In the words of Candy Pratt Price in the 2009 movie The September Issue, “September is the January of fashion” which means it’s time to bust the credit card out of your wallet! This season we are seeing everything from thigh-high leather boots to suede loafers. Whatever your style, you'll surely find your match.
There’s nothing we like better than shopping for a new pair (or two) of shoes and if you’re looking for fall’s hottest footwear check out our ten must-haves for under $200.
The ankle bootie is the perfect in between shoe to ease the transition from summer to fall and we found two hot numbers that will make you scream like a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show. The first is a simple streamlined bootie by Seychelles made from leather and designed with a classic almond toe. It’s perfect to wear to work with a pair of dress pants or on the weekends with stretch pants. For a shoe that makes a bold statement, Zara’s leather chain bootie will bring out the ride or die chick in you, just like the song. We’re drooling over the side cut-outs and silver chains that stretch around the back.
1. Seychelles Black Solitude Boot, $140 USD
2. Zara Leather Chain Bootie, $129.
With fall quickly approaching it’s time to toss your worn-out knee-high boots; you know which pair we’re talking about, they’re stained with two winters worth of salt. Having a classic equestrian style boot is a must-have for any woman during the winter and this chocolate brown number by Aerosoles is just what the doctor ordered. It has a cushioned footbed guaranteed for comfort and an elastic back panel. California brand DAV takes a modern spin on the riding boot with this chic ombre effect shoe that darkens from blue to black.

4. Dav Black Equestrian Boot, $98 USD.
When you’re not trekking out and about in the Canadian cold this fall slip your feet into a pair of comfortable and, most importantly, stylish flats. ASOS takes the classic ballet flat up several notches with this black and white, spotted cutie made from pony hair which costs – wait for it – less than $50! Another chic and comfortable option is this classic smoking slipper by Sam Edelman, the tassel detailing add edginess and glam.
