    These women's and men's boots are the GREATEST.


    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page.


    1. Free People ankle booties with a block heel to carry you through anything life brings your way.

    Promising Review: "Arghhh! These are to die for and tremendously comfortable for such a stylish shoe. As for the sizing, I am a true 10.5, with feet on the narrow side and a flat arch. I ordered them in 41 and they feel like an 11 on me. However, because there are no half sizes, I am definitely going to keep them!" —Christina

    Price: $168 (available in four colors, sizes 36-41)

    2. Taos leather and suede boots featuring a removable footbed and cute ankle-strap detailing.

    Promising Review: "Beware! Do NOT put these in your cart. Do not have them sent to your home. If you do, kiss your money goodbye. They are fabulous! I bought them on a whim, and once I put them on, I never wanted to take them off. They are cool, adorable, and super comfortable. I fell in love. They are very, very dangerous to your wallet!" —Madtowngirl

    Price: $189 (available in eight colors, sizes 36-42)

    3. Leather-lined Minnetonka moccasins you can easily pull off thanks to their lace-up design.

    Promising Review: "I'm really happy with these little moccasins. They are so soft, comfortable, and wear like slippers. They definitely run a little large. I usually wear a 7.5-8, and and my feet are on the wide side. In narrow shoes, I usually go with an 8. So I figured I'd chance the larger size. They feel like an 8.5 on. But this leaves me room for thick socks. If you want a snug fit or plan to wear them in bare feet, going down half a size is probably a good idea." —Anonymous

    Price: $49.95 (available in two colors, sizes 5-11)

    4. Steve Madden boots with a lace-up front and lovely stitching.

    Promising Review: "I love my Steve Madden boots! I get a lot of compliments on them and wear them everywhere! They are an awesome way to boost my outfit, even on a lazy day. They are truly a must-have!" —Cecyzav

    Price: $79.95 (available in two colors, sizes 5-11)

    5. Faux-leather Rocket Dog boots ready to take over the open road — or maybe just the sidewalk.

    Promising Review: "I struggled to find boots that would fit my muscular calves until I decided to get these. I am so satisfied with these boots. They are so elegant and comfy. I get so many compliments on them!" —Anonymous

    Price: $59.95 (available in two colors, sizes 6-11)

    6. Teva combat boots too badass not to wear every day.

    Promising Review: "These are great boots! They are comfortable, cute, and practical. I was looking for something for our trip to Ireland, and these were perfect. They kept my feet warm and dry in the city and while hiking in the rain. However, I did decide to go up a size so that I could wear thicker socks." —TL

    Price: $140 (available in three colors, sizes 5-11)

    7. Funky Roper studded boots with flirty fringe detailing for a fierce night on the town.

    Promising Review: "These brilliant boots are so stylish and extremely comfortable. I walked a few miles in them on the first day with no wearing-in period. I can't wait for more colors to become available." —Bridget

    Price: $81.90 (available in two colors, sizes 5-11)

    8. Pretty Rocket Dog boots, which feature a ridiculously cool knotted strap no one else can compete with.

    Promising Review: “I’m beyond obsessed with these boots! I had foot surgery two years ago, so my foot is pretty wonky when it comes to non-tennis shoes. These do not bother my foot at all. I walked around in them for six hours straight while on vacation and had zero issues. I did end up getting a 10 instead of a 9, as the 9 was too tight. And because they were so comfy, I ended up buying a second pair. That way, when I have destroyed these from daily wear, I will have a nice fresh pair!” —Jess

    Price: $49.95 (available in sizes 6-11)

    9. Vibrant Laredo wingtip boots all your friends will want to borrow forever.

    Promising Review: "I wore them to a Christmas party and received so many compliments. I can wear them all day at work. I'm on my feet all day as a teacher. I think they run a little big. But if you put socks on, you'll be fine with your normal size. I just need to break them in a bit more. They are so pretty I almost didn't want to wear them!" —Maz

    Price: $159.99 (available in sizes 6-10)

    10. Sturdy FRYE boots, which feature a leather toe and shaft, buckle details, and cushioned insole.

    Promising Review: "These boots are amazing! I highly doubt I will ever wear another style of boots again. I have never spent this much on shoes before, but they are worth every penny. I have had them about two months now and love them more every day. They took some time to break in. But after about a week, they felt great. I usually wear an 8.5, but I got these in a 9. They were snug at first. But the leather stretches out as they break in. I have a wide foot and muscular calves, and they fit wonderfully. They look super cute with skinny jeans, dresses, skirts, and tights. I plan to rock them with summer dresses, too! If you are on the fence, buy them!" —Jessica Q

    Price: $209.99 (available in three colors, sizes 5.5-11)

    11. Toms booties combine a minimal silhouette and fierce stacked heel.

    Promising Review: "These are incredibly comfortable! I'm 5'2" and have always had larger calves. It's hard for me to find boots that actually zip up all the way. These do zip up and feel like they will stretch over time, too. I don't know what they did to the design, but these are the most comfortable heeled boots I've ever tried. You just have to try them on for yourself to see what everyone is talking about!" —B

    Price: $115.99 (available in five colors, sizes 5-12)

    12. Suede Dr. Scholl’s wedge booties with tassel laces and a cushioned footbed for maximum comfort.

    Promising Review: “These boots fit perfectly and are so comfortable. I have a hard time finding shoes that will fit because I have a wide toe box and narrow heel. These are THE ones. I'm going to get them in two different colors because I love them that much!” —Carrie

    Price: $70 (available in four colors, sizes 6-11, and widths M and W)

    13. Dr. Scholl’s wide-calf boots designed to have a cozier fit thanks to a full-length side zipper and gore on the top of the boot shaft.

