Astral TR1 Merge Shoes

Anyone try the new Astrals yet? I was planning to get another pair of Rasslers but they are discontinued. Curious about sizing, the Rasslers definitely ran small. These new Merge shoes look promising but they also look more designed for land. How well do they drain?

Cannot comment on the merge but I have the tr1 mesh and love them they run a smidge small but drain great, wore them straight out of the box with no socks on a six mile trek through tons of creeks, way happy. Not the most stylish but perform well.

The TR1 Merge appears to have the same lowers as the TR1 Mesh. Similar to the other responder, I have the Mesh and they've been great. Comfy, no break in time, light, good grip on the soles, drain well.

Any more feedback on the TR1 Merge? I'm debating between these and the Hiyak. I have a bad ankle so need a high top for more support. Thanks!

The Hiyak is a very soft flexible shoe. Like play boating bootie soft. The Merge should be a lot more supportive for hiking and scrambling. I broke down and picked up a pair of closeout brewers until I can try on the Merge or maybe the Rasslers come back out. Im wondering how well the Merge drain? Do they soak up more water then past Astrals? If not they should be a really nice river boot...
