The North Face Men's Sentinel Boa Trail Running Shoe
Tighten or loosen your shoes with a twist of a knob in these lightweight Men's Sentinel Boa Trail Running Shoes from The North Face. The Boa lacing system utilizes lightweight aircraft-grade wires to adjust the fit. The low-profile Boa lacing system knob located on the heel can be quickly and easily refined in increments to optimize the fit, especially if you find that your feet start to swell after a couple of miles of running. The North Face designed the Men's Sentinel Boa Trail Running Shoe to support medium-arched pronators on a varied range of wet and dry running surfaces. These shoes are also a comfortable favorite for travelers--especially those who have to quickly remove their footwear at airport security checkpoints. Keep in mind that the ultrATAC all-terrain carbon rubber outsole on The North Face Men's Sentinel Boa Trail Running Shoe is optimized for trail running, so it is a slightly softer sole compound than some running shoes and sneakers designed for asphalt and concrete. Extensive running on unyielding and abrasive surfaces may result faster wear along the bottoms of the soles.

Mens Sentinel Boa Trail Running Shoe
This is a great shoe. Not only because it's so light but because you can tighten or loosen the sting system by a quick turn of a button. This is INGENIOUS!!! As well as being very functional. I first saw these shoes when I vacationed in Texas. While there, I was at a car window repair shop and sitting in the lobby was a gentleman that had a pair of these shoes on. He was a veteran and had been wounded in Iraq. He said that the wounded servicemen were given these shoes when they started their rehabilitation. He demonstrated how they worked and I've wanted a pair ever since. I have M.S. so tying and untying my shoes is problematic. I hope you never completely do away with these shoes.

North Face Sentinel Boa
I own an earlier design of this shoe. I have been looking for this discontinued style and found some here. A very comfortable, lightweight shoe. I like the simplicity of the design and ease of use. I recently had knee surgery and it was very easy to put on, tighten and remove shoes as opposed to bending over for a sustained time to tie. I hope NF resurrects this great style!

Great Boa system and Great Service
North Face Boa Trail Running Shoes are just the greatest most comfortable running shoe I've ever experienced. Hands down these have the materials that make great foot care. Most of my past names have rubbed my raw in one spot or another in long distances, these do not. Try a pair and try a winner especially when purchased from an outfit like Altrec whom made the purchase process simple, fast and prompt, The price seemed steep for these shoes but balanced with the results they were a bargain.

Great Running Shoe
This is a great outdoor running shoe! The BOA lacing system works really well with the ability to make split second quick changes on the run. I hope that North Face will continue the BOA system in their future running shoes! Also, this shoe is very easy to break in with very little impact before longer runs!
