The Best Three Shoes For Fall from Nordstrom

Pumps, Booties and OTK Boots

Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give the girl right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” As we settle into November, I wanted to share the best three shoes for fall. Best of all, each pair is incredibly versatile.

Accessories make the outfit, don’t you think? In fact, I believe there are three shoes you need for fall. All of which will start your day off on the right foot. Literally.

Each morning, I wake up with my outfit already selected from the night before. Shoes, though? Totally different story. I think of them as the icing on the cake to any look. Picking the right pair, and investing in the correct styles, makes all the difference.

Best Three Shoes for Fall

Take Cinderella. Can you imagine if she opted for a furry flats versus that glass slipper? There’s no way Prince Charming would have taken her seriously (or gone to such great lengths to find the woman of his dreams). Obvi.

Often, I get nervous buying shoes online, in case they don’t fit. Hence, my go-to online destinations to find the best three shoes for fall? Nordstrom. They have free shipping, free returns, and I never have to worry about being stuck with something that doesn’t work.

Consequently, they’ve become my my “sole mate.” From designer shoes to pumps, boots to booties, rain boots to flats, sneakers and beyond, they’ve got ’em all. Take these suede pumps for instance. My mood is immediately lifted whenever I wear them!

Black Suede Pumps

A black suede pump is the perfect neutral to pair with most styles you’ll wear this fall – jeans, leather leggings or pants, dresses, skirts, etc. I’ve found this pair to be the perfect height. Seriously! I can wear them nearly all day at work or at an event and never be in pain.

Truly, I’m obsessed with this style! Every woman needs a classic black and nude pump. Generally, you’ll never regret the investment or purchase – especially when they are reasonably priced. Looking for another solution? I also love this brand for attainable footwear options.

Over the Knee Boots

The over the knee boot is here to stay. A few years ago, the style become very popular, and many people were wondering if it was just a fad. Thankfully, it’s is now a classic.

My version is definitely an investment, and I’ve never regretted the purchase. If you consider cost per wear, it’s certainly worth the price tag!

Black Booties

While over the knee boots and pumps are often easy to find, I’ve always seemed to struggle with black booties. Some styles are too short, too tall, so wide, too tight – the list goes on and on.

Thankfully, this version by Sam Edelman is perfect. It pairs incredibly well with pants, cropped jeans and even dresses.

    Women mostly wear long heels boots which is good but sometimes if their feet are not comfortable and they are not of their size causes serious injuries. So the point is that boots must be comfortable and their size should be accurate.
