I originally ordered these in size 10.5, and they were a bit large for me, so I exchanged them for a size 10. They fit me perfectly. European shoe makers often make their products slightly larger (or smaller) than what we are used to here in the U.S. But Sierra is a thoughtful, consumer-friendly ven... Read More

    I love this shoe, except that it could be a bit more breathable (thus the 4 stars) overall well made and it should last along time.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Chris in NorCal from California on Saturday, October 22, 2016
    I wear a size 12 but the size in this Asolo 12 felt more like an 11. I've had 2 other pairs of Asolo and they ran true to size. The shoes felt like the typical Asolo quality and had what I had learned approach shoes to be. Stiff, sticky sole, comfortable (other than being too tight) to wear. The stiff sole doesn't bother me because I know Asolo take more than the average shoe to break in. My FSN 95 took over 20 miles wearing a 50lb backpack to break in but once they did they are the best boots I ever had.

    Awesome shoe. Great fit out out of the box, no break in period needed. Felt great from day one.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by sailorlady from az on Saturday, October 15, 2016
    Great looking shoes. Bought them for my husband's birthday. But toe box too small for him and the shoes were very uncomfortable three miles into a six mile hike. He is an 11 M. Try if you have very narrow feet.

    I had bought the boot version of this shoe 3 years ago and have enjoyed them for many miles. I put these in my cart on no less than 4 times and never ordered them. I finally did and am so I waited. They fit perfectly. Like I have had them for years. No rubbing.

    • Answer I've bought (and am wearing) the red. They are in fact red, not orange as photo shows. I'm no color theorist, but I wouldn't call them 'fire red', as the product page does, but rather a slightly duller, darker (burnt...?) red.

      (for what it's worth, I like the color)

  • Question “Is the tongue gusseted?”

    Asked on 6/27/2016 7:35:42 PM by Stevie B from California
    • Answer Yes, the tongue is gusseted.
      Answered on 6/28/2016 10:42:29 AM by Product Specialist Greg from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer Yes, the tongue is gusseted, but the gusset stops at the 6th eyelet (counting from the toe, up.
      Answered on 6/28/2016 5:07:52 PM by Hill Country Buyer from Austin, TX
    • Answer The tongue is gusseted about half way up. On my size 14's, that's about 3" gusseted and 3" not. Since they're always laced up tight for support I'm not worried about small rocks and I don't wade through streams in them so waterproofing is not an issue. They have proven to be excellent shoes for my moderate hiking and casual wear. Another question was if they're any good for climbing. I don't know but they've been fine for me on ~35 degree approaches with small loose rocks.

    • Answer Climbing, like scrambling? I would rank these like a higher quality gym shoe. For hiking and scrambles, I would get boots. These are light duty at best. That being said, they are comfortable.

  • Question “For a trail shoe like this, should there be a little extra room in the toe?”

    Asked on 11/24/2014 9:56:19 AM by RB from Missouri
    • Answer The extensive lace system seems to make the shoes infinitely adjustable. I wear mine in all types of situations and have played with the laces quite a bit to get the perfect fit, so loosening them up at the toe makes room, while tightening them up higher secures the rest of your foot nicely. I've really enjoyed these shoes.

    • Answer Not quite sure how to answer . However, size 11's almost always fit me well. These Asolos in size eleven are a perfect fit with plenty of room in the box toe, even if I wear a second pair of light duty socks.
      Answered on 11/24/2014 10:18:38 AM by Big D from Bristol CT
    • Answer I have a wide foot, especially across the ball of the foot, and find these shoes roomy enough. I take a size 9-1/2 or 10 depending one the manufacturer. On these I ordered a 9-1/2 and returned them for a 10 to get more room.

    • Answer I believe so. I ordered a half size larger then usual as most shoes and boots I wear have a boxier toe. .
      Answered on 11/24/2014 10:52:14 AM by Cosy Toes from Taos, NM
    • Answer For me, I use shoes like this while we are in camp in remote areas, holding clinic, and are not going to be doing much hiking or walking around very far. So, I usually do not use them with extremely thick socks (unless in a very cold climate). I'm usually wearing mid-weight socks, and these shoes work fine for that. If you need a shoe (as I do) where you can be versatile, then yes, you do need extra room, but of course the definition of "extra" can be different for different folks. I've used Asolo boots for well over 30 years, and have never been disappointed. The Asolo company is an old company in Romania that started many years ago by making hand-made boots for mountain use. They were so well made, and durable that eventually they became more and more popular, and the company has spread it's wings now to pretty much all over the world. These shoes are definitely good for hikes and everyday use also. Since they are light weight, they are travel friendly. I go from over 15,000 ft in the Himalayas and Andes, to the jungles of Bangladesh and Burma, and other places; these shoes are versatile enough for me. The usual test for size in packing boots, and trail shoes are when you put them on, with the socks you're usually wearing on trips/hikes, you sit down in a chair, and tap the toe of the shoe on the floor -- your toe should not hit the end of the shoe, unless you tap really hard. If your toe barely touches the toe of the shoe, that can be OK too, but don't wear the really thick socks with those shoes/boots. Hope this helps.

    • Answer My understanding is for approaches toe room is good. For basic trail, I think its a personal decision about comfort on the trail and what kind of trail hiking you do and so forth. I typically buy approach shoes because I like the feel of the approach shoes more so than most trail shoes but wuth the Asolo Mantra I sent one pair back and ordered a 1/2 size smaller. I am a size 11 but most of my shoes I buy are approach shoes in 11.5 and they usually fit and feel perfect. The Mantra felt too long to me in 11.5 and the 11 is just perfect. I said in an earlier review that I have a standard wide foot and for me,, most shoes are too narrow in the 11 and when I upsize to 11.5 it works out width-wise as long as the shoes doesn't run on the long side with too much toe room or heel room. The Mantra shoes are very precise and just enough width for me to feel a tiny bit snug in. Not my preferred feel but when I get them on the trail they perform and feel like a class act. Love em. Didn't love em at first but after a couple of outings I certainly want to wear them often...and they are super nice looking shoe. I don't want to wear them in the mud for fear they will lose there pizzazziness. Lol.

    • Answer My feet are a tad bit wide and sometimes buy wide width. These shoes feel fine and do not pinch my feet. I also wear hiking socks.. I recommend these shoes for hiking in wet conditions. I would not recommend them for trail running. For trail running I prefer shoes with much more support.

  • Question “Do these run true to size?”

    Asked on 6/14/2014 11:32:13 AM by Kevin from Ohio
    • Answer Yes they do. They are not large for size... I have had mine for a while now. I wear a women's size ten and generally a men's 8 1/2 or 9 and these were perfect and very comfortable. I walk a lot, and wanted some good looking shoes. I love them.
      Answered on 6/14/2014 11:36:52 AM by Sam from Michigan
    • Answer Yes they fit true for me. I think I ordered 1/2 sz larger than my usual "dress shoe" size, which is what I always do for trail or running shoes, and they're perfect.
      Answered on 6/14/2014 12:37:09 PM by Chas from Calif.
    • Answer My feet run between 13 and 14, so size is always a problem. Because the Mantra GV has a zillion laces, practically to the toe. That gives you max flexibility in adjusting the fit. I like the shoe because it is super light weight, water proof and tough. i bought a second pair so I can keep going when the 1st gives out.

    • Answer Yes, I normally wear 13 M to W shoes. The Asolo 13M fits well and is very comfortable for me for walking, which is why I purchased. In fact, I bought a second pair.
