Nordstrom’s Toughest-Looking Boots

October 8, 2012 • By Karla Mae

With the return of grunge, tough is the main trend in boots this season. But that doesn’t mean we have to revert to mangy, old styles. Big brands and designers are catching on, and their mix of chic elements and heavy designs gives us a modern take on feminine fashion.

Check out some of the breakthrough boots we found at Nordstrom, and name your tough pick for the season!


Steve Madden Fraankie Boots, $149.95

A studded buckle strap adds bling to these pebbled leather boots with distressed soles. Pretty!


Vera Wang Footwear Marilyn Boots, $395

A huge favorite among Nordstrom buyers, this pair of tall chunky heeled leather boots has a fold-over feature for an architectural take on fashion.


Dolce Vita Mella Boots, $258.95

A pair of Western boots does the trendy moto style with its embellishment of brushed studs.


Valentino Ruffle Boots, $1,295

These ruffled lace-up flat boots get even lovelier with golden eyelets and exposed side zips.
