Designed for overpronators, The North Face Ultra 105 GTX XCR Shoe is flexible and comfortable like a shoe but has durable, burly tread to devour trails like a boot. Its highly breathable upper helps vent excess foot sweat, and a waterproof breathable Gore-Tex membrane keeps your toes dry as you hike over wet, muddy terrain.

  • Gore-Tex XCR waterproof breathable membrane blocks water, mud, and snow from soaking through the upper
  • Breathable mesh panels help foot sweat evaporate so your toes stay dry
  • Durable UltraTac rubber provides excellent traction in both wet and dry conditions
  • Molded rubber toe cap protects your foot from sticks and rocks on trail
  • Heal Cradle technology stabilizes your foot and provides extra cushioning over rough trails
  • Compression-molded EVA midsole absorbs shocks and offers exceptional cushioning
  • TPU stability shank provides lateral (side to side) and torsional (twisting) stability for a firm, but pliable flex

Not as strong or well made as I expected

  • Fit:True to size

I wore this pair for a short time since I bought all for walking in town, no trails, no rough surfaces. I just noticed that the sole is pealing off. In years past I had the a similar shoe from the same manufacturer that lasted for years. This time around - not as rugged as they claim

very comfortable although a bit heavy

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I have used these shoes at work, climbing, trail running, road running and no problems at all. only downsize will be for fast runners... it is a bit chunky and heavier so this shoe is not for you. It has stability written all over it. would like to try out the 106 as well but dont see it on backcountry.

I love North face, but not these shoes.

    I love North Face products. I bought these shoes online since I am stationed overseas and because I loved the Ultra 104. From the moment I put these shoes on I was in pain. Something in the tongue of the shoe pressed down on the top of my foot causes server pain. I couldn't even lace them up. I would not buy these shoes again. I am only giving it 2 stars bc it may have been my shoes and not the whole line of 105s.

    Still Likes the Shoes

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Bought the shoes as a gift for my son after much shoe searching. He needed a waterproof shoe to walk to work and to work in all day, but he won't wear boots or high-tops. Day one he said he liked them and it felt like he was walking on stilts. Day two he said he still liked them and they felt like the shoe does all the work and feet are just there. We'll see what day three and up brings. If he is happy with the shoe, I am happy. I was very happy buying from backcountry and am impressed with the company.

    104, 105, 106s ?

      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.
      Is this the shoe you are looking for?
      Cause if so, I have it and I have to say that it is a pretty awesome shoe. Even though they are classified as running shoes, I use them as my everyday hiking shoe.
      After reading your review of the 104s, I have to say that the 106s are almost the exact opposite. I have found that they have a big toe-box, are pretty dang flexible, and in my opinion, are comfortable strait out of the box.
      I hope that this helps.

      Stable. Good Runner / Hiker. Not sure how waterproof.

        The shoe performs well for me. Good on trail running. When it got wet, it didn't keep my feet quite as dry as I would have liked. I live in Seattle, so we get a lot of rain. It's very stable and rugged. I wore my last pair in India a lot while traveling and they took a beating and still looked good / lasted a long time. They aren't great for climbing approaches as I find the friction isn't as good as some other climbing-specific approach shoes.

        Very good

          I had a couple of pairs of 103s, wore them till they broke down into pieces, loved them. I skipped the 104s - they looked weird.
          Now I've been using the 105s and they seem to be better than the 103s. Protect the foot well, are very comfortable and fit perfectly.
          The grip of the sole is unbelievable.

          The North Face tough

            I had bought a pair last year and ordered again another .. I have punished these shoes in all sorts of environments.. The only negative is the treads..but after many many miles had to super glue :) Very tough :)

            Nothing better

              I bought a pair of these 5 years ago when I forgot to pack my running shoes. I thought they "looked cool".I still wear them. They have gone from my everyday running shoes to my back ups to the back of the closet cause I had had them so long. I eventually tied knots in the laces to make them slip ons for working around the cottage. They still have their shape but stink like the dickens. I wore a pair of basics yesterday to mountain bike/trail run and they were worthless-these babies are the top of the line for me. I will be buying a new pair next week to cover me for the next 5 years and will bury the old ones not too near the septic tank, with reverence, of course.

              Hello! how to choose the right shoe size...

              Hello! how to choose the right shoe size The North Face? I measured the insole of my shoes ECCO. It is 26.5 centimeters. But this is no bend at the heel. Or do I need to measure the entire insole completely?
              Thank you.
              Sorry for my bad English :)
