Been wearing these boots for about two weeks now in northern PA in February and so far very pleased! It's been very wet and cold and so far my feet have stayed dry and warm. Worn them on a day hike in fresh snow up to 5" without issue--uppers stayed dry, traction was good, and the Gore-Tex did it's ... Read More

    Very comfortable. Have an orange pain. Needed a color that was more acceptable to wear to work.

    Fit as described. 27 sm, and no more. One of the best boots that I've seen.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by James from Massachusetts on Monday, May 8, 2017
    Am very pleased with the brand, first time purchased I made the mistake of listening to some reviews that suggested they run 1/2 size larger...they don't. After convincing myself that they fit I wore them and descending a hill my toes hit the entire time so I had to order my original size, they fit great. They are flexible through the toe area which I wish they were a little stiffer for a hiking boot. Can wear with an ankle sock and no abrasion, stood in a river with no wetness.

    These shoes fit true to size, are well made and look great. I haven't taken them out to break in yet, but from the looks of them they will hold up for a good while. They are gore-tex waterproof and the shoe height comes up to ankle to giving ample clearance for water passes.

    These are fabulous shoes. They look great, they are sturdy, supportive and comfortable right out of the box.
    I have been just admiring them since they arrived. I almost hate to get them dirty.
    They are most excellent light hikers/walkers, exactly what I was looking for. I also have a pair of heavier Scarpa boots and it is well worth it to pay for Asolo and Scarpa quality.

    • The shoes seem to run true to size, and although narrow in appearance, they did not feel particularly narrow. However, as with other Asolo brand shoes, the toe box is somewhat cramped. Also, the lacing is a bit tedious for every day casual wear, but should help provide great support for hiking. Still a great looking shoe.

    • 1. I wear a NB/Brooks 11D, and I bought a 10.5 Asolo and fit perfectly. I also have orthotics, and it still gives a snug fit.
      2. I recommend you finding a way to vent out the air w/in the shoes. An athlete will find that the GorTex REALLY seeps in the flavor, thus making your shoes really stinky. Either Dryer Sheets or tea bag should help.

      Hope this helps.

    • I wear a 9 1/2 C. My feet are narrow, and my left foot is a bit longer than the other. This boot fits perfectly on both feet. I appreciate that it is a bit longer than most brands the same size. It is sized 43 1/3 in instead of the normal 43 1/4 in European dimensions.

  • “i have problem feet, i really need stiff boots, how stiff r they?”
    Asked by Henry from California on 2/13/2017 3:29:57 PM
    • This Cactus is not particularly stiff. Pretty flexible, in fact. The Asolo TPS 520 is as stiff a boot as I've ever worn, and I love them both.

    • As I recall, the gusset goes to about 2 inches from the top. I sent them back, so I can't check the boots.

    • All the way to the top.
      Answered on 10/19/2015 2:03:16 PM by Danny from Nevada
    • The high part of the gusset where it attaches to the tongue is 2" to top, the high part of the gusset where it attaches to the body of boot is 2 3/8" to top and the lowest part of the gusset, in the dip or bottom of gusset fold is 2 3/4" to top. Have read where it can be intrusive but have not had a problem with that and have put around 75 miles on so far, all on a packed bike track, typically rough on feet because of speed and hammering. Had to trim the left insole at heal left just a tiny bit to keep from rubbing but fine now. If you buy them wear them around the house for a few days to get the feel of them and don't wrench the laces real tight, play around with them.

    • The gusset stops 2.25 inches short of the top of the upper on my pair.

    • Within 2 inches. I would guess, ridiculously snug at ankle. Very hard to put the boot on.

    • It is about 2 inches down from the top of the tongue

    • I am an E width and my length is 11. If I nudge up a half size on shoes it works out ok. The size upsize gives me more width but sometimes too long and the footbed may not fit either. From what I have discovered, Asolo shoes are very precise in width and length, they have a extremely high quality feel fit. I have found that the Asolo Cactus and Mantra are true to size....BUT........they are suede and they flex nicely and conform to a wider foot. I'm not sure I would try ordering my size 11 in a shoe that was less flexible. The Cactus are nicely flexible but not overly so

      Answer: I think your D+ width or even E would work well in the Cactus, just order your regular size 9 in the standard width. I think you'll be just great. I hope so! They are super nice shoes if you like Asolo.
      There are so many factors to a shoe fitting a feeling "right". I have rather flat feet but not entirely flat which makes my foot "spread" wide to an E.
      Hit me up if you have any more questions.

    • I would recommend sizing up by 1/2 size because the shoes will fit perfectly for a regular width individual. Anything wider will be a bit tight; also, the insoles are not the highest quality--these tend to bunch up in the heel area. I've replaced mine with a better quality insoles. The new insoles and sizing up made all the difference.
      These are still great shoes.

    • I these things fit like a glove. They are much more fitted"I these things fit like a glove. They are much more "fitted" than a standard hiking boot, more like a climbing shoe almost. I would guess you would want the proper width. It might be worth the gamble, I have never had shoes fit this well right out of the box, these are sweet!

    • It's a pretty narrow boot. You may want to go up a size.

    • I think so. Sometimes I find the lace to the toe boots to narrow, but these have fit me well, and I am a solid D width. They are snug to get on for me but comfornable once on, I don't lace them tight.

  • “Is size listed UK or USA?”
    Asked by Erick from Indiana on 12/31/2013 8:09:14 AM
    • Sizing is USA, however it is not accurate. The Cactus boots should be ordered a half to full size smaller than what you normally wear.
