There is an uncomfortable break where the rubber foot portion of the boot meats the back of the boot. This "break" hits the back of my upper ankle and is fairly uncomfortable. I can't imagine walking in these for even a short distance. Unfortunately, I will be returning these.

I’m an 8.5 and got a 9. Fit was great and they were super comfy but I had the same ankle issue that plagued so many other reviewers. The ankle area of the boot needs way more structure to be functional!

I read many reviews on size since I would not be trying them on. I researched all types of brands as well. I have never owned a pair of snow boots living in southern Arizona. Now I live in northern New Mexico at 7500' and there is lots of snow and ice this year. The shaft size is perfect for the fluffy dry drifts. My feet have not felt cold even standing around in my uninsulated crafting studio. For added stability on ice, I also bought a pair of Pro Yaktrax size M. I normally wear a 9 1/2 shoe but I knew I would be wearing wool socks, so I got size 10. I have worn them all day without any arch issues and my foot ball area never felt cramped even with wool socks. I am very happy with my purchase.

My husband just purchased the Kamik NationPlus for himself.

I wear an 8, I originally ordered a size up as others suggested, but a 9 was too big so i returned them for an 8 and i am happy with how they fit.

These are very comfortable and provide ample warmth. I think they are very stylish for a heavier winter boot. They are well suited to long hikes in snowy conditions!

I really love the look of these boots and the fit. They do run slightly small. I usually wear a size 6-6.5. I ordered size 6 in these and they fit great even with thick socks. Unfortunately, like other reviewers mentioned, my heel pops out as I walk. I think they would be very uncomfortable to wear for an extended period of time. I am sadly returning.

I’ve owned several pairs of Kamik rain/snow boots that are wonderful, but sadly these are being returned. Like others have said, the heel box is HUGE and the boot itself short/much tighter than the heel box. My heel doesn’t stay put at all.

Of the three winter boots I ordered from Zappos, this one took the prize. It is very nice looking even in the larger sizes. The fake fur lining is super soft and very warm. The gusset tongue will definitely keep the snow out and we get a lot of snow in New Hampshire. It is a bit difficult to tighten the laces enough to avoid heel slippage so I'm hoping I won't get a blister on a long snowshoeing hike. For a boot that is definitely waterproof, it is fashionable enough to wear with a good wool coat. As for traction in the ice, I'll have to wait a bit, but judging by today's chill wind that won't be long.

I really wanted this boot to work for me to replace my old Sorels, but I ended up returning them. They look very cute, and they feel like they would be quite warm. However, there are two major areas that didn’t work- the heel and the ankle. My heel slipped a lot every time I took a step. I do not usually have problems with my heels in boots, so I tried ordering down a size. My heel slipped less (but still slipped some), but the rest of the foot was too snug. This is a deal-breaker alone, since it would be difficult to walk in snowy conditions with a heel slipping in my boot. Adding to the heel problem, the ankle isn’t quite cut right. I thought other reviewers were being too picky about the ankle; a boot needs to bend at one’s ankle. Unfortunately, they were spot-on. The ankle area crushes too much/wrongly, which would become uncomfortable after walking for a little while. Not going to work for someone who will do much walking. These might be great for a person who stands or sits to watch winter sporting events.

Unfortunately, had to return these. Tried them on with a pair of thin socks as soon as they arrived, and I was a little disappointed to find that they were snug even though I ordered one size up. I normally go 1/2 - 1 size up on boots but these were still too small.

The boots kept the feet warm but it's folding down in the back above the heel and it's causing blisters. So, I am not sure what to do about this boot.

Laces don’t tighten well. Hard to get a snug fit around ankle. Cute style but I returned.

These are super light weight for the amount of warmth they provid, but they are very bulky around the ankle. They felt like they had collapsed in the back and dug into my ankle bone, though, so i ended up returning them.

There is no heel pocket in these boots. The minute I tied them up and took a step my heels came up and weren’t stable at all. I’ve never had a shoe or boot feel like this. Totally disappointing as they check every other box on my list!

LOVE THESE - I have wide feet and was concerned - but i guess because they are snow boots and expect a heavy sock, they fit great. I wore them a full snowy day to work and then errands afterwards and was comfortable the whole time which says a lot. They are cute, stylish, warm and just great!

I purchased these in a larger size to wear with socks. They are very comfortable and I'm waiting for snow so I can assess how they feel while walking in such. I'm not really feeling the ties so I only tie up the second highest hook. They are extremely cute (for snow boots) and will match most of my coats. Happy purchase.

The front end was fine but the heel was much too large and even with thick socks my heels still slopped around in the back.

Just got back from ski trip to Keystone, Colorado. These boots could not have made me any happier! I thought they might be a pain to lace up... but the laces tighten soooooo easily that getting them tight from base to top is a breeze. I wear a size 10 and bought a size 11 so I could wear super thick socks with them. They fit like a dream! SOOOO comfortable and easy to adjust if you need them tighter (like socks) or looser (thick or double socks). My feet never got cold!!!

I ordered these and returned them not realizing how tall of a boot they are. I normally wear a 9 and order 9.5 and they fit good. I have wider calves so the taller boot I felt looked odd on my leg. Other wise good boot.

I absolutely love these boots! I have foot problems and have to wear orthotics, so finding snowboots is very difficult and I live in a very snowy climate and walk dogs for a living! These boots have removable insoles, so I can put my orthotics in easily. They fit great and are super comfortable. I can wear them all day and there are very few shoes I can say that about. And on top of all that, they are adorable!! I love the way they look. I am thrilled with my purchase. The only two complaints I could come up with are: 1) the laces are a bit long, and 2) I wish it had a loop on the back to make the boot easier to pull on because I don’t need to untie them to take them on and off. I highly recommend this boot.

I had a pair of Kamik boots for at least 6 years. I wore them primarily for walking my dog during cold weather. We walk twice a day, every day and the tread was getting very thin. I bought these to replace the old pair and am not disappointed. These are definitely more fashionable than the old pair and I like the waterproofing and the fit has a very cozy fit. They have also had great traction as I have walked in 6+ inches of snow for the last 2 weeks.

I loved the look of these boots. However they were just a little bit too small. I order an 11 in white which is the biggest size they come in. I typically wear an 11 in Ugg and Keen. I tried without a sock and they were still a little snug.

These are true to size, even with mid weight wool socks. If you wear the thick woolies, you might want to order a half size up. They are comfortable enough to wear right out of the box and look cuter than I expected for a fairly serious winter boot. The traction seems good, though maybe not as much grip as some of the more arctic wear boots. I decided to keep these.

I typically wear a 7, but with boots I go a size up. These were still too small. The 8 felt like a 7, and the shoe is a narrow fit. They also felt pretty bulky. I love Kamik and I think they make great quality shoes, but these just didn’t work for me so they had to go back.
