Wearing a suede pump in the snow is not a great idea. Believe us, we speak from experience. But, that's not to say we're going to spend all winter dodging heels all together. Actually, we consider a dressier suede shoe a bit of a winter staple. The fuzzy fabric is luxe and seasonal, while the sexy silhouette is flattering year-round.
However, since most of us will not stockpile our closets with multiple pairs of shoes that can't be worn in the snow or without several layers, we'd rather focus on one that's the best of the best. Cue: Rank & Style. In their hunt for the one, the e-commerce investigators say that the style with the most impressive user reviews also happens to be one that comes in well under $100.
The black suede heel that came out on top was Sole Society's Jenn d'Orsay pump, priced at $70. The design features a leg-lengthening pointy toe and moderate 2 1/2" heel. The winner also comes as a bit of a pleasant surprise as the other top-10 styles, though beautiful, were much more steep and much more pricey. Now, with your new, math-approved shoe that's easy on the wallet, there should be plenty of leftover funds to shop for pieces to coordinate with them — like jeans, a very essential pair of tights, and a sturdy pair of boots for when your d'Orsays are no match for slush.
