When it comes to buying shoes for myself and/or for my kids, I look for style and comfort. I know there are places online like Vessi Footwear where you can get shoes, however sometimes you just like looking around the aisles of a shoe store. One of my top favorite stores to shop for stylish, yet easy on the budget shoes is Famous Footwear!
If you’re shopping for new athletic shoes for yourself, your husband or your kids, here are some of the latest trends in athletic, casual and dressy shoes for 2015 that you will find at your Famous Footwear store, picked by stylist Stacey Kole for Famous Footwear!
Casual for the All-Star Mom
Fall is the season for busy moms who not only organize carpool duty, volunteer at school events and the lead the cheering section at soccer games, but do all this while answering work emails, creating reports and running to and from meetings with clients. With all that this all-star mom juggles, she needs a good pair of tennis shoes to help her keep going – but long gone are the days of boring sneaks. Add style by sliding into Skechers Synergy Sparkle and Shine sneakers in black with a white sole. This athletic shoe requires no lacing, but offers tons of support. For a little dressier look without sacrificing comfort, go for Sperry Top-Sider Laguna boat shoes in tortoise. The dark brown color with contrasting caramel-hued laces makes them easy to throw on for a day on-the-go.
Functional for Dad
Busy men need shoes that can do double duty, whether crossing off items from the weekend “honey-do” checklist or having some outdoor fun with the family. Rockport’s Storm Surge Chukka brown boots are waterproof with a cushioned insole and provide excellent shock absorption, but their sleek lace-up design allows for wear indoors as well as outdoors. For a casual weekend, dad can rock Skechers Devention Oxford relaxed-fit shoes. While the style is athletic, the contrasting decorative stitching makes them easy to team with pants for virtually any casual outing. Want to channel your inner hipster? Slip into some Converse Chuck Taylor Street Mid Leather sneaks in wheat – the golden-beige hue gets a pop of contrast with a white rubber cap toe. Comfortable, stylish and versatile, these Chucks are a triple treat.
Dressy for Mom
It may be a day at the office or dinner out, but sometimes Mom requires a little more than tennis shoes. Autumn signals boots weather, and with a range of styles in your reach, it’s a cinch to find that perfect pair. When work calls, slip into a pair of Naturalizer Danby Dress Sandals in go-with-everything black. The fashionable open-toe slingback style and medium heel height makes these leather shoes ideal with pants or pencil skirts. If going rugged is more your vibe, rock a pair of Carlos Santana Helena boots. The distressed leather features a zipper and buckles for added edge.
Cool for Boys
Fall signals back to school time and – you guessed it – shoe shopping for those growing feet. Luckily, Skechers has your little guy covered: Boys can hop into Skechers Mega Blade sneakers in cool hues of red, dark blue and superhero silver. The style features Velcro straps for faster playground access. If lace-up is more his thing, Converse’s All-Star Street mid-level leather athletic shoes are one part practical, one part cool with a full lace-up front and metal eyelets.
Cute for Girls
Girls headed back to the books will love Skechers’ Skech Appeal Lil Flyer shoes that boast a pretty mix of gray, pink, lavender and baby blue. If your female fashionista wants to up the adorable ante, nab a pair of Steve Madden Shawney mid-calf boots. Available in brown, these too-cool-for-school boots have a back zipper for those mornings when you’re rushing out the door. And let’s face it – that’s pretty much all of them.
I find Famous Footwear to always have the most incredible selection of shoes for my whole family! I never go home disappointed when I shop for any type of shoes at this store. They carry the most trusted names in footwear and no matter what style and budget preference you have, they got the pair of shoes that you need at reasonable prices!
