Smooth Ride

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the accommodating fit and smooth ride. While the stack height is high, this shoe is not a marshmallow. I've only used it on easy days and that's what I think it's best for. The shoe is not light and I'm ok with that. The grip seems adequate although I wouldn't complain if NF used Vibram Megagrip. The heel to toe drop is just right for me and the lockdown is great. When I first got the shoe there was a little heel slip, but after two runs the shoe felt more molded to my foot. The fit is true to size length-wise but wider than other trail shoes I've used.

Great addition to The North Face trail running line

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Caveat: I'm a trail runner sponsored by The North Face. I was part of the beta testing for the Altamesa 500 and was stoked on the ride and comfort from early on in the process. These are now my go-to shoes for nearly all my long runs and easy/recovery days when I'm not in one of the VECTIV shoes. They are soft and plush but still feel responsive and stable for all but the most technical terrain.

Everything is perfect but one

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] There's one drawback lack of rock protection plate. Yes the midsole is thick enough for protection but itself needs protection from tree thorn and other rocky elements.

New favorite trail shoe!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Right out of the box these shoes are a blast. Light weight, responsive, springy and big guy approved! About 40 miles and I'm craving more miles!
