Fantastic feel and fit. Wore quickly

Beaker Chambersburg, PA September 11, 2017
They were very comfortable and I want another pair but they did wear out quickly. I have had them for 9 months and the right sole is coming off and the left foot has a couple of tears or cut marks. In TNF defense I may have just worn them out.

Comfortable, Stylish

Performance Fail

ExploreMore Southern California July 05, 2017
I really could have loved these shoes. If the right shoe performed as the left shoe this would be a 5-Star rating. However, the right shoe took on water leaving me with a sodden sock and wet, cold foot. My qustion to TNF is how this problem could happen. I purchased the Ultra 109GTX for some upcoming trips. I noticed some wetness while hiking in minor exposure to water but didn't feel it was enough to make an evaluation. Then, hiking through Iceland and England I faced very wet conditions. Using full gaters and rain pants the left shoe performed extremely well. Aside from usual dampness due to sweating, my left foot was dry even after days of rain soaked ground and rain. The right shoe, however, took on water very soon to being exposed to rain or wet grounds mainly from the front one-third of the shoe. Water seemed to be getting through the sides of the toe area and the top of the toe area. When I took off my shoes my left sock was relatively dry. My right sock was heavy with water right at the front third. Since one shoe performed so well I can only guess that either the Gortex was defective or some manufacturing defect allowed water to enter the shoe. As this shoe did not perform as designed I can not rate it anything more than one star. I purchased it from a reputable local outdoor retailer who I know will make things right but I am very dissapointed. I would like to replace them with another pair of Ultra109's but wonder if the same thing would happen.
Pros:
Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Cushioning, Durable, Rugged

Very poorly made, not for serious outdoor use

Adam Boston MA May 29, 2017
This is the second pair of north face shoes I have owned, the first pair were terrible quality and fell apart very quickly. I only gave them a second chance because I had vouchers to spend after returning a jacket of their's which also fell apart (that's a whole other story). After roughly 80 miles of use, mostly on trails which they are allegedly designed for, true to form these are falling apart. The zigzag trim on the inside of the foot started to peel off after a few weeks use but as it was cosmetic I ignored it and continued to use them then, whilst half way up a mountain trail, I felt something catch on a rock and on closer inspection all of the red sections of the sole were starting to peel. I'm only glad I was doing a simple 20 mile hike on well maintained trails. If this had happened somewhere really wild I could have been in real trouble. I tried to return them at a north face shop and now I have to wait 4 to 6 weeks for them to look at them and potentially refund my money. The supervisor was being difficult because they "looked well used"the reason they looked well used is they are supposedly for trail running and trails tend to be muddy in my experience. it also might have been because they were falling apart and looked liked they'd had years of use. I'm going back to using my old Brooks trail running shoes which have well over 1000 miles on them and are still going strong. This experience has left me with the opinion that North face are no longer capable of producing anything of any quality and have become a company who merely make outdoorsy styled fashion clothing for people who rarely if ever get more than a few miles out of the city.

Third pair of the Ultra 109s

mike chicago May 18, 2017
This is my third pair of the 109s - I wear them 200 days a year, and they last about two years. I use them for commuting - to the office, walking, light hiking, light activity. They are 100% waterproof (amazing!) I will replace my current pair with another 109, or with another, better NF shoe with the same last. Also, very surprised at the people who said the shoes were uncomfortable - these shoes felt the same from the first wear - so, if they don't feel comfortable in the store, don't buy them.

Looks good, waterproofing is great, incredibly uncomfortable

Mike in AZ Scottsdale, AZ April 17, 2017
I have had these shoes for over a year now, and wear them once or twice per week for hiking and rock climbing. They look great. The waterproofing is outstanding. I have gone hiking in very wet and muddy conditions, and they keep my feet dry. They have been very durable considering the amount of strenuous hiking I have done over the past year throughout the Southwest and Appalachians. The cushioning is very good for hiking shoes. However, they are extremely narrow around the ball of the foot and the toes. My toes are always bruised and in a great deal of pain after each hike (usually 6-10 hours). I got them a half size larger than my foot size, and the salesperson told me that they would be more comfortable after they were broken in, but that has not occurred. I can't wait until I can afford another pair of hiking shoes, and I will definitely not be buying these again.
Pros:
Good Cushioning, Durable
Cons:
Narrow / Tight

