1.Sam Edelman Penny Boots to help your feet look like they belong to a trained (and very stylish) equestrian. Yes, even when the only thing you’re riding is a Lyft to brunch.
Promising review: “I love the design so much that I bought both colors! I bought the whiskey-colored boots for winter in 2018 and loved them so much I purchased the black in 2019! They are an amazing all-day boot with leggings, black slacks, or skinny jeans. I can even walk in them during lunch and last all day without pain. They worked through week 33 of my pregnancy and now my feet/calves only fit into tennis shoes, ha! For reference, I am 6 feet tall, wear a size 12 pant, have a size 11 foot, and love a good workout as well as a glass of vino. The wide provides a nice roomy and comfortable fit.” —MamaToBe2019
Get it from Nordstrom for $149.90 (available in two colors and sizes 4-13) or from Amazon for $103.94+ (available in eight colors and sizes 4-13).
2.Embellished ankle boots decked with gold studs, rivets, and buckles for anyone who LOVES to put on a show with their shoe game.
These boots are made to order. A few reviewers also noted that the Amazon seller is very responsive and interactive before, during, and after the purchases — even going so far as to send them photos of the boots to ensure that you’re satisfied with the design’s hardware placement before shipping.
Promising review: “The shoes are AMAZING and not just for the price. The craftsmanship is top-notch. I have to admit I was super nervous about purchasing them because some reviews said the fit was small, but I got a size 38 and I’m a US 7.5 and they fit perfectly. Thank you so much, Leo!” —J.
Get it from Amazon for $55.98+ (available in 10 colors and sizes 4-11).
3.Dr. Martens 1460 Rainbow Patent Leather Boots to put a holographic twist on your plain black shoe routine while keeping your foot comfy thanks to an air-cushioned sole.
The boot has a glossy, holo finish that shows different colors as the light hits different angles. It comes with two pairs of shoestrings (black and rainbow) for days you want to tone things down and days you want to be as loud as possible.
Promising review: “They’re stunning in person and just what I was looking for. The boots are not heavy at all and comfy right off the bat! Definitely buying an extra pair!!” —Bunnyyy
Get them from Nordstrom for $130 (available in sizes 5-11) or the hi-top version from Amazon for $169.95+ (available in two colors and sizes from 5-10).
4.Slouchy heeled boots with blingy wrapped buckles that you can wear from work to happy hour to date night because be honest, you’re not doing outfit changes for all that anyway.
FYI: Several reviewers noted that they had to size up to get the best fit.
Promising review: “These are the prettiest boots I have ever owned and I have a boot fetish so I’ve owned A LOT! I read the reviews so I took the advice and went a half size up from an 8 to an 8.5 and they fit perfectly. They do not have a zipper. They are pull-on but very easy to take on and off and so comfortable. I am 100% satisfied!” —Karen Davis
Get them from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in four colors and sizes 6-10).
5.Pointed heeled bots In snake print for days when you can’t decide whether or not you should ~slither~ into an animal print or plain black boot.
Get them from ASOS for $72 (available in sizes 5-10).
6.Charles By Charles David boots with a cushioned insole to help walk you prance around in pointed-toe heels like a pro.
Get them from Nordstrom for $149.95 (available in three colors and one print, sizes 5-11).
7.Charles By Charles David boots with an asymmetrical flap secured by a bejeweled button.
I OWN THESE AND THEY’RE AMAZEBALLS!!! I spotted these pretty boots in an online sale and bought them in a taupe color with a faux suede finish. They look so expensive in person. The asymmetrical flap and sparkly button set them apart from the typical ankle boot. I wear a size 8.5 and ordered a half-size up since these boots are narrow and fit snugly. The 9 fit me perfectly. I wore mine with a heel insole (as I do with all heels taller than two inches) and it was pretty comfortable. Since the ones on Amazon are marked down even lower than the sale price I got them for, I’m tempted to buy the other two colors because the boots look KILLER with everything I wear them with.
