    Details

    A few things work well at any point in life, like bibs and booties.

    Until you wore The North Face Men's NSE ThermoBall Traction Mule II Bootie, you didn't understand the appeal of lounging or leisure wear. Now, this water-resistant insulated bootie has you considering brushed velvet leisure suits and shiny nylon track suits to wear around the fire after a full day of hiking. The recycled ripstop upper resists water so you won't get out of dish duty, but at least the Thermoball insulation will warm your foot while you dip dinner plates into the lake for a quick rinse. The die-cut rubber soles gives you traction on wet or slick surfaces, and won't shred your tent floor. Whether you're sitting around a campfire or your kitchen table on a Sunday morning, warm and happy feet are a beautiful thing.

    • Primaloft Thermoball synthetic insulation
    • EVA and foam footbed

    Great Slippers

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    Great for Colorado winters, i wear these around the house and when i take the dog out. Very soft and thick insole. Good sole, even when I walk on the ice it has good grip. Normally I'm a size 13, but I ordered a 14 in these slippers and that was the right choice. Great slippers.

    Great shoe, but a bit on the small side

      Ordered this shoe, and I got it 2 days later. Excellent service backcountry! However, i followed the north face's recommendation and ordered it one size down from what I usually wear (size 12 Nikes). Big mistake. The fit was too tight. So i just gave it to my father and decided to order another one. Too bad the color and size that I needed were gone. Shoe is so great I ordered one from the north face website. Backcountry definitely gives a better service; almost 24 hrs later and the north face haven't shipped my mule yet. In addition to free shipping and rarely any tax, I would always recommend going the goatworthy route!

      Perfect for the intended uses

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      I bought a pair of these for my son and a pair for myself. I needed a good winter house shoe and my son needed something to wear to swim practice and meets in the cold weather. They are very warm. The grip is good both outside and on wet floors. We both recommend them.

      Comfortable, Warm & Reasonably Priced

        I've wanted a pair of these as slippers to wear around the house for a long time and am very pleased I finally decided to pull the trigger. They're really comfortable and surprisingly warm. I was particularly impressed by what I thought was a pretty reasonable price. Highly recommended.

        Better than sandals at the campsite!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        I like these better than sandals at the campsite! If I ever anticipate the need to cross streams/water above my boots, I'll take sandals instead. The tread on these make it a little difficult to remove dirt/mud/debris. Overall, great buy, though!

        Not 7oz

          Tech description says weight is 7oz. I weigh everything that enters my packs. It's 1lb 1oz. Other than that they warm. Prob gonna wind up using them as house shoes. To heavy for weight conscious backpackers.

          Not 7oz

          Comfy and Durable

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: Runs small
          • Size Bought: 8

          I'd have to say these do run a little small for slippers, especially booties where one may use a thicker sock during a yurt trip.

          Other than that, the rubber sole is the the best feature here. The added durability makes these a great option for venturing outside.

          I generally where a size 7.5-8 shoe, purchased a size 8 which fit snug at first, but has packed out a little. If i were to pick up another pair I would pick up a 8.5 or 9.

          Perfect!

          • Size Bought: 9

          Wonderful product, husband LOVES them, very warm, great for walking to and from the car after skiing, walking the dog when there is snow on the ground, runs SMALL, order up one size.

          Tried & True

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size

          Buy these every year for my husband, he loves them. They have hard soles so you can wear them outdoors in winter. They changed up the style which prevents them from expanding into clown shoes like they used to. I waterproof them and they hold up.

          Issue one - they only last one season with everyday wear. My husband wears them non-stop, indoors, outdoors, fall through spring. With this type of heavy wear, you can only get one season out of them.

          Issue two - they are meant to be worn without socks (I think), and they get SO STINKY. The insides need to be pre-treated with something to keep the odor out. By the end of the cold season, you can smell these shoes a mile away.

