The North Face Ultra 104 GTX XCR
Price Paid: 160 AUD
These shoes are indestructible! Bloody comfortable, can walk all day with a heavy pack too.
Great for walking around cities when traveling to. If I ever see another pair of these shoes in the shops I'm going to stock up.
I've been using them for 2 years now and they are not showing any signs of dying anytime soon. Be around the world with me!
Materials: g-tex xcr
Use: multiple mile dayhikes and trail runs of 10 miles
Traction is very good offroad on all trail conditions but if you walk indoors on a tile floor you risk falling flat on your tail bone as these are treacherously slippery when wet. But offroad they do shine with traction and breathable waterproofness.
My first use was in the Adirondacks for a 4 day backpack. They did shine even though everything from 4000 to 2500 feet was still snow in 80 degree weather in May and the snow would not allow you to take more than 15 steps without dropping in your full leg length for the entire afternoon.
The next day below that the creeks were running knee deep and if you stepped in over your shoe the shoe did not drain so you walked all day in your own personal puddles. Some competitors do offer drains in the insole so I did look for them.
Materials: gore tex
Use: de uso diario
Break-in Period: 3 meses
Price Paid: 69000
tomando en cuenta que no hago excursiones, el zapato en cuestion es de muy mala calidad ya que solo duraron tres meses antes de rajarse a los costados

All this "multi-sport shoe" stuff can be confusing. We'll level with you-The North Face Men's Ultra 104 GTX XCR Trail Running Shoes are totally legit running shoes. But the Gore-Tex waterproof breathable membrane, burly outsole, and supportive midsole also take this shoe into light hiking and approach territory. The Ultra 104 Shoe's forefoot plate winds back and forth between the medial and lateral sides of your foot. Unlike solid plates, this woven plate allows your foot to bend and flex while still providing rigidity. Torque control supports low arches for optimal pronation guidance on your runs and climbing approaches.
