North Face Hedgehog GTX XCR 1st Review

I was delighted to be chosen by Fitness Footwear to review their North Face Hedgehog shoes.

I have to say though that these shoes are a small fit. I requested a size 4 because that's what I take, however, I couldn't get them on my feet. I had to return them, but that was very easy to do, and within a few days another pair  - size 5 - arrived.  So when you order a pair make sure you get a size bigger than you normally would.


These shoes are ever so comfortable. They are breathable, and waterproof too. Although I haven't tested them in the rain yet but, I have tested them in the field when scooping the pony poop! And I jumped the fence into the maize field. That was 'amazing' as I have never jumped that fence before.



I went caving but decided not to wear the shoes as they are so pretty (foil gray and popsicle pink) and I didn't want to get them dirty on their first trip out!  North Face Hedgehog GTX XCR

I haven't gone all technical (you can read the tech bits on their website) with my first review because I want to test their comfort and style.
