Best Bet: Marais USA’s Lace-Up Heels


Marias USA has turned this season's ubiquitous oxford into a modern, high-heeled lace-up. At three inches, these kicks will definitely give you some height, but the chunky stacked wooden heels and cushioned soles keep them relatively sidewalk-safe. Plus, they come in two colors — basic New York black and the perfect fall shade of burgundy.
