Asolo Mantras - Suit me well

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dick from Sarasota, Florida on Friday, September 19, 2014
I chose the Mantra based, in part, on my experience with the Asolo Typhoon. Like the Typhoon, the Mantra has a firm footbed that helps an old, unsteady person navigate roots and rocks. The outsole keeps slipping on rocks and ledges down as well (I hike mainly in New England.) The waterproofing works as promise and, with gaiters, I manage just fine in rainy weather. I loved my Typhoons which held up extraordinarily well. I am expecting longevity from my Mantras also based on the reputation of Asolo. I see no reason to go elsewhere except to this manufacturer.
