No matter how many times I try, when I’m scrolling through Shopbop, Nordstrom, or Net-A-Porter, I always find myself looking at one thing: statement heels. Despite the fact that we’re still living in a global pandemic, despite the revival of flat-shoe trends, and despite the fact that my feet beg me to throw on some sneakers, I can not stop shopping for and wearing heels. Maybe that makes me a masochist, or maybe I’m channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw, but I digress because all that really matters to me is finding the best heels for spring. And while there are a few designer ones on my radar, nothing beats finding an affordable pair of unique heels that look more expensive than they actually are. So in that vein, I’ve taken it upon myself to round up some of the best affordable heels, all under $150. From trend-forward styles featuring platforms and crystals to staples like mules and strappy sandals, these pairs are affordable and extremely stylish.
