    You'll be happy to know that several reviewers shared how communicative and helpful the seller was with concerns about sizing and shipping! The seller even throws in a faux rose as a sweet "thank you" for purchasing. We stan good customer service!

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised when I received these shoes and the packaging is fabulous! From the color and quality of the box to the rose and pads included on the inside, well, I never have received anything like it... I have purchased three pairs of shoes so far and I love each one. It was surely money well spent." —Lrudrow

    Get them from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes 5-13 and 28 colors/prints).

    4. Lace-up wedge booties that over 1,400 reviewers have obsessed over and given five-star reviews. These are the shoes you're going to want to slip into when you want to be warm, polished, and dressed up but not ~too~ dressed up, ya' know?!,

    5. Casual cutout booties you'll probably want to wear every single day this fall because looking good without effort + feeling comfy is a BIG MOOD.

    a reviewer with the boot on their lap. the boot is a beige color with a split ankle and perforated cutouts on the side. it has a slight heel.

    Promising review: "So I've been wearing these booties now for three months on an almost daily basis. I must say, they are holding up extremely well. I have so-called 'comfort' shoes in my closet that I can't wear because they cause blisters. On the other hand, these booties are fantastically comfortable! They slip on and off quite easily, even with socks, and I can wear them all day and night, and my feet don't hurt at the end of the day. I thought they were cheap shoes because of the price but they have proven to be an excellent purchase. I am going to order another pair. This pair I have still looks like new, despite frequent wear over three months. I never heard of this company before these shoes, but I'll be ordering from them again!" —Helen Smith

    Get them from Amazon for $14.98+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 20 styles).

    6. Thigh-high boots that are so sexy, you might just make a pass at yourself in these gorgeous things. The heel is only 3.5 inches which means — yasss — you get the thigh-high looks without the high-heel pain. Whew! I ain't judgin' if you bought these things before reaching this sentence. Your shoe collection deserves this glow-up!,

    Bonussss: Several reviewers noted that these boots have jussst enough stretch but that they actually do stay up without sagging on long, skinny legs. Can you say game-changer?!

    Promising review: "I have finally found my golden thigh-high boots!!! I have searched far and wide for thigh-highs that actually stay up. These babies do not move the slightest and they aren’t skintight either (I have about average size thighs). The heel is a great height for tall girls like me — a little over three inches for my size 10. The pointed look makes it super sexy and the quality is great. Best of all, I’ve worn these suckers all night long, for six or more hours and my feet feel great! No pain what so ever. I’m buying all the colors now." —Lexie

    Get them from Amazon for $42.98+ (available in sizes 5-10.5 and 18 styles).

    7. Bowknot ballet flats with a faux suede finish that'll match nearly everything in your fall wardrobe — especially if you treat yourself to every color in the lineup. Also, these flats were made for walkin' thanks to a flexible rubber outsole, a cushioned footbed, and ultra-soft lining.

    FYI: Several reviewers noted that if you wear a half-size, then you may want to order one size up for the comfiest fit.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these shoes! I have pretty narrow feet and they fit me perfectly. I added really thin insoles for a little extra shock absorption since I’m on my feet most of the day. Still, I didn’t find these shoes uncomfortable without them. I will buy in more colors." —Jena

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 5.5 to 9.5; four colors and two bowknot styles).

    8. Riding combat ankle boots that'll help you pull off the moto chic look with ease while also delivering just a hinnnnt of equestrian-inspired fun. Ride horses. Ride bikes. Ride the Lyft to a bar. No matter where you go you're going to look BOMB in these cool boots., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love, love these boots! They are truly a must buy. The color, detail, and size are great. The inside of the boot is lined with fur material. They are very, very comfortable to wear all day. I tested these boots in the snow and in the rain and they passed. They kept my feet warm and dry. I ordered a size nine. I also ordered these boots in brown. The same holds true for them as well. Happy shopping." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and 6 styles).

    9. Corduroy slip-on sneakers that'll honestly look way too good with a sweater and a pair of corduroy leggings. And there you are. One of your cool-to-look-at fall outfits is already corduroy-nated!

    13. Lil' white ankle boots that'll replace your go-to black ones whenever you want to lighten up the mood of your outfit.,

    Heads up, several reviewers noted that these boots are narrow so you may want to go up a half-size for the best fit.

