Good Looking & Hard Working

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Donald from Connecticut on Thursday, October 29, 2015
I like the look & fit (true to size) so much that I'm reluctant to beat them up on rough terrain. I've been wearing them for dressier casual wear & walking because they are so sharp looking. The lace to the toe design is very functional allowing for substantial width adjustment. I walked for 1 hour last night in pouring rain & the shoes were bone dry inside. I preemptively sprayed the suede leather twice with Kiwi Camp Dry fabric water repellent to keep the leather becoming water saturated on top of the Gore Tex membrane. Don't know if the spray was absolutely necessary & it darkened the suede, but I walk in all weather 365 days a year & found supplementing the waterproofing is worthwhile. The Camp Dry doesn't contain silicone which could reduce breathability of the Gore Tex. The support & traction of the Asolos is good & the Vibram soles don't load up with debris very much & sole wear has been moderate.
