Despite its name, The North Face Men's Hedgehog Fastpack Hiking Shoe was not meant for shuffling along mellow trails--this lightweight hiker was designed for moving fast on technical trails. The PU-coated leather and abrasion-resistant mesh provides the right combination of toughness, breathability, and light weight, and the TPU quarter weld offers a stable, supportive feel. Cradle Guide dual-density EVA midsole cushions impact while providing additional support and an energetic feel. It's finished off with a Vibram outsole for optimal traction on wet or dry trails.
