Push for the summit with the extraordinarily light, yet rugged design of The North Face Women’s Ultra Fastpack II GTX Hiking Shoe. Designed to keep your feet blissfully comfortable across rough trails and rock-strewn terrain, the Ultra Fastpack II GTX features TNF’s Cradle Guide technology for a supportive, stable feel underfoot. This technology uses dual-density EVA cushioning for a fluid transition throughout your entire gait. Higher levels of heel cushioning smooth out initial impact along the heel, which is prone to suffering on long-distance treks, especially when you’re burdened with a heavy pack or descending long, steep alpine routes.
Keeping passing showers and shallow stream crossings from soaking your feet, the Gore-Tex membrane offers exceptional waterproof protection and breathability. The lightweight welded upper shaves precious weight off these hiking shoes, without sacrificing durability where it matters most. Case in point, the rubberized toe cap reinforces the front against abrasive terrain and accidental toe stubs. Another cool feature is the addition of cable reinforcement along the midfoot, which increases support and stability on demanding terrain. And because it’s designed for rugged environments, the Vibram Megagrip sole provides tenacious traction across rock outcroppings and craggy deserts alike.
