Try as we might, we can't avoid it for much longer: Cold weather is coming.

While the thought of 40-below days already puts a shiver down my spine, there is one silver lining to the impending cold: Fall fashion.

From dresses to jackets, now is the perfect time to stock up on all things autumn, including fall 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, here in the U.S.) are the "perfect" shoes for cold weather.

The details

These cozy Chelsea boots combine a sock-like wool cuff with a leather foot for an eye-catching look. They're designed to be lightweight while still providing traction on slippery surfaces thanks to a thick rubber lug sole.

Like all Blondo boots, the Hallie features a waterproof design. They use the brand's signature AquaProtect seal that guards materials against water and the harmful effects of calcium and salt.

'Comfortable right out of the box'

The Hallie boots are on their way to becoming a fall staple for Nordstrom shoppers, with an average rating of 4.5 stars and dozens of reviews singing their praises.

They are "very warm and comfortable," according to one shopper. The boots are "super easy to get on and off" and "look great."

"If you are considering these boots — buy them," writes another. They "[hold] up better than legit snow boots" and "didn't need to be broken in."

The "fashion and function" of the Blondo boots are "incredible for the price," they continue. They're a "must-have for winter trips where you want to be comfy while still looking cute."

'Perfection'

Blondo's Hallie boots are "perfection" and "were comfortable right out of the box," lauds a third shopper. The "quality is outstanding," they write. "These look amazing with jeans, skirts, dresses, leggings and trousers. Go for it!"

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."

Verdict

While we're still a ways out from true winter weather, Nordstrom shoppers call Blondo's waterproof Hallie boots a must-have for cold weather. Reviewers almost unanimously agree the shoes are comfortable, stylish, and durable, with several shoppers praising them as the "perfect" footwear. However, they do tend to run small, so you may want to order a half size up.
