Fall Shoe Picks | The Fresh Exchange


I have a thing each season where I love to add one new pair to my shoe collection. Typically, a favorite wore out the last season or the trends adjusted enough that maybe that one I loved the past four years is ready for retirement. I would never tag myself as a shoe person…honestly I don’t own many pairs, but recently I have found myself eyeing them more than ever.

In preparation for fall, I partnered with Nordstrom on Pinterest to share some of my favorite trends for fall including shoes. You can see the board I have been working on in collaboration with them on Pinterest. It got my wheels spinning though about all the awesome shoe trends and what shoes I would consider being my one add to my closet this season. Fall is a great time for boots, heels, and sneakers. I mean, our toes have been free long enough, right? Yeah, that is something that won’t ever be true but anything to pull out my favorite booties and sneakers as the temps cool down.

So, to get us all a little excited for fall, I thought I would first share that board with you, but also gather up some of my favorite shoes for fall I think we all would love to add to our closet. I know it is still super hot and thinking about slipping on a pair of socks sounds horrible, but you will thank me in a few weeks when it’s October and the chilly days are more frequent.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
