    1. Ankle booties that'll be your go-to shoe from now until the sun comes back out...and maybe even a little after that.,

    Promising review: "These boots are amazing for the price! I am a size 7 and ordered the 7 and they fit perfectly with a pair of no-show socks, maybe just a little loose if I wear them with tights. I wear these to work in Wyoming often and have not once slipped or slid on the ice and snow! I think they are well-made and do not seem cheap. I can wear them all day at work and my feet are not sore by the end of the day. I ordered the clay color and it is the perfect taupe-colored bootie. I love them so much I'm about to order them in another color. :)" —awtnm

    Get them from Amazon for $19+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 17 colors).

    2. Chunky-heel booties designed with a cute side zipper detail and in a perfect white color so you can try out the trend without breaking the bank.,

    Promising review: "Chic at a low cost. I was iffy because the price point was so low, I was scared they'd be costumey. But these boots are a killer mod and chic addition to my wardrobe. Fall in California. Arrived without a scratch, double wrapped in tissue paper with a branded box. They have a zipper on the outside for decoration and a true zipper on the inside to get on and off. UPDATE: I've worn them out three times now (twice for grocery runs and once to work) they are very comfortable but are losing their shape a bit. Not necessarily a bad thing (I'm not docking any stars), since I'm interested to see how this faux leather will wear in." —Sasha McKinley-Yunker

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

    3. Stunning, splurge-worthy Paris Texas over-the-knee boots that'll last you a freakin' lifetime.

    These boots are a bit narrow, so they'd be a better fit for anyone with smaller calves. They have a 17" shaft and a 14 3/4" calf circumference.

    Get them from Nordstrom for $865 (available in sizes 5-11 and in three colors).

    4. Designer-inspired faux-suede pull-on boots, because the originals are so damn expensive., Amazon

    Promising review: "These are the closest Stuart Weitzman dupes I've been able to find. They don't have a zipper, which is crucial. The faux suede is a little different in person (it's darker), but as long as you aren't wearing one of each boot no one will really notice. I have attached photos of my comparison after purchasing the Stuart Weitzman — which are fabulous but I ended up returning them because I couldn't justify the price for a seasonal shoe trend. I think the black is the best bet for a 'dupe' because the fabric and coloring will be less obvious. But the wine and gray colors I've ordered are very pretty and exactly what I was looking for. You can't tell from these photos, but the Amazon pair isn't quite as skin-tight through the calf and ankle as the SW, although I wasn't wearing jeans under them (which makes them fit tighter)." —Elizabeth

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-10 and in 9 colors).

    5. Stacked-heel zip booties that'll make an entrance before you even walk into the room.

    Promising review: "I love everything about these shoes. I always get a lot of compliments when I wear them. If you like to wear a thick sock or have a wider foot you may want to go up a half size. They do feel a little stiff at first but after wearing them once they do soften up." —Carrie

    Get them from Amazon for $30.67+ (available in sizes 5.5-12 and in five colors/prints).

    6. Lace-up riding boots comfy enough to wear for hours and hours — which you might have to because once you lace these babies up you're not gonna wanna take them off (if not at least because it'll take too long).,

    Promising review: "These were comfortable all night. The first time I ever wore them I was at a birthday party at a club and danced in them for five hours. My legs and feet hurt a little bit after but if I only danced for like three hours, I would've felt no pain whatsoever. I received compliments and they were very comfortable. The laces kept coming untied until I knotted them AND tucked them into the top of the boot." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $18.23+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 12 colors).

    7. Classic ankle-high rubber Sam Edelman rain boots for when you're in the mood to do some puddle jumping.,

    Promising review: "I bought these boots after trying them on in the store, which did not have the color I wanted. After reviewing the product on Amazon I decided to order the glossy olive-green boots. I sized up (since they do not offer half sizes) and they fit great. Room for a thick pair of socks and comfortable. I will be buying another pair in a different color!" —Jasmine

    Get them from Amazon for $24.75+ (available in sizes 4-13, some wide sizes, and in 15 colors).

