Autumn is nearly upon us, so it’s time to recharge your shoe wardrobe. If you’re looking for key buys for the season, see the six men’s styles worth investing in below.

Key takeaways: leather boots, refined sneakers and snazzy loafers.

Combat Boots
The lace-up combat boot is back with a vengeance. New interpretations include speed-lacing, varsity stripes or subtly colored leathers.

Printed Slip-Ons
Embrace your inner skater kid with graphic slip-on sneakers. Kitsch is in, with plenty of clashing prints, pop-art motifs and playful patches.

Heeled Boots
Men in heels? You bet. Trusty ankle boots get heightened — literally — with slight block or Cuban heels. Since the heel is a statement of its own, stick with simple black leather or snakeskin for a more rock ‘n’ roll feel.

Novelty Loafers
Snazzy loafers are a trend we saw for spring ’17, but a variety of sprightly styles are available now. Look for crystal or beaded embellishments and dapper plaid prints.

Suede Sneakers
Kiss your white low-top court shoes goodbye. The latest must-have is sneakers in tanned suedes. Paired with the right suit, they’re even appropriate for the office.

Punky Dress Shoes
Dressing up doesn’t have to be boring. The latest crop of laceups and monk straps have a slight punk vibe — think metal studding or creeper soles.
