These Are the 8 Biggest Fall 2021 Shoe Trends, Period

by KRISTEN NICHOLS

This season, we're already seeing a number of fall 2021 shoe trends gain momentum. Sure, there are plenty that we could have predicted from the F/W 21 runway shows, but I always find it interesting to see which ones actually garner popularity among the fashion set. Looking to celebs, Instagram, and the street style scene, it's already clear which shoe trends are the must-own pieces for the season ahead.

Styles like clogs, basketball sneakers, and saturated shades have already landed among the front-runners, while chunky knee-high boots are the popular style from 2020 that is proving to be just as in demand a year later. Ahead, see the eight fall shoe trends to know about in 2021 that I predict will be huge for the months ahead. They already have the stamp of approval from fashion people, so now is the time to add them to your new-season wardrobe.

Can we talk about the second-skin-boot trend for a minute? Sure, they came around several seasons back, but now, they feel fresher than ever.
