The North FaceChilkat II Boot - Boys'

Because snow is really, really fun.

The North Face understands that young boys should, under no circumstances, be confined inside all winter. And so it designed the sturdy Boys' Chillkats Boot--boys can wear it to school and go nuts on the playground, or wear it on a winter snowshoe romp with the family.

Good Boot, Runs Small

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

This is the second pair that we have purchased for my son. The last pair held up for two seasons until he outgrew them. I think they run a bit small but we usually try to go a size up to get a little more time out of them. Currently, he is a size 4 and we ordered a size 5 which fit perfectly for this year. They seem comfortable and warm and they get almost every day use.

They don't fit

    I bought a kids size 10 for my 3 year old and he can't get his feet in them. You can actually see in the product image that from the ankle to the top, the boots are much narrower than the lower. These boots are also extremely heavy for being a kids shoe.

    Nice boots

    This is my son's second pair. He has out grown of the older boots. We like the style and it did its job.

    Perfect winter boot!

    Picked up these sweet boots for the little dude and he loves them! Keeps his toes all warm and support his feet. I went with his normal size and they fit perfect!

    My son's feet is around 23 cm long.. I'm wondering if i should order a size 7 boys or men for him.

    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".

    I have been wearing a mens size 7 for years and loved them. My foot happens to be a 6, but that was not avaliable at the time.I am in my 40 and use my boots for work and play. I replaced with a boys 6. Does not even come close to the adult construction. The rubber over the toe area is soft and no support, the soles are not the grip style of the adults so they slip easier and the material around your foot is not as firm so my feet do not stay as warm. If you are close to an adult size buy it, it is for supperior to the kids version. I was very dissapointed.

    OK - I'm a little stressed! My son is 10 years old and currently wears a size 7 shoe. I've been searching on-line for the "right boot" and am now wondering if I should order a Men's boot size 7.5 or 8 OR order Size 7 in a Boys boot. - Signed a Mom who has a child with no snow boots and it's supposed to snow in 2 days! UGH! Plz help!

    Hey Stacee,

    A size 7 shoe (boys) is approximately equivalent to 9.75." Since he's still young and growing, I would recommend going with a size 8 in men's boot if you want the boots to have room for growth. Another way to go is ordering size 7.5 AND 8 and return the size that doesn't fit as well. If you chat/call in and have one of our gearheads set an order up for you, they will be happy to offer you a FREE return shipping label to send back the pair that doesnt work out.

    Great Boots!

    My son wore these all winter and we LOVED them. Super warm for playing outside in the snow all day or snowshoeing through the mountains. Comfortable enough to wear to school on cold blustery days. Great quality and we will pass these down for years!

    Got these for my girl. She has such small feet (size 5 womens) that these in a size 3 worked perfect. She loves them

    Pretty good, with a flaw

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Bought for my 7 year old son. 48" tall, he is in size 2.0 boots/shoes. Comfortable, dry, everything good there. Only flaw is that if he does not wear tall enough socks, the boot lip rubs his legs RAW. One time coming home from school one leg was near bleeding. Like a rug burn on steroids. If he wears long enough socks, not an issue.

    North face boots

      My 6 years old love this boots so much it keeps his feet warm and toasty he used this when we went to stratton vermont it is 18 degrees at that time and he did not complain that his feet is cold.

        Great Winter Boot

          Great boot but runs small compared to my boys normal shoe size. Take a suggestion and look at ordering up a size.

          Great water proof boot

            We bought these for my son who has a rare allergy to cold water and weather. His feet (as well as the rest of him) ABSOLUTELY have to be dry and warm or he could go into anaphylactic shock. These were added to his collection of warm and waterproof outerware and they have been AWESOME!! no worries at all when he wears them.

            I ordered the Bugaboot in a size 3 and it was small. Does this boot run similar in size? Should I buy a size up?

            Best Answer

            I have found TNF to run on the big side, this boot included. If the 3 was just a little small you'll probably be just right with a 3 in this boot.
