The North Face Men's Back-To-Berkeley Boots

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?

  • Upper: durable polyurethane-coated ballistic polyester mesh
  • Mudguard: waterproof suede
  • Membrane: waterproof and breathable Hydroseal™
  • Insulation: 100 g PrimaLoft® Eco
  • Die-cut EVA midsole
  • Ortholite™ sockliner
  • Outsole: rugged TNF Winter Grip™ rubber outsole
  • Ice Pick™ temperature-sensitive rubber snowflake lugs
  • Weight (per boot): 482 g, 1 lb

nice BOOT !
i was searching for a good looking boot that can handle a harsh winter, these are just what i was looking for... a great boot, very comfortable, i would recommend. I usually wear size 10 to 10.5 and ordered this in a 10.5 and it fits just right.

Great boots!
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.

Great Winter Alternative
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.

The North Face combines style & functionality
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!
