The North Face Women’s Nuptse Purna – (The Most Lightweight North Face Snow Boots)

Main Features

  • A fully waterproof BLC upper made from velvet suede exempts moisture penetration.
  • You have 200g of PrimaLoft insulation as an inner lining for optimal warmth.
  • A 10” shaft along with additional .75” of heel protect the mid-calves.
  • 100% water resistant top shaft cuffing locks the heat in the boot.
  • Feature a relatively wide toe-box for accommodating wide feet.

The North Face Women’s Nuptse Purna has a great outlook and is waterproof even in 4 feet of snow. Their Primaloft insulation system is hugely inefficient.

Following only half an hour of exposure in the snow led to my feet going numb. I would not recommend these in below zero temperatures.

Things I Liked

  • Extremely lightweight, weighing only 3 pounds.
  • They look very stylish and can wear just about anywhere.
  • Have excellent traction; therefore, do not slip in mud or icy terrains.

Things I Disliked

  • You need to order a half size larger needs for giving space to wear woolen socks.
  • Lack of sufficient insulation to keep feet warm in -1C
  • Extra woolen socks, and foot warmers need to be placed to maintain the foot somewhat warm.

The North Face Alpenglow IV Boot – (The Most Effective Bungee Collar Closure)

Main Features

  • A thermal felt liner featuring a removable option helps eradicate odor/moisture buildup.
  • A pull-up bungee lace closure keeps the foot protected from entrance of snow/slush.
  • TNF winter-grip deep traction synthetic rubber outsole provides constant stability on all terrains.
  • Seam-sealed nylon shaft provides full water-resistance even in constant snow/slush/water exposure.
  • Flexible midsole makes walking for more prolonged periods easier.

I would highly recommend the North Face Alpenglow IV Boot, they provide excellent grip on all terrains including, slippery wet mountains and help keep the foot heavily insulated via a thermal-felt liner.

Even if moisture builds up over the last usage, the liner can be removed and kept outside until dry.

Things I Liked

  • Bungee collar above the bungee lace closure shuts around the leg giving excellent fitting and protection from cold breeze.
  • The boots only weight 1.5 pounds, making them very easy to run/walk or even jog in.
  • Deep treads along with 100% water resistant outer lining make them ideal for prolonged exposure to snow/water.
  • Provide sufficient insulation in -25F.

Things I Disliked

  • Their sizing is incredibly inaccurate, 2.5 sizes above the actual foot frame need to order for having enough room to wear woolen socks.

The North Face Women’s Shellista II Mid Boot – (The Best Traction Among North Face Women’s Snow Boots)

Main Features

  • A streamline shaped calf gives a classic look.
  • 10.5” of the shaft along with an additional .5 inch heel provide waterproof protection till mid-calf.
  • A lace-up shell helps adjust the fitting to the leg.
  • The boot features a TNF winter grip synthetic rubber outsole for maximized grip on slippery terrain.
  • The footpad is contoured to mimic the shape of human feet beds for optimal comfort.

The North Face Women’s Shellista II Mid Boot is among my favorite even though with the extensively long shaft, they can be challenging to wear and take off but they provide exceptional traction even on icy sidewalks.

The insulation is fantastic via Icepick lugs which are temperature sensitive; I do not feel the need to be wearing woolen socks even when I am out in deep snow over prolonged periods.

Things I Liked

  • Keep the legs warm till the mid-calves via a long shaft.
  • They are true to their size, so no hassle of ordering a size bigger or smaller.
  • Midfoot outsole flexibility provides utmost comfort even after prolonged walking periods.

Things I Disliked

  • The boot’s ankle width is a little narrow.
  • You can have a minor discomfort with more full ankles.
