Truly wonderful hiking shoes
This is my first pair of Astral shoes (I have been an avid hiker for almost 25 years and currently average about 30-50 miles/month). And actually, this is the review for my partern's shoes (she ordered after I hiked in them once and told her she must switch). After five hikes in the new shoes, I really, really love them and have minimal complaints.
-my foot (I overpronate) has never felt more stable in a hiking shoe
-have not yet experienced any hot spots (though the longest hike so far in these shoes was only 9 miles)
-incredibly lightweight and breathable
-intelligent design features like the back pull tab and the drainage system
-drainage system seems to invite small trail debris into the shoe (seems like a design flaw to me)
-men's sizes color schemes are quite ugly - come on Astral, people who puchase men's sizes like nice colors too!
-I am concerned about the toe material (it feels like my big toe will eventually pop out, but this is an anticipation and I hope to be proven wrong) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

These shoes are cute- they run a little large with a boxy toe. They are very grippy on the terrain. Great shoes overall. I’ll wear them more in the winter. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Haven't used them for creek walking yet, but these are extremely comfortable and seem grippy. Shipping was crazy fast!!!
