When you're pushing for long miles regardless of the weather, The North Face's Vals Mid Waterproof Hiking Shoe is the shoe you want leading the way. It's got a waterproof and breathable HydroSeal membrane that'll keep your feet dry even through downpouring skies and running river crossings, while TNF's new EXTS outsole system delivers high-performance levels of traction on both wet and dry trail surfaces. A cushioned EVA midsole delivers soft underfoot cushioning that'll help keep your feet comfortable over long miles, while the supportive and stabilizing heel cradle helps you take on even the most rugged and technical trails.

Just got these, so can't speak to durability yet, but these boots are super comfortable right out of the box and look really good. They are very breathable for waterproof boots.
I usually wear a 10.5 in hiking boots but had to size up to an 11 for these. The 11 fits perfectly.
I'll update once I have some time to put some more miles on these!
