I'm not sure what budget-friendly means to you, but I'd expect to pay $50-100 for cute, comfortable shoes. Your feet will thank you for going for comfortable over cute $15 flats from Target.

I'd suggest Clark's or Keen brand. I wear Clark's desert boots for my office-ish job (I'm a woman and walk/stand a lot) with inserts to make them even more comfortable. But they have tons of flats like this in lots of colors and styles. Keen is mostly known for athletic shoes, but they have a surprising number of cute flats that feel like you're wearing sneaks, like these.

I buy most of my shoes online, so I don't have good suggestions of stores. But Zappos and many of Amazon's shoes have free returns.

I'm late but I looove fall/winter shoes, so here are my most important ones :)

Gabor booties with a little heel. Pics make them look way more clumsy than they are.

Timberland boots in black. I love these so much. Extremely warm and comfy. Now going for the 3rd winter and I need to get the sole fixed, otherwise they are great.


One pair of wedge booties, which have been my go-to boots for at least three years.

Plus one pair of Lowa Renegades, for the really tough weather and of course for walking the dog.

I neeeed black, flat, tall boots. This is pretty much the only thing missing in my shoe rack right now :)

I'm gonna spam my own fashion sense, I hope you like some of what I like ;p

If you want dresses, I would recommend one size fits all dresses off Amazon. Then you don't have to worry about cups that are not filled by breasts. I really love Sakkas brand, which you can find on Amazon. I have this, for example, and the top part is stretchy so it's basically one size fits all: https://www.amazon.com/Sakkas-103141-Adara-Batik-Dress/dp/B00K1ML5JW/ref=sr_1_33?ie=UTF8&qid=1482827864&sr=8-33&keywords=sakkas+dress

Or any cheap $10-$15 dress from a place like Forever 21 is so poorly designed that it is effectively one size fits all.

Here are some cute colorful socks:


I know a lot of people here also love those cat thigh high socks, like these:


I bought this in the past and I think it's kinda androgynous


Cape coats are technically women's fashion but they're so obscure that I think a lot of people don't know how to gender them


I also really love Mordenmiss jackets (also off Amazon). They're really loose and kinda art smock-y.

I bought this pair of boots a while back and they're really, really nice!


I've also bought these and I get tons of compliments on them


I also have this Forever 21 dino sweatshirt and I can't walk 5 minutes without getting a compliment on it. Unfortunately it isn't sold in stores anymore, but this might help give more ideas of femme clothing.


I think anything that is a "Women's [traditionally male clothing]" is bound to look fairly androgynous. Like women's button downs, women's sweatshirts and sweatpants, women's leather jackets, etc.

comment content: Madden Girls Rancee boot is a little expensive but very worth it in my opinion. (Raleigh, NC winters are milder than most so if protection from snow or cold is a HUGE issue, you might want to find something more lined.) This is an Amazon link but I'm sure you can find it cheaper with some extra digging.

Also check out American Rag Bunkker boots. At one point I found them for like $23.00 somewhere. They got me through three Indiana winters and I loved them. The fabric on the side is a little corny but if you zip it up it's a cleaner look.

I live in interior Alaska, where it gets cold, -40 to -60 in the deep winter. Are you going to be outside a lot? If not, and you're simply running from your car to your work, you can get by with less robust clothing (normal boots, wool socks, jeans, a thick coat, hat and gloves). Otherwise, here's some suggestions for outdoor work:

bunny boots. They're designed for arctic weather and can be had for the price of a pair of converse all-stars.

If you have access to Costco, their kirkland wool socks are a great bang for buck, and you can always double them up for more warmth.

Get yourself some merino wool thermal underwear, top and bottom. It wont stink as much as synthetic after working all day and they seem warmer to me.

Check out your local military surplus store for warm hats, gloves and wool sweaters.

Sierra Trading Post has a lot of good stuff that's heavily discounted. I've bought a lot of down coats from them, as well as base layers and gloves. Also try Gear Trade. Just be aware that down is not good at blocking wind. If its going to be windy, have a windproof shell. Carhartts are good outer layers that can take a beating and aren't too expensive. They run large so you can layer under them.

Get yourself a beanie/toque/wool cap and some turtle fur.

