Not to stress you out or anything, but winter is well on its way, meaning that before you know it, you'll be ankle-deep in snow, slush, and icy mystery water of all kinds. If you live where the sun shines 24/7 (L.A., we're looking at you), then the desperate need to stock up on the best winter boots might not make sense to you. To those of you who know what it's like to look outside, see the snow falling, and realize your weather-proof boots are nowhere to be found, you get it. The stress is real and there's no way you're about to mess up all of your favorite suede boots just for a quick jaunt around the block. No, not at all. New winter boots are in order.
To ensure you are proactively prepared with the correct seasonal footwear, I scrolled through all of the best winter boots at Nordstrom and narrowed down my favorites to an impressive 21. I don't know about you, but when I think of winter boots, I think of something unattractive, bulky, and unstylish. However, thanks to the wide variety at the beloved retailer, we have 21 pairs of winter boots that prove footwear can indeed be stylish and practical all at once.
