I purchased the Hedgehog Guide in both the waterproof and non-waterproof version to wear to Europe where I'll be hiking & biking as well as walking around cities. To test them out I wore them brand-new on a 10-mile hike around San Francisco. They provided excellent support, they were extremely comfortable and didn't rub or bother my feet at all. I was the only person in our family who wasn't complaining of sore feet at the end of the day. My only complaint is the laces, which constantly came untied even when I double knotted them. Before heading to Europe, I will be replacing the laces with a pair from my Brooks running shoes which stay perfectly tied. The North Face should test laces before placing them in shoes. There's nothing more annoying than wearing a 30-lb pack and having to keep bending down to re-tie the laces. I have the same issue with the laces on my North Face boots that I wear snow-shoeing. I love the boot, but hate the laces. At least the boot laces are long enough that I can triple knot them. My Hedgefrogs thankfully have no laces and are perfect!

These are the least comfortable hiking shoes I have ever worn. Three main problems - the shoelaces don't stay tied, the back digs into your ankle, and there is absolutely no cushioning. After spending all day in these shoes today, I feel like the bottom of my feet are bruised.

Although I do some hiking, I bought these primarily as commuting shoes for non-winter months. They've kept me dry in torrential downpours. Soles are very stiff, a plus for my particular type of foot problem. Good traction for hiking but treacherous when wet on certain urban surfaces, such as metal escalators and ceramic tile (I know that's not what they're intended for). I usually take a wide, but regular fit me fine. Orthotics fit without having to remove manufacturer's insoles, so I'd say they run slightly large. Cons: These shoes are pretty deep. Without my extra orthotics, back comes up uncomfortably high. Laces would not stay tied, even when double knotted -- ridiculous when you consider how much these cost. They're a bit warm in hot weather and make my feet look bigger than they already are.

So disappointed. Wore the previous version of these shoes (Hedgehog II?) for 5 years, until the mesh started wearing out. I love having waterproof shoes for running in the winter, so was expecting the same great shoe from TNF. After a month of wearing these new Hedgehogs almost daily, they are still stiff, and not broken in. I could probably put up with that if they were otherwise comfortable, but they're not. I feel like I am wearing clogs and not a outdoor shoe - the vibram sole in these does not provide much cushion or support.

I recently purchased these for a trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. They were a great buy and wore wonderfully right out of the box! It rained and snowed while we were there and these shoes were a life saver.
