Who tops our list when it comes to stylish fall footwear? It’s up for debate, but it might be none other than Nisolo, the ethically and sustainably made footwear brand that’s on a mission to shake up the fashion industry — one pair of handsomely crafted shoes at a time. Although they also make women’s shoes, our focus is on the men’s offering — it’s packed full of stylish footwear to own this season, to say the least. The brand tracks its social impact, ensuring workers receive fair wages and fair treatment, among other key metrics. And at the same time, Nisolo sources its footwear with sustainability and an eco-conscious mindset at the forefront. All of this is to say: They also excel at making supremely stylish footwear. Check out our favorites from the line below.
Nisolo Lockwood Trench Boot, $268
Remarkably comfortable and made from supple-yet-durable leather, the Lockwood Trench Boot is the real deal. In an edgy-yet-accessible Steel color, these leather-laced boots are fit for a casual day at the office this fall, followed by an evening rock concert — they’ll surely look even better with a few stories to tell. Oh, and the price? Excellent.
Nisolo Diego Low-Top Sneaker in Bone, $148
Plenty of sneakers these days go the minimalist route — perhaps too many. It’s nice to see a sneaker with a bit of character, made from unique, beautiful leather that’ll age very well over time. Finish it off with a comfortable Vibram sole and a simple silhouette, and you’ve got a pair of kicks to team up with a chambray shirt and dark denim — definitely a winner when it comes to stylish fall footwear.
Nisolo Luca Chukka Boot, $198
Between a great pair of trench boots and a sleek pair of sneakers, what more do you need? Some Nisolo chukka boots wouldn’t go amiss — the Luca Chukka Boot fits the bill quite nicely. Sharp enough to team with tweed trousers and a navy blazer this fall, the Luca Chukka Boots’ handsome shade of Brandy leather also goes well with a rugged field jacket and faded denim. Can you say stylish fall footwear? Indeed.
Nisolo Chavito Chukka Boot in Oak, $158
With striking construction and a silhouette that stands out from other chukka boots in the best way possible, the Chavito is the answer to the boot you’ve been on the hunt for in advance of fall. The durable rubber outsole makes these boots fit for all kinds of terrain — although we think they might look best teamed with gray denim and a belted shawl cardigan on the first chilly day of fall.
Nisolo Calano Oxford in Oak, $188
If you like your dress shoes less stuffy and imbued with more character, the Calano Oxford is the perfect pair to add to your fall footwear rotation. Made in the same handsome leather as the Chavito Chukka Boot, the rich texture adds visual interest to any outfit — particularly broken-in denim and a herringbone blazer when the temperatures drop.
