After three pairs of the 106 from REI, I went to REI for another, but found the 109 on the shelf instead. Tread is identical, upper is similar, basic sizing/fit seemed the same (12/12), so I got a pair of 109s. Having worn them past break-in, I'm returning the 109s because the on-the-trail feel is completely different from the 106. Specific differences include that I feel rocks more than with the 106, and that the throat closes together more when snugging the laces, suggesting the upper is cut way different (not the same last?). Overall not as comfortable.

This shoe is VERY comfortable. Great for hiking, running, or just exploring town. It's rugged yet lightweight. Seems like they are very well made and will hold up for a long time.

I work on concrete floor all day and do a lot of trail walking so I was looking for a shoe that could do double duty for both work and play. I have a pair of North Face boots that are so comfortable I decided to try a pair of North Face running shoes. I found the fit of the 109 GTX to be identical to my North Face boots that is to say max comfortable right out of the box ! .... I wear a size ten and these were perfectly sized ......I like the muted colors and the fact that the shoe has Gortex to keep me dry on a long trail walk and a strong toe kick for shop use ..... the price was a bit steep but I feel they were worth the few extra bucks to get something comfortable and durable that meets my needs..... My purchase decision was influenced by the other reviews so goes around comes around and thanks to the other folks that took the time to write a review. I think I'll pick up a second pair in the near future because it isn't often that I find a shoe I like this much.

I honestly can't believe the torture these shoes have endured. I climbed 10,000 feet to Camp Muir in them. I floated countless miles of Deschutes River in them. I scrambled the Deer Mountain rock slide in them. They made Mount Ellinor a breeze. They got me into and out of Anza-Berrego. They made every mud run a cake walk. I have put these shoes through the worst kinds of abuse and only now, a year later, are they showing signs of wear. I honestly hated them at first - the internal "sock" felt tight, they are heavy, they're aesthetically boring - but never has a single pair of shoes lasted this long with what I put shoes through. I've been shopping for months and still don't know if I can trust another make or model, so laces tattered, soles worn, and seams finally splitting (the rubber bits on the outsole are peeling away), my 109s soldier on. Get this shoe if you want mountain goat grip, rock-impact protection, and dry socks at the end of a hike or harsh trail run. Don't get them if you are a speed demon or marathon runner - they are durable but they aren't light and don't drain after submerging them. You should also go for a few runs to acclimate to the sock squeeze. These are currently my most comfortable shoe, but I had to spend a year beating them into submission, and they aren't waterproof anymore - a puny price to pay after so many months of infallible service protecting and serving my feet.

I'd also recommend: Salomon, Scarpa, Lowa, Keen, Patagonia

Very pleased after one week. Very light but with sold support. Easy to walk in. Comfortable from the start - no break in required.
