Backpacker Magazine calls the Reston:
"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 Reston's design combines stability needs and protection with the ability to adapt to the natural contours of the foot and providing extraordinary ground sensitivity . With the Reston's "Natural Shape" everything becomes soft and smooth . Asolo's new form mirrors the correct shape of the foot and the weight is distributed with special attention to the areas of the foot that receive the highest impact . The result is a smooth and pleasant fit . Asolo's Natural Shape collection uses a new ergonomic form to offer maximum comfort while being lightweight, water resistant and flexible . The Reston's 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 . What are the best light weight hiking boots ? The Asolo Reston - hands down.
