  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by RiverRunnin from Olympic Peninsula Hoh River Rainforest on Monday, December 15, 2014
    When I bought my first pair, a salesman told me if I wore them everyday they would last me 3 years. He was wrong, they lasted me 7 years. I used them for work at first (in cellular tower industry). Then wore them hiking and working my property in the Hoh River Rainforest. Then they turned into my hunting boots due to how waterproof they were. When they finally started to fail (year 7) the tread was almost gone and falling off and then finally my foot got wet. I ordered another pair from Sierra Trading Post, they got here on time and were a fraction of the price of anywhere else I shopped. I'm looking forward to another 7 years! Thank you S.T.P

    • Answer I use spenco green 3/4 length inserts in my neutrons. Try to find the all foam ones as opposed to the hard plastic version. They raise the heel at first yet will "break in" and the heel and forfoot will sink a bit. Love my spencos for my very high arches. Good luck!

    • Answer I am pretty flat footed these days too. When you say arch support... usually a shoe with too high of an arch because of the insert hurts my feet which are flatter than most. So if heal and toe are good for you, it sounds like there is to high of an arch in the insole. There is a number of insoles out there but the ones that our crew has liked is a gel insert or an insert that you microwave and then stand on it in the shoe. That would give you a little less arch and may help your arches.. which are flat. Local stores like Bass Pro or Sports Authority have kiosk's that will fit you properly.

      The fit of a boot can be changed with the way it is laced as well. Try different patters with your laces and see if they conform to your foot better. Try this... http://www.backpacker.com/gear/footwear/hiking-boots/common-hiking-boot-lacing-techniques/

    • Answer I Liked the first pair so much I bought a second pair. I too am pretty flat footed. To remedy the arch support issue I took out the original insole and replaced it with "SuperFeet" foot support. SuperFeet products are expensive, ca $35 but worth every dime. Good luck

    • Answer Markdouglas here - I stopped at a big box sports store and tried the different colors of Superfeet. I liked the black which gives a bit more arch support than the boot. I needed to get over $100 for free shipping on an STP order so I added the black Superfeet and should have them in a week or so. I'll follow up after my next hike with the inserts.
      Thanks for all the quick responses on the boots and the inserts, STP rocks!

    • Answer Sorry I can't give you more specific advice on arch supports, but I'm wondering if you have the same problem with all your shoes (street shoes, running shoes, etc.). If that's the case, you might want to consult a podiatrist about custom orthotics. Just a thought for what it's worth.

    • Answer 6 years In the Army, all in the Infantry, carrying a heavy rucksack. I have hiked Moab, Arches, Kolob Canyon, The Wave, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Smokey mountains, Bryce Canyon, and all over Colorado and upstate New York. As a Combat Medic in the 10th Mountain Division I treated more foot & knee problems than anything else. Often having to treat my own foot problems.
      The best insole is "Tuli's Energy Tracks" full length insole, 2nd choice is the 3/4 length Tuli's carbon fiber "Gaitor" insole. After Tuli's Brand insoles my next choice is "Sorbothane" but theses are better for shock absorption and the arch support is only marginally better than the Asolo insole.

      Get some Smartwool 20 to 30 mm Hg compression socks!!! These alone will reduce foot fatigue and pain by increasing circulation. I have bought several from STP and exclusively wear Smartwool Compression Socks every day. If your feet aren't happy you aren't happy.

    • Answer I have a similar size foot - used to wear 13s but now they are often too small. I got these in 14 and they have been great, definitely not too big. I got them this summer and have backpacked and done peaks in them and they have been comfortable.

    • Answer Hi Markdouglas, I feel that these are true to size. I actually tried the Asolo brand on at a local store to get the right fit. You don't want too much room in the toe if you are doing serious hiking. Too much = banged up toes on the downslope. I found that superfeet inserts made a WORLD of difference and a perfect fit. If I was to guess I would say to go with a 14 with inserts to snug it up. Hope this helps.

