I think it's safe to establish that we love a good winter boot here at Yahoo Canada. As a group of (mostly) outdoor-loving Canadians, we tend to know what's worth your dollar regarding winter apparel.
Deemed the "best purchase" of winter by reviewers, the waterproof boots are "perfect" for icy, cold weather — and they're less than $200.
Blondo's Hallie booties are designed using the brand's AquaProtect seal guard, which protects the leather and other materials against the harmful effects of calcium and salt. For those trudging through slush and snow, your boots will continue to look good even when the forecast does not.
The boots have a cozy sock-like wool cuff and a treaded outsole to provide traction on slippery surfaces. On Nordstrom Canada, the shoes are available in black leather; on the American site, shoppers have the additional option of a bone leather style.
'Best purchase of the season'
The versatile Blondo boots have become a top choice among Nordstrom shoppers, earning an average rating of 4.5 stars.
According to one reviewer, the waterproof boots are "worth every penny."
"If you are considering these boots — buy them!" they write. During an impromptu snowshoeing trip, the reviewer says their Hallie boots "held up better than [their] friends' legit snow boots."
"All I had to do was kick the snow off, and I was ready to wear them to a nice dinner afterwards," they say. The "fashion and function of these boots are incredible for the price," calling them a "must-have" for winter weather.
Another shopper has dubbed the shoes their "best purchase of the season."
"I can walk all day in [them]," they write. They're the "most comfortable boots I own" and the only shoes "I want to wear now."
'Most comfortable boots I own'
Blondo's Hallie boots are "perfect," and the quality is "outstanding," lauds a third reviewer. "Love them!"
While reviewers almost unanimously agree the boots are "so comfortable" and hold up to cold weather, several shoppers note they fit snugly.
"I did size up 1/2 size as suggested, and they are perfect," writes one reviewer.
The boots are "so cute," but you need to "go up 1/2 a size," echoes another. "Otherwise, [they're] perfect."
Nordstrom shoppers have dubbed the Blondo Hallie Booties a "must-have" for winter weather. Reviewers almost unanimously agree the shoes are comfortable, stylish and durable, with several shoppers praising them as the "perfect" winter shoe. However, they do tend to run small, so you may want to order a half size up.
