The Mother’s Top 3 Shoe Styles for Fall

The Fall and Winter runways are commonly known for 2 things:  Fabulous fashion that skimps on practicality.  As fashionista moms, it’s often painful see our favorite stylists gushing over the benevolence of towering platforms and super-steep, spiky stiletto boots.  This season, leave the tottering to the toddlers and jump into this new and fabulous footwear.  The looks below are ideal for hours of activity without sacrificing style (or even heels!)

Flat Life

It’s a given that this style should be the most comfy of all.. right?  Cheaper synthetic styles or a too-pointy toe actually decreases the wearability of flat shoes, resulting in bunions and unneeded shock to the sole.

Below: Choose a flexible pair of ballet flats in non-leather or a preciously crafted slimline slipper. Pink studded, synthetic leather ballet flat at Express, $39.90; French-made Repetto Pony Ballerina flat in Zebra, $400 at Opening Ceremony.

Funky, Chunky Flair

Regardless of heel height, leveled-out platform soles create a more stable balance for shoes.  Ease up on the arch and keep comfort going all day with contemporary looks at Shopbop:  Wrap-detailed Karla suede pumps by Charlotte Ronson, $195; Julianne leopard-print wedges by Tory Burch, $325.

Bountiful Boots A shoeaholic’s paradise: Showstopping designer details and exotic embossing in a variety of price ranges.  Pick your color (and height) with fold-down faux shearling lined Orlando Over-Knee Suede boot by Sam Edelman, $199 at Bloomingdales; Front Fold Booties in patent and nylon, $54.99 by Isabel Toledo for Payless.
