Fall's best footwear doesn't have to be complicated, because candidly, that's not what we're about right now. Instead, we're sticking to the trends that have taken over more organically this season — shoes that are practical, functional, and absolutely still fun — only this set of styles doesn't require any laces, zips, or straps to get your feet into.

They're essentially slides, slip-ons, and pull-on boots that make getting dressed easy and looking cool a no-brainer. Some offer the newest takes on the slippers you've loved all summer, others, like the clog, are making a more nostalgic comeback, here to give your look a little of that '00s love. Read on for the breakdown on the season's biggest shoe trends that are a little more laid-back and a little less runway.


Fall 2020 Shoe Trend: Clogs

Clogs, like a lot of our wardrobes from the early '00s, have made a comeback — and why not? Comfortable, functional, and primed to go with everything from easy dresses to jeans, consider these the workhorses of your closet that you can still feel pretty cool about wearing.


Fall 2020 Shoe Trend: Slipper-Inspired

Slippers crept into our wardrobes this spring, and now they're a lasting part of our look, making their fall debut with cozy shearling and furry insoles. If fuzzy isn't your thing, look for slipper silhouettes with ballet-inspired details instead. In any case, you'll be getting lots of wear out of these babies.


Fall 2020 Shoe Trend: Mules

Mules have been around for a couple of seasons, but we're not ready to say goodbye just yet. With the ease of a slip-on silhouette, but the sophisticated details that come with these iterations — yes, even heels! — these pairs are endlessly versatile.


Fall 2020 Shoe Trend: Loafers

This season's preferred polished flat is the loafer, making a name for itself with chunkier soles, sometimes luxe suede finishes, and in pops of white, too. Invest in a style you'll wear long past this season.


Fall 2020 Shoe Trend: Chunky Chelsea Boots

Our favorite of fall's boot trends, this take on the Chelsea boot is utilitarian and cut out for anything. That's a shoe we can get behind.
