While all of the limited-edition merch at Fashion’s Night Out is surely tempting, there are only so many pieces available — if you’re not willing to throw elbows, you might be SOL. Our suggestion: Console yourself with next-best thing and snag some new shoes. The latest Shop-A-Matic gathers up some of fall’s most covetable footwear, from outdoorsy boots to preppy loafers. Click ahead to see a handful of our favorites.
Tap & Slither Flats
Why We Like It: These sparkly snakeskin flats are fancy enough to complement a cocktail dress.
Suede Ankle Bootie by Madewell
Why We Like It: A light-gray bootie with a low (read: easy to walk in) heel pairs perfectly with jeans for a go-to weekend staple.
7” MOCC Toe Engineer boots by Chippawa
Why We Like It: The rugged sole and sturdy straps were originally created for loggers and oil-field workers, but they work equally well to keep feet warm during slushy city winters.
The Suede Loafer by Florsheim by Duckie Brown
Why We Like It: Summer was all about the return of the boat shoe, so it’s not surprising that fall marked the comeback of another New England staple: the penny loafer. Made with a sleek gray suede, these are casual yet polished enough to be worn in place of sneakers.
Studded Loafer by Miu Miu
Why We Like It: Schoolgirl-inspired looks like pleated skirts and collegiate cardigans were a big trend on the fall runways. These studded loafers are an edgy twist on the look, keeping it from being too Lolita-esque.
