The North Face Men's Hedgehog Mid GTX Hiking Boot offers protection for long trails, rugged backpacking trips, and varied conditions. Gore Tex gives the Hedgehog waterproof, breathable protection for year round weather, and full grain leather keeps the upper strong while mesh ensures breathability and reinforcements extend longevity. The Hedgehog Mid GTX also features The North Face's TPU Cradle heel stability technology for soft impact absorption and a firmer toe off at each step. This midsole also includes a full length TPU plate for support and EVA for cushy comfort. The scratch rubber tip protects your toes from rocks, and outriggers give the Vibram sole extra grip on all sorts of terrain.
