I've gone through three pairs of GTX 106s. They were by far the best trail running and all round trail shoes I've ever had. They were perfect in nearly all conditions. The 106s were very well constructed and all three are still 100% intact and functional, albeit in a diminished capacity due to tread wear. When I saw the 106s were replaced by the 109s I was frantic when I could not find 106s anywhere, but went ahead and ordered the 109s. Upon inspection it was obvious VF Corp saved some money on the construction of the 109s. I tried them on and they were comfortable but required a break-in. I did some moderate hikes and runs and was satisfied, though I knew I was in a cheaper shoe. However, when they were 3 weeks old I spent a weekend hiking Linville Gorge and the adhesive from the sole to the midsole failed on both shoes. I'm returning them. Very disappointed they wrecked the perfect shoe.

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.

These are great hiking/athletic shoes. They have very good support, yet they required no breaking in whatsoever. I was dismayed when I could no longer find the Hedgehogs, but these are every bit as comfortable.

Bought this shoe a year ago and absolutely love it! Started doing Appalachian Trail hikes a couple of years ago and had a hard time finding the right shoe. Even tried hiking in running shoes. I was wearing Merrell Moabs but felt my feet were taking a beating. Someone at REI suggested this shoe and its been perfect! I've done about 100 miles on the App Trail plus wear them on a regular basis. The snake plate on these shoes is fantastic, walking on rocks is completely unfelt. They have a great non-slip bottom and great traction for those muddy areas. These were great on the trail because they also kept my feet dry. I will be purchasing again.

I'd also recommend: none

Had these previously but wore them out at work. I work outdoors and I'm on my feet 80% of the day. Needed comfy and lightweight sneakers. These give me both. I bought 2 pairs just in case they discontinue them. These 2 pairs will make 8th pairs of sneakers/boots I own made by North Face.
