What’s my size in Astral shoes?

Astral shoes tend to fit true to size when worn barefoot or with a thin sock. In general, you may want to consider going up 1/2 size to accommodate dry suit booties or a thick sock. Our shoes are designed to be narrow in the heel and mid foot, with a wide toe box. This allows the shoe to be low profile, but leaves room for your foot to spread out when carrying weight (a kayak). We consider any foot greater than E as possibly too wide for our shoes, however they do stretch out a bit after breaking them in.
When possible we suggest to try them on before purchase at your local Astral dealer.

See Why Others Call These The Best Outdoor Shoes

My new favorite shoe!

June 14, 2017

i bought these shoes about 2 months ago to replace my chacos and i havent taken them off since. I wear them around the city, to the bars, to work, you name it. They are insanely comfortable, you barely realize they are on your feet. They are light and airy, Read More drain well and dry even better. The grip on wet rocks is better than that of my vibram soled chacos, and i like having my toes protected ( a hard learned lesson in my chacos). Will definitely buy a few other models from yall!

LOVE my Rosa flips

June 27, 2016

I work as a guide on the Grand. I have worn a LOT of flips over the past 40 years and these are hands down the best flips I have ever used. They are comfortable--I have not gotten a single blister from the straps which have always been Read More a significant issue with the other 3 major brand flips I have used. The footbed is comfortable and has enough support for all day hikes, all day wearing, every day. The soles are as grippy as any rubber out there--including 5-Ten. They are a tiny bit slippery in the footbed when wet but the pods with the extra grip do their job and keep your foot really pretty stable. They aren't the easiest to keep clean if you wear them 24/7 like I do but so what--these shoes are so comfortable it doesn't matter. If you want a work-horse flip that you can depend on to stay on and do the job, this is your flip. My other guide friends thought I was a bit overboard in my joy with these things until they got some of their own. I LOVE THESE FLIPS!!!! and my LowYaks are pretty awesome too!

A Hiking Shoe for those not afraid of Wet Feet

December 14, 2017

I used this shoe for 500+ miles this season. I loved the performance of the grippy sole. When going back and forth between this and other hiking sneakers I would notice how much more grippy Astrals were. I loved how quickly the shoes dried out. I'm not Read More one to avoid getting my feet wet so it was nice to have the holes drain out water as soon as I got out. I would recommend these shoes to anyone.
