"Awesome, Warm, Comfortable, and Kick Ass"
I bought these boots a year ago, and they are so comfortable and warm. The only problem I have is that if you wear them all day there are times when I have to tie the boots again (yes I know how to do the bunny ears). I hike in these boots, split wood on these boots, crack concrete with these boots; I do everything with these boots.
"The most comfortable boots I've ever put on."
I received these boots sooner than expected. When I opened them up, I was super excited with the look. Then even more excited with the fit. This pesky job of mine prevented me from enjoying them for a couple days, but when I was able to, I was again blown away by the comfort. I put about 8 miles on them the first day out, and 10 the next day. They are my new go to. They really show no sign of wearing out, but when they do, I will get the same ones again. Everyone who sees them complements them. I even started wearing them to the gym to workout in. Best boots ever.
These things are SUPER comfortable. My feet always feel great in these! They keep me warm when it's cold, relatively cool when it's hot, and dry when it's wet. What more could you ask for in a boot? I have even met people (the ones who come around trying to 'save' you money on your electric bill) who don't hike but are walking all day who wear them and they say the same thing as me, GET THESE BOOTS.
By far the best pair of hiking boots I have owned! Not that it's the most important factor, but the style I feel is better compared to other full leather boots. As for performance, the fit and support are the best balance I've found in the 15+ boots I've owned over the past 10 years. Not usually a fan of Gore-tex boots but these breath reasonable well and so far (roughly a year of use) still keep my feet totally dry. Plenty of traction, though the soles seem to be wearing quicker than my last pair of La Sportiva. Excellent ankle support and virtually no break-in. Wore them straight out of the box on 12 mile hike using liner/wool sock combo and no blisters, hot spots or other issues. Will buy again when these wear out. My wife has a similar pair she loves.
"Trek with pride, you are rocking the Fugitive GTX"
If you purchase these boots you are doing your feet a solid. Before picking up a pair of Fugitive GTXs I would backpack in my old Iraq issued Navy desert combat boots. They were comfortable for the base and in the heat, but wow were they not suited for backpacking.I fortunately picked these up from Moosejaw and I would highly recommend them. They are like submarines in water, my feet are bone dry after trekking through puddles and low streams. The only con I would have are the weight. I wish they could shave a few more ounces of the boot.Nevertheless, check these out if you are in the market for new boots. They definitely will not let you down.
I have enjoyed these more than any other I have owned . I know when I put them on I do not have to worry about the warmth, dryness, or the support for my feet !! NO WORRIES !! If you are thinking about these think no longer just order you will be HAPPY,HAPPY, HAPPY !!!
This has been my favorite pair of hiking boots that I have owned. I like the style compared to other full leather boots, and boy these things stay dry with the Gore-tex liners. I have never had a pair of boots stay so dry. My only complaint is the the soles seem to wear a bit more quickly than other boots, but the tradeoff is that it seems to be a sticker rubber, so good for scrambling/etc on rock. These are very well constructed, have a very short break in period, and even though I have replaced them with a new pair, they still get worn quite a bit as I can't seem to part with my first pair of Fugutives.
"Holy Shoot are These Bad Boys Amazing!!"
It was recently rumored that Sasquatch himself forged these boots in Mordor while everyone else was bickering about some ring. One boot to rule them all. These babies are comfortable, light, and INDESTRUCTIBLE!!!!Seriously, when December 21, 2012 hits, I'll be wearing the Asolo Fugitive. Not even the Mayans could have predicted how bombproof these boots are. I could walk be dropped into the middle of Lake Michigan and my feet would still be as dry as the Sahara.The only problem I'm having is that I keep throwing my money at my computer screen every time I see the boots on the website. Sadly, no matter how much money I throw, they don't come out of the computer :(
I just got these boots along with some socks a week ago. The size was right on. The boots looked great. And delivery was super fast.... I wore them for the first time on a 10 mile hike with no problems at all. Heading out to climb some peaks on Monday. Stoked! Great Boot!
I have had this boot for a few years and it just keeps putting up with my torture. Two many miles to count in these without using sock liners & only one set of blisters on an extremely steep& muddy 17 mile trail day. Easy, short break-in period, some would say no break-in. It isn't stiff enough for crampon use, but this isn't your boot for that anyway. Holds up great to snow & water with feet always staying dry. The only catch has been the laces which wear quite a bit on the first set of lace hooks above the d-ring eyes. Asolo sent me an extra set of laces, but now I'm using Kevlar. The toe-box is generous & not cramped like comparable La Sportiva offerings.
