I ordered this in 8.5 & I normally wear an 8.5 leaning towards wide walking/athletic shoe. Feels a little roomy in the toe even with good hiking socks, but the 8 would be too short. I was a little afraid of the rugged appearance of the sole, but they don't look huge & aren't heavy. Very pleased with... Read More
Reviewed by winsumwalker from New Hampshire on Monday, April 22, 2013This is a well made and sturdy shoe that is appropriate for walking, hiking, some casual use, and in my case for work. It takes a few days to break it in as it is a bit stiffer than most asolo shoes. I don't recommend it for a long hike if you are wearing it for the first time.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by A.D. from mid-atlantic on Tuesday, February 5, 2013These are good-looking shoes, but VERY uncomfortable. I assumed they would break in and soften a bit, but after two weeks of daily wear, my feet still hurt by the end of the work day. Although it wasn't possible the first week, I've been able to add a Dr Scholl's insole, which has helped a bit.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by June from Philadelphia, PA on Monday, January 28, 2013I'm not a climber; I use these for urban hiking and for all daily walking where I don't need dressier shoes. These are all a single nice, neutral color and they have a streamlined shape -- so they look like a quality casual shoe, rather than a hiking shoe. Appropriate for many casual situations. Perfect fit and took less than a day to break in. My last three pairs of walking shoes have been Asolo shoes from Sierra Trading Post, and I haven't gone wrong yet.
Reviewed by Wilderness guide. from Ohio, Alaska on Monday, December 26, 2011I work in Alaska. I work 13 and 14 hour days. These are the best. I have owned five pair and can't wait until they get them in my size again. I look every day. The only reason I have owned so many pair is I wear them constantly. Being in Alaska I walk on rocks all the time and I am pretty rough on them. I get a full year of full time use out of them and then I treat myself to another pair. I need another pair now because I left two pair in storage in Alaska and thought I would get some when I got home. Can't find my size. I will buy three pair when I can get them again. They run a whole size large for me. They are also on the narrow side but that is good for me. I can't say enough. I just love them.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by snowgirl from New Hampshire on Wednesday, June 29, 2011I generally like Asolo products but this one just didn't do anything. Even though it was my reg size, it just wasn't comfortable. I couldn't picture being in them all day and being happy. I returned them.