    8. Floral-print Schutz booties to add a little pop to your T-shirt-and-jeans look.


    Get them from Nordstrom for $134.96 (available in sizes 6.5-11 and in two prints).

    9. Classic waterproof duck boots that'll actually look super cute paired with a flowy dress.,

    Promising review: "I am thrilled with these boots! I took a chance on them and went to Seattle in the winter hoping they would keep my feet dry and comfy. They did not disappoint! We hiked, walked on beaches, it rained, and it snowed, and I wore these boots every day and my feet were always warm and dry, and they held up perfectly. Not to mention they looked great! :) They made this pregnant lady very happy and I highly recommend them." —L.McDaniel

    Get them from Amazon for $29.74+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in three colors).

    10. Tall croc-embossed Hunter rain boots so elegant, they'll make even the cruddiest of weather conditions seem like a stroll down the red carpet.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love these rain boots. I got them in black and they are beautiful. I have been searching for a pair of Hunter rain boots that are classic yet fun and these are it! They are super comfortable and ultra-stylish." —Alpharetta

    Get them from Nordstrom for $69.98 (available in sizes 5-10 and in two colors).

    11. Statement-making over-the-knee boots designed with a very walkable heel and just enough wow factor to have you turning heads.,

    Promising review: "Buy. These. Boots. STOP YOUR THIGH HIGH BOOT SEARCH HERE, LADIES! I spent days and days searching the internet for TRULY thigh-high boots. I’m 5’7” (and a half) and 160 lbs. so a 21” shaft (arch of foot to the top of boot) does NOT do it for me. I was looking for something that came a few inches OVER the knee. These boots are true-to-size and the measurements provided are accurate. A 26” shaft was exactly what my long legs needed. I have pretty average size legs, as far as width goes, and these boots are perfectly snug and don’t fall down, there is even a sort of elastic under the knee which was NOT uncomfortable to my pleasant surprise. They don’t really stretch. The heel is a perfect height — it’s not a stiletto and it’s also not too chunky. Please trust me, I did the research for you already, BUY THESE BOOTS!" —Catherine Doucet

    Get them from Amazon for $45+ (available in size 5.5-10 and in 17 colors).

    12. Velvet cowboy boots — which sound like a lot but are actually surprisingly glamorous.

    Promising review: "Cutest booties! They are better quality than I expected for the price. I am normally a 7.5 or 8 and I got these in a 7.5 and they are a perfect fit!" —Casey Jones

    Get them from Amazon for $29.13+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in four colors).

    13. Totally practical and cozy mid-calf snow boots designed to be durable, water- and wind-resistant, with a cushioned footbed, and 200g Thermolite insulation rated to -25ºF.


    Promising review: "I was looking high and low for a good pair of snow boots knowing I was going to Upstate NY in -10-degree weather and lots of snow. I was going to go with a pair of Columbia boots but decided to save myself a lot of money and try out these. I’m so thrilled that these boots keep me warm, dry, and look good too! I ordered a size up — I’m normally a 9 but I ordered a 10 and they fit perfectly! I wore these both with regular socks and with thick thermal socks. Either way kept my feet nice and warm. I wore these for four days in the snow, negative-degree weather, and for snow tubing in the mountains. These are so impressive, I’m so happy with my purchase! Oh and they’re very soft and comfy inside and actually WATERPROOF, which was what I wanted! :)" —Jayme

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 17 colors).

    14. Showstopping thigh-high embroidered stiletto boots you can wear with...honestly who cares, because no one is going to be looking at anything other than these boots!,

    Promising review: "Received boots a day earlier than expected. All I can say is OMG! These boots are gorgeous! I bought a size 10 and they are a true fit. I also have wider calves and slightly fatter feet but these were PERFECT! I cannot stop looking at them; the stitching is impressive. Cannot wait to buy another pair of boots." —Raisa

    Get them from Amazon for $66 (available in sizes 5.5-11 and with or without back laces).

