User Review: The North Face Men's Hedgehog Mid GTX XCR
Use: long day hikes over rigorous trails.
Break-in Period: a good week
Price Paid: $80
1. Waterproof, quick dry.
2. I have found these to have very good gripping with the Vibram soles the way they're made.
1. Very crappy lacing pegs, posts, eyelets, or whatever TNF calls them made out of plastic, and if your going to replace the laces-which you will because they're crap-you have to use needlenose pliers to pull them through the eyelets.
2. The forward part of the sole that rests below the front ball of your feet directly behind your toes will allow you to feel any above average rock you step on in the trailway. The Vibram soles are thin up front.
3. XCR? where?
Don't waste your money.
