North Face never disappoint me. This sneakers are very comfy for all travel terrain, lightweight, and great support. I using this to travel Thailand, Phuket, Malaysia and Singapore. The grey/blue look awesome and stylish!

I am a big fan of North Face products but not their shoes. Like other reviews written on Zappos I have found that the soul separates on this shoe model. I would not recommend this product...do not get this shoe!

First time buying NF shoes, very comfortable, more comfortable than my shoes with the swoosh. Purpose of buying them was to hike up Camelback Mountain in AZ and also to do some hiking in Hawaii. During my hike at CB shoes performed wonderfully. Traction and comfort better than I thought. Will definitely buy NF shoes again.

I ordered these for my wife for Christmas. They did not fit so I ordered the next size up and they came in right away. They were a good fit (she wanted a men's size). They look good and are good quality.

This is my second pair of these shoes, I purchased the first pair at a TNF outlet. The shoes lasted 5 years and had normal wear, I finally disposed of them per my wife's request. I couldn't find a replacement on sale anywhere, so had to pay full price, they are definitely worth it for everyday comfort. I normally wear a size 10, but had to bump up to a 10 1/2. Goretex is great for wet grass and normal trail hiking.

Being flat footed I need a good arch support. North face has never failed to deliver an over the top product. I love these shoes!

Second pair of North Face shoes and soles coming apart. Love the style but the quality is not there. Will not purchase North Face shoes again.

Light and supportive and my favorite pair of TNF shoes to date! I have trouble running in shoes that are too cushy or too minimalist - these are an awesome mix. Overall rating is lower based on the fact that like others the lace straps broke on my first pair the second time I laced them up and really poor design and quality control. So far replacement pair is holding up well.

I really liked these shoes when they came out of the box. I put my Super Feet in, and they felt great. I went to tie them, and one of the lacing loops just ripped in two.

Like others said the laces ripped after minimal use and the sole peeled. I had 2 pairs of hedgehogs before this and got my moneys worth. Garbage!

I'm a big fan of North Face and have owned several of their shoes. The sole peels off the bottom of this shoe. I read other reviews that said the same thing but I figured they just got a bad pair. After 2 weeks of use the sole is coming off, I'm going to try and glue it back on but really 2 weeks?

I'll add my voice to another earlier reviewer. The sole separates from this shoe. The front pad lifts from where it attaches to the side of the shoe. Otherwise, it was a comfortable shoe that provides good support.

Lacing strap broke as I was lacing up the first time. Now I'm concerned about getting a replacement if this is a weak point.

Great looking shoe, comfortable, durable....yet the soul is poorly made. This is the second pair of North Face Ultras I am returning. The soul literally separates. There are two parts I think, and the outer part starts to peel away at the edges. Very disappointing, and nothing of the quality I was expecting from North Face.
