Come winter, the impulse to amass a whole new arsenal of shoes is all too tempting. With the stream of delightfully chunky loafers, sleek knee-high boots and elegant ballet flats hitting the market, this time of year is a shoe addict’s dream—and their bank account’s nightmare. Footwear generally isn’t cheap, especially if you tend to stick to leather designs. But as experts in budget-friendly fashion, we’ve searched high and low for affordable alternatives to the designer shoes that are already defining the season ahead. The good news is our hunt has been incredibly fruitful, the bad news is your bank balance might suffer after all because you’re going to struggle to pick favourites.

One high-street brand, in particular, has come out on top: Marks and Spencer. We’re so impressed by its latest drop of Chelsea boots, platform heels and chunky loafers, and we know you’ll be just as excited. M&S has long been a beloved source of basic pieces, but this new autumn collection demonstrates the brand’s grasp of the trends, too. See for yourself—below, we’ve rounded up the best boots, loafers, flats and heels from Marks and Spencer into one handy shopping gallery. Enjoy!

Burgundy will forever be a part of my autumn palette—and those heels are something special.

The colour is espresso, and these sharp boots are sure to energise you.

The square toe is such a great touch.

Croc-effect is a key trend this season, and these are so much more affordable than the designer alternatives.

A chunky take on the Chelsea boot.

One for the minimalists.

These have a really retro feel.

Chunky loafers will be everywhere this autumn. Watch this space.

I added these to my basket as soon as I saw them. A perfect way to introduce red into your winter wardrobe.

I’d style these with white socks for a preppy look. 


Made for festive season parties.

I love this two-tone pair, but they do also come in plain black.

The ultimate dancing shoes for your next night out.

These are wide-fitting, so extra comfortable for those who struggle with shoes being too narrow.

Though these look intimidatingly high, the platform means your foot isn’t at too steep an angle.

These are just too good.

I’d print-clash these snakeskin slingbacks with pinstripe trousers.

Chanel vibes.

So much fun.
