Let’s face it—women love boots. If we want to impress someone on a first date, feel classy at work, go hiking comfortably, make our friends jealous, warm up in cold weather, get noticed on a night out, boots are there for us.
Different boots reflect different attitudes. There seems to a type of boot for every lifestyle, from fishing to a night out dancing. We wear Uggs to warm up, Dr. Martens to feel like a badass, high heels to feel sexy, and kitten heels to feel classy.
Come on, even girls who aren’t “that into shoes” have at least one pair of boots in their closets!
If you’re anything like me, the only two things you might resent boots for are the cost and the dilemma of ending up with a cheap, poorly made pair. Thankfully, purchasing boots online rather than from a store usually results in cheaper, yet higher quality pairs!
The best online stores I’ve found for buying boots are Shoes.com and 6pm.com
6pm.com is a great online store if you’re seeking boots you need for any purpose. There are thousands of pairs to choose from with a large range of sizes and colors. You can narrow down your choices by size, width, style, boot shaft, heel height, color, occasion, brand, price, materials, theme, shaft circumference and height, accents, pattern, and heel style.
If you’re trying to be frugal like I am, searching by price might just shock you. Even if you’re completely broke, you can afford a pair of these! The best part, of course, is no shipping! The price you see is the price you pay.
I personally love the red Michael Antonio Jaiynn boots, which are only $36.47 (although the white pair is just as cute and only $27.50).

I’m pretty picky when it comes to boots, but I was able to find a whopping ten pairs in the “Under $40 section” alone that I would seriously consider buying, like these MIA Pacey boots.
This isn’t even a discount store—they have boots that cost well over $1,000 as well. For example, they have a killer pair of Guiseppe Zanottis for $1,416.99.

Shoes.com is the other website I recommend for boots, and like 6pm.com, they also do not charge for shipping.
It doesn’t have as many categories to narrow down from like 6pm does—only size/width, color, style, brand, and heel height. However, it’s slightly more user friendly because the words used to describe boot styles are more relatable. With titles like western, military inspired, ankle, dress, and platform, you can find what you’re looking for fast.
If you’re the type of girl who sees boots as more of an investment than an on-the-whim purchase, but hate having to save up forever to afford the high quality stuff, look no further.
I adore these Volatile Women’s Hepburns. They’re so classy and cute, but cost only about $60 as opposed to an original $99.
What I really love about this website is that it includes even the more prestigious brands—Fergalicious, Jessica Simpson, Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren, Paris Hilton, and Calvin Klein are all here.
You won’t find any low quality boots at these online stores, and after browsing them, you’ll realize you can likely afford a pair that you want right now. Why bother with the hassle of shopping in-person and dealing with a pushy salesperson while having to pay full price?
