    Promising review: "I bought these black platform boots for the added height to wear with my dress pants so I didn't have to hem. They are perfect! They are so comfortable, so I can wear them for nine hours straight at work! With the thick heel, I can take the stairs up and down and not have any worries like I do when I wear skinny heels. They even look cute with jeans." —Tricia Thomas

    Promising review: "They're very cute and high-quality! The only thing is they are a little snug to slip on and off, but they are extremely comfortable. They are wide set, which is perfect to wear thicker socks with. And the bottom has stars! I want them in every color." —Angie

    Promising review: "These boots are beyond sexy! I absolutely HATE wearing any sort of a heel because, well, I am clumsy. Although, I got the 2'' heel and the way the boots support your foot, you don't even feel like you are wearing a heel. I am a size 9 normally, and they are absolutely true to size. The size 9 fit like a glove. I wore the suede boots with a suede jacket and felt like a million in it. I wore the boots on date night with my husband, and he beyond complimented me all night. Especially nice because he never notices anything I have on. I can only give these boots five stars, but I want to give them 10!" —Well Wishes and God Bless

    Get them from Amazon for $32.89+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 28 styles).

    Promising review: "I LOVE these boots — they are worth every penny and more! I ordered them in the fall and have worn them countless times everywhere. I am usually hard on my shoes, and for whatever reason, these soft calf-skinned boots are super resilient. I have never had to polish them, and they still look brand new. They are super comfortable and go with everything. 10 stars ⭐️!!!" —Carly66

    Get them from Free People for $198 (available in sizes 6–11 and nine colors). 

    5. Some super cozy suede and faux fur-lined boots you can fold over to give 'em a brand new look, then fold up again in an effort to avoid getting a heaping pile of slush in your shoes.

    Promising review: "I love these boots and get TONS of compliments. The color is so pretty! I was searching for something that offered me the warmth and casualness of Uggs but that actually looked attractive and stylish. These fit the bill. Do note, though, I wear an 8.5 and ordered an 8.5. I have to wear thick socks with them to have them fit comfortably, but I had planned to anyway. Without the thick socks, they would be too big. If you plan to wear mostly thin socks or no socks, size down a half size." —Christi

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–12 and 12 colors).

    6. A pair of heeled combat boots for wearing during all of your badass cold-weather activities (you know, like apple picking, pie baking, snuggling around a campfire with your loved ones...).

    Promising review: "At first, I wasn’t completely sold on the bootie. I had eyed it for a while and then decided to go for it. What a wonderful decision that was! They are extremely comfortable and hug your feet as you stand and walk. The heel height is perfect for being on your feet many hours a day. The knit is soft and stretchy and made for true comfort. I would give these boots a 10-star rating if I could. Go ahead, treat yourself...your feet will be so happy you did!" —ShoeLover4Ever

    Get it from Everlane for $130 (available in sizes 5–11 and three colors).

    Promising review: "I really like these shoes a lot — they're incredibly comfortable for being heeled boots, and I can stand in them all day at work. While I've only gone through one winter with these so far (in Chicago), they still look great! I also sprayed them with water protectant, and it didn't affect the suede material at all, so I would 10/10 recommend these." —Sarasri

    Get them from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in seven colors).

    12. Some slouchy calf boots for a relaxed fit that'll lend itself to so many different vibes and occasions, from jeans to dresses to leggings and beyond!

    Promising review: "These boots are so cute. They fit very well and are very comfortable. Easy to pull on and take off. I think the slouch in boot is very stylish, and the suede material has a great look. I did weather-proof them before wearing so they wouldn’t get water marks on them. I was pleased when I recently wore them for a wedding, and my feet felt great all day!" —marymo

    Get them from Amazon for $65.79+ (available in sizes 5.5–10 and four colors). 

    13. Some — and I can't emphasize this enough — stunning floral clog boots equipped with all of the fashionable function for your feet: trendy wooden platform, luxe velvet, and even a memory foam insole ~to boot~.

    Promising review: "I do adore these. I’ve always had wide calves, and these took a little elbow grease to get on the first time, but they do zip!

Definitely will be a staple for me to complement all my '60s-inspired outfits!" —Sarah Dean

    Promising review: "These boots are great. I wore them on a date last night, and they looked great. Seem sturdy, but the fabric is lightweight, so if you live in a warm climate, you won't roast! Woohoo! They could use the rubber grippers on the inside top of the boot's shaft, but they stay up pretty well. If you have really skinny thighs, though, that could be a problem." —SweetPeaSupreme

    Promising review: "These are the most comfortable heels I've ever owned. I got them for work and literally feel like I'm walking on clouds around my office. They also get lots of compliments!
