The 9 Best Affordable Shoe Buys, According to Fashion Girls

Whether you’re on a budget or just want a great fashion find, there are plenty of affordable shoe purchases on the market right now that you should consider adding to your closet. It’s my job as a fashion editor to spot the best new market, so I’m constantly sifting through retailers to see what’s new, as well as photos on Instagram to see which pieces fashion girls are wearing. So, what are the best new shoe buys that don’t come with a huge price tag?

Who What Wear’s market editor, Nicole Eshaghpour, recently stepped out in a pair of velvet combat boots from Dr. Martens that our entire office suddenly wants. I’ve spotted other fashion girls in notable inexpensive shoe finds ranging from sneakers to boots to heels that all ring in under $200. For all of the Zara fans out there, there are a number of fashion girls who have been spotted wearing shoes from the fast-fashion retailer as well. I’m personally a fan of Zara’s tan leather slides and actually picked up two pairs of them so that I’ll have another set ready next summer. I also ordered a pair of Zara’s strappy heels, which I spotted on Fiona Zanetti, and know they’ll be the perfect shoes to wear over the holidays.

Ahead, see all the best affordable shoe finds straight from the closets of fashion girls, and shop each for yourself.