Hope that helps!

u/magelanz · 8 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I'm looking for boots now too. I think my standards are similar to yours: able to stand up to the El Nino rains coming up, able to walk at least 2 miles without getting uncomfortable, and I want something cute, not too formal - something I can wear grocery shopping and back and forth to the gym.

These are the 4 I was looking at, I was going to check out REI tomorrow to see if I can try them out. If anyone has any feedback on mine, feel free to share!

Keen Bern Boots

Merrell Captiva Buckel-Down Boots

Born Jorah Boots

Teva De La Vina Boots

Out of the 4, I think I like the look of the Merrell and Teva the best, but I want to try them on and see them in person before I make any decisions.

EDIT: I have a 13" calf circumference, any ideas if these or other brands might be suited for a narrower calf?

SECOND EDIT: I tried on the 4 at REI today (although they didn't have the Merrell Buckle Down, they had another Captiva) and of them I thought the Teva De La Vina had the best fit and look for me. No major gap in the calf. They didn't carry the black though, so I ended up ordering them on Amazon for $137 and free shipping.

u/moglichkeiten · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Hush Puppies

Dr. Martens - these don't specifically come in a wide-width, but they're sized VERY generously and I highly recommend them as a fellow orthotics-wearer.

Rockport - available in wide-width except for 11

Sam Edelman

Hope you find something you like! I know how tough it is to find nice looking orthotic-friendly footwear.

u/may5th · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

[Sam Edelman Petty ] (http://www.amazon.com/Sam-Edelman-Womens-Petty-Ankle/dp/B004I5D2PI) boots in putty suede? I want a sleek, light weight, really comfortable pair of ankle boots. I walk a lot and always fall back on my New Balances but they just aren't sleek. I'm not too worried about the suede because I already have really solid waterproof boots and I'm generally a fan of taupeish color because (I think) it pairs nicely with brown or black.

My main concern is, are the Petty boots just too trendy? I feel like I'm seeing them everywhere right now and the price tag is high enough that I'd like to get at least a year or two of wear out of them. I guess black leather would be a safer choice in terms of being able to blend in but I just don't like them as much.

u/ruthannr94 · 6 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Okay so first off, be aware that really the only way to wear rain boots in winter in nothern states is with wool socks and even so they can tend to be pretty cold. If you're looking for true winter boots I'd recommend Sorrel.

However, just strictly speaking about Hunter boots. Personally I think they're very stiff and VERY heavy as far as rubber boots go. Also, overpriced. After a lot of evaluation I decided to go with the Kamik Jennifer instead which also comes in a short size the Kamik Jenny. They look very similar to the Hunter boots with the exception that they have a slightly narrower shaft, weigh less than half the Hunters do, have a REALLY cushy insole that's amazing and are made out of a slightly softer rubber. I should have done a side-by-side comparison before I mailed the Hunters and the Jenny boots back, but I preferred the two Kamik styles over the two Hunter styles on the basis of comfort, asthetic, weight, fit and price. Oh, did i mention? They're about a third of the price of Hunters. I haven't had the Kamiks too long, but they're very highly rated and almost all the reviews say they last for years. I haven't seen any reports of Kamiks cracking while I've seen lots of reports of Hunters cracking recently.

So there's my two cents. :)

u/AnnieOakley · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

[Miz Mooz] (http://www.amazon.com/Miz-Mooz-Womens-Bloom-Knee-High/dp/B003EP3RBC/ref=pd_sbs_shoe_3) These may not be quite what you are looking for but I bought a pair in black last year and wear them all the time. My calf measures 13" and they fit snugly. I managed to get them on sale at $140, making them the priciest pair of shoes I own, but considering how often I wear them I am happy with my splurge and think I will be for a few more years. Happy hunting!

u/cokesmcgokes · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

you know, i don't know what season you're getting married in, but there was a velvet boot with a chunky heel i was eyeing a couple years back, and I'm wondering if she would like something like that--adds the height, but v cool a lot like these

this kind is a little more whimsical to me being a wedge, but similar idea

u/krallfish · 2 pointsr/FrugalFemaleFashion

I absolutely ADORE my pair of Teva De La Vina Low boots in bison! They are incredibly comfortable, durable and versatile. I wear them out on the town, but also at the ranch, and even for hiking. They are legitimately waterproof - I walked through ~6in of water in them while crossing a creek and my feet stayed dry.

