The Men's Power Matic 200 GV Boot by Asolo is a rugged yet hi-tech Gore-Tex lined leather hiking boot. The new Asolo Power Matic sole is comprised of three different PU densities that are co injected and molded together. The high-density front portion secures and guarantees maximum stability. The medium-density heel reduces shock and resulting fatigue during take-off and landing. Further shock absorption is obtained through the four strategically placed low-density cylinders that are linked from the outsole to the mid sole Gripped with a dual-density molded rubber outsole produced in conjunction with Vibram, the arch area uses a very high-density rubber to maximize support over the long-haul while the balance of the outsole has self-cleaning lugs designed for optimum performance on varying types of terrain.

Top notch quality... doesn't breath.Had these boots for a little over a year now. Broke them in fairly easy for a stiff boot. For the price you expect a lot from this product. The roller lace system is a nice touch. This boot needs a toe cap to prevent unnecessary wear. They were very comfortable during the winter months, but for summer they were horrible. They fail to breath. I have dry feet and can normally wear 1 pair of socks for a 20 mile + day. I was doing the BMT in Georgia and was changing out my socks every few miles. I'm an experienced hiker who wears smartwool socks and had the boots fitted properly. I've never had a blister before until I wore these boots.

best boots I have ever wornI got these boots 2 years ago to hike Philmont with my son. wore them for six months daily to acclimate to the weight of the boot, soon I didn't even know they were on my feet. the hikes leading up to the big hike went by with no problems/ great ankle and sole support. 10 days and 70+ miles through the mountains with ~50lb packs were terrific. Never got blisters did get hot spots on heals during long downhills,but readjusting boots helped. toes of boots definitely get scuffed but that just adds character doesn't affect function. no problems just walking through streams, no sissy rock skipping. pulleys have worked great

Great heavy-duty, supportive bootI got these boots about a week ago. I typically order wide shoes, but a 14-wide wasn't available, so I got the regular 14. They actually didn't feel too bad but I found a way to make them fit even better. What I do is keep the boots fairly loose around my forefoot. Then, at the last pulley I do a surgeons knot (look it up) then continue to lace the rest of the boot tightly. This gives a great "custom" fit (looser on the forefoot, tight around the ankles). I plan on using these mainly in the Red River Gorge in Eastern KY and theSmoky Mtns in TN. In a few years, they will be coming with me on an Everest base camp trek. Oh! Also, the grey leather looks really cool :)

5 years with them. Not again.Got ‘em in July of 06 & they’ve been OK. The issue is fast wearing soles that don’t grip in the wet so well even when new. I did the Tour du Mont Blanc in these, thru-hiked the Grand Canyon and never let the weather stop me. They *are* waterproof & fit nicely after break-in. One cool thing about this boot is the lacing system. Smooth & the laces stay tight. I have the original laces & they’re good to go. Can't say the same for the soles. These were goners after 4 years, yet my wife has matched every mile with her 10-year-old Italian made Vasque Sundowners, the boot I had before the Power Matics. The next pair I like I'm going to buy 5 pair of. Too bad these weren't the ones. Happy trails.

Most comfortable boots I've ever wornI'm firefighter/paramedic. I'm on my feet all day, and have to comfortable, durable boots. I also do alot of outdoor things. I hike, hunt, fish, and camp, and do alot of tree cutting. So when I buy boots I get a pair I can use everywhere. These boots are hands down the best I've ever had. Extremely comfortable, and easily broken in. They're kinda salty as far as price, but you get what you pay for. I've had them a little over a year now and they are showing pretty minimal signs of wear. I'd suggest them to anybody.,,-Joshua Mast-

Jab me in the right foot, unwearable after about 6 milesI'm not sure if I got a defective pair, or if all Asolo boots suck. I have tried these and the Fugitve GTX. I normally wear a 9.5. In the Fugitive, even in the 10 my little toes hit the end. No good. Upgrade to a 10 in the Powermatic. The length and width was perfect, but if I would have taped the the huge amount of money I spend on these on the bottom of my feet, at least now I would have my money back. I walk everywhere I go, and the other day had to go about 12 miles. After a while, I couldn't stand the toe area jabbing the top of my foot with each step. By mile 6, I had to take the boots off. I looked down to make sure I wasn't wearing a pair of $12 boots from a big box store. I was in fact wearing the Powermatics. Now I have to sell these for probably half the price, and pick up cans to recycle to make the money back. A more fitting name for these boots, would be a name I said after wearing them: Son-a-ba-beesh!

Not the best AsoloI have been backpacking since 1975 and found the perfect boot for me 15 years ago, the Asolo 535. I then migrated to the Asolo 520 and Powermatic. I regret ever trending away from the 535. It breathes much more readily than either the 520 or Powermatic and will perform better because of this. I can't remember ever getting a blister in the 535 but have had serious blister problems with both the 520 and expecially the Powermatic. I am going back to the Asolo 535 and sticking to it. It's the best boot I have ever walked in.
