    1. A pair of 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 four colors).

    2. Sleek rubber-soled block-heel booties with a thin faux-velvet inner lining so you're always chic and warm when you're wearing them.

    Promising review: "Exactly as described! I ordered a half size bigger because I was worried it would be too narrow. Now I wish I ordered my right size." —Bella

    Get them from Amazon for $32 (available in sizes 4.5-12 and in three colors).

    3. A pair of short iridescent Hunter rain boots so damn beautiful, they'll make even the shittiest of weather conditions seem not so bad., Nordstrom

    Get them from Nordstrom for $150 (available in sizes 5-10). You can also get the tall version for $165 from Hunter (available in sizes 5-11 and in two colors).

    4. 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 6-11 and with or without back laces).

    5. A pair of block-heel suede booties designed with some super-chic leather piping for a subtle little upgrade to your everyday shoe.

    TJ Maxx

    Get them from TJ Maxx for $39.99 (available in sizes 6-10).

    6. A designer-inspired faux-suede pull-on pair, because the originals are so damn expensive.,

    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 $19.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 15 colors/styles).

    7. A pair of flip-sequins Dr. Martens boots that are basically two sparkly pairs of boots for the price of one!


    Get them from Nordstrom for $129.95 (available in sizes 5-11).

    8. Lace-up over-the-knee 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 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 $15.87+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 14 colors).

    9. A pair of stacked-heel zip-up booties that'll make an entrance way 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 $19.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-12 and in five colors/prints).

    10. A classic pair of 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 $26.99+ (available in sizes 4-13 and in nine colors).

    11. These 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: "I love these shoes. I wear them for work often and they look great with dresses and pants. Received so many compliments from friends and strangers asking where they can get a pair. I will definitely be ordering at least one more in a different color. I have a wide foot so it was a little snug when I first put them on but now they fit perfectly. No cushion inside so I would recommend buying an insert if you are going to be on your feet for long." —Caroline Kelly

    Get them from Amazon for $22+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 23 colors).

    12. A pair of red suede Sam Edelman knee-high boots that are the exact ones Nancy Sinatra was singing about when she said, "These boots are made for walking."


    Promising review: "I generally wear a size 9 but in certain shoes, I size up. I sized up to a 9.5 in these but I don’t think I needed to. I don’t regret it because now I can wear the boots with socks. They have the tendency to slouch, but either way, they are beautiful and I feel like you can dress them up or down. I got in them in black, but I want them in caramel as well!" —Acassidy88

    Get them from Nordstrom for $149.90 (available in sizes 5-12 and in black, red, and caramel).

    13. A glittering pair of 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 $19.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 18 colors).

    14. A pair of statement 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 $17.53+ (available in sizes 5.5-8 and in champagne and snake print).

    15. Suede Splendid knee-high boots perfect for layering under your favorite midi dress.


    Promising review: "These boots have a very long boot shaft. The low dip in the front comes to right at the base of my kneecap and the sides come up over where my knee bends; they fit much like an actual equestrian riding boot (but with the high heel). I don't think they were meant to be worn slouched as the zipper at the ankle prevents much slouch. The leather is soft and pliable so there really isn't pinching at the knee. I wear a true size 8, bought the 8 and they'll work but they are on the snug side. Probably will keep them but they did leave my ankles black after trying them on. If you have shorter legs, these may prevent you from bending your knees easily." —lara09

    Get them from Nordstrom for $166.80 (available in sizes 5.5-10 and in brown and black).

    16. An elastic ankle Chelsea bootie for a minimalist leather shoe with a slightly soft footbed and a sturdy little rubber sole.,

    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 $20.92+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in four colors).

    17. A pair of pointy-toed snake print Jeffrey Campbell booties that'll add a little pop (and height thanks to their 3.5" heel) to your T-shirt-and-jeans look.


    Get them from Nordstrom for $164.95 (available in sizes 5-11 and in three prints).

    18. Chunky-heel booties designed with a cute side zipper detail and two-tone monochromatic look.

    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 $26.90+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in black and taupe).

    19. These lace-up 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 perfect. 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 $29.99+ (available in sizes 3-11 and in 15 colors).

    20. A pair of stunning, splurgeworthy Chloe caged booties that'll last you a freakin' lifetime.

    Get them from Nordstrom for $1,390 (available in sizes 4.5-12 and in four colors). You can find a similar design from Sam Edelman for $179.95 (available in sizes 5-12 and in three colors).

    21. A waterproof mid-calf snow boot designed with a fully lined interior and a deep rubber thread.

    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 type of pants can fit in them. I am ready for the snow!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes 5-10 and in four colors).

    22. A pair of glittering rainbow sock boots for all those winter nights on the town.


    Get them from Asos for $24 (available in sizes 5-10).

    23. These 100% vegan buckle-strap ankle booties you'll likely wind up wearing more than any other booties in your closet.

    Promising review: "These boots are exactly as pictured They are comfortable and I have gotten a lot of compliments on them. They’re also very versatile and go with anything. Jeans and a cute top or a dress! Since I wasn’t sure what the sizing would be like, I ordered a half size up. It wasn’t necessary but with my socks, it’s not too bad. I would order your normal size." —Sara Marie Paisley

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes 5-11 and in 18 colors).

    24. A pair of Brazilian-made leather Schutz boots that need to slither into your closet right this instant.

    25. 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 perfect! 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 $32.99 (available in sizes 5-12 and in 17 colors).

    26. A pair of Nordstrom's 1901 Whitaker Boots so you can have a chic, totally glamorous pair of shoes you'll actually be able to walk in all day long.


    Promising review: "So pleased when these boots arrived picture-perfect. They're modern, unique, and sexy. One of my best purchases! They're comfortable too. The heel's not too tall and it's just well designed. They stand out from the crowd! The zipper and leather quality show how they're well-crafted and designed. I want the silver ones too!!" —Nina7156

    Get them from Nordstrom for $51.98 (available in sizes 5-11 and in five colors).

    27. 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.,

    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 $14.96 (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in nine colors).

    28. A pair of 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 $10.99 (available in sizes 4-11 and in five colors).

    29. Or just take a cue from the one and only Michelle Obama and splurge on these sparkling thigh-high Balenciaga boots.

    Matches Fashion
