tipsy drunken outings with work to festive family gatherings, the need for the perfect party shoe is great.
It's so great in fact that we've spent many a lunch hour and Saturday afternoon perusing the high street just so we can find the ideal bit of footwear.
Not only do these shoes need to take us through the season (i.e. they have to be durable and comfortable) but they also need to be fancy enough to elicit a few 'oohs' and 'aaahs'.
To save you this pain, we've hunted down 30 pairs of stylish party heels, flats and boots that are ideal for the coming months.
Oh and they're all under £100, so that leaves you enough cash to get the drinks in. Ours is a Snowball, if you're asking.
