    Have you been wearing the same old, boring heels to all of your dates? Well then, IT'S TIME FOR AN UPGRADE!

    NBC / Via

    Whether you have an exclusive significant other or you're playing the field, your feet deserve only the finest in footwear. Here are some prime possibilities:

    1. Faux-suede, chunky-heeled shoes that reviewers say are so comfortable you won't even realize you've got on heels.


    I have a pair of block heels just like these and they are my absolute favorites! I wore them for hours on my feet at my bridal shower and my best friend's shower when I was a bridesmaid. If any of you have been in either of those roles, you know there is no such thing as sitting during either event. These shoes saved me!

    Promising review: "Let me start off by saying how obsessed I am with these shoes. They are the MOST comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I'm going to order the other colors. I've worn these shoes all day, and I can go on all night too. However, I recommend anyone interested in buying these shoes to go a half size smaller. You won't regret it." —Mj

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–11.5 and in 15 colors).

    2. Transparent heels to channel your inner Kim Kardashian even if Yeezys aren't in your budget.


    I worship Kardashian fashion just like the best of 'em (we have five pairs of the pricey sneakers in our apartment), but truth be told even I couldn't convince myself to drop hundreds of dollars on a pair of clear heels (even if they were designed by Kanye himself). Get the same look for a lot less with this similar pair.

    Promising review: "Want endless legs? This is your shoe. The transparency creates the illusion and your legs are instantly four inches longer. The heel height elongates your leg muscles, keeping the look sexy and fit. The shoe fits exactly as expected, not small or tight as others have observed. So versatile I'll have to fight myself not to wear these with everything." —Colts Fan Kim

    Get them from Amazon for $23.94+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in three styles).

    3. Suede and patent leather platforms that have a padded footbed that'll show off your long legs without sacrificing comfort.

    Free People

    These Jeffrey Campbell beauties will easily transition from your work look your to date night outfit. They would also look super cute with tights, so you can wear them all year long.

    Get it from Free People for $168 (available in sizes 5–10 and in two styles).

    4. Open-toe heels with crochet detailing, so you can emphasize the more ~delicate~ side of your wardrobe on your next date night.


    I'm extremely accident-prone and even I feel like I could walk a mile in these shoes.

    Promising review: "First...I don't do well in heels but let's face it! They don't make sexy two-inch heels so I took a chance on these for a New Year's weekend black-tie-optional wedding. I would have been satisfied if I wore them for two hours and then shed them for the dance floor. I wore these beautiful shoes, like Lionel Richie would say, ALL NIGHT LONG!!!!!! My husband and I couldn't believe it. They look great and the platform and around-the-ankle strap made me feel so stable and comfy. I even danced in them!!! I highly recommend these beautiful shoes and the price is astounding!" —E. Peters

    Get them from Amazon for $18.65+ (available in sizes 5–10 and in eight colors).

    5. Stiletto sandals with a beaded bow, so chic your date won't be able to tip toe around how fabulous they are.


    From the delicate ankle strap and the slim heel to the glimmering bow, the only complaint I have about these shoes is that they're not already in my closet.

    Get them from Nordstrom for $44.11 (available in sizes 6–11 and in three colors).

    6. Glittering heels that'll make you feel like you're starring in the Victoria's Secret fashion show while walking literally anywhere.


    Looking to outshine everyone else in the room? Throw on these heels and watch as heads turn. While I personally think the glitzy styles are the way to go, if you want a cute heel that's a little more subtle these also come in a number of suede options as well.

    Promising review: "I was super skeptical about buying heels online, but these are gorgeous, well-constructed, and I'm wearing them right now! I would say these are pretty tall and skinny heels — maybe don't buy them unless you're comfortable in heels. Go for it!" —LKT17

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 11 styles).

    7. Neon stilettos to light up your date night like never before.

    8. Or more basic stilettos that can be paired with literally any outfit you own.


    These 4" heels will take your sex appeal to the next level no matter where you're headed on date night. Their design is classic and simple — exactly what you should have in your closet.

