I ordered 3 boots to compare. The North Face Greenland Zip II, the Sorel Waterfall Slip and Kamik's Taos. The North Face boot felt the toughest- it has a stiff leather upper, inside the toe box it is snug with insulation, the sole felt the stiffest. The Kamik boot was the lightest. The nylon upper was very flexible as was the sole- nice for walking in. My foot had a lot of space inside as there is less insulation. My heel lifted quite a bit but I think extra socks would help both these issues. The Sorel was a comfortable boot, easy to walk in with more support than the Kamik. It looked nice with the suede exterior, but I worry that it won't hold up to a season's worth of slush. Ultimately I am going to choose the North Face Greenland boot because I will occasionally use it for snow shoeing and need the rugged stiffness.

Do not buy these boots. I loved my last pair of Sorel boots. So warm and toasty and comfortable. I thought I couldn't go wrong in buying another. Unfortunately these boots were awful. They did not keep my feet warm. Snow got in -- my feet were wet and cold. And they are also ugly and uncomfortable. Sadly I didn't buy them from Zappos and since they were purchased late last season (worn for the first time this year) I cannot return them. I tried calling Sorel to complain but they are not willing to do anything about it. I will not be purchasing another pair of Sorels!

Ordered my usual 8 and my toes hit the end of the boot with no socks on. Insole is hard so it feels like there's none there. Would not be comfy to walk in all day. Look closely at the seams on the top of the foot. Pretty busy in real life.

I love these boots. They are so warm my feet never get cold. They were a little tight in the beginning, but have stretched out since then. I still might get a half size bigger just because I still have a hard time putting them on some times. But I LOVE them.

Very Happy with these boots. I tried two other pair that were half the price and synthetic material but sent them both back because they were a little two short for me and even my daughter who is 1/2 size smaller said the same thing! I ordered these in my usual size 9 and they are perfect. I didn't want to have to wear a thick sock, just a basic ski sock and I also wore them with just tights. They felt a little loose in the heel but still very wearable. They looked very cute with a casual wool dress and warm as well. I needed a basic snow boot, not for the slopes but winter-weather wear on a daily basis and these fit the bill beautifully.

These boots have zippers on the inside of the upper boot. To zip this up, the wearer must have legs no bigger than sticks, as they could not even be started. I think they put a child's top on an adult's boot.

Brands I'd also recommend: Sorrel used to be good. Since moving manufacturing off shore, I have yet to find a pair of shoes or boots that fit correctly. Whose feet are they using for models? Not Americans. American women have well-developed calf muscles. The fit of these boots is ridiculous.

Nice cold weather boot, tread is outstanding for snow. Would recommend a waterproofing spray, zipper is a little difficult to zip up, but wouldn't stop me from buying another pair. Wear a nice pair of thin wool socks to make for perfect warmth.

This is one cute boot. Haven't worn it in the Oregon slush yet so don't know how well it cleans up. I normally order a 7.5 in boots but had to get a 7 in this. It fits fine though, even with medium thick socks.

I think these are a great option if you are looking for a boot that is (1) waterproof (2) has good tread for snow (3) is easy to get in and out of and (4) can (hopefully) be used for snowshoes. I am not sure about #4. It looks like a snow boot, but I think its cute enough to wear with the right skirt and tights and jeans. If you #1 concern is comfort and warmth I would go with this. I rejected the NF Greenland (too ugly boot looking, no style) the Saloman Emmy (very cute but dont trust it can take long walks in snow or rain) and the Puma Snow Alpine (also super cute but not waterproof). It must run a little wide/large - the 8.5 is perfect for my wide foot.

Overall these are good boots. They are warm and comfortable. I have not spent a lot of time in snow yet but I have not found my feet to be cold or wet while wearing these. My only complaint is that the zipper is mostly a plastic tag so it does not provide much leverage to zip shut with ease.

These are really hard to zip up. I had to struggle to get in and out of them - I guess because the zipper does not go all the way down.

These are very comfortable and warm. They are a bit wide, but I did not mind (they can fit thick socks). The deal breaker was that they were too short (not true to size). I am a 10½normally, and this size 11 was extremely snug. Too bad they do not carry these in a 12 size.

The zipper on this boot doesn't go down far enough to get your foot in. Once I got my foot in I couldn't get the zipper to zip up. Also runs about 1/2 size small.

Not quite comfortable enough despite sale price, even for infrequent wear at ski slopes. Soles look a lot thicker on the outside than they feel once on. Boots seemed to run large in the footbed (7s were swimming on me; I am normally a 6.5 in sandals, 7 in boots), but were tight around my rather thin ankles without socks. The tab on the side is weird & obvious in person. Gray color is nice.

Major design flaw with the zipper! Although the inside lining stretches to fit your calf, the zipper has no give and you have to pull it back to pre stretch location. To wear them I would have to leave them unzipped all the time. If you have skinny calves, you might be okay, but normal-large calves will not fit. I have 2 other pairs of Sorels that fit great.
