For most of us, mall-brand shoes were our very first foray into the wonderful world of footwear, which may have something to do with why they'll always hold a special place in our hearts (and closets). But unlike back in the day, you don't have to go to the mall to shop mall-brand shoes. Thanks to the start of that magical thing called the internet, the vast collection of mall-store shoes can be shopped from the comfort of our couches.

While that's all well and good, the only problem now is deciding which wallet-friendly shoes to buy. So we searched the pages of brands like Steve Madden, Aldo, Nine West, and more to drastically narrow the options down to 20 stylish choices. Among them are the coolest ankle boots, flats, and heels you can buy from the mall (or from your couch).

Below shop 20 expensive-looking mall-brand shoes.
