I'm surprised the previous comments on the shoes have been so negative. Sometimes it also means you do not pick-up the right shoes for the right exercise...
I am very happy with my Vapor Lights. They are very comfortable, a lot of cushioning. I use these shoes for trails from 20 to 50 miles on easy and dry terrains. I avoid absolutely to use them on very technical, muddy, wet and rocky grounds. It is not what they are designed for. You would then have high chances to twist your ankles...
So, my advice: select the right shoes! They are perfect for what they have been designed for.
Pieces of garbage! First of all they started falling…
Price Paid: $100
Pieces of garbage!
First of all they started falling apart in the first week! The sole delaminated and the upper started to shred before I even hit the trail.
I wanted a trail runner. The bottoms are so soft that I could feel every rock and pebble. The bottoms also have a hinge where the tread stops and it's just a 5/8" of spongy midsole between your foot and the rock--OUCH! These things are barely walkers, forget about running in them.
The treads squeaked on everything, even carpet, with every step, just to remind me of how much I hate these shoes!
I WILL NEVER BUY ANY THE NORTH FACE FOOTWEAR AGAIN!
PIECES OF GARBAGE......ARGHHHHHH I HATED THEM!
