Closeouts. Asolo's Lhasa Gore-Tex® backpacking boots are the boots that separate serious backpackers from casual hikers. They're made to perform on the longest, most rugged ascents and descents with waterproof breathable performance, a protective 7" height and a sturdy, supportive Vibram® outsole.

Great looking well made boot. A little narrow in the toe but are breaking in nicely. I have been using them as an everday work boot and for hiking/hunting, I have even worn them snowshoeing. Performance has been excellent.

Spent 5 weeks on the Channel Islands off the California coast hiking in and out of canyons, up mountains and along the sea, dawn until dusk, seven days per week. Some nasty, steep terrain involved. Great support. Great protection. Excellent grip on wet rocks. I've worn Asolo for over 10 years and the Lhasa does exactly what you'd expect from a top shelf boot.

They have different features and are also from different model years.

I've read that the lhasa boot has a higher cut than the saslong. Can't find specs, but the Asolo web site's pictures show that this is probably true. Note also that the ankle of the lhasa has additional construction features. Guessing this is to increase flexibility.

“Do you have the Lhasa in a size 10US wide fit or the 10.5 in a wide fit?”
