Shellista II Mid Boot

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.

Better than expected

    After reading reviews I was apprehensive on whether or not these would be a good fit for me and I am so soo glad I purchased them! I love everything about them, they are so incredibly comfortable and they have good support. Also they are so warm my feet stay nice and toasty, sometimes too warm but can’t complain about that! My normal size is 8.5 and based on reviews I wasn’t sure what to go with but I ordered an 8.5 and I’m so glad I did they fit perfect. I’m just so happy with this purchase they will be one of the only good things that come from living in the long MN winters!

    Stylish and warm

      Warm and stylish boot. Runs a bit small, I probably won’t be able to wear a thick sock.

      They look better than what I expected but for me the ran small and are a bit too heavy. I don't think I'll be able to wear them with socks. Besides that they are protective and warm.

      Great Fit!

        Got these for my mom and she has loved having and using them. By far the best pair she has owned in years!

        So comfortable and warm!

        I ordered a 9.5 (my usual size) and it fit perfectly, even with wool socks! They have cushion on the ankle areas and are so cozy to romp around in. Winters can be very wet and sometimes icy in the Willamette Valley and these are the perfect boots for my Oregon roots. I love them! Plus they are so freakin stylish and cute!! I definitely recommend these boots, despite what all the bad reviews say. It’s not for everyone but I will tell ya I am not disappointed!

        So comfortable and warm!

        Warm, comfy, waterproof

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Owned these boots for a month or so now and they're very nice. Stylish as well as functional. They're very warm and are waterproof. The grip is pretty good on ice, especially with careful footing. Easy to get off and on without untying the laces.
        I ordered a 9.5, usually I'm a 9 or an occasional 8.5. I think a 9 would have been perfect, even with thick socks. But the extra room isn't bothersome.

        Overall, great boots. I recommend these for anyone looking for a multi purpose boot - whether it be light outdoor work, hiking, or a social event.

            Are This boots are water proof? I work in a plant and at the end of the day we clean our boots with hot water

            Cute and sturdy, but runs small

            • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

            I normally wear a 7 or 7.5, and only available size was 7, so I took my chances and it didn't work out. Even when wearing a thin sock, I could barely get my foot inside the boot. Otherwise, these were very nice. I liked the ankle support and height of the boot (just shy of mid-calf).

            Cute and Functional!

              I love these warm and fashionable winter boots! They are the best to slip on on deep snow days, or when its chilly. And they are super cute so you don't sacrifice function for style!

                I gifted this for my sister's birthday. She's been getting a ton of compliments from it. She says it fits her well and is excited to have some boots this winter when we receive snow.

                Winter Proof Boots

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

                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!
