The North Face Prophecy II

Price Paid: waay too much ($90)
These have phenomenal Vibram soles with very aggressive tread, perfect for dirt/gravel trail runs. It has decent ventilation. Standing still, you can feel a breeze through the mesh sides. The material and stitching has held up great so far. I can't find any downfall in this shoe.
My only complaint is how much I paid for this shoe, and how much more affordable it is now.
I wouldn't recommend this shoe for any pavement or treadmill running. There are much better options out there for that purpose.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Ready for fast-paced scrambles and quick day hikes, the Prophecy II from The North Face is a lightweight hiker with serious tread. The multi-directional lugs on the sticky Vibram outsoles provide stability, the ergonomic Northotic footbed supports your feet and the durable synthetic nubuck uppers with ample mesh ventilation help prevent hot feet.
