Buying shoes can be tricky.

One size too big and your feet will slip out while walking and if it's too small, say hello to awful blisters. So we get why you're a little apprehensive about purchasing shoes online.

That being said, some shoes are love at first sight. We've discovered a handful of online shoe vendors who will talk you through every step and size chart to make your shopping experience that much better AND they have super cute kicks!

Here's our pick of the top 5 on-trend footwear Facebook pages that you MUST check out for some retail therapy:

Soma

Soma's metallic fringe slides started our love affair with this shoe brand and it's blossomed into an unhealthy obsession.

Admittedly, their designs are heavily inspired (like the similarities with Nicholas Kirkwood flats on the left) but we're looking at it as more of a splurge vs steal scenario

Chapter 13

You know what they say: you get what you pay for. Even though these babies are a little on the steep side where the price is concerned, we can vouch for the quality 100%. The material, the embroidery, all of it is top notch and worth every penny.

Miaasa

A new kid on the block, Miaasa shoes had everyone buzzing when they unveiled their YOLO espadrilles. While we like those too, we're really digging some of the minimalistic slides they have in their collection.

Zahra Habib Footwear

Zahra Habib stocks some exquisite hand-crafted sandals using silks, satins and leather decorated with swoon-worthy Swarovski crystals and other embellishments. We particularly dig her eccentric animal and insect themed flats.

Penguin Pop

We like our shoes to make a statement and what better way to do that than with customized hand-painted kicks? The artwork is all done by Saadia Gardezi herself who transforms staid plain canvas shoes into something special, quirky and utterly fashionable.