Mixed Terrain, All Weather Conditions, Wet / Rain

Great Comfort and Amazing Waterproofing

AG North Carolina March 31, 2017
I have owned 5 pairs of the Merrell Moab WP shoes and 2 pairs of Soloman WP shoes, but I always had the same problem with both brands; after 5-6 months of continuous wear the soles would fall apart and waterproofing failed. I bought this shoe on a whim and The North Face has quickly won me over. Owned the Ultra 109 GTX shoe for close to 1.5 years, before I started to see the sole come apart and the material tear, BUT they continue to stay waterproof. I wear the shoe on a daily basis and because I farm, they are constantly exposed or submerged in chemicals and nitrogen that cause most materials to break down. Their unique waterproof liner prevents the waterproofing from failing or holding water in the fabric, unlike any other shoe from competitors. Best shoe I have ever bought and won't hesitate to purchase again in the future.
Pros:
Comfortable, Great Traction, Durable, Waterproofing, Rugged
Cons:
none
Bottom Line:
Work, All Weather Conditions, Wet / Rain

All form and poor function

Woods jogger NJ February 26, 2017
I tried to use it, to break it in but it is simply too uncomfortable to put on even that I have set it aside, afraid to use given how tight and how it slows your stride. It feels like you are dragging something with your feet. I am a size 9 but this 9 is way too tight and way too narrow. It makes the shoe look odd on my feet given how it hugs your feet and is tiresome wearing it. I have other pairs from other brands but reading all the reviews, I ordered one, liking its look and rugged features, especially the sole. It did get appreciation from co-workers but only the wearer knows where the shoe bites. I think that this shoe was designed more as a fashion statement than actually being what it is made for - comfort in rugged use. All shoes must be made for comfort, a pro which should be at the base of the feature pyramid, but when the base itself is flawed the rest of the features are hardly anything to go by. I have to return it most likely but am not sure if returns will be accepted if used a few times. Will not recommend this shoe if your feet are slight wider (not even full wide but just a tad wider). The laces came as is a threadbare pair was laced on to the shoe. If you plan to use it (with caution), please loosen the laces completely. I am sorry this did not workout for me and it really one of the worst purchases I've made, an expensive one at that!

My Favorite Gear is The North Face

Bill Clearwater December 27, 2016
I owned two pair of TNF Prophecy shoes that lasted forever and felt like they were made for my feet. When I couldn't find them anymore I despaired because I couldn't imagine finding another pair that fit me so good. I bought the ultra 109's and love them just as much. I can't describe how much I love TNF stuff I have. My favorite jacket of all time is the Denali and the shoes are superb. I wish they made work boots.

Abhishek Kirkland, WA August 15, 2016

Bruising ankle bone.

Herbhikes Florida July 06, 2016
Tried these on in house and walked around, no problem. Took them out for a run to break them in and found a pressure point causing a tiny bruise on bottom ankle bone. Very disappointed. There is a bump you can feel running your finger along the top, about an inch behind last eyelet. So I'm going to say poor design, the part that comes to close to the ankle bone should be soft or not come at all close to the bone. Now that I have studied the area it is very hard.

DJKong Tampa, FL May 12, 2016

Major design flaw in an otherwise comfortable hiking shoe

Cerbantesq Salt Lake City, UT May 11, 2016
These Gore Tex hiking shoes were very comfortable and the waterproof membrane performed well, initially. Unfortunately, the rigid rubber toe-cap is positioned at the flex point which causes the toe-cap to rub against the exterior membrane. Eventually, a hole will appear in the Gore Tex membrane and the shoe is no longer waterproof. Fortunately, TNF accepted my warranty return and I'm looking for a similar waterproof hiking shoe to replace this very comfortable pair I enjoyed until a few weeks ago.

Comfortable

Poor Quality, Wears Quickly

These shoes are not well made or durable

John in Colorado Denver, CO January 30, 2016
I initially purchased these shoes to replace a pair of waterproof Vasque shoes, more for variety than anything else. I wore them regularly around town, traveling, and for light hiking. In under a year, they fell apart to the point that I had to get rid of them. The material on the sides by the toes degraded to the point that they were no longer waterproof and the inside lining pulled away by the heel. Now, I'm going back to my Vasque Scree shoes. They may not offer variety, but they are durable!

Bad Design Flaw

Holes in my shoes Europe June 03, 2015
I like The North Face shoes and I still do, but I do not like how these were designed. I had the Headgehog GTX XCR III Hiking Shoes my entire year in Europe and they lasted. I bought the ULTRA 109 while I was home in USA to replace them as they are comfortable and look good. Now I'm in Europe again and discovering what is wrong with the ULTRA 109. THE BIG PROBLEM That beautiful toe cap is shaped like a blade and while bending the foot during normal walking, it cuts right into the material of the shoe. This leaves nice holes in your shoes. Mine didn't even start to look old before I noticed the holes, and had thought I had done it somehow. But unfortunately these shoes destroy themselves and it is unavoidable. Not too good a feature for water resistance either. I would have bought a different shoe for my trip to Europe if I knew these would do this.

