The North Face Bridgeton Lace ReviewMay 24, 2016
- Comfortable and warm
- Stylish combat-boot style
- No arch support
- Gaping shaft near the inner ankle
- Stiff, uncomfortable footbed
The North Face Bridgeton Lace boots mix cute, stylish boots with the warmth that is needed for the winter season. The boots are waterproof and insulated, and are easy to get on and off with a full inner zipper. Compared to other boots, the quality ranked high with little to no markings on the boots after initial wear and offered adequate warmth and traction.
The North Face boots are a combat-style boot that comes in three neutral colors perfect for pairing with any outfit. The suede upper and buckle details add unique accents.
The North Face boots are comfortable for everyday wear, but not ideal if you are standing for long periods of time. The boots fit snug around the foot and toe, but were tight near the mid-calf when zipped up. The shaft was gapping and slightly loose around the inner ankle and sometimes bent to dig into the ankle.
On icy surfaces, the Bridgeton Lace boots faired well with TNF Winter Grip rubber outsole with Icepick temperature-sensitive lugs. Compared to other boots tested, these boots had average traction.
With 200 grams of PrimaLoft insulation, the boots kept feet warm and dry on days with below freezing temperatures while moving and standing still.
The North Face boots had no markings at all on the suede after multiple wears. Construction appeared durable and long-lasting with a seam-sealed upper.
