I like the feel of these boots. They seem to have much more structure than my last pair. I also like the toe piece for durability. They seem comfortable but I haven't had a chance to take them out yet. I had to exchange for my true shoe size because I found the next half size up was too large. I usually go up half a size for boot but not with these. Looking forward to using them on Whitney next year!

I bought these to replace an old pair of day hikers after a tough, rocky weekend hike left me in pain for days afterward. I haven't been hiking in these yet, but I've been wearing them around town. So far, I am very pleased. They are very sturdy, well-made boots, solid, but not too heavy. I usually wear a women's size 11 in regular shoes, and generally don't have any extra space. I have narrow feet and high insteps. My old hikers in a size 11 barely had room for a thin sock, and my toes hit the fronts on the downhill. These are much roomier. I can easily fit a thick sock and still have room to wiggle my toes. My toes don't touch the fronts going downhill. The toe box is both tall and wide, so I imagine these would be fine for wide feet. If you typically buy your shoes to fit without much extra room, buy your regular size in these boots. If you usually have a little extra space in your shoes, you might want to go down a half size, since these definitely run a little big.

I do not find these boots to be on the large size as stated. I'm still breaking them in and hoping they are not too small. The toe box seems smaller than my previous pair. My previous pair of Asolo boots (lower end) did not hold up but were very comfortable. The soles of that boot wore through after one hike (30 day strenuous) which I thought was substandard quality. The soles look more substantial on these boots but time will tell.
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.
