The North Face Men's Ultra 109 GTX Trail Running Shoes

Looks good, waterproofing is great, incredibly uncomfortableI have had these shoes for over a year now, and wear them once or twice per week for hiking and rock climbing. They look great. The waterproofing is outstanding. I have gone hiking in very wet and muddy conditions, and they keep my feet dry. They have been very durable considering the amount of strenuous hiking I have done over the past year throughout the Southwest and Appalachians. The cushioning is very good for hiking shoes. However, they are extremely narrow around the ball of the foot and the toes. My toes are always bruised and in a great deal of pain after each hike (usually 6-10 hours). I got them a half size larger than my foot size, and the salesperson told me that they would be more comfortable after they were broken in, but that has not occurred. I can't wait until I can afford another pair of hiking shoes, and I will definitely not be buying these again.

Great Comfort and Amazing WaterproofingI have owned 5 pairs of the Merrell Moab WP shoes and 2 pairs of Soloman WP shoes, but I always had the same problem with both brands; after 5-6 months of continuous wear the soles would fall apart and waterproofing failed. I bought this shoe on a whim and The North Face has quickly won me over. Owned the Ultra 109 GTX shoe for close to 1.5 years, before I started to see the sole come apart and the material tear, BUT they continue to stay waterproof. I wear the shoe on a daily basis and because I farm, they are constantly exposed or submerged in chemicals and nitrogen that cause most materials to break down. Their unique waterproof liner prevents the waterproofing from failing or holding water in the fabric, unlike any other shoe from competitors. Best shoe I have ever bought and won't hesitate to purchase again in the future.

Awful pair of shoes.I bought myself this pair just six months ago. I went on some trails just to realise how sooner they started tearing. Absolutely not recommended. A huge disappointment.

All form and poor functionI tried to use it, to break it in but it is simply too uncomfortable to put on even that I have set it aside, afraid to use given how tight and how it slows your stride. It feels like you are dragging something with your feet. I am a size 9 but this 9 is way too tight and way too narrow. It makes the shoe look odd on my feet given how it hugs your feet and is tiresome wearing it. I have other pairs from other brands but reading all the reviews, I ordered one, liking its look and rugged features, especially the sole. It did get appreciation from co-workers but only the wearer knows where the shoe bites. I think that this shoe was designed more as a fashion statement than actually being what it is made for - comfort in rugged use. All shoes must be made for comfort, a pro which should be at the base of the feature pyramid, but when the base itself is flawed the rest of the features are hardly anything to go by. I have to return it most likely but am not sure if returns will be accepted if used a few times. Will not recommend this shoe if your feet are slight wider (not even full wide but just a tad wider). The laces came as is a threadbare pair was laced on to the shoe. If you plan to use it (with caution), please loosen the laces completely. I am sorry this did not workout for me and it really one of the worst purchases I've made, an expensive one at that!

Super-comfortable, durable and great in all weather!Although these might be considered hiking or outdoor shoes, they are also great for city-walking, standing at work or casual, everyday shoes. They look great, are comfortable and I'm very happy.

When doing a Google search for this shoe/color/size, it lists Academy as having it for $83.99 + tax and free shipping but I don't get that on your site. ????