Get them from Amazon for $30.04+ (available in three colors, three textures, and sizes 6-10).
8.Drool-worthy metallic floral-embroidered booties made of 100% genuine suede leather for days when you don’t mind being stopped every five seconds by people swooning over how CA-UTE they are.
Promising review: “I’ve received so many compliments on these unique, beautiful shoes. I am a size 7 and they fit perfectly. They are comfortable. I was able to work all day wearing them. As another reviewer stated, the colors are slightly different from the company’s pictures. However, I think that they are even prettier in person.” —Tehanu
Get them from Amazon for $105.97+ (available in two colors and sizes 6-11.5).
9.100% vegan suede ankle boots with open toes that are appropriate for in-between weather days this fall.
FYI: These ankle boots are also slip-resistant!
Get them from Amazon for $21 (available in four colors and sizes 6-10).
10.Traditional black ankle boots for lazy days when you can’t be bothered to try at all but still want to look put-together.
Get them from Walmart for $37.99 (available in two colors and sizes 6-11).
11.Water-resistant belt-wrapped winter boots made with faux suede, stitching, and lace details to keep your feet cozy this fall ~and~ winter.
When the unpredictable fall temperatures start to feel like a premature winter, it’s going to be so clutch to have these beauties to pull from your closet.
Promising review: “Exactly what I wanted. I wear a lot of leggings so I wanted nice boots that go with anything. The boots are pretty and appear to be well made. You can remove the printed cover, roll the boots down to expose the lacey insert, or leave them plain. They have some arch support and a sole that I think will last a while. I wear a 9-9.5. The description says if you wear a true 1/2 size, then you should order smaller. I should have listened to my common sense and ordered the 10. I ordered 9. I was able to get my foot in but it was just a little shorter than I like. They have a nice rounded toe. I have wide feet and they weren’t terribly cramped but I know I would not be able to wear them long and I would like to add arch support if possible. The boots are nice enough that I went ahead and ordered a size 10 in a different color. I sprayed this pair with waterproofing so the material doesn’t get the white salt lines on them this winter. The color of the boots didn’t change. I can wear them in all weather but they are not snow boots.” —Deb K.
Get them from Amazon for $32.67+ (available in 12 colors and sizes 6-11).
12.Woven satin boots because why stick to just open-toe boots to avoid foot sweat when you can keep your feet ventilated with this crazy-cute caged design?
Caution: It’s going to be a major toughie trying to figure out which color you want to order these boots in. You could also just give in to your shoe obsession and grab both.
Get them from ASOS red for $103 (sizes 5-10) or in black for $103 (sizes 5-10).
13.Double sole hiking sneaker boots for people who adore summer’s dad sneaker trend and want to keep the good thing going through autumn.
I’m 95% sure that these aren’t ~really~ hiking boots and simply a take on that outdoorsy aesthetic. That said, you may not want to trek up any mountains wearing these but they’re still going to look fire as you walk up and down steps, step into your car, step up your shoe collection, and any other stepping you plan to do that doesn’t involve actual mountains.
Get them from Missguided for $61 (available in two colors and sizes 5-10).
14.Pointed toe boots with a fun tortoiseshell design that will mos def turn up your Instagram OOTD.
The tortoiseshell style is everywhere right now so consider yourself an effortless master of the trend with these ankle boots.
Get them from Boohoo in black for $32 (available in sizes 5-10) or in white for $32 (available in sizes 5-10).
15.Metallic boots for fall functions that call for a little extra razzle-dazzle.
Get them from Amazon for $39.88+ (available in four colors and sizes 5-14).
16.Lace-up boots with a croc-effect finish for a biker edge that still looks polished.
Get them from ASOS for $56 (available in sizes 4-11).
17.Monochrome rubber boots so you can survive soggy days in shoes that don’t ruin your cool outfits.
