    If you have to think this long about it, then wouldn't you say you're overdue for a fresh pair of new kicks? I think so — it's time to shop!

    1. A pair of snuggly snow boots, so you can belt out "the cold never bothered me anyway" like Elsa and mean it., Amazon

    DO YOUR BEST, WINTER! You'll be ready to take on the snow after slipping into these bad boys. I've lived in New York my entire life and only just recently invested in an actual pair of snow boots — it was a life-changing decision. No more slipping and sliding on your way into work once you buy these cozy boots.

    Promising review: "I've never bought boots online before. I picked these boots because they looked warm. They fit well even with thick socks. Although winter isn't here yet, I filled a bucket with 4 inches of ice water and put my foot in it. After several minutes, my foot was still warm and, more to the point, dry. I think these boots will do the trick." —Dragon Queen

    Get them from Amazon for $57.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in eight colors).

    2. A pair of retro Oxford flats that will make any outfit look professional and polished AF.


    This pair of Oxford flats will have your friends enviously asking you where you got your classy shoes. Can't you just picture how cute these will look with a dress and tights or with a skinny jean? Obsessed.

    Promising review: "Very nice shoes. They run a tad small, so it may be best to purchase a size up. It will take a little to 'break them in,' as they are traditional Oxfords, but I have received SO many compliments. They are SUPER comfortable for a working girl/guy on the go (or anyone who enjoys a good pair of shoes)." —Erica

    Get them from ModCloth for $49 (available in sizes 5.5-10 and in five colors).

    3. A classic pair of Dr. Martens combat boots, so you can stomp around like you're an angsty teen trolling your local shopping mall., Amazon

    Embrace the nostalgia of growing up in the '90s with these familiar shoes. Made of a super-soft leather, you'll love reintroducing these staple boots into your wardrobe.

    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." —Sjeasley

    Get them from Amazon for $70.16+ (available in sizes 5-13 and in 29 colors).

    4. A pair of suede sneakers with a satin bow on the back that will make any traditional girly-girl scream with excitement.


    How adorable are these glammed-up sneaks? The satin bow on the back adds some extra flair. So sporty-chic!

    Get them from Puma for $44.99 (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in two colors).

    5. A faux-fur-lined rain boot, because you deserve a shoe that will keep your little piggies both warm and dry while you head to the market.


    Did I mention that the faux fur lining is removable?! These are rain boots that will actually meet your needs! You can wear these in rain or snow, but never have to worry about your feet being too hot. Sounds like a shoe dream come true, TBH.

    Promising review: "These boots are awesome for cold winter slush. The lining keeps my feet warm and have the benefit of being waterproof. It is a hard combo to find! They have the function of a snow boot but are cute enough to feel shoe-like for daily wear. The lining is maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of an inch thick. The rubber is plenty flexible and the elastic panels on the sides are great. They are easy to slip on and off quickly. I was just walking through and icy parking lot and the traction is fairly good, about the same as an athletic shoe. I can wear them comfortably all day. They are excellent and I highly recommend them!" —Amanda

    Get them from Amazon for $37.50+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in four colors).

    6. An embroidered pair of ankle boots so freakin' fabulous you won't even want to wear them outdoors for fear of getting them dirty.

    Nordstrom Rack

    Yep, these shoes belong in a museum. They are covered in beautiful flowers and a paisley design — the perfect shoe to really upgrade a basic outfit. If you're a big fan of embroidery (as I am), then you'll need very little encouragement to buy these booties.

    Promising review: "I saw that a friend had these and instantly had to buy myself a pair!! Gorgeous boot and I got tons of compliments the first day I wore them! The embroidery doesn't look flat at all and the colors match with just about anything. I wear these for nine hours at work and though they aren't super comfy, I can wear them all day." —MNMAMA23

    Get them from Nordstrom Rack for $39.97 (available in sizes 6-7.5)

    7. A transparent heel that will let you channel your inner Kim Kardashian even if Yeezys aren't in your budget., Amazon

    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 4 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 $33.23+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in three styles).