    • Answer I wear a size 11 M in 90% + of the shoes I wear, including Merrill and NB. I originally purchased a size 11 in these boots. Wore around house and felt fine. Wore on 2 hikes of a couple of hours each, still fine. Then wore on a 25 mile 2 day hike which involved a large elevation changes (Tetons). I developed terrible blisters on both heals from slippage. Returned (thanks STP for fantastic service) and replaced with 10 1/2. These fit snug so I am hoping they solve the blistering problem but have not had an opportunity to verify yet.
      Others have commented on narrow width so be carful if wide foot. Based on my experience I would not go longer than normal shoe.
      Hope this helps.

    • Answer I usually wear an 8 1/2 medium, but because others said they thought these ran narrow, I ordered the wide and the fit for me was great, both length and width. Have hiked 10 over 4000 footers the past few weeks with zero fit or foot problems and ordered a second pair for backup. Make your best guess and give them a try. Sierra makes returns for exchange or credit super easy.
      Answered on 10/23/2014 10:11:54 AM by LorenzoJ from Massachusetts
    • Answer Likely your best bet is to buy them and return if they don't fit well enough. I would not say they are significantly wider in the toe box than other hikers. I find that many Italian boots, including my Asolos (even if made elsewhere) seems to have a narrower heel hold which is why they may be considered as having a relative wider toe box. In general I really like all my Asolo's; they fit my foot - also a narrower shape - quite well. I don't recall if these comes in different widths.

    • Answer I wear a 12 EEE Asolo Neutron and LOVE them. I wear a 13 EEE NewBalance MO900 hiking boot, the 12.5 EEE was too small.
      I bought the 13 EEE first--too big--sent them back new pair arrived in 2 weeks
      I love the stiffer plastic shank that these boots have below the foot bed, less flex for scrambling but way less foot pain and fatigue on long walks. I usually hike 5 to 15 miles a day in the Neutron and will not wear anything else.

      Buy the Asolo Neutron, Sierra Trading Post sends you a return form and a return shipping label.
      Answered on 10/23/2014 11:54:41 AM by W from Atlanta
    • Answer I would say the neutron in a 13 may work for you. I haven't worn vasque in years but I wear the same size in the neutron as most other shoes. I have a narrow heel/ankle and broader forefoot and these fit quite well. These seem slightly roomier than my last asolos.
      Answered on 10/23/2014 1:02:45 PM by Jerome from CO
    • Answer I can squeeze my foot into a 13 with toe touching inside of toe box in most brands so I size up. My recent purchase of Asolo Nuetrons had great line up with the arch and the width across ball was perfect. I had replaced a pair of 95's which were sized a bit smaller and required extended break in. so far very happy with the choice of size 14
      Answered on 10/23/2014 2:03:33 PM by mrbull from central colorado
    • Answer Buying boots without trying them on is always a gamble. However, my boots were right sized out of the box. I'd recommend sizing up to allow for heavier hiking socks, more room in the toe box, and foot swelling during hiking. Fortunately, Sierra Trading Post is very good about exchanges if they don't fit.
      Answered on 10/23/2014 2:20:44 PM by EGC from Missouri Ozarks
    • Answer Hi there Mark - I got the size 12 neutron in the wide fitting but found them about what I think would be half a size small. I usually take 46 euro but these are 46 2/3 but still too short. The width is great but I brought the wide fitting and I have wide feet so get away with the length ok if only doing short hikes but wouldn't use them on overnight trips would want the next size up. The wide fitting is almost too wide for me and if I had the next side up would be likely to get the standard width given I believe they would be slightly too long and with the narrower fitting would probably give me a better fit. With that all said I wonder if the 14 would be a similar issue for you Mark given your fitting with the Vasque sounds same as fitting for the neutron.
      Hope my long winded theory helps you out... Cheers Moff

