The North Face Back-To-Berkeley Boot - Men's
It would be nice to spend the winter in a sunny, temperate clime (with frequent trips to snowy peaks thrown in), but since most us us aren't that lucky, The North Face created the Men's Back-to-Berkley Boot. And while it may sport a retro West-Coast-y vibe, this is one boot that's ready for old-school, nasty northern winters. Between the PU coating on the ballistic mesh upper, the waterproofing on the suede mudguard, and the Hydroseal waterproof membrane, your feet won't be getting wet this winter. Thanks to 100-gram PrimaLoft Eco insulation, they'll be warm, too.

Lightweight boots with excellent traction in the snow. I've tested them on the Glacier at Mt Hood for 2 days in 70 degree weather and they held up quite well. THey were a bit wet after 5 or 6 hrs. I would call them water resistant rather than water proof. They are a great fit for me and I believe they should work out really well in the snow especially in colder temps.
Leaky but light.

Not very waterproof at all, two weeks in and my feet had damp patches all over.
Rubber came away from front and the inner lining rubbed off my ankle.
Very light, but not as advertised, I wouldn't buy these again.

Loved them at first but...

I have returned them for new pairs twice now and they both developed leaks. The first pair even had a bad seem where my big toe went in one of the boots and it was too painful to even wear. But they look cool.

So far they are really comfortable and light weight. I have only worn them in the streets, not out hiking or in the woods yet but I plan on doing so. Very well made and a nice look as well.
I love this item so much

In brief: Cozy and cool for light, casual use. Expect cold wet feet for anything remotely beyond that.
I got these boots to wear around town, walking to/from work and short hikes in the snow, rain and cold. For those purposes, they are fine and I do love the look. But calling these boots waterproof is absurd. The exposed foam soles and ankles soak up moisture and funnel it into the boot when flexed. On a recent hike in very light rain the boots soaked through in about an hour to the point that I had to wring out my socks and the insoles. The boots then completely soaked a change of dry socks in a matter of steps. With each step the foam squished water into the boot. I resigned myself to water-logged feet for the rest of my 2-day trip and wishing I'd worn my goretex trail runners instead.

These are obviously a lightweight, city-walk, "boot-version" of a walkabout shoe. I'll definitely buy'em,... but according to reviews, they will not endure water, abuse, and hard wear. They're very cool looking which attracted me, and I expect them to deliver long hours of comfortable, casual wear, without problems, for a few years: naturally, with compliments! For $90 bucks (which is nothing nowadays) what do you guys expect?: these are $90 of cool.

I am impressed with these boots. They are a perfect medium between shoes and boots - light, but warm. I live on the border of North Dakota and Manitoba and we have some serious winters. These boots have performed great in the 6-10 inches of snow for several hours walking the dogs. The top two sets of eyelets are shredding the laces which is disappointing. However, they did come with an extra set in another color. I prefer the red laces and contacted North Face and they sent me extra laces for free! Overall I am impressed with these boots.