    8. A glittering pair of heels, so you will feel like you're starring in the Victoria's Secret fashion show while walking literally anywhere., Amazon

    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 $26.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 11 styles).

    9. A chunky pair of sneakers that (believe it or not) are all the rage right now.

    Urban Outfitters

    You heard me correctly — big, chunky sneakers are currently super on-trend! This is a huge win for those of us who are really tired of trekking around in heels that kill our feet by the end of the day. You'd better believe I'm investing a basic, all-white pair of these sneaks.

    Promising review: "I bought these ages ago and have been wearing them nonstop! They are so comfy, I have worn mine all day and all night without feeling it afterwards. They also clean super well with a damp cloth (because let’s face it, white shoes get dirty). Mine are still looking as good as new. Sizing is the exact same as my other shoes. 100% recommend." —sophiecol

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $65 (available in sizes 5-10).

    10. A pair of platform clogs, so you can stand tall without suffering from the discomfort of regular heels.

    Free People

    Speaking as someone who pretty much detests heels (THEY JUST HURT A LOT, OK?), I cannot express how much I love shoes with a chunky heel. I'm pretty short, so on occasions when I want to benefit from a bit of extra height, I don't want to sacrifice being comfortable. These clogs will totally work for leveraging any look — literally.

    Get them from Free People for $178 (available in Euro sizes 36-41, or 5-9.5, and in three colors).

    11. A pretty pair of stilettos that feature a bow so elegant you won't be able to keep yourself from smiling when you strap them on.


    Even I would suffer through the pain of wearing stilettos if they happened to be this pair. They are simply so gorgeous you will look like a superstar strutting your stuff in these pumps.

    Promising review: "OH MY!! These shoes killed it!! Too many compliments and I am not over exaggerating at all!! These shoes were a hit at my office Christmas party. I am so glad I purchased them. They are adorable. I will definitely be working these into my wardrobe. I plan to rock them with a pair of skinny jeans ASAP!! They were comfortable to walk in/stand for three hours, I'm not sure about much longer lol." —Kenyetta Robinson

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 4-10 and in five colors).

    12. A pair of chunky over-the-knee boots, so you can dress exactly like Ariana Grande while listening to "Thank U, Next" on repeat for the rest of your life., Amazon

    Steal Ariana's look with minimal effort — all you have to do is pair these fantastic boots with an oversized sweatshirt and you're good to go! Featuring a chunky heel and an anti-slip sole, you'll be ready to dance your heart out the next time our girl's song comes on at the bar (aka every hour on the hour, basically).

    Promising review: "I thought I was taking a big gamble on these boots at such a low price; I was afraid they might look cheap. Boy was I wrong! Love these boots, they are fabulous! Great quality and very comfortable. My boyfriend insisted I get a second color. Compliments all over the place the first day I wore them. You can sass them up with a short skirt, but I've also worn them to work with a longer skirt — they look great either way. I'm so glad I took the chance. They are a steal. Highly recommend!" —Samantha M.

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in 15 colors).

    13. A pair of loafers for a casual but chic addition to your ever-growing shoe collection.


    One look at these gold loafers and I was in love. There are few things as satisfying as a shoe that looks as cool as they are comfortable — and this stylish pair checks both of those boxes.

    Promising review: "I own 200 pairs of shoes and Im not exaggerating when I say these are BY FAR the most comfortable. The leathers buttery soft, gold color is so fun, but I also bought brown. These cradle your feet and feel like walking on clouds. Great investment, my new everyday shoe, fashionable. Highly recommend!" —SAStef

    Get them from Anthropologie for $130 (available in sizes 6-11 and in four colors).

    14. A pair of stiletto booties that you won't mind getting wet because they're made of faux suede., Amazon

    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 to be 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 $12.26+ (available in size 5.5-10, styles vary in availability depending on size).

    15. A pair of durable leather booties, so you can look fashionable without breaking an ankle., Amazon

    I have these boots in both black and toffee — I'm actually obsessed. They are my favorite shoes right now because I can wear them during through both the fall, winter, and early spring. They look fantastic with jeans and adorable with tights. They have just enough heel to create the look of heeled booties without the discomfort of walking around in heels. Basically, they're amazing and everyone should buy them. Kthanks.

