Here we have the new Astral Brewer 2.0 in Basalt black. These are the next step in the evolution of the Astral Brewer. Although the two versions I have look very similar in many respects the 2.0 has taken on a more rounded and developed look. It definitely looks more like a “normal” shoe than the original Astral Brewer.

Astral Brewer 2.0 - First Look

This shoe comes equipped with Astral’s proprietary super-sticky G Rubber outsole. My original pair came equipped with Five Ten’s stealth sole, however later iterations were also supplied with the super-sticky G Rubber.

This basalt black colour option is identical to my original Astral Brewer 1.0 but they are also available in blue or Storm Navy as it is designated.

I’ve been running a set of Astral Hiyaks for a couple of years and can say that the G Rubber is at least the same if not better than the Five Ten Aqua Stealth.
