I 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 awa…

Bought these boots couple of weeks ago. They were so comfortable that I took them on a 8 mile hike the same day. These boots feel like they were custom-made to my feet, they…

These are much nicer than the Scarpa invernos because they have a velcro inner boot. Much easier to get on and off, plus no inner lace keeper to bang up your shin. I have ma…

This review is based on the use of these boots in South East Alaska's climate. (Temps ranging from 0 deg F to 40 deg F, try the 8000's for colder temps). Liners broke in after…

These are cool boots but if you are looking at purchasing them, you must ask yourself one questions... "What will you be using them for?"... because they are not an all purpos…

I'm not 100% of the model that I have...but I paid $200+ for my leather Asolo's about 3-4 years ago. They've saved my ankles hundreds of times from fatigue/slope related rolls…

It's supposed to be a light boot, and it is, but the sole is so thin that you feel every rock and crack. Probably okay for well-maintained trails, but anything more would lik…

So far I am satisfied with this boot-It is durable*, waterproof, breathable and has a good grip for a non-vibram outsole.
*Watch the metal hooks on the laces, as they tend to…

Men's Asolo Footwear
Asolo makes a ton of super fancy men's footwear. There are Asolo mountaineering boots perfectly suitable for any black-tie affair, Asolo men's hiking boots to wear to grammy's special Sunday brunches, and Asolo trail running shoes for running on really aristocratic trails.
Men's Asolo hiking boots are pretty much the cream of the hiking boot crop. Take the Men's Asolo TPS 520 GV Boot, for instance. They're made of water-resistant full grain leather with a breathable Gore-Tex lining for extra comfort on the trail. This waterproof boot also features the Triple Power Structure Sole, which incorporates three shock absorbers that corespond with high impact areas on the foot, improving comfort and stability on the trail.
While we're talking about boots, let's talk about Asolo men's mountaineering boots. You have your choice of heavy leather boots, synthetic boots, or double plastic mountaineering boots from Asolo. If leather's your thing, check out the Asolo Makalu GV. They've got a waterproof Gore-Tex Performance liner and the Asolo/Vibram Everest dual-density rubber sole, giving you comfort, warmth, and stability. If double plastic boots are your thing, head over to the Asolo AFS 8000 Boot, and prepare to be pretty impressed. With its Velveteen and Thinsulate inner boot and Pebax shell, this killer alpine boot is suitable for altitudes over 5000m, winter and ice climbing.
As far as men's Asolo shoes go, like boots, it's all about the trail. Check out Asolo hiking shoes, like the Men's Moray Shoe. This hiker has a waterproof full grain leather upper and Asolo/Vibram Cross walk sole, so it looks as good on the street as it functions on the trail. For trail running, check out the Asolo Men's Dominator Shoe. This men's trail running shoe has a nylon mesh upper for superior breathability, and a Propulsion 1000 and TPU dual-density sole for stability and tons of support.
