I exchanged the Asolo FSN 70's (Editor's choice award, Backpacker Mag) for these. What a difference! The minute I took these Attivas out of the box and slid them on, I knew they would be just like all the other Asolo's I have worn out. That is, a perfect fit. Comfort like a slipper. Outstanding performance on the Appalachian Trail. I have put thousands of miles on Asolo boots and I fully expect to use these for at least a thousand. I have been wearing them on short hikes around my neighborhood to get ready for another AT hike next week. I can revise this review when I put them to the ultimate test there.

I've had these two weeks and have been out on two 3+ mile hikes and have worn them around town. So far, they are great. As for size, I'm usually a 9, but after looking at other reviews, went for an 8.5 and it is still a smidge bigger than I expected. But, so far it hasn't had any impact on comfort; I just wear thick socks.
The Atlantis is a heavier and an inch taller than the Attiva.

“I am looking for a boot for dog tracking which is on uneven terrain. I definetly want Gore-tex because we track through water and wet grass and snow. I want ankle support because we move at high speed, behind a big strong dog, over uneven terrain and I might have to navigate lumps and burrows or unseen holes and not fall down. I hope not to twist my ankles. I also want a sole with good traction on wet grass, mud and/or rough surfaces. We will climb hills and fences and go over logs in the woods. I also want it to be flexible around the toe area so my foot feels comfortable running...The foot has to be able to bend. I don't want to feel like I am wear a hard cast around my feet. I guess this is a tall order but it seems the Asolo must havde a model that can offer these features.”

I think these will serve you well in most aspects except the flexibility part. Asolo's have a moderately stiff sole, but it will loosen up after time and use. I think Asolo is the way to go far your needs and wants. Allow for a break in process before you take them right in to the field.

“Does this boot come in narrow fittings? My shoe size width is 4A. Any suggestions? Thx”

These have a nice wide toe box. I usually wear two pair of socks a thin under liner and then my hiking socks.I could wear them all day. I am 65 and have never worn such a good shoe for walking. It took me this long to realize I cannot do everything in my New Balance sneakers.

The Sand color is currently available in a size 8.5; however, the red is still unavailable in that particular size at this time.

“I normally wear a size 7. I like to wear pretty thick hiking socks, should I purchase the 7 or the 7.5? Thanks.”

I would order your regular size in this boot model.

I do not know whether you have made a decision on this yet, or found a suitable answer. I would have to say that there are many factors that would affect the answer to this question. Are your feet wider than the average, do you have a high arch etc. etc.?||For me personally, I wear a 7 for open shoes (sandals). However, when it comes to hiking and running, I find a 7 too small and my toes push against the front. I normally wear a size 8 for hiking and running. I can also tell you that on Asolo brands, I wear 8.5 as I find the 8 a little too narrow for me.||A good check for me is to try the shoes on and push my toes right to the front, if I can fit two fingers in behind my heel (about an inch), I know that running in the shoes won't cause me problems.

This is not necessarily true. I actually bought a half size larger and am happy with the result. However, I tend to use these boots for serious hiking only for which I also wear two pairs of performance socks.

“I am writing from Australia and am interested in the Asolo Attiva hiking boots for women. How different are U.S sizes from Australian shoe sizes. I am an Australian 8, European 38 in regular shoes? I assume I'd need to go at least half a size up in hiking shoes in Australian sizes. How about US sizes?”
