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.

- 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.
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?
Sorry for my bad English :)
In addias I'm 44/5, in mammut 44, in salomon 43/5. in TNF I'm 44. Hope this help
You can join the backcountry page and choose any model North Face shoes. If you click on "sixe", there you can see the size chart for this brand. I hope this information serves you!
My feet run wide (D). Do these.
D width is standard for hiking and running shoes. They should be fine.
I use these for my everyday shoes and love them. They are sturdy without being clunky. I can hike in them and then wear them to work.
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.
why don't u have a size 12??????
why don't u have a size 12??????
Somebody bought it, I'd imagine. However, if you talk to a rep, using the "chat" button on the top right of your screen, they can look up the product and tell you when they'll have more in stock, or they might be able to special order it for you.
fantastic shoe that will last for a few seasons
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.
ordered size 12 shoes and recieved size 8. Pricing deceiving only applys to certain discontinued items. Will not use this site again.
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.
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 :)
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.
