Shoes You Need for Fall 2023 

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Tampa chapter.

It’s fashion month, which means all eyes have been on the runways to see what themes are going to be highlighted this Fall. Every Fall, I look forward to this as it gives me an excuse to buy new shoes, and this year’s trends are way too good to be ignored! 

If you are someone who loves comfort, lucky for you, cool girl sneakers are still in. This is because they can be worn all year round and become staple pieces in your wardrobe. 

New Balance: 

The New Balance brand has been significantly more popular in the past year and will continue in Fall 2023. This is because they are a perfect combination of functional and expressing personal style. If you are going to choose New Balances for your fall sneaker, I would recommend the 550s as they are classics or the 9060s for a more chunky sneaker look. 


Adidas has had its fair share of coming and going, but this Fall, they are trending after influencers Haley Bieber and Bella Hadid were seen wearing sambas. These shoes also bring a sense of nostalgia for many people. If you are looking to just keep up with the trends and need a new daily shoe that matches everything, I would recommend black or white sambas. For those who are looking for something with a little spice, I would recommend the Adidas gazelles, as they come in many different colors. The colors that are trending for this Fall are the red or green. 

Of course, you can’t have fall fashion without boots. 

Biker boots: 

For this trend, you have a lot of flexibility to customize it to your personal style. You can wear black or brown, knee-high, medium, or low, one buckle or five. These are the perfect fall boots for dressing your outfit up or down. 

Cowgirl boots: 

The cowgirl boot trend is not going anywhere. However, this Fall, choosing a red boot as an accent color is more of what you want to go for over just white or black. 

Last Fall, 2023, the shoe trend was ballet flats. 

Pointe Ballet flats: 

Personally, I love shoe trends that aren’t going to leave my feet aching, making ballet flats a perfect choice. These are an elegant shoe choice but have been elevated this Fall with designers adding a glossy touch, bows, and buckles. To succeed at this trend, you need ones that are very pointy, and it’s even better if they are red, as dark cherry red is the color of the season. 

These are just a few examples of Fall 2023 shoe fashion trends that will help you revamp your style. The shoes above will leave you plenty of room to fill your closet with classics and more avant-garde looks.
