User Review: The North Face Men's Verbera Lightpacker GTX
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $110
Wow, not even 100 trail miles and they are wearing out. I really had high hopes, but disappointed.
- Fit was great for my foot
- Rubber separating from cloth
- Soles are already wearing at less than 100 trail miles (less than a year)
When I saw these in a North Face store I fell in love with them. I tried them on, fit great, felt good. I did a couple Long backpacks with these boots and never felt any foot pain.
BUT here is what is so sad... they are wearing out much too quickly. Not that I have abused them either — maybe 80 miles have been trail and off trail (but nothing big) use and the soles are wearing out, and the rubber is pulling away from the tops.
I really liked these boots, kept my feet dry when it rained for 4 days straight on the trail, never a blister or hot spot. Too bad the quality is not what North Face should be known for.
