The North Face Women's Ultra Fastpack Hiking Shoe gives you the comfort, grip, and protection needed to trek craggy trails and scramble across boulder strewn mountainsides. This lightweight shoe uses Ultra Airmesh to promote breathability in stifling temperatures. Moisture wicking performance comes courtesy of FlashDry collar lining for sweat and blister free hiking. Providing rugged durability, a reinforced toe cap brings protection from stubs. The Pebax shank gives lightweight arch support and rebound, and the flexible, yet rigid Snake Plate reinforces the shoe's bottom, shielding your foot from jagged rocks. Soaking up shocks and bumps along the trail, the injection molded EVA midsole cushions your feet on strenuous hikes. Cradle heel stabilization technology facilitates proper stride alignment, and the Vibram outsole grips onto rough trails and slippery surfaces.
