This 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.

These 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.

I'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.

I 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.

I 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.

I am not a climber--not even a little. I am a teacher who is on my feet all day long. These shoes offer just the support I need to not have sore feet or knees when I get home. I am so please with them! NOTE- these shoes are between tan and brown..they are not the mustard color you see. I was a little disappointed until I wore them the first day. Now I don't care what color they are!!!

Cons: Not the color shown

I had to return these shoes for two reasons. The first was they were at least a full size larger than what I normally wear. Second the were heavy shoes, certainly not something I could run in when necessary. Felt like cement blocks on my feet. Great if you need very strong support but no flexibility.

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 the Tobacco color, more of a pretty camel color than shown online. Worn as an alternative to tennis shoes with jeans & khakis for daily activities.