    Promising Review: "I'm in love with these boots! They are incredibly comfortable. I have them in both black and the brown color. Those two pairs are seriously the only boots I have worn the majority of this winter. They are definitely worth the price." —Mariah

    Price: $95 (available in two colors, sizes 6-8.5)

    14. Dr. Martens platform booties, complete with a chunky heel that'll take your style to new heights.

    Promising Review: "I ordered these for an everyday work shoe! Like all Dr. Martens, they take a second to break in. And they definitely run a size bigger. I typically wear a 7, but I ordered a 6 in these. They are a little stiff at first. But BELIEVE ME, once they are worn a week or two straight, they will be the MOST comfy work shoes! I love the rubber soles and wedged arch. I can wear them with casual and more dressy outfits." —Brittany

    Price: $160 (available in two colors, sizes 5-11)

    15. Kristin Cavallari peep-toe boots topped off with a slouch ankle and all the attitude you’ll ever need.

    Promising Review: "These are super cute on the foot and fit true to size. I am generally a 7, and that is what I ordered. If I had gotten a 7.5, they would have been a little big. The peep hole is not too big, and the shoe is pretty soft!" —Anonymous

    Price: $97.99 (available in seven colors, sizes 5-11)

    16. Lightweight Dr. Martens boots that include a smooth leather upper and oil-, slip-, and abrasion-resistant outsole.

    Promising Review: "I just love these shoes! They're the same boots I wore to death in the '90s, but with better cushioning in the sole. I wore my old pair so long I must have forgotten about the killer pain of breaking them in. Don't do what I did in your excitement to get your feet in them. Take the time to slowly break them in. Your heels and lower calves will thank you!" —Anonymous

    Price: $140 (available in three colors, sizes 5-11)

    17. Velour Propet chelsea boots featuring a comfy round toe and simple styling you can wear with numerous looks.

    Promising Review: "I ordered these in wide. They are true to size and the perfect width. The outside suede is very soft and durable. And there is an adequate heel and sole, so your foot feels supported. The height is perfect for jeans or wearing with tights. This is a great walking boot." —Kay

    Price: $42.99 (available in three colors, sizes 6-11, and widths M, W, and X)

    18. Peep-toe Toms booties you can rock with tights or thick socks if you are willing to take some fashion risks

    Promising Review: "I love these booties! The style is so awesome. They look good with everything from leggings to dresses. I have a high instep, so I needed an 8.5 rather then an 8. All in all, these are a really a fun boot." —Karen K

    Price: $86.99 (available in six colors, sizes 5-12)

    19. Sakroots Chelsea boots that include leopard-print piping for slaying the rainiest of days in the concrete jungle.

    Promising Review: "I bought these for a vacation in Ireland where it ended up not raining the entire two weeks. But I wore these boots several times because they are just so darn cute! They were comfortable and very practical, with good traction for walking on uneven ground — or in areas with cows and sheep." —Anonymous

    Price: $44 (available in 12 colors, sizes 5-11)

    20. Steve Madden pull-on boots to give over-the-knee realness with every damn step.

    Promising Review: “I am six feet tall and have been searching for affordable over-the-knee boots for ages. These are the perfect height! They actually go over my knee, which is awesome. I worried the black might look too intense, so I ended up with the gray, which is gorgeous and looks expensive. I also recommend going a half-size smaller than your usual size. I am typically a 10, but the 9.5 fit best, even with thicker socks!" —Anonymous

    Price: $99.95 (available in two colors, sizes 5.5-10)

    21. Eric Michael ankle wedges with adjustable buckle straps for pure sexiness with any look.

    Promising Review: "I bought these shoes to go to Europe. After coming back, I can't stop wearing them. They are ultra comfortable and basically match all of my fall outfits. I got a lot of compliments on them, too. I highly recommend if you want to look stylish while covering a lot of ground." —Michiemo

    Price: $185 (available in four colors, sizes 4.5-12)


    22. Clarks desert boots that we promise will go with just about EVERY outfit.

    Promising Review: "This is my fourth pair of Clarks, and I have never been disappointed. The look and comfort are well worth the price. Clarks run big and stretch out, so consider ordering a full size down. I am an 11.5 to 12 in almost every other brand. But I wear a 10.5 in the desert boots and Wallabees." —Charlie

    Price: $130 (available in five colors, sizes 7-15)

    23. Florsheim Chelsea boots for a rocker moment that’ll have you looking ready for the stage.

    Promising Review: "These boots fit perfectly, look as rock 'n' roll as anything, and Zappos delivered them the day after I ordered them, upgrading me for free to next-day delivery." —Anonymous

