Joe Gallagher wrote a review of The North Face Adrenaline Gore-Tex XCR Mid Hiking Shoe - Men's on September 12, 2005
I bought this shoe because of its excellent reputation. It has not disappointed. Beautiful fit, ready to hike right out of the box.
In East Tennessee we have many trails that are well worn and have exposed roots and rock strewn treads. The shoe hangs tough and handles it all without slipping or twisting.
This site's service along with no tax or shipping makes it a no-brainer buy.
