With the Grassroots Connect show happening right now in Denver, and Outdoor Retailer’s inaugural November show set to kick off later this week, outdoor brands are pulling out the stops for Fall ’19 with fashion-forward, super-versatile product designed to fit seamlessly into the consumer’s day to day — and the good news is that these crossover-friendly looks couldn’t be more relevant for the footwear channel more broadly.

We've IDed the top four footwear trends to watch, calling out Utilitarian Chic, Athletically Inspired All-Rounders, Vintage Vibes and Insulated Boots as the categories to watch. You can check out more looks and see what some of the top brands have on tap here.
