We already detailed our search for the perfect black handbag, and found it. It's Celine and I can't afford it. But what about the even more important–especially as cold weather approaches–perfect black bootie?

They're what brands keep producing season after season, even when their collections change. And they're something just about everyone either has or wants and maybe even needs. I personally have about five pairs of black booties and I still don't feel like I've found the perfect pair–I'm starting to feel like the problem is similar to the handbag one–my reluctance to spend over $400. Though, after pouring over ALL the black booties (seriously all of them), I'm starting to think it might be worth it.

Anyway, click through for our comprehensive rundown of all the best black booties in a variety of styles and price ranges. Hopefully it will provide an end to your search for the perfect black bootie.
