Great winter sneaker

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I wear these around town in the winter and spring when there is snow or slush on the ground. Keeps my feet dry and warm, they look nice enough I can wear them with slacks and a dress shirt. I've had them for a couple of months and the quality seems high to me unlike some of the other reviewers...Love 'em.

Great shoes

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've been wearing these shoes for a couple of months now. They do get a little smelly after wearing them like I do, but no worries, they make aerosol sprays to fix that. They are very comfy and get a lot of compliments around the town. I own the hi-top boot version too for when tracking through snow in parking lots at the slopes. I'd totally say to buy these half a size up and you'll love them too! Buy them soon though, because it may be too warm in the Spring or Summer to wear.


  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I love the summer sneakers, but these, although a similar look, are a far poorer quality. Three weeks into wearing them, the heel separated. I had only walked around in them. Poor materials and shoddy fabrication.


    So I have not been the biggest The North Face fan ever since they cheapened their brand name by moving their manufacturing from Berkley all the way to China. The mass production in the late 90's led to a disintegration in quality as the forced quantity exploded. Though they do have a few different lines with different quality spectrums, it just does not feel the same. I digress... I saw these at a shop and tried them on for kicks because they had that nice classic design. When I slipped them on I was amazed at the level of comfort and padding on the inside. Really felt like putting a nicely padded patagonia hiking boot on (but low top of course). I decided to take them home and try them out, just for a casual shoe, I really don't think they would hold up on a trail for sure. So far so good. The hydro-seal waterproofing is literally waterproof, I have worn them in some pretty good rain storms and walking in puddles the outside soaks a bit of water up but it does not permeate the shell. The body is soft and with a little wear develops a nice flexion. The shoe does not breathe all that well or at all, but it does keep your feet warm on the go. Last but not least, I have had these about a month now, the stitching is holding up and the quality seems to be pretty decent, which is a surprise to me, but maybe quality is catching up to quantity. I usually wear a 10.5 and these are true to size as I am in a 10.5 in these as well. I would definitely try these out if your looking for a nice cas shoe for around town, but again to me in my professional opinion, these just won't work on an actual trail for long.
