We've outdone ourselves with our line of VECTIV™ women's trail running shoes. Take on the trail with our performance-ready, lightweight shoes for trail runners.
High-Performance Women's Shoes
Unlike road running, trail races are won and lost on the descent. The VECTIV™ technology from The North Face has been proven to reduce downhill tibial impact, allowing runners to train longer. Without compounding impact, you'll be able to take on mile after mile with less discomfort.
The long-lasting comfort of our Women’s VECTIV™ Infinite Ltd is perfect for long-distance runners. The Women's VECTIV™ Exploris FUTURELIGHT™ are the hiking shoes you need to push for the next trail. The North Face Women's VECTIV™ Enduris FUTURELIGHT™ Reflect is great for running year-round. For runners who need high responsiveness and control, the dual-density 3D TPU plate footbed adds multi-directional stability.
Trail Running Shoes Crafted With VECTIV™ Technology
We've packed our trail running shoes and women's hiking shoes with the tech you need. The VECTIV™ rocker midsole is perfect for running further. We've designed our midsole rock plate to optimize foot-strike and combine with our 3D VECTIV™ Carbon Fiber Plate for a "fixed rocker." This adds stability and shock absorption without compromising energy efficiency, so you can push harder. On the downhill run, we've reduced impact by 10% without the loss of energy return. A moulded internal heel counter offers a women-specific adaptive fit to keep you moving and reduce the strain on your feet.
Durability For Comfort And Endurance
From The North Face VECTIV™ Enduris to the Flight VECTIV™ Guard, we've constructed our VECTIV™ shoes with comfort and endurance in mind. The breathable air-mesh upper combines with our wool socks to keep your feet from overheating on the run. Our uppers are built to resist abrasion, so you can keep going on rough trails. Midfoot support and cushioning not only help propel you forward, it also keeps you more comfortable from warm-up to cool-down. The rubber outsole offers the rugged grip 3.5-5 mm lugs of hiking boots and the lightweight surface control of athletic shoes.
Tighten up your laces, grab your training gear, and get ready for a comfortable run. Pair with running tights and gaiters for extra protection on muddy trails.
