    Details

    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.

    • Richly appointed boot for transitional seasons
    • PU-coated leather upper for water-resistant protection
    • Rustproof metal eyelets withstand soaking-wet conditions
    • Ortholite ReBound footbed cushions your every step
    • IcePick lugs grip onto icy streets and snowy sidewalks

    Do not recommend

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The leather isn't shiny and is MUCH rougher than pictured. They also scuff very easily. I wore them for about a month anyway because I really just needed some water resistant boots but they lost all water resistance and now become completely soaked at the first sight of rain. I got them on sale and still feel I over paid.

    Love my NF Ballard Lace II Boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This boots are great, the color that I ordered was Coffee Bean Brown /Caper Berry Green, the boots are the same as the picture.. no difference even the leather matches the picture and they look and feel fantastic. Don’t believe the bad reviews !! I’m glad I purchased the boots. I highly recommend this boots.

    Love my NF Ballard Lace II Boots

    Love them!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After I purchased the boots (I got the dachshund brown), I saw the reviews online about the leather not matching the picture and was a little nervous, once I received them they looked exactly like the picture! They're great. Comfortable, well made, stylish. They check all of the boxes. Highly recommend!

    I want to love them

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

    I ordered the lighter pair. They fit true to size, but they don't look like they do online. The material has a cheap appearance, lighter color than I expected with a gritty feel. I can't decide if I want to keep them. They're almost cute, but I'm disappointed if I'm being totally honest.

    New favorite winter boots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The leather wasn't quite the quality I was expecting but I love these boots nonetheless. I usually wear a size 7 and a 7 fit perfectly even with my wool socks. The boots are warm and waterproof with a decent grip even on icy walkways. They've kept my feet toasty and dry through this Michigan winter.

    Ballard Boot Goofin'

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I agree with others in the sense that these look very different in person than online but with that being said I don't hate them- I still kept them (and I'm so glad I did but I had to take away a star for them looking different than pictured). The pictures make the leather look shiny, stiff, and "classier" but it's more rustic and distressed looking in real life. The leather was lighter colored than pictured and wasn't smooth- it was a tad gritty but I still liked them! They fit very true to size and are extremely comfortable and perfect for walking around in the snow for extended amounts of time! I usually wear these when I need to take the train to work in colder weather. They are a classic looking boot that holds up well and has a good, durable grip to the sole.

    My favorite boot HANDS DOWN!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have these boot as well a pair in suede. I absolutely love them. You can dress them up or down and they are so comfortable. I have had my pair for 3 years, putting them through the wringer. Worn them to festivals as well as in the snow. The leather is pretty worn but I haven't had a single leak. Love Love Love!

    Not what I expected

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    These are a great comfortable boot but I was definitely expecting a dressier more firm leather. The leather is very soft and they are definitely a boot that would be better suited camping than everyday going to work in the winter.

    Love these boots!!!

      I live in NC so I figured these boots would be great for a mild winter. However ....I found myself in Boston for work during a massive snow storm/freeze and though I considered buying a pair of snow boots for the week, i decided that it would be cheaper to just replace these north face boots after I ruined them in the snow and slush. Spoiler alert: They didn’t ruin!!! They held up, kept my feet warm, kept out moisture, and still look great. Will need to buy another pair eventually because these boots are the best and apparently can double as snow boots if needed.

      Great for casual use

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These boots are really comfortable and look great! They fit true to size and I can wear them with just about anything. I gave 4 stars though, because they're already starting to leak a little. Other than that, great boots!

      Great Boot

        These boots are super comfortable. As many of the reviews have said, the leather seems it little cheap.. it has a funny texture to it. It looks great though! I love the wrap around laces, very unique.

        Perfect boot

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I love these boots! I live in a mountain town and they are perfect for walking through snow and ice while also being light enough to wear all day at the office. I was worried about them rubbing on my ankles (per reading reviews prior to purchasing) but i was lucky and didn't have any issues. Size wise, I can usually wear a 7-7.5 depending on brand, and so I got a 7.5 thinking I'd be wearing thick socks with these. The 7.5s were a big too big, and the 7 with socks fit great! I was also worried about them fitting my calves (I have thick calves), but these fit perfectly and have the ability to accommodate all sizes. Overall the quality is great, the shoes are super comfy and the style is very cute! Definitely the perfect boot for me!

        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.

          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.
