The Best Jeans to Wear with Fall Footwear

One of the best parts about transitioning to your fall wardrobe? The shoes! Retire your flip flops and sandals to the back of the closet until next spring, and swap them out for cooler-weather classics like boots and sneakers to wear with your fave American Eagle jeans.

Wondering which jeans go best with your new fall footwear? No worries. We’ve got you covered with this jean + shoe guide.



For Guys: What to Wear with Slim, Skinny & Stacked Jeans

Slim Jeans + Chunky Sneakers

Lean and clean but not quite skinny, slim jeans are juuuuust right for chunkier shoes that balance them out, like sneaker boots or sporty sneakers with a bigger, chunky outsole.

Skinny Jeans + Sleek Sneakers

Our best-selling skinny jeans – not tight, just right! – serve up serious style with minimally styled sneakers featuring a sleeker profile. Choose ripped skinny jeans for an elevated rugged look, or go for a medium wash for that iconic blue jeans style.

Stacked Skinny Jeans + Bright Sneakers

Stacked skinny jeans use a trend-forward stacked effect at the ankle to draw attention to your shoes, a.k.a. they’re amazing at showing off sneakers made to pop. Match your stacked jeans with brightly colored shoes to stand out from the crowd.

For Girls: What to Wear with Ripped, High-Waisted & Curvy Jeans

 Ripped Jeans + Your Fave Boots

Ripped jeans like jeggings and Tomgirl jeans might feel like summer styles – but wear them with black booties or plaid sneakers and they’re ready for falling leaves, sweater weather, and cooler temps. Emphasize your shoes by cuffing your jeans or choosing a cropped length.

High-Waisted Jeans + Statement Heels

High-waisted jeggings and highest waist flare jeans give you that comfy high-rise fit you love, and serve up major style with of-the-moment snakeskin heels. Try them with other patterned shoes in prints like leopard, houndstooth, and plaid to make a statement all season long.

Curvy Jeans + Fall-Forward Footwear

Still searching for jeans to wear with your fall shoes? Give Curvy jeans a try! Designed with more room through the hips and thighs, these jeans eliminate waistband gapping and hug all your curves. Try Curvy jeans with a split hem to draw focus down to your classic Chelsea booties. These boots are made for walking, and the jeans are made for making your butt look (and feel) incredible.
