After ruining countless pairs of shoes in harsh conditions, we’ve been on a massive hunt for a waterproof style that will last for seasons to come.

Crafted with 100 percent waterproof suede, we can step out in confidence to tackle the worst weather conditions in style. Designed with just under a 2-inch heel, we love that this design offers a subtle lift to heighten our look without the pain of traditional stilettos. This style provides an extra level of comfort for a seamless fit with every wear. There’s also a touch of smart-styling with a zipper-front that sets the tone for a minimalist vibe. Our favorite detail? Blondo’s AquaProtect technology! Not only does this innovative pair protect our feet from the elements, but we also don’t have to worry about those annoying wet marks and salt stains.

Flaunting a gorgeous blush pink hue, this sweet and playful pair will add a chic accent to all of our looks and we plan to get plenty of wear with this year-round style. With just a $100 price tag at Nordstrom, this budget-friendly pick is quite the steal! While many waterproof styles can easily set us back a couple hundred bucks, this pick is a nice change of pace. We never miss an opportunity to hit the streets in style and we plan on wearing these sneaker booties with distressed jeans, a cashmere cowlneck sweater, a topcoat and a hobo bag for a street style win! Thinking of a work-ready ensemble? We’re pulling out corduroy skinny pants, a thermal turtleneck, boyfriend blazer and a tote bag for a no-fuss stylish finish. We can dress up these sneaker booties with moto leggings, a bodysuit, a leather jacket and a cross-body bag to enjoy a night out on the town. We can even bring our athleisure style to life with joggers, a V-neck thermal top, a longline jean jacket with fleece lining and a shoulder bag for a laidback staple. No matter how we style these kicks for our workwear, casual and dressy ensembles, we will never miss a style beat! Sizes 5 to 12 are currently available. With a great price point and versatile style, there is no telling how long these bad boys will remain in stock. There is nothing worse than facing wet weather with the wrong footwear and this offering will certainly make our lives easier.

Rainy days can really put a damper on our style. Trying to incorporate classic clunky rain boots into a decent outfit is a marathon we really hate running in the mornings. Lugging around an additional pair of shoes in addition to our favorite pointed-toe flats or suede ankle booties we normally wear is also a pain. On the flip side, we are certainly would never risk ruining our favorite shoes in the rain so we end up settling for rubber boots and pushing our favorite outfit back a couple of days. [ami-related id=”- Click to search articles -” url=”https://www.usmagazine.com/shop-with-us/news/vince-camuto-nordstrom-sale/” title=”Shop With Us: The Vince Camuto Sale at Nordstrom Is Full of Chic Must-Haves” target=”_blank” inset=”true”] But we just found a secret weapon to beat the weather in style. The Blondo brand creates footwear that aims to be stylish and entirely waterproof. Their gorgeous shoe designs could end our awkward relationship with the rubber clunkers and eliminate lost street style opportunities on soggy days. Each Blondo shoe is authenticated by the AquaProtect seal, which means they are made with high-quality waterproof leathers and other materials meant to seal our feet in and keep the moisture out. Not only is the leather waterproof, but it is also is designed to prevent the harmful effects of calcium/salt which can often erode the material over time. We also love that all Blondo footwear has a regular sole plus a removable activated carbon foam insole meant to provide comfort, eliminate odor and give extra warmth during chillier months. If that isn’t enough cushion, an extra gel pad at the heel puts the icing on the cake for all-day wearability. But we know what you really want to know: Are these waterproof shoes actually cute? The answer is yes and we need so many pairs. Check out the Kali Waterproof Over the Knee Boot, which is a fashionable faux suede tall boot we can wear with so many different clothes in our closet. See it: Scoop up the Blondo Kali Waterproof Over-the-Knee-Boot while it is available in select sizes for $200. Traditionally, we would not even think of whipping out suede or faux suede shoes on a rainy day since water could ruin them forever. Strutting down the streets in these faux suede beauties, no one would ever guess that they are actually waterproof and will be just as cute and wearable when the rain stops! The Kali design has a three-inch chunky heel, a 20-inch boot shaft which gives the over-the-knee height we love and an easy pull-on style thanks to simple ties at the back. Shoppers who own these boots vouched for their comfort and were also excited by how well they fit. People seemed especially into the fact that this style has a narrow toe design yet it doesn’t fit too tight. One reviewer shared that the boots were the perfect choice after a long hunt for options that fit over her calves. Another expressed that she liked these a little better than some more expensive boots she already owned. On days when we want to pull off a similar look but prefer not to wear a heel, there is the Blondo Ethos Over-the-Knee Waterproof Stretch Boot. See it: Grab the Blondo Ethos Over-the-Knee Waterproof Stretch Boot while it’s available in select sizes for $225. Like the Kali boot, this Ethos version is an easy slip-on pick. An incredibly short heel makes it even more walkable and wearable for long durations. Ruffles along the side give the boots an extra touch of personality and add just the right detail to make the boots stand out. We also adore that this Blondo boot has a memory foam-cushioned footbed. Translation: We’ll be looking like bombshells in this boot and practically walking on clouds! We will be wearing these with a pair of skinny jeans and a frilly blouse to play up the ruffle detail on the boots. Anytime we want to step out in something other than classic black, we can pull on these gray Blondo Danny Over-the-Knee Boots that allow Us to stick within the neutral hue family while switching up our look. See it: Get the Blondo Danny Over-the-Knee Boot (marked down 35 percent off its original $260, now $170) while it’s available in select sizes. The Danny boot also boasts a very short heel and a pull-on style. We love how this version has an asymmetrical shaft design that gives it a slightly trendier look. Shoppers who own these boots say that they’re great for walking and often receive lots of compliments on this style. People bought these boots for themselves but also gifted them to others. These boots are selling out and quickly. Make a quick move if you want to snag that must-have pair.
