Review by Steven
As a nurse in the SA public health system so my shoes and feet cop a beating. My only concern is with the design of the front of the shoe. I would like to see more protection to the front of the shoe from foot injury due to heavy items falling or rolling onto the front or side of the foot and toes. I note the extra protection at the very front of the shoe but I consider this inadequate for my needs. Please view my comments as constructive in nature, otherwise you have produced a product that is clearly superior to all but a few of the most expensive suitable shoes available on the market. The sole of the shoe has lasted considerably longer than expected as related to experiences with other brands. I will continue to watch your shoe design developments as my shoe replacements become needful. Thank you for your efforts to make a better suitable shoe.

Review by Anthony
This very expensive shoe is great for walking in to and from work 5 days a week for less than 6 months with orthotics. When I first purchased the Ascent Zest in March 2016 I paid $179.95. I would have rated it 5/5. It had a 6 month outsole guarantee. Now August 2016 the outsole with diamond grip is starting the wear. Also the 6 month guarantee has been removed. I believe this shoe is excellent. However, it is way too pricey for good value for money. Normal work shoes on special for $79 wear in 6 months of use. I didn't expect the Zest to wear as quickly for what you pay. I will contact Athlete's Foot to assess my shoe and hopefully replace it. A credit to the shoe and custom orthotics from my Podiatrist which alleviated my knee problem due to flat foot. But come on please make this shoe more affordable.

Review by Paul
Have been wearing these for almost 2 years for work. Will be buying another pair as they are starting to get a little tired looking and don't quite feel the same anymore. 2 years however is great lasting for shoes that are worn 13 hours 5 days a week!
