The North Face Men's Hedgehog Fastpack GTX Hiking Shoe is surprisingly light for how protective it is. Gore Tex gives the Hedgehog waterproof, breathable protection, and PU coated leather keeps the upper strong while mesh ensures breathability and reinforcements add durability. The Hedgehog Fastpack GTX also features The North Face's Cradle Guide midsole for soft impact absorption and a firmer toe off at each step. Cradle also includes a full length EVA midsole for cush and a TPU shank for heel stability. Underneath, Vibram rubber keeps the sole grippy and durable.
