Great low hikers - Asolo is always dependable

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Hipster Doofus from CT on Tuesday, April 21, 2015
I like ‘em a lot. I got these because I liked the full-length laces for better fit and I wanted a very lightweight (and waterproof) low hiker. These fit the bill perfectly. They are like sneakers on steroids.

If you’re used to a Keen or Merrill hiker, these are definitely lighter. I think Asolo gets the lightness by reducing the padding in the sole, so they’re not as cushy as the Keens, but still a very comfortable shoe, and the sole is super-grippy in wet conditions.

I have a pair of Asolo high-top hikers and the footbed feels the same as these do.

The fire red color is really bright and slightly on the orange side of red, so if you want a less extroverted look go for the wool color.
