Not very warm

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

I was very unhappy with these boots. They're awfully cute, but they aren't much apart from that. First of all, the fuzz falls out and gets on everything. Secondly, the purpose of a winter boot is to keep the cold out, but my tennis shoes offer more insulation than these flimsy boots. While they feel soft and plush, they fair very poorly against the cold and wind. Your feet won't be feeling warm without a pair of very good socks. Additionally, don't even try to take these boots out into the rain or snow. After a 10 minute walk down the road in light snow my feet were soaked. These boots are cute and comfortable to wear indoors or on dry days in late fall. They are by no means an outdoor winter boot.

GREAT Boot!!!!

    While I didn't purchase this boot at backcountry, I would like to take the opportunity to tell everyone what a truly wonderful boot it is. I do a lot of hunting therefore I have several boots for the outdoors. But, living in Wisconsin with sometimes very cold weather (-15 today with -30 wind chill) I wanted a pair of light warm boots that I could be warm in and that didn't have soles that get hard and difficullt to walk in. The ruff around the top stays snug and doesn't make my legs red and sore from pressure. They are very light, very warm, water proof and have just enough of a lug sole for traction.

    I bought my boots locally and it was the last pair in my size. So, I am shopping to purchase another pair! Trouble is, I paid twenty dollars less than what I am finding on line. If I don't find them for a bit less I will be forced to pay more! For sure though, I will have more than one pair of these.

    Love them.

      Although the boots look a bit different than on the site, I still think they are cute. I bought them in white in my normal size and they fit perfectly. They are light (feel like clouds), so comfy and the traction is great. I walk in them a couple miles a day. Sometimes my socks get a bit wet, but my feet are NEVER cold in them. I would definitely recommend them and would purchase them again.

      Your feet gets wet from your feet's sweat. These boots are impermiable. I have owned a pair of Northface boots for five years now and my feet does not get wet. These Nuptse are lighter and just as warm, so feet will sweat more. Wear wool socks. I own these by the way. Clean them with a solution of white vinegar and water. It's nice when I don't break my ass on the ice. The best traction ever.

      Great site but not a great boot.

        I ordered the Moonlight Ivory color and they are definitely shinny! The boot is not very thick and feels like you aren't wearing much at all which may be a plus to some. I am a 9.5 or 10 depending on how the shoe is made so I went with a 10 and it was very narrow and way too tight. The boot is very long and narrow and only comes up to mid shin in height. Not very furry in person either and the material feels cheap. I was so excited to get these boots because I loved the look of them online but was disappointed when I got them and returned them. Cute boot in the picture but not what I was looking for. I wish I would have taken a picture of them on me to upload so everyone could see what they look like. All this said though, Backcountry was excellent with the return process, very easy and fast and I already ordered something else from the site. Great company just not a great boot for me. Thanks Backcountry for making the return process so easy!

        These boots are not really cheap in quality. The nylon is very tight and the down fill is 600. That is almost the highest fill out there. Only Cuddledown has higher than that and you have to pay a spectacular price for the 600, so take into consideration the 650 and the 700. The traction alone is well worth the price of the boot. There is nothing cheap about the quality of these boots. It's like walking on air in the heavyness of winter.

        How do the sizes run? Usually a 7. On occasion a 7.5 in shoes if they run narrow or small. Often a 7.5 shoe is too big. In Hunter Boots, i bought a size up to fit the sock liners.

        Write your answer here...Honestly I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to keep them. They are like slippers but im finding one boot more snug than the other (never had this problem before?) so is def go up to 7.5. Give them a shot Backcountrys return policy is great!!

        Is this boot waterproof? I want to wear it in WI while shoveling and snowshoeing but need a waterproof boot. Super cute so I hope it is.... Thanks!

        This boot is more suited for regular everyday runs and citylife. I live in NYC. You need the Northface Greenland boot for shoveling and heavier life like snowshoeing and winter hiking. I sprint to the train station in the Nuptse. I love them. I have another pair that are almost exactly the Greenland (it has the fur around the top is all)and the damned things crush the thin layer of ice on the sidewalk (what a boot!).Imagine.

        How is the heel cup/ankle support with these? The look makes me think more of bootie than boot, but the soles tell a different story... Anyone know how flexible that material is once you get above the foot?

        Best Answer

        I have a AAAA heel and these boots fit fine. Not too snug and support great. Very nice arch support also. When I first saw them I thought "oh poo, another pair of girlie boots" but when I tried them on I was sold. I am an outdoor gal and want my clothing and footware to be just as warm as a male. I resent it when they put frills in womens outdoor gear instead of function. Hard to find great items but these are boots you won't be sorry you bought. The nylon materal is very flexable and with the tie in the front very adjustable. I love mine. Hope this helps.

        How do you clean these boots? My cat peed on them and I dont want to degrade the material trying to get the smell out

        Well, that is unfortunate, I cannot overstate how difficult it is to get that smell out of fabrics. My sister's cat p'd on a bag of mine two years back and after washing, rinsing and multiple other treatments it still reeked. Gave it to a friend while back, still feel bad for that pack.
