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.

Best Materials and Colors

With the right materials and colors, you can enjoy your shoes throughout the Fall season.

  • Breathable fabric: As the temperatures cool but still offer plenty of warmth, materials that offer a flexible level of ventilation, like mesh or canvas, can help feet stay comfortable in a variety of temperatures.
  • Leather uppers: Leather is a natural insulator that keeps you warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s warm—perfect for fall.
  • Canvas material: Easy to clean, versatile, durable yet lightweight, canvas is a easy option as weather transitions from summer to fall.
  • Water-resistant spray: As rain and snow start to fall, spritz your shoes with a layer of water-resistant spray like KURU Shield to keep your footwear in top shape.
  • Variety of colors: Fall gives you a bit-of-warm, bit-of-cool that lends itself to a variety of color options from clean whites and sophisticated brown or black.

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."

-- Pati O

"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."

Answers to the most frequently asked questions are just a click away.

What shoes do you wear in the fall?


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.

What shoes are in this season?


Ankle boots, Chino boots and Chelsea boots are consistently popular footwear for cooler fall and winter months. KURU offers a line up of stylish boots so you can get the warmth and support you need all season.

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 I 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.