    • Answer I wear a dress shoe in a size 12. I have a fuller foot so in boots I buy a 13. in a hiking b/work boot the last thing you need is your toes to hit the end. get the 14.
      if they are a little big, use a smartwool sock to tighten them up. or get a pr of superfeet insoles to tighten them up.
      Answered on 10/23/2014 5:05:19 PM by geo. from michigan
    • Answer The boots do run a bit on the narrow side from toe to heel and about half a size small. You might want to consider ordering a couple of different sizes and just return the one you don't keep. Sure, you'll pay a few bucks for returning shipping but you'll have the right sized boots. Once you get the right boot, you should be very happy.
      Answered on 10/24/2014 8:10:21 PM by SMCTFORPCFOD from California
    • Answer Feet are the one thing on a hiking/hunting trip you have to take care of. For me personally, the Asolo Neutrons fits my foot better than any other that I have tried on or worn. The toe box is snug on my foot. I want it that way for descents on trails. The Asolos also have the heel-to-ankle synching laces that support not only the ankle, but helps hold the boot in place on your foot. As far as the one size bigger, that would be a personal preference. I buy my work boots one size bigger one size narrower, but I am not walking on much of ascent/descent surfaces. It is flat and lots of steps. For the trails, I fit it snug, both length and width. Hope this helped. Happy Hiking!
      Answered on 10/25/2014 6:17:50 AM by Mountain Man Milt from West Virginia
    • Answer I found the boot to be true to size, therefore I stuck to my normal shoe size. I did however, find that the boot was quite roomy in the toe box, i then added a pair of "Superfeet " insoles in place of the standard insoles and the boots fit like a glove. These boots were very comfortable right out of the box. I tried on a pair of Asolo Drifters which are very similar to these boots and made my size/fit decision based on the way that boot fit. My suggestion for you is to try on a pair of Drifters and make your sizing/fit decision the same way I did. Bruce
      Answered on 10/29/2014 1:47:34 PM by Bruce Bailey from Seattle, WA
    • Answer "I have a somewhat narrow foot but wider at the toes." then the Asolo Neutron will speak to you

      A few things to be aware of:
      - Merrell offers both standard & wide widths
      - New Balance offers footwear in multiple widths ranging from narrow (2A) to extra-extra-wide (6E)
      - Timberland & Vasque offer boots including both medium (M) & wide (W)

      In your case, the Asolo Neutron has a roomy toe box and a snug heal & can be bought Wide. I agree with the half size up ..... so 14 appears to be a good fit for you.

      Good Luck & Happy Trails

    • Answer 7 1/2" from the floor
      Answered on 8/30/2014 1:27:50 PM by LorenzoJ from Norwood, MA
    • Answer It depends on where you measure. From the bottom of the sole at the heel to the highest point on the ankle is approximately 7.5 inches. The Vibram sole at the point is about 0 .75 inches thick. Measured at the back, from the bottom of the Vibram sole to the top of the ankle, is 6.25 inches, and the sole is 0.5 inches thick. Those are the measurements on my boots. There may be some variation, but I wouldn't expect too much difference. Hope that helps.

    • Answer Darn, I'm out of town and unsure. I would guess from the floor... I'm 5'6" and they're not too high if that's your concern.

      I'm recently back from 4 days backpacking (38lbs) in the Western Sierras with my son. The boots were perfect!
      Great ankle support, not too heavy, really sticky on day hike days with bouldering and scrambling.. No rubbing, blisters or bruises..

      And I run up local hills in them every day.

    • Answer I walk two to four miles over rocky terrain almost every day. The soles are tough. They are a little slippery on wet concrete or asphalt, but for hiking on a trail over rough terrain its a good choice. I wear my boots everywhere except to church.
      Answered on 7/16/2014 10:23:00 AM by hiker from Texas from Texas
    • Answer I cannot speak to the long term durability of the soles. They do, as many, seem to have very good grip but this might make the material less durable in the long run. I wear my boots mostly on pavement and the soles are usually the first to go. These show minimal wear so far but I'm sure that given the way I use my boots, the uppers will outlast the soles.