          Despite those two things, I would still recommend them. Much cheaper than buying boots every year, much easier to wear than boots (no stuffing your foot in, getting it just right, heavy feet, etc.), and very comfy.

          great house shoe

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
          • Fit: True to size

          my wife gets very cold feet. these shoes seem to work like magic. she had to take them off the first night she wore them as her feet were too hot.
          highly recommended for indoor slipper

          Love em

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size

          I bought these as a present for a friend and ended up having to pick up my own pair after hearing him talk them up. His wife and other friends are constantly wearing them at his house and everyone wants a pair. They're very warm, comfortable, and best of all, have an amazing outer sole. The grip is perfect. I use these primarily outside but they're also pretty nice for around the house too.
          This past weekend I packed up little cottonwood canyon with a group of people and took these along to put on after the hike. People made fun of me not wearing socks and looking silly wearing slippers, but my feet were happy and warm all night! Super easy to slip on and walk around the lake shore without worrying about slipping or getting stabbed by a sharp rock/stick. And they're definitely a lighter option than bringing up a spare set of sneakers.
          As other people have mentioned, the cuff is a little rigid at first when trying to pull these on. It gets a little easier after some uses but I have mostly just folded down the back part of the slipper under my heel. It' s a lot looser fit, but doesn't bother me at all when I'm sitting around the campfire or just walking to my tent. When I need a little more secure fit, I fold up the heel and quickly pull it up around the ankle. Not much of a hassle in my opinion.
          Also, the camo print looks dope. Just as pictured. Definitely a great product if you need some slippers for the outdoors!

          Terrific

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: Size 11 (same as my other shoes)

          I was a little concerned with the fit when I got them, but after a week they are perfect. Unbelievably warm, and the rubber sole means I never have to take them off. I've thrown them on in the morning

          Terrific

          Love the hard sole

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size

          These slippers are amazing! I previously owned several pairs of the NSE Tent Mule Slipper and loved them, but the soft soles wore out very quickly. This pair is every bit as comfortable, but with a much more durable sole.

          Durable sole is a great upgrade

          • Fit: Runs small

          I've had down booties in the past without rubber soles and they last about a week before they start making a feathery mess.

          Great indoor/outdoor slippers, these are very warm on cold winter nights. I usually buy a new pair of slippers each winter because it's so hard to get the smell out of them after a while.

          hello. I had the same problem. what I did is I packed the shoe up with newspapers, stuffed them inside the shoe overnight. In the morning, I took out the paper and the shoes smelled great. I think the paper soaks up the odor and moisture. Hope this helps. works on any shoes.

          Sleeping bags for your feet

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: Runs small

          I tell everyone they should have a pair of these in their closet. After a long hard day of shredding with stiff ski boots, I love to slip my feet into these. They are super comfortable, water-resistant, and have pretty solid rubber sole. Although with the low-cut I don't suggest trekking through snow in them. But for wearing around outdoors or simply while you're watching t.v. they're awesome!

          Bad design

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

          I got these booties with high hopes, the material and weight appeared to be ideal. However, upon receipt it became apparent that it has a design flawed and weight was bogus (7 ounces for size 7!). I do not have a high instep but was unable to get into the bootie with a thin sock. The stitching around the entry is not flexible. I think it has been discontinued by Northface, as I could not find it in their store.

          tight on the cuff

          • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
          • Fit: True to size

          Bought these for my Dad after he had hip surgery and needed a good slipper with grip. He loves the shoe, but they were extremely hard to get on when we first got them. Not being able to bend his leg very much this created a problem in getting the really tight cuff over his foot. Seems like a really good product and a tight cuff in a camping situation would probably be nice to keep cold air out, but for our purposes they didn't work very well. still giving it 4 stars for construction and warmth.

          North Face ThermoBall Traction Mule II

          • Fit: True to size

          Needed a lite weight backpack/campsite shoe. These fit the bill. Good for getting out of the sack for a morning relief and getting my other gear on. They are tight around the arch at first but have loosened up. Should last a season or more if I'm careful with them.

          They are warm.
