Nice, sturdy, heavy, roomy
Reviewed by Math teacher from CT on Sunday, February 21, 2016
Bought these to replace my old Asolo FSN 95s. I hike about 2 hrs/wk on rocky/rooty New England trails, and figured I wouldn't mind the extra weight of these. I really like these, but they are heavy and I found them to be large in every dimension (not that long, but tons of volume in there - maybe too much). Replaced the horrible stock sole with Superfeet insert, that helped eat up volume. In the end, I don't know if these make a ton of sense as they are heavy, but I really like them. Not as snug or fast as my FSN95s, but they are beautiful. I actually enjoyed coating them in Obenaufs - great smell, great feel. In the end, the appeal is similar to a nice old steel road bike. A bit heavy, not as fast, but build to last and be admired.
