User Review: The North Face Men's Hedgehog GTX XCR
Price Paid: 999 NOK
Bought these for walking my Newfoundland dog. I live in west Norway and we get more than our fair share of rain. These shoes are two months old (or more accurately I bought them two months ago).
The grips/treads on these shoes is surprisingly good; especially on wet stones and wet grass. Build quality is good.
But the main reason that I bought these shoes was to keep my feet dry; these shoes have only been used for walking my dog (i.e. no approaches to climbs or any similar demanding activity) and the Gore-tex lining has already parted and my feet get wet. This is very disappointing and now I've found the receipt, the shoes are going back tomorrow.
If the Gore-tex lining isn't high on your priority list then these shoes are good; if you need the Gore-tex lining then from my experience I have to say that they are rather poor.
