The North Face Hedgehog Guide GTX (2013)

The new-look Hedgehogs are lightweight and sporty-looking shoes which feel great to walk in. Sizing is a bit small so try before you buy, but an excellent lacing system ensures they’ll suit a variety of foot shapes. The mesh uppers are soft and flexible, yet the midsole is stiff enough to cope with gnarly terrain, so they feel great on rocky trails in warm weather. Shock absorption is fantastic, and a nice rolling action in the sole gives a real spring to your step. The uppers are seamless and very breathable, with synthetic leather panels for support and durability, and they have a Gore-Tex waterproof lining too. Multi-directional cleats give really good grip, especially on dry trails.
