When it comes to weatherproof footwear, you can never go wrong with a classic pair of Chelsea boots. The style is a perennial favourite, and Nordstrom just unveiled a new version that you're not going to want to miss.
An updated take on their Caslon Miller Water Resistant Chelsea Boot, the Miller 2 Water Resistant Boot (shop them in Canada here, shop them in the U.S. here) has been winning over Nordstrom shoppers thanks to their practical, water-resistant design.
The boots are already selling quickly, so read on to see if they are worth adding to your next Nordstrom order.
Like the previous version of the Miller boots, this updated take on the classic Chelsea boot combines your choice of leather or suede uppers with a platform lug sole. They're designed to be water-resistant, while also providing traction on slippery surfaces thanks to their thick rubber sole.
These boots do differ from their predecessor though, as they have a side zipper closure instead of two elastic panels for taking them on and off. This design change also offers more protection from wet weather, keeping your feet warm and dry in rain or snow.
You can shop them in Canada for $130 CAD in three neutral shades, while shoppers in the U.S. can snag these popular boots on sale for $70 USD.
'Stylish and practical for winter'
These popular boots have become an instant hit with Nordstrom shoppers, and have racked up a 4.2-star average rating from customers.
Reviewers have found that these boots are "stylish and practical for winter" and are "very comfortable" for all day wear.
"I was looking for a comfortable, light Chelsea boot and this fits the bill. It fits true size and doesn’t require any break in time," reads one review.
"I live in an area that gets cold and wet in the winter but I didn’t want big, heavy snow boots. Hard to believe these are water resistant and so inexpensive for the quality," reads another.
If you're on the fence about deciding which size to order, shoppers suggest ordering a half-size up if you have wider feet.
"I liked the looks and price of these. I ordered my regular size 9 [but] they are a little tight and small for my slightly wider foot," shared one reviewer.
"FYI my fellow wide foot sisters, these boots are not for us!" added another.
Given that the original Caslon Miller boots quickly sold out, you can bet that this new and updated version is sure to follow suit. They are a great choice for winter weather, as they keep feet warm and dry even in the rain and snow.
Since the boots are on sale at Nordstrom in the U.S., sizes are already beginning to sell out, so be sure to add them to your cart while you still can.
