 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

North Face Ultra Guide

 

RELEASE DATE:

  • November 2012

 

The Northface Ultra Guide is a lightweight trail trainer which features an increasing amount of firmer foam under the inner edge of the shoe to smoothly control pronation.    The shoe outsole features a V-shaped lug pattern that is capable of gripping tight on the most varied terrain.   There is a plastic plate in the forefoot area which shields your foot from rock debris, but is thin enough too feel cushioned and flexible.

Northface products are designed specifically to be very lightweight, minimalist and adaptable.   This give runners the freedom and confidence to run hard through any terrain and over any obstacle. The aim of their footwear is to keep the foot close to the ground so that runners can feel and adapt to the different terrains beneath them. Northface offers a wide range of soles and cushioning models for each and every type of trail runner.

You can train and race on the trails with the Northface Ultra Guide trail running shoe.   This shoe has a lightweight and nimble feel that will keep you going fast and keep you low to the ground.   A well designed V-shaped rubber outsole provides an excellent grip on any dry and rocky terrain.
This shoe weighs 9.7 oz and has a 8 mm heel-to-toe drop.   I really like this shoe since it provides my underfeet with good amount of cushioned protection.   The shoe has good traction making it safer to run on varied terrains.

These shoes felt good for mid to long trail training runs. These were a good option for making a translational shoe in moving from a normal trail shoe to a more minimalist trail shoe.
