As much as you’d like to remain in your go-to APLs or Gigi Hadid–approved Reeboks for seasonal practicality, by mid fall, you have to start thinking beyond mesh and perforated materials when it comes to your kicks. Although it might seem like a sartorial conundrum (what exactly are you supposed to wear with your leggings if not chic sneaks?) there are actually a ton of boot styles that feel like they were created with your favorite pair of Lululemon leggings in mind.
Just like you transition your summer mesh leggings and crop tops for warmer activewear and sweaters, your shoe game need some transitional pieces too. And as someone who literally just spent hours sifting through boot options on the internet, you can trust me in saying this year’s crop is exceptional. (Glitter and bedazzled features are everywhere.) Pick a classic that pairs with everything or something more statement-making that is the whole outfit—the choice is your call.
