Ask us every year what we’re excited to buy for fall, and every year we’ll say, “a new pair of boots.” And now that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has arrived, we plan to take full advantage of all the awesome deals by refreshing our shoe collection, boots included. This year, the sale began on July 6 (for Icon status card holders) and will continue opening up to more tiers leading until July 15, when the sale becomes available to anyone and everyone. If you’re not a Nordstrom card holder or Nordy Club member (or even if you are) we highly suggest adding these boots and booties to your wishlist so you can snap them up ASAP when you can.

1. Caslon Miller Water Resistant Chelsea Boot
These easy, pull-on booties are water resistant, so you don’t have to worry about unexpected rain showers.
2. Hunter Original Waterproof Chelsea Rain Boot
Swap your clunky Wellingtons for an easier Chelsea style that’s every bit as weatherproof and infinitely more chic.
3. Allsaints Combat Boot
The light color of these steppers softens them up a little, while still being every bit as badass as your typical combat boot.
4. Bp. Brynne Bootie
We are totally loving the juxtaposition of the soft faux suede and the subtle croc print of these cutie booties. We especially appreciate the block heel, so you can add some height without having to worry about rolling your ankles.
5. Steve Madden Holley Chelsea Boot
This is an over-exaggerated Chelsea boot for the statement-makers among us. It’s got a chunky platform heel that’s super trendy right now and ribbed stretchy detailing around the ankle for added comfort and movability.
6. Dolce Vita Western Boot
The Western trend continues to be all the rage, and this is the perfect boot for those of us who are looking to dip our toes in. The silver studs add a fun modern twist, but the classic pointed toe keeps ‘em authentic. Time to buy that Stagecoach ticket!
7. Hunter Original Play Rain Boot
These might look like classic rain boots at first glance, but they’ve got a modern speckled platform set on a lugged sole for traction–and style. They’re a pull-on style, so simply slip these babies on during a rainy day and get ready to make a splash.
8. Frye Carson Piping Bootie
The esteemed Frye brand was originally founded in 1863, so it’s had more than 150 years to perfect its luxe leather-goods. Frye boots are known for their durability, and these western-inspired booties are no different, making them a great option for languid country strolls and city speed-walks alike.
9. Matisse Carson Western Boot
These two-tone booties are definitely twice the fun of a simple solid option.
10. Ugg Hapsburg Waterproof Duck Boot
The ultimate cozy autumn shoe, these shearling-adorned duck boots will always be in style. Plus, they’re waterproof and lined with UGG’s ultra-soft faux shearling material, so they’ll keep your toesies cozy and dry no matter the weather.
11. Sorel Lennox Hiker Boot
While we’re on the topic of inclement weather, why not pick up a pair of cute winter boots while they’re more than 30 percent off and before the mad dash of other shoppers finally get the memo come October?
12. Cole Haan Vestry Bootie
Your new favorite work bootie has arrived (and it’s $50 off). These glazed beauties combine elegance and comfort with a sexy notched top-line, pointed toe and plush cushioning for arch support. You can be on your feet all day long with these (and you might want to, if only to show these heels off).
13. Sarto By Franco Sarto Balinna Platform Loafer
Loafers have been around for ages, but the style is particularly popular right now. This glossy, tasseled style by Franco Sarto is perfect if you’re looking to try out the trend for a price that won’t break the bank (they’re less than $100). Not to mention, they’re cushioned for arch support.
14. Timberland Cervinia Valley Chelsea Boot
Timberland’s take on the classic Chelsea boot. It’s Timberland, so you don’t have to question the craftsmanship or the quality. Come rain or shine, just slip ‘em on with the help of the built-in back pull-tab and get ready to command the day.
15. La Canadienne Savoy Riding Boot
These sleek riding boots are guaranteed to give you a confidence boost. They’re made of fine waterproof leather to keep you stylish and dry, and they’re furnished with a breathable lining and a plush, memory foam cushioning. Also, for what it’s worth, La Canadienne boots are rarely available for less than $500, so if you’ve been hoping to snag a pair for less, now’s your chance.
16. Cole Haan Vandam Bootie
Don’t be fooled by the skinny kitten heel, with Cole Haan’s Signature Grand360 foam cushioning, these booties are incredibly comfortable and walkable—even after a full day at the office.
17. Circus By Sam Edelman Layla Bootie
Say hello to the trendy square-toe (because you’re going to be seeing it for a while). These croc-embossed booties play around with a bold block heel for a look that's both retro and of the moment.
18. Calvin Klein Rania Boot
We’re over the moon for these over-the-knee boots—they give major Bond Girl energy. Best part? They’re set on a super low heel, so these boots really were made for walking (and looking fabulous, of course).
19. Dolce Vita Solida Western Boot
Cue Kacey Musgraves' hit song "High Horse," because these blazing boots belong on a stallion in the Wild West. The Cowgirl aesthetic is one of our favorite revamped trends, and this is about as authentic to the vibe as you can get, with burning flames stitched into the leather and a low woodgrain heel. When we say "Yee," you say "Haw!"
20. Charles By Charles David Matera Knit Bootie
These knit booties remind us of the iconic Balenciaga sock boot. Slip these on like a second pair of socks and start your day with the right foot forward.
