The North Face Betasso
Price Paid: $70
An okay shoe. The tread is similar to a road running shoe and should not be used on a technical or wet trail. The weight is fine, nothing special. I have used these for training on Mt. Diablo and in a couple of races.
I rarely use these because I prefer the North Face Chinscraper or Singletrack. I am surprised that The North Face is still selling this shoe, since it is an old model and they make better shoes like the Rucky Chucky, Chinscrapper and others.
Materials: Mesh upper
Use: ALL Terrain
Break-in Period: None
Price Paid: $80
Had this for one year already. Can wear on almost any terrain and will not disappoint. Working in Afghanistan, if it can survive this harsh place it can survive anywhere.
