    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I snagged these boots ahead of the fall season last year and you better believe as soon as the first orange leaf hits the ground *these* are what I'll be breaking out again. The fit is fabulous, the color is *even more* fabulous, and the rounded toe with the slightly darker tip is *chef's kiss* perfection.

    2. Knit boots that'll literally *fit like a glove* and probably cause anyone who sees you to give you a double take while wondering "where did they get such FABULOUS footwear?"

    Promising review: "These boots are really comfortable, they have enough stretch to fit across the bridge of my foot but also conform to the foot and look great. Because of this stretch, they are also super easy to put on (even when standing up). Since they are so light in color I was a bit concerned about staining, but I got a small black mark on one of them and it came straight off with just soap and water." β€”Lozz

    Get them from Everlane for $120 (available in sizes 5–11 and three styles).

    3. Nisolo Chelsea boots you'll probably want to snag before your annual visit to the pumpkin patch because they'll look *picture perfect* in your Instagram.


    BuzzFeed Writer Rachel Dunkel recommends these cute boots, she said:

    "I have these boots and L-O-V-E them! They're a great everyday boot that looks amazing with basically everything and ~elevates~ whatever you pair them with. They took a little time to break in around the toe box for me, but 10/10 would do it again. I highly recommend them!"

    Get them from Nisolo for $200 (available in sizes 5–11 and six styles).

    4. Peep-toe booties with VELCRO (!!!) straps that'll make your life SO easy you won't know how you lived this long without them.

    Promising review: "So comfortable! Although these shoes are not leather they look like leather and are very stylish!! Heel wrap attaches with Velcro. They are true to size! I wear a size 9 shoes and bought a 9 and they fit well! Can't wait to wear them on our vacation!" β€”Sandi

    Get them from Amazon for $27.90+ (available in sizes 5-11 and nine styles).

    5. Durable Lucky Brand booties so you can look fashionable without breaking an ankle, which is #goals if you ask me.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed,

    I have these babies in both black and toffee β€” they are a staple in my winter and fall wardrobes. I'm not sure what I'd do without them, honestly. They're so versatile and truly so comfortable. I'm not a girl who is very comfortable in heels, so the fact that these have a TEENY tiny block heel I can walk around wearing without feeling like I'm going to teeter over is a game-changer. I often refer to them as my 'adult' booties, since they make me feel like a refined, classy lady. I love that they have two side zippers, making them super easy to get on and off. They fit true to size and I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a basic bootie to wear throughout multiple seasons.

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 39 styles).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    6. Round-toe booties that'll go with pretty much any outfit you've got in your wardrobe β€” be careful, your sister will try to steal these out from under your nose., Amazon

    I'm loving the chunky (but not too high) heel on these shoes! They come in a handful of trendy colors, so be careful because you may be inclined to buy 'em all.

    Promising review: "I had right ankle surgery six months ago and I was looking for low-heel ankle boots. I ordered these in cognac and they are so comfortable and a beautiful color. The fit is perfect and I feel that my ankle is secure with the zipper. I can't believe the price! I will buy all the colors because the heel size is perfect for me since I'm 5'7". They are good to go out on a weekend with jeans, skirts, or dresses or leggings. I am very happy with my purchase." β€”Veve

    Get them from Amazon for $25+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and seven styles).

    7. Classic tall Ugg boots, because your original pair is probably *super* worn down and you and I both know nothing keeps your legs warmer than these babies.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Ugg boots have been my go-to cozy boot since middle school β€” and I'm sure many of you are in the same boat. They keep my legs nice 'n' warm while ensuring I don't slip on ice. They're a great outdoor snow boot option, you just might want to also invest in an Ugg shoe care kit to protect the suede from the elements.

    Promising review: "Love my Uggs! The only time I have ever spent this much for shoes or boots was when I bought my first pair nine years ago. They are black, Classic Tall, and still look nice even though they have survived quite a bit of wear. Last week I bought a second pair, Classic Tall II in chestnut. This pair has the same high quality, warmth, and comfort. Knowing that the old black Uggs still have several years of use ahead, I didn't mind investing in a second pair. I've never worn a warmer or more comfortable boot!" β€”Anita

    Get them from Amazon for $199.95+ (available in sizes 5–12 and four colors).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    8. Chunky Marc Fisher ankle boots you'd likely see Olivia Rodrigo rockin' while performing "Brutal." They're edgy and will be such a fun addition to your wardrobe.

    Promising review:Β "These are soo cute. I broke them in at a music festival for two days a weekend ago, and these were so comfortable. I love how chunky and modern they are." β€”ringbearer

    Get them from Marc Fisher for $229 (available in sizes 5–12 and three colors) or Nordstrom forΒ $228.95Β (available in sizes 5–11 and in three colors).

