loved these hikers.

These shoes protected me from an ankle injury three times. The third time I almost injured my right ankle, I got a chance to really notice how these shoes are made, for I could feel the support . Wearing these shoes gave me the confidence i needed to proceed with my trail hike and not have to worry about slipping. Because of my experience in the medical field, if I'd have injured my ankle the third time, there would have been a more severe injury. One more thing I like about these shoes, I use them for my regular 3 mile walks, and I have even run with them. One thing I did to them was remove the insoles and replaced them with Unequal kevlar insoles, which protect against shock to the feet, ankle, knees, etc.

- “True Asolo quality”
- “Amazingly supportive, flexible yet sturdy, comfortable.”
- “Great shoes overall, a few things that I hope can help you with your own decisions: the sole by Vibram is not the soft squishy type, it's a bit hard, so I think it would withstand different terrain and elements and wearing them almost every other day they do require breaking in as I read from some reviewers that they did not really find it necessary, which I do differ in that after 2 weeks they are a little softer and not so rigid, perhaps another couple of weeks and they'll be perfect. I have worn them in light rain and seem to withstand the water. These shoes seem very well made and do stand apart from the average pair of hiking shoes.”
- “Great like hiker.”
