Great boots, fit well, easy to break in. I have had a pair for one year of regular use and they still look near new. I have used them in snow, up steep trails and in the Bay Area on regular walks. Asolo owners come up and comment to me. Frontier models are good too but the Echo boot is just as good and for less money.

I'm wearing these boots as I write this, and I've worn them all day every day for the past five years!! I've never had footwear this comfortable or long lasting in my 60+ years of wearing shoes, including everything from rubber boots to heavy mountaineering boots. They aren't waterproof, but I wear them in the dirt & mud when working on our small acreage, on the tractor or wherever I'm going. They're finally starting to show their age and wear, so I ordered a new pair of Asolo Fugitives yesterday....to last the next five years. Talk about a great value, Asolo can't be beat.
“How does these boots fit compared to the FSN 95? (I wear 13W).
I wore a pair of FSN 95s in 13W for years, and they were a perfect fit. I'm curious how these compare. I don't need the Gore-tex, and especially now that STP's coupons exclude Gore-tex products, these have me curious. Thanks!”

You would also want to get a 10W in the Asolos also. The Asolo may feel a bit snugger compared to the Merrell.

“I got these boots at a great price, but I did not realize they were not gore-tex. If I use a waterproofing, such as what has been recommended, will I get similar results to what I would get if I had bought a gore-tex boot? Thank you.”

“Hi. I am interested in purchasing a pair of Asolo Echo Hiking Boots (For Men), but I am not quite sure what size I should get. My feet are 26cm long, from toe to heel, and 10cm wide, which should be a C on the Brannock device.|The shoe I wear is US 9.5, UK 8.5, or EU 43 in size. So in your opinion, should I get 9 or 9.5?”
Asked on 12/12/2012 12:00:00 AM by Jack from Unknown
You would want to order the 9.5 since it is a EU 43 (1/3) and the 9 is only a EU 42.5.

Asolo boots come in a medium(M) and wide(W) width.

David, I tried on different pairs Asolo (Gortex and Non-Gortex), in both M and W widths, and everytime the W fit better. They run narrow, compared to Merrils, Lowa's, etc. So if you are in doubt or borderline, go with the W.
