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.
The new Piuma, by Asolo, is created with your comfort and stability in mind. Its originally designed Natural Shape fit boasts a Tpu central insert and molded EVA midsole, which work to offer support and improve foot control on the sides and back. The slots in the medial part of the boot allow a smooth and pleasant rolling. This boot is ideal for light hiking and day hikes!
The Asolo Piuma hiking boots provide exceptional support, amazing breathability, and all-day comfort. They're a great choice for warm-weather hiking.
The Asolo Piuma works with the natural shape of your foot to give you the protection and comfort you need to take on the rigors of the trail. Breathable nylon mesh and water-resistant suede let your feet breathe, while also shielding your foot from perilous scree and thorny bushes you might encounter on the way. The Vibram® Natural Shape rubber outsole and EVA midsole are lightweight, but offer superior traction for any trail.

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.
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.
