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
  • Item #TNF7428

did their job.

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

I bought these for my daughter I can not say if they fit true to size or not, I do know that the size I bought fit her just right. (I'm only guessing but I bet I went with others saying they run small and I went a little bigger) she wore these on a week AT trip. she did break them in a little before, putting maybe 10 miles or so on them. when we were out for the week her feet stayed dry (we did water treat them 2 times before ) and we had rain every day! and she had no blisters. she really likes them

Took a few tries, but now I'm in love!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I initially ordered two pairs of this boot: a size 8.5 and a size 9 to try and get the perfect fit (for reference, I recently purchased a pair of Chacos in size 8 that fit perfectly). Well, I got the boots and they were BOTH too small. The 8.5 was nowhere near large enough, but the 9 might have just barely been a proper length. But boy was is narrow! Thanks to the AWESOMELY easy return policy of, I was able to return both easily (and print out the shipping tag with the proper weight on it and everything! So much more convenient than REI returns if you ask me). I ordered the 9.5 and finally, I was able to get a nice cozy fit.

These boots are narrower than other hiking boots I've been wearing recently, but it does seem to cradle my foot like they claim they should. I've worn them for about a month now every day. I work as a field biologist at a National Park, so I spend time hiking around in them almost every day. I've also gone on one small overnight backpacking trip. I've had one blister so far (on my big toe), but besides that I?m really impressed. They do seem to be breaking in the longer I wear them and are markedly more comfortable now than they were a month ago.

The reason I wanted to make these work so badly is because I've been going through synthetic boots like crazy (Two separate boot both costing around $150-200, not lasting more than 3 months each. Ridiculous.). I'm hoping to find a sturdy, tough, leather boot that can withstand the beating that my lifestyle seems to put on my footwear. So far, these seem really nicely constructed and show little sign of wear, besides a few nicks in the leather here and there. The sole of this boot is also really impressive. I feel like I have great grip even when walking down fairly steep rock faces. I'm leaving soon to go on a 2 week backpacking trip for work in Yellowstone and will try to remember to update this review with my impressions on how the boot holds up in some rough off-trail conditions.

Had to return them.

  • 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 :(

  • 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!

  • 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

  • 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.
