Excellent water-proof walking shoes.

Had seen these in Cottswold before Christmas for £100, and hoped they would be reduced in the sales, but they are now £110 in store, and not much cheaper on Amazon.

Saw them on for £69.90 (both Male and Female) and ordered them, realised that signing up to the newsletter gets a £5 off voucher for orders over £50, so cancelled my order and re-ordered at £64.90.

Still expensive, but good quality and very comfortable shoes.

Shoe Technologies:
Gore-Tex: GORE-TEX® footwear is durably waterproof and breathable, keeping feet dry and protected, and provides outstanding climate comfort that’s ideal for a wide range of conditions and activities.

NorthFit: The mission of NorthFit™ is to scientifically provide the outdoor athlete with the most precise fit between the human foot and a footwear last, as they both relate to the demands of the specific activity for which the shoe is worn.

Snake Plate: The Snake Plate™ consists of a plate that winds back and forth in the forefoot, allowing the foot to flex in a natural manner while delivering protection and rigidity.

Northotic: Biomechanically engineered Northotic™: The North Face® has taken the conventional footbed and elevated it to a superior level with enhanced stability, support and cushioning.

Vibram: With 70 years of expertise in integrating sport-specific design with proprietary rubber, Vibram® makes rubber compounds that deliver superior grip, traction and durability.

Cradle: The North Face® CRADLE™ technology is engineered to naturally absorb impact, stabilise the foot and promote an anatomically correct stride by supporting the perimeter of the heel and ensuring the fatty tissues under the bursa are biomechanically positioned. CRADLE™ achieves the perfect balance of protection, control and comfort to inspire confidence for any foot on any terrain.

About Offroad Running Shoes
Offroad or "trail" shoes offer increased outsole traction and uppers with toe bumpers and reinforced stitching for more durability. The foot often sits slightly lower to the ground than usual for stability and responsiveness. Offroad shoes often have less cushioning than a road shoe because they're designed for softer surfaces. You should choose offroad shoes if you do a lot of off-road running and need shoes with extra traction, more durable uppers and extra protection from the terrain.

These are meant to be really good shoes but i've got a feeling it's gonna get cold in here. TNF = HUKD -0
Not sure why it's getting Cold.

41% reduction on high-street prices and not seen anything close to this price online.

If that doesn't count as a deal then Oh well!
Excellent shoes at a good price
I bought these from Cotswolds last November for £100 and they are bloody brilliant !! Keep my feet dry when it's persisting it down and keep them warm too. Extremely comfortable with a great grip in the recent snow. For this price they're an absolute bargain.
I'm not a North Face fan by a long shot, but I needed to replace my walking shoes quickly and these were the only ones in my size that my local store had in stock.

Best I've ever had, and I cover miles across country with photography gear. Might treat myself to a second pair at this price.
Did not know you could get special shoes for finding hedgehogs, cool.
