The right pair of shoes makes all the difference when getting outside and active. This is especially true of trail running, where you push your limits on demanding terrain and not always in the easiest weather conditions. The Ultra series by The North Face features their Fastpack models, designed for runners looking to devour the trails while bettering their performance.

Mix the protection of a hiking boot with the flexibility of a running shoe – this is the gambit The North Face took on when designing their Fastpack products. The secret to making it work is an ingenious minimalist construction that blends technologies best suited to the toughest mountain trails.

Bad weather is no longer a legit excuse to blow off your running session. The Fastpack GTX III come with a breathable Gore-Tex® liner that protects your feet from moisture and evacuates excess humidity. The comfort of running with dry feet, whether under a blazing sun or a torrential downpour, is unparalleled.

When you hit jagged paths snaking along the mountains, the last thing you want is your shoes weighing you down. The North Face wanted to make shoes both quick and lightweight. The three Ultra Fastpack GTX III models react to the contours of the ground beneath them and return energy with every stride.

A breathable membrane and the featherweight construction (one shoe of the low-cut Ultra Fastpack III Mid GTX weighs approx. 382 grams) make the Fastpack very comfortable, even on difficult terrain. Rugged and loaded with tech for durability, the addition of a cushioned OrthoLite footbed shows the balance between toughness and comfort.
