The North Face Janey II Winter Boots - Women'sis rated4.1818out of5by11.
Rated4out of5bymuffin81fromWaterproof :)The main reason I bought this pair of Janey is that I needed someting waterproof for a last minute fishing trip in Homer, Alaska. I forgot to bring my waterproof shoes. It is a very cute style and I love the pink stitching. I also like north face quality. I think I bought a size too small this time. I have purachased another type of Janey shoes from north face but it doesn't have the leather strap that goes across the foot. So this style I found to be a little too tight for me. I also found that tieing the lace in the back was a little more difficult than my other pair of Janeys from NF. Overall, it did the job that I bought it for :) Kept my feet dry and they were easy to clean after my fishing trip. I suggest going a size bigger and make sure the leather strap design is not tight if you have wide feet.

Rated5out of5bySierra KimfromStylish winter bootI had been looking for a stylish pair of winter boots with REAL traction that actually fits my fat calvs...actually kinda hard to find, believe it or not, Until I happened upon these sweet soles while searching for a completely unrelated item at REI.
Not only do they look fabulous, but they are warm. OH SO WARM (my toes are always cold) and very comfy too. My feet don't feel like they are sweating but are nice and toasty. I happened upon a patch of ice and tip toed my way across at first but these things actually have pretty good traction...started walking a little more confidence across the ice and I didn't slip once! So, stylish (for outside or inside use) warm, comfy and I won't fall on my bum.
I give them two enthusiastic thumbs up. I'm SOOOOOOOOOO set for the next couple of winters. I just hope they hold up under a lot of use...we shall see!

Rated5out of5byCamping at NightfromWonderful boots!I bought these because they were on sale and looked like a good mix of style and function. Little did i know they would become my go-to boots for cold weather camping! I use them primarily in cold weather, no snow and not freezing temperatures. They're a little dirtier now, but they have held up beautifully. 18 months and there's still no noticeable wear on them. The temperature-sensitive tread hasn't worn down either, like I read it would if the boots weren't exposed to freezing temperatures. My only real complaint is that I have to wear them with socks; the faux-fir lining makes the boot too warm without them.

Rated5out of5byMac and Vic in SistersfromBest Winter Boots Ever!I (Victoria)wear a size 11 womens boot and can't always find footwear that fits well and perfroms as advertised. These boots are just about the best fitting and performing boots I've ever owned.

Rated1out of5byLabsRulefromNot for lots of snowThe lace up back is not just a decorative detail -- it is open, like the shoelaces on your running shoes. There is a small "tongue" under the laces and it is not sewn to or sealed to the boot. This means if you step into a snowdrift, like when sledding with the kids, you will get snow into your boot and cold, wet feet. Poorly designed for snow activities. I returned the boots after ordering them online.

Rated5out of5byAshley the camo girlfromPerfect for everyone!!These boots are perfect. They adjust in the back so that you can make them fit you. They are perfect for ladies with athletic calves because they do lace up the back! Perfect for walking around the cold, icy, snowy campus at MSU!

Rated5out of5byRabbyzzufromPerfect winter bootI am not trying to get into a debate about whether or not these boots are made for the, shall we say, voluptuously-calved ladies. But I do, and I really DO, have large calves; I think they measure about 17-18 inches at the widest part. "Athletic" is the nicest way to describe them, but if they are not athletic, they're just, well, big. I've ALWAYS had to get the wide-calf version of dress boots, and even those sometimes don't fit me. I've been on the look-out for comfy boots that can be dressed up or dressed down for WAY TOO LONG, and I have finally found some that fit over my legs in skinny jeans. The back tongue could be wider, I guess that's the one drawback of this boot, because if my calves were even bigger than they are, some tights/jeans might peek through.
In addition to their girth, they're just plain awesome. Super comfy, warm, and so far waterproof in the snow. I did treat them with a spray-on waterproofing treatment because I just wanted to be safe. To be fair, these probably aren't the boots you want to go snowshoeing in, or for a long hike in the rain, but for in-town walks in rain or snow, they're great.
And for those who do not have the wide calf conundrum, I still think you'd love these boots. The lacing in the back makes them very flexible so you can tighten them quite a bit. Overall a great boot.

Rated5out of5byAlix in HBfromLove, love love these boots!These boots are great! They look good with jeans, tights, dresses. Super comfortable, very warm, but not bulky. I have wide feet and they fit perfectly. Yes, they are a tiny bit harder to put on with the zipper on the side, but once I have them laced where they fit my calf, I just zip and unzip the side and slide my foot in and out. Is it possible that the larger calf reviewer just needed a larger size? They are actually somewhat stretchy. I wear them all the time in cold weather and after skiing in the snow and they keep my feet really warm.
