boot include drawing on equestrian inspiration or opting for a bold print like snakeskin

Mary Janes

Nancy Drew called it first – Mary Janes are the it-shoe of the moment that manage to toe the line between preppy and punk with ease. Whether you’re strapping up a ballet pump or channelling your inner Bratz doll via dazzling platforms, the deeply Parisian shoe style has received a modern makeover we can’t get enough of. For an effortlessly chic look, we recommend styling your Mary Janes with slouchy trousers and a very French pop of red.

Chunky Loafers

Dubbed the ‘cool girl shoe’ for a reason, this heavy-tread style always has a place in our autumn wardrobes. Delightfully cushy thanks to its lug sole and perfect for adding the finishing touch to an androgynous ‘fit, the chunky loafer is a timeless essential with many uses. But, hey, don’t take our word for it – the loafer fan club includes the likes of Hailey Bieber, Elsa Hosk, and Bella Hadid, who are all often seen sporting a pair around town. 


Furry Shoes

When the cold hits, all you want to do is wrap your tootsies up in fluffy socks and get under your cosiest bed sheets. Your fave designers agree, and have spun that energy into autumn’s most iconic microtrend that might not be the most sensible, but is certainly a lot of fun. From teddy bear slides to feathery pumps, fuzzy and fluffy footwear has been sweeping the streets and runways alike. Reminiscent of house slippers, styling these pieces also doesn’t take a lot of effort – simply let them be the star of the show. For those looking to dip a toe into the trend, start with shearling-lined mules or embrace the full OTT look with head-turning heels on your next night out. Just make sure you check the weather forecast first; this look isn’t exactly waterproof.  


Square Toe

Despite the controversy of the Maison Margiela Tabi, the splitting style has ushered in a much more palatable trend to the forefront of the fashion zeitgeist – the square toe. In particular, we’re loving square toed flats. Serving as the modern take on traditional ballerinas, square toed flats have a structured silhouette that seamlessly pull together a polished look. Meanwhile, tapered toes have been given, well, the boot in favour of chunkier numbers across ankle, cowboy, and taller boot options.
