Hit the trail in The North Face Men's Ultra Fastpack II GTX Shoe and have time to enjoy a nice little lunch at the peak while you wait for everyone else in your group to reach the top. Built for fast pursuits, it features a welded mesh upper with embedded cables for serious support without the extra weight, as well as a Gore-Tex membrane for weather protection that won't suffocate your foot.
Cables along the quarter panel provide streamlined midfoot support. Waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex protects against streams, storms, and swamps without turning the inside of the shoe into a sweatbox, and a FlashDry collar lining facilitates rapid drying. The Cradle Guide dual-density midsole provides the right combination of cushioning and support, and Ultra Protect Cradle technology offers proper heel support. TNF rounded this boot out with a Vibram XS Trek outsole for traction and durability that won't slow you down.

- Q & A
For Me - The Perfect Fit
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 12.5
Have been wearing a 13 for a bit and these just happen to fit like a glove. Rugged looking shoe with a rugged sole. Have put them away for when the old ones die.
A fine shoe, but large
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
I bought this shoe for light hiking and backpacking but found them to be about 1 size too big. so they ended up being use to mow the lawn and around the house. They are still comfortable but slide around a lot as you would expect shoes that are too large.
Awesome shoe that runs super large
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 10
I really like these shoes, they are about as light as hiking shoes can be and very breathable especially for being waterproof. The vibram sole is even stickier than I thought it would be, pretty similar to the rubber on my boulder x's, giving excellent traction. The lace system is nice too, giving good tightness throughout the shoe. I use these for work, and they give me the perfect support and comfort without making my foot sweat. My only gripe is how large these run.
I wear a 45 (11.5) in the boulder x's and an 11 in my salomon xa comps. I ordered an 11 on these and found that it was actually a full size too big. I returned them for a 10 which fits perfectly now that I've broken them in a little. I don't wear a 10 in literally any other shoe so that's definitely something to note.
