I normally buy north face products as a necessity for work since I work outdoors 180 plus days a year in hot weather and freezing weather as a forestry surveyor. The lightest north face shoe I wear is the gore tex hedge hog trail runner as a necessity because of harsh wet terrain, but I was looking for a nice every day summer/hot weather trainer and I found the ultra kilowatt trainer to be a perfect shoe for every day use. I live in El Paso Tx and Chicago both have nasty summer s chicago is hot and humid and El Paso is just plain hot. These shoe are very breathable lightweight and comfortable, I train 4 time a week and this is only shoe I need at the gym but this shoe goes beyond the gym this shoe looks good is comfortable and very well ventilated, this is all I wear lately I had a chance to put these though some boulder hopping and craig climbing at Hueco Tanks this weekend and they were just flawless. The shoe kept my feet cool and dry. I highly recommend this shoe for training and hot weather and light hiking.

I purchased the Ultra Kilowatt gray/zinnia size 10 on July 20th, received them July 25th and started wearing them the next day. Thought I had found the perfect shoe for light hikes...but after about 10 treks I noticed the fabric was starting to tear where it meets the rubber toe guard. Very disappointed in this product. Never have I had a shoe fall apart after 10 wearings. Unexceptionable North Face.

      I own a fitness gym. I would have never given these shoes a second look, that is until I went to a running expo and put them on my feet! I wanted the demo model! I went in the very next day and bought my first pair! I will never change the type of shoe I wear! I am 100% sold!!!!!

          Great shoe. I have had them for a couple weeks now. They are my first pair of minimal shoes. If you have never worn minimal shoes before give yourself a couple days to get used to them. Once I did I love these shoes. They grip the trail like glue with the sturdy vibram sole, but feel as light sat flip flops.

            These are great approach shoes with a wide toe box. They are great for workouts too. They have good rock protection are light and grippy. My only complaint would be the heel was a bit uncomfortable the first several times I used the shoe but they broke in afterwards.
            I got these shoes for free as part of a north face ambassador program.

              I loved these shoes for cross-training but, like many others, experienced premature wear on the front of the shoe - with the mesh separating and tearing. I brought them back for a new paid, but I don't understand why TNF continues to sell these shoes on the site. The store employee I spoke with described these shoes as problematic.

                  I generally use these shoes on weekly runs in my backyard, aka the Wasatch Mountains. So far, these shoes have withstood the punishment I typically put my gear through. They are extremely light and at times i feel like im walkin on a cloud. However, despite their comfortable and delicate nature, they perform well in the tougjest terrain. I give them two thumbs up and recommend them to others.

                    The Kilowatt shoes have been my everyday shoe I wear to work for the last month or 2. It's nice having a comfortable shoe I can come home from work and keep wearing when its time to go for a run or work out. These are super comfortable and lightweight. They have held up very well the last 2 months I've been wearing them.

                      I really like these shoes. I have used them on quite a few 10 mile hikes and have had zero problems with them. They are also super comfortable so there isn't that issue of having a sore foot halfway through the hike. They have also been a great approach shoe too! #tnflocals

                      Comforable shoes that are POORLY MADE. Not durable at all, mesh tearing where it meets rubber toe guard after two months (see picture). Based on other reviews, this is common and a MAJOR product defect.

                      Have contacted NF who has promised to refund my money. NF makes great clothing, but stay away from their shoes.

                      Stick with established brands such as Nike, New Balance, Addidas, etcc

                          Similar to others, After three months the fabric was starting to tear where it meets the rubber toe guard. Very disappointed in this product. Was told that it was great for running and hiking, which was completley NOT TRUE. I've never have d a shoe fall apart after 3 months. What's worse, NF will NOT give me a cash refund, even though this is a manufacture defect. If you want shoes, stick with Nike, Addidas, New Balance, etc. Avoid NF
