All Astral shoes have a special relationship with water. Every component, from the thread to the laces are critically evaluated and chosen for its ability to hold up after constant soaking, shed water, and not accumulate funk. Many models have engineered drainage for water to come out while minimizing entry of silt.
We believe that a foot’s position in a shoe should be similar to when barefoot. This allows excellent balance and biomechanically natural lifestyle.
Foot-beds are essentially level (only 1mm drop from heel to toe ) and provide medium arch support. Tapered instep and heel area for better foothold and control Wide forefoot allows your feet and toes to spread out for stability.
This G compound is formulated for premium grip while also providing "excellent" abrasion resistance. It's low durometer means the rubber is softer and therefore conforms well to the ground.

I love these shoes! I guide hiking and backpacking trips in Pisgah National Forest (NC). I bought the shoes on a Thursday and began wearing them on trail Friday morning. Something you are told never to do with new hiking shoes! Well I hiked 20 miles in 2 days and never felt sore anywhere on my feet. I walked up and down rocky and rooty and muddy trail. I was so happy how good my feet felt every step of the way. The shoes are so lightweight too! I am an avid hiker aside from work and these have become my new favorite shoe. I look forward to buying another style (or 2!) of Astral shoes soon.
I would recommend this product
