Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.
Keen Voyageur Mid A little stiff but great.

This shoe fits like a glove. entry and exit is very easy, especially for an oldie like me who can't bend down very easily anymore. But the ankle collar is very stiff, this hurts when I stand on an incline or steep bank...I am hoping this will soften a little as I wear-in the boots. The look is very nice, great support, I like the toe rubber as it saved my toes from getting crushed by a dropped rock. (I use my boots for low-stress hiking and mostly heavy duty gardening. The color is excellent and the value was definitely there. I would give this shoe a 5 if it weren't for the overly stiff ankle collar.

The North Face Camryn Fashionable

Reviewer: Kim from Colorado, HI
Fashionable shoe but tight around my calves making it a little difficult to put on and take off. Also, part of the shoes starts to bend in near the ankle. I haven't received any blisters from it yet but if I were to walk in them for long periods of time, I'm sure I will. Overall it's a really good looking boot but some improvements could definitely be made.

Sorel Slimpack Pac Boot Practical winter boots!

Reviewer: Inchik from Toronto, CA
The fit is true to size and I have very narrow feet. This boot is a good "slim fit" option to the original Sorel fit, they do not overpower your look. The boots have a very soft lining inside, which makes them super comfy but not too warm, you will still need to wear a fairly warm sock with them if you want to stay warm on cold winter days. You can also wear these boots in Spring slush on a thin sock. I really like the color combination in these particular boots, goes well with a lot of pieces in my wardrobe. Overall I would definitely suggest these boots to anyone who needs a pair of practical winter boots and has thin to regular size feet.

The North Face Brianna II Perfect for cold/wet days

Reviewer: Melissa from Detroit, MI
I purchased these boots a few weeks ago based on reviews I read on various sites. I've worn them everyday while walking my dog in the freezing cold, snow, rain, slush, etc. My feet have always stayed warm and dry, which was exactly what I was looking for. The calf is a little snug but I have this problem with most boots. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a warm, waterproofwinter boot.

The North Face Greenland Zip II Excellent boot, but buy larger

Reviewer: 35 year old active mom. from Milwaukee, WI
This boot is great, but I would buy a 1/2 size larger. I usually wear a 7.5 or 8. I bought an 8 and it is a little tight. These boots will definately keep your feet warm and they have great treads on the bottom.