    9. Doc Martens, because you can't go wrong with a tried-and-true classic.

    Promising review: "These boots are BEAUTIFUL. Exactly as I remembered from my pair I owned in high school. They fit tight on first wear, especially where the tongue meets the boot (the seam). I wore wet wool socks for three hours in them to soften 'em up and form them to my feet. I wore them with regular socks last night for five hours and they fit AWESOME already. No discomfort at all. Super fast and easy to break in when it comes to a leather boot. My Fryes took months to break in and quite honestly, they still aren't nearly as comfortable at these. I'd feel confident wearing these all day or to walk around in a lot. LOVE LOVE THEM." β€”Sjeasley

    Get them from Amazon for $95.12+ (available in sizes 6–11 and four styles).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    10. Heeled combat boots with a chunky heel you can throw on when you feel like your outfit needs a badass boost. Stomp all over those ~haterz~.


    Promising review: "I LOVE THESE! They are extremely comfortable. I wore them to dinner AND grocery shopping and never had sore feet! The height is perfect also! I didn’t feel like I was towering over everyone as I passed them like I usually do in heels. For reference I am 5’7”. I also love how they still look good with my skinny ankles LOL. I have long chicken legs and have an issue with ankle boots because they make me look silly I never wear heels but I always want to, I bought these because of the heel and I just can’t say enough good about them." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–12 and two styles).

    11. Ankle booties you'll be able to rely on to keep you warm even when wearing cropped pants on a cold morning., Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been wearing them constantly with the snow and ice. They have good traction. They aren't as warm as a leather shoe would be, but I can get from my car to wherever I'm going without freezing. They are super cute with skinny jeans or leggings. Since I am on a budget the price was great and so far I am very pleased with how they are holding up. I ordered the black and they go with everything." β€”Styleshopper

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–10 and three styles).

    12. Round-toe booties with fuzzy liners you can either pull up to keep your legs warmer or fold down for a more chic look.


    Promising review: "These boots are so cute! I usually don't like anything with much of a heel but these are easy to walk in. The lining is soft and fuzzy, very warm! They have good traction on the bottom too. I like that you can fold the top down or leave it up. I ordered my usual size 9 and they fit great!" β€”Sara

    Get them from Amazon for $40.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–10 and five colors).

    13. Slip-on booties with a chunky heel that'll make you wanna channel your inner-diva and strut like you're walking the runway even though in reality you're in the aisle of the supermarket., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these boots! They are my daily go-to shoe! I live where it is icy and snowy. The traction on these boots allows me to wear them in the snow and then in to work without changing shoes in bad weather. They are not warm. This works for me because I drive to work. There was a small amount of initial breaking in, But they are great! I have them in black and brown!" β€”pmctag6

    Get them from Amazon for $27+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and four styles).

    14. Slip-on booties with a pointed toe to add a little ~somethin' somethin'~ to your winter uniform of an oversized sweater and jeans.,

    Promising review: "Perfection!! The COLOR is so lovely! They fit so comfortably it's truly shocking!! I have a slight bunion on my right foot and ALL shoes hurt my feet. These are the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. They look and feel great. I can walk in them for hours with no problems and they are so true to size. In addition, I have a small heel and these fit perfect. I plan to buy several more pairs in other colors. And the price is amazingly affordable!!!" β€”Katy R

    Get them from Amazon for $19.89+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 15 styles).

    15. Square toe Chelsea boots for anyone whose pair of the classic shoe could use an upgrade after trudging around in them last winter β€” go on, treat yourself.

    Promising review: "This is my second pair. I bought a pair of black and love them so much and decided to get another color. They are very comfortable to walk in, no rubbing anywhere and no need to break them in. I ordered half size bigger to have more room for thicker socks. The bottom is hard if you are on your feet all day, so the half size up also allow me to put a soft insole. Beautiful design and color, works with all kinds of pants and dress/skirts." β€”irenehy

    Get them from Everlane for $195 (available in sizes 5–11 and three styles).

    16. Lace-up ankle booties your squad will be begging you to tell them where you picked 'em up from when you wear them.,

    Promising review: "These shoes are good quality for a very cheap price. I get lots of compliments on them. They're great for someone like me who never wears heels because these are easy to walk and balance in, and it will be a long time before your feet start to hurt. I would definitely buy again if I needed to." β€”Joy

    Get them from Amazon for $17.82+ (available in sizes 5–10 and six styles).

