Fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons, however, dressing appropriately can be tricky when the weather in your area still feels like summer. Replacing your sandals in favor of socks and boots can be a hard thing to do. That’s why today we are rounding up the best transitional shoe options that you can wear now and into the cooler months. Whether you’re looking for a casual sneaker or versatile boot, we are sharing options that everyone can enjoy. Even better, all of our top picks are priced at under $50.
For men, leather sneakers are a huge-trend right now and I love the Bass Lace-Up Sneaker for $45. These shoes are casual and can easily be worn with jeans or shorts alike. Plus, not only does this sneaker come in a leather version, it also is available in a gray, blue and tan colors too.

Ladies, if you’re looking for one shoe that you can wear now and in the fall, a mule is the perfect choice.