    Promising review: "I was in need of a new pair of casual, low-heeled boots and these are perfect! I was concerned that they might be to narrow for my wide foot but they fit great! I have been wearing them to work for the past couple of days and my feet feel great. No breaking in needed. They are very comfortable and feel very sturdy with the nice block heel. The size 9 would have fit my foot length but I think would have been tight in the width. I'm very happy with these size 9.5 boots!" —Vegas

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 5-11).

    14. Black tapestry creepers to literally elevate your feet ~and~ your style with some quirky flair if that's your jam.

    platform shoes with a patent leather toe and a floral, jacquard-style fabric all around the ankle. They have black laces.

    Promising review: "I got these shoes around a year ago and man, do I love them. Personally, I have a thing for floral couch-esque material things so these immediately caught my eye. I wanted some platform shoes and after shopping around, I found these beauties for such a decent price point (in comparison to other brands) and had to get them. Shipping took a lil' bit but I can't remember if that was just due to not having Prime at the time. Either way, it was totally worth the wait. They're SO comfortable that I can wear them for a whole day with zero complaints, which is awesome. The inside is fur-lined too so your heel will never get rubbed raw. Along with all of that, they're also super stable... I even went tromping in some woods with sticks all over the place and *never* felt like I was going to twist my ankle. They've also held up super well. Due to wearing them pretty often I did have to use a lil' super glue where the sole started to detach a little from the shoe itself but that's no biggie, I've had to do that to a lot of shoes at some point anyway. The next time I have a bit of money to spend, I plan on returning to this brand for another pair of platforms. 100%. So ultimately, if you're thinking about getting these, then do it. They look just like the pictures and you'll get so many compliments on them." —Jupiter

    Get them from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in sizes 5–10).

    15. Western ankle boots so you can keep the rodeo-inspired fun going from summer's cowgirl shoe trend. These boots are made of 100% vegan leather and have a 2-1/2-inch heel that'll give you some lift without hurting your feet.

    three cowboy boots that come up just above the ankle but just below the calves. They ahv a pointed toe and embroider on the side. The three boots are brown, deep brown, and red.

    Promising review: "Love these boots! Got them in red and wore them out all night dancing. My feet weren't hurting at all! And they look really cute!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-9).

    16. A pair of go-with-everything flats to wear with... well... any and everything in your fall wardrobe.


    Get them from ModCloth for $42 (available in four styles and sizes 6-11including wide options).

    17. Pointed-toe heels with a bow tie and cutouts along the ankles that look good year-round but will look especially pretty and date night–worthy with your layered looks this fall.


    Promising review: "Absolutely gorgeous! These are comfortable as well. I wear a size 9 but ordered a size 8 due to other reviews regarding sizing and they fit perfectly. I wore these to a holiday party and received so many compliments." —Teresa

    Get them from Amazon for $25.98+ (available in sizes 5-11 and eight colors).

    18. Glittery sneakers to wear when you're feeling sparkly and dressy but don't wanna step out in heels or flats. They're as eye-catching as embellished pumps and will pair just as beautifully with oversized sweaters, skirts, and other party-perfect attire.

    reviewer wearing the sneaker which has a white sole, gold glitter all over it, and sparkly gold laces

    Promising review: "I am absolutely THRILLED with the quality of these shoes. Giving that I bought a pair of sparkly tennis shoes, I fully expected them to be of lower quality. I WAS WRONG. There is a full, opaque layer of sparkles coating the entire shoe with no see-through parts! The gold fabric on the shoe is very shiny and well made. All stitching looks great and the sparkles don't feel scratchy like I would have expected. I also expected these shoes to be anything but comfortable; they're sparkly shoes after all. I am happily surprised by just how comfortable they are. The shoes are a bit wider than normal shoes but I actually like that aspect because I have wider feet. The only other possible downside would be that the bottoms of the shoes are made of a foam-like material, which isn’t as hard as that of normal tennis shoes. However, I wasn’t planning to use these for any kind of exercise so I don’t mind. If you’re looking for a cute pair of fashion shoes that don’t need to hold up for running, these are a WONDERFUL pair!" —Lampshadia

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 12 colors).

    19. Tweed pointed-toe flats that'll look like you pulled 'em straight from the racks of an OG French fashion designer even though you really scored 'em in the e-racks of Amazon. Scorrrre!,

    Heads up: If you have a wider foot, then you may want to order a size up according to reviewers!