    Promising review: "I was not expecting to love these shoes as much as I do. I expected them to be cute (and they were) but they are also so comfortable. I wore them to a wedding and was in them for many many hours and my feet didn't hurt even a little bit. They're definitely the most comfortable heels I've ever worn." —Emily Czajowski

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes 5–10 and in 20 colors).

    9. Heeled booties you won't freak out over if they get wet because they're made of faux suede.


    At this price, even if you wear these once and they get snowed or rained on you'll barely bat an eyelash. Featuring a round toe and a tapered heel, these booties are super cute and perfect for pairing with a dress or fitted jeans.

    Promising review: "My wife loves them! I bought these, along with two other pairs, as Christmas gifts for her. They fit great and the size runs exact. She says they are comfortable and she receives several compliments each time she wears them. Also the traction, important when wearing heels of this height, is very supportive and well made. She wears them once or twice a week and they seem durable. She says she would recommend them for anyone looking for cute booties that can be dressed up or down." —Matthew

    Get them from Amazon for $19+ (available in size 5.5–10, styles vary in availability depending on size).

    10. Magical heels that'll let you live out the Taylor Swift lyrics, "Darling, I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream."

    Promising review: "These are amazing heels! They're actually the first pair of heels that I've ever owned that are comfortable to wear. I'm extremely happy with this purchase!

    Nordstrom Rack

    If you don't own a pair of rose gold heels, you're going to want to now after seeing this pair. Order 'em and then strut your stuff on date night (even if you're a little irritated at your S.O. for possibly tossing your very expensive dress into the wash without a second thought...true story).

    Get them from Nordstrom Rack for $139.97 (available in sizes 5–11).

    If you want to really leave your date gasping for air, make an entrance in these stunners. They very well may have inspired Rihanna's "shine bright like a diamond" lyrics.

    Promising review: "These shoes are so sparkly and beautiful. I bought these to wear to a wedding and everyone loved them. I purchased in an 8.5, which is my usual shoe size. They were a bit roomy in the front toe strap so I purchased clear inserts for the ball of the feet cushion and they felt very secure. These shoes are easy to walk and dance in with the secure block heel and Velcro ankle strap." —Avantg

    Get them from Free People for $168 (available in sizes 6–10 and in four styles).

    Promising review: "I bought these shoes to wear with my 1940s vintage dress and wow! They are awesome. The strap buckle is actually a clever device to save time buckling. You put the buckle where you want it to be and it slips on in place in front of the hook, which is VERY convenient! They are well made and I am very happy with them. I bought them based on reviews by other Amazon customers, who were right!" —C. Baldwin

    17. Sexy minimalist heels to put the "hot" in red hot this Valentine's Day.

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $29 (available in sizes 6–10).

    18. Classic pumps you'll love so much you'll make excuses to wear them every night, not just on date night.,

    Get them from Nordstrom Rack for $99.97 (available in sizes 6–10 and in four colors).

    22. Pretty stilettos that feature a bow so elegant you won't be able to keep yourself from smiling while wearing them.

Featuring embroidery of Buzz Lightyear and his arch nemesis Zurg and detailed block heels of Woody and Jessie, these shoes are an actual Disney dream come true.

    These mismatched Mary Janes are so unique you'll find yourself planning your outfits around them.

    Promising review: "Adorable shoes! The insides are cushy and I expect they will be more comfortable than the average high heel. They seem very well made with nice, even stitching. The buckle is attached to elastic, which I appreciate as the strap won't cut into my foot when walking around. The rubber soles are awesome. No falls or slips in these. The heels are made of a hard plastic and came with extra heel caps. All in all, good quality with a lot of thought put into comfort." —Jen

I will caution to females to know how to walk in high stilettos because these pumps definitely have almost 4 inches in height. Otherwise strut your stuff and feel great walking in these sassy pumps!" —NordstromsFavoriteFan

    Get them from Nordstrom for $42.18 (available in 5.5–10 and in six styles).
