The North Face Chilkat III Boot - Women's

A cold-weather boot built for sub-zero temps.

When the temperatures are sub-zero, you need a boot that's built to tackle those extremes. Enter the Women's Chilkat III Boot from The North Face for all your cold-weather footwear needs this winter. The North Face used waterproof suede and PU-coated leather for the uppers, as well as thermo-plastic rubber for even more waterproof protection. Because being dry won't help if you're still cold, The North Face added 200-gram Heatseeker synthetic insulation as well as a fleece collar for warmth. Whether you're on your feet all day or just for an hour or so, you'll appreciate the support and stability of the compression-molded EVA midsoles. To help keep you upright and not slipping around everywhere, Winter Grip rubber outsoles were used along with IcePick temperature-sensitive lugs for the best traction in all possible conditions.

Sturdy and warm!

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

These shoes are exactly what i was looking for. I've had older versions and enjoyed them. These boots protect from water and melted snow and keep your feet warm in the process. The inside of the boot is filled with HeatSeeker 200 gram insulation. This makes the boot toasty and fuller. I ordered a 1/2 size up and it worked well for me. I have medium width feet but if I had wide feet i don't know that these shoes would be a good fit.

Happy toasty feet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Size Bought: 6

North face sizes are a bit of a hit and miss. I normally wear a size 6 for other brands, I bought an Ultra Fastpack GTX and size 5.5 was perfect. I then tried to purchase the ultra fastpack GTX II with a size 6 based on the reviews saying that it runs small. That turned out to be way too big, felt more like a 7 for other brands. So this time, when it said "runs small", I bought my normal size 6 and it fits just fine. I wished north face would actually make shoes with proper sizes. It's all too inconvenient having to return them and sometimes they don't even have the size I need.
But these shoes are great, probably equivalent to 200g Thinsulate and it should be good to - 10 or -15 Celsius. I've only tried them in -7C and it was comfortable. My feet normally get cold even in leather boots.

Great for snowshoeing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8

Works great for the purpose, has built in area on heel to hold back strap in place. Ordered a half size larger based on reviews but had to return it for the my normal size which fits great. Recommended for all the people that complained about the heel strap slipping on the Vermont Tubbs snowshoe

Nice boot

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

Bought these for my stepdaughter. They run small and I had to return them the first time. Ordered a size bigger.

Would you have size 7 coming soon? Thank you

Hi there,

Unfortunately we do not have any more ordered to come in at this time, sorry about that!

Not worth it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

After reading all the reviews I decided to buy these boots. When i first saw them They were really bulky but i thought it was worth it if they will keep my feet warm; I have used them a few times in the negative temperatures in Chicago and I could still feel my feet cold. So for the price and the look these boots are not worth it.


    I don't know about all the negative comments. These are perfect. I wear an 8. I ordered an 8. They fit perfect even with thick gym socks on. They are comfortable and cushiony. They are not clunky at all. In fact for SNOW boots they are quite light weight.

    Working at and the number of times I have had to either exchange or return any boot from The North Face, I would not recommend their boots to anyone.

    DO NOT get your regular size if you do purchase them. Go anywhere from a 1 to even 2 sizes up.

    The insulation is super puffy and I've heard it described as "balloon-like".

    Don't order your regular shoe size

    I LOVE these boots. They are super warm and comfortable. I have never been able to keep my feet warm in snowy weather no matter what shoes or socks I wore until now. I can't express how great these boots work.

    I originally ordered my regular shoe size which was a mistake. Because these boots are so well insulated, when wearing my regular shoe size (7.5) they were way too tight on my toes and that was while trying them on with regular thin cotton socks. I knew I'd likely be wearing them with my Smartwool socks so I had to exchange them for a half size up which turned out to be perfect! They feel like a cozy warm hug around my feet all day.
