    BuzzFeed writer Heather Braga loves these boots:

    "I recently got these Ugg minis and have been wearing them as my 'work shoes' now that I WFH full time. They're the perfect mix between a slipper and an actual shoe, so I can continue to wear my comfiest clothes to 'the office' (my kitchen table) but also feel like I've somewhat transitioned into work mode for the day. They're super soft, as all Uggs are, and honestly just make me happy! They are true-to-size so no worries about sizing up or down."

    Promising review: "These are the first pair of Uggs I have ever purchased, and they do not disappoint! I am short (5'0") so the taller classic Uggs have always felt a little awkward or bulky for me. The ultra mini is just what I've been looking for, and I've been wearing them daily (even though it's still hot out). I'm considering a second purchase! Definitely worth every penny!" —Lexi T.

    Get them from Zappos for $139.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and 14 colors).

    3. Trendy Vince Camuto peep toe booties to warn everyone around you that your are royalty and expect to be treated as such. Its cute double-buckle closure just screams "unique!"

    Promising review: "This versatile shoe is a perfect transition shoe from season to season, especially in California. They'll go great with jeans and short/maxi skirts alike. Cute little heel, stylish shape, very clean, and classic. I wore the black pair to a commencement exercise lasting three hours and felt no pain." —East2dtla99

    Get it from DSW for $89.98+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in two colors).

    4. Knit boots that quite literally fit like a glove and will make you feel as chic as you look! They're also made of renewed plastic bottles (nine bottles per pair!).

    Promising review: "These boots are really comfortable; they have enough stretch to fit across the bridge of my foot but also conform to the foot and look great. Because of this stretch, they are also super easy to put on (even when standing up). Since they are so light in color, I was a bit concerned about staining, but I got a small black mark on one of them and it came straight off with just soap and water." —Lozz

    Get them from Everlane for $130 (available in sizes 5–11 and three colors).

    5. A pair of oh-so-classic Dr. Martens Chelsea boots because not only are they stylish but they are very much built to last. Get ready to kick down doors and take over the world in these!

    Promising review: "These boots are great! The ankle is wide enough that they slip on and off easily but are not too bulky. Super waterproof! These are great if you have a dog or kids and find yourself stomping around wet grass and puddles often. The material is a little lighter than most rain boots so my feet aren’t sweating after walking my dog in a warmer rainy day (but with fuzzy socks they’re plenty warm for cooler mornings)!" —Alys Lou

    Promising review: "Buy. These. Boots. STOP YOUR THIGH-HIGH BOOT SEARCH HERE! I spent days and days searching the internet for TRULY thigh-high boots. I was looking for something that came a few inches OVER the knee. These boots are true to size and the measurements provided are accurate. These boots are perfectly snug and don’t fall down...there is even a sort of elastic under the knee (which was NOT uncomfortable, to my pleasant surprise) to keep them fit and over thighs. The heal is a perfect’s not a stiletto and it’s also not too chunky. To top it off, any other boots that match these perfect measurements and quality are AT LEAST twice the price. Please trust me, I did the research for you already. BUY THE BOOTS!" —Catherine McGrath
