Just because you have achy feet that can’t handle heels and most boots doesn’t mean you’re out of luck this fall. Vionic Shoes, a company that specializes in foot-friendly shoes designed to be supportive and keep your feet in natural alignment, has new fall boot styles out that you’d never guess were “comfort” shoes. As a teacher with achy, bunion-y feet, I have to be really careful with any shoes I’m going to be wearing all day. Today I’m featuring some of their cute fall styles that you can wear — even if you actually need to be able to walk, move, and stay on your feet all day long.

Foot-friendly fall boots
1. Daytona Bootie
Check out the perforation detail on these cuties!
2. Nellie Mule
Mules don’t always work for me because they tend to be too narrow in the toe box. These beauties were made to work for everyone.
3. Jolene Bootie
These sleek, classic booties are water-resistant, making them perfect for rainy fall days.
4. Serena Ankle Boot
Here’s another pair of weather resistant boots that can keep you in style and take you where you need to go this fall — indoors or out.
5. Mara Boot
I love a tough, edgy moto type boot that looks just as great with jeans as it does with leggings. And bonus: these, too, are weather-resistant!
6. Oak Lace-Up Bootie
Can you imagine how cozy your tootsies would be in these fuzzy delights at a football or soccer game? Every fan needs these!
7. Jenning Casual Sneaker
Okay, technically these aren’t boots, but they exude that cool-girl casual vibe and they’re perfect for fall. For me, these would be my go-to shoes for casual Fridays at school. And, yeah, the suede is weather-resistant.
Those are my picks for cute, stylish boots that not only look great, but also happen to be GOOD for your poor, tired feet! Vionic shoes are more of an investment than than trendy one-season cheapos, but as you can see, the styling is on-trend now, but also classically chic enough to be in style for years to come.
Shoes and workout wear are pretty much the two categories where I’ll spend more for quality. From years of wearing cheap shoes, I learned my lesson with damaged feet that can’t handle heels anymore: I will gladly pay a little more for shoes that make my feet feel good and stop my bunions from getting worse. I’ll pay more for workoutwear that looks good and does what it’s supposed to (is supportive, isn’t see-through, wicks sweat, and doesn’t fall down): plus, when I paid up for the workout clothes, I feel more obligated to work out a lot and use them. What items do you splurge on?
Dear Jen. I totally agree with you that comfortable shoes are so important when you’re teaching. I don’t know about you, but I walk so much in my classroom…so yeah, comfy first. That said, it doesn’t have to stop there, as you show here. Great inspiration. Thanks for sharing. Love, Lieske
Thanks, Lieske. Like you, I walk a lot in my classroom and all around the building. When I was younger I’d wear really cute shoes that had no support or that cramped my toes, but those days are gone and I’m glad. Gotta protect those feet, but like you said, we can also look for cute, comfy shoes. Thanks for commenting – I’m glad you you liked the post. ~Jenny