    Get them from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 32 styles).

    16. A pair of classic ballet flats that you can easily store in your desk drawer at work for a quick change on wet-weather days.,

    Did you wear snow boots to trudge through the snow on your way to work? Or maybe you clunked along in rain boots to class? These ballet flats are fantastic for stowing in your bag or desk, so you can switch into more appropriate footwear in a snap!

    Promising review: "These shoes are absolutely adorable! I got my usual size 6 and they fit perfectly. The slight cushion at the bottom makes them feel comfortable. These shoes are very feminine and everything I could ask for in a flat shoe. Very happy with this purchase. While the weather is getting a little too cold to wear them, I can’t wait until spring/summer to rock them with dresses and shorts." —Melanie_and_David

    Get them from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 23 styles).

    17. A pair of trendy Nike sneakers, so you can look FIRE while getting your steps in at the gym.

    Nordstrom Rack

    Everything is coming up roses these days — rose gold that is. This fresh pair of Nikes features a check mark of the trendy color and is sure to upgrade your workout style. I'll definitely be bookmarking these for my next sneaker purchase (aka as soon as my next paycheck hits my bank account).

    Get them from Nordstrom Rack for $49.97 (available in sizes 5.5-12 and in eight styles).

    18. A pair of sherpa slides, because everyone should have a pair of semi-ridiculous sandals to wear on vacation.


    I personally have never understood the appeal of slides...until I saw these. They're a freakin' sandal with a fuzzy sherpa accent — why WOULDN'T you want these in your life?! You and your BFF should agree to gift each other a pair so you can make use of both colors.

    Get them from Puma for $35 (available in sizes 5.5-10.5 and in black and white).

    19. A pair of strappy pumps that will make you say "dayyyyum girl!" when you look in the mirror.


    Seriously, though, these shoes are badass! The studded ones transform these from a regular old pair of heels into something way more spectacular. Pairing these pumps with a LBD will definitely take the look to a whole other level.

    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. Definitely the most comfortable heels I've ever worn." —Emily Czajowski

    Get them from Amazon for $18.68+ (available in sizes 6-10 and in 18 styles).

    20. A traditional pair of Ugg boots, because I don't care what you say, they are truly the MOST COMFORTABLE SHOES OF ALL TIME.


    It's a true fact and I will stand by it (as will the nearly 6,000 Nordstrom customers who gave this shoe a five-star rating). I've been wearing Uggs since sixth grade (wow, when did I get so old?) and I don't plan to stop anytime soon. There is no better boot to easily jump into to run errands on the weekend or to keep you cozy during a movie night with friends. They are the epitome of comfort and if you haven't already gotten on board, what are you waiting for?

    Promising review: "These boots fit perfectly and came on time. I would truly recommend Uggs to anyone! They are true to size and are very comfortable. This is my fourth pair and I will be ordering more soon. I’m very happy with this product." —Clarittyy

    Get them from Nordstrom for $159.95 (available in sizes 5-12 and in 12 colors).

    21. A casual slip-on sneaker that is both fashionable and comfortable, so even the pickiest of shoe shoppers will give it a thumbs-up.


    Everyone's outfit can benefit from a touch of fringe — including yours! This classic sneaker has been given an upgrade thanks to the added tassel. You'll love slipping into these stylish sneaks on the reg.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love these shoes! Very stylish yet comfortable. The black leather is very nice-looking and does not look cheap at all! In the box they also include a dust bag for when the shoes aren't in use! Would love to see these come out in other colors!" —Dru

    Get them from Amazon for $31.60 (available in sizes 6-10 in black and white and size 6 in cheetah).

    22. A pair of memory-foam slippers, so you can pad around your house like antisocial royalty., Amazon

    If you're a homebody like myself, slippers totally count as shoes. And who wouldn't want a pair of cozy ones like these that mold to your feet? With a wool-like fleece lining and a durable anti-skid sole, these slippers are pretty much essential for any homebody. Sign me uuuuup.