    15. Glittering lined snow boots to keep your little piggies warm and glam all winter long.,

    Promising review: "They are super perfect. After reading all the reviews I decided to order them and in my regular fit. They fit perfectly and keep my feet warm and dry. I went into the snow and got into a little water area as well. And, yes! They are waterproof! The grip is good and they are lightweight so they feel comfortable as well. I bought these for my Canada trip and I would recommend these shoes to anyone who is looking for warm waterproof shoes. Can't beat this price!" —Bhavs

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 10 colors).

    16. Lace-up heart print Dr. Martens, because you like to wear your heart on your sleeve and on your feet.


    Get them from Nordstrom for $159.95 (available in sizes 5-11).

    17. Non-slip suede booties you can roll down or keep up, to help make sure your little piggies are warm all the way to market.


    Promising review: "I love these boots! I've worn them for two days and have received so many compliments on them. One person asked me if they were snow boots? I said yes! She said they are very 'fashion-forward.' I guess snow boots are not normally cute. I wasn't expecting much for the price but they are surprisingly good construction and nice quality for the price. They arrived before the expected arrival date. They are as pictured, which is great. They are very comfortable, very warm, they are lined all the way through. The inside lining is not as thick as the faux fur but it's thick. You could wear one pair of thin socks with these and still be warm and comfortable. Regular socks are fine with these too. I don't know if they are waterproof yet — I am waiting for a big snowfall to come to find out. They really do look like suede. I like them so much I am going to order another pair in black." —ScrollerJCT

    Get them from Amazon for $30.69+ (available in sizes 4-11 and in five colors).

    18. Elastic-ankle Chelsea bootie for a minimalist leather shoe with a slightly soft footbed and a sturdy little rubber sole., Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this bootie about two years ago and every time I wear them people ask me where I bought them because they're so cute and simple. I love these boots!👌👌" —sthef

    Get them from Amazon for $16.27+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in five colors).

    19. Block-heel winter booties you'll look adorable in while you trek through the snow.


    Promising review: "The box did smell of some kind of spray paint or something, I suspect it was sprayed with weatherproofing because the shoes had a faint aroma. Nothing terribly noticeable after I threw the box out though. The lining is slightly less 'furry' but still warm. I usually wear a size 7 to 7.5 in US women's sizes, and these fit perfectly. If you have a wide foot I'd suggest maybe ordering up. My feet are average (not narrow) and they fit perfectly. Narrow feet are probably ok with thick socks, but there's enough toe room you could probably order a size down if you are worried about it. All in all very cute, sturdy, seem well made. The side flaps can unsnap and be upright, though there are no hooks for the laces obviously. The heel is about 2 inches, plenty comfortable. I love them! if I had the money (and patience with shipping, lol) I'd order more colors! :)" —Katrina Brown

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes 4-10.5 and in nine colors).

    20. Iridescent Dr. Martens boots that'll discreetly give you that magical look your tired paws are looking for.


    Get them from Nordstrom for $129.95 (available in sizes 5-9).

    21. Waterproof mid-calf snow boots designed with a fully lined interior and a deep rubber thread — you won't be slipping and sliding in these.,

    Promising review: "I just received these boots and tried them just around the house. Super comfy and light, very warm. They have a thick fur lining inside to keep my feet warm. They look waterproof, though I haven't tested them yet. My favorite part is the zipper!! The laces make the boots adjustable to fit snug or loose to your calf. So different types of pants can fit in them. I am ready for the snow!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 18 colors).

    22. Water-resistant, fur-lined, anti-slip snow boots that'll be so pretty in pink!,

    Promising review: "Really nice so far, only worn for a few days but very comfortable. Material seems water-resistant. The fur on the inside is extremely warm but temps haven’t reached super-low where I live yet so I will update when it does get colder. Very cute, I’ve gotten lots of compliments so far and for the price, you can’t go wrong. I’m normally an 8 so I bought an 8.5 as I normally do for winter boots so I can wear bulkier socks. They’re a little roomier than usual but still comfortable. UPDATE! Two weeks later, I’ve been wearing these boots EVERY DAY! I love them! I even wore them to a cold and extremely rainy tailgate and football game and although the rest of me was cold and soaking wet, my feet stayed warm and dry! Awesome boots!" —Sarah

    Get them from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in size 5.5-15 and in eight colors).

