Aquatalia by Marvin K Minnow Boots

Have been looking for a pair of suede knee-high riding boots for a while. Finally got a pair from Nordstrom last week.


Aquatalia by Marvin K Minnow (buy here)
p.s. please excuse my puppy's "chicken" toy

I have a pair of Aquatalia from years ago and absolutely loving them. They are truly weatherproof and when you live in a place where from Christmas on till April, inches of snow on the ground, these boots are reliable.

I like these as it got a bit of heel. Very little bit but making them a wee-bit more dressy than the other suede boots I have been considering.


The ankle part is leather, making these much easier to maintain. As we all know, when you drive with these, the ankle part is the fastest worn-out part. 



I read a lot of reviews on these and they truly run small and narrow. So I sized up a full size to 8.5 ( I am regularly 7.5). When buying zip-up knee high boots, I am always worried that the zipper won't zip up. These ones are really made for skinny calves and I'm so glad I sized up and I can tug in my Old Navy skinny cords in these. Great thing about these are there is a bit of elastic on the opening part of the shaft making it easier to zip up the widest part of your calves.



First time I bought from Nordstrom online. I ordered them last Tuesday and I got them within 1 week. For international orders, Nordstrom contracts their orders to FiftyOne(a global e-commerce company). Nordstrom will ship the order by DHL to FiftyOne and then they will ship the order by Canada Post with tracking. The duty/brokerage fee will be added to your order so no surprise tax or duty charges will be expected when you pick up your parcel.

    1. a lot of the weatherproof boots may be very functional but not stylish. I find Aquatalia are fairly stylish and they are real winter boots.

    1. yes, they are very comfy. I'm so glad I sized up on these as they fit fairly narrow. Now that I have bought from Nordstrom and a happy camper, I know I will buy a lot more from them :)
