Runs a little small

Very warm and comfortable, easy to get on and off. And this boots is ideal for narrow foot.
Looks great but steer clear!
I thought I would have to look no further for winter boots for my girls next winter. Sadly, I invested in this boot for both of them. I love North Face but this boot design is a huge misfire. It is in no sense of the word "easy" to get on and off. With my youngest for whom I purchased a size 10 and is currently just outgrowing her size 8s, it is a herculean feat to shove her foot to get it into the boot. With her standing up I have to grab her leg and shove downward as hard as I can several times to actually get her foot inside. My oldest for whom I also bought well above her current size, same issue. Needless to say this is not a favorite event for either one of them. The two "huge misfires" are the very short zipper which is too short to open up enough room for the heel to pass easily into the boot. The boot is narrow through the ankle and leg which is great once the boot is on and if there an adequate opening, i.e. zipper, to accommodate such narrowness. And the zippers don't stay up. At all. Ever. My younger daughter's boot's zippers sometimes don't even stay up when they are off her feet. The materials and construction are great but when you have a boot that elicits huge protests and some pain to get on when they have a full size to go before they even "fit", there is huge problem. I am sure I will have to buy both of them different boots for next winter. What a waste. I have encountered this problem before and the only solution is to buy a different, easier boot. Steer clear!
For a 4 yr old...
Daughter loves them and they keep her feet toasty warm in the snow. Easy to get on and off and still look great after a lot of wear and tear.
