J.Crew Fall Shoes: 5 Pair to Crave Now

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Over the years, my shoe crushes have been many and varied. But recently I've been drawn back to one of my original footwear loves -- J.Crew shoes.

With all of the Choos and Loubies in the world, why J.Crew? It's simple... literally. J.Crew's shoes, much like their clothes, are studies in simplicity and classic lines, punctuated by unexpected, yet understated, colors. I love the fact that J.Crew shoes come in 5 different shades of lush brown-grey. I love that J.Crew doesn't make shoes that will be out of style next year, or even 10 years from now. And I love that J.Crew shoes let your clothes shine, without shrinking into the shadows.

The new Fall J.Crew catalog has so many fabulous shoes that I find myself suddenly craving a new pair (or 3 or 4). From ladylike, to casual to rugged, there is a little bit of something for everyone in the new Fall collection. I know you'll agree with me when you see the great shoes they have lined up for Fall. Here are my top 5 picks for J.Crew Fall shoes you'll crave right now:

Available in 5 gorgeous, saturated colors, this simple pump is a wardrobe staple. The classic almond-shaped toe and refined silhouette means this shoe will wear out before it goes out of style.
