Best Fall Shoe. And the Emmi Award goes to... / by Joe Baz

A combination of comfort, style, and versatility makes the Kennard Plain-Toe Gore Boot from Johnston & Murphy a winner. They have a contoured inner foam cushion which some of my clients swear is the Escalade of the footwear experience. The boot's shape is classic contemporary so they're incredibly versatile, and the waxed suede adds distinction and rugged appeal. You could wear these with jeans, khakis, a military inspired pant, or a light grey or navy slack. If you haven't adapted your ninja like reflexes to slide on half boots with ease, a shoe horn will do the trick. These boots are available at Johnston & Murphy stores and online at http://www.johnstonmurphy.com/product.aspx?c=682&pid=59943&VID=59954. Price $150.
