    1. Platform wedge sneakers that'll give you the elevation of heels and the street style edge of sneakers. These casual wedges will match so easily with your different jeans, jackets, and sweaters.


    Promising review: "I am five feet tall and very active and I love wearing shoes that add a bit of height without tiring me out through the day. I bought these because I've never had sneaker wedges and I'm so glad I did. They remind me a lot of TOMS wedges which can easily be worn all day, even with a lot of walking. I wear them to work which I generally have to walk a bit for and my feet were not hurting or tired at all at the end of the day. They're very easy to put on since they have a zipper closure instead of laces (which is very convenient). They also don't scratch the back of my Achilles tendon as some booties tend to. It looks like a great quality product with good materials that don't bend and wrinkle after the first time you wear it. Overall, it is a great product and I'm hoping to try out the other color and styles as well." —Diana P.

    Btw, if you wear half-sizes, reviewers noted that it's best to order one size up.

    Promising review: "I ordered these mules on a whim and I wish I could wear them every day! They fit true to size. I love the design and the pointed toe and they perked up my outfit! All I need is Paris and a glass of wine!" —Sadie

    Promising review: "These are so comfortable and I get so many compliments! I'm a preschool teacher and have been wearing them to run around with the kids and they've been great — even on my mulch-filled playground. It feels like I'm wearing sneakers." —Natalie Gonzalez

    5. Pointed toe patent leather flats with plenty of colors to switch in and out of and keep your fall shoe switch-up game on ~point~. Pssst... These are also a proper dupe for the Jimmy Choo Gala Flats that can cost anywhere from $500-$1000+!


    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

    6. Thigh-high boots that are so friggin' 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 $45.68+ (available in sizes 5-10.5 and 18 styles).

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "These are the best boots I ever owned. They're a must-have!!! They fit perfectly. Finally, a wide leg boot to fit my calf. I wear a 7 and bought a 7." —Philomena G.

    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 $20.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and 11 styles).

    10. Buckled loafers with green and red details to give Gucci looks without spending that Gucci price. The shoes have cushioned leather insoles and a super low square heel to keep your feet feeling as good as they look.


    Promising review: "To be honest, I was VERY concerned about the sizing. I wear a size 10 normally but when it comes to flats (pointed toe flats are the only flats I wear FYI), I can wear a 10, 10.5, or even an 11. So I ordered the biggest size they had —10.5 — to be on the safe side. Can I just tell you about the happy, happy, joy, joy I felt when I slid my right foot (because it's bigger than my left — yeah I don't get that either) into the shoe with ease?! These shoes fit like they were made for me. They're totally comfortable since they're a 'soft' shoe. Totally flexible. I live in a city where you are always walking and I had no problems. I'm wearing them with black denim pants but can wear them with white or blue jeans. The shoes took two weeks for delivery but were so well worth the wait! Get them. You'll love them." —N.G. Benjamin

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-10.5 and three colors).

    11. 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.

    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 $19.26+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 20 styles).

    12. 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 $15.99+ (available in sizes 5.5 to 9.5; four colors and two bowknot styles).

    13. 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!

    Promising review: "These are the BEST shoes on the market. I wear an 8.5 and they are perfect. The patterns are adorable and these are very attractive shoes. I have eight pairs so far." —Janis Dunavant

    Get them from Amazon for $24.97+ (available in 16 styles).

    14. Anklet booties that have the straps of popular ballet flats and a low block heel to channel the feel of low ankle boots.

They'll be easy to dress up and down with knit dresses, jeans, cropped slacks, and whatever else you've got in your fall style arsenal.


    Promising review: "These boots are so fun! I love the ankle strap since it makes them more fancy and stable. They fit as expected. I wear an 8.5 so I ordered a 9 and they fit fine. They're really well-made and comfy." —Stephanie Clinch

    Get them from Amazon for $24.98+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 10 styles).

    16. Pointed-toe heels with a bowtie 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 $29.98+ (available in sizes 5-11 and eight colors).

    17. Black tapestry creepers to literally elevate your feet ~and~ your style with some goth-y flair.


    Promising review: "I couldn't be more pleased. These are THE MOST COMFORTABLE CREEPERS YOU WILL EVER WEAR. If you want to wear socks with these, then definitely order a half or a full-size up. I have narrow feet but there is room for a wider foot. These are gorgeous and gothy." —Sophie

    Get them from Amazon for $49.98+ (available in sizes 5–10).

    18. 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).

    19. 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 two and a half-inch heel that'll give you some lift without hurting your feet.

    Get them from Amazon for $26.59+ (available in sizes 5.5-9).

    Promising review: "I really love these boots. I grabbed them because of the decent price and I’m super impressed with the quality. They are quite comfortable and make for a great fall look. " —Autumn Echo

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes 5.5.-11 and three colors).

    Get them from Zappos for $48.30 (available in sizes 6-10 and five colors).

    22. Pom pom mule flats with a tiny golden heel for a metallic fancy factor and a velvet or satin finish. You'll be good wearing these to work since they have a polished look to them but they're more than festive enough to steal the show at a party.


    Lots of reviewers who have wider feet noted that they ordered one size up for the best fit since these have a pointy toe!

    Promising review: "These flats are just as described and pictured. I normally wear a size 8. I requested sizing suggestions from other purchasers (thank you peeps!!!) and ordered an eight. It fits perfectly! These are really cute shoes and comfortable to wear. I will be buying more!!!!" —Deborah

    Get them from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and five colors).

    23. Festive glittery sneakers to wear to holiday parties when you're just really not feeling 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.

    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 with 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 $19.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 12 colors).

    24. 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." —


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

    25. Strappy fuzzy heels because your shoulders aren't the only thing you'll be draping in faux fur this fall. Ow!

    Pretty Little Thing

    Get them from Pretty Little Thing for $50 (available in sizes 5-10 and three colors).

    26. 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: "These boots are great for fall and winter! Now that it has started snowing, these boots are really helpful and keep my feet and lower calves warm. They're lightweight and comfortable. The zippers are nice and strong and the furry stuff helps to keep your feet and legs warm even with wind chills. The grip on these boots is also really good and prevents you from slipping." —Shithil Bhat

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and five colors).

    27. 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.


    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).

    28. J.Crew Lodge Moccasins In calf hair to encase your feet in super warm and comfy footwear with a shearling upper and fuzzy faux-shearling lining.
