Took a little break in by wearing them once or twice a week before my first trip . The real test was a 9 day 60 mile backpacking trip in the Sierra . I have duck-like feet ( narrow heels and wide toes ) so I have a difficult time fitting boots . Blisters are S.O.P. for me . These fit great and I had...

I've been wearing this particular boot for several years. I'm hard on my boots (landscaping work) and these usually will last me about a year. I have tried a few other brands over the years and have had various stitching and upper material failures but never with this boot. These have always stayed together until I wear a hole through the sole. These have always been made in Romania and the quality of workmanship and materials shows.

I bought this from STP 3 years ago. I live in Las Vegas, so they have been in the desert, sand dunes all the way to 2' of snow, mud and some semi technical trails inred rock, Zion National park and Grand Canyon. They were great in all scenarios (of course you have to use proper socks- im fond of merino wool) feet were dry when drench in sweat at 118 degrees, so great breathing ability from them. Moreover, feet were warm and dry in snow and wet scenarios.
Great support, and the soles have an all around good grip. I do not think you could get a better bang for your buck!

The Asolo FSN Gore-Tex Hiking Boots are a great hiking boot. My first hike with these boots was through the wet trails on the Blue Hills in Massachusetts. They felt comfortable with no break-in time needed. They are a quality boot that I feel confident will last me many years.

I have owned three pairs of these and they feel great on my feet. I used them everyday in steep rugged terrain and have never gotten a blister from them. However, the double stitched seam that runs from the toe to the heel consistently comes undone rendering the boots useless. I have never had a pair that lasted more than three months of extreme use.
My feet actually created an opposite scenario. I normally wore in between 11.5 and 12.0. 12.0 fit better. I wear medium thick socks with no probs. keep an eye on toe box rubber. Mine started to break down for some mysterious reason on first pair after 3 months. Returned to stp, got credit, ordered a 2nd pair, and no probs so far after 2 months

I first went to an outdoor store which carried Asolo boots. Not this exact model and tried them on. I then ordered my first pair with no problems. I typically wear 11.5 and found them true to size.

Take out the ASOLO insole and put in and put in a thin one ( like from a hi tec shoe)

The shoes I received and have since returned were great looking and did not appear to have any errant stitches or anything that would define them as seconds. They were great looking but for me the toe box was too small around the second and third little toe and I knew on a long hike I would get battered toes.

I don't know the answer, but if they are seconds, they are better that most firsts. Derf from Washington
