I have size 13 narrow, low volume, high arch foot. Is this a good shoe for me?
sturdy and bomber
Both my wife and I love our Distance shoes. They work great for soloing easy rock climbs, and on difficult rocky uneven terrain. They are fairly stiff and heavy giving them a boot feel in a sneaker package. When I'm on terrain that my feet will get punished on, I'll wear my Distances. I usually wear out shoes quite quickly and the
Distances last a long time, despite the abuse I give them. They'd be a good big wall shoe as well as standing in aiders for long periods is not an issue.
The Asolo Distance is burly, but a very comfortable approach shoe after break in (3 hikes for me). There's enough stiffness in the toe to negotiate technical scrambling and bouldering. If you're looking to use these on some climbing routes, go a 1/2 smaller. Mine were a little roomy. Overall bomber shoe. These will last you multiple seasons.
