The New Black!
You probably didn’t even know a Wear Brown Shoes Day existed until now, did you? Yup, it does! This Dec. 4, if for no other reason than just to have fun, trade in those classic black pumps of yours for a pair of cool brown shoes. We’ve rounded up several to get you in the mood. And hey, be sure to tell your friends and co-workers to join in the party too!
Aetrex Essence Riding Boots
These beautiful brown riding boots were definitely made for walking (and trust us, that’s just what they’ll do)! But seriously, you can stomp around town all day or night in these waterproof babies without your feet ever getting sore. That’s because they’re built with a comfortable stretchsweater design and are made to gently conform to your foot without any pressure. What we love about them most, though, is that they’re far more fashionable than your average boot that claims to be comfort focused.

Tsubo Hadley Lace-Up Wedge Boots
Calling all mountaineers! These on trend, chestnut lace-up shoes are the perfect blend of a wedge and boot. They’re great for gals who like to enjoy the great outdoors but want to look incredibly chic and fashion forward while doing so. Featuring a latex foam footbed and rubber outsole, you’ll be raving about these comfy kicks long after Wear Brown Shoes Day is gone.

Cat Footwear Shontelle Bridgetown Boots
'Tis the day to don brown shoes, and if you couldn’t tell already, well, we’re slightly obsessed with boots! These particular ones are part of a collaboration with Barbadian singer Shontelle, and to tell the truth, we’re head over heels for the edgy buckles that give this boot its tough, chic vibe. Pair them with skinny jeans and a pretty blouse for a look that can go from day to night.

Moonisa Qirat Ballet Flats
Add a touch of glam to your work wardrobe and ditch the heels. These crystal embellished leather ballet flats are gorgeous enough to turn even your boss’s head, and rest assured, that’s no easy feat. We’re digging the shiny gold metal cap toe as well, which is all the rage this season.

Old Gringo Adela Boots
The modern ankle bootie meets the Wild Wild West in the form of these adorable, genuine leather cowgirl-esque boots by Old Gringo. With a little fringe hanging down at the side, they’re the perfect investment for Wear Brown Shoes Day (especially for Southern gals!) if you ask us.

Obey X Generic Surplus Dury Shoe
Unleash your inner animal and take a walk on the wild side this Dec. 4. We’ve got a major crush on these brown suede, leopard print oxford shoes, and we’re pretty sure that once you peep them, so will you. Not only are they totally affordable, they’re also ridiculously cozy. Rock them with red cigarette jeans and a denim button-down to be the coolest kid on the block (or you know, at work).
