The Fall 2020 Shoes Everyone Will Be Coveting

It's all about boots and platforms this season.

Aside from a killer coat and new knits, a backbone of fall fashion has always been the boot. True to form, for Fall 2020, boots ruled the roost. We saw an influx of all-purpose boots, both rubber-soled and lace-ups. The classic stacked heel took on new life with the simple addition of chain detailing. And who could forget the thigh-high, kinky boots that walked shows like Alexander McQueen and Victoria Beckham in a mix of colors and PVC?

Designers also breathed new life into shoes, giving us pairs that are just plain fun. We saw the return of the platform, tall and embellished in all their disco glory. Its younger sister, the flatform, also made an appearance, and is ideal for the cool girl who wants to opt out of the towering height. No matter your personal style, there’s a shoe this season that's right for you. Buy now, thank us later.