    Promising review: "So I've been looking for a pair of black flats to wear to work and I've been obsessed with pointed toes lately. I thought these were adorable when I saw them, and in-person they're even cuter. They have a tiny bit of sparkle that makes them cute but still professional. I did order up a little bit. I usually wear between a 7 and an 8 and ordered the 8. They fit perfectly although I don't have wide feet and I saw that was a common problem in the reviews. They're really comfortable straight away and the front comes up enough that you don't have any 'toe cleavage.' I'm really happy with them and might order another color too!" —Rebecca Gaston

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four styles and two colors).

    20. Blowfish Rabbit booties with a subtle draped and buttoned flap design that'll ~blow~ any casual outfit out of the water with their soft look.

    gray suede ankle boot with a sneaker-like sole and round toe. it has buttons traveling up one side.

    Promising review: "These boots are excellent. They are not a typical boot in a typical way but they do seem like they will be warm and comfortable. The buttons all work to unfold for different looks but there is also a side zipper... The body of the boot is like a Mary Jane shape with the flap on top. These are unique and incredibly comfortable." —Adamelio

    Get them from Amazon for $39 (available in sizes 6-9 and two colors).

    21. Faux shearling ankle boots to give off the exact cozy vibes that autumn calls for! The trim around the ankle is designed with double-layered fleece and wool-like material that'll look cute and prevent the cold from seizing your ankles.

    Get them from Boohoo for $16.80 (originally $28; available in sizes 5-10).

    23. Pointed-toe Oxford flats that'll look so dainty and dressy no matter where you wear them. You'll definitely need to dapper up in these with a blazer for at least one OOTD., Amazon

    Promising review: "I have never worn pointed shoes before so I almost returned these because they were new to me and I felt weird with them on at first. But I'm glad I gave them a chance because they are so cute and comfortable! They fit perfectly. I feel no pain after wearing them days in a row. I'm definitely buying more Ollio Oxfords. I wear sheer lace socks with them and they look great." —Jacqueline

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes 6-10, four colors, and two styles).

    24. Men's Sanuk slip-ons so you can keep your feet embedded in an incredibly warm covering. But that ain't all!

    reviewer's feet wearing the shoes in gray. they have a loafer style so they are flat and low-top but cover the foot entirely.

    Promising review: "As someone who is resistant to the preppy aesthetic that is in vogue again, it is difficult to find something that works well with shorts for me. Sanuks fit the bill. These are comfortable without socks and unyielding to stinkiness, these shoes work for a casual, everyday shoe that is a necessity in the perpetual heat of Austin." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in men's sizes 6–18 and 11 styles).

    25. Mid-calf faux suede boots to wear up when you want a taller boot style and down when you want to show off the shearling texture and more of an ankle boot style. It has an anti-skid rubber sole, a side zipper closure, and a simple 1.3-inch heel., Amazon

    Promising review: "Being a ‘hard to please’ shoe shopper, I have to say these boots are pretty great! I have ‘difficult to fit’ feet with narrow feet and wide calves, along with Morton’s neuroma‘s (inflamed nerve endings) in the balls of both feet, AND cold feet most all the time — BUT these are some of the most comfortable and warm boots I’ve ever worn and they look great!!! A little larger around my calves than I’d like, but still good. Normally, I have to add inserts for comfort in most of my footwear but NOT with these!! For the price, comfort, and fit, I can’t say enough good things!!! I normally wear a size nine but I bought a size 9.5 and they fit perfectly. The soles grip well. I love the heel, zipper style, and that you can turn the tops down to sport a different look. As to how they will hold up down the road, yet to be known." —Debra S.

    Get them from Amazon for $28.19+ (available in sizes 5-11 and five colors).

    26. Knee-high English-style boots for when you want to give the sleek, refined equestrian look.

    28. Faux fur slippers for anyone who's been waiting to give their feet that warm, fuzzy fall feeling again. Wearing these around the house will def feel like one sweet bear hug for your feet.


    Several reviewers noted that these babies realllllly hug the feet so you may want to double-check sizing and go up a half-size.

    Promising review: "These are the cutest and comfiest slippers I have ever worn. I am a 5.5 so I ordered a 6 and they are the perfect size. The inside is so warm. Definitely recommend and want to order another pair for outside wear." —JFeldman1999

    Get them from Nordstrom for $44.95 (available in three colors and sizes 5-10).

    Promising review: "Do you know how difficult it is to find stretchy shoes?!?! I won't get into detail but I have a pretty annoying issue of daily swelling in my feet and ankles. If you walked a day in my 'shoes,' then you'd be raving about these shoes, too. These shoes do not constrict my feet and they also allow them to breathe. I just can't say enough good things. Also, the customer service I received from Stephie was phenomenal!" —Nicki S.
