Description

There are cool kicks and there are kicks for cool weather, but with the notable exception of The North Face Men's Back-to-Berkeley Boots, there are few cool kicks for guys in cool weather. You don't have to be a jeans-in-boots hipster to pull off fashionable pairings with this innovative, insulated and functional footwear--the rugged combination of ballistic mesh polyester and waterproof suede makes a watertight case for utility and versatility. The Back-to-Berkeley Boot has a waterproof and breathable Hydroseal™ membrane that keeps feet dry--even when you're hiking across campus in a deluge. Cool color combinations aside, you won't find the best feature on the Back-to-Berkeley Boot until you turn it upside down and check out the durable TNF Winter Grip™ rubber outsole with triangular, temperature-sensitive Ice Pick™ lugs. Exclusive to footwear from The North Face, these rubber Ice Pick™ lugs actually harden in cold weather for improved traction on hardpack snow and icy walkways. Granted, Berkeley, California doesn't get much snow, but the surrounding hills usually receive a dusting or more. So where should you be during winter weekends when school is out?

Perfect fit
January 06, 2011

I was looking for a pair of boots to handle Northeast winters and that looked sharp in the process. These boots fit the bill. I have a wide foot and I ordered these boots a half size larger than my normal sneakers and they fit perfectly! They're really warm and stylish too! Just waiting for another big snowfall to really put them to the test. If the red laces throw you off, they come with a tamer brown lace as an additional set.

Great Winter Alternative
February 17, 2011

This North Face shoe is a first NF shoe I ever kept. For some reason I always found something that did not work for me. I believe this time North Face is finally on the right track and knows what to do. This shoe particular is very light, warm, and retro-stylish. I especially like the red laces. I think anyone that decides on getting this shoe - would be very happy with their choice.

Pros: Great design, Build quality

They fit perfectly and are very warm! Sizing in these boots are very similar to Nike. Love how they came with interchangeable shoe laces (red shoe laces and also brown shoe laces). Can never go wrong with chosing The North Face.

Best snow boots
January 03, 2011

These are super comfy, warm, and extremely waterproof. Used them in deep powder snow (and snow shoeing) and no wetness at all. They are comfortable and look very cool even with jeans. Cool retro/modern look. THey are very light. And also not outrageously expensive.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value

Great boots!
July 11, 2011

Great boots that combine style with outdoor qualities. They are extra comfortable and warm. First 2 days are a little rough on the foot but later on you'll feel great. I've used them in snow and water with not a single drop inside the boot. Excellent choice, I totally recommend it.

These boots are wonderful!
February 01, 2011

These boots are wonderful! Super-awesome. Flexible and I would consider them water resistant, not water proof. I liked these boots very much. I have been using these for a few weeks. so far. They they will keep your feet warm.

Great Boots
January 03, 2011

This boots look old school which is why I got them. They look better than the pictures when you get them. I thought that the nylon/mesh looked weird because usually that part would be leather, but they make for a good looking boot, and also make it lightweight. The boots are warm, but you'll probably need thick socks. For that reason, order a half size bigger than your regular size.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value

The North Face combines style & functionality
February 15, 2011

What can I say....this is a great boot! I needed a stylish alternative to duck boots in the winter and this definitely filled that void. Not only is it stylish with a retro look but it also is very functional. It is lined and insulated and has kept my feet warm on some very cold days. This boot provides the user with great traction in snow and especially on ice. Some of the treads harden depending on how cold the ground is which is a cool feature. As far as sizing is concerned, I read a number of reviews on this website to get an idea on what size to order. I am 5'-9", 190 lbs and I typically wear a 10.5. My feet are a little wide so I have to be wary of the toe box area. After reading the reviews I decided to go ahead and order a size 11 because it seemed that the consensus was these boots run a half size small. And low and behold they were right! The 11 fit like a glove. I matched it up with a 10.5 Timberland field boot (almost the same cut and style) and it is exactly the same size. So if you are thinking about ordering these boots order a half size up!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value

Awesome Boots For The Price
July 12, 2013

The boots look way better in person than it is shown in the picture. It is very light and comfortable. Took these out on a 3hr hike without breaking them in and had no issues. The only downside IMO, its a little too soft. I have a weak left ankle and because of that, I didn't feel that I got the ankle support that I would like to have. Like others have stated, sizing runs a little smaller than usual. I normally wear a 9.5 and upped to a 10 and it fit perfectly with enough wiggle room for my toes. Overall this was an excellent purchase for the sale price. You get the quality of the boot for half the price.
