Homecoming Shoes: Staff Favorites

Homecoming shoes are the finishing touch to a gorgeous dress and a night full of unforgettable memories. They can add just the right amount of sparkle, a height enhancement or a confidence boost. We have chosen our three favorite homecoming shoe picks! We particularly love how the Dyeables Myra sandal has a simple, yet elegant design paired with a supportive 1 inch wedge heel.  What’s not to love about the Badgley Mishcka Kassidy II pumps? They accentuate a feminine silhouette while maintaining a classically chic style. The David Tutera Sandy offers subtle rhinestone embellishment and has a genuine blue Swarovski Crystal on the smooth leather outsole. Shop shoes.com for all special occasion shoes.

We’ve created a sweet and stylish homecoming inspiration board. The Dyeables Myra sandals are perfectly paired with a knee-length pink formal gown. Add some glitter and light pink nail polish for some extra pizzazz. We think a soft up-do and sparkly tiara would complete this chic formal ensemble.

Guys’ Trends: Driving Mocs & Chukkas

Here at shoes.com, we like to stay abreast of the latest trends and keep you up to date on what’s going on in the world of shoes. As summer transitions to fall, the trends change as well, with summer’s light styles moving toward heavier shoes and darker colors. What do we think is going to be big going from summer to fall? For late summer and early fall, driving mocs are going to be a hit for gentlemen on the weekends, and as the weather gets a little bit cooler, chukka boots are going to give fashionable fall looks.

Driving moccasins (driving mocs) are a contemporary update on the traditional Native American moccasin, providing a stylish and slightly different alternative to the casual loafer or slip on. Most driving mocs have a rubber pad sole which increases the durability of the shoe while still maintaining the light comfort of a traditional moccasin. Here are some of our favorites for early fall.

The Calvin Klein Wallace driving moc features a suede upper and logo hardware detail at the vamp, with very pronounced top stitching detail for a unique look. This comfortable shoe is a slip-on appropriate for many an occasion, the definition of weekend style and comfort.

Lacoste has long been a name in preppy style, and the Concours 10 moccasin fits right in with that legacy. With a leather upper, leather overlay with penny slot detail, and the classic gator logo hardware, you’ll be able to complete your country club look with style.

The versatile Minnetonka Moccasin original cowhide driving moc goes with anything. Available in either a suede or leather upper, it features a comfortable lightly padded collar and lacing detail that separates it from other driving mocs.

Chukka boots are sometimes referred to as desert boots or turf boots or simply chukkas. Ankle-length boots with two or three pairs of eyelets for lacing, they were originally popular as casual wear in the 1940s and 1950s, and are back in a big way for this fall.

Timberland is always a great brand for casual boots, and with chukkas it’s no different. The Timberland Brook Park chukka features a leather upper, two eyelet lace up front and TPR welted construction for durability. It’ll last a long time and look good doing it.

A true classic in the field is the Red Wing chukka boot, with a three eyelet lace up leather upper and distressed look. It also features contrasting stitching for a different but still classic chukka look.

When it comes to boots, you can’t go wrong with Frye. The James chukka boot features a two eyelet lace up front and leather upper, as well as a premium smooth leather lining and leather outsole for true quality, looks and comfort.

Men’s Fashion Sneakers for Fall

There are many ways for men to go casual when it comes to footwear, but perhaps the easiest surefire way to cement a casual look is with a fashionable sneaker. Sneakers are cool and comfortable, go well with jeans and are perfect for the weekend. If you’re looking for what fashion sneakers are going to be in for this fall, you’ve come to the right place, as we have plenty of recommendations.

One of the styles we’re looking forward to this fall is the retro jogger. Modeled off of classic athletic sneakers and running shoes from the past, retro joggers give a classic look as well as the comfort you want from a weekend shoe.

Our first retro jogger favorite is the New Balance 574. It offers a truly classic look with a suede and mesh upper, and comes in a number of color combinations. In addition to looks, it also provides plenty of comfort with an ENCAP® EVA midsole that lends support and stability. The 574 is made in the USA, so you can support US workers by wearing this shoe.

Our other standout in the retro jogger pack is the Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 slip-on sneaker. Lace free styling sets this one apart from other retro joggers, and its canvas upper and rubber toe bumper give the truly timeless look and feel.

While we’re on the subject of slip-ons, slip-on sneakers are the other hot fall trend for fashion sneakers. Our first favorite among the many great slip-on sneakers out there is the Vans Classic, a skate shoe with a Southern California look. It’s got the signature waffle pattern outsole you’re used to with Vans, as well as elastic goring for easy on-off and comfort.
