It’s one of the most delightful times of year. Trees changing colors, sweater-weather, warm beverages, and pumpkin everything. It’s also a shining time for footwear! It’s the not-to-warm, not-to-cool season. Fall is the perfect time for cute fall shoes like Chelsea boots, boat shoes, and leather sneakers.

Whether you want leather uppers or breathable mesh, classy or casual fall shoes, KURU footwear offers a versatile lineup of comfortable fall shoes for almost any occasion—all with our superior arch support and cushion built into every pair.

What are Fall Shoes?

Fall shoes are versatile footwear options that can work just as well in warm weather as they can in rainy or cold conditions.

From fall boots to fall slip-on shoes to fall flat shoes, there’s a wide variety of footwear that can fit for this season. Footwear with rubber outsoles, water-resistant or easy-to-wipe uppers, and water-repellent spray can help you get through the season with comfortable, happy feet.

We’ll unpack how you can style your fall footwear, what options might work best for each activity and how to choose the best option for you.

As always, every pair of KURU shoes comes equipped with our three-part technology: cloud-like EVA foam KURUCLOUD, heel-hugging KURUSOLE, and swoon-worthy ULTIMATE INSOLES.

  • What are the best shoes for fall?

    The best shoes for fall can vary depending on personal style and climate, but some popular options include ankle boots, loafers, oxfords, and closed-toe pumps. These styles are versatile, comfortable, and suitable for the transitional weather of fall.

  • How to choose shoes for fall?

    When choosing shoes for fall, consider factors such as the weather, your personal style, and the activities you’ll be engaging in. Look for shoes made from materials like leather, suede, or weather-resistant fabrics to withstand potential rain or cooler temperatures. Opt for closed-toe or ankle coverage to keep your feet warm, and consider choosing versatile colors that can be easily paired with your fall wardrobe.

  • Can you wear open toe shoes in the fall?

    It depends on where you live! People who live in warmer climates that don’t see much snow can easily get through winter with open-toed shoes. Those in cooler climates will do best to protect their feet with closed-toed shoes, especially when temperatures dip below freezing!

  • Can you wear white shoes in the fall?

    You can depending on the weather! White shoes are more prone to stains from water, dirt, and slush so being mindful to wear white on dryer days will help them stay clean and dry. Opt for darker-colored shoes for wetter conditions that can see more wear and tear.

  • Are there any specific shoe materials suitable for fall weather?

    Certain shoe materials are well-suited for fall weather. Leather and suede are popular choices as they provide warmth and durability. Waterproof or water-resistant materials like treated leather, rubber, or synthetic fabrics can also be beneficial to protect against rain or damp conditions. Consider shoes with fleece or faux fur lining for added insulation during colder fall days.

Three Layers of Support

At KURU, we pride ourselves on our unique approach to shoe design. We believe that shoes should be shaped to fit the natural contours of your feet, which is why we create every pair in three distinct support layers, not just an insole.

Our revolutionary ergonomic design starts with a curved footbed and adds unparalleled triple-layer support that includes shock-absorbing KURUCLOUD, heel-cupping KURUSOLE, and arch-supporting ULTIMATE INSOLES. The result? Shoes that are so comfortable you’ll stop thinking about your feet.

  • How KURU brings relief


    Our patented KURUSOLE plate features a unique design that cups and protects the heel and allows for dynamic flexion with each step. This superior support helps us use our body’s natural cushioning system, the heel’s fat pad, so you can experience all the fall has to offer with less pain.

Great Fall Boot. I am so happy with this boot, it is such a rich color for fall, very comfortable (of course!) and stylish too! I now only wear Kuru, they are the answer to all my feet and ankle troubles…I can not say enough good things about the Luna and how your feet will thank you!”


A Great Shoe. Love this shoe especially in the Fall/Winter months. 100% comfort. This is my third pair! Used one pair as golf shoe. They have just enough grip to work in all weather conditions.”


AMAZING!!!! I followed the break-in advise and day by day I could feel the shoes and my feet communicating to each other because where there was pain one day there was none the next! I love these so much that I’ll be ordering something for Fall!”

Super Comfy! Bought these for my husband. A little trial and error trying to find the right size but we finally found the sweet spot. He’s going to enjoy wearing them in the fall with jeans for casual wear.”

Love these boots!! I hate wearing shoes and I also suffer from plantar fasciitis so I was a bit hesitant. These shoes didn’t disappoint. Wore them on several hikes last fall. No foot pain at all. Plus they are super light weight for a nature girl who likes to be barefoot.”
