Run it out.
No, it's not the elevator music that's making your legs involuntarily move on your way down from the office—it's the fact that you need to get out and run, and The North Face Men's Ultra Endurance Trail Running Shoes are the perfect pair to take your running addiction from the street to the trail. With lightweight uppers and supportive TPU and suede overlays, these trail runners keep you light on your feet while offering adequate support for rugged terrain.
The North Face pulled all the stops with these shoes by integrating ESS Snake Plates for serious rock protection, Ultra Protect Cradle heel stability technology, and single-density EVA midsoles for a cushioning and responsive ride. TNF even threw Vibram soles under these shoes, ensuring solid traction on loose, wet, or rocky trails.

- Q & A
Durability, traction, fit = best ever
I bought these shoes for the first time in January of '17, to give me a little extra traction on my wintry morning runs, and I have been overwhelmingly impressed. Since then, I have put just over 600 miles them, and I'm in the process of replacing them with another pair now, even though there is still some good tread left. These are true to fit and very comfortable, and their performance on wet surfaces is simply incredible. I've used them in the snow, ice, rain, and on black top, concrete, and trails of all kinds. I've even used them in runs as long as 13+ miles without the soreness I've encountered with other shoes. There may be lighter shoes on the market, but I prefer the support that these provide. If you want a shoe that can take on any terrain in any weather condition, one that is durable and will last much longer than most shoes in these category, and a shoe that looks tough, consider your search over. I will be a loyal fan and user of this shoe for as long as The North Face makes it.
Good fit, good looking shoe
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 12.5
I've run in it a few times and I like it. Nice shoe, not too heavy... I'm a fan.
Sizing Seems Strange
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
I ended up returning this shoe because the sizing seems like it's off by about half a size. The shoe seemed nice, but it was just too small to be comfortable. I ended up buying another pair of The North Face in my natural size that fit a lot better.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
North Face trail shoes are fast becoming my favorites. Very lightweight, but still offer full protection in the sole. The rubber is decently stiff as well, so doesn't end up breaking down on the hot, dry, and rocky terrain here in UT. Fit is great out of the box. For trail shoes, I go a half size up to accommodate for foot swelling and for some room for toes to move on the downhill.
My new downhill favorites!
Digging these for the downs! Seems like the right amount of cushion for big downhills, I loved them for Granduer west face downhill today and it's a decent long haul shoe too. I like the tread, but it's not for super slimy mud, I'll stick to Mudclaw 300 for the rainy days.
