Kudos to North Face. These days I am not really into top-notched brands because of their poor quality, and the only reason people buy it is because of the brand name.. But for this review, it all changed that.
I am into long day hikes and haul a lot so I looked for a trail shoe that is lightweight and durable, plus some Gore-tex and perks in it. So I got myself these pairs for $130.
I thought first the sole would wear out easily because of its lightness factor but to my surprise it withstood some of the worse terrain here in the Philippines, some of its knobs got off though but the whole thing is solid up to know. Its waterproofness and breathable mesh proved tremendously reliable and the only thing bad about it is it's too light that you won't feel your wearing one.
Overall, more than 2 years of usage, I think I'm gonna buy another one of this.
