bonedaddy wrote a review of The North Face Radial Trail Running Shoe - Men's on October 2, 2006
After good experiences with The North Face Vapor Light and Ultra 102 this shoe did not cut it. Mesh at the corner of the toe box developed a hole in about 100 miles. In less than 200 I lost a tread/lug off the sole on both shoes down the center of the forefoot. Not even the same tread/lug location on each shoe. The Radial is not the high-end shoe, but I notice the more expensive shoes have the same outsole. Fit and performance were otherwise OK. Too bad.
