Trail runners rejoice. The North Face Men's Ultra Trail Running Shoe gives you a grit-guzzling shoe with cushioning, lots of flexibility, and a sleek, streamlined silhouette. Truly a running shoe at heart, the Ultra steps it up a few notches in terms of durability, breathability, and sheer toughness so you can take your fleet-footed action to the trails.
The one-two punch of Ultra Airmesh and FlashDry Fibers help the upper manage foot moisture and dry quickly to reduce the chances of chafing. Synthetic overlays lack seams to further minimize hot spots while offering a smidgeon of support. The perforated EVA insole continues to manage moisture at the same time it provides some cushioning.Cradle Guide technology tweaks the midsole specifically to support trail running efforts. The Pebax heel cradle stabilizes your heel strike so variable terrain isn't a guaranteed sprain. Two layers of EVA absorb impact forces for a soft ride that also bounces back to keep you spritely on the trail. An 8mm heel-forefoot offset accommodates both heel-strikes and midfoot-favoring runners so runners of all gaits will be happy romping through the woods. The Vibram trail-specific outsole has flex grooves in addition to robust lugging for traction both up and down steep mountainside slopes.
