I bought these to replace my North Face hiking boots that gave me blisters on the back of my heels even after calling North Face and asking them what I should do (FYI I was advised to use 2 sock liners which didn't work!). I thought the price looked good, but I wasn't sure, so I tried to find someplace else that was selling them. I couldn't find the same ones but I did notice that every pair of this brand that is boots is over $175 most over $200! So I purchased them.
Once I received them I put them on and my toes seemed to have a lot of room. I put on my wool hiking socks that I plan on hiking in and then went for a walk around the block. They are kinda stiff but that is how they should be. I wore them hiking and did a 6+ mile hike that was pretty strenuous and went through a creek. I also had purchased a pair of superfeet inserts (berry) hoping I could fix my other hiking boots but after I saw the sole was coming off I just bought this pair of shoes. I put the insoles in and they made the shoes fit better. The creek I walked through, I stepped in up to my ankle and my feet stayed totally dry!
If anyone is worried about feet getting wet, Goretex guarantees that they won't leak and if they do they will replace, fix or refund so that is another added assurance, over the ST returns accepted-which is one reason I love this company! Try and find a company that will take stuff back once it shows any signs of usage, but how are you supposed to know something works right unless you USE IT?

Liked the looks of this boot but for me the toe box was a little cramped. I ended up getting a blister on my big toe so I had to send them back. If you don't need a wide toe box I would definitely recommend this boot. Well constructed and lighter in weight then my TPS520 GV boots. This boot is more stiff then other suede and nylon boots I've owned but if your looking for good support without all the weight this is a good boot.
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.
