Asolo Reston Hiking Boot Men's - 2 Colors
WINNER of the 2013 Backpacker Magazine Editor's Choice Award for "Best All-Around Light Duty Hiking Boot", the Asolo Reston Hiking Boot belongs to the new Asolo "Natural Shape" line. The "Editors' Choice Awards" are considered the most prestigious awards in the Outdoor market: hundreds of new products are tested annually by the Backpacker Magazines staff, through rigorous field testing, making these awards a mark of exceptional quality.
Says Backpacker Magazine:
"One of the most stable light hikers we've ever tried! The outsole and midsole have rounded edges and a uniquely low profile. We felt notably more balanced and secure in these shoes."
"The Asolo Reston Hiking Boot has been awarded for outstanding design, innovation in materials, performance and comfort." atates the award sent to Asolo, the Italian footwear manufacturer. The Reston's design--part of the Natural Shape Lin--is an innovative formula that combines stability needs and protection with the ability to adapt to the natural contours of the foot and provide extraordinary ground sensitivity. With Natural Shape everything becomes soft and smooth. The new form mirrors the correct shape of the foot and the weight is distributed with special attention to the areas of the foot that receives highest impact. The result is a smooth and pleasant fit. The collection is mainly characterized by the use of a unique new ergonomic form to offer maximum comfort while being lightweight, water resistant and having controlled flexibility. The sole is designed by Asolo in partnership with Vibram: the thermoformed EVA midsole is made with new generation of compounds that enhance lightness, roundness and support. The central insert Asoflex Natural Shape in TPU is directly thermoformed to the midsole. Its unique construction offers support and containment in the side / rear whilst the grooves in the middle section of the sole allow for a smooth and pleasant roll of the foot. The bi-colour rubber sole has a contained lateral profile that reflects Natural Shapes new standard. The Asolo Reston is strong and harmonious, focused on the points that contact the ground most during the support and thrust stages, ensuring excellent traction.
