Great pair of boots. Very comfortable and toasty warm. I bought 1/2 size larger based on other reviews and these fit perfectly.

Bought it for my husband as a Christmas present. Based on the reviews, I got him a half size larger but it still felt small. I would recommend getting it a full size larger than the one you usually wear. Kept his feet very warm, and the boots looked very rugged. A must have for winter.

Bought this for my b/f and he loves them. He wears 10.5 regular shoe size but based on the feedback, I got the size 11 and they fit just fine socks.

I bought these boots for my son that works for a ski resort in NC. He said they are very warm and durable, but he is having a difficult time breaking the toe part in as it is very thick rubber in the front. Once he breaks them in he is sure they are going to be a great winter boot for his type of work, especially for keeping his feet cozy and warm.

These boots are great. They fit snug to your feet and keep them really warm. The work great on and in the snow. I will buy another pair if these ever go bad. They are built to top notch specs. And should last for years and years. Great buy. Get yours before they are gone

Boots look great and feel very warm but I am returning them because they run small and get maybe a 1/2 size larger if purchasing.

These boot are great, but are very snug. The other review said they are snug, so I ordered one size bigger and they are still tight. I may have to send them back and get a larger size. Considering how warm these boots are, they aren't as heavy as some comparable boots. Design is great.

All things considered, I'm pretty happy with these boots. The two negatives are that my feet start getting cold at about 5 degrees, and if you step in a puddle that is deeper than the rubber base of the boots water will get in. I work in Afghanistan, which is a tough environment for footwear, and other than the 2 issues mentioned these boots have performed well.

I love the look of these boots and they are indeed very warm. But they are also very stiff in the uppers, which is good for support but not as good for comfort. They sort of feel (at least initially) like wearing ski boots.

These are a little snug with the padded insulation around them. So if you like to have a lot of movement in your shoe go up a half size. If you have bigger feet like me, you either have to tough it out or go up a full size.

They aren't kidding when they say this runs small! I ALWAYS wear a size 11, have for years. So, I decided to order this boot in an 11.5 to be safe. It feels tight! Part of the problem I think is that the toe seems to arch upwards, as others have mentioned. Rather than sending boots back and forth, I'm holding on to this one, safe in the box, and have ordered it in a 12, which should be here in a day. Then, ONE of them is going back. I suspect I will keep the 12. Why in the world the North Face can't simply fix what size they call these is beyond me. Makes me really appreciate Zappos' free return policy! The boot seems very well made but of course I haven't worn it outside the bedroom.

I always have trouble finding comfortable boots for one reason. I don't like how most boots dig into my shins. These are extremely comfortable in that respect. The tread is great in snow and ice, and the boot is warm. Good value.

These are some pretty sturdy boots! They are stylish, and I've received plenty of compliments on them. They fit kinda snug because of the insulation on the inside; however, they surprisingly don't do much for extreme cold. If you are standing in snow or ice all day, they won't help much for the cold, but they will keep your feet from getting wet. I probably would have went with Timberland instead because of the comfort issue, but for the money, these are overall some really good boots.

The design is awesome; I loved it. My only complaint is that this is so cushioned inside for insulation it feels very tight. I ordered a 1/2 larger size, and it stills feels tight. Maybe if order one size bigger that would be fine.

Checked these out at Dick's Sporting goods and were very comfortable and lightweight. Only issue is the sizing as toes felt smashed in the toe at my typical size and too loose going up a size. Didn't have the half size that may have solved the problem.

So I purchased a pair for my husband, my father, my brother, and a 4th pair as a gift. They couldn't be happier. These boots are great for the windy cold city - we live in Chicago, IL. Just order a size bigger for a perfect fit.

These are really nice looking boots but the size is not close. I wear an 11 normally and bought 11½ and they were still tight. Buy, at the very least, one whole size bigger if not a size and half.

Very nice looking boot, looks like it will keep your feet warm and dry. However, on our 2nd return...my husband wears a 9.5, I had gone up to a 10 for him based off reviews, that was too small. Return for 10.5, and he didn't feel a difference between 10 and 10.5. We are returning and getting a different brand.

Here's the deal with these- much like you're accustomed to reading thus far about the size crisis, I was too. I ended up picking these up locally because I didn't want the hassle of returning, etc. I am a true 10.5, through and through. I went and tried on a 12 and was thrilled to take them home. I wore them around the house for about 2 hours and noticed the old heel starting to slip. Long story short, I exchanged them for an 11 and life is good. They'll be a bit snug at first, but they break in! You don't need two pairs of socks with boots like these...
