Question by fedup on 1/30/2014 - 5:54 pm
A:
"Yes, this boot does run true to size. However, if you plan on wearing thicker socks with these I would recommend a half size up from your usual size. "
Answer by Sarah (Peter Glenn Staff) on 1/31/2014 - 9:10 am
A:
"These boots run small due to the insulation. Order at least one full size larger."

These boots are like walking around in tight sleeping bags for your feet. They're super warm. It's been in the single digits in NYC and I've been on ice lakes to photograph ice racing upstate and my feet have been the warmest part of my body. They seem to have pretty good grip, even on the iced over lake. They're super easy on and off. You can tie them pretty loose and slide them on and off and they're still very warm. The pull tab is functional, not just for show. They have a nice ledge on the heel that allows you to kick them off. They look very durable, but I've only had them for about 2-3 weeks so I can't say how they will hold over the long haul.

My biggest caveat for them is they don't fit over jeans well that aren't loose fitted or boot cut. I have to stretch my jeans over them, which looks kind of funny, but it works. I wish the upper was just a tiny bit thinner. I'm still on the edge about whether on not to keep them for this fact alone. I want to be able to wear these on really cold days in the city, but bulkiness of them might lead me to returning them for a smaller boot, as much as i love them. I've attached a picture. have to tie the boots a little tighter to get the jean to fit over easy.

Sizing is a little funky. I'm usually an 11.5. I bought these in a 12, but probably could have gone to a 12.5. They're a little tight, but I'm expecting them to pack out enough to be ok. If you want perfect fit off the bat, go a full size up, not a half.

I should add that I have bad circulation in my feet from previous injuries, which leads my feet to being cold often. With these, I don't have that problem at all. My feet are literally toasty with them on. I'm almost sad that I may have to return them for the mere fact of their bulk.

Got the boots as a gift 3 years ago and only worn about a dozen times since in a mild winter condition in BC. Wore it outside walking for about half an hour until one of the boots upper TPR shell / rubber forefoot cracked all around and a piece broke off .. Disintegrated! TNF warranty no help! They said due to age of boots, it's natural that rubber will degrade...like a tire of a truck to be specific! So if you accept this explanation...enjoy the boots with limited lifespan! I know I won't. Very disappointed - lost faith in TNF!

      Comments about The North Face Chilkat II Luxe Boot Men's, Coffee Brown/Shroom Brown, 10:

      Just wanted to say that i usually wear a size 12 or 12.5. I ordered these boots in size 13, returned and exchanged them for size 14, which are also too small; due to all the padding and insulation inside, i suppose. Hoped that when they would break in they would become more roomy. This is year two and my toes are still smushed, especially when wearing thick socks. I like them otherwise.

                  The sizing is a bit tricky. Before trying the boots on at the store I read the reviews and knew that I needed a bigger size. I normally wear size 10, so I tried a 10.5 and an 11, and I bought the size 10.5 even though they felt a bit tight at the toe - I figured it was because I had very thick woolen socks on and that with thin docks the fit would be ok - a mistake. Trying to break them in at home with a thinner sock didn't work out, still there was not enough space for the toes to the point of discomfort - even though the upper part was fine. I went to the store and exchanged those for size 11. Now the length and width at the toe and foot is perfect, but the upper part is somewhat loose. It looks like the upper and the lower parts of the boot don't match quite well. However, I don't see that as a big issue since that can be corrected with an extra insole, besides, I needed the boots for the trip to the mountains and I decided to keep them.
                  Now about the performance of the boots: I wore them with gaiters during the day trip to the slopes of mount Elbrus in December (an ascend/descend from 2000 to 3000 m above sea level and back in all kinds of snow) and they performed exceptionally well: warm, waterproof, and what I liked the most was being able to use them for making steps in hard firn with the toe parts like you would do with mountaineering boots. Also, the tracktion is very stable. After the hike I had them on for a 3 hour drive back home and my feet were absolutely dry and comfortable - a great result after hiking in snow for the day. So if you don't mind fiddling with the boots a bit in order to make them fit - I would totally recommend those.

                  I have the chilkat nylons in which I wear an 11 (normal size in other footwear as well). However, I decided to take the warnings on this boot and ordered a 12. l could have but alas the deal was for the 12s. The reason the boot runs small is due to the insulation (200g worth), while it does keep your feet nice and toasty it does make a drastically tighter fit. Also these boots are for winter, preferably snow conditions only. That's how much insulation and ruggedness it has.

                      I think the shoes are functionally great, stylistically better than most similar type of boots, but run a little small because of all the insulation and are a little heavy. I'm happy with the trade off of thick materials for durability, comfort, and warmth though.

                            Great for being outside for long durations. Insulation in the boots tend to make this boot feel smaller. After trying these on in the store I decided to size up to an 11.5 where I would typically wear a 10.5. These are nice and light weight.

                                Disappointed that they fit so tight. Also upset that I get charged shipping to send back. I know they need to make their margins but it makes it maddening to order online, but I can't buy in store because there are none near me.

                                    i wanted this pair of boots for over 2 years. i had the nubuck version prior. when i found the leather pair i was psyched.. but was let down because the leather boots runs small at least one size...if NF will accept the boots back i would take another pair in a larger size.......

                                    They are good quality and warm but they run small. I got my husband one size bigger and they are too tight yet, need to get another pair

                                    The Best winter boot purchase literally I ever made. When in search of a winter boot that can be utilized in sub degree temperatures and is waterproof the Chilkat ll Luxe is hands down the perfect choice. After the purchase of one pair I was certain the Chilkat II Luxe were boots I definitely would purchase these boots again.

                                    The Chilkat II is an amazingly warm and comfortable snow boot. It provides you with excellent support paired with warmth in extremely cold conditions. The best part is that there is no break in period, they were comfortable for a full work day on the first attempt. Amazing!! Thanks North Face! Happy trails with my happy feet!!
