Love: Nokian by Julia Lundsten

Rubber boot season is upon us (queue massive sigh here.) This year, instead of wearing Walmart rubber boots (that crack after a few months) or Hunter boots (overpriced and no longer manufactured to the high standards they used to be known for) I’ll be wearing Nokian by Julia Lundsten, who is the founder and designer of Finsk shoes.

As you all know, Finsk is one of my favourite footwear brands. What you probably don’t know is that Nokian is a very famous Finnish company that makes superb rubber boots. They are probably more famous for their mobile phones (you’ve heard of Nokia, right? It is the same company…) but now the company has split and Nokian primarily makes rubber boots.

Anyway, the boots are not only super high quality (meaning they won’t crack and leak like Walmart and hunters) but they are also very cool. I love the Knee High Wedge Boot for those times you want to be fashionable and dry, the Wool Lined Biker Style Boot for dog walks in cold weather and the Wedge Ankle Boots with Laces because they look like a rubber boot meets a hiking boot meets a high top.

Priced at $150-$200, these are the best way to stay dry and pretty this fall. Buy them here.

    These look great. You posted them right in time for tonight’s rainfall warning too.

    For quality wellies, I’ve heard terrific things about Aigle. I also like Joules; reviews online are mixed, but the premium ones are thickly lined with a sturdy tread and I’ve had them for a couple years now (although I don’t wear them that often).

    I’ve heard good things about those brands, too, but Nokian really does do excellent quality. And now that the design component is sorted – I’m leaning towards these ones for sure!

    That second pair with the laces is beautiful! I’m wondering if they would be good for my first toronto winter. I’m looking at winter boot options right now and getting pretty overwhelmed by the choices.

    The wool laced ones might be better for a cold winter, unless you get the lace ones and wear thick wool or cashmere socks. The quality of the rubber will be excellent in cold weather.

    I meant the wool lined one! Not laced.

    Haha that’s what I guessed! Yeah, even though I loved the ones with laces the wool ones would be better, and just easier to slip on/off without worrying about whether or not i have the right socks. If i’m gonna be spending a ton of money on winter boots anyway I would definitely prefer to spend it on a company like this one.

    Agree, you’ll be supporting two great businesses!
