I had been in pain in my achilles and shins for about a month and I KNEW that I really needed some new running shoes but everything I tried on either had too much heal, not enough toe drop, etc etc... I'm not a long distance runner at this point. I typically run between 1 and 4 miles a day, 6-7 days a week. I wanted not quite a minimalist shoe, but not something bulky either... So I found these Northface shoes and decided to give them a go on a treadmill (you know, incase I needed to return them).. I shit you not, within a half mile of my run, all the pain in my achilles and shins went away. The next day I ran my first 5k on the treadmill in over a month with NO pain. I love these shoes and I can't wait to get another pair. They have great traction on them so I definitely want to get another pair to take hiking/trail running! I think these are the perfect shoe for those of us in that between stage of being able to have minimalist shoes and needing just a bit of support. Or if you just want a super light weight shoe that hugs your foot without a huge heal to ruin your stride.

Wow, I was looking for a workout shoe that I could wear outside for my workout. I was not looking for a running shoe, Hiking shoe, or even pure gym shoe. This shoes will allow me to be in the elements and do my workouts outside. I have only had the shoe for three weeks, a total of ten workouts, but the shoe is holding up, most other shoes do not with what I put them thru, thus I always get stuck with a heavy hiking type of shoe. North face might just have hit a home run with this shoe. I wear an 11 in almost every brand, and I ordered an 11 and it fit perfect.

I have been wearing North Face trail running shoes for about 10 years now for working out in the gym and normal every day wear. I have started running and thought I would try these as I really liked the way they looked and how light they are. I sent my first pair back because they were too narrow and ordered a half size larger. The larger pair fit much better in the width and length. My only other problem with the shoe is that it does not have nearly as good of cushion/padding as my previous 4 pairs of North Face shoes. The shoes look great but I would not recommend them for running with such little cushion.

They look better in the picture. I usually wear black nike free's, so they looked goofy when I wore them. They also felt a full size smaller. I wear size 11 normally.

Very disappointed in the quality of the fabric. After only a few months of occasional wear the fabric on the uppers is tearing. I love the style but I'm going to return them.
