If September's 798-page Vogue is too heavy to open, or it somehow ate your new Christie Brinkley–graced issue of New York, or you've been devoid of all media while off filming a reality show, get one thing straight: It's fall fashion time. And though that means painfully cold weather is on the way, we're excited to usher in the new season for one big reason: shoes! In our latest Shop-A-Matic, we bring you 160 pairs to covet, from women's flats, pumps, and boots to casual and dressy styles for men. In keeping with these economic times, 64 pairs are under $200. Here are a few of our favorites:
Interesting Men's Boots: Low Wedge by Acne
Why we like it: It's an updated version of your standard worker boot. Plus, those green laces are such an adorable quirk.
Your New Staple Flat: Bauble Flat by Old Navy
Why we like it: The little baubles are a cute addition, dressing up plain patent flats so they can take you from work to the weekend.
The Shoe for Compulsively Dressy Men: Hurren by Aldo
Why we like it: This is a classic men's dress shoe at a good price. Simple styles like this look like they cost much more than they really do.
Rubber Come-Hither Pumps: Raspberry Rubber Mary-Jane Heel by Marni
Why we like it: Only Marni could convince us to like rubber shoes. When you wear these, just don't forget to use another rubber (hint hint, nudge nudge).
Peep-Toe Booties: Red Rivington Ankle Boot by Alice + Olivia for Payless
Why we like it: It's a hot fire-engine-red peep-toe bootie that costs less than $50. Diffusion lines are so brilliant sometimes.
Our Dream Booties: Satine Bootie by Balenciaga
Why we like it: You can't get any more S&M than this Latex and leather spike-heeled shoe. But, you know, in a good way.
