Size and fit

The Astral TR1 Mesh hiking shoe fits true to size. It is offered in men and women’s regular sizing and standard width. The instep and heel area is tapered for a more secure footing. The forefoot is roomy enough for natural splaying of toes, enhancing stability. Its lace-up closure allows a personalized fit.


To give the TR1 Mesh a grippy sole, Astral designers equipped it with the brand’s patented rubber compound, the G.15. This high-friction rubber is abrasion resistant and employs 5 mm deep lugs to bite on most terrain. It is made softer to increase ground sensitivity.


A cushioned EVA midsole with Top Shank helps reduce fatigue. It is designed with only a 1 mm drop from heel to ball to promote balance and natural biomechanics of the foot.

The midsole works with an EVA heel cup and a removable insole treated with Polygiene. This treatment renders an odor-free environment as it prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria.


The upper of this low-cut hiking shoe uses a ripstop 2D mesh. This material enables quick-drying of the TR1 Mesh after getting soaked in water. Likewise, it maximizes ventilation. A TPU toe and heel cap are added to protect the foot while a heel tab assists in on and off. Drainage is placed at the toes to facilitate water removal while preventing entry of silts.

Additional Info

  • The Foot to Ground distance is 20 mm at the ball and 21 mm at the heel.