Ultra High Performance Shoe for STRONG Feet

GKK San Francisco May 18, 2015
The added performance that these shoes can take is worth the extra weight, and extra Mile, but is not really that much, considering that I broke into them in a couple of weeks. I had medium to severe plantar fasciitis caused primarily for wearing shoes too soft; at first would feel great, but it took its toll eventually. I recommended these shoes to co-workers, I'm very enthusiastic that they'll thank me for it.

Was in to buy new boots as my old ones wore out and saw these and liked the look. I couldn't be more than happy with the feel, comfort and performance on the ice and snow. Mine did have a defect where the outer sole separated, but the sales rep I came back to helped me out and I got a new pair in less than a week as they had none in stock. Definitely worth the price and would buy them again.

Great so far...

rkh Halifax, NS April 06, 2015
Runs slightly small, so be sure to try them on, even if you've had North Face shoes before. I went up 1/2 size compared to my hedgehogs. Surprising stability for a runner. Just got them, so I can't report on their durability, but a couple of things I'll be watching are the tread wear, and how the plastic/vinyl toe cap fares. It seems to be tough, and looks like it will last, but I suspect it may look unsightly as scuffs collect on the smooth surface. Time will tell. Very happy with them so far.

Bought these to replace an aging pair of North Face shoes that my husband LOVED! He wears a 13 and typically needs a wide in other brands but these fit his big feet well. He wears them to walk the dog, to work, out running errands, etc. The additional protection that the Gore Tex provides is a huge perk as a typical day may entail messy conditions on job sites. I personally think they are nice looking shoes as well and I do not have to cringe when he gets them out of the closet. Well done, TNF. Two thumbs up!

Comfortable shoe

RichardS Queens, NY November 01, 2014
I bought these to replace my old worn out Hedgehog lows. I must admit I wasn't to sure about buying these because I never wore anything other then the Hedgehogs. After buying a pair I really like the feel, it's not too hard on my feet has lots of traction and is water proof. As an IT professional who's always on his feet or moving around getting equipment or removing equipment from different buildings I need something tough& comfortable. The 109 GTX fit the bill. I would be buying another pair as backup. Nothing really compares to TNF shoe once it feels good on your feet.

Awesome Trail Shoe

AsbestosEater Hudson Valley, NY October 11, 2014
After much research, I selected the Ultra 109 GTX. This is my first pair of North Face shoes. Wow! The fit was perfect. The sizing runs about a 1/4" small. Size 11 was perfect for my 10-3/4 foot. I run trails, hike, and treadmill in these shoes. I've owned the shoes for 2 weeks and I've already logged 40+ hours in them. They felt great the first time out on a rocky trail in Glacier National Park. I'm very satisfied with the comfort, feel and overall look of the shoe. I'm now ordering a second pair to throw on the shelf as a replacement for when I wear out the initial pair.

North Face Gore Tex sneakers

osborn2ski wilmington delaware August 06, 2014
This is the third pair of North Face sneakers. I do a lot of Rails to Trails and I use toe Clips so that I can use sneakers. I love that they are some what water Prof and keep my feet dry. I do mostly unpaved trails and they work well for me. One they are comfortable. Two they are light weight and three are water resistant. Oh by the way I never give out five stars on any type of review.

Super comfortable and sturdy all-purpose shoe

BigheadYoda Washington, D.C. August 06, 2014
I'm on my second pair of these excellent trail running shoes. I wear them everywhere, including during the commute to the office (where I reluctantly swap them for work shoes). They're lightweight but provide excellent support and stability for navigating rocks and tree roots on and off the trail. Highly recommend them. They run just a tad on the small size, so I get one half size larger.

MEN??S ULTRA 109 GTX -- Unwanted Weight Gain

UncleBob Undisclosed July 31, 2014
I have owned four pairs of Ultra 105s, and have loved them for day hikes and daily wear. When NF discontinued the 105s, the only logical thing to do was to get a pair of 109s. I was surprised to discover that the 109s felt much heavier on my feet. So, I weighed them and my old pair of 105s and discovered that the new 109s are a pound heavier...1/2 pound heavier per shoe! Yes, the new shoes are very comfortable, fit well, and provide great support. But I'm not happy lugging around another pound of unwanted and, in my opinion, un-needed weight. North Face should reconsider the description of 109s as being "performance/running" shoes.

109 GTX Amazeballs!

DanH Ottawa, Ontario, Canada April 17, 2014
As a great fan of my 105 GTX's (BEST 'out of the box' shoes I've ever worn!!) I've been searching for a worthy replacement. With a torn meniscus, overpronating and some on-again off-again plantar fasciitis, these shoes have come to the rescue. My old 105's can't be worn at work so I needed something to cover off my work day. Crazy comfortable, very supportive but not so much that you foot is doing contortions. I'll be ordering another pair tomorrow, maybe 2....One thing; the picture shows the forefoot as a lighter grey, when in fact it's a much darker grey blue.

