A sonic boom in the mountains.
Just like your favorite blue videogame character, The North Face Men's Hedgehog Fastpack Mid GTX Hiking Boots force you to be faster. The full grain leather upper is coated in PU for durability and flexibility, which is perfect for long hikes and mountain excursions. If it starts to rain or snow, Gore-Tex technology protects a waterproof shield. These boots are crafted with a lace closure, TPU cradle footbed, EVA midsole, and Vibram rubber sole. So no matter how long you’re hiking with friends, these boots get you to the destination faster than your friends, which means you get first dibs on drinks.

So far, so awesome
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 11
I have had these shoes about a month and have already taken them through the snow, mud, water and sidewalk.
They have a great feel through all terrain, they keep my feet dry, have decent traction (walking through mud then over wet logs). I may buy some insoles to help my flat feet for longer hikes, but not necessary for the 3-4 I've been going on the last 2 weeks. I love the toe with the rubber all around and especially the notches cut into the bending area (last NF shoes I had delaminated on me).
All around great in the NE! Spud likes them too!
Lightweight, Comfortable, Waterproof
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 10
I hike weekly in the Pacific NW, usually between 4-8 miles.
I rotate these boots with a pair of low-top North Face hiking shoes and I think I prefer these. Even tho they are mid-top, they feel less 'clunky' and are lighter than the low-tops I have.
They're waterproof / goretex - useful in the cool, wet falls of PNW, but I wouldn't plan on wearing these year-round. The few times I have worn them it has been cool / raining / damp and they've kept my feet dry. Great grip on the soles, even on wet rocks and roots, and they're pretty much good to wear out of the box - not much break-in time required - this is a great boot for weekend day hikers.
I am normally a Size 10; these are just the slightest bit roomy at Size 10. I combat this with thicker socks and inserts. Would recommend trying a half-size down.
My father is has been converted fully
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 12
I gave these as a gift to my father. He hasn't been able to put them through the wringer yet, but is excited to when the weather permits. They are true to size and lightweight.
I just purchased the Men's Hedghog Winter Boot do I need to spray before using and what spray product do you recommend?
