I Like Doing Shoe Research, and My Favorite New Styles Happen to Be Under $200

I’m going to take a wild guess and say that I’m not alone in this statement: I like doing shoe research. I mean, shoe shopping is just flat-out fun, isn’t it? Well, on that note, I found quite the smattering of new standout styles after a recent perusal to uncover fresh silhouettes to recommend in my various stories. While the edit below certainly runs the gamut, the similarity is that all of the styles I gravitated toward happen to ring in under $200.

Below, you’ll see all of the finds I’m talking about. Included in the mix are a few stellar pairs of boots that will take you through this season and beyond. If you’re looking for a dressier pair of shoes for any parties on your radar, there a few A+ styles in that department as well.

Okay, get ready. All of that and more is coming at you by scrolling along.

The Western-inspired silhouette is very right-now.

I'm all about chunky loafers. I wear mine with white tube socks and cool light-wash jeans.

Can't go wrong here. I basically live in these Birkenstocks this time of year.

These knee-high boots look so high-end.

Just in case you're somewhere a bit warmer.

I always shop Italist for some of the best deals out there (the designer items are consistently at a great price), and the retailer has an epic up-to-60%-off sale right now. These lovely Kenzo sneakers are included!

Another pair of shoes I'd wear with cozy white socks.

Picture these boots with your favorite midi skirt.

Alex Mill launched its first shoe silhouette—beautiful.

Another gorgeous pair of sandals.
