    Exude elegance in fickle weather.

    Detailed with a full-grain leather upper, rustproof metal eyelets, and richly appointed colorways, The North Face Women's Ballard Lace II Boot brings upscale sophistication to your transitional season wardrobe and winter season wear. The leather is treated with a water-shedding PU coating, keeping your feet pleasantly dry through Mother Nature's onslaught of rain, sleet, and snow.

    Ensuring maximum grip across a wide variety of conditions, the aggressively lugged sole features IcePick rubber lugs for unrelenting traction. This temperature-sensitive rubber prevents you from slipping on ice-slicked surfaces and snowy streets. Suddenly, commuting through winter's wrath of apocalyptic snowstorms is that much easier.

    • PU-coated leather upper for water-resistant protection
    • Rustproof metal eyelets withstand soaking-wet conditions

    Perfect casual boot !

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I wear these everyday come cold weather and my feet stay dry, warm, and happy ! Love the lace system that makes it easy to get on/off in just a minute. Just enough cushion for comfort and support to stay active. Worth the cost and will keep for years.

    Beautiful and tough boot!

      I needed a good pair of boots that could handle a northeast winter. I received these last week and I absolutely love them! Not only are they functional, but they’re super cute too! I love that they’re not bulky, heavy boots and feel very light on my feet while also keeping out the cold and the rain. They did rub my ankles a bit the first few times I wore them, but I’ve had them less than two weeks and that’s already stopped being an issue. The only downside with these boots is that the leather seems a little fragile. My excited dog stepped on my foot and her nails left a scratch mark. But hey, I bought them for bad weather so I know they’re not going to stay in pristine condition. Buy them!

      Solid boot!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I moved from the desert to a mountain town a few months ago and was in desperate need for some good boots to get me through the harsh winter. I didn't want to spend a ton of money so the price, especially for North Face, totally fit the bill. Cute and fully functional. They survived our first big snow like champs. Would recommend for sure. The only negative I have is that they do tend to rub against my ankle unless I keep them really loose or wear multiple thick socks.

      Solid boot!

      Everyday Boot

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

      I just purchased these and have worn them almost every day since. I love the look, and they are a great functional boot. Whether its taking the dogs for a walk or going out for the evening, these boots fit the bill. Love the fit overall, although they are a little stiff to start (which is expected for a leather boot).

      New Favorites

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Recently got these to replace my old favorites. Normal women's "combat" styled boots are thin and flimsy with unnecessary buckles and zippers, but these are durable, simple, comfortable, and surprisingly warm. They looked a little too new straight out of the box for my taste. After shuffling through leaves and kicking some snowbanks, they were more my speed.

      Style and Function

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Love these boots! I needed a new pair for day to day wear and these are super comfortable and keep my feet warm, even with plain athletic socks. They have a great grip and are really easy to get on and off. I purchased the lighter color and it's fairly true to the picture, although they aren't as shiny as you'd expect; they're still very stylish boots.

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

      These boots look exactly like they do in the picture and look great on. Also very comfortable. I am between a size 6 and 6.5 depending on length. I went with 6.5 and it was the right choice.

      All aboot it

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

      Bought the Dachsund color for my gal pal because it reminded me of a Dachsund. Sadly I do not have a female foot otherwise I would buy them for myself.

      The North Face Boot

        Really fits true to size. Very comfortable, warm. Wanted the dark look. Color is not coffee bean. Light like the other picture of the lighter boot. Said coffee bean on box, other wise like the boot. Hate the color.

        1 Year Later and Still Love 'Em

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I am in love with these boots! Check out my previous review for more details:

        I've been looking for a casual street boot that has the same amount of function as say, a hiking or approach shoe. The problem I have with most women's casual boots is that they usually have useless features, like a fashion zipper even though the boot is meant to be a lace up. Or the soles are hard plastic and do not provide any sort of support or traction.

        The Ballard boots are everything I was looking for. They get 5 stars for comfort, appearance, and function. The metal eyelets are a smart touch as they tend to last longer than traditional fabric ones. I also love that there's no fashion zipper -- just the laces. The soles are made out of a durable rubber and provide really great support and traction. There is also enough space to wear thick wool socks on colder fall days. Also, the top of the boot comes a few inches above my ankle, providing more warmth and ankle support and making it easy to wear with cuffed jeans or socks over leggings.

        As for the "poor quality" of leather, I have to disagree with the rest of the reviews. I purchased these boots expecting a more rustic, rugged look to the leather, and that's exactly how they look in person. Yeah, the photos are just bit shinier, but if you want a smooth/polished leather boot, these are not for you.

        Update** I would not consider these the best choice for hiking, but they could work for leisurely hikes that don't have a ton of obstacles or elevation gain.

        Comfortable Boots

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

        These boots are not only beautiful with their color, cafe brown. It is also extremely comfortable. I tried walking around with these boots few times and they were definitely am what I looking for. I would recommend buying these boots

        Great boots!

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

        I love these boots! They are super comfortable to walk around in and they look amazing! The coffee brown color is slightly lighter than pictured, but I happen to like the actual color more.

        Dashund Coffee Brown

          It's a very comfortable shoe. The inside is lined comfortably. The actual color of the shoe is slightly lighter in color than shown. It's more of a tan than a coffee brown. Regradless a good purchase.


          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I bought these boots to wear with leggings in the winter. They have been awesome! My toes stay dry. I receive tons of compliments when I wear them, too. I have a wide toe box and narrow heel and these fit well. They are more stylish than functional, though. I wouldn't wear them on real hikes or for anything other than everyday wear.

          They're okay

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I was pretty excited about these boots. The tread is definitely very solid, and I like how the boots look. The scratchy leather doesn't bother me too much; they still look nice. However, these boots dig into my ankles terribly! If you have bony ankles, you might want to consider something else. The hard piece of leather around the base of the heel cuts too high up for me. I think it's starting to get better after a good amount of use, but I wish I would have just returned them and gotten another pair of boots.
