Asolo Piuma -

You want to tackle some steep all-day hikes this season, and you know your sneakers aren't going to give you the comfort, support, and cushioning you need. Asolo designed the Men's Piuma Hiking Boots to give you stellar support, solid traction, and superb breathability so you can bag peaks, hike up rugged terrain, and comfortably descend steep trails.

Midsole:

  • Natural Shape is a design that combines a lower heel, thinner midsole, and an anatomical midsole design. This provides a new level of protection and stability while promoting a less restrictive and natural stride
  • Asoflex - the thermoplastic midsole that provides the stiffness and support - is now curved to mirror the shape of the human foot
  • Vibram® Natural Shape outsole is grippy and durable, working with the EVA midsole to take on, and protect you from, the roughness of the trail

Fit:

  • Quick-lace hooks and lace system offer a comfortable, custom fit

Fabric:

  • Water-resistant suede uppers shed moisture from light rain, muddy pathways, and frost-covered trails, while nylon mesh materials ensure breathability
  • Nylon mesh panels in the upper for hot weather comfort
  • Water-resistant suede leather uppers with high-tenacity nylon underlays deliver durable flexibility and support while remaining breathable
  • Wicking nylon velveteen linings absorb and disperse excess moisture for fast drying
  • Velveteen lining is a soft nylon that is durable, comfortable, and wicks moisture

Padding:

  • Gusseted scree tongues and padded ankle cuffs add protective comfort at ankles; rubber toe bumpers protect against impact and abrasion

Support and Cushioning:

  • Boot design's natural shape mirrors the foot so the lower part of the last cradles and supports the foot while the heel shape improves comfort
  • Thermoplastic urethane plates offer torsional rigidity and support
  • Molded EVA midsole and Asoflex natural flex technology provide cushioning, support, and all-day hiking comfort
  • Anatomic footbed cushions your foot, or can be removed and replaced with an orthotic for increased support

Ventilation:

  • Breathable, moisture-wicking Velveteen linings eliminate clammy issues during intense hikes

Traction and Grip:

  • Vibram rubber outsoles offer solid traction on rocky, sketchy, or hardpack terrain
  • Vibram® rubber/EVA blend outsoles are optimized for weight savings without compromising traction for handling mixed terrain

Piuma is Italian for "feather", a great name for the Asolo Piuma hiking boot. Light and airy as a feather, the Piuma also sports the new "Natural Shapes" technology that puts you lower to the ground for increased stability and a more natural motion.

A departure for Asolo

Asolo is pretty well known for well-made, traditional backpacking boots with stiff soles, relatively narrow foot boxes, that are relatively heavy, and which are generally waterproof.

The Piumas are light at ~16-17 ozs each, depending on size. The soles are flexible to allow the foot to move naturally while the suede/nylon mesh uppers provide decent ankle support. The toe box is fairly wide, while the heels cradle my narrow heels well.

Waterproofness is a controversial subject. I do both day hikes and long-distance hikes, and the latter often find me hiking for days in wet, rainy environments. No waterproof boot is going to stay dry out there, but they will take forever to dry once wet.

While the Piumas will allow moisture to get in, they breath really well too. And when they do get wet, they dry quickly.

They do not have much cushion in the foot bed, and I'll be wearing thick sole hiking socks with them.

These fill a niche between trail-runners, and traditional backpacking boots. They'll serve both the day hiker in dry conditions, and the light backpacker on a wet long trail well.

I just received these boots in the mail and tried them on to walk around for a bit. They're extremely comfortable and they provide great balance. The ankle support is superb. Good tread on the bottom appears like it will last a while.
The lace system is good and easy to tighten. Looking forward to take them out on a hike this weekend, will update the review immediately after.
As an extra, they look good too.

Great lightweight boot!

Very comfortable, ultra light weight, and the fit is perfect.

Neutral Reviews:

Lightweight and comfortable however within two weeks of use, albeit strenuous use, in rocky terrain one of the boots took an inch long gash clean through the shoe where the upper meets the sole. Still fine in dry conditions, but problematic for any wet terrain. Not sure if bad luck or poor design, but disappointing nonetheless.
