I went through Europe for 2 weeks with these shoes, and put miles and miles of walking on them. These are high quality, comfortable shoes. 7 months later, they show almost NO signs of wear, and feel good as new, albeit a little loose. I do everything in these shoes. Most shoes show significant signs...

I've purchased several pairs of Asolo hiking boots, mostly FSN85 and 95, and assumed these might be on the same lasts...plus they didn't show a width. Wrong...I tried two sizes, since the ad says they run large, but even a large one was too narrow. Look good, but don't fit.

Opened the box put them on and haven't wanted to take them off. Good for trail hiking, cooler than my boots in 90 degree weather. Give decent support in foot bed so rough ground doesn't cause a problem. Traction is good longer lace design allows for adjustment if needed. Ordered my regular size and they fit fine. The half size down will probably work also but at size 12 that isn't and option. Very good product. At this price a quality hiking shoe at a cheap athletic shoe price. A very happy customer.

I bought these because I have a pair of Asolo Drifter hiking boots that I love. I was looking for a real hiking shoe that had a stiff enough sole so that you don't feel every rock on the trail and felt the Asolos would deliver. I was not disappointed! These shoes felt really comfortable the first time I put them on and so I went on a 5 mile hike. The trails around here are pretty rocky (hence my desire for a stiff sole) and these shoes delivered the protection that I wanted and yet they still had enough flex to be comfortable. Unlike my hiking boots, these required no break in time. I've since hiked 25 or 30 miles and no blisters, hot spots or anything else unpleasant. Of course, they are not built as well as my Drifters, but then they cost less about 1/3 as much. Note: if you are looking for hiking shoe that "feels" like a tennis shoe (in terms of flex) you will be disappointed with these. However, if you are looking for a low top hiking shoe that performs similarly to a rugged hiking boot then these will fill the bill. Can't speak to their longevity/durability yet as only time will tell.

No they are not waterproof. If you plan to hike a lot in the snow try a mountaineering boot. They are warm and comfortable also they take a lot longer to run into the ground. It just depends how serious you plan to get with the hiking shoe or boot you purchase.
