Donner Hemp Shoe

Simple, yet competent, the Astral Men's Donner Hemp Shoe is a lightweight shoe for getting to where you want to go, whether that's down a muddy trail in Bali, or across town to meet up with friends. The extra-abrasion AGRO rubber outsole forms a burly lug pattern that's extra grippy for navigating slick, wet surfaces you'll encounter on the trail or at the river. Plus, the upper is made from a hemp-derived hydrophobic canvas that sheds water and dries out quick if you have to make a submerged creek crossing. And since you're going to be getting wet, the Donner's insole is treated with Polygiene, which combats stanky odors and funky bacteria, so people won't start avoiding you after you get your feet wet.

  • A lightweight, rugged, minimalist shoe for adventure
  • Quick drying hydrophobic canvas upper sheds H2O
  • Aggro grip G-rubber sole is non-marking, abrasion resistant
  • Lug pattern is ideal for wet rock and muddy trails
  • Polygiene-treated insole to eliminate the stank
  • Embossed lotus flower on tongue a nice touch
  • Item #ASL001U

I’ve been wanting the grey hemp donners for years and finally found them in stock. Shoe is everything I thought it would be and more, so comfortable and the grip is outstanding, wear them out to dinner or walking around the trails, very versatile and great looking shoe, astral is an amazing company. I’m normally a size 10.5 I ordered these in 11 and they fit perfect so ORDER HALF SIZE LARGER, maybe a whole size depending how much room you prefer.

Hello, I was super excited to get these shoes. I wanted a good training shoe for my thru-hike and these seemed to fit the bill. They’re affordable, light, breathable, comfortable and cool looking. Unfortunately after about 25 miles the stitching started to come detached. When I saw this I was super bummed cause I know there’s no way they’d last on a hike that was harder than the moderate hikes I go on around the Bay Area. I’ve continued to use them daily for their comfort. I will find something better before I decide to take my trip.

Hello,

Cash - so sorry to hear and see of this with your Astral's. While the Donner is intended for a little more casual application than a training shoe you shouldn't be experiencing things like this in the first week. You can connect with Astral directly using their warranty form and they should take good care of you - https://www.astraldesigns.com/warranties I would reccomend the TR1 Mesh or Tr1 Junction as more of a training option. It's a competent light hiker, running, water, travel shoe that I've personally put through the wringer. From peak bagging in CO , to travel and play in tropical locations, its my one shoe quiver and is built to sustain the rigors of a good workout too. Mark - ASTRAL Rep

Just got these a week ago. But have worn them everyday since. They are very comfortable and flexible and also look great. I wear a size 13 and was a little worried about the reviews that they'd be a little tight, but they fit great.

Runs small, but great shoe

If you're like me and are usually between two sizes (for me, 10.5-11.0), go for the larger size. These puppies run small. They feel a bit stiff when you first put them on, but after only a couple days, are already much softer. Great look and super grippy sole (at least on dry stuff; haven't tested the "grippiness" on wet stuff yet).

Great shoes from Astral for around town! Leta Astral Rep

Is the rubber in this shoe natural, or a composite? I'm really wondering about the biodegradability of the harder parts of the shoes, rather than the hemp upper.

Hi Larry - That is a good question... Do you mind if I take a moment to reach out to some of our product folks to find out? I'll be back soon. Leta Astral Rep

Larry - the rubber is 80% natural rubber and 20% synthetic. Attached are more details about the environmental benefits of this shoe. Thank you for the question. Leta
