·6-min read

These Zappos boots are made for walking, full stop. This is a list of the highest-rated boots (from the online retailer best known for outstanding customer service and well, shoes) according to those who have actually worn them and in styles that are totally on-trend right now. Yes, instead of you having to search the deepest depths of the internet for hours on end to find the perfect fall boots, let someone else do the work walk for you.

Looking for a pair of rain boots that are also supportive enough to wear all day long? Or, maybe you need a chunky boot to stomp through the falling leaves? They’re all here in whatever shade of black you need or heel height you prefer. (Low-heel booties are totally in this season, BTW.) And, each pair of boots is under $100 — meaning you can feel even more comfortable sliding your feet into [AND sliding your credit card to pay for] them.

The pairs ahead have all been road-tested and customer-approved, now all you have to do is scroll.

<h3>Dirty Laundry Libson Sedona</h3><br>"I love these boots! They are exactly what I was looking for. Casual but stylish and comfortable. I was a little worried about the fact that they are slip ons, but it's not an issue at all. They easily slip on and off, and the ankles of the boots are still skinny enough to slip under my skinny jeans if I want to. I will say that the toe box on these shoes is slightly wider/larger than most shoes, so if you have narrow feet that may cause an issue, but they're fine for my average feet." - Stefanie<br><br><strong>Dirty Laundry</strong> Lisbon Sedona, $, available at <a href="https://go.skimresources.com/?id=30283X879131&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.zappos.com%2Fp%2Fdirty-laundry-lisbon-sedona-coffee-smooth%2Fproduct%2F9110725%2Fcolor%2F143728" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Zappos" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Zappos</a>

<h3>Matisse Astoria Bootie</h3><br>"Love these! I could not wait to wear them so on their first time out I spent four hours standing, socializing and walking city streets. No blisters.

<h3>Circus by Sam Edelman Darielle</h3><br>"I love these booties because they're chunky - I live in the country and heels just don't cut it here. These boots not only look stylish, but they're functional and I can wear them to pick apples, run errands, or out for dinner. I also love that they aren't heavy. They don't weigh down my feet at all. And they go perfectly with a pair of flared jeans! They're my favorite new fall shoes!" – Anonymous<br><br><strong>Circus by Sam Edelman</strong> Darielle, $, available at <a href="https://go.skimresources.com/?id=30283X879131&url=https%3A%2F%2Ffave.co%2F35F1eIJ" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Zappos" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Zappos</a>

<h3>Timberland Courmayeur Valley 6" Boot</h3><br>"I felt these ran a bit small for my normal size due to an almond shaped toe. I went up 1/2 size and they were perfect. I love that they are very light weight and not clunky. They aren’t stiff so I didn’t need time to break them in. They were comfortable right out of the box. I got the dark brown which are the perfect shade of a deep rich brown. I also bought them in black." – Anonymous <br><br><strong>Timberland</strong> Courmayeur Valley 6" Boot, $, available at <a href="https://go.skimresources.com/?id=30283X879131&url=https%3A%2F%2Ffave.co%2F37Pr4MX" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Zappos" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Zappos</a>

<h3>LAUREN Ralph Lauren Tally</h3><br>"I absolutely love these rain boots and get compliments every time I wear them. They are nice enough to wear to work but also look great with jeans or casual outfits on the weekends, or even dressed up for a rainy night on the town. Bought them in a rush before a rainy vacation and they were perfect. I added a cheap gel insole, which made them much more comfortable and able to withstand walking 5+ miles per day on my trip. Highly recommended." – Anonymous<br><br><strong>Lauren Ralph Lauren</strong> Tally, $, available at <a href="https://go.skimresources.com/?id=30283X879131&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.zappos.com%2Fp%2Flauren-ralph-lauren-tally-ocelot-print-black%2Fproduct%2F8453922%2Fcolor%2F842039" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Zappos" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Zappos</a>

<h3>Palladium Pampa Hi</h3><br>"These shoes are very nice and I appreciate them for the sturdy feeling they give me. They're similar to converse in the way that arch support is only mildly present, but I purchased a pair of ten dollar insoles and all is well with these shoes now. If you don't lace them up all the way they're relatively easy to slide on and off but still stay put when you need them to. Like others have said, they need some time to break them in - but after a week or two they're just fine. They also seem to be rather durable. These are probably one of my favorite pair of sneakers/boots I've ever owned." - Anonymous <br><br><strong>Palladium</strong> Pampa Hi, $, available at <a href="https://go.skimresources.com/?id=30283X879131&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.zappos.com%2Fp%2Fpalladium-pampa-hi-vetiver%2Fproduct%2F7867350%2Fcolor%2F120555" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Zappos" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Zappos</a>