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical about these because I'm not a big slipper person — I prefer socks, but my new apartment floor is just too cold for socks alone. I shouldn't have worried, these are SO warm and very comfortable. I have size 9.5 feet, so these were a little bit small at first because the inner part hadn't been worn in yet. I think it will be fine as I continue to wear them. And I do wear them with socks. Overall I love these and I'm really glad I purchased!" —S. Raju

    Get them from Amazon for $19.90+ (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

    23. A splurgeworthy pair of red cowboy boots that will have you bragging about how well you "pull them off" just like Ted Mosby does in How I Met Your Mother.

    Urban Outfitters

    Looking for a pair of sassy boots to spice up your outfits? Well, here they are! Made of red leather, these shoes are certain to make you say "yee-haw!" each time you slip them on.

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $210 (available in sizes 6-11).

    24. A pair of tall, faux fur-lined combat boots, perfect for sloshing around in the rain or snow while looking cooler than ever. Oh, and they have a hidden pocket to hold all your necessities!,

    These sick knee-high boots are essential for your winter collection. They are lined with fur and lace up all the way — they're simply badass and I need them NOW.

    Promising review: "I love these boots. Buying a new brand of shoes online is always tricky since you don't know how they'll fit, especially if you have somewhat wide feet like me. These boots fit perfectly! I went with my normal size, and can easily get them on and off while wearing regular crew socks. I like the zipper on the side — you don't have to unlace and lace them up again. The faux fur lining is nice and soft, but not too thick. The boots aren't big and bulky, which is sometimes the case with combat-style boots. They are sleek and would look great with leggings, jeans, or skirts." —Kara L Schroeder

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

    25. A pair of leopard-print stiletto booties that you'll want in your closet right meow.

    Forever 21

    These shoes are HOT. If you want to amp up your outfit's sex appeal, there's nothing like a pair of leopard-print stiletto booties to do the trick — just imagine pairing them with a leather skirt or black skinny jeans.

    Get them from Forever 21 for $42 (available in sizes 5.5-10).

    26. A pair of rhinestone mules, so you can bling in the new year from head to toe.

    Free People

    How fantastic are these slip-ons? Whether you're looking for the perfect accent to your NYE ~lewk~ or you just want to add some sparkle to your daily life, these shoes are a must-have.

    Get them from Free People for $120 (available in Euro sizes 36-41, or 5.5-8.5, and in black, silver, and pewter).

    27. A pair of vintage-style pumps that will transport you back in time to another (possibly more fashionable) era., Amazon

    Need shoes to go with a cool dress you found while thrifting? These are the answer to your fashion prayers! Made of patent leather and featuring a classic T-strap, you won't be able to resist dancing around in shoes like this.

    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

    Get them from Amazon for $31.50+ (available in sizes 4.5-10.5 and in four colors).

    28. A pair of super-comfy sneakers, so when you're running late (as per usual) you'll have a go-to shoe you can leave by the front door.


    Ahem, I may or may not be guilty of doing exactly this. I love how the blush color on this basic sneaker takes it from a drab, boring shoe and makes it fabulous. They're lightweight and work perfectly for both working out at the gym and or running errands.

    Promising review: "Absolute best shoes I have ever bought. SO COMFY, PEOPLE! I get so many compliments on them. I’ve also bought a few pair for gifts and the receivers LOVE them! All of mine have arrived in perfect condition, no frayed laces or anything. Fit is true to size. I have a wide foot and ankle and can easily pull them on." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.51+ (available in sizes 6-10 and in four colors).

    29. And a shearling loafer mule that will have you reciting "Gucci gang Gucci gang Gucci gang" as you catwalk to the subway.


    If you're down to really treat yourself to a new pair of shoes, I think it's time to go big or go home. These loafers scream "I'M RICH, BITCH" in the best way possible. They're a fantastic, fuzzy creation and IMHO they're worth every single penny.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $995 (available in sizes 4-12 and in two colors).

    You, appreciating your fabulous new shoes:
