Great flexible waterproof shoes

    This is my second pair of these shoes. For years I was using the Salomon line (original Vortex, GCS XCR, XA-Comp 1 2 and 3).



    However, as time went on, the Salomons evolved in a direction which I didn't like: their shoes were getting stiffer - both the contour/ toe area, and same thing for the sole. The latter was also very slippery on wet rocks.



    These North Face shoes have all the good things of the Salomon (optimized for trail running), plus:

    - They are more flexible

    - They have a better grip

    - They are very comfortable and have good arch support, so I do not need to add an arch support sole inside like I had to for the Salomons.



    If you're looking for an efficient shock-amortizing, arch-supporting, waterproof trail running shoes, then this is definitely a shoe worth trying.

    Solid shoe

      Over the course of 1yr I've probably logged roughly 1,000 miles on these or 4 miles per day (average) hiking (not running). They have stood up extremely well and have lasted a lot longer than competitor shoes. I am very hard on my footwear. What lead to their demise, after 1yr of use, is I snagged the top of the toe box on a branch and it sliced the mesh open. Now there's a hefty hole. The GTX XCR is excellent. I'm in MA and they've been through a wet & muddy spring, hot summer, rainy hikes, dewy meadows and a snowy winter and I have no complaints regarding breath-ability and water proofing. Traction & stability is excellent on all types of terrain. 1,000 miles of use and the soles are finally worn down, yet surprisingly grippy. Toe box has wiggle room, the heel is mediocre for my narrow heel (I have to tighten them up just right or else I get minimal slippage, no blisters, but enough for the heel liner to wear down at the point of friction). Now the downside: the shoe laces are an absolute pain to deal with. CONSTANTLY coming untied. It's not a very cushioned shoe. I get knee pain if the shoe isn't cushioned enough and ever so often my knees act up with these shoes.

      Great light trail shoe

        My first experience with North Face footwear & I'm a convert! These are great shoes for someone with wide feet like me. The traction, stability & cushioning is excellent. I wouldn't go bounding down really technical terrain in these but for moderate trail running (& getting to the trail & back) these are one of the best shoes I've run in. I now have 3 pair (2 regular & 1 GTX)

        They do have a wide forefoot though & a lot of stability in the shoe, so if you are an efficient/neutral runner or have a narrower foot, maybe look to Salomon or La Sportiva.

        So far, so good

          I've ran in these twice so far and I really love the ride--much better than Salomon XA Pro 3d Ultras. The fit is perfect for my foot--I wear a 9.5 and they are true to size. They are more cushioned than the Asics GT-2140s I replaced them with. They are definitely cushioned enough for the street or the trail. The only reason I haven't given them a 5 is I'd like to see how well they hold up. As of now, I like the styling of these and functionality. Hopefully they'll hold up as well as they perform out of the box.
