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.

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.

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.

Make no mistake, this is duck boot with a top on it, hence why so many are reporting cold feet. That said, this boot is exactly what I was looking for: a boot that could handle deeper snow/slush/water while I run errands, and also allow me to drive easily (something my beloved Sorel Caribous are too clunky to do). As others have said, this is a wonderfully light, but well-made boot. I love them! They are quite comfortable on my very-hard-to-fit feet and I had no heel slipping. They are versatile in that I can tuck pant legs into them or not; the boots look great either way. A home run for me. As always, Zappos is awesome!!

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.

I actually ordered two different North Face boots in the same size, and almost sent them both back because at first I could not get my foot into either of them. Which had to do with on this boot the shape of the foot portion from the ankle down - especially formed for water proofing I believe - making it feel hard at first. However, after working hard to adjust lacings, the one with front lacing allowed and seemed to fit okay, though hard. I am new to needing snow boots for a long winter and having given away a pair of good Merels that hurt me three winter vacations, I decided to ask advice from my daughter. Because once my foot was in this hard shell made me wonder if this boot would be too small. But I have a narrow foot, always hard too fit, and wider calves, and once in it seemed to fit well. At her suggestion, I took my time over a few days to see if it just needed to adjust to my feet, or if I would be better with a bigger size. She warned me to not run to get a bigger size, as these may quickly stretch. Sure enough, they have already, and are pretty comfy. Very stylish - though I really loved the look even more on the North Face Jozie Purna in teal with lacing more in the styling wrapping around the front, then more hidden ties back and side, but it would not fold down to where it would allow my foot in at all! Both boots have the same bottom form, which has good traction but is light compared to some very heavy more trekking boots out there. I am feeling for me this will still need a fleecy insole added for cozier warmth, The top is furry, and can fold down for a shorter boot with a big furry top showing. When the boot is up, this furry part hugs the calf - about 6 inches or more of this. So it is warm. It definitely is waterproof. It has not snowed, but I wore them in the rain. Stayed very clean and dry. I got the white and grey model. Very happy so far. If this changes after winter snows come, I will report back.

At first these weren't available in my size, so I ordered a half size up. I wasn't happy with how much larger they felt, so I returned them and was lucky enough to find they had restocked my original size. I ordered my actual size a few days ago and I'm wearing them right now! The fur detailing is incredibly soft, and they look and feel like they're more weather resistant than most other boots out there.

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.

Was looking for a replacement for my regular Nuptse boots. I usually wear a size 10, so the Sorrel boots were out, since they are just too huge and was looking for something with a slimmer profile and lightweight. There are comfortable, easy to get on/off and do not make my feet look any bigger than they already are. :) I had to size up to an 11 - could have gotten away with a 10.5, but wanted them roomy enough for thicker socks. I take a star off because I don't think they are all that warm. I just need them for errands around town and when the snow hits, so not too much of an issue, but this may be a factor for others. Also think they would use a little more support, but otherwise very happy with the purchase.

These were not my first choice but the only thing I could find in my size that I liked at all. And at that, I had to go a half size up, which makes them feel big. They also seem to run wide. They're great looking boots, but as I found out the hard way, very slick on wet tile floors, (like the grocery store and post office). They're also difficult to get on, even completely unlaced, so I won't/don't wear them as much as I'd like to...just too much trouble. For that same reason, I can't say how warm they are since I've not worn them enough to really know.

Decent boot, it was certainly comfortable enough when I tried it on, though it was hard to slip my heel into the bottom. I think it probably would've loosened up if I'd chosen to keep it. I kept a different, heftier pair of snow boots instead because these were okay but didn't knock my socks off. Overall, a decent boot for running errands and being in and out of the car, but not so much for tromping through feet of snow.

The boots are very comfortable. True to size and waterproof. They are great in snow and ice. My only complaint is that they are not warm. I was in an ice rink and by the time the hockey game was over I couldn't feel my toes.
