When I think about my idea of the perfect boot style in my wardrobe, a solid pair of waterproof boots ranks high on my list. It's this specific shoe silhouette that makes getting through unpredictable weather that much easier. After all, the thought of having to navigate through rain or snow with footwear that's not weather resistant just doesn't seem that desirable. So with that in mind, I thought I'd do a deep dive through one of my favorite stores, Nordstrom, to uncover the absolute best waterproof boots out there if you're interested in adding a new pair to your arsenal.
To uncover the "best" styles, I scrolled through the review sections of a range of silhouettes and pulled out the boots that have especially positive reviews with over four stars out of five. Keep scrolling to check out waterproof boots in a variety of styles that could be worth noting.
"This is my first pair of Timberlands. I knew I needed a good quality pair of waterproof boots but wasn't sure which brand to go with. I stumbled across these and decided to try them on a whim, and I am so glad I did. It's durable and truly waterproof. I wear these boots almost every day now. Cannot recommend these enough." — Nordstrom reviewer
"These boots are super comfortable and very stylish. Honestly, I feel like a million bucks when I wear them. I agree that sizing up a half size is a good idea if you have wider feet, deal with bunion issues, or want to wear thicker socks." — Nordstrom reviewer
"I ordered several pairs of over-the-knee boots, and these were the winners. I have had them for about two months and absolutely love them. I have to keep myself from wearing them daily; they are incredibly comfortable and stylish." — Nordstrom reviewer
"Okay, first off, I had no idea how hard it would be to find a quality pair of rain boots. After doing a fair amount of research, I decided to try Moncler mostly for quality reasons. And they sure did not disappoint—beautiful pair with even stitching, thick rubber sole, and cushion interior." — Nordstrom reviewer
"I was looking for something taller than the average Chelsea boot height, and these are it! You can tell in the picture that they are longer than 'regular' boots. They are comfortable and fit perfectly, especially for the price." — Nordstrom reviewer
"These are surprisingly lightweight for a bulky boot! I like how high up the calf they go so that I have the styling option to tuck in my pant legs or not. They are a bit roomy, but I don't mind because I fully expect to wear thicker socks when wearing these when the temperature drops." — Nordstrom reviewer
"I got these for work now that it's getting harder to wear opened-toed shoes. I loved that they were waterproof too! I live in Chicago, where you never know when it will start pouring, so that was a plus! They are super comfortable. I wore them to work all day walking around and didn't have any problems at all." — Nordstrom reviewer
