I bought these boots for those snowy/rainy days in Michigan during the winter. I have used them in snow, rain, mud, and on icy pavement. They have exceeded my expectations. These are not rain boots, nor are they snow boots but they will keep your feet warm and dry for a few hours in either of these conditions. I have had no leaks and they are fairly warm in snow with a thicker pair of socks. They are very comfortable and I often use them on snowy/rainy days when I have errands to run as they are not too hot to wear inside. Overall they are great for everyday use and work quite well for more demanding conditions. They work for what I use them for, so be sure to evaluate what you want out of these before you decide. I wear a 10-10.5 in most shoes so I went with an 11 and they fit well.

Just bought a pair 30 days ago for winter storm. It really disappointed me; it's not at all waterproof. Wear it when the storm hit and at the end of the day my feet are all wet...it sucks.

Given the recent blizzard-like state of NYC, I've had a good two weeks to test out these shoes, and I'm afraid the results aren't as positive as I'd hoped from these reviews. A number of issues make this less than ideal, even compared to my years old, Aldo imitation duck boots. (Aldo!) 1.) They are not totally waterproof -- the gusseted tongue doesn't go up high enough, which means water can, and totally does, leak in. Even if you lace your boots up tight. 2.) The hooks at the top two levels are so poorly made that they are a super pain to lace up and fail to secure -- falling off with ease. I can only imagine this is a cost saving issue? 3.) The sizes are very, very stiff -- I've developed two big callouses on the outside of my ankles -- and just realized with horror last night that they've bled through my socks. Thanks North Face! 4.) There is not really much arch support -- which is fine for me as I don't like a bump, but they aren't that comfortable for long distances 5.) Grip is medium -- not sure what North Face means by icepick grip, as I slid as much as anyone else did on the black ice around town. The positives - they are very nice looking. Hipster attracting, it seems. And they are reasonably insulated. And they clean easily. If you are not in need of super waterproof, super grip, and can handle fairly stiff/less than ideally cushioned sides, go for this boot.

Bought these shoes a few weeks ago after the Arctic Vortex and it has survived a trip up to Canada where it's a constant winter and currently the Polar Chill over the northeastern corner of America. They're waterproof and I've walked for over 5 miles in snow that's about a foot deep and my feet stayed dry (a little wet from the sweat, yes gross) and I did not feel feet cramps or pinching or anything. Very comfortable and there's plenty of cushion for the feet. Also warm as it's insulated. Yes, the style is kind of retro so you'd have to be happy with that (which I am). I bought and tried a few more pairs and returned them via Zappos and this is the one I've kept and will keep. If I had it exactly my way, I probably would've gotten a 1/2 size larger but even the size I got, which are my actual feet size, works perfectly. I'm thinking more along the lines of wearing 2 pairs of socks which might be a tad tight.

I read the reviews and was hesitant about ordering these because of the sizing issues. I understand what other people were saying about them feeling tight. The first time I put these on, they were right. However, after a few minutes, they loosened up. I have plenty of room in the toe box to wiggle my toes. As far as comfort is concerned, these boots are EXTREMELY comfortable. I have never worn moccasins, but I imagine this is what it would feel like. They are warm, and allow plenty of foot movement. They are not stiff. They feel like I'm wearing about 4 pairs of wool socks, with a rubber sole on the bottom. So far, I am very satisfied with these boots.

Great boots! They are as comfortable as a pair of sneakers yet provide great protection and warmth. I have worn them out for 3 hours of walking in -3Farenheit in the snow and my feet stayed warm and dry.

Thoroughly impressed so far. These boots have a classic look as well as a great feel. I will admit that at first the upper shaft of the boot was a bit stiff and slightly uncomfortable, but after a solid day of breaking them in, they feel fine. They are warm and dry in normal conditions (I've stomped in a few icy puddles to test this), and they are light and flexible; a key feature I wanted. They have the feel of a rugged sneaker with plenty of support and cushion for comfort. All in all a great winter boot, especially for everyday use in a range of conditions. I would advise getting a half-size larger for thicker socks.
