Heavy-load support, huge comfort, and reliability make this a boot that other boots look up to.

Here it is: The North Face Women's Verbera Backpacker GTX Boot is the strong back of the Verbera technical hiking boots line. Load a heavy, multi-day pack, slide your foot inside this boot, and the Italian-leather craftsmanship, Gore-Tex waterproofing, and supportive design will take care of the rest.
  • Gore-Tex waterproof breathable membrane protects your feet from moisture outside (foul, wet weather) and allows sweaty moisture inside your boots to escape to the outside
  • Smartlite mudguard keeps messy, sopping mud from creeping into your footwear while you navigate particularly nasty sections of trail
  • Boot last has a medium volume shape, it's narrower in the heel and achilles for control, and it features a roomier forefoot and tapered toebox to accommodate thicker hiking socks and swollen toes
  • Ventilation from ballistic textile helps keep your feet cool, and the tough synthetic and leather shrug off sharp rocks and trail hazards
  • Northotic Pro+ footbed uses EVA for durability, a cradle-shaped heel for control plus gel for cushioning in the same area, and an OrthoLite forefoot for padding
  • Cradle heel shape and SR2 insole board provide support for carrying heavy loads but still allow for enough response so you can feel the trail below your feet
  • Vibram outsole has durable, reliable build and offers supreme traction on everything from wet, loamy trails to loose, rocky desert terrain
  • Stainless steel eyelets and locking instep eyelets keep your laces locked in place

Had to return them.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

This is a high quality well made boot, but unbelievably narrow. These are more than an inch less wide than my old set of boots. They call this narrow width "Cradle Technology," but I call it "Crushing Agony." I had to return them and order another brand that has sizing geared more towards the general population.

Loved, but had to return :(

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

I really saw a ton of potential in these boots (based on my experience backpacking in other boots), but unfortunately, I couldn't really test them out because they are definitely made for a NARROW foot, or someone who doesn't need much room in the toe-box. I wore them around my house for about an hour and it caused strain on my foot around the toe joints. The lacing mechanism and the height and ankle cushion/support was pretty top-notch and seemed to be made of quality, durable materials. If you've ever had to buy a wide shoe, however, this boot is not for you, which is very unfortunate.

Nice hiking boot!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes run narrow. I wear 7 1/2 and thought they were too small because of the narrowness. When I got the 8, they were just too long but still very narrow. Both times the right foot was more snug. Finally, I exchanged back for the 7 1/2 and they were much better. The right foot was still slightly more snug and I never have a problem with my right foot and I've never had wide feet being 5'4, 123 lbs and 49 years old. But these last ones are better and I realize they are narrow because they are meant to cradle your feet while hiking. They have nice pressure point pads, you can see the quality in the boots from inside to out and I broke them in for a couple weeks in the evenings around the house getting my feet used to them. I have to wear thin socks and I really like them. I wore them out last Saturday all day and my feet felt great. Although they are true to size on length they definitely are extra narrow and cradling. I'm getting used to them and glad I have them for hiking. I also had to untie all the way & retie them because all 3 pairs seemed tied very snugly at first and that helped loosen them up around the toe area where the problem is. The other reviewer is a male and these boots aren't quite high enough to hit my shins, so he may have reviewed the wrong boot. These are women's verberra and are comfortable around the ankle and just above for good ankle support, which I need.

Didn't like the feel

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I'm super picky about my footwear and have always had a hard time getting used to backpacking boots and the top of the boot rubbing against my shins. I thought these were uncomfortable. I liked the Lightpacker version better.