Promising review: “I have been on a long search for rain boots that are fashionable, have no chemical smell, and have good craftsmanship. After searching through the many choices offered by Amazon, I bought these for a trip to Alaska and they were fantastic with a thicker rubber and well made. I have wide calves and I like these because I don’t have to worry about the shaft circumference on these since they are not too high. Note on size: My shoe size is normally 6.5 to 7 so I ordered a size 7. They fit very comfortably with socks. Seriously, these boots look like they were made for me.” —Kevin J. Mays
Get them from Amazon for $19.74+ (available in four colors and sizes 6-11 with a wide calf option for each size).
18.Western ankle boots just subtle enough to give you that “Old Town Road” vibe without going full-out cowboy so you can wearrrrr ’em ’til you can’t no more.
If the western trend has been catching your eye, then I totally get it. It’s hard to not be intrigued when Lil’ Nas X is running around these parts in holographic cowboy getups. If you’re not ready to take it that far just yet, then these chill boots have the everyday-wear appeal of classic leather ankle boots with just a lil’ hint of Texas.
Get them from Missguided for $54 (available in sizes 5-10).
19.Or metallic Western boots for anyone down to go full-out cowboy.
Yes, I’m fully aware that I snuck two western boots into your eyesight. It’s because there are so many drastically different ways to tip-toe into this trending style. These are probably a great fit if you love metallic shoes and this isn’t your first rodeo with western-inspired wear. From the looks of this Missguided outfit idea, you can also incorporate the boots into your summer wardrobe and then keep the glitzy fun going into fall.
Get them from Missguided for $79 (available in sizes 5-10).
20.Circus By Sam Edelman mixed media boots with all the right details to guarantee that even your simplest outfits could never be boring with these on your feet.
Get them from Amazon for $69.72+ (available in three colors and sizes 5-11).
21.Faux suede military-style boots that are so casual and pretty that you’ll want to wear them every day of fall.
Promising review: “These boots are really cute! I have gotten a lot of compliments and they are very comfortable. I wore them for several hours with no pain in my feet and I am not one of those ladies who wear big heels all the time. Got my usual size 9 and the fit is like a glove.” —Alise R.
Get them from Amazon for $24.43+ (available in five colors and sizes 5.5-12).
22.Tall lace-up boots for people who aren’t afraid of a daring thigh-high situation.
Multiple reviewers of different heights and leg sizes seemed to appreciate that the lace-up detail helped them customize the shoes to their preferred fit.
Promising review: “I read a number of reviews before I made my purchase. I took a chance and I am glad I did. I want to address a couple of issues in reviews that stuck out to me. The boot is not poorly made. I actually love the make of the boot. The leather does not look cheap as it’s shaped for your calf and your knee. The foot part of the boot is very comfortable and it doesn’t feel heavy at all. I love knee-high boots and usually, you have to pay $70 for a good knee-high boot. Many just go straight up your leg with no shape at all. I am 5’6 and by no means are my legs skinny. This boot laced all the way up and fit perfectly. If I have a lace problem what I like to do is keep the laces fitted near the foot and let them gradually get loose towards the knee to keep the back of knee comfortable… The price is great and the boot is wonderfully made. I am sure I will get a couple of years of wear out of them.” —Ms. Nichie
Get them from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in two colors and sizes 5-11).
23.Shearling-trimmed boots with a layered sole to keep your feet cozy and warm from your toes to ankles.
By the way, several reviewers noted that these boots look great but do squeak when you walk during the first few wears, although the sound goes away over time.
Promising review: “I love the fit! They are comfortable right out of the box. I read all the reviews before purchasing. A handful of reviewers commented negatively because they ‘squeak.’ Most new boots do. These did for an hour or so. Then, they softened up and the squeak was gone. They fit and feel like very expensive boots. I’m very pleased with my purchase and am ordering a second pair.” —Karen S.
Get them from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in three colors and sizes 5.5-11).
