Solid boot!

I bought these to replace a pair of Montrails that I've had for 10 years. The only trail that I've been able to do so far with these was Algonquin in the Adirondacks and they were incredible! I thought with the heavy duty construction that it would take a lot more time to break in but I did the hike in a snow storm (slipping around) and I couldn't ask for a more comfortable boot. The boot also gave me a lot more confidence stepping on snow covered ground where the underlying trail was quite rocky (I did use micro spikes, of course). I actually returned the first pair (which I ordered online) because my foot is like a brick and my normal size felt narrow even with the wide fit. I took it back to the EMS store and the foot specialist recommended that I go 1 size larger to accommodate my especially wide foot in the top box area. My measured foot size is 8.5 EE so I usually go with 9EE but I went with size 10 for this boot per the recommendation. I was a little skeptical, thinking that my foot would move around causing blisters but after the hike to Algonquin, I am sold! I am also somewhat flat-footed so I added a superfeet insert and the boot is just perfect! I intend on using these for my hike to Kilimanjaro and Rainier next year.

Great boot. Too narrow for wide feet.

This is a stout but comfortable boot. Some say it is heavy but I would wear it anywhere. I have a high arch, narrow heel and wide front of foot (4.5" across at widest point). I ordered the "wide" version but it was so narrow that I did not consider trying to stretch or break in the thick leather. Seemed to have good traction and support during the short while I had them. I ended up with Lowa wxl camino flex and that was barely wide enough. The Asolo quality was a bit better than my Lowa boot but not as good as a Zamberlan that I tried on. I almost cried when those were too narrow, extremely well made. I think the Asolo were made in Romania and the Zamberlan in Italy. Ended up with the German Lowa. Chinese Vasque (tried Wasatch and talus) were what you might expect but do have a wider fit. Tough to find wide boots and my foot is not exceptionally wide, wore D in most shoes my entire life but recently had to get 2e in a couple of types of shoes. Never tried them but LLBean Cresta hikers are supposed to fit wide feet and be true to size. Will try those next time I need boots.

Super Boot! Great Fit!

After recently wearing out two pairs of Asolo FSN 95 GTX boots on the rough granite of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness and growing bunions on both feet, it was time to invest in a new pair of boots. The 95's were nice boots but they both wore out after only a few hundred miles each and I really needed to go to a wider boot. These 520's are a most welcomed addition. The fit is unbelievably perfect which surprised the heck out of me and after a few miles my feet still felt great. I was also impressed by the boots construction which appears most robust. I'm looking forward to putting them to the test this summer in the mountains of Idaho and Montana.

Like walking on a cloud!

GREAT BOOTS!! I've been a loyal Lowa fan for over a decade due to their high quality but they tend to squish my little toes and they're only marginally comfortable overall, hence the decison to try something else. These Asolo's are FANTASTIC! Though I've only registered about 100 miles on them so far, they appear to be of top notch quality and they fit like a glove right out of the box! Plenty of ankle support, extremely durable soles, and ample room for aftermarket inserts and cushions. For reference, I'm a big guy (275#) with a slightly wide toe box and a normal arch.

just right

This is my second pair of these boots. The first pair lasted me8 years. And I abused the hell out of them. Many 4000 footers and 1000's of miles. I treated these boots like a red-headed step child and they never failed me. I am an 11 wide and went with an 11.5 to allow for wool socks. fit is just right. They do take a bit to break in but not too bad. If these perform like the last pair they will be worth every penny. Dont hesitate just do it.

Great Boots

My first day out with these boots was a 14 mile hike on a rocky trail with a few steep sections. These boots were incredibly comfortable, which was surprising considering how sturdy they are built. After 6 hours on the trail I didn't even have a hot spot. I wear a 10.5 in most street shoes, however I got an 11.5 in these boots since I wear very thick socks while hiking. These boots fit great and feel great. I usually hate to break in new boots, but these are a plaesure.

A quality boot that's worth a few more $

From the first time wearing these boots I knew this was a good decision. Yes they were on the high end as respects cost but worth every dollar. The decision to buy theses boots was strongly influenced by other reviews and now I too am drinking the Kool-Aid! The EMS staff was great with their help. They recommended going up 1/2 size - I tried on my normal size first and ultimately took their advise. Totally satisfied customer.

very nice

I was surprised at the lack of break-in required for a high, full-leather boot. I took these on a 35-mile backpack in the Smokies after only a couple of 1-2 mile walks in the neighborhood -- no blisters, hot spots, etc. I took a local store's advice and bought wide rather than 1/2 size longer based on my experience with other Asolo's. The rubber toe cap does need to be larger to better protect the toe from scuffing.

Great Boot No Break in needed

Bought these boots for a hiking trip in Rocky Mountain National Park and fell in love with them. These boots feel like they were made for my foot, absolutely no break in period. They provide a nice rocking motion when you walk in them, so much easier to walk in than other types of hiking boots. I have ended up using these boots as my work boot due to the great fit and comfort. AAAA++++

Most Comfortable Boot Ever

I purchased these boots after returning two pairs from a well know Italian boot company that moved their manufacturing to China (the soles came lose on the first pair and a shoe lace eye popped off on the second pair). These are the first Asolo boots I have owned and could not be more impressed. I went on three pack trips in Idaho last summer and numerous day hikes. They are very comfortable and durable.

Good boot but has weaknesses

I like this boot, but the soles delaminated on one pair after moderate use. A lace hook broke on another pair; it was not made of steel, like most lace hooks, but of white metal, a weak alloy used to cast inexpensive parts. I wonder whether a foreign supplier has been cheating Asolo.
