    1. A pair of booties with a side cut-out detail that not only adds an interesting element, but also gives your ankles a chance to breathe if you jumped the gun a bit and it's still 80 degrees outside.


    Promising review: "I bought these booties two weeks ago, and I'm very happy with my purchase. They look great dressed up or down and are very comfortable and stylish. I love the color and have gotten so many comments on how cute they are." —Bluefish

    Get them from DSW for $39.99 (available in sizes 6-10 and in four colors).

    2. A pair of Chelsea Boots that are basically a closet staple. They're worth the investment because they'll pair well with basically everything you have in your closet.

    Thursday Boot Company

    Promising review: "After a lot of worry about getting the right fit, I took the advice given by the reviewers and the company and ordered a half size larger. They fit great! The leather is beautiful. They smell really good. They look very suave and debonair. I’m sitting on the sofa watching TV because I don’t want to take them off. I debated a long time and worried a lot about buying these boots because of some of the negative reviews, but I’m glad I went with the majority of reviews. They were not too narrow and fit comfortably. They also were not too long. They are the look that I was going for. A dressier look than my normal work boots that I bum around in. I’m very happy with these classy boots!!" —CMaxDavis

    Get them from Amazon for $160 (available in sizes 5-11 and in black, brown, and olive suede).

    3. A pair of block-heel boots you'll want to wear on your next night out with friends 'cause they'll give you a little lift without making your feet feel like they're going to fall off by the end of the night.

    Promising review: "I love these booties!! I get so many compliments on them!! They look expensive but are a great price. I even bought them in another color!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in five colors).

    4. One with a stacked heel comfy enough to wear apple picking – it's not only about picking apples, you also have to look cute doing it.

    Sorel / Via

    My coworker Heather has these and loves them. They're super cute and great for fall all the way through spring.

    Get them from Amazon for $155.15+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in four colors) or from Sorel for $160 (available in sizes 5-12 and in four colors).

    5. An ankle bootie with a fun ruffle detail to take your jeans-and-a-tee look up a notch.

    Promising review: "These took a while to ship, but they were so worth the wait! They are SO cute!! I love them! I do wish I would’ve sized down. I’m normally a 7.5, and these didn’t come in half sizes, so I ordered an 8. They are too big, even with socks. I added a heel pad, and it helps." —Jessica

    Get them from Amazon for $23.98+ (available in sizes 5-12 whole sizes and in 18 colors and styles).

    6. These booties to help you buckle down and get some work done. (And by work, I mean looking oh-so-cute in these beauties.)


    Promising review: "These are adorable and fit exactly as expected. They look so much more expensive than the price tag. It was an awesome purchase!!" —Leah Joy

    Get them from Amazon for $24.42+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in five colors).

    7. An ankle boot in a snake print I'm pretty sure I'm obsessed with and will be dreaming about from now until the end of time. Yeah, they're that good.


    Get them from Able for $188 (available in sizes 6-10 and in four colors).

    8. A hiking boot you don't *actually* have to wear hiking. You can also just wear them out and about with jeans, a sweater, and a jean jacket. / Via Steve Madden

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these boots! I get compliments from everyone when I wear them. They are comfortable. I walked 9 miles wearing these with no pain. I just bought my Mom a pair for her birthday." —Sherry Hines

    Get them from Amazon for $64.32+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in four colors).

    9. An ankle boot with concealed orthotic support because everyone deserves cute *and* comfortable shoes, and that's a fact.


    Promising review: "I am so, so, SO happy these fit. I've had my eye on these for several months now and snapped them up when the price was right. Vionic is a very hit-or-miss brand, unfortunately, so I've learned to temper my expectations. However, this pair of booties fit perfectly. True-to-size in 9.5. The arch support is in the right place, the heels don't slip, the toe box isn't too tight or short...I feel like Cinderella, haha. But seriously. I have plantar fasciitis, and it is SO HARD to find cute, supportive shoes. I'm very happy with this purchase." —littleredjennTop

    Get them from Amazon for $58.82+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in black and brown).

    10. A Chelsea boot you can wear straight out of the box and not worry about any "breaking in" period because nobody has time for that.


    Get them from Amazon for $72+ (available in sizes 5-10 and in seven colors) or Zappos for $159.95 (available in sizes 5-10 and in brown and black).

    11. A chunky over-the-knee lace up to give you a ~leg~ up on your fall style., Amazon

    Promising review: "These heels are a STATEMENT PIECE, y'all. I wore these for an entire day while walking around Boston in the rain and they held up wonderfully. My knees started to ache by the end of the day because I had been heel striking (aka walking like I was fly) but my feet weren't sore, which surprised me. The laces are functional, so the calf width is totally adjustable. I sized up and I think there's enough wiggle room for some real socks for when it's cold. I'm 5'8'' and they came just above my knees, which is amazing as a tall girl! Buy these!!!" —Arielle Cason

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–10 and in 11 colors).

    12. Some low-wedges to give your look a little lift no matter what you decide to wear.

    Promising review: "These are a surprisingly great alternative to more expensive brands in the same style. They are very comfortable, which is saying a lot because I often have terrible foot and ankle pain. I highly recommend these wedges." —M. K. Miller

    Get them from Amazon for $22.85+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 15 colors).

    13. A color-block boot I actually said, "ModCloth, how dare you?!?" to the moment I saw them – these are a NEED not a want.


    Just imagine walking down the street on a crisp fall morning wearing these and a sweater while sipping a hot coffee. Doesn't that sounds like paradise? Because it does to me.

    Get them from ModCloth for $159 (available in sizes 6-11).

    14. Or a pair of western ankle booties that come in so many different colors I may or may not already have a couple pairs in my cart. 😬

    Promising review: "These booties are super cute! They are comfortable to walk in and look expensive, but they aren't. I am super picky about shoes, and I think they are my new favorite pair. I wear a size 8.5-9 depending on the brand. I got 8.5, and they fit just right." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon $15.86+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 35 colors).

    15. A splurge-worthy pair of Jeffrey Campbells you'll be wearing for years because as soon as you put these on, you'll probably never want to take them off.,

    Promising review: “Absolutely gorgeous shoes. My husband gifted these to me. My first Jeffrey Campbells and certainly not my last. I am so in love. These are so perfect, comfortable, and excellent quality. I love the casual but really stylish look of these; I feel like they are classics I can wear for years but still show uniqueness with a bit of an edge.” —Let:it:be

    Get them from Amazon for $158+ (available in sizes 6-11 and five colors).

    16. A block heel you can wear with jeans, a skirt, or even a dress because that's how versatile it is.

    Free People

    Promising review: "These boots are made of a beautiful soft leather and are unbelievably comfortable. As a lot of the reviews have indicated, they do fit quite snug around the calves, but this is perfect for me. The chunky heal looks great with jeans. I think these boots are a great investment—buy them!" —Sapphire_the_Cat

    Get them from Free People for $198 (available in European sizes 36-41 and in 11 colors).

    17. Heeled booties you'll ~glitterly~ be obsessed with and so will everyone you see because you really *can't* go wrong with glitter shoes.

    Promising review: “They are even cuter in person! I got the gray boots and will be ordering the black ones next. The sparkles are not over the top but add some extra style. I recommend you put another insole in the boots ($9 on Amazon) if you are planning on walking a lot, but overall they're great boots.” —Hazel Lou

    Get them from Amazon for $30.75+ (available in sizes 5.5-12 and grey, taupe, and black).

    18. An over-the-knee pullon Ariana Grande would be proud of you for wearing even if you also wear them with actual pants and a top and not just an oversized sweatshirt. To each their own!,

    Promising review: "Omg, I'm in love. First, these are so comfortable. Not stiff, they're soft on the feet's soles. I have other over the knee boots, but these make you look sexier. The height is perfect. I've been wanting some mid thigh." —nori619

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available sizes 5.5–11 and in seven colors).

    19. A cut-out bootie so chic it'll def make the ~cut~ and show up in a few posts on your Instagram.


    Get it from Target for $37.99 (available in sizes 5-12 and in black, brown, and taupe).

    20. A pair of fringe booties made with 100% vegan fabric, so you can look good and feel great about your purchase.

    Promising review: "These are my most favorite pair of boots I own! I love the ankle height, the fringe, and the color! As a teacher, I'm constantly trying to find cute, fashionable shoes that are comfortable since I'm on my feet all day. These do the trick! I am buying them in a second color because I love them so much and have gotten so many compliments on them!" —Brittani H

    Get them from Amazon for $32+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in nine colors).

    21. A slip-on chunky heel you won't have to worry about wearing in the rain because these are designed to prevent you from slipping.,

    Promising review: "Soooo cute. I recently moved to NYC and was looking for boots that are comfy and cute. I wear these ALL the time--they're warm, waterproof (my feet have stayed DRY in the rain), and have good traction (I haven't slipped at all). I've had them for about 3 weeks, and they haven't let me down. The heel makes you look a little taller, and they're cute enough to wear to church. I've gotten so many compliments about them! However, in the end they are heeled boots—after a couple hours of exploring, your feet may start to hurt." —Dani Fay

    Get them from Amazon for $23.26+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in black and brown).

    22. A pair of chukkas that are basically a cross between a fancy sneaker and a boot, so they're something different to add to your wardrobe.


    Get them from Hushpuppies for $109.95 (available in sizes 5-12 and in seven colors).

    23. A pair of platform boots to help start every day you wear them on the ~right foot~.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE these booties!!!!! They are so nice and fit perfect!!! They are a lot nicer than I expected for the price I paid! If you are contemplating getting them, don't!! Just buy them because you will love them too!! I have smaller ankles and these are great because I can actually tie them tighter or looser depending on what I'm wearing with them." —Alexis

    Get them from Amazon for $9.51+ (available in sizes 5-10 and in 12 colors).

    24. Some crisscross chunky-heeled booties you can wear in the warmer months as well as the cooler ones because boots season is 12 months long! (Don't fight me on that.), Amazon

    Promising review: "I was so surprised at the quality of this shoe for the price! I love everything about this bootie! While I wear a size 9, these were a tad big, but not enough to need to exchange them. Now I want a pair in every color!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-9 and in seven colors).

    25. A sneaker boot perfect to wear on your next vacation because you'll be able to comfortably walk no matter how many times you get lost.

    Olukai / Via

    Get them from Nordstrom for $149.95 (available in sizes 5-11 and in brown, black, and taupe).

    26. A vegan pair that'll ~go-go~ with so many different outfits you won't know what you did without them.

    Promising review: “White boots have been a trend and I wanted to get myself a pair. I decided to buy these based on the positive reviews. I was so happy when they came in the mail. They’re great and fit true to size! I like how the heel is there without being so high you will trip on your feet. I’ve been wearing the boots nonstop! I ordered another pair in black and would totally get every color they have. For the price, you won’t be disappointed.” —Tiffany

    Get them from Amazon for $25+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and six colors)

    27. A studded pair you'll probably take a picture of every time you wear them because they'll make you feel approximately 10 times cooler than you normally do. (And that's already pretty cool.)

    Promising review: “I've had these boots for two weeks now and I absolutely love them. They look great and I can walk comfortably (zero blisters after all day of walking). Get compliments all the time — the boots match with everything. Def going to order other colors.” —Jen Yu Wang

    Get them from Amazon for $59.98+ (available in sizes 4-11 and 10 colors).

    28. Block heel booties perfect to dress up the outfit you're planning to wear to Friendsgiving, even though it's def too early to start planning you outfit for Friendsgiving, but that's okay.

    Nordstrom Rack

    Get them from Nordstrom Rack for $69.97 (available in sizes 5-11 and in black and brown).

    29. A pair of Sorel wedge zip boots that are so incredibly comfortable that you'll (probably) never want to take them off. You'll be able to walk 500 miles in these and then 500 more.


    Get them from Sorel for $200 (available in sizes 5-12 and in brown, black, and grey).

    30. An embroidered pair so beautiful you'll get heart eyes every time you see them in your closet and then you can plan an outfit around them. 😍

    Promising review: "These are my absolute new favorite boots.

The first time I wore them, I was showered with compliments because they're just that unique! I'm SO happy with these boots." —kaley

    Get them from Amazon for $37.12+ (available in sizes 6-10).

    31. And a pair of blue suede boots because I can't be the only person who's wanted a pair for as long as I can remember???? I think we all would rock the hell out of these babies.


    Get them from ABLE for $158 (available in sizes 6-10).

    Me thinking about getting all these boots and wearing them all fall long:
