These boots look nice on the interweb and in person. Its another story the first time you wear them (ouch!!!!!!!!!!!) They hurt like hell for the first three miles. Real tite on the ankles,i loosend them up a bit and they were better. They will get more comfortable with time. I dont plan on any more North face boots

These are great and I think look much better in person than they do in the picture. I like to be as stylish as I can while still having the best functioning gear and clothing and these boots do just that. Do yourself a favor and pick them up if you are looking for a good looking, but tough work boot.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I tried a pair of these on in a local store this summer and loved them, went home and ordered them on here ($30 cheaper). For me, I have to only wear them when it's really cold as my feet sweat a lot, even in flip flops lol. Now that the temps have dropped where I live, these boots are keeping my feet nice and toasty. I have also used them on light hiking trails and the grip is amazing! Great boot for a winter hike then a pint at the pub after, without looking like you just treked all over...lol

i bought these boots for my super sporty and fashion conscious best friend for christmas. i have never seen him take a pair of shoes like this. from gallery openings, to hiking in the mountains, to snowy streets. they have become his go-to. comfortable, warm when necessary, and dry in the snow. he says there were his best 2012 score and i say they look hot for a sporty boot.
do you think these would be good for a trek around europe in winter?
Yup, they would actually be perfect for such a trip.
Fit: They fit snug, I purchased my regular size. I felt a 1/2 size larger was too sloppy.
Comfort: I spent 10 day walking all over London's cold and damp streets and these were great!
Looks: First off the boot's leather wear's great and look 100 times better than the image above.
The boot feels great, just get half a size bigger than your regular shoe size. The color DOES NOT LOOK AT ALL LIKE THE PICTURE!
Would recommend these Boots to anyone. Very comfortable, Light on feet and stylish. Great bang for your buck!!!
I ordered this boot mainly as a casual/comfort boot with the expectation of being able to stand up to some occasional snowy Wisconsin winter days. I believe these would have fit the bill perfectly, but the boot is not exactly as it looks in the picture. I know looks aren't everything when it comes down to a good boot, but I was expecting a shined maybe distressed look of leather as in the picture...but not what I got. The boot actually is a soft leather, almost suede look. Changed the look of the boot too much for me.
These boots are AWESOME. Talk about comfort! Talk about fit & feel! Talk about cool!... these have it all in spades. It wont be long before I have a back-up pair for my new favorites!... get yours quick.
How do the sizes run? I wear 10.5 in some shoe and 11 in others. If I order the wrong size can I return them for a different size?
backcountry.com has a no questions asked return policy of which i have taken advantage on several occasions. order and return with confidence my friend.
i went and tried these boots on at the north face store. I usually run 10.5 in boots and they fit like a glove for me (in 10.5). and if they dont return policy!!
