I wear 5.5 shoe but a 6 in boots. This boot in a 6 is tight and difficult to get off. I had a thin sock on and can't imagine trying to get these on with a thicker sock. They look great but...

Great boots. They are a little heavy/clunky for wearing out and about to do errands, but perfect for walks in the snow. My feet were toasty warm in single digit weather with very thin socks on.

Comfortable enough to wear commuting or even shopping. Have been wearing them in early Canadian winter and it feels cozy. Since the faux lining is only at the boot opening, I'd likely need a thicker sock for deeper into winter.

I had been shopping around for some comfortable, water-proof, warm boots, and wasn't finding anything remotely stylish. And while these may not be the most stylish, they are SUPER comfortable, ULTRA water-proof, and EXTREMELY warm. They have medium arch support, but so much padding, you feel like you're walking on two little pillows. It's been snowy and rainy here in Chicago, and I've worn these in both weather conditions, with no wet complaints from my socks or feet. Your feet may get a bit sweaty if you are easily warm, or wear them for a long time. Me, I'm always cold, so I have no issues wearing them all the time.

I love these boots! They are warm and durable enough to wear to the horse barn but cute enough to wear around. Zappos is awesome, super fast!

These boots are awesome. They're really sturdy and well-insulated. The support is also good, and I really need support. I'm returning them only because I don't need quite as much insulation/sturdiness: I'm in Virginia and need something for casual, cold rain, and occasional snow. These are okay for casual but a little stiff. They'd be great if I wanted something for more-than-occasional snow.

These are very nice boots and do exactly what the description said they would do. Kept feet warm and dry. Try to size, just a tiny bit narrow.

Run small! I usually wear a 9.5 and returned for a 10. I wear with an orthotic and want them for after ski with heavier socks.

Ordered an 8 1/2. I'm normally wear an 8 sometimes an 8 1/2. Not sure if I need to go to a 9 for the heavy sock thing. Plenty of room in the heel but not sure if I wear a thick sock if the toe bed will be too tight. Very comfortable boot and fairly light. Ordered the McMurdo II also. That was way too small. Probably would've needed a 9 1/2. Liked the Shellista better. The insole insert in the heal had a kink in it which my husband kept pushing it in to minimize it.

I really wasn't thrilled with these boots. They do seem to run at least a half size small and there isn't much room for my toes or the top of my foot (and my feet are not wide, and I wear a size 7). The tops of my feet felt very compressed once inside the boot. They also feel very "clunky" when I walk, like I'm wearing big snow boots or something. I also wish they came up higher to tuck in my pants on really snowy/slushy days. On the plus side, they are warm, the traction is good for ice and snow, and they are pretty cute. I may just sell mine online since I only wore them twice.

Awesome boots, work perfect in cold and snowy winter weather, fit true size (but if one wants to wear extra socks it is better to order half size bigger). Very happy with my purchase!

Great product! The boots are very warm and comfortable. I tested them for the last month and can say if they can withstand Maine winter, they can withstand all winters! My only recommendation is to get a half size larger because they run a bit small. I am a size 9 and purchased a size 9. The boots fit, but I think size 9.5 would have been perfect!

I love these boots! This past winter in Minnesota has been brutal and I was tired of my Target brand winter boots. I was slipping, my feet were getting wet and the cheap fur lining was thinning. So, I decided to invest in these North Face boots. The traction on them is amazing! I also like the waterproof sole and outer shell of the boot. Plus, the fur is warm. My only wish is that the lining were a bit warmer. It's good...but it could be improved. I also like how easy they are to slip on and off, but yet feel secure. For the money, I feel it's a great pair of boots. Especially if you live somewhere cold or deal with a lot of snow.

I use these boots mainly for walking my dog in the cold winter weather. I usually wear size 7 1/2 or 8, but ordered these in size 9 to accommodate thicker socks, and the fit is great! The boots are very warm and comfortable, and are not heavy and clunky like some boots can be. They are easy to get on and off and very durable, too. I would recommend these boots.

Very comfortable and easy! The shoe is roomy and going down 1 whole size would be more comfortable. The boot is a slip on style which makes the boot super user friendly as a snow boot. Liked the boot so much bought a pair for both of my daughters for a ski trip. They both gave it a stamp of approval in the comfort and style categories. Kept their feet warm and dry on walks through the village and during snow ball fights.

I absolutely love these boots. My foot slides in with little to no effort. And they are stylish too. I bought these for when my family and i goes skiing and snowboarding. I will say that you will need to wear either thick socks or layered socks. They keep your feet somewhat warm so thick socks are needed.

Very comfy, sturdy, and I live in massive ice and tundra environment with lots of slush. I've tried many kinds of boots and these are great. Hard to match stylish with function along with comfort. A little clunky, but I'll take it because I know they are protecting my feet and don't look yucky having just tromped through the ice and slush.

A good choice. I would agree with many of the other posts about size. I went up 1/2 a size and it fits just right. I would even go up a few sizes if you want these to wear with thick socks. Very warm. Has great support - feels like you're rocking, it has so much arch support. Only criticism is that the shaft is not as loose as I'd like. I can squeeze my trouser jeans into them, but it's a squeeze. Maybe they'll loosen? Have only had them a few days. They're snow boots. You don't really buy these for style though, do you!?

I love these boots, and they are GREAT in the bad weather we have been having in NYC this winter. My only complaint is that when I'm wearing jeans with them, they are bit tight around my ankles and I get a bit of a rash... I try to stick with leggings instead!

The boots are great! They ran a little big, but it's okay because I wore thick winter socks and they fit perfectly. I was in in about 2 feet of snow, hiking up a mountain, and my feet were super warm. Great buy!

These boots are perfect for sledging through slush, rain and snow. Keep my feet warm and dry. They are exactly like the picture. I scored them true to size but feel that boots are always a little bit wider/bigger. So, true to size for boots.

These are the best winter boots I've owned! They keep my feet warm and dry in both snow and slush. I've worn them for several hours in single digit temps and walked around town in them. They even have a hook to attach gaiters for snow shoeing. The part that hits my calf is flexible as well as fur lined. I've had trouble with leather boots cutting into the back of my leg. These boots are true to size and I am able to put my orthotics in them. Great purchase!

Love these boots. Wanted something for all this nasty and slushy and snowy weather that was comfortable and at least a little fashionable! These boots have great arch support which I was not expecting. Warm, comfortable and true to size very happy!