They also come in a tall version. I would gladly buy my pair over and over again. I plan on buying black and tall versions eventually. :)

u/samarium · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I own these in black and they're my favorite shoe ever tbh, very comfortable. Best for thin feet though.

u/chobap · 1 pointr/FrugalFemaleFashion

How about the Anne Klein Bunty? I actually own this boot in the black leather and I really love it :) Its very comfy and looks quite nice. Depending on what size you wear, it's sold in a couple different places online too.

u/Romperpaw · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Not really bottoms, but I've found a pair of knee-high boots always seems to even out my body and make me look longer and slimmer no matter what kind of pants I'm wearing under them- though I tend to favor skinny jeans since they fit under them more comfortably. I have a pair of loose-fit black skinny jeans from Macys and forest green Gap Corduroy skinny pants.

To go over them, I have a pair of Hush Puppies Alternative boots from Macys (most comfy shoes in the world- period), and these hot Miz Mooz boots. The Miz Mooz boots were on sale for 40% off when I got them on Amazon, and I get so many compliments on them!

I'm short (5'2"), but with this combination, I never feel too pear-y or stubby.

u/_whatnot_ · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I've got two pairs of ankle boots I wear for traveling, an old Merrell Shiloh Cuff and the Teva De La Vina ankle. (Though TBH the "low" Tevas might be better if you have narrow ankles like I do because with the ankle ones I worry the rain will get in between the boot and my skinny jeans.) Unless you've got a well-loved pair of broken-in sturdy boots, I'd go for a comfort one like those, because they're good for all that walking immediately and you can often find them for $50-60 on Amazon.

u/prettypinkdeer · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

PURCHASES! Woohooo. I never shop for myself, like ever. So this past week I treated myself.

u/sorrynothanks · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I really need a new wallet. I'm looking at minimalistic wallets right now because I just want something that's functional, will fit in my pocket, will hold cards and bills, and preferably is under $30 or so. Anyone have any recommendations? I'm looking at Dash wallets right now.

I just want to buy shoes... I'm looking at these more low-key Doc Martens. I'm also thinking of getting these because I want cheap wedges to get used to walking in heels.

I love this dress! The Modcloth sale is really tempting.

u/Riimii · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice
  1. A fun pair of earrings, like any one of these: 1 2 3 4 5 6

  2. A new tote. I really like this one and this one

  3. This necklace

  4. These velvet boots

  5. Fanny pack
u/browneyedgirl79 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Over 10K? Fancy!

  • 'Cause everyone should have one of these.

  • These clearly shouldn't be.

  • My item, please.

    Thank you for the contest!
u/bleguini · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

The majority of my shoes are Keens. I do have a pair of Keen Baby Bern boots, which are great since I live in a cold and snowy place. I also have these Keen Elsa booties, but they also have taller winter boot versions. Most recently they've been carrying these leather chelsea boot style and this ankle zipper style that I'm thinking about getting. I would keep an eye out because they do carry different styles that might be slightly more office appropriate than the hiking boots. Most of my leather sandals are from Keen as well.

u/lgfromks · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice


Just got these- they look great and they are super comfy.

Also have a pair of black docs:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0073ZNQN8/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_t-xzub0TKNYHM also very comfortable.

And a pair of distressed brown cowboy boots. Not the most comfortable if I'm gonna be standing for a few hours.

u/KTTeal · 4 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I have a pair of Madden Girl combat boots, which is an even lower price point than Steve Madden, but one boot I have has lasted years. I wore them very often 3-5 times a week in the fall and winter from 2011 to right now. I'm about to replace them since the fake leather is peeling off on the inner sides, but other than that they are really comfortable. Like work a retail 12 hours shift comfortable. I'm going to get these next to replace them soon.

u/minawasena · 2 pointsr/washingtondc

I have these for snow boots, coming from Central New York.