    17. Thigh-high suede booties you can wear to channel your inner–Ariana Grande. Go ahead, strut your stuff, Honey!


    Promising review: "Love, love, love these boots! Just buy them! Wore them for eight hours straight for the first time I put them on, and my feet were fine at the end of day. Very, very comfy and they stayed up perfectly the whole day! So happy I just went for it and purchased these! Note: I also have a very wide foot." β€”Amanda Pulvidente

    Get them from Amazon for $38.78+ (available in sizes 5–11 and six styles).

    18. Velvet combat boots to give a more delicate look to a typically aggressive shoe style.

    pink velvet combat boots

    Promising review: "They have held up wonderfully and even withstood slight scuffs in the velvet! The rose color seems to go with everything! Very comfortable with a large enough toe box for people with long feet. The laces are well-made and the soles have not cracked yet or come away from the toe box as can happen when the toe box gets bent away from the heel." β€”Jeny Kc

    Get them from Amazon for $53.63+ (available in sizes 6–11 and seven colors).

    19. Steve Madden ankle boots you'll want to write a love song about thanks to their bedazzled accents and how comfortable they are.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these boots. They are so comfortable. I fell in love when I walked into my hair salon and three stylists were all wearing them. They praised the longevity of standing and no fatigue. I have since worn them while walking all over the city in great comfort and warmth all while being super cute." β€”Laura A.

    Get them from Amazon for $112.29+ (available in sizes 5–13, wide, and in seven colors and styles).Β

    20. Quilted boots you'll enjoy just as much as the actual quilt your grandma knit for you last Christmas.,

    Promising review: "I love these boots!! These are much better made than the last few pairs I’ve bought from department stores! They fit perfectly around my slender calves. I hate when boots gap around my legs and have trouble finding good fitting ones. I’m VERY happy with these!!!" β€”Amy G

    Get them from Amazon for $13.97+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and six styles).

    21. Booties with a side zipper and a casual low block heel you'll feel comfortable enough in to wear them out to dinner or while running errands.


    Promising review: "Love this cute, stylish, and comfy bootie! Wore the first time to work which is 50/50 sitting and walking around the facility and not only did I receive compliments on how cute they looked, I felt good wearing them. No issue with arch support, the toe area was fine and fit nicely to wear it has the stylish round toe but yet my foot fit so nice in it." β€”Pam

    Get them from Amazon for $25+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and seven colors).

    22. Detailed cowboy boots you can count on to put a lil' pep in your step., Amazon

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised when I received them! For the price, I expected just so-so construction, but they are well made, look 'expensive' and fit perfectly. They're easy to walk in, comfortable, and after a couple of nights out dancing and out and about they haven't scuffed, stretched, or started to peel." β€”TS

    Get them from Amazon for $59.95 (available in sizes 6–11 and three styles).

    23. Pull on booties with a kitten heel that'll add some extra sex appeal to even your tamest of outfits., Amazon

    Promising review: "Your boot collection isn't complete without this one. It pretty much goes with everything, so you can easily justify this purchase. The microsuede fabric makes the boot look expensive. The standout to me is the elastic at mid-foot on either side of the boot. It not only adds visual interest, but it also makes the boot flex with your foot as you move. This boot is oh-so-comfy! The heel isn't what I'd call high, but I love a stilt. All-in-all, I HIGHLY recommend this boot!" β€”Antoinette

    Get them from Amazon for $27.26+ (available in sizes 5–12 and three styles).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Get them from Amazon for $29.12+ (available in sizes 5–10.5 and two styles).

    25. Over-the-knee lace-up boots you can count on to look absolutely gorgeous when paired with jeans or a dress β€” a must-have for anyone looking to take their style to the next level this fall., Amazon

    Promising review: "These heels are a STATEMENT PIECE, y'all. I wore these for an entire day while walking around Boston in the rain and they held up wonderfully. My knees started to ache by the end of the day because I had been heel striking (aka walking like I was fly) but my feet weren't sore, which surprised me. The laces are functional, so the calf width is totally adjustable. I sized up and I think there's enough wiggle room for some real socks for when it's cold. I'm 5'8'' and they came just above my knees, which is amazing as a tall girl! Buy these!!!" β€”Arielle Cason

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 12 colors).

    Get them from Amazon for $32.98+ (available in sizes 5–11 and two styles).

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99+Β (available in sizes 5–12 and 14 colors).

    Vince Camuto

    BuzzFeed editor Abby Kass picked these up for the fall:

    "I recently got these boots in black, and I'm obsessed with them. They do run a bit small, so I would order a half size up to make sure they fit properly. That being said, they are so comfortable. Yes, the heel has a bit of height to it, but you really can't tell. And the style is unmatched. I can't wait to wear these all the time in the coming months."

    Get them from Vince Camuto for $169 (available in sizes 5–12 and in five colors).Β
