Hasn't been too snowy in New England yet this year, but the few times I've gotten to wear them have been good. Definitely order a 1/2 size or full size larger than you think you need, esp if you plan of wearing thick socks underneath. Careful driving in them, I found it more difficult than expected to move my foot from gas to brake.

I ordered these for my husband who is a size 9 and they are so small that he could not even get his foot in them. He would need to go up to a size 11 the top is so small to put a foot in. They are nice looking boots but we are returning them due to the bad design.

Great boot. Good grip, comfortable, and looks good. I wore mine with my suit and got away with it! Slip-on style means that they don't fit tight around your calf/shin area. The loop at the back to help you get them off and on; could be bigger.

It has been difficult to find mid height, pull-on pac boots. It is difficult to find good non-lace up boots at all. These are warm, chunky, with a nice thick sole, and provide nice support. Nice midpoint somewhere between Sorells and the old Bean duck boots.

I wore these boots in the house for a week before I decided to keep them. they fit snug and are hard to slip on , but they feel good when walking around. they are well made and I'm sure they will feel better the longer I wear them.

Brands I'd also recommend: didn't find anything to compare this boot to

I haven't worn them out in the cold yet but wearing them around the house they sure were comfy. If you're a woman getting these boots, I recommend you get a size larger so you can wear socks and get your foot in.

I live in Ski Country, USA. The Colorado Rockies. I bought the Northface Artic Pull on so I could easily take off and put on when entering homes and offices. The boot is very warm and dry. It is easy enough to remove and put on. The tread is really good with great gripe in icy conditions. The fit is med. I have a narrow foot (a-aa) so it is a bit loose by manageable. I highly recommend the NFace Arctic Pull-on.

I ordered these boots for my boyfriend, and he absolutely loves them. He normally wears a size 12.5 or 13, so based on the reviews saying these run quite small, I ordered him a 14, which fits him perfectly. I would definitely recommend ordering a full size larger. He says they are also extremely warm and comfortable.

Reading all the reviews, I decided to go a full size larger than I normally would have. The toe box was tight and my heel was swimming. I almost gave up on these boots but I could not find another that I wanted to try more so I returned the full size larger boots to Zappos and ordered half a size larger. The half size larger boots were perfect! The toe box was still tight but the heel was finally snug and held my foot keeping them from moving around too much. I disc golf in the winter and have to have warm waterproof boots. I immediately took these boots out on a full day of disc golf in Wisconsin (Grey Wolf course) and was so warm and comfortable all day. I would recommend these boots highly. Just get the right size and wear thin socks as these boots are all the insulation that you will need.

I bought these for travel and work in Russia and Kazakhstan. They are extremely comfortable and warm. I usually wear a 10 1/2 and sometimes an 11. Based on reviews recommending to order a size larger I ordered an 11 1/2. They fit perfect.

My husband usually wears a size 8.5, so I ordered him a 9 to allow for thick socks. We had to return the 9's because they were too tight around the ankle area. We exchanged them for a 10 and they fit just fine -- comfortable with room for heavy socks.

I am always very satisfied with every product I get from Zappos, there fast and efficient delivery beats any other online company I have done business with prior. The north face snow boots I received were exactly as described waterproof and very comfortable.

These boots were aChristmas gift for my son-in-law. He absolutely "Loves Them". I did order a little larger than his shoe size. Really warm and comfortable for outdoors. Not for indoor use, too warm! In this case, felt true to the size I ordered but may run a little small.

We moved to WA and my husband wanted a pair of boots he could easily put on when heading out in the rain. We purchased these and although you need to break them in, he really likes them. Outside of breaking them in, they are warm, comfortable and easy to pull on with the rear strap.

Went from a 10 1/2 to a 13 and these simply put are the best boots I have ever worn. All the negative feedback on the boots come in as assets once you get the right size. The fit, grip, heel snug and room in toe cavity. Glad I experimented with size and did not run away. FYI check temp. rating under info tab on all boots / shoe like boots; critical! Also note that I have reversed my opinion now that I have the correct size.

Great boots. Warm and fit well. Speaking of fit, do Do follow the multiple recommendations of getting a full size larger. I usually wear a 10 which are a hair roomy for me, 11's in this boot fit perfect.

I have the original version of these boots and they have worn well. I wear them to take my dogs out as they are relatively easy-on/easy-off. They have been warm enough for the harsh Chicago winters. I am in the market for a new pair as my old pair has worn out from inside out.

Even after ordering a whole size larger, this boot was too tight in the instep. My husband's feet fell asleep while wearing them sitting on the couch.

Wow. I was really looking forward to these boots. I am a 10.5 medium width foot. So I followed the reviews and ordered a full size larger. Simply put they are harder to put on than a ski boot, and yes feel like a ski boot once on. So much for the slip on ease and comfort factor. Since they are a North Face product, yet fit too tight, with the other reviewers exact description of jammed toe box cramped heel, I will try once more, except at 2 sizes larger. Thus up to a 12 1/2 size. I want them to work, because I believe in the other benefits of the boots. However if the next full size up is such a struggle to even put the boots on, I will have to change brands and start again. I live in chicago and need what these boots offer or tout, but can't struggle with putting on a "slip-on" boot this much

Way too tight in the toes, very uncomfortable. Bought a half size big and the rest of the boot felt fine. Absolutely smashes your toes from the top. Completely unwearable.

I have an older version of these. After one year the inside liner where your heel slides in and out wears out and the boot becomes unbearable to wear.

We purchased these boots for a Christmas present for my husband. He wore them two times. The second time he wore them the whole toe busted open. Very disappointed for the price I paid. These shoes were terribly made or something is wrong with the material. He had a previous pair that was fine, so I was shocked to see this happen. Sadly, I am afraid to spend that much money to buy another pair.
