On my third pair.


  • Light
  • Waterproof
  • Stylish :)


  • No ankle support, but they are day hikers

Love these shoes. 

They popped up on sale at STP for under $85 and I thought to give them a try. I live in the NW so something waterproof and somewhat insulated for winter. I've used them on weekenders and multiday trips. These combined with gaiters make an awesome combo even in 12+ inches of snow.

I'm flat footed and usually go for an E width, so was concerned with the narrow footbed, but I use my insoles and loosen the front laces then tighten up by the top and this allows for my foot to stretch in and relax.

Highly recommended.

I own an assortment of Salomon trail runners/hikers, Keens, Asolo, Keen and Vasque backpacking boots. I've had these Asolo Contour GTX's for two days and had to force myself to take them off for bed.

I slid a set of Spenco polysorb dayhiker insoles in and fits like they were designed for them. Plenty of room for aftermarket insoles and that's a really, really, really good thing! Can't say that for many low-cuts. Many low-cuthikers won't allow for a beefy insole.

Hiking boots with an athletic cut...spectacular. My new favorites!!!

Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Use: dayhikes (4-14 miles)
Break-in Period: 1 month daily wear
Price Paid: $100

I've had these shoes for over one year now, and they have accompanied me on many miles, whether it be over backcountry or through urban jungle. Mostly they have been used for day hikes with a good amount of elevation change (Northern CA/Sierras).

They are sturdy, waterproof, and not too heavy. The workmanship seems to be quite superb, although it will take several more years of use before I can truly state that they are bomb-proof.

The one issue that I have with these shoes is that they are not extremely breathable, and my feet can get hot in them on the warmer days. Other than that, these shoes fit well and perform well. Enjoy.

A great shoe.


  • Comfortable
  • Waterproof


  • Wore through sole

These have been one of the best hiking shoes I have ever had. They are very similar to the Merrell Moab. I have used them for day-to-day use and light hiking. The durability is great. They offer a bit more cushion than the Merrell Moab but are not quite as breathable.

They fit true to size and width.
