1 Answers | Answer Question
Question by on 5/20/2016 - 2:38 am
A:
"I would not recommend this boot for ice and snow, because it is designed for wet or rocky surface and does not have insulation. Instead, I would recommend you to take a look at these boots as they would better fit your needs: Salomon Snowtrip TS WP Boot (Men’s) or Columbia Bugaboot (Men's)."

I bought these pair of shoes for my hiking expedition to Canadian Rockies near Jasper-Whistler terrain. These shoes not only handle the tough challenge but also gave my feet comfortable relief of the weight that I was carrying. These shoes are waterproof and absorb sweat very nicely to keep your feet dry. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for affordable hiking shoes.

First I think The North Face is a trusted brand in outdoor gear and one I seek when looking for equipment and gear.

This is why I was so surprised by the absolute epic fail of the Storm Mid Waterproof boot while out for a six-day hike along the Appalachian Trail.

Previously I had used these boots in two shorter Pinhoti Trail shake-down hikes of 6 and 12 miles respectively after purchasing them our local outfitter. The boots needed to be broken in and no problems arose. The boots saved that for when I was on the much harder Appalachian trail and carrying a heavier load (~ 30# with food + water) along steeper ascents and descents.

There were three major failures in the backcountry:

1) The waterproofing gusset between the tongue and the laces dug in to both ankles that would make each step a torturous experience (Ankles swelled so much you couldn't see them);
2) The boots do not breathe – at all, causing moisture from sweat to accumulate despite wearing Wigwam socks, liners and Gold Bond powder. Problems manifested in the biggest blister I've ever had; and,
3) The tread has already started to separate from the bottom of the boot despite only hiking less than 50 miles in to them. I had just purchased them less than 3 months before the long AT hike.

The problems manifested after the first major ascent some 5 miles in to the hike (Winding Stair Gap) and then progressively got worse. Luckily 26 miles in to the hike I came across the Nantahala Outdoor Center and was able to swap out my North Face boots for a pair of similar priced competitor boots.

These boots affirmed the problems associated with the North Face Storm Mid Waterproof boots. While similarly priced none of the problems above occurred during the next 30 or so miles to Fontana Dam, our terminus point for this particular section hike.

Given the above your money is better spend on a different pair of boots.

                Needed a smaller boot for day-to-day use, rather than my usual full-size insulated waterproof winter boots. Easier to take on and off than the full-size boots. This boot feels so light, yet at the same time it feels solid. Good construction and design. Will definitely look to purchase a new pair in the future.

                            Nice hiking boot, could breathe better. Problem with squeeky left shoe like another review mentioned and 1 bootlace holder broke. Also as mentioned in another review. Bought outside of Cleveland, live in Norway. Awaiting verdict on whether or not Northface will honor the warranty.
