alpineaddictwrote a review of The North Face Ultra 50 Trail Running Shoe - Women's on May 20, 2012
I have been wearing only North Face trail runners for several years for various activities, but mostly for dayhiking, backpacking and trail-running. These shoes fit the bill for all of these activities. They are very breathable, my feet don't sweat in these, are flexible but yet very supportive for my low-arched, low-volume foot that tends to over-pronate moderately. Toe box is not too large like the majority of other shoes out there (I prefer a smaller toe box since my foot is low-volume). I only dayhike and backpack in trail-runners versus mids or boots (blah!), and these are perfect for me. Plus, the hard toe cap really prevents toe-jamming and protects the toes on long treks. Highly recommended shoe!!
