My wife just wore these boots for the first time. After owning a pair of North Face boots, she claims there is really no comparison in the comfort of the Asolos. They fit true to size and require very little by the way of break in. Highly recommended.
Bought this boot for my wife. After our first overnight trip, she absolutely loved them. Very comfortable right out of the box. They fit true to size and she had no issues whatsoever. They replaced a pair of her North Face boots and there is no comparison in the quality of this boot compared with it. Great buy.
these boots are very comfortable, i have a narrow foot and they fit me well. they kept my feet dry and warm! i have poor circulation so keeping my feet warm is a serious thing. hiked in them all day and felt good. feet did not hurt at all. recommend them highly.
Hiking boots do not fit the same on everyone, personally I like these. They are my second pair and I use them for backpacking. The boots have excellent ankle support and have tough soles which makes them stiff but unlike other boots with flexible soles I dont have to feel every rock underneath me. They are waterproof and seem to hold up well. One thing these boots are know for is being lightweight so dont expect a lot of padding. I have considered replacing the insoles with some cushion but have hiked over 13 miles a day in these and it hasn't bothered me yet. They are true to size dont buy a half size up in these
I bought these boots in Gunmetal/Graphite, and they are a great looking hiking boot. The colour is a bit different from the picture on the website, the blue is more of a sky blue. These are a really comfy, plenty of support for my ankles when carrying a heavy backpack,I also find them to be really light. Wouldn't recommend wearing them in the wintertime, my feet get pretty cold!
"If these aren't any better then the Stynger..."
I got the Stynger and At the expense of these boots they should hold up alot better and longer then they do..the toe of mine came loose from the sole not even a year after purchase...I tacked it back down with Gorilla glue..then the other one did the same. It's too bad, cause they are comfortable, lightweight, and traction is excellent! Breathability is awesome also...I'm still wearing them as the Gorilla Glue holds up better then the boot itself! They might be ok for the occasional hike, but for everyday rigours you might find a better pair.
