I bought these to try as new backpacking boots. So far I have taken them on a trial 12 mile day hike on moderate terrain with a light pack and they were great.

This boot was so highly recommended that I was very excited about the purchase and to be sure I got the best fit ordered it in the 8.5 and the 9. I am a pretty true 8.5 but found this boot to be very snug in the toe box. The nine was a little loser and I decided to try it. I wore it with thick hiking socks around town for a few days and found that it was not very comfortable. There were pressure points on the top of the feet and in the ankles. They never went away but they lessened in intensity so I thought perhaps they just needed a longer break in period. I attempted a short hike in them and regret that I did so. I felt that my toes and heels were getting bruised despite my thick socks during a two mile walk on a soft stable terrain. My left heel is so bruised now that I can not wear anything except flip flops and the front of my right ankle despite socks is rubbed raw in one area. I will be sending both pairs back and not trying the Asolo brand again. I would not recommend this brand to anyone who needs greater arch support or narrower heels.

I bought these boots because my daughter said that these were the best hiking boots she ever had. Well, these are not comfortable for me at all. My foot felft like my ankles were in a cast, they rub against my ankles and dig into my instep when I try fo walk with a normal gait. I know the reveiws were that these were great boots. But not for me, They are on their way back.