    23. Simple and chic over-the-knee boots designed with a 3" block heel so you can actually walk in them all day long.,

    Promising review: "These boots fit my wide calves! (5'3", 180 lbs.) I was pretty surprised actually. I usually wear a 9 or 9.5 so I sized up to a 10, and they fit well. They are ALMOST a little too tight overtop of pants but fit over leggings and bare legs really easily. They are comfortable to walk in as well. Delivery was a breeze and the price is very affordable. I am definitely considering ordering again in different colors." —rkathman

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in size 5-11 and in 15 colors).

    24. Very cozy Muk Luk wrap boots that almost look like a cuddly sweater just for your feet.

    Promising review: "They are very cute boots and fit true-to-size, I was worried they would be a little snug at first but they are not. They haven't had any issues with the wrap falling down. The quality is great and they are very warm, I live in Minnesota and our winters can get bitterly cold. I'm not sure they would stay as warm with prolonged wear outside but running about to and from work or out shopping would be fine. I love these boots and would definitely recommend to my friends and others!" —Samantha

    Get them from Amazon for $29.92+ (available in size 6-11 and in 14 colors).

    25. Investment-worthy Alexander Wang riding boots designed with their signature cutout heel that need to be in your closet right this instant.


    Get them from Nordstrom for $995 (available in sizes 5-11).

    26. Fluffy shearling and suede lace-up Ugg Neumel boots for all those winter nights on the town.


    Promising review: "I have always been a huge UGG fan, but these boots are my absolute favorite! They are super warm and comfy and just like regular UGG boots they are roomy, so you can round down a half size." —HuskyNurse

    Get them from Nordstrom for $129.95 (available in sizes 5-12 and in seven colors).

    27. Lace details Splendid suede booties that are the exact ones Nancy Sinatra was singing about when she said, "These boots are made for walking."


    Promising review: "I ordered these boots with relatively medium expectations given they are not very expensive. I am blown away by the craftsmanship, quality, look, and feel when I finally wore them! They are absolutely adorable with jeans, leggings, skirts, and dresses. If you like to wear bootcut pants and tuck them into boots, these would also be absolutely perfect as they have an adjustable opening. I cannot be happier and I have recommended this pair to many friends." —carriechang

    Get them from Nordstrom for $60.42 (available in sizes 5.5-9.5 and in two colors).

    28. Cute cutout booties designed with a delightful ruffle detail to help add some whimsy to your step.

    Promising review: "It took about a month and a half to actually get here (with delays). Other than that they fit true to size and are really great quality! I love them! I’m a size 9 and they actually make my feet look small." —Amanda Johnson

    Get them from Amazon for $23.98+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 24 colors).

    29. Block-heel rugged booties embossed to perfection for a subtle little upgrade to a classic boot.


    Promising review: "I love it! Very comfortable and stylish booties. They're true-to-size, but for narrow feet. So if you usually wear a medium or would like wear it with warm socks go a 1/2 size up. I have narrow feet and ordered my normal size and they fit great!" —Vitaliyy

    Get them from Nordstrom for $39.98+ (available in sizes 5.5-10 and in two colors).

    30. Slouchy suede Splendid knee-high boots perfect for layering under your favorite midi dress.


    Promising review: "Great purchase. I love these boots so much I’m considering buying a second pair. The quality is great for the price. Soft, plush suede, well-made, and comfortable heel. True-to-size and width. The shaft of the boot has ample room for thicker boot socks or pants. Great purchase. ❤️" —1DENIMGIRL

    Get them from Nordstrom for $137.37 (available in sizes 5-9.5 and in two colors).

    31. And mid-calf sock booties designed with an attention-grabbing oval heel, because they hate to see you go, but with these, they're gonna love seeing you walk away., Amazon

    Promising review: "Surprisingly comfortable! I wasn't too sure about the heel being comfortable because of how it looks but these don't seem hard to walk on. I also love how fast they ship. So far I am very happy." —Europe

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in sizes 5.5-10 and in three colors).
