excellent approach / low hiking waterproof shoes

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Guza from California on Friday, September 12, 2014
These shoes are fantastic - no break-in time, fully waterproof, light, grippy... The shoes have a surprisingly good ankle support for the "low" hikers. I only wear vibram 5fingers as a minimalist barefoot option during the day, and the Asolo Mantra's are the only waterproof hiking shoe that works for me. The lacing system is excellent, so the shoes almost have the "custom" fit. Besides the five fingers, this is the only shoe thus far that I can wear and forget that I have them on - a hard task for a hiking shoe. I order the 1/2 size smaller (I am usually a 10, but 9.5 works a little better for me in this case). They have the climber-shoe look, and the red color works well. Of course, this is all complemented by the fantastic service at the STP.
