Fall. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, close bosom-friend of the maturing sun, and most importantly your last chance at non-boot footwear for a heavy handful of frozen months to come. Bizarrely, Keats forgot that last part.
Apple picking, pumpkin spice latte-ing and Halloween costume brainstorming aside, your biggest priority this fall should be living your best shoe life. Bask in the limited glory of no socks! Because the second you put on a pair of boots, you've signed your foot soul's options away until spring, my friend. And, really, nothing says "too cool to care" like baring it all until there's a literal blizzard to trek through.
Our chic meets comfortable shoe go-to Schutz has a host of great styles for running around town. But our absolute favorite? The metallic leather Arissa Ballet Flat. With a crackled finish and soft square toe shape, this flat is the Platonic ideal of fun ballet flats. These puppies will serve you morning to night - walk to work, hit up your meetings and, let's be real, spend a lot of time scrolling through Instagram, grab cocktails and dinner and keep the party going!
Can't decide between silver and gold? Mix up those metals and prepare yourself for an onslaught of enthusiastic, jealous exclamations of "Oh my God I love your shoes!"
