These boots are really comfortable for miles of walking! They are waterproof, great for snow and puddles, and really cute. I receive lots of compliments on the streets of Manhattan.

I love these boots! They are super warm, and comfortable to walk in. Initially there was a little bit of rubbing on the inside, but the boots softened up after a few wears and now there is no rubbing at all. I have worn them in snow and in the rain and they are perfect. They are a good length and look great. The laces definitely need to be undone fully when taking your foot out, its not that easy to slip your foot in and out of them quickly. I am usually a 7 or 7.5, in this case the 7.5 fit nicely.

I agree with the other reviews. These boots are not for true winter and snow. They are great for fall and early spring if you live in an area with harsh winters. They are really very cute, smart and stylish, but they are very thin, so they do not give good protection against coldness. I mainly need this kind of shoe for dog walking, I live in the Northwest and we do not have cold winters here with a lot of snow, but a lot of rain. A lot of people here wear sneakers the whole winter, so for me these boots work perfectly since I mainly need something waterproof, a little bit warm but not heavy, chunky, I need a good feeling in my feet to walk, and looking nice, stylish and cute since I am in a dog park walking almost dial. They wear like sneakers, really comfortable and very lightweight. But if you need boots for deep snow and really cold weather, I would not recommend these. I have boots from Lands End, too, which really work in snow and are really warm.

Not very warm or comfortable at all. Returning as I doubt they will make good snow boots. Love the look though.

I really wanted to like this boot, but just couldn't do it. The laces are a little difficult to manage and it felt small. The sole felt nice while walking, has a nice "rock" to it and it appeared to do the job of keeping my feet warm, but it was just smaller than indicated.

TNF Nuptse Purna is proving a wonderfully comfortable yet stylish snow boots. Because I planned to wear thicker socks,I ordered 7.5, a half size larger than my typical shoe size. I wore liner socks with thick wool socks. It was a perfect fit. On day 1, after 6 hours, my feet were still comfy. I wore them snowshoeing without a problem - feet warm, dry and happy.

This is a very nice looking and comfortable pair of boots. I bought them just in time for the 30" of snow we just received in New York City and they got me through without a hitch. They kept my feet warm and dry. I love them!

These are great boots. They are a little difficult to get into at first though. The first time I wore them, it was a really cold day so I put a pair of thick socks over thin ones and the boots were too tight. I removed the thick socks, and the boots kept my feet warm even with just the thin socks. After walking in them for a while they ended up stretching so I was able to wear both pairs of socks later.

Awesome, light-weight, and warm winter shoes. I wore these on a particularly cold night in Breckenridge, CO and my feet felt toasty warm. They look pretty good too! As others have mentioned, the laces are a bit inconvenient, but that's the only negative thing I have to say so far.

I have an older pair of North Face boots that I absolutely love because they're fashionable, warm and waterproof. I felt I needed a newer pair as the older ones didn't feel quite as warm (I've had them for many years). The new pair fits well and is nice looking. The biggest difference is these boots need to be laced which I find a bit inconvenient. If they're just as warm as my first pair, I'll be happy. North Face knows how to make a great waterproof boot that looks good and is comfortable.

These are fantastic. I added an insert for extra arch support because I have high arches, and I can wear them all day. I like them so much that I have even worn them in the office on snowy days because they are not too clunky. I get lots of compliments on them, actually. They do take a minute to put on and off since they are lace-up.

These are the best! I get compliments every time I wear them. I've played in the snow and never had a wet or cold foot. I'm worn these in just below zero temps and my feet were toasty! Best boots for the price!

I LOVE these boots! I had sorrels which were never comfortable on me ever. I have pretty narrow feet and these are perfect! Super comfortable and warm! We were out in cold weather (30s) for hours the day after I got these and I was 100% warm and comfortable. Plus as far as warm boots go these are cute!

1)I LOVED them! and I feel blessed for Zappos.com because of our return policy. I wears a size 11 and it is very hard to find a shoe online but with Zappos's return policy she can purchase online and if they do not fit, she can return with no problem.

These boots are so cute! I have them in grey, and they get lots of compliments, even from guys! They kind of resemble a tennis shoe, erring on the side of sporty, and are lightweight. But, I probably would not recommend them in extremely cold places (i.e. Salt Lake City), because even though there is a lining, they are relatively thin. But for a chilly California evening, they're perfect!

This seems to be just what I have been looking for after trying countless pairs through Zappos and other retailers since the old pair of waterproof zip-upRieker boots I had are falling apart (and their updated versions were not as nice) at last.These are stylish and lightweight but still waterproof and seem comfortable (at least as far as I can tell walking around the house) and warm enough. Even though they are lace-up, it seems that I can simply loosen the top three rungs or so to get them on and off quickly. The true test will come when snow falls--will it withstand long intervals of cold and wet weather and hold up for miles of city walking?

I've had these for a week and have worn them several times already. They seem great. I am usually a 7 or 7.5 so i ordered both and kept the 7.5. They are pretty warm (not as warm as Uggs, but also a lot cheaper), comfortable to walk in and good at gripping the ground in snowy/icy conditions. A good choice for nyc winters when snow turns into a gray slushy mess that sticks around for weeks!

Great boot and perfect for the climate I live in - southern Sweden - where it's cold but rains a great deal. The boots are surprisingly lightweight but warm and waterproof. I generally wear a size 6 which wasn't available when I ordered so I went for a size 7. They are just slightly roomy so a 6.5 probably would've been perfect. An extra pair of socks make up the difference. My favorite thing about Zappos - when I'm in the States for a short visit, I can order three or four pairs of footwear, get them in just a couple days, try them on at my parent's house, choose the pair that's best for me and return the rest with free shipping both ways. My husband was so impressed with this service that he ordered two pairs of shoes and kept them both!

The boots are amazing. They're incredibly warm, totally waterproof, and have great traction. The boots are also very light in weight and are not bulky like a lot of other snow boots.

Love these boots! They are very comfortable and not as large and clunky as other winter boots. Very good traction and warm, yet I was able to wear them inside all day at work and my feet weren't overheating. I wear a size 10 and my feet are wide, and though these looked narrow, they fit very well. I get lots of compliments on them. I had purchased a different brand of boots first but did not really like them, returned them once I found these. These were more expensive but worth the price since I will definitely wear them more. Very cute with jeans tucked into them.

I believe when I buy a north face product, I not only buy the name, but quality. it is too early to say if the quality is up to par, but the size stinks... if you are a 9 order a 10... way too small.