I used to have a pair of Sorel's but the ankle part was cutting into me. These Columbia boots are super comfy, very warm with fluff inside, and have large mobility in the ankle which is unlike most snow boots.

u/orata · 8 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

these Eileen Fisher booties, which seem like pretty inconspicuous black ankle boots I never thought anyone would notice but for whatever reason people zero in on them and I get complimented whenever I wear them.

u/wonderfullyrich · 1 pointr/antarctica

You got everything I was going to mention, except mentioning the bunny boots... http://www.amazon.com/Extreme-Cold-Weather-Bunny-Boots/dp/B00GMEFRJW Not that I'd buy a pair, but when it comes to a real deep freeze, these are definitely the ones I'd want.

I'd also follow up your mention of the Carhartt coat with this link http://www.carhartt.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&catalogId=10101&productId=32106 as it's similar to what USAP is issuing.

And why in the world would you want to change Big Red to Big Black? We'd never be able to find you?

u/threweyyy · 1 pointr/asktransgender

I got these boots a while back and rather like them:


Also here's another Sakkas dress that Amazon linked to that looks really cool


I'm between the black/pink and the chocolate/green myself

u/yaariana · 7 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Hunter boots. Everyone I talked to said, "Oh, they're so cute. . .but they leak sometimes. They're so great, though!" and I just thought it was ridiculous to buy rain boots that leak.

I bought these Kamik Jennifer boots instead and they're terrific. Low profile, solidly constructed, and super comfortable. I've walked miles in them at a time!

u/marzeepan · 1 pointr/February2017Bumpers

Thanks for all your suggestions! I just got a pair of Columbia Ice Maiden II Winter Boots and also a pair of Minnetonka Cally mocs. Here's to toasty warm feet!

u/tall_slut_no_panties · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Merrell and Keen both have some nice looking flat boots (e.g. 1, 2, and 3). I've seen lots of people wearing those Merrells with skirts and looking very stylish.

u/Ukulehailey · 1 pointr/pics

Suggestion, since Steve Madden's tend to be cheaply made and there are quite a few complaints about broken zippers and things. These are some awesome boots that are similar and will likely hold up better for longer (I'm partial, because I have them). If you're willing to spend the extra few bucks, it'll probably be worth it. Here you go!

u/SkyRuin · 1 pointr/VisitingIceland

If you care more about style, as a 101 hipster I can state that I see these everywhere (I can admit to owning about 5 pairs). People either get a waterproof option or spray them with some sealant. They have worked fine for me on light hikes, but it's more about your personal expectations.

u/peanutbuddy · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I have a few different casual boots that I wear throughout the winter (and the fall and the spring because it's almost always cold where I live). Current line up:

u/lostafarian · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

Here are some from Timberland.

This pair by Sebago looks quite nice, but it's only available in size 5. I found them in a 9 here, but otherwise you might have to wait for them to restock.

u/danyisnthere · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Let's see..

  • Sam Edelman Petty ankle boots, grey suede
  • Sam Edelman Petty ankle boots, black leather
  • Ralph Lauren brown riding boots similar - they're so old that I can't find a picture of them, but got them from Marshall's for $99
  • Cheapo slouch boots for a costume brown suede
  • Ariat cowboy boots with heel because I live in Texas

    Only five! I'm surprised.
u/HOT_LOBSTER · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I got the Petty 2, which unfortunately doesn't come in black and is cheaper for some reason, but it looks like the Petty (which I'm assuming is the one you were looking at) is only 130 on Amazon (some savings, at least?).

u/Magikarpical · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

Amazon.com for cheap docs! I don't know if they are good for winter, since there is no winter in southern California, but they are comfy.

u/DawnTheDreamer · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I bought these amazing boots and they are my favorite things ever. They aren't bulky at all. They are lightweight, fashionable, and will keep you toasty warm and dry. I know they aren't cheap but online black friday deals are going to be coming out soon. I got mine on sale and they are worth every single penny. New England winters suck too so, I feel your pain there. I hope you find everything you are looking for!

u/kokova · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

They don't feel any different from my Kamiks, except they're 3x more expensive and have those little white tags on the front.

u/QQkachu · 1 pointr/fashion

Miz Mooz has some similar boots: here and here
