Great boot size runs small

    I take a 10 1/2 but with this boot had to go with a 13. Comfortable and warm.


    good general boot

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    These work great for general use, shoveling snow, tubing, that type of stuff, just your regular old snow boot. They are a bit on the small side, I had to go up 1/2 size. On not so cold days I used a thinner marino wool sock that worked nicely.


    Would not recommend

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These boots feel tight but ok to size. They may be waterproof but definitely not breathable. My feet always wet after a day on the mountain in them. More over my socks slide down then I walk longer distances in them and make a ball under the hill. They smell not so good either - I never had this problem with other boots, so may be its poor material they used.


    Good boots

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Definitely order 1 size up. They feel great and perform great. Just a little tight with all the padding.


    Runs really small and narrow.

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs small

      Size Purchased: 9

    The boot runs really small and narrow. If you have blood circulation issues this boot is not for you. it runs really narrow and small. I ordered half size above what I would normally use and this boot was squeezing my foot. Also one of the backcountry fine prints is that they charge $6.99 for returns. I would rather shop with Zappos.


    Great boot, runs VERY small

    • Fit:Runs small

    I bought the boot at a great price during a Backcountry sale. I am a 10.5 and bought an 11. I could barely fit my foot in the boot. I would suggest buying at least 1 - 1.5 sizes bigger, especially if you are going to wear winter-weight socks.


    Runs small

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs small
    • Height: 5'11"
      Weight: 160 lbs
      Size Purchased: 11.5

    These boots run really small. Im a size 10 in most street shoes, i tried a 9.5, 10, and 10.5... they all fit incredibly snug due to padding. The size 11.5 fit perfectly tho very bulky and luggy... they are amazing at keeping your feet warm and dry. I live in NYC and walk alot so i wouldn't recommend them for long walks but are perfect for the occasional blizzards we get here from time to time. I would recommend these to anyone who likes to stay warm in freezing temperatures.

    Any idea if the sizing is similar to the TNF Snowsquall, or does this run even smaller (sounds like it might)

    They run very small... get a size to a size and a half bigger than your true size.



    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs small

    Working at and the number of times I have had to either exchange or return any boot from The North Face, I would not recommend their boots to anyone.

    DO NOT get your regular size if you do purchase them. Go anywhere from a 1 to even 2 sizes up.

    The insulation is super puffy and I've heard it described as "balloon-like".


    Great boot - runs small

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs small
    • Height: 6'0"
      Weight: 220 lbs
      Size Purchased: 12

    If you have read reviews from several sites, you will find sizing comments all over the map -- anything from sized just right to runs 2 sizes too small. For me, with a 10 1/2 street shoe and replacing an old size 11 Columbia Bugaboot, I tried a size 12 in the Chilkat II. I still found it way too snug in the toebox even though when feel where my toe is from the outside, it looks like there should be plenty of room. If it fits for you, you will probably enjoy this boot.

    Note that the eyelets are anchored with plastic. Not so with the Chilkat II Luxe.


    Not water proof

      This boot is not water proof despite the fault claimed tags on the boot


      Small is an understatement

      • Fit:Runs small

      These boots are almost two sizes too small. I wear a size 10, and I couldn't even get my foot into a size 11!

      Gifted for the Holidays:

      • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
      • Fit:True to size

      This was a present from my lady over the holidays and they're not for me, personally. That isn't to say they wouldn't work well for someone else, but I simply didn't like this product.

      The boot is really thick and could be said to be "clunky."

      Though warm, they feel more like a snowboard boot than mobile winter boot. The sizing was spot on and color true to what is depicted online; I just haven't been a winter boot kind of guy in my entire life.

      Does anyone have any thoughts on how much these will pack out/whether they will actually pack out? I ordered ~1/2 size bigger than I normally wear (and a full size larger than I measure on a Brannock device) so I ordered the Size 13 but they are very tight with the ends of my toes jammed up against the front of the shoe. I certainly wouldn't want to go on a multiple mile hike in these right now. On the other hand, if they are going to pack out reasonably quickly, I don't want to switch up to Size 14 and discover they are much too big once they pack out.

      I ordered a half size larger and the fit is perfect - including one pair of wool socks.


      Great Boots!

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times
      • Fit:Runs small

      Super warm and gets the job done! Im a size 12 and got the 13's but had to return cause they were still to small due to the extra padding. Got the 14's and they are a perfect fit.

      I ordered size 11 and they fit like a size 9.5. If this is happening so frequently the company should be making changes.


      Great Boot, Run small

        I wear size 13 or 14 shoes depending on brand so was hoping 14 the largest they had would fit but it didn't.


        Great boots, run small

        • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
        • Fit:Runs small

        My husband loved these boots, but they run small. He normally wears an 11 - 11.5 and ordered a 12 based on other reviews. The 12's were still too small and had to be returned. They are a great-looking pair of boots.


        Good quality boots

        • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit:Runs small

        I used these boots ones, but liked them from the moment I tried them. Good quality and construction of boots. It feels comfortable and warm. Because of insulation I suggest to take half or even full size bigger. I hope boots will last long time.


        Awesome winter crushing boot!

        • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
        • Fit:Runs small

        Gave to my father for Christmas, he is ecstatic about the quality and fit of these boots. They fit snugly and provide great support and reliable traction on icy and snowy surfaces. Truly waterproof and keeps the cold out and the toes nice and warm.
