Winter warmth and style.
When the morning's so cold that you can hardly bear the thought of stepping outside, the Shellista II Mid Women's Boot from The North Face will make hitting the streets a little more manageable. It's loaded up with PrimaLoft Silver Eco insulation, so your toes will stay toasty on your commute to work or class, and the upper is made of waterproof nubuck leather that's smooth, supple, and totally impervious to snow, sleet, and puddles. A waterproof TPR shell wraps around your feet to keep 'em safe and dry, and the soft knit collar, colored eyelets, and choice of laces helps the Shellista pop a little more than your average winter boot. All the style in the world won't keep you upright, though, so The North Face finished the Shellista off with a TNF Winter Grip Rubber sole, which features temperature-sensitive IcePick lugs to keep you stable as a table on ice, snow, and dry ground.

Coming from a person who loves black (I got the brown pair) and stays cold, I love these boots. I got them in 2 days and you get what you see. The fur in the boot does not go down to the toe. The fur only goes down as deep as the knitted portion of the shoe, but the rest of the shoe is filled with very warm memory foam like cushion. These boots are a little stiff but I expect them to loosen up after breaking them in. They are great for small legs (can adjust if needed to fit leg via laces) and narrow feet. My suggestion is if you nave narrow feet like me get the bigger of the sizes you ware. I ware 7.5-8 I got a size 8 and I still have room to ware footed leggings with socks and I still have wiggle room. If your foot is not narrow I would order a half size up, for example if you ware an 8 get a 8.5. I'm no longer dreading the winter months and long walks through campus since I got these boots. I definitely think they're going to keep me both warm and dry this winter.
I am a size five in regular shoes, this is my first time ordering snow boots. Should I order a six instead?
Hey, Marla -
Thanks so much for reaching out with your question.
These do run "true to size," so I think a size 5 or maybe a size 5.5 would work. If you want to wear a thicker pair of socks, the 6 might fit, but you will likely be more comfortable in a boot that fits well without a large sock.
I have some ideas in mind, feel free to get in contact with me so we can discuss!
