The North Face ULTRA GTX Hiking Shoes Review

This is a review of The North Face MEN’S ULTRA 110 GTX® hiking shoes.

Reviewed a lot of hiking shoes before I purchased The North Face Men’s Ultra 110 GTX hiking shoes.
I ordered these shoes right from The North Face Canada site. Price was $159.99 plus tax (Canadian)
Shoes came very quick and were comfortable right out of the box. They were pretty light for hiking shoes. North Face advertised them as trail shoes, but these are hiking shoe’s for sure. They have a mid foot shank to protect from rocks along the trail. They also have a protective toe to protect you against rocks & stumps.
Shoe’s are very comfortable, seem well built and didn’t need a break in period. My first hike with them was about 15 Kms in the snow. They kept my feet dry and with good socks they were kept fairly warm, although temperatures were only around -1 C.
The eyelets look very weak for such a nice shoe. Reviews I’ve read say that they break easy but I took a chance anyways. I haven’t had any problems with them so far, but The North Face should look at making better eyelets in the future since these are hiking shoes and they will go through more rough country then regular shoes. The traction is great on these shoes and I feel like they can climb just about anything, it really does make a difference getting a good quality hiking shoe for those adventures. The shoes feel more like a low cut hiking boot then trail shoes, which is what I wanted as I would be carrying a load of 35-45 pounds on technical trails & rough country.
All in all they are a great looking shoe, feel great on your feet and the size is bang on. I’m a size 10 and they fit like a size 10 should.
I’m a big fan of The North Face and they have always came out with quality stuff, let’s just hope these shoes hold up!
