When it comes to shopping on the internet, Who What Wear editors are serious experts. We’ve spent our time combing the best retailers and we’re always on the lookout for new sources to find amazing pieces. And shoes happen to collectively be one of our favorite things to shop for. From boots to heels to cool comfy slides, there's no shoe category we don't get excited about.

To break down the very best places to buy shoes online, I asked Who What Wear editors to share their favorite spots. Ahead you’ll find where they’re buying shoes to add to their stylish wardrobes. From the cool brands we wear on repeat to the retailers tapping into the best shoe trends of the season to the places to find affordable shoes that hit on the latest trends, these are the best spots to order shoes online.

With a range of cool emerging designers and early releases of It shoes from major brands, MyTheresa is always a retailer I look to for the coolest new shoe drops.

"I love Mango for its selection of trend-forward and timeless shoes that stay under the $250 mark. I own a handful of boots, flats, and sandals from the Spanish brand and they always look so chic and much more expensive than their actual price tag."

"If you purchase a pair of Neous shoes, you can pretty much guarantee that they'll be in style for many years to come. I love the way they feel completely current, but somehow timeless at the same time. While they are definitely an investment, they're incredibly high quality and comfortable. They're also experts at nailing the heel height I actually want to wear, mid to kitten heel height only please!"

"When I'm shopping for something but don't yet know exactly what or which version I want, I always turn to Shopbop because they have such a strong range of brands from affordable to contemporary to designer."

"Net-a-Porter is always my go-to for both classic and newer shoe brands. The range of products is always exciting—you can shop everything from high-end luxury to contemporary labels all in one place."

"I'm always cruising Revolve's shoe section! I love that they carry all my favorite shoe brands with exclusive styles only sold at Revolve, but they have a lot of great in-house shoe brands that feel different than anything else you can find online."

"Italist is my secret spot for finding deals on designer shoes. Everything ships directly from Italy (quickly, I might add), and they have a lot of styles that are hard to find in the U.S. Plus, prices are usually lower than they are on domestic sites, and they're constantly marking even current-season styles down. Sizing is definitely limited, so check the new arrivals often if you want to luck out."

"Nordstrorm's shoe department is epic—there's basically something for everybody. Whether I'm in the market for fresh sneakers or a new pair of boots, I always hit up Nordstrom first."
