There is nothing worse than feet that feel frozen on a cold winter day. Cozy boots are the answer, but you don't have to break the bank to keep those tootsies warm.

Style expert Lilliana Vazquez offered lower-priced options on TODAY Wednesday with her "Luxe for Less" segment.

"When you think about these warm and fuzzy boots, some of them retail up to $300," she told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. "Everything we found here is under $50."

On, you can search a section devoted to fuzzy boots. Among Vazquez's picks: A tall model called the Fraser, and the Calgary, a shorter boot with fringe.

"I particularly like the little fringe ones," she said. "They're very in this season."

The next group came from Kohl's, and the boots had a slipper style that can be worn inside or out. They come in winter white, and a red-and-black buffalo check, too. "I love the idea of doing prints for the winter," Vazquez said.

Ankle boots work well on shorter women. Vazquez's pick for this style was a short boot from Kmart that comes in three colors.

"When you're a little bit shorter, sometimes the ones that go all the way to the knee make you even shorter," Vazquez said, "so I like an ankle boot version."

And to mix it up a bit, from Target, her cool picks were a higher-cut sneaker with a cozy inside, and a classic mountaineering boot.
