"Paige makes what I'm convinced are the world's most comfortable boots. You only have to slip them on to immediately recognize the difference. I would walk miles in mine." — Kat Collings, editor in chief
"Right now, Paige is making probably the most comfortable (but still cool) ankle boots out there." — Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour, market editor
"By Far is a newer brand, of course, but I've been very impressed with its boot selection from the start. Every style has special, of-the-moment details (like square toes), but they're subtle enough to not end up looking dated." — Payer
"Newer brands like By Far and others are designing the best boots in the business." — Kristin Nichols, managing editor
"There's a reason every single fashion girl either already owns a pair or is plotting how to get their hands on Paris Texas boots. The materials and shape are what's new and next in premium Italian footwear." — Collings
"Stuart Weitzman's ankle boots will never really go out of style, per se. Its classic pairs will always be something I'll want in my closet, making them the ideal investment boot brand." — Anna LaPlaca, assistant editor
"I have to mention Stuart Weitzman. The brand is a household name and with good reason. I only own one pair of boots from the brand, but they are one of the most comfortable pairs I own. Worth the splurge for sure." — Eggertsen
