Good boot - I don't believe I had the right fit. My first and wonderful pair of older North Face hiking boots developed a serious defect (popping sound) in the soles. North Face no longer made that shoe so they sent me a replacement in the Light GTX in the same size. Problem is different fit. Horrible fit, actually. They feel very large and somewhat "clumpy."

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The North Face Trek Light GTX Hiking Boot will take you over the river, through the woods, and back again. Heck, they'll take you THROUGH the river, too they're waterproof. Weighing just 2.5 pounds per pair, they are light enough for day hikes but provide enough support for weeklong adventures. The key to the Trek Light's outstanding weight savings is the revolutionary outsole that offers maximum traction and support in a lightweight design. And weight isn't the only thing you'll save. The Trek Light GTX is an incredible value for a Gore-Tex boot.

- Backcountry Outlet refers to the women's version

The name speaks for itself... designed for those that want trekking quality boots without the weight. Full-featured boot is fully waterproof/breathable thanks to Gore-Tex? membrane. Trek Light's outstanding weight comes from the revolutionary outsole that is supportive but lightweight. Suede and synthetic upper. Ht. 5", 2 lb. 14 oz. pr. <b>Closeouts</b>. Romania. Note: Runs small, order ? size larger.

- Sierra Trading Post refers to the men's version

Don't let the word "Light" in the product name fool you. The waterproof and breathable North Face Trek Light GTX is far hardier than many "light" day hike boots. In fact, The North Face recommends it for five-day backpacking outings, provided that your pack doesn't exceed fifty pounds in weight. Inside the durable, 2.2-mm. thick Italian leather upper is a waterproof and breathable triple-ply Gore-Tex DuraKool membrane that keeps mud, rain and slush out of your socks. There's also an anatomically shaped Anti-Slip footbed for added comfort and friction control (because blisters on your calluses with three days left on the trail are no fun
