bbhackwrote a review of The North Face Ultra 105 GTX XCR Shoe - Men's on January 10, 2012
I ordered this shoe as I was told it was a replacement for 104 GTXs. This information was incorrect - the 106 GTX was the shoe I was after. The 105s are a very different shoe, apparently on a different last: too narrow in the forefoot, too stiff (flexibility) and too firm (cushioning) for my tastes. North Face should really change the names of these shoes to reflect that, other that the XCR, they aren't really related.
