It's an all-too-familiar dilemma: We fall head over high-heels in love with a pair of top-of-the-line steppers — and then we see the triple-digit price tag. And, of course, there are always those okay-looking imitations that seem like no-brainer buys at first, but then they wind up breaking down after just a few wears. They're two opposite — and, sometimes, frustrating — ends of the shoe spectrum. But, thankfully, there's a whole lot of goodness in between.
So, we've rounded up all of the well-made wares that will last you through the winter. And, ringing in at under $50, they certainly won't break the bank. In fact, with this wide assortment of heeled booties, live-in high-tops, and neutral Chelseas, you'll even feel pretty good about picking up two or three pairs. Your crop of brand-new footwear is just a step ahead.
