The North Face® Hedgehog III GTX XCR® All-Terrain Shoes for Men
The fit and finish is good.
I use this for work, casual daily use. After less than a year it loses its cushion, I have to put Dr. Scholl.
It is not that durable, I have other brand in the same price range that perform much better.
I would only recommend if it priced under $50.

I have owned these shoes for a little over a year. (I got a great deal on them Black Friday 2013.) At first my heals hurt a lot. But I suddenly realized that they stopped and the shoes had become the most comfortable for walking around all day in that I owned. There is a break-in period for the heal cup. So for the first couple days, you might want to bring a back-up pair of shoes. But once you get that heal set, it is great.
A bit of info about me and how I use my shoes. I am a woman wearing mens shoes. (They fit Amazingly!!) I don't hike. I wear mine for everyday use. This includes anything from sitting in my office to a day of shopping. They are honestly my goto shoe for long excursions. And my feet have never gotten wet from an accidental puddle splash, and rarely get cold. (And I live in NY where we had Polar Vortex weather of -30s!!) I will admit the coldest days may have been a bit much for these shoes, but they were better than sneakers and much drier.

Love these men's hiking boots. I am a woman and find the fit of these better than a woman's fit. I hike 20 plus miles a week and these are perfect - they conform to your feet, are sturdy, slip resistant, and waterproof. I wear them for year round hiking in the northeast. In saying all that, Northface has discontinued this style. I bought two pairs from Bass Pro, which I over paid for.

I purchased this product at the Shreveport, LA. location last weekend and have been wearing them everyday.
Good stiff soles, and firm fit. The only thing I have a problem with is the loop design, will the plastic and brads hold up over time. Time will tell if the brad and loop design will last. The price was reasonable, but if they don't preform they will be history. I think North Face has good products, but this said it is my first venture with them. So, for what it's worth get tought and take a chance. Everybody has an opinion, try them on for size and make your own!