    • Answer I can't answer this with authority. My last Asolo boots were FSN95 and after 4 years of heavy use were starting to look pretty worn. The Neutron's seem to have a soft compound but I cannot judge the longevity of the sole yet.
      Answered on 7/16/2014 3:30:03 PM by Thomas from Franklin, TN
    • Answer Can't truthfully say how durable they are. Have only had for a couple of months and hiked about 25-30 miles. No problems so far.
      Answered on 7/16/2014 3:51:37 PM by Fisher Frank from Montana
    • Answer As I have only had the boots for one and a half months, I cannot attest to the longevity of the Vibram sole. However, my training environment consists of sandy trails and lots of sharp rocks the have tendency to rip out large chunks of the sole. I just looked at my soles and they were completly intact. The soles are a bit soft, but that helps to absorb some of the shock, So far, I haven't seen this as a drawback to the sole's durability. Hope it helps and hike safe.

    • Answer I get about 14 months of daily hard use on the job, the sole is usually 1/2 used up then. The grip is good for this model and flex isn't too rigid.

    • Answer I am on my third pair of Asolos. I get two or three years out of a pair, wearing them for daily one-two mile walks on pavement, and hard use doing farm work. Tough Vibrams. Ongoing pair two years old and looking like new.
      Answered on 7/18/2014 5:58:27 PM by Junkman from Pennsylvania
    • Answer They are holding up better than most other vibrams, and I haven't had any traction issues.

    • Answer I have not owned Powermatic but all three pairs of my Asolos have been true to size; size 10 in my case.

    • Answer I found the fit to be the same.
      Answered on 4/28/2014 5:02:50 PM by Ranger from GA
    • Answer My best guess is that you would want a wide Neutron if you wear a wide Powermatic. I think the Neutron would be lighter and cooler because they don't have full leather uppers. Other than that, someone who has actually owned a pair of Powermatics could answer this question much better.
      They are certainly more expensive than the Neutrons.

    • Answer I find these boots to fit very similar to the 95s. More support though.
      Answered on 4/23/2014 2:11:03 PM by Tahoe Stove Guy from Truckee
    • Answer You'll probably want to go with the wide width again, as these seem to be the same frame as the FSN95 boot, which I've had as well.
      Answered on 4/23/2014 2:16:21 PM by Shortie D. from Nor Cal
    • Answer The width is spot on! Fits like a glove, beautifully. Order the size you normally wear.
      Answered on 4/23/2014 2:31:04 PM by Rebel from Pennsylvania
    • Answer I usually wear mediums and these boots are just fine width wise for me. I would not have wanted them in a wide.
      Answered on 4/23/2014 2:54:14 PM by Teton Tim from Michigan
    • Answer Stick with the wide for the Neutron boots. Mine fit exactly like the FSN95's. Wide is a better fit for medium feet in the Asolo boots.
      Answered on 4/23/2014 3:25:41 PM by hiker from Texas from Texas
    • Answer For me, the Medium width is perfect. These fit great with my medium weight Smart Wool hiking sock. My feet have not felt smashed or had hot spots along the sides. I also buy a medium width in all my other shoes, so these have been no different in terms of width and feel. I'm happy.
      Answered on 4/23/2014 3:55:08 PM by Curt W. from Colorado
    • Answer I wear a EE sometimes EE width. I got Wide and a half size larger and it fits perfectly... So I' guess the medium would probably work for you...
      Answered on 4/23/2014 3:57:57 PM by Run /Packk from Studio City, CA
    • Answer I would say a "true medium" and just a touch wider than the FSN95s. The FSN95s I had fit like a glove but I've noticed a hair more room in the toe box area of the Neutrons. I wear a medium width in all other shoes I own and the Neutron's have broken in and fit like a medium. I would compare them for you but the FSN95s were discarded two weeks ago after a bed bug encounter while traveling on business (at a nice hotel too). I replaced them with the Moran model which have more substantial padding and are a more rugged boot with some upgrades here and there.

