My North Face Baltoro 400 II Boots.

For years I have tried getting through winters using whatever I had on hand for boots. This year I decided to embrace the season and get some real winter gear. I researched boots and decided on the NF Baltoro 400 boot as a good all around boot for sloshing through the snow or wearing when I snow blow my driveway and sidewalks. Well, what can I say? I can stay out longer and my feet are very comfortable with no cold toes or uncomfortable rubbing after a while. Would I recommend them? Yes - absolutely! Was my experience with Back Country a good one? Well, I have shopped on-line with Cam***** for years and Back Country blew them out of the water with service and prompt service. At one point, they - Back Country, even shipped a back ordered item "overnite" delivery. Now that's service!.

My 7 year old Baltoro 200's split at the seam of the rubber and leather. Yes they were 7, but I also live in KC, so they didn't get that much use each winter. Looking for replacements now...

Do these work well with snowshoes? Or are they too big?

Hey Erik,

Depending on the snowshoe these should work just fine.

Did Need Them

I ordered these boots for my husband. When they arrived, he said he really didn't need them. I will spare you the description of the outdoor boots he has been wearing for over 25 years! Unfortunately they were a little tight, especially in the toes and considering a heavy sock, so this was his excuse to return them. He said he really needed to think about the perfect boot replacement. Instead I exchanged them for the next (full) size. He reluctantly caved, and he has repeatedly thanked me ever since. Most recently suggesting that I get a pair too, and our two boys, and...

Comfortable and Warm

I normally wear an 11 in Northface sneakers and I got A size 11 in these boots. I returned them got the 11.5 and returned them and then ended up going with a size 12. You are probably going to have to go up a 1/2, or a full size, to get a good fit. Problem is since the toe area is made of stiff rubber, they won't stretch like sneakers do. They are very warm and comfortable. I would definitely get them again.

Wore 'em in cold weather

I wore these on days where I would find myself walking to class in -20 and below weather. See in Montana, there was about 2 weeks of deep freeze earlier this year. Whenever it was that cold, I would simply slip these boots on and go.

Very nice fit

Had a problem with other winter boots being too big and wide. These are narrower than most other boots and more true to size. Only used them once but so far very happy, seem really well made

Review Title

I love the look of these boots, but i must say they aren't as warm as i thought they'd be and they do indeed run at least a 1/2 size small. Not a bad purchase.

I normally wear size 11 in North Face boots and sneakers, should I get size 11 or go half size up for these boots?

Responded on

these boots run pretty true i wear a 12 and with wool socks these boots fit a little snugg, they are a really good boot.

Responded on

I am a solid 11 and that is what I got and they were great. I usually wear a thicker sock and there is room for that

Awesome

I have the version just before this one (couldn't find it on the website so I'll review this one). If the new one is like the old one, it's awesome! The sole is specially designed to grip on snow like snow tires: the rubber is a special softness, and the tread is specially designed for snow. These things grip where other shoes make you feel like you're walking on a freshly waxed floor with socks on.
Regarding warmth: I've used these in sub-zero temps (I live in Alaska). They definitely perform well. The -40 rating is an ACTIVE rating, though, and must be taken into consideration when planning outdoor excursions. I do not know what the inactive rating would be. I have used these for winter backpacking in Alaska. I also have used them around town when it's really cold out. They aren't so huge and bulbous that you can't discreetly wear them with a pair of jeans. And they are a great go-to boot for emergencies (I ALWAYS have them in the trunk of my car during winter.) Overall, can't say enough good things about this boot!

Worth the money

I wore these to the mall and my feet were on fire but they are great out in the cold (I live in Michigan). My feet stay warm, dry, and comfortable. I would definitely go a half size up. I did and they fit perfectly.

Central New York Mom

I bought these boots for my son who is 18. Always the mom, I wanted him to wear his boots rather than sneakers in the snow. These boots are perfect fit and have been worn regularly since Christmas, often by his dad, brother, and I have even been known to quickly, and secretly, sneak them on to go outside.

very comfy and warm

The boot is very warm and comfortable to wear. They do run a little narrow, so if you have wide feet, this might not be for you. I typically wear an 11 and I had to get a 11.5 for my toes to have enough room.

pro- comfortable, nice looking, well made, very warm, but your feet will not be sweaty. Very stable on snow and ice. Very nice well thought out design. Very light weight, but still sturdy.

cons- Since the boot is considered mid-calf, where it flexes in the front ankle area gets a little indentation or sunken spot. They are not the easiest thing to take off.

Still, I would recommend these boots to anyone because the small things might just be me. For the function and fit, they are perfect.

Really the first boots I've ever bought - very satisfied.

I don't know how I managed to put it off so long, but I moved to Missouri from Texas about ten years ago, and just now bought my first pair of winter boots...

I've spent years ruining pair after pair of leather shoes and sneakers trudging through the muck that accumulates here in the winter from the ashen road materials and rain/snow slush, and the crap that winds up in the sidewalk from various shop owners throwing out their own special mix of ice repellant.

Additionally, I guess my feet are just naturally cold, I never thought much about it until after I bought these boots, but they've always been pretty uncomfortable.

That said, when I bought them I was worried that they would be too warm because it just doesn't get below 0 here in the winter, and it's rarely below 15...

Since I purchased these I've worn them every time it's been raining, every time it's snowed, every time I though I might come across mud or muck, and every time it's been below 45ish. I have to say, I am extremely satisfied. The only thing that bothers me is the pressure around my calf, because I'm just not used to a full boot... but I'm sure that's entirely me. They're just great, they've kept my feet dry, and warm-enough (they're still pretty cool when it's 10 degrees outside, but I can at least feel them now).

Probably the neatest thing to me was that I ran all around elephant rock park a few days ago when it was in the 50's... I know they're not a hiking boot, but I felt very comfortable with them, and they let me run through puddles and muddy areas with my dog without thinking much about it. Pretty nice.

I hope this helps someone else that may be in a similar situation.

Could I use these boots with a set of Tubbs snow shoes?

Responded on

Definitely. The back of the boot, near the heel, has a lip that is specficially made to hold the strap from a snowshoe in place. These would be perfect snow shoe boots if it's really cold out or if you aren't moving fast. If you are doing snowshoe running or really fast walking, you should get a lighter pair of boots or even gore-tex trail shoes with gators to keep your feet from overheating.

Can they be used as regular hiking boots, or only in the snow?

Responded on

They could be used as hiking boots for normal, non-snow conditions, but with 400g of insulation (designed to keep your feet warm down to -40*F), your feet would probably overheat unless it was still winter-like temperatures. Thus, they're pretty much limited to use during the winter, although not necessarily with snow, just colder conditions.

Responded on

I wouldn't use them as hiking boots. They're good for walking around town, shoveling snow, and small adventures. They definitely don't have the support you'd want for a real hike.

Responded on

The sole is specially made for snow. If you use it on bare ground, the sole will wear prematurely (in the same way that driving around on snow tires without snow on the ground wears them down prematurely). But I disagree with Kerry about support for a hike. I have gone winter backpacking in Alaska with these boots with a 50-60 pound pack and had no trouble whatsoever. They obviously don't have the support of a technical mountaineering boot, but for non-technical hiking and backpacking at lower altitudes, these things are fine.
