    Built to go the distance in comfort.

    Whether you're tackling the AT, the PCT, or the CDT for the first time, The North Face Men's Endurus Hike Mid GTX Hiking Boot ensures you do it in total protection and lightweight, breathable comfort. A highly breathable and waterproof Gore-Tex membrane provides you with unfailing protection against severe rainstorms and puddle-ridden trails, while the FlashDry collar lining keeps your feet cool and dry on muggy, humid days.

    Industry-leading OrthoLite footbeds offer all-day comfort to help fight fatigue, which are bolstered by the XtraFoam midsole that consists of softer-density foam underfoot and firmer EVA around the edge for a blend of stability and plush comfort. If you're scrambling over boulders at the summit, rely on the ESS Snake Plate for torsional rigidity and protection from stone bruising, and the Vibram XS Trek sole for multi-terrain traction over slick surfaces.

    Super comfortable, but...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    First, if I was rating these strictly on comfort, they would easily get 5 Stars. These are super comfortable to wear. I hike in the northeast, and the trails are full of boulders, loose rock, and tree roots, and typically on longer hikes the bottoms of my feet start to hurt. Not with these. I've done a few 15+ mile day hikes with these since getting them, and the bottoms of my feet have yet to bother me. In that regard, these would probably be the best hiking boots I've ever owned.

    However, I'm skeptical of their durability. I've put just over 100 miles on these boots so far, and I already have small chunks missing from the tread. I know these northeast trails can beat up boots, but none of my prior boots have shown tread wear like this so soon. Hence why I'm rating these at 3 stars. For the price, I'd expect these to hold up better than they have.

    As for sizing, I feel they run true to size. I typically wear an 11 in most shoe and boot brands, and the 11 in these were spot on. I do have a slightly wider foot, and have plenty of room in these.

    If the problem doesn't get any worse, I'll update the review (if that's possible?). I typically get around 600-700 miles out of my boots before I feel the need to replace them. If these can end up lasting me that long, they'll probably be my new go-to boot and I'll probably buy a few more pairs next time around just in case Northface decides to change them. But after the first 100 miles, I'm just not sure they'll last me that long. I'm hoping the initial signs of tread wear don't continue, because these boots are like walking on clouds.

    My favorite pair of trail runners are made by The North Face, so I decided to give these a try. I recently used them on a very rugged multi day hike. The terrain I was navigating had extreme elevation changes, no marked trails, full of fallen trees and rocks, and a few small streams. I can confidently say you will be hard pressed to find a tougher test for these shoes than what I just put them through last weekend. They performed beautifully.



    I enjoyed the lightweight and waterproof uppers that were light enough to not add fatigue for longer distance hikes but still stiff enough to prevent ankle twists and injuries. The weight is something I detest about traditional "hiking boots" and these feel more like tennis shoes in the weight department. These still do have a heavy duty sole however. I couldn't feel any pain, discomfort, or even real pressure from knobby stumps or rocks I trekked over which impressed me. I inspected the soles after my trip fully expecting to find large chunks or gashes and found no signs of wear on the rubber bottoms, and very limited signs of use on the foam sides. I also liked the secure lacing system that has eyes AND hooks towards the top. I preferred the eyes for ankle security (see terrain description above) but if you like the hook system or wanted these loose at the top for more ankle bend you could use them that way as well.



    Sizing is just a tad big, but not enough that Id recommend sizing down. I think the extra room is built in purposefully to accommodate a good pair of hiking socks (I 100% recommend merino wool). If you for some reason plan on hiking in thin or no socks you might want to size down 1/2 size.



    For leisure hikes with my kids, Ill still put on my trail runners, but I am really glad to have these boots waiting for me whenever I plan a trip into dense forest or otherwise rugged terrain.
