Like this boot!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

Have used these boots in wet and rocky terrain hiking areas surrounding the Shenandoah Valley. They keep my feet dry and comfortable and I really love the light weight. I ordered 1/2 size smaller than my dress shoe size and they fit nicely except a smidge tight in the toe box, but still comfy. I really hope they last me for many years.

wet feet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I bought this shoe back in January to take me on walks through rough fields and slightly hilly terrain around our farm. I love them. They are so comfortable and light weight so I do not feel that I am lugging cast iron on my feet, being waterproof was a big selling point. but.......

After just a few months of wear, the walk this morning ended with wet feet. I did not cross any raging rivers or slog through streams. I merely walked in low grass wet from the morning dew.

These boots have been in these fields before without this result, so I am not sure what the problem is.

Super comfortable hiking shoes!

I bought these hiking shoes to replace my old North Face Hedgedhog Gortex. These are a lot more comfortable and lighter, I could almost run in them. They are a lot more narrow in the toe box than my old hiking boots though and I prefer wider toe box because I usually put other insoles in them. These hiking shoes however are very comfortable without any other insoles. I really like the girly colors, I got the purple and they look really nice. I think that the mesh collar and tongue are too thin, I prefer more cushion but I guess that is why they breath so well.

I first took them on a 9 mile hike with a 3,000 ft elevation gain and they performed really well, very comfortable the whole time, good support as well. I have to see how they perform in wet conditions but so far I love them.

would these be good for snowshoeing?

There are a variety of different winter boots that would serve well for snowshoeing and the The North Face Wreck Mid GTX. Some boots will be more stiff and more waterproof which makes them ideal for intense climbs and deep backcountry trekking. Other boots may be much lighter, and while waterproof, they place more of a premium on breathability and are better used for snowshoe running or light hiking. If that were a spectrum of snowshoeing boots then The North Face Wreck Mid GTX would fit right in the middle. These boots would serve very well for snowshoe hiking and even light running, but slap on a beefy set a gaiters and you could take these a little further into the backcountry.

Do you recommend sizing up in this boot?...

Do you recommend sizing up in this boot? I'm between a 6.5 and a 7 and may wear a custom orthotic with it if necessary. I have a narrow heel and medium width foot. I don't want my toes hitting the end but the heel has to be secure. Also is this the same boot currently on TNF website but a different color? Thank you.

I bought these shoes back in August in a color not listed and absolutely love them .I'm a size 7 medium width and the fit is perfect !! I've worn them like crazy since my purchase. On backpacking trips, hiking, camping..for whatever. The waterproofing is great, haven't had any leaks, which was my biggest concern. Overall a great hiking shoe !!
