Why We Like The North Face Summit VECTIV Sky Running Shoe

A protective and breathable construction, optimal support and stability, and excellent traction make The North Face Summit VECTIV Sky Running Shoe a must-have in our trail running shoe collection. Its new foam technology is lightweight and comfortable, but what we really like is the VECTIV 2.0 rockered midsole which features a carbon-fiber plate and a forked design in the heel and forefoot for the best support possible on the toughest terrain.

Was hopeful, but they didn't work for me

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] They felt comfortable at first, but the tops were a little stiff and pinched the top of my foot, so they were returned.

Awesome trail shoes.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These shoes are lightweight and super responsive. They are great for long trail runs or fast shorter races. I've worn them in down pouring rain with no issues of them getting soggy.

No

Good with new insoles.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The carbon piece near the toe rubes on the outside of my big toe. I did get new insoles and they then fit perfectly. They feel fast and nibble on my feet. Would buy again.

Fast on technical trails.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 100% technical trail running show and it performs well for this purpose.

Looks as good as it runs!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I ordered these after the soles on my Vectiv Pros basically went bald in three months (although one of the lightest and most comfortable shoes I've ever worn). Soles seems "harder" on this show in a good way. Fit also seems a touch narrower, too. As far as design-it's off the charts fire. Looking forward to dirtying up!

Light, but I question the durability

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This shoe was a large change for me with NF trail running shoes. I love the Ultra series. Why? Because I'm running through mud, streams, and snow. These are lighter and have a fast roll to them and it seems NF is catering to ultra-marathon crowd. My feeling is that these shoes won't last long. After I've taken them for a few runs. Plus, they did give me a blister until I broke them in, and the color??? Can't wait to see them after I tromp through a couple of mud stretches, which on the trails I live near can last miles. I think they might be better for cross-country runners

I would buy this product again and again.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been running in several of the Vocative models and these are flat out amazing. If I had to tweak "anything" on these, it would be just a "touch" more cushion. Not so much as the pro (and before anyone recommends I simply buy the pro, the reason I love these shows SO much is that they're the first trail shoe in the past two years from ANY big ultra company that the upper does not slip on my foot bombing the technical AND I don't have to yank the laces or do some crazy custom lacing to get them to stay secure for me.) I don't know what's up with companies like Hoka for instance - I've ran in all their trail shoes since 2011. Speedgoats today are sloppy loose stretchy uppers that I saw multiple people rolling their feet in on rocky terrain at WS100 this year. The Tekton - SAME. Awesome shoe, but you can't keep that upper secure to save your life. A training run in either of those (or race) ends up in a re-tie multiple times over a few hours. They're just not practical. Enter this Summit Series VECTIVE Sky? Holy cow. I love the snoopy lacing - there's NO hot spots on my foot. The upper materials are SECURE & COMFORTABLE, the laces are light and do not loosen and the shoe GRIPS my foot without choking off any part of it. BONUS - I have meatloaf toes... In these? I have room to wiggle fine. They're no issue. This is the fourth version of the Vective's I've tried. The Infinite 4 seemed to be my go to, though the 5 seems "weird". It lost its responsiveness. Just it simply feels slower. I put these Sky's on though...immediately I had a peppy run on tired legs. The carbon doesn't get in the way of "feel" not he trail and there's enough cushion to keep me going all day easy. (I always want a touch more though.)

Really wanted to love this shoe

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After my first run in these shoes I was over the moon and was already considering another pair. That was 10 miles on rolling trails. Then a week ago, I took the shoes and ran 20 miles and about 8k of vert and they destroyed my ankles. I took them on another 10 miler yesterday hoping they could still be good for those rolling trails but the rubbing on my ankles made me wish I wasn't on a loop trail and could escape back to the car to end my run. The shoe seems so cool the new materials and updates really seemed positive on that first run out of the box, but the structure of the collar has a hard cord like material that digs into my ankles especially on downhills. I love the Vectiv Flights, and have had 5 pairs over the last 2 years and used that model to run 3 different 100 mile races and a smattering of smaller ultras. I was really hoping these would be a similar shoe only updated, but these are very different. Size wise they are similar, a bit wider and roomier, I wear a 9 in both, maybe I could size down a half for the Sky, I have wide toes so more room in the box is a benefit. The Flights have much more support and protection underfoot. The Sky's have a lot more ground feel than I am looking for and don't ride at all like the flights, very little cushion. I do like the rocker and foams they are using, but wish there was a little more foam stack in the Sky's to soften the ride. I like the new laces, as the laces on the Flights always came undone on me, the new laces don't but I worry they may fray. The heel cup wraps better and will likely have less issues with dirt and stones entering the shoe on runs, (needed gaiters on the flights), the rocker is great and it feels like a super fast shoe. If your foot is shaped different and your ankle doesn't rub on the collar, these shoes may be a great short distance racer. Sadly, they don't work for me.

Comfortable, Stylish and Fast

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Trail Running is my hobby. The North Face has really upped their game in the trail shoe community. This shoe is comfortable and durable. The shoe feels fast and keeps me on my midsole. I am enjoying them coming from the Enduris II and Infinite shoes from last season.
