Not to generalize, but I find that once we hit this time of year, the fashion set has only one thing on their minds: fall fashion. Can you blame us, though? There’s something magical about the transition into fall—you’re suddenly motivated to let go of a few things, embrace new trends, and can finally pull out styles you don’t get to wear in the sweltering heat. But possibly the most exciting thing about this time of year is the prospect of wearing suede shoes again.
Anyone living in climates that become extremely hot or cold knows that wearing suede shoes requires you to be mindful of the weather (so you don’t damage the fabric). And while this style may require special care, it’s well worth it in our eyes because suede shoes are a fall staple. No matter what shoe styles are trending, suede always manages to bubble back up on the runway (for a good reason). This fabric lends itself well to transitional weather because of its versatility—both in style variety and how you can style it. Basically, there’s no safe style to invest in for fall than a pair of suede shoes.
But if you’re not sold on the staying power of this style yet, or have yet to find the perfect pair, keep reading. Ahead, we’ve identified the 3 styles that are ideal for transitional weather and shopped out the 33 best suede shoes online right now.
