As a first time hiker, i was not in tune to what boots were the best. A friend had recommended this brand of boots. I have to say they are truely the best boots as far as comfort and ease of breaking in goes (i wore them once before going on a hike). They also kept my feet warm and dry. My feet were quite happy. They are GREAT boots!

Love everything about these boots. They do run slightly big, but for long hikes, or as in my case, working a wilderness search dog, the extra room is perfect when you feet starts to swell a bit after long hours walking.
I think these will serve you well in most aspects except the flexibility part. Asolo's have a moderately stiff sole, but it will loosen up after time and use. I think Asolo is the way to go far your needs and wants. Allow for a break in process before you take them right in to the field.

These have a nice wide toe box. I usually wear two pair of socks a thin under liner and then my hiking socks.I could wear them all day. I am 65 and have never worn such a good shoe for walking. It took me this long to realize I cannot do everything in my New Balance sneakers.

The Sand color is currently available in a size 8.5; however, the red is still unavailable in that particular size at this time.

I would order your regular size in this boot model.

I do not know whether you have made a decision on this yet, or found a suitable answer. I would have to say that there are many factors that would affect the answer to this question. Are your feet wider than the average, do you have a high arch etc. etc.?||For me personally, I wear a 7 for open shoes (sandals). However, when it comes to hiking and running, I find a 7 too small and my toes push against the front. I normally wear a size 8 for hiking and running. I can also tell you that on Asolo brands, I wear 8.5 as I find the 8 a little too narrow for me.||A good check for me is to try the shoes on and push my toes right to the front, if I can fit two fingers in behind my heel (about an inch), I know that running in the shoes won't cause me problems.

This is not necessarily true. I actually bought a half size larger and am happy with the result. However, I tend to use these boots for serious hiking only for which I also wear two pairs of performance socks.
