With the official start to spring just a few short days away, there’s one must have that you’ll want on hand: a pair of trusty rain boots to weather the season.

Hunter is known for their iconic take on weatherproof boots, which are beloved by everyone from Kate Moss to Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. In fact, the Duchess was recently spotted in a pair of their Women's Original Tall Rain Boots while giving a tour of her garden to Oprah Winfrey.

Though the boots are well-loved by shoppers and celebrities, their steep price tag isn’t always in the budget. That’s why whenever we find a pair of classic Hunter boots on sale, it’s worth sharing the news.

The details

Right now you can save 40 per cent on one pair of the Original Short Rain Boot, which have just been included in a set of new markdowns on the Nordstrom website. Originally retailing for $145, they’re now marked down to $87.

What shoppers are saying

As a top pick for shoppers who find the tall Hunter boots too snug around the calves, the 'Original Short' Rain Boot has earned a 4.6 star rating from customers online.

“These are the perfect boots for muddy spring weather — cute AND practical," one reviewer shared. “I have a pair of knee-high Hunters that are so tight I can only wear them with leggings, even though I have skinny legs. The mid-calf height is roomier and more comfortable.”

“Love this rain boot. I had originally gotten the original-tall and while it fit fine through the calf and the high gloss was cute, it was a little too much boot for me,” noted another. “I wanted something simpler, easier, and less flashy. So I got the short and it's perfect.”

Since they’re only available in whole sizes, the brand recommends that half sizes go with one size up for the best fit. You can bet that these sale boots won’t stick around for too long, so shop them along with more new markdowns from Nordstrom below.
