Asolo Khumbu -
The Asolo Khumbu GV backpacking boot was inspired by the evolution of alpine climbing boot design. Asolo modernizes the heavy-duty backpacking boot; at once burlier and more supportive, the Khumbu also allows for more efficient motion and is lighter in weight than Asolo's classic Powermatic or TPS 520 boots.

Support and Cushioning:

  • Lite 2 anatomic footbed supports and cushions your foot with a lightweight molded foam

Weather and Wind:

  • Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membrane retains heat, offers waterproof protection, and remains breathable


  • All components of the boot such as materials, stitching, lace hooks, and laces are subjected to regular quality inspections to meet the standards of Gore and Asolo

Lining and Layers:

  • GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort lining offers optimal heat retention to keep you dry & comfortable during a wide range of conditions and outdoor activities


  • Last fits feet with a medium to large width


  • Anti-Shock PU technology in midsole reduces bruising and fatigue, absorbs shock, and offers a high level of rebound
  • Dual density microporous midsole + PU Anti-Shock insert. The dual-density microporous midsole creates a new standard for shock absorption and comfort

Traction and Grip:

  • Heavily lugged Vibram sole offers superior traction and four-way slip resistance


  • Upper made from durable and water-resistant suede


  • Made in Europe


  • Flex zones in ankle area improves mobility
  • Water-resistant suede mm 1,6-1,8 for abrasion resistance, combined with a climbing boot inspired sticky rubber rand
  • Asolo/Vibram Ascent sole
  • Technical hiking boot
  • High-density polyurethane element positioned in the heel’s area

Asolo Khumbu Reviews:


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!!!!

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.
