    1. A faux leather glitter boot so you can ~shine~ every time you walk into a room.,

    Promising review: “Absolutely LOVE these boots! The sparkles don’t fall off at all and they are SO comfy for heels. The heels have a sole type on the bottom that offers some cushion when you walk and doesn’t make as loud of a noise. Plus they’re a perfect fit. I ordered the size shoe that I usually wear and they fit perfect with a normal pair of socks. If you plan on wearing them a lot with thicker socks, I would get a size up. Overall SO CUTE and a great quality. Highly recommend!" —Shyanne Hall

    Get them from Amazon for $30.75+ (available in sizes 5.5-12 and three colors).

    Promising review: "Love these shoes! I bought them while I was pregnant with swollen feet and they were fantastic and stretched with my what seemed to be ever expanding feet.

I love the white and how crisp they look brand new and I feel like they still look cute even once they get worn and a little dirty!" —Amazon Customer

These are warm just like the classic Ugg. I bought these since I live in Indiana and have worn Uggs for years for the warmth. I wear them without socks just like with my other Uggs, my feet stay nice and warm. They look great with skinnies and leggings. I have already ordered a black pair I like them so much." —Christine

There is a zipper on the back of the shoe, so you don't have to unbuckle them every time you take them off or put them on.

    25. A pair of mid-calf combat boots with a handy pocket to store your credit card and license when you don't feel like carrying a purse around.,

    Promising review: "My daughter absolutely loves these boots I bought her. I was skeptical at first because I've got some pretty poor quality boots before ordering online. Also sometimes boots don't fit her muscular calves. These boots are winners, they look great really trendy and they fit her calves with no problem. The boots are adjustable so they can be easily tightened or loosened to fit. The craftsmanship is pretty good — all stitching is in tact, no loose threads, and zipper is of a heavy duty commercial type. The sole is at least 1/2 inch thick so that gives you some miles to put on them. My daughter did get a little mud on them and they were easily wiped cleaned with a baby wipe. These are cute boots that are more suitable for fall, but with thick socks might work well on a milder winter day. Very happy with this product and plan to buy an additional pair in a different color for a Christmas gift." —laurie childers

    Get them from Amazon for $24.80+ (available in sizes 5-13 and 25 colors and prints).

    27. Block-heeled oxfords for a Clueless-worthy preppy look, ideal for fall semester.,

    Promising review: "Fits as expected with lots of room at the toes. Don’t believe for one second these aren’t comfy. I’m a hairdresser, I walk and stand over eight hours a day. These are comfortable enough that at the end of my work day I have zero discomfort or pain. I don’t typically ever wear a shoe with a heel so the facts that these cause no pain, have a heel, and I stand all day are awesome. Would recommend." —Ruelle

    Get them on Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 4.5-10.5 and three colors).
