    Get them from Amazon for $35 (available in sizes 5-13 and in two colors).

    3. Lace-up booties capable of making even the *biggest* cynic believe in magic. I don't know what kind of sorcery was involved in the making of the below shoes, but these heels are pretty high — and reviewers swear that they still manage to be shockingly comfortable.

    Promising review: "I hate shoe shopping, both online and in a store. I'm especially leery of buying shoes online, because they never for properly — but these fit PERFECTLY and the quality is AMAZING, especially for the price. I wore these to a crowded concert, and danced my heart out in them. The shoes held up perfectly and didn't even give me blisters. Comfortable, durable, and cute." —Sarah

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5-10 and in 10 colors).

    4. Chunky booties that should really start negotiating for PTO now considering you'll likely wear them every darn day. These babies are destined to become the ~little black dress~ of your shoe collection.

    Promising review: "I have a size 10-10.5 WIDE ASS foot. I rarely find a shoe that fits, let alone a shoe that’s cute that fits and these are honestly one of the best pairs of shoes I own now. I’ve worn them for around five days now, and they’re so comfortable. It doesn’t even feel like there’s a heel on them, and it helps to dress up my outfits a bit. Love!" —Jon

    Get it from Amazon for $21.57+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in two colors).

    5. Dolce Vita booties you'll constantly pair with high-waisted denim. A subtle heel means these have all the comfort of your dirty white kicks, but the gray suede and pointed toe makes these look *way* more polished.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these boots. They're so soft and comfortable, I don't ever want to wear another pair of heeled shoes! I got the taupe and now I want them in the darker brown, too! Who knew Dr. Scholl's even made such cute shoes?!" —Chelsey Ball

    10. Weather-resistant suede boots with pumpkin spice coursing through their veins. Fall festivities, say hello to the only shoe I'll be wearing whilst picking pumpkins and eating my weight in apple cider donuts.

    model wearing the brown lace-up ankle boots

    Promising review: "Apparently my feet think they are special. They are highly sensitive to boot environments and rapidly develop blisters and other issues. They like to be free, but I like boots and have a nice stock of them in my closet. A friend bought a pair of Nisolo’s and I was intrigued. I was afraid they would be a no-go for my feet but I had to try them despite the price. After a trial run around the house for the first day, my feet and I agreed - Nisolo’s are the best thing ever! I bought my pair a half size bigger to account for my thicker Stance socks that has been lifesaving for my feet in other shoes. I cannot express how comfortable my feet are in these shoes. I wear them a lot. Walking the dog, walking in downtown Portland, all the places. I now plan my outfits around these boots and am eyeing other shoes. The suede holds up well in weather (and PNW gets weather). These are pretty much the perfect boot. I look forward to many years of wearing them." —Valerie H.

    Get them from Nisolo for $250 (available in sizes 5-10 and in three colors).

    11. Dr. Martens combat boots capable of making you feel like a total guitar-playing, rule-breaking rock and roll star every time you slip 'em on. Aesthetics aside, these quality shoes genuinely last forever.

    the taupe booties with a silver side zipper

    Promising review: "Finally a wide-fit shoe that will fit my daughter! She has wide but small feet and I have returned more shoes than I’ve kept the last six months. These not only fit, but she says they’re comfortable AND they’re cute and affordable. So happy to find you offer wide-fit shoes." —ELH

    Get them from Target for $34.99 (available in sizes 5-12 and in two colors and wide sizes).

    13. Kamik waterproof boots you can drag through snow, sleet, rain, and mud, but rest assured that your hooves will remain perfectly warm and dry. These are fantastic for the colder months that are (unfortunately) approaching, plus great for hiking rough terrain.,

    Promising review: "I bought these boots to take with me to Iceland and they were exactly what I needed. My feet stayed dry when hiking in the rain and through small streams, my feet never got cold, and I ended up wearing them every day!" —April Buffington

    Get them from Amazon for $59.95+ (available in sizes 6-10.5 and in 11 colors).

    14. Pointed toe block heel booties handcrafted with Italian leather, aka say ~buon giorno~ to the only shoes you'll want to wear this season. White booties = the only pre-requisite needed for becoming a fashion blogger.

    the black shiny ankle boots

    Promising review: "I go to school in Santa Cruz and it rains a lot over here so I thought I should invest in some stylish rain boots. These are perfect because they aren't too clunky and obnoxious but they are able to keep warmth in and rain out. I also love how trendy they are because I don't feel like I'm wearing two traffic cones on my feet." —Tara Mashkory

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 36-41 and in nine colors)

    Promising review: "My goodness, I could seriously wear these shoes all day long! They are fabulous! They don't squish my toes or the sides of my feet, are easy to walk in, and they don't rub my ankles. Plus, the neutral color is great because it matches with everything." —Kacie D.

    20. Leather buckled boots specifically designed with wide to *extra* wide heels and calves in mind. These knee-highs are the perfect everyday boots: they're got a cushioned footbed, won't clash with any outfit, and are currently on sale.

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and two colors).

    the black croc-inspired lace-up boots

    Promising review: "I’ve been looking for these type of boots, but they were all more than what I wanted to pay. These boots are great for the price and they don’t look cheap. I sized up a half size so they would fit perfectly with socks." —Delmar

    25. Knee-high combat boots lined with faux fur to keep your legs and tootsies feeling nice, warm, and toasty — even when the weather outside can best be described as "my face hurts." A personal aside: I won't miss summer humidity, but I'm also not looking forward to freezing my assets off.

    reviewer wearing the gray lace-up knee-high boots

    Promising review: "I was prepared to be about as disappointed by these shoes, but they're actually INCREDIBLY comfortable and seem pretty sturdily made especially considering the price. I walked almost a mile and a half in these today, wearing them as they come (without the medical orthotics I've been prescribed for my messed up arches), and yet these felt really great to walk in. A total stranger also complimented me on them!" —Remy Z.

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in five colors).

    26. Lucky Brand leather booties for ankles that r-e-f-u-s-e to be tamed. These block heel shoes are designed with a memory foam insole and unique cutout in the front, aka no need to find matching socks in order to wear these beauties.,

    Promising review: "I really like Lucky Brand shoes, and this pair is no exception. Reviews recommended sizing down, so I ordered a size 6 from my normal size 6.5. They fit without my heel coming out of the shoe which was of great concern to me. While slightly snug at first (but not uncomfortable), in a short time, they loosened up a bit. I love the print and already had boots in this same print so I knew what to expect. The heel is just right for me at 3 inches." —R. Amburn

    Get them from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 12 colors).
