After wearing these to work for about a week I made a bold move and laced them up for a 34 mile weekend. These boots did not disappoint. Kept my feet nice and dry as we hiked down to Union Falls (18 miles round trip in Yellowstone National Park), which was extremely swampy at the bottom. The boot stays tight, I never had to stop and re-tie them. The soles grip anything and the anti-shock mid-sole is a definite savior after miles down the trail. Going down the 7 mile hole trail in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, which is steep and loose gravel, I had sure footing the whole way in . This is my 3rd pair of Asolo boots and again they have impressed me.
I was in the market for a new all round hiking boot to use for long treks and approach portion's of my climbs. I have used other top brands and decided to give these Asolo's a try...........WOW glad I did.
I used them for a training hike on Camelback in AZ and they felt fantastic right to of the box and still feel great today. Looking forward to using them on Kilimanjaro in December.
Thanks to the GREAT STAFF at Backcountry, you guys and gals ROCK!!!!
only one comment, put these on right out of the box and fit like a glove, no break in period, that is very important to me cause i have a lot of trouble with my feet. very satisfied thank you.
Ordered the La Sportiva Pamir with these to pick one.
These arent nearly as rigid, much narrower, much more nimble.
Exactly what I was looking for. Great fit.
