    Not to be overly dramatic, but it's your last chance. Your final shot. The closing hurrah. Your chance to demonstrate, once and for all, how much panache you have to all of your schoolmates. And while graduation is a celebration of all that you have done (and not what you are wearing), when walking across that stage, all eyes are certainly on you. With your gown and headwear accounted for, there's only one accessory to work with, so why not make it pop?

    The graduation shoe conundrum is a tricky one: On one hand, you really want to pay homage to the tradition and importance of the day, but on the other, you want to stand out and show your personality.

We've gathered a handful of options that're pitch-perfect for the occasion but still have the right amount of punch, and are cool enough to take with you on your next great adventure. Of course, each of our picks ring in under a student-friendly $200 price tag. Now remember, don't trip, keep your chin up...and being a ham is never a good idea.
