MJB wrote a review of The North Face Shellista Lace Boot - Women's on January 16, 2012
I am a photographer, so when I go out to photograph I need to be warm and have stable footing. These fit the bill perfectly. I am a slim 5' 7" with an athletic leg build. I wear a size 9- 9.5 shoe and ordered these in a 10. They fit great. I can wear thick socks or regular socks, depending on the need for layers. I have plenty of lacing to get a snug fit, these come to about 3 inches below my knee, and are wide enough to not aggravate my bad feet. I got to try them out for the first time this past weekend- 15* weather with a windchill in the single digits in 2 inches of snow and ice. I was outside walking in these conditions for over an hour. Not one toe was remotely cold, let alone numb from cold like my previous boots. I think these were money well spent.
