Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Made to fit comfortably while hiking and provide a precision fit when scrambling and edging, The North Face Women's Buildering Shoes incorporate the essential performance features of an approach shoe, with the stability and comfort of a hiking shoe. They're outfitted with Vibram's sticky rubber over the forefoot for a suction grip when scrambling and have mid-shoe hiking lugs for hiking stability. They're also built around a climbing shoe last so they have a fit narrower than hiking shoes lending more confident edging. Loosen the laces to give your toes more room on the hike in, then tighten for technical footing. Loosen again for the post climb pub stop. *Not Available for Shipment to Canada.

If you've ever hiked for miles to a scrambling destination only to find that your sticky rubber shoes were locked away back in your car at the trailhead, The North Face Buildering shoe is a practical solution that lightens your packload and your packing worries. This innovative shoe features a sophisticated dual-compound sole consisting of Vibram hiking lugs with a sticky rubber compound around the toe, forefoot and edges. Extra compound around the heel extends the life of the shoe by slowing trail wear on the sticky rubber sections. The laces extend further down the shoe so you can tighten up in technical spots and loosen the laces on the flat stretches. The North Face Buildering shoe gives you the best of both worlds without the hassles of packing an extra pair of shoes or hiking boots.

- Altrec Outdoors
