Danielle’s 5 Fall Must-Haves


Meet Danielle Kalish! As our senior design director, Danielle’s creativity and fashion expertise is behind every pair of LifeStrides. Her “modern feminine” aesthetic, attention to detail, and passion for comfort (plus incredible sense of style) make her THE go-to for all things shoes.


Wondering what shoes will be popular in the fall? Revamp your fall wardrobe with her five essential styles for the season…


1. Sonoma Loafer

“Gold is my favorite hardware finish, and it really stands out on this chain-inspired ornament. I love to style a classic loafer all season with my favorite denim and a blazer.”

2. Cameo Flat

The ballet is back! I love the feminine, subtle square toe shape and the little lift you get with the heel. This is going to be your go-to shoe.”

3. Reese Knee High Boot

“The refresh on the riding boot you’ve been waiting for! I love the flattering dips at the top and the Western details. Brown is a key color this year, and I love to mix it with everything.”

4. Gio Boot

“The sculpted wedge shape makes this bootie so sophisticated while also being incredibly comfortable! Plus, our new buckle design adds the perfect touch to dress it up or down.”

5. Sunset Pump

“This is my go-to heel. I love the envelope vamp detail and mixed materials, especially in the dover color. I wear this comfortable pump to work and then straight out to meet girlfriends for happy hour.”
