Summary

My boots also fell apart in the same place.

Pros

  • Great traction and warm

Cons

  • They fell apart. Hardly worn, kept in closet next to my L.L. Bean boots.

I've had these boots for a few years. Hardly wear them. Have always worn L.L. Bean boots, but a few years ago I ran into these and thought I'd try them. Didn't have the need to use them a lot until this winter.

Got them out of my closet sitting next to my other boots. Second day wearing them they fell apart where the leather meets the rubber. Never had a pair of boots do this. I've read other complaints about this and North Face says it's a storage issue and won't do anything after a year. Bad business! My L.L. Bean boots I've had for 10 years and they are still perfect.

Nice job, North Face. You just gave L.L. Bean more of your customers!!!! You are misleading consumers with products that don't last. I know there are people who haven't had any issues with these boots, so you should be taking care of your customers that do.

Clearly there is a defect in the material or just bad quality. Just not the way to deal with defected products with consumers. PERIOD.

Summary

Complete Rubbish, so disappointed with my North Face Chilkats. My boots were stored with the rest of my gear. Took them out for the first time and the boots split so badly two hours into the walk that I was not sure if they were going to stay on my feet. The rubber section just fall apart. Never seen anything like it. Ripped off.

Pros

  • Look great

Cons

  • Taiwan RUBBISH

Save your money and don't purchase any of the crap.

Summary

Wore them twice and the side split from the sole.

Pros

  • none

Cons

  • cheaply made and garbage

I bought these to wear when hunting in Michigan.

They came out of the closet twice. Once to wear in the house and once to go to a friend's.

She noticed that the side had split open at the sole from toe to heel.

My wife bought a pair for herself. She liked them so bought a pair for me. I liked them, so we bought a pair for her parents in Poland. I'm going to keep this short... quite simply the most comfortable, warm, and waterproof boots I have ever purchased!
