Gals, get ready to make some room in your closet because slingbacks are officially back. Although they never necessarily went anywhere, they're now making a comeback that's better than ever thanks to the fashion industry's current obsession with all things old-school. While this season's iterations feel incredibly current, they still give off that '90s-chic, straight-from-Carrie-Bradshaw's-closet vibe, which, let's be real, is what we're all trying to master these days. But the best part about slingbacks, in our humble opinion, is the fact that they're also conveniently appropriate for the workplace. What's not to love about a trendy-meets-office-friendly shoe style? Nothing, that's what. So if you're looking to add a few pairs of this do-it-all shoe to your fall rotation, look no further than the list that lies ahead. We've rounded up an algorithm-approved selection of the best slingback heels on the market, all backed by user reviews, best-seller lists, editorial mentions, and more. Keep scrolling to shop the Top 10 styles and get ready to click-clack your way through the workday and happy hour, too—no need to change shoes. Opening image: charleskeith.com

Jeffery Campbell Talisman Slingback Pump
WHY YOU NEED IT: Complete with a cool-girl-approved geometric heel, these bold babies look just like the designer versions we've seen on our Instagram feeds and all over the street style scene. Even better, they'll only set you back $125.
Charles & Keith Low Block Heel Patent Slingback Pumps
WHERE TO WEAR: Thanks to the super sensible heel height, these slingbacks will be just as helpful in your off-duty wardrobe as they will in your working one.
HELPFUL TIP: While you can't go wrong with black or nude, the glossy green finish is just as versatile and even more statement-making.
Charles & Keith Square Toe Block Heel Slingback Pumps
Botkier Shayla Slingback Pump
BEST FOR: With a lightly padded footbed and ultra-soft suede, these slingbacks kill it in the comfort department. What's better than three-inch heels that feel like flats?
USERS SAID: "Wore these for a full day of running around the office straight out of the box. Comfortable all day, no pinching, and no blisters. They're a beautiful color and I received lots of compliments wearing them. Highly recommend!"
Charles & Keith Studded Pointed Slingbacks
WHY YOU NEED IT: These studded slingbacks are the perfect way to add a luxe touch to simple separates. Trust us—you'll be looking for excuses to wear them.
HELPFUL TIP: While every single color option is equally dreamy, we'd go with the on-trend snakeskin to make an even bigger statement.
Schutz Luriane Sandals
WHY YOU NEED IT: Available in a range of wear-with-anything shades, these elegant heels will save you next time you're stumped in the shoe department before a cocktail party.
LOVED FOR: Four-inch heel height aside, you won't believe how comfortable these kicks are.
Everlane The Square Toe Slingback
LOVED FOR: A square toe, circular heel, and geometric angles seriously amp up the '90s vibes of these slingbacks, but they still feel fresh and modern.
USERS SAID: "I absolutely love these shoes. I already own them in burnt orange and plan to buy more colors! They look so different from the other shoes I own, and they look great for work with a pair of pants or with jeans on the weekend. I love the slingback and the round heel—they look so classy!"
Tibi Lia Slingback Pumps
USERS SAID: "I’d been debating whether to get these for a while, and I'm so glad I did! They are chic, comfortable, and so versatile. They do run small—I’m normally a 7.5 and ordered an 8, and they fit like a glove."
AS SEEN ON: If these slingbacks look familiar, it's probably because they've been crawling the street style scene for a few seasons now. We love the way Caroline Daur styles them with bright and billowy dresses.
