    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page.

    1. These Kate Spade 'Go' flats to have some seriously adorable footwear.

    Promising Review: "Cooler than Uber! These will definitely brighten things up on a cold day. They do, as others have noted, gap on the sides. However, I don't step out of them. A tad unforgiving in the toe box, but not bad. If shoes were rated on the number of hours you could walk around comfortably downtown, these would be a three." β€”VKzz

    Get them from Nordstrom for $278. (Available in sizes 5-11.)

    2. These Miu Miu lace-up flats for when you're a ballerina during the day and a rock 'n' roll legend at night.

    Promising Review: "I love the trend of ballet-inspired flats but I was skeptical to spend this much on a pair somewhat similar to what I have. However...I absolutely LOVE these shoes! The leather is so soft and I already know these shoes won't go through that uncomfortable breaking-in stage. They're like wearing fashionable slippers. I'd recommend ordering 1/2 size up." β€”Trendychik1

    Get them at Nordstrom for $670. (Available in a variety of different colors and in sizes 4-12.)

    3. These Vince 'Warren' suede platform skate sneakers so you can elevate that T-shirt and jeans look you've been rocking since high school.

    Promising Review: "This is my second pair! I love them, they're comfy and nice. Just make sure to take a half size smaller." β€”Paula L

    Get them from Saks Fifth Avenue for $225. (Available in black, pink, or gray and in sizes 5-11.)

    4. These Valentino 'Rockstud' pumps that'll have you feeling like a rock star.

    Promising Review: "I went to Nordstrom to try them on because they suggested ordering a whole size up. This was not the case for me. I am a 6/36, and I fit perfectly in a 6/36 in these. These are my first Valentino shoes, and they are not my last. I picked up Rockstud strap sandals while I was there too because I loved these so much. I was also impressed with how comfortable they were. They look great with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans rolled up, and that is how I will probably wear them most of the time. That's what attracted me to them; the fact that you can wear them with just jeans and a T-shirt. I was hesitant to purchase them, but I'm so glad I did!" β€”sab5

    Get them at Nordstrom for $1,095. (Available in sizes 5-10 and in flats.)

I haven't worn heels in a few years and went through an entire evening dancing like I never missed a day in heels! Husband loved them, many compliments, stunning shoe.

    Get them from Nordstrom for $775. (Available in black or silver and in sizes 4.5-7.)

    15. These Prada platform sandals because these would make for the ultimate I can totally wear high heels all day and not be in excruciating pain shoes.

    Promising Review: "You get the height without the pain! It is a very sexy shoe with jeans. The red color is also a nice bright red shade." β€”Luv2shopButpicky

    Get them from Nordstrom for $720. (Available in black or red and in sizes 6.5-10.5.)

    16. These Vince 'Maxwell' flats that are so chic they'll upgrade any outfit you wear with them.

    Promising Review: "Worth the BIG bucks! I have a narrow heel and a wide toe area, which makes finding a flat super difficult. I usually wind up with a shoe that's tight in the front and loose on the back. I was first attracted to these because of the smaller opening, (meaning less likely to fall off the heel). The super supple leather meant it will not be tight in the toe area. Sure enough, the design kept it comfortably on my foot. I also love the simple design. I don't want metals, buttons, bows, and all the other stuff." β€”railqueen

    17. These Prada driving loafers for a classic shoe you'll wear for a lifetime.

    Promising Review: "Love these shoes! The fit isn't perfect. I'm between a 9-10 and went for the 10. The color is great, and will be perfect with jeans for the fall!" β€”spatzkey

    Promising Review: "After buying these shoes I didn't have enough money for rent, food, or bills. However, I look FABULOUS!!!!! People can't help but stare at me as I walk by and I'm sure it's the shoes and not the fact that I haven't showered in eight days. These shoes are my ticket to the big time I can feel it!" β€”lj
