We bought these for my mother in law for Christmas. She LOVES them. They keep her feet warm and dry. She walks a lot in the snow and cold and has zero complaints.

The heel of the boot wore out in a week! Literally this was a XMAS gift that lasted one whole week. Not a sexy gift for the wife I know, but she wore it 7 days and the heel plastic tore through the inner lining. Perfect timing with our blizzard! Disappointed to say the least.

I ordered these boots a day before a snowstorm. They showed up just as I needed to go out! Perfect. Color is right on, fit is perfect (I wear a 7 1/2 and ordered an 8.) Very warm and comfortable. Love Zappos fast service!

What was that, the sound of a delivery truck with my Zappos order before I even finished ordering?! Yay, I love Zappos, and I love the reviews that help me make my decision. They were spot on - you will need a full size larger than you usually wear. Love the boots, I have to pull them right on and run through 18" of snow to check them out. So far so good, love them. Insulation doesn't seem real thick so I don't think I would wear them ice fishing or out in very cold weather for long periods but for regular use just fine. Also I don't think I could wear a pair of heavy wool socks with them even though they are a size larger than I normally wear but then again, I don't think I'll need to.

Love these boots so far. I normally wear a 6.5 in shoes, so I went up to the 7 and the fit well, if not a bit snug. They're a comfortable boot that are well insulated. That oso fleece lining makes these boots so worth it! So far I've worn them in a few inches of snow and found them to be terrific.

Too small! I usually wear size 7.5 or 8, got 8. Toes touch the front of the boot. Too small, will order 8.5. I love them - so cute. Hope they fit.

Warm, toasty and comfortable. True to size, just the boot I've been looking for to tough out the frigid midwest winters!

I really like these boots. They are comfortable walking or driving. I will most probably order another pair. The first pair I ordered were too snug so I sent them back and ordered a size larger and had the replacement pair back in 2 days. Great service!

I've been looking for a winter boot for awhile now. I bought the Sorel Glacy boots which fit so nicely, but looked very masculine. These boots are so cute and they are warm. You need to wear socks with them unlike Uggs, but they're toasty. They're not waterproof, but I Scotchgarded them and it protects it well enough. They do run really narrow and small. I'm a solid 7, and I ordered and 8. They're very tight and very narrow. But still comfortable. I would recommend them to a friend.

Boots were really cute, but way smaller than usual. I'm a size 7 and I bought a 7, but it felt like it was a 6. I'm returning them and might just get an 8 instead.

These feel warm, are easy to slip on, and I like that they look a little narrower and have the stitching to break up the fabric on the toe area - as opposed to some of the other slip on booties. They did feel a little tight on the toe height (I could feel the top of the boot with my toe).

I liked the way these looked. Cute & stylish. They were also quite comfortable, right out of the box. They do appear to run a 1/2 size small (at least) though. I have other NF boots in size 6 and I'm pretty much a size 6 across all brands, but it was too short in this boot. I'm debating whether or not to re-order and try a 6 1/2...

Love the look of these boots but can't believe how tight the toe felt. I have a size 5 foot. I ordered size 6 but still too tight across the toe.

I was hoping these would be like a similar North Face boot years ago, but sadly it's not nearly as comfortable. I usually wear a 7 in North Face and this time it was kind of snug. Getting my foot in was hard and it pulls part of the very thin upper down into the footbed. Besides having an odd fit and being hard to get on, I don't think this boot would be very warm at all. The upper was surprisingly thin.

These just arrived today. a snow storm is approaching and I thought it would be great. Unfortunately they were terribly uncomfortable. They were short and narrow and very stiff. Not a keeper. I did not like the look well enough to try again. They are headed back.

I live in Upstate New York, and I need good boots for the cold winter months. These North Face boots are very comfortable and keep my feet warm for the average daily activities. That being said, the boots do not hold up if used in snow for longer periods.

Love North Face and LOVE these boots! However, unlike some of my other North Face boots, these did run smaller. I am a true size 7 and these were snug - like heel to toe without an extra millimeter - snug. So, I am exchanging them for a full-size up as they do not come in half sizes. In true and wonderful form, Zappos is shipping the new ones overnight and I can't wait to get them. Amazing service as always Zappos - very thankful and appreciative of that!

These were a great looking boot. Sort of an Ugg similar style. When they arrived although the shaft of the boot was wide the boot itself was narrow and ran a full size small. I'm usually a 9.5 so I ordered a 10, but my toes were at the front of the boot and the heel part was very tight.

This boot is okay, definitely not as cute in real life as online. I usually wear a 10 and ordered an 11 based on others reviews, but it was still too small. It seemed to be able to keep my feet warm, but it was just too small.

I was hoping to replace an old pair of North Face pull on boots (that I love) with these. These were tight and not nearly as warm. They were hard to get on and not very comfortable. I will be returning them.

Just received these boots. Very disappointed in the quality, right boot is much more narrower then the left. Sending them back. They look very cheap. No fault of Zappos.
