Entry Description

In Spring 2021, The North Face will introduce its next daring innovation – VECTIV™. The technology will debut this January with the launch of the Flight VECTIV™ – a trail running shoe designed to maximize energy on the trail by reducing tibial impact and converting downward force into forward momentum. After two years of R&D, our athlete team has logged more than 6,000 miles in the Flight VECTIV™ to help develop and refine this revolutionary soling architecture that features carbon plate technology and delivers superior stability, forward propulsion and incredible grip to reduce fatigue.
