    Pointed-toe lace-ups are the surest way to step up your flats game — just ask these glittery J. Crew versions, which have already sold out online. You may have some luck in store, though, but if not, they also come in equally cool snakeskin.

    We're keeping mum on the whole Mansur Gavriel controversy, because Maryam Nassir Zadeh's mules speak for themselves. While they'll render themselves useless once the snow comes, you'll have plenty of time to show them off over the next few months.

    Never heard the gospel of No. 6's legendary clogs? Let us show thee the way. The Nolita boutique makes seemingly infinite iterations of the shoe style, including mules, platform sandals, fur-lined versions, and these simple slingbacks.

    If you're looking to invest in boots that only get better with time, a pair of Fryes is the way to go. It's even better if they're as flattering as these over-the-knee zip-ups.

    Doc Martens never go out of style (and they last forever), and this fall's no exception — we like these 1461s in a blue geometric design to give the classics an upgraded, tech-y feel.

    When it finally comes time to shop for fall shoes that are less pretty and fun and more, y'know, seasonally mandated, this Brooklyn-based minichain is your best bet. Expect to find rain- and snow-friendly brands like Sorel, Hunter and Timberland.

    What brand doesn't this North Williamsburg boutique with a warehouse-like feel carry? From trendy, affordable options like Dolce Vita and Miz Mooz to higher quality brands like Rachel Comey and Frye, it's got a solid range of booties, heels, sandals, or these unique hybrids by Jeffrey Campbell.

    Portuguese newcomer Fly London (nope, it's not from England) is known for its signature jagged-y edged, super-soft soles, but these lace-up booties are just as supportive — and cuter, too.

    H&M's big sister brand carries tons of trendy platform oxfords, suede booties, and perfectly minimalist slip-on loafers like these. Bonus: nearly everything's under $200.
