There are few things more quintessentially fall than a pair of gorgeous boots. From work to weekend, these staples are an easy go-to shoe that can compliment just about anything in our closets. (Don’t you just love that?) To help you “reboot” for the season, we’ve put together an overview of key styles and features you’ll be seeing in our stores. Below, tune in to see Jocelyn, a fit specialist at our Roseville store, walk you through even more Schuler Shoe’s fall 2016 boot trends.
Low Rider : For fall 2016, go low. We’ll continue to see the lower cut we saw last year which includes boots that hit mid-calf and booties that hit at the ankle. The trend continues all the way down to the heel with flat to low heels.
The Trailblazer : Take a bit of adventure with you wherever you go. Another boot trend we’ll see in our stores this fall is hiker boots with an urban edge. Often furnished with a heavy, treaded sole and thick laces, this style will go beyond the trail to be worn as an everyday shoe. What a great way to add some practical traction into your wardrobe when the winter sludge sets in.
Command Attention : Functional and tough with a menswear twist, the military-inspired style can kick a casual look into high gear. From sleek combat lace-ups to the slouchy grunge style of the Earth Jericho, add some edge to your wardrobe with this timeless trend.
A New Angle : A curved or angled topline is a design feature that adds visual interest. From graceful to edgy to Western, it’s a subtle detail that seriously plays up the drama.
Buckle Up : This season, you’ll also see a lot of buckle detailing that gives a military-inspired, western, or moto twist. And when it comes to straps, the more the merrier. You’ll also see many styles that wraparound for 360° of très chic.
Timeless Texture : Waxy full-grain leather and oiled nubuck are burnished materials that give your boots rich, unique, textured color. You’ll love how the patina lends a well-loved, storied look. And the best part? That aura of history gets better with wear.
