The 19 Best Chelsea Boots for Women Are Hiding at Nordstrom

There are plenty—and we really do mean plenty—of new fall 2019 boot trends to relish in. Slouchy boots have been reigning supreme on the street style scene for weeks, cowboy boots are back and bolder than ever, snakeskin booties are the best way to wear the ever-popular animal-print trend come autumn, and square-toe boots that hearken back to the '90s have become increasingly sought-after. But regardless of all the new, fresh footwear crazes the season has ushered in, there's one timeless style that simply can't be beat: Chelsea boots.

The appeal of Chelsea boots is in the ever-versatile, no-fuss design. They're close-fitting, hit at the ankle, and have that signature elastic side panel that's both practical and stylish. They also tend to have a loop or stretchy fabric on the back, both design details that make slipping in and out of them incredibly easy, which is a huge plus because, well, no one likes trying to cram their foot into a boot, especially when rushing out the door.