      I just saw another Neutron review that says they run big so why not go for the medium?
      Answered on 4/23/2014 4:46:54 PM by Thomas from Franklin, TN
    • Answer I purchased medium width so they are snug I could have gone with wide. I don't really do much hiking so it doesn't concern me too much. I only use them to walk around town. If your a serious hiker who needs wide then get them in wide.

      Answered on 4/23/2014 7:53:31 PM by Junkman from Pensylvania
    • Answer I normally were medium and got these in the medium and they're fine. Your results may vary. For what it's worth I find them roomier than my prior boots which were North Face but narrower than the Garmont boots I ordered here and had to return because they were too wide.

    • Answer The Neutron's I have are a little wider than the FSN95's I have had. I always ordered the wide size in the FSN95's which fit OK, but there is more room in the Neutrons.

    • Answer My Asolo's are medium and very comfortable. I do have a somewhat narrow foot however and have never worn anything but mediums.
      Answered on 4/24/2014 5:45:31 PM by Vic from Masss
    • Answer Please forgive my tardiness but I've had a sick pup. I cannot give you a specific answer to your question. However, I'll answer as well as I can. I found both the Asolo shoes and boots I've bought to be a bit wider than other hiking shoes in the medium width. I ordered the medium width in the Asolo Matra GV Approach shoe and found the medium width to be the same as my Asolo Neutron Gore-Tex Hiking Boots. Generally the Asolo length and width were just a bit larger in both directions, a little more than a "C-H" both ways. Compared to the Vasque Rift Approach Shoes they were, as said, a bit larger both in length and width. The Asolo fit me perfectly. As an aside: for years I had worn an 11 "B" in dress shoes. About ten years ago, I found that a 10 "D" worked better for most of my dress shoes, e.g. in Johnston & Murphy lace-ups, loafers, even driving shoes. In my Lucchese ostrich and lizard boots, I wear a 10 1/2 "D" perfectly. Therefore, you really have to try on shoes/boots and check out the instep, width, length, heel slippage, etc. on BOTH feet. Sorry to be long-winded, but this old history prof is a stickler for precision.

      Answered on 4/13/2014 11:54:44 AM by Internet Mom from NC
    • Answer Yes, they are removable. It is easier to remove them by prying on the instep side of the insole. Reach inside the boot, and pry on the right side of the insole of the left boot. To remove the insole from the right boot, pry on the left side of the insole. They are easily removed, and you can replace them with whatever is the most comfortable for your particular foot.

    • Answer Thanks all! I think I get it now since responses are not 100% in sync. It's not really meant to have a removable insole (not mentioned in description or specs), and may be lightly affixed (or not), but fairly easy to pull out and replace, or keep and add an arch support underneath it.

    • Answer My first pair of Asolos were FSN-95's. I wore them for 5 years and still use them but the soles are worn, so mom ordered me these Neutron boots for christmas. These soles seem to grip really good, they are more comfortable than my old pair, but I have not worn them in the woods yet, or hiked miles in them yet. I've just worn them for normal daily wear so far. They were comfortable from the beginning.
      Answered on 1/8/2014 6:22:51 PM by Internet Mom from NC
    • Answer Hi,
      I find the soles stiff enough.
      I recently used the shoe on rocky himalayan trek full of rock, gravel, mud, jungle, snow.

      Never did I feel the sole transferring the shocks inside or the rock edges pressurising my foot.
      I would say the sole is tough.

      Still that would remain a personal choice based on the terrain that I faced.
      I would be better if you walk into a STP shop and try them personally.

      Cheers!
