The North Face Shellista II Mid Boot - Women's

Winter warmth and style.

When the morning's so cold that you can hardly bear the thought of stepping outside, the Shellista II Mid Women's Boot from The North Face will make hitting the streets a little more manageable. It's loaded up with PrimaLoft Silver Eco insulation, so your toes will stay toasty on your commute to work or class, and the upper is made of waterproof nubuck leather that's smooth, supple, and totally impervious to snow, sleet, and puddles. A waterproof TPR shell wraps around your feet to keep 'em safe and dry, and the soft knit collar, colored eyelets, and choice of laces helps the Shellista pop a little more than your average winter boot. All the style in the world won't keep you upright, though, so The North Face finished the Shellista off with a TNF Winter Grip Rubber sole, which features temperature-sensitive IcePick lugs to keep you stable as a table on ice, snow, and dry ground.

Winter Proof Boots

When winter comes, these boots save the day. They're incredibly warm, lined with fleece. The soles and upper part of the boot is totally waterproof, not standing a chance to any amount of snow or slush. The soles themselves also have a lot of traction and grip to combat ice. They come up to just higher than mid-calf on me. I ended up going a half size up from what I normally wear because they were quite tight without thick socks on. I purchased in the Dachshund Brown and it's less red than the picture shows - really a very pretty warm brown that will pair well with any neutrals this winter.

Exactly what I expected!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 7

These boots are exactly what I was expecting! They fit like a glove and they are true to size. I usually range between a size 7 and 7.5 I ended up ordering a 7. The 7 fit just right. These boots are very stylish and I can't wait to wear them!

I bought these for my wife and she likes them so far. They are comfortable, warm, have good traction, are easy to put on and take off and work well for snow shoeing.

Wonderful purchase!

I have trip planned to Finland and realized I did not own a pair of boots that could withstand the harsh winter climate of the Lapland region. After much research, I found that these boots were consistently rated high on customer reviews. I purchased these boots and received them in less than 24 hours (just in time for a little NC snowstorm.) I was able to test out these boots in the 9-10 inches of snow that we received, and WOW was I pleased! Not only are these boots stylish, but they also keep your feet dry and warm! So far I am extremely pleased. Now for the ultimate test... Kittilä, Finland.

How did they hold up in Finland? I'm going in December for the northern lights and wanted something warm but more casual than other winter boots. I was thinking of these or the TNF Ballard Lace II boots. Thanks!

Wonderful boots..... and Happy feet!

Got theses boots yesterday....still haven't taken them off, because O . M. G. these are the B.....B.... E.....(best boots ever).

I hesitated to wear them to bed last night...but then I passed a mirror and saw how AWESOME I looked , I knew my NF Shesta 11 middys where not going anywhere without me!.... have tossed my UGG's....have thrown away my DANSKO,S .........even left my Jimmy Choo's at the door.......These are definitely "to die for"boots.

oh ...they feel like cloudy pillows on my feet and kick like downtown Chicago!

This company is great too...I am impressed :)

Wonderful  boots..... and Happy feet!

I am a size five in regular shoes, this is my first time ordering snow boots. Should I order a six instead?


Hey, Marla -

Thanks so much for reaching out with your question.

These do run "true to size," so I think a size 5 or maybe a size 5.5 would work. If you want to wear a thicker pair of socks, the 6 might fit, but you will likely be more comfortable in a boot that fits well without a large sock.

I have some ideas in mind, feel free to get in contact with me so we can discuss!

Love them!!

  • Fit: Runs small

Coming from a person who loves black (I got the brown pair) and stays cold, I love these boots. I got them in 2 days and you get what you see. The fur in the boot does not go down to the toe. The fur only goes down as deep as the knitted portion of the shoe, but the rest of the shoe is filled with very warm memory foam like cushion. These boots are a little stiff but I expect them to loosen up after breaking them in. They are great for small legs (can adjust if needed to fit leg via laces) and narrow feet. My suggestion is if you nave narrow feet like me get the bigger of the sizes you ware. I ware 7.5-8 I got a size 8 and I still have room to ware footed leggings with socks and I still have wiggle room. If your foot is not narrow I would order a half size up, for example if you ware an 8 get a 8.5. I'm no longer dreading the winter months and long walks through campus since I got these boots. I definitely think they're going to keep me both warm and dry this winter.

Can you tell me the color of the shoe you bought? Is it the dachshund or split rock brown?
