The Back-To-Berkeley Redux Men's Leather Boot is The North Face's answer to the question, "if I don't know where I'm going today, what shoes should I wear?"

Cool boot, tongue oddly short and laces
I like the look of these boots, and they do feel pretty comfortable. I would not do more than a one day hike in these boots. I didn't get these boots for hiking, I got these boots for travel in the winter where I can do some light hiking and also cruise around the city. My biggest issue with these boots is that the tongue is too short. The laces hit the very top of the tongue, I am hoping this will not be a major problem but it could potentially be. My other is that the laces are crazy long. For a boot, they are one of the best looking on the market. The boot runs slightly slightly large.

Lightweight, durable, very water resistant. Very comfortable. The insulation is very warm.. on 40 degree days my feet are toasted!

I'm a pretty true 9.5M and these did technically fit my foot, in that my toe didn't really hit the front. I also think the toe box was wide enough. The only thing that threw me is that the boot has a 3-9mm drop from heel to toe, but almost all of this happens in the ball/toe portion. It's not an even drop. Maybe all boots are this way, all I have for reference is a North Face Gore-tex boot from 2012, but it was a little weird to me. The light weight also made me wonder after the quality. But the leather felt real and I'm sure it's water tight. Just not my boot.

Crazy lightweight and comfortable
These may be the most comfortable shoes/boots of any style that I've ever owned. I get extra discount from here: coupon-code.info

Great city and mountain boots
These boots are great for around town in the wintertime and I also really like to wear them on my way up to the mountain because they are a bit looser fitting and they don't make my feet sweat so I have nice dry socks when I put my ski boots on. I also have a pair of Forsake's and they are so warm that I get wet socks on the way up to the hill. Not the most tech or waterproof boots but for around town and on the way up to the hill they do a great job.

Believe the hype
I bought these to use as my everyday boots as we've been hammered with winter storms in here in the PNW and these boots rock. The long and short of it is that they are surprisingly warm and waterproof for their weight. They don't feel like a big clonky winter boot, but are lighweight and comfortable. They leather gains personality as it gets broken in, they dry quickly if you get them soaked, and they just look great. I ended up sizing down and for reference, Scarpa fits my feet well.

Stick and Sprint
Have you ever had to run in snowboots? You know, everyone left you at the car while you were putting on a backpack and locking up and their chatting it up as they walk away. It's hard isn't it? Your ankles are twisting, and as you push off, your foot slides out early and your ankle is now level to your shoulder. Forget those worries! These boots keep you on the ground and stabilized! When walking through the city, you're looking stylish, chic, and truly and man of fashion. The only way that you can go wrong with these is with sizing. They do fit a little large but it still works for my wide feet.

Not gonna slip in these
Purchased these from my brother and this is what he said: Ok, I love these shoes. I wanted something warm that I wouldn't slip in. Purchased another pair that had NO traction and returned them immediately. I've been walking a lot this winter and these were comfortable right out of the box. They are warm and stylish. What's not to like?

Bought these three years ago and the left and right soles both separated a few months in at the rear with normal use. have been rocking shoe glue to keep them from falling apart since. I gave them two because they look dope but really not a fan of TNF footwear now.

Very comfy and stylish
These boots are pretty lightweight and I don't feel tired wearing them all day long. They look really cool wherever you go and won't let keep you warm and dry in any weather.

Right out of the box I was concerned because the tabs on the back pulled right off. Usually I don't like those little loops on the heel of boots anyway so I didn't mind it too much, but still. Other than that I've worn them about everyday for a few weeks. Snow, rain, slush no problem. Stylish, functional and comfortable.

Hey Barrett! Thank you so much for your review! I am happy to hear you like your boots!

I Needed a good pair of go to everyday boots for the winter. I settled on these and have been wearing them pretty much every day this winter. Super comfortable right out of the box, no break in at all I wore them for a full night walking around outside the first day I got them with no issues. Light insulation keeps my feet nice and warm while walking outside but not too warm once I get inside for the day. Have walked through plenty of snow and slush with them and not gotten wet yet, but even more awesomely after wiping them down they still look new, no water spotting, salt stains, etc. The soles also offer great grip in wet and slippery winter conditions, shoveling the inclined driveway is much better in these. As far as sizing goes they run ever so slightly large, but not large enough to size down, I tried and ended up sticking with the size I normally wear. I just wear thick socks with them now and they fit fine.

I bought these boots for my nephew he loves them. They are comfortable and durable.

These are super comfortable, supportive, warm, but not too hot, and everyone compliments them when I wear them. They were a touch narrow (I have a wide forefoot) at first, but the material quickly broke in and now fits perfectly.

Got this as a gift for my brother and bought two sizes just in case one fit better- he loved them and my dad loved them so much too that he kept the other size.

Solid Boots for any Weather
These are one of best boots I've ever owned! They look amazing, are warm, and repel water. I recommend them to anyone who has to walk in inclement weather and wants to look good too.

These boots were bought for my nephew, he loves them. They are put together well

Definitely worth it!!
After a year of wearing these boots, I cannot recommend them enough! They're incredibly comfortable and look good, so you can easily wear them on the trail or in the city. I wear them as an everyday boot, as well as on hikes, and they've performed well in the rain, snow and simply while walking all day long while sightseeing on vacation. During the spring and summer months, they are a little warm but not uncomfortable for me. If you're looking for a good looking and well-performing boot, definitely give these a try!

Had to send them back
Shoes rubbed on the instep. Not sure if this was a product defect issue. Not enough padding in tongue. Bottom felt hard and lack enough support. Had to return them. Still looking for a good comfortable pair of boots.

It's good and great to have it. Feeling warm inside during cold weather (about -15)

What's the difference between this pair of shoes and the one without "Redux?" http://www.backcountry.com/the-north-face-back-to-berkeley-boot-mens?CMP_SKU=TNF5453&MER=0406&skid=TNF5453-GIBRBRBN-S13&CMP_ID=PLA_GOc001&mv_pc=r101&utm_source=Google&utm_medium=PLA&mr:trackingCode=16C8370D-AB45-E511-80F1-005056944E17&mr:referralID=NA&mr:device=c&mr:adType=plaonline&mr:ad=79923402277&mr:keyword=&mr:match=&mr:tid=pla-95934489397&mr:ploc=9032152&mr:iloc=1013585&mr:store=&mr:filter=95934489397&gclid=Cj0KEQiA-4i0BRCaudDcrrnDi6kBEiQAZSh5f953tWAnPiQN9-jDOGAkkm8oY0DdVClc5ua4Eq9-sBcaAsD98P8HAQ&gclsrc=aw.ds#review Didn't see an obvious difference after comparing the specs and description.

Hey Ian, The main difference is going to be the leather material in the upper. The Redux feature a full grain leather and the standard back to berkeley features a PU coated Mesh and Suede upper. I find the Redux to be more supple in the upper. Let me know if you have other questions.
