Newest in the line of North Face, the North Face Ultra Smooth is one of North Face’s only shoes designed for you to hit the pavement as well as smoother trail surfaces!
The Ultra Smooth is a neutral lightweight trainer (7.7 oz women’s size 7) For those that like a more minimal feel, this will fit the bill with its 8 mm heel-to-toe drop. North Face certainly didn’t sacrifice durability with this lighter weight shoe, the rubber outsole is composed of Vibram rubber in the higher wear areas. Not only that, but North Face placed a Pebax plate within the sole to give shoe outstanding energy return.
The upper, which fits like glove and is devoid of seams, is super breathable and employs North Face’s FlashDry technology to wick away sweat and keep the feet cooler on those warmer runs.
So what if this shoe has a name that sounds more like an aftershave. Give it a try if you’re a fan of the Brooks Pure Line, the Saucony Kinvara, or adidas Energy Boost.