    24. Waterproof Timberland boots with a cushioned ankle and rustproof eyelets.

    Promising Review: "This is my third pair of these boots, and they are awesome. I ordered them as an outdoor boot for Switzerland, where I live. I wear them while walking the dogs and hiking through the woods with the kids. They are still comfortable, waterproof, and awesome!" —Anonymous

    Price: $189.95 (available in three colors, sizes 7-18, widths M and W)

    25. Rugged Palladium boots that include a lace-up closure and sturdy rubber-toe bumper.

    Promising Review: "Victory finally! After four tries, I found this pair of kick-around boots. I ordered a half-size larger, and the fit is nearly perfect. They are very comfy and should be good for all day on my feet. I tried two other Palladium styles. But these are by far the most comfortable. I also tried the Timberland Pro 8" Valor Tactical, which are also very comfy if you want a darker color." —Keith

    Price: $84.99 (available in seven colors, sizes 3.5-14)

    26. Hand-stitched Clarks Wallabee boots to keep your feet feeling great and your outfits looking amazing.

    Promising Review: "I bought these shoes for my husband. He has always been a fan of Clarks shoes. He is also very rough on shoes. Clarks Wallabees wear well and are not easily torn up. They are high-quality shoes. And while the price is a bit high, the quality makes them well worth the spend. They run true to size, as well!" —Victorya

    Price: $150 (available in six colors, sizes 7-15)

    27. Dr. Martens fold-down boots you can guarantee will place your fashions above the rest.

    Price: $130 (available in two colors, sizes 7-14)

    Price: $139.95 (available in three colors, sizes 7-14, widths M and W)

    29. Under Armour boots designed to repel water while still keeping your feet cool and comfy.

    Promising Review: "As a helicopter EMS pilot, I put miles on my boots. I want comfortable, lightweight boots that breathe. This is my second pair of these boots. And they are by far the best I have owned. I've tried numerous name brands and styles, but these have met my needs and demands. They do run a half-size large. But I will be buying them again." —JD

    Price: $124.99 (available in sizes 8-14)

    30. Gorgeous, ankle-harness Durango boots perfect for your next outdoor adventure.

    Promising Review: "This being my first pair of Durangos, I was quite impressed with the quality and feel of the shoe. This boot can be worn all day and feel as comfortable as the next shoe. And with its distinct heel and toe, the boot is definitely a head-turner. I love the feel of the leather and that they have held up under intense conditions and still look brand new." —Jay M

    Price: $149.99 (available in sizes 7-13, widths M and W)

    31. Timberland boots with a lightweight midsole and abrasion-resistant leather upper, so they'll always look so good.

    Promising Review: "These are well worth the money. I bought these for my husband, who typically just walks in to any old store and chooses his boots by the price tag. He typically then complains about how much his feet hurt until he wears them out two months later. But the minute he put these on, he was in heaven. He works in construction and is on his feet all day. It's been a while now, and he's had no complaints. He loves them. He put on his old boots this weekend and commented that he couldn't believe he ever put up with being that uncomfortable. The new ones show no signs of wear at all after a month. They are a winner. And I'll buy another pair next time he needs them." —Anonymous

    Price: $125 (available in sizes 7-15, widths M and W)

    32. Polo Ralph Lauren boots ready for a walk on the wild side.

    Price: $125.99 (available in four colors, sizes 7-13)

    33. Red Wing boots sharp enough to wear with your favorite slacks or just a pair of jeans.

    Promising Review: "These are my first pair of of Redwing boots. I looked at Chippewas and Wolverines before deciding one these. They are really a great looking pair of boots. I constantly find myself staring at them. The fit is perfect! I'm a size 13, so I ordered the 12 because they stretch a bit after a lot of use. I also have flat feet. But still went with a medium with, and they are perfect! I recommend giving a solid two weeks of wear, and any tight or stiff spots should break in very nicely. They are a great boot and totally worth the price." —Cameron H

    Price: $320 (available in three colors, sizes 7-13)

    34. Cole Haan chukka boots that feature a cushioned insole and handsome silhouette.

    Promising Review: "These boots are stunningly beautiful and comfortable. They are very lightweight. And with their trademark Nike OriginalGrand sole, you feel like you can run laps on a track. The leather is supple and not too shiny. It would pair very well with khakis, more casual trousers, or even a nice pair of slim, dark jeans. For a suit, you may want to try a chukka with brogue detailing or more shine. In other words, these strike the perfect balance. I purchased the black ones, and now it's time to get the brown ones." —Spiro

    Price: $162.99+ (available in six colors, sizes 7-16, widths M and W)

    35. Blundstone Chelsea boots with a cushioned insole and cool distressed look.

    Promising Review: "These boots are great for work in the office, or just trekking around town. They're very lightweight for their size, super comfortable, and have a great, casual style. I work in a casual environment, and these look great with nice jeans or work pants. The black unfinished leather looks great, and the little scratches and scuffs give the shoes character. So they look even better over time." —Jason

    Price: $179.95 (available in sizes 8.5-11.5)

    These boots were made for walking AND showstopping!
