Shoes are the weak spot in our hearts and probably our wallets. They pull outfits together, make statements, and most of all, look absolutely amazing.
We know the struggle when it comes to shoe shopping; it’s not so much not being able to find the perfect pair than it is trying to decipher which pair to get. With so many types of shoes and so little time (and money), we’ve rounded up five pairs of shoes that we love for under $200.
So put those tissues away ladies, there’s no need to cry over shoes worth more than your rent. These affordable and adorable shoes will have you jumping for joy – unless you’re in stilettos.
Ankle booties by Free People at Luna Boutique – $168 $118
You know that worn-in leather look that you can only seem to find in vintage shoes? Well, Free People has perfected it. These ankle booties, sold at Luna Boutique, go great with a pair of light wash Levi’s, a loose-fitted tee, and a brimmed hat. With two straps laid across the top of the shoe accompanied by brass buckles, these are truly what we’d hope for in a leather ankle bootie – and, as luck would have it, they’re on sale.
Avery suede lasercut mules at No Rest for Bridget – $39.99
We’re not lazy, but if we can make one aspect of our day easier then you bet we’ll do it. These beige mules not only make it easy to pair an outfit with, but they’re also easy to throw on, grab a cup of coffee, and head off to work. With a 2.25-inch heel, they also make for a comfortable shoe that can be worn throughout the day. Wear these in the winter with a cable knit sweater or in the spring with a sundress; these shoes aren’t seasonally challenged.
Terracotta suede ankle boots at Prism Boutique – $168
They say some red lipstick will add a pop of color to any look. We believe this rule also transfers over in the realm of clothing – specifically shoes. This pair of ankle boots from Prism Boutique in Long Beach will make a statement with any ensemble. You’ll say: I already conquered this outfit, now I’m going to conquer the world. Channel your inner Julie Sariñana and pair them with a striped tee, leather jacket, and some cool denim.
Nike Air Prestos at Blends – $120
To quote Cara Delevingne, “I spend most of my time wearing uncomfortable things, so for me, it’s all about trainers.” Fortunately for us, brands like Nike, Adidas and Puma have been trending and are showing no sign of slowing down. These Nike Air Prestos are lightweight, have a ton of support, and are downright beautiful. So even if you aren’t a famous supermodel, you’ll look great in these shoes.
Stecy suede peep-toe heels at CocoRose Boutique – $28
Excuse us while we wipe the drool off our mouths. These suede peep-toe heels can work for virtually any occasion – work, dinners, or even Vegas. High-end designers have created this silhouette for hundreds of dollars, but these beauties are only $28 at CocoRose Boutique. And if you’re sticking to the budget, then you’ve got at least $100 left to spend on a new dress to go with these shoes.
