As a shopping editor, I find few things more exciting than a good end-of-season sale, especially if it's at Nordstrom.

Now through Feb. 27, the retailer is offering up to 60 per cent off some of its best-selling brands, including UGG, Tory Burch, Wacoal and more.

And while there are (literally) thousands of deals worth checking out, there's one that I'm more than a little excited about: the Blondo Dagger Waterproof Boots (shop here in Canada, shop here in the U.S.)

The details

The wet and slushy conditions of spring 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 five colours at Nordstrom U.S., including sand, taupe and wine, while Canadians can snap them up in taupe.

What shoppers are saying

With more than 100 reviews behind, Nordstrom shoppers have dubbed the Blondo Dagger boots the "perfect, versatile boots" and given them a solid 4.4-star rating.

They're my "new favourite boots," raves one reviewer. "They are super stylish and unbelievably comfortable. I bought them in black, but I'm definitely going to get another colour."

"They are very comfortable! There was no breaking-in needed," swears another shopper. "I walked around 10 miles a day in these bad boys, and I looked good doing it all while staying dry."

"These boots make me feel powerful," says another reviewer. "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."

However, while reviews for the Blondo Dagger boots are largely positive, some shoppers say the "ankle is way too tight."

"I would have loved these boots if it weren’t for the tight ankle," writes one shopper. "Despite that, they were extremely comfortable and gorgeous, but I can’t stand a tight ankle."

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


Nordstrom shoppers seem to agree that these $125 CAD/$100 USD leather ankle boots are comfortable, stylish and make you "feel unstoppable."

However, as they do tend to run small, you may want to order a half size up — especially if you have a larger ankle.
