Hit the ground running.
The North Face Men's Ultra MT GTX Trail Running Shoe treads over rocky trails with grippy gusto and sure-footed stability. Its Gore-Tex waterproof/breathable membrane keeps your feet pleasantly dry through heavy downpours, muddy trail runs, and shallow stream crossings. Ripstop mesh along the forefoot prevents tearing and ripping from abrasive trail surfaces and pointy brush. Enhancing comfort further, the FlashDry collar lining accelerates the evaporation of built-up perspiration.
Cushioning your feet without sacrificing ground feel, the two-piece midsole softens the impact of treading over rough terrain, while the ESS forefoot plate protects your feet from stone bruises. Additionally, you'll enjoy the aggressive Vibram MegaGrip sole for tenacious, ultra-grippy traction.

- Q & A
Best Hiking/Trail Running Shoe EVER...
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Where do I start, and how do I make this reasonably short? To start, this shoe needs a very minimal break in period which is expected for most shoes in this category. After the break in, this shoe is so damn comfortable and grippy. The shoe's waterproofing is very good. The only problem I ran into with water is when the water was above my ankle. I think some neoprene socks would resolve the issue. They have a very comfortable ride which is perfect for pretty much all things trail, and the grip is fantastic. You will not have any problem in mud, dirt, rock, slickrock etc. I took these to Moab, Zions, up in the High Uintahs, and they performed perfect. Rarely slipped, very nice rock plate so you wont feel any abrasions on the trail. The only complaint I have is that the durability of the tread is not the best. I've probably ran/hiked 100 miles, and its starting to look pretty bad. Other than that, this shoes are perfect for hiking AND trailrunning. If you are thinking about it, do it. Totally worth the high price tag.
