What better way to get back in the groove being in person at the office or in class after WFH for over a year than with a fresh pair of shoes. Now that most jobs and schools are preparing for 100% in-person or a hybrid schedule for the fall, you’re going to need a fresh pair of shoes to make you feel good as you step back into the chaos.
If you’re a shoe fanatic like I am, there is nothing quite like the feeling of splurging on a pair of shoes that you’ve been eyeing on for a while in your shopping cart. Well, now is the moment to put your slip-ons and cozy slides away back in the closet (leave them for WFH) because it’s time for some fall shoe shopping. In this roundup, there is a shoe for every kind of person, whether you’re into cowboy boots, a classic loafer, or a fresh pair of Jordan 1s for the fall, I’ve got you covered.
Nike Jordan 1 Low - Fragment Design X Travis Scott X Air Jordan 1 Low $1,805
To round up this list is the Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low OG SP sneakers. Just newly released, the Air Jordan 1 Low Fragment Design x Travis Scott nods to the original 2016 Air Jordan 1 Fragment with its simple color blocking. It features a smooth white leather upper with black and royal blue leather overlays. From there, a signature reversed Swoosh and yellowed soles add a Cactus Jack flair to the classic silhouette. If you’re like me, you’ll love to rock this fresh pair of sneakers with a tailored suit.
