I Combed Through All the Shoes at Mango, Zara, and Shopbop--These 25 Are So Good

When it comes to shoe shopping, I have go-to sites that I just know will have the exact shoes I am looking to buy. I am a somewhat picky shoe-shopper (I love shoes and build most of my outfits around my shoe choice), and I have strict guidelines for where I buy them. To pass my shoe shopping test, the shopping destination must have on-trend silhouettes, affordable finds, and a wide range of options. Therefore, my top three retailers that check all of my boxes and continually revisit for shoes are our favorites—Zara, Mango, and Shopbop. 

From chunky Chelsea boots and slouchy knee-highs to embellished mules and house sandals, I’ve officially found the 25 best shoes on Zara, Mango, and Shopbop to buy now. Whether you’re looking for shoes to complete your at-home, elevated loungewear looks or buying shoes with escapism or future travel in mind; there is a shoe on these sites for you. Or, if you’re like me and just find pure comfort in buying new shoes (hello, retail therapy), then you will take great pleasure in scrolling through my finds. Ahead, discover the best shoes to buy on the three most reliable shopping retailers right now—and if you’re debating on whether you should buy them or not, I say yes—no regrets!


Square-toe white booties are always a yes. 

Find a shoe that pairs better with skinny jeans. 

I'm calling it now: pastels are the color of spring 2021. 

Obsessed with this added chain detail; it gives your mundane knee-high boots the refresh they needed this season. 

The new normal = more hiking and outdoor adventures. 


The perfect hybrid of a chunky boot and a sock. 

You cannot go wrong with an over-the-knee white boot. You just can't. 

These are giving me major '90s vibes. 

If you don't have a chunky Chelsea boot yet, these are for you—and they come in multiple color variations. 

Sock-style shoes have an effortlessly cool feel about them. 

This tapered, subtly-slouched ankle-boot is v flattering. 

Already own enough leopard print? Then it's time to introduce zebra print slingback heels to your shoe wardrobe. 


Strappy sandals will never go out of style. 

Aurora James has simply outdone herself with these. 

These are truly like walking on a cloud. 

This shoe is seasonless; pair with a chunky knit sock in winter and then as spring approaches, style with a pair of trouser shorts for a polished look. 

While croc-embossed knee-high boots have been trending the last few seasons, give yours an update by investing in a nude colorway. 

Behold, the shoes I never knew I needed (they always tend to sneak up on me). 

The chain is another subtle design detail that will instantly elevate a simple shoe silhouette. 

I thought I was over clogs, but I do love these clog sandals
