If you're going to take a shoe recommendation from anyone, take it from a bunch of 20-somethings. No, but really. Once this demographic gives a pair of booties their stamp of approval, you can trust they've been put through the wringer. These are the people who will wear a pair of shoes from morning brunch to a late-night dinner without ever taking them off, stand in those same shoes while braving hour-long bar lines, and maybe even walk home in them the next morning — all in the name of product testing, of course. So when I (a proud 20-something) say the Moda Chics Ankle Boots are so cute and comfortable that I convinced all of my friends to get a pair too, you know they're the real deal.

I first discovered these shoes on a random weekday in the fall of 2019, when my desire to sport new booties that weekend led me to Amazon in all of its two-day shipping glory. After typing "chunky black booties" in the search bar and conducting approximately 20 minutes of research, I figured these boots would work well enough and decided to give them a shot. 

I was immediately impressed with the booties' quality upon arrival, and the chunky, platform look was exactly what I had envisioned for my weekend fit. But it wasn't until I first debuted the boots, and was showered with compliments from both friends and strangers all night long, that I knew I'd found a hidden gem. I sent the link to anyone who wanted it (no gatekeeping around here, folks!), and soon enough, the boots became a key part of my friend group's going-out uniform — and they've rarely left our feet ever since.

What I love most about these boots is that they serve me just as well today as they did back in 2019. Whether I'm hitting the town, heading into the office, or grabbing lunch with a friend, the boots offer the perfect finishing touch to any outfit I create. Plus, they're comfortable (like, the most comfortable heeled shoe I've ever owned, comfortable), thanks to each boot's sturdy sole, elastic ankle, and padded inner lining. Instead of ending a day of wear rubbing my feet in agony, I normally find I could keep the boots on for even longer. 

It seems plenty of other shoppers have fallen in love with these boots in the years since I first purchased them, too. The shoes, which come in sizes 5.5 to 10, now have more than 1,900 five-star ratings on Amazon. Lucky for me (and now, you), chunky boots have yet to go out of style, and with prices starting at just $37, the Moda Chics booties offer the perfect opportunity to get in on the trend without breaking the bank. 

It's time to stop struggling at the hands (or rather, feet) of uncomfortable footwear. Join me in rocking these shoes for years to come by heading to Amazon and adding the Moda Chics Ankle Boots to your cart ASAP.
