The North Face Hedgehog GTX XCR III 2011

The The North Face Hedgehog GTX XCR III weighs 1052g (pair, size 11); Gore-Tex XCR waterproof lining; mesh upper for max breathability; protection around upper; good sole stiffness; aggressive lug pattern; good cushioning. But mesh upper extends low so this area may suffer in terms of durability; toe box area is not as protective as some.

The The North Face Hedgehog GTX XCR III is a good general sportily styled shoe for all-round use.
