How to Up Your Shoe Game This Fall

Here’s what’s on SI Swimsuit’s pre-order list.

If Kelsey Merritt’s TikTok shoe try-on doesn't make you want to go shopping, what will? The end of summer may feel bittersweet (or even highly traumatic), but you can always look forward to fall fashion. With Labor Day creeping up, it’s time to start daydreaming about suede, leather and layers.

Boots are a particularly perfect place to start because of their versatility. You can pair them with a mini dress on days when the heat is still kicking and then in excess until spring rolls around. A fresh pair of sneakers with the change in season is another way to revamp your look. And we cannot neglect an early-fall date-night pump. Check out our wishlist and see what we deem pre-order worthy for the coming season:
