GORE-TEX, GORE-TEX Performance Comfort
Hiking, Backpacking, Trekking
If you haven't heard of GORE-TEX by now, you've probably been living under a rock. And that would make sense, because living under a rock is probably the only place where you wouldn't need the durable waterproof and windproof protection that GORE-TEX fabrics offer. So when you're ready to venture out from under your rock, arm yourself with the comfortable protection of GORE-TEX.
GORE-TEX Performance Comfort Footwear
GORE-TEX Performance Comfort Footwear offers optimized climate control for moderate weather conditions. It does this through breathability and elemental protection. Your feet will remain dry and comfortable all day as you hike or climb or chase down your dog who got out because your UNCLE GREG FORGOT TO CLOSE THE GATE. AGAIN!

EXCELLENT BOOT FOR COMFORT..wear everyday, but sole fell apart..and replacement pair too expensiveI love Asolo Boots...been wearing them for about 10 years now...and they fit very comfortably right out of the box...literally wear them everyday for work, and pleasure...but the last two pairs of these that I bought the sole falls away from the boot after about 1.5 years...otherwise they would still be going strong...I guess I shouldn't complain based on my wearing them every day...I do get my money out of them...but now they are priced well into the mid 250's....too expensive....I am shopping for another brand..I hate to give up on Asolo but they have priced themselves out of the market...I'll try another brand for $150 and test my luck...

HAD THESE BOOTS JUST SHY OF 4 YEARS.........AWESOME!!!!I have had these boots for 4 years now. The sole is finaly giving way; but keep in mind I am in construction and wear these as my work boots every day, as well they are my hiking boots. They have been a lot of places and taken me hundreds of miles without fault or blisters. Break in is very easy on these boots and wear even better. They are very supportive and fit like a glove. The eyelets are supurb and the leather is as tough as nails. Sending them off to get re-soled and hoping they go another four years. All and all I highly recomend these boots to anyone; they are well worth the price you pay. In this case, "you get what you pay for"

My girlfriend hates them because I wear them everywhere... even to black tie events.In short, these boots rock. I've had mine for a while now and they are comfortable, dry, and relatively light... compared with my old boots (Meindl) The sizing is spot-on, whatever size shoes you wear regularly, get the same size in these. The only reason I didn't give them a 5 star review is due to the price, they are a little on the expensive end. However, I think they are definitely worth it if you want to spend the money. Also, they look way better than most boots, which helps me pick up chicks... ok, so that last part was BS but you should still buy these if you are looking for a great pair of trekking boots.

Doesn't get any better than these!My first outing in these boots was in rugged Tasmania a couple of weeks ago and boy was I impressed! Was told to wear them in before the 80km hike but only managed a few short walks. They fit like a glove from day 1, no hotspots whatsoever. I didn't think I had worn them in enough as they were always comfortable, I was sure I would be in a world of pain after the first day. Well after 7hrs of uphill, rocky terrain my feet felt great. Very stable across all surfaces and great support. Best of all was seeing others awkwardly side stepping mud and puddles (and still getting wet feet) but I just walked straight through with perfectly dry feet...damn these boots are awesome!

LEGIT!I used this product in the mountains of NE Afghanistan while trying to track down the Taliban. This is the best pair of boots i have ever owned. i never got blisters even when fording streams that filled my boots with water while conducting recon missions in our area of operations. we climbed mountains using all sorts of routes and these boots gave me the confidence i needed when placing my feet even in total darkness. this allowed me to focus on security and scanning while moving rather than worrying about sliding down the mountain. they held up great with all of the abuse i put them through. Thanks Asolo.

great hiking bootsI've been looking for a lighter pair of hiking boots for some time now, and these Asolo have turned out to be the perfect choice. I've been wearing a pair of Lowa Alpine Guide boots that are just a tad too tight in the toe, and heavy for casual day hikes in the local forest. The boot has plenty of quality features that Asolo is known for, and the attention to detail is spot on. The outsole is quite rigid and adds a lot of stability on uneven terrain. Because the outsole is so rigid, you should take the time to break the boots in before a long hike, especially in the hills. From this point forward, Asolo is my boot of choice for the great outdoors.,,

Extremely Nice Boot!!!I bought this boot mainly for Hiking/Ridgewalking while looking for new caves. The fit of the boot is perfect and very comfortable, didn't even have to think about trying on other boots. Depending on what you do, leather my wear faster. I've done a bit of caving and toes are all cut up, don't advise for a climbing boot. The boot has good ankle support and virtually no break in period. Could use round laces as opposed to the flat ones it comes with. The soles have amazing grip on most surfaces! The entire boot is very easy to clean off incase you've been out in mud. All around I am very pleased with this boot and HIGHLY recommend it, well worth the money!

Built like a tank, feels like a mink coatIf there is only one piece of gear I could save from a fire, it would be by Asolo boots. I have hiked hundreds of miles in these boots, and they are built to last. They have stood up to an entire summer doing survey work on Mt. St. Helens with sharp volcanic rocks everywhere. They are also completely water proof, and keep my feet dry in situations where my friends' feet have been soaked. They fit very comfortably, and I rarely even get warm spots when I wear them, let alone blisters. They provide a lot of support and protection, and are especially sturdy around the ankles. They are a little expensive, but this is one investment that is worth making.
