Try as we might, we can no longer avoid it: Winter is here.

While we shudder at the thought of frigid temperatures, there's one silver lining to the cold weather: we can finally wear our favourite winter boots.

Speaking of, we may have just found the perfect pair. With a rugged lug sole and waterproof exterior, Nordstrom shoppers say these Blondo ankle boots (shop here in Canada, shop here in the U.S.) are the "perfect versatile boot" of the season.

The details

Wet and snowy conditions are no match for these stylish Blondo boots, thanks to their rugged sole and weather-resistant exterior.

Blondo's AquaProtect seal shields leather against water and the harmful effects of calcium and salt, making them a great choice for rain, puddles and slushy conditions. The boots come with a lugged platform sole and a two 1/4-inch heel to keep you grounded on icy sidewalks.

The Blondo Dagger boots are available in six colours at Nordstrom U.S. and two colours at Nordstrom Canada: black and taupe.

What shoppers are saying

While the Blondo boots have only collected a handful of reviews, Nordstrom shoppers have dubbed them the "perfect versatile boots" and they've earned an average rating of 4.2 stars.

"If you want to feel unstoppable, keep your feet comfy and dry (they're waterproof!), and look trendy and cute, these boots are for you," raves one Nordstrom reviewer.

"They are super stylish and unbelievably comfortable," writes another. "I bought the black, but I'm definitely going to get another colour. These are an absolute must-try."

A third shopper called the Blondo boots the "best casual booties I've owned in a while."

"The boots fit great, and [there is] no need to break them in," they write.

However, a handful of shoppers noted that the boots fit "narrow at the ankle," and as a result, were not comfortable.

"My ankles could not move, and no amount of breaking them in would change how tight they were," writes one reviewer.

"The leather is stiff and too tight at my ankle," echos another. "No flexibility for movement at all."

Additionally, Nordstrom recommends ordering half a size up in the boots as they do tend to run small.


Since these boots are currently on sale for more than 30 per cent off, now is the perfect time to treat yourself to a new pair of "super stylish and unbelievably comfortable" boots for the season. However, keep in mind that several Nordstrom shoppers noted the ankle fits snug, so choose your size accordingly.
