I am a fan of Asolo shoes. The last pair I bought lasted many years. This pair is quite different. The toe is not as rounded. I has a slight incline to it. I have placed an orthotic in the shoe and find it works well for me if I am walking on pavement for 30 to 40 min. As for hiking, I like the fact that it has a flexible sole, but the hiking experience was another story. I believe the burning sensation on the ball of the foot is due to the orthotic and my feet and not the shoe. I am also experimenting with different kinds of socks and haven't found the right material or combination of materials. The shoes are great as casual shoes for running around town, doing errands etc., so they will be put to good use. I still look forward to using them for hiking, once I get the right sock/orthotic/shoes combination. I very much like the way the heel hugs the back of my foot as well.

In the picture these look like my Asolo Transits, which I love, but they are not even close. These are trail runners, not hiking shoes; the sole is much too flexible and soft and the shoes would not be good on rocky terrain. I ordered the same size as the Transits but they seemed a little short as well. They are going back. I'd recommend them to a friend if she specifically wanted a trail runner, but not if she wanted a good stiff hiking shoe.

I found the sizing completely incorrect. I ordered a size 8 only to find in UK and EU sizing it did not correlate. It is incredibly frustrating! The website does not offer any other options to ensure the correct sizing is ordered, ie maybe putting the other options of UK and EU sizings or even cm would make it easier!
I'm sure this would have been a great shoe if it fitted!!
