Best Shoes of Fall 2024

This runway season saw many major houses play it a bit safe and dive back into their archives to call on heritage, legacy, and a sense of the classic. While this made for some collections that felt a bit too polite and unimaginative, it also gave us an interesting look at the evolution and design possibilities of footwear, a category that feels particularly archetypal and connected with subcultural and personal identity.

Loewe balanced the hard edge of a classic motorcycle boot with delicate and intricate beaded embroidery. Isabel Marant and Chloé offered their take on what the boho-chic revival might look like for footwear. Prada extended its intellectual consideration of feminine archetypes to its smart and snappy kitten heels. Ferragamo, Versace, Dries Van Noten, and more embraced the season’s fun textural undercurrent with fluff and fringe.

Here are The Impression’s picks for the best shoes of the Fall 2024 runway season.
