Despite the current temps outside, fall really is upon us. Kids have returned from camp and are going back to school, and we’re longing for “pumpkin-spice whatever!,” leaf-peeping in the North Georgia mountains and the cooler days ahead. So while we’ve got you dreaming about fall, we’ll share some shoe trends we’re loving for the months ahead.
First up, we have to mention Birkenstock, one of Abbadabba’s original brands. Whether you’re a long-time fan of the comfort the brand provides, or you bought your first pair of Birkenstocks this spring because of their cool-quotient and then fell in love, we’ve got the styles and tricks to carry that love into the fall and winter. You can always go the “socks + sandals” route (here’s some tips on how to do that and not look awkward).
We even carry tons of fun, funky, and cozy socks in our stores to choose from!
Fringe is also popping up everywhere this fall - from purses to shoes and boots. Building off the “boho-chic” looks of this spring, this fall is leaning more “Western-bohemian” with fringe, patchwork, and rich, earthy colors.
We admit it...we're also “boot-aholics” when fall rolls around. The shipments of classic boot styles for men and women from Frye, Red Wing, and Wolverine are already starting to roll out to the stores, as well as super-comfy styles by Blundstone, Dansko and many more.
But for women in 2015, the Ankle Boot reigns supreme. Other carryover trends from the current season are: wedges, menswear-looks for women, and athletic styles* for men and women. (*aka “ath-leisure”...aka #WIWT or “What I Wore Today...and everyday”) Some of our staff’s and customer favorites are Saucony, New Balance and Vans.
Even though summer is coming to a close, that doesn’t mean your coolshoes options have run out. There are lots of styles that will keep your style on point AND stay comfortable. We can’t wait for you to: ”fall” in love with them, too.
