It’s 4 a.m., well below freezing, and the dog is whining to be let out. You have two choices: just let the dog go in the living room, or brave the cold and take him outside. Lucky for you, the choice is easy. Slip into the NSE Traction Mule from The North Face, and march Fido outside without getting cold feet. These Mules combine the warmth and water-resistance of a winter boot with the comfort and ease of a slipper. The 500-fill down gives your feet a luxurious feel and keeps them nice and toasty. The soles are an aggressive die-cut rubber to keep you from slipping on the ice and face-planting into whatever mess your pup left.

Awesome three season camping slipper

    I originally got these for spring/summer/fall camping and they're awesome- good traction, warm enough for most mornings and they provide a much needed vacation for your feet after a long day on the trail. They're also great for around the house on colder winter mornings. However, it should go without saying that if you're looking for a winter camping/yurt shoe, step up to some down booties, as these guys lack the waterproofing/ergonomics if you need to handle more than 1" of snow.

    Very delicious

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these to use on a backpacking trip, and they worked brilliantly there, because they were very warm and very comfortable. I decided not to retire them when I got home, and found myself wearing them around the house more and more, and then to school after that. You can wear these as normal shoes because they do in fact have tread on the bottom. One caveat is that the annoying sockliner that is above the padded foam in the sole falls out almost immediately, so you have to wear socks in order for your feet not to generate some serious stank. But considering these were not made to be worn everyday, my two months straight with them on my feet have been rather glorious.

    Very delicious

    Great Warmth & Traction for Camping

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

    I took these backpacking and they were perfect after a long day on the trail. The soles have excellent traction for around camp and they kept my feet plenty warm. I wear a women's 7 normally but ordered a men's 7 and they fit perfect with socks on.

    bad fit

      I had to return these slippers. I ordered the right size but had to squeeze my foot into them. The opening is so narrow that it is way too tight around my ankle. Very uncomfortable!

      Thanks for your review, I'm considering going up half a size, especially since they're just slippers. About your review, how would you describe your ankles? Are you closer to the kankle side or the thin side? I have really thin ankles so it makes a difference in my shoes. Thanks!

      comfort well worth the price

        This website offers a lower price than the actual The North Face website which was an enormous plus. And for an extra $2 I ended up saving $12 for faster (two day) shipping. Their color choices were also a big draw. Needles to say I'm 110% satisfied with the website and my order!

          Very happy!

            I have been searching for a replacement for my previous slipper purchased on BC (Bearpaw atlantic) which I loved dearly. I have found it with the NF traction mule! These slippers are amazingly comfortable (size up though, I'm an 11 and had to send back for size 12 which are perfect) and have stood up well to abuse. I wear them everyday and walk the dogs to the store and even work around the house in them sometimes. For yurt trips they pack well and are super toasty. I recommend!


              I got these for my hike to Everest Base Camp in Nepal. I have been wearing them to be sure they are going to work..I had to put them away for the trip because I became addicted to them..they are really great and will save my feet after a long day hiking.

              I like 'em

                Pros: Comfortable and warm. Unlike skan's review, they grip the tile in my house just fine--no sliding. The wrap-around seam going around the bootie doesn't bother my toes at all so I'm not sure what's going on there. I like the seam because it protects the toe and the soft nylon from getting snagged or ripped. Haven't thus far felt any cold spots. I would say that since they are low cut, heat can easily escape with movement of your feet. If you need more warmth, definitely go for a high-top bootie I'd say.

                expensive, mid quality

                  Warm, but not as much as expected.

                  It has a bulky and very uncomfortable plastic seam in front of the toes.
                  It's warm but it isn't worth its price.
                  It has a cold spot all along the joint of the sole and the upper.
                  They claim to have "supreme traction". Maybe is good on earth but not on tile.
                  It's very expensive.

                  what's 8.0 vs 14.0???

                  I am debating between these and the Columbia Packed Out Omni-Heat Slipper as a camp shoe after a day of backpacking. the North Face was My first choice until I saw the Columbia ones in the store and tried them on. These North Face shoes are EXTREMELY hard to find in store....there is only one store in Colorado that I can find that has them in stock. I would really like to try these before I buy them. I tried on the comumbia pair and they were pretty comfortable and light but I am just wondering what everyone's take is on either of these as a backpacking camp shoe.

                  Are they washable, anyone???
                  Coz they are pretty stinky after wearing them for a long time indoor.
