Dougwrote a review of The North Face Hedgehog Fastpack GTX Hiking Shoe - Men's on February 2, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Context is important, I've owned 3 pair of Hedgehogs over the years. I'm middle aged athletic and my knees and back feel the years of abuse. About the shoes: first off, no shoe is perfect , I always purchase a better insole and the laces tend to wear out and that's the bad. That said...I wear my Hedgehogs whenever I can because when I do the pain goes away, simple as that. I'm no expert but I can only surmise that it's because of the structure, sole and support, that's my best guess. What I do know for certain is that the Hedgehog is light weight, water resistant, tough shoe that looks good on the street and are off-road friendly. In my honest opinion, the Hedgehog is the enduro motor cycle of shoes and I wear them as much as possible.