Reflective, Toe Box Wide / Big, Waterproof

MEN??S ULTRA 109 GTX are awesome

TreyB Seattle, WA April 17, 2014
These are an excellent pair of shoes whether walking in the rain (I live in Seattle so these see a LOT of rain), on hard surfaces, or off-road. They are very comfortable, well-made, and have a lot of support. The tread is excellent for wet surfaces or walking on lots of rocks. After a few weeks of wearing these almost every day there is a tiny bit of normal wear on the front top rubber part of the shoe (totally normal looking for this type of shoe) but otherwise every part of this show still looks brand new.

Go-to-shoes

nolayat Idaho April 11, 2014
I really like these shoes. Have tested them in wet grass running and they were great. Stayed dry inside. Very comfortable and supportive. I like the black color with the design that keeps it from looking like a "security guard shoe". (Nothing against security guards! ) I am a female with a long slim foot and very little instep. The fit is good for me. Although a female shoe would probably fit even better and be a bit more feminine. I WISH TNF would make women's shoes up to size 13. Hint! Hint! Please!!! :) Women's shoes tend to just look more "feminine" and fit more ideally. These shoes are a men's 11 and I generally wear a 12 1/2 womens. All this said, I am very thankful to have these. I would gladly recommend them.

Braz Undisclosed April 08, 2014
Very comfortable shoes, and well made. These by far have exceeded my expectations. I used to wear Nike Shox and these beat them hands down as far as comfort and durability. Shipping was also ridiculously fast. I will continue to by North Face products. The quality is far better than anything else I've tried.

Durable Goods!

VNSA Boston MASS April 01, 2014
After five years of wear & tear I had to finely put my Hedgehogs out to pasture. God I loved those shoes. I was so disappointed to find out NorthFace is phasing the line out and couldn't find my size. So with a leap of faith, I purchased the ULTRA 109 GXTs in black. It's a light, good looking shoe that looks like it can stand the test of time. I have only had them a week but they are a pleasure to wear. As for the durability from feet that can eat shoes for breakfast, ask me in five years.

second pair of Ultra 109 GTX's

BRay Virginia March 18, 2014
These are absolutely fantastic shoes. I took my first pair all over the Middle East and they were comfortable, breathable, sturdy, and most importantly to me, waterproof. What sold me on the 109s are that they have a sturdy construction but aren't as clunky as a pure hiking boot. They're fairly light but provide a surprisingly amount of support for technically being a trail runner. Good for the snow, mud, or around town, this is one of the most versatile and stylish pair of North Face shoes I've purchased. A word of note, these ran smaller than my Back to Berkeleys. I wear a 13 in my Berkeleys but am between a 12 and a 12.5 in the 109s.

men's ultra 109 gtx

mannypap new hampshire March 02, 2014
I was looking for a comfortable and supportive trail walking shoe- I tried Columbia and Timberland and they just didn't feel right. These 109's felt good walking in the house but I was looking forward to using them on a hike. WOW are these shoes great. Living in New Hampshire we have the White Mountains and I tried them there and was very impressed. All the trails still have snow but these shoes were so grippy, slipping was never a concern. Also the Gore Tex really works- your shoe is soaked but your sock is dry- amazing. Plus they look great with a pair of jeans for a night out. I don't think you'lle go wrong with these trail shoes; it will probably be the best decision you've made in a long time.Thanks North Face.

Fantastic all around shoe

rockhopper1 Undisclosed December 31, 2013
I recently purchased a pair on a recommendation from an avid hiker. After the purchase, I wore them around the office for a few weeks and to be honest, they were more comfortable than most of my so-called "comfort work shoes" and even as comfortable as my running shoes. Just last week, I took them to Old Rag and some fairly austere trails in the Shenandoah mountains and they performed flawlessly in all weather conditions. Snow, rain, ice all proved no match for these shoes. Even the rocks and sketchy places around a few rivers and creek beds were easily handled with little to no slippage. If TNF continues to make this shoe, I will continue to wear them.

breathable, warm, Waterproof, Awesome

Outstanding, Great, Fantastic

CavDog Williamsburg,Virginia December 05, 2013
My friends were bragging on the Untra 106 Gtx shoes, I've worn Merrell Shoe's for the past seven years and was reluctant to give them up. My friend said look buy a pair and if you don't like them I will buy your next pair of Merrell's. So to keep it short, I still have the Ultra 106 GTX shoes and I'm sure the title sums it up.

Great Shoes For My Plantar Fasciitis

Grendl Woodlands of the Midwest July 15, 2013
