Off the Rack: Fall Boot Preview at Target, Surprize by Stride Rite, Stevies by Steve Madden and More (See 25+ In-Store Photos)

Pretty earrings at Target
My Tar-jay started stocking the shelves with new boots for fall amidst piles of disorganized sandals and other summer shoes, which, once so covetable, are now littering the aisles on clearance. The new ankle boots boast slight variations from last season that make them just different enough to make customers (like myself) shout (in my head) "OMG I need these!" Nevermind that I already own a dozen or so pairs of nearly identical styles. My favorites so far are the Merona Sawyer (shown above, $34.99) and Mossimo Sydney leopard sneakers ($29.99).

New-at-Target brands include Surprize by Stride-Rite which are super cute but surprizingly expensive for synthetic materials. When you become a parent you discover every child wears Stride-Rite. I've purchased a couple pairs of Stride-Rite on sale on sites like Rue La La (there are also Stride Rite outlets) and paid less for genuine leather/suede than this new Surprize brand, so buyer beware.

And there's Stevies by Steve Madden for girls. The styles are cute and trendy albeit a bit unoriginal.

Right now when you spend $25 you can save $5 on either Surprize or Stevies styles online with code SHOES.

On this trip, I picked up this pair of Merona Alma sandals in black on clearance for $8.48 and I've been wearing them a lot - they're really comfortable and can be worn with casual outfits or dresses. I'd like to get more colors but they're still full price online.

Have you seen any new shoe styles at Target you can't live without? I love hearing what everyone's excited to see for fall, so let me know in the comments!

I love the all the new shoe arrivals, I'm seeing a few here that I didn't see at my stores and those necklaces are really cute too! Excited for fall :-)

I have to tell you that I love these posts. It's just as good as browsing Target in person myself!

I think you're spot on regarding the state of style "sameness" from last season, and I feel like I already own tw0 pairs of the 'new styles...that said, I wore my pair of Sawyers 1.0 into the ground last season, and will be buying this new version on my next trip :-)
Also, Thanks for posting the jewelry pics--I don't ususally shop in that section unless i have an event to go to, but I', loving many of those earrings!

I'm the same way, I shop jewelry after I have a look picked out and usually only for "special" occasions! They I can justify new statement earrings or a big sparkly necklace ;-)

Yes my boots from last season are pretty beat up, too, especially the faux suede styles. I'll be going back for replacements, no doubt.

Ok, is it weird that I'm oddly drawn to the black hi-tops???

I saw the taupe Jan boots on a business trip to Colorado (ran into Tarjay for an essential I'd forgotten to bring) and had to have them! I'm on the Gulf Coast so won't get to wear them till December if even that but will be watching to see what others say about comfort, coordinating outfits, etc.!
