A Word to the Wise: Don't Ruin a Long Run the Way I Did

Get in Gear: The North Face Trail Running Shoes

If you love to run in the woods, on trails, or through the summer rain, you are going to need a serious shoe to protect your feet and keep 'em dry. This is why I'm loving these Adrenaline Gore-Tex XCR Mid trail runners made by The North Face (a name I trust).

They're extremely lightweight (the complete pair only weighs 1 lb 13 oz), and they're made of Gore-Tex XCR. This is the most durable, waterproof, breathable fabric available, so it'll really protect your feet and keep them dry.

These shoes are mid-cut, so they'll support your ankles when you're on wobbly and unstable terrain, but they're not as big and clunky as regular high-cut hiking boots. Since mountains and trails are full of sticks and sharp rocks, the reinforced toe box is a necessity to protect your feet (plus it makes these shoes last longer). The outsole is made of rubber to help you grip the ground when you're moving quickly or on slippery surfaces. These are one pair of solid, "don't mess with me" shoes!

How much are they? To find out

These trail running shoes are perfect for a day hike up a mountain or through a woodsy trail. You can order them online from for only $100, which is an awesome deal since these types of shoes are usually much more expensive.

These sound perfect. I was just looking for a pair of trail running shoes that were less clunky than hiking boots, yet supportive. And for $100? That's a bargain!

I love North Face everything else but wish the shoes fit me a bit better. It's totally me though, I have horrible feet and nearly every shoe is evil. But North Face is great.

I've gotten a new appreciation for North Face stuff lately These remind me of old Nike running shoes that I still have - same colour and everything! So of course I love them!
