Closeouts. Asolo's Power Matic 250 nubuck backpacking boots are supportive enough for long days on the trail and tough enough to tackle the roughest terrain. The Power Matic sole utilizes three different polyurethane densities to maximize stability and reduce fatigue.
Nubuck upper with gusseted tongue that helps keep out dirt and debris
Removable EVA-cushioned footbed
High-density EVA midsole provides maximum stability
Medium-density heel reduces shock and resulting fatigue
Vibram® rubber outsole with high-density arch area for superior support

I like these boots. They have a supportive ankle and nice soles. Insole is not what I would like in a backpacking boot. Other than that they look and feel good. They are a little stiff initially but work out fairly quickly. Also not waterproof, I haven't gotten them very wet yet so I;m not sure how they will be in heavy moisture.

I buy a new pair of hiking boots each season. I work for a land management agency and do a lot of hiking and backpacking. I had another pair of asolos and they were awesome so I decided to try these. So far so good.

Comfortable, good ankle support and protection, "water resistant" = water just runs off, but not "water proof" which I mean you can go wading with them. Best use is back packing, hiking, climbing in skree
There are many differences between the 535 and 250 backpacking boots. One of which being that the 535 is sized for men, and the 250 is sized for women. They both use a removable EVA insole, however the 250 uses a high-density EVA midsole for stability while the 535 uses a shock-absorbing EVA midsole. They both use a Vibram rubber outsole, but the 250 uses an extra high-density arch for support, while the 535 uses a Vibram with Asobrake. The 535 weights 6 ounces more than the 250's 3lb 2 oz. The only other notable difference is that the 250 runs true to size, and the 535 runs small, so in order to get a true to size fit you'd have to get 1/2 size larger than you normally would.

“What is the total height of these boots - from bottom of the sole to top of the boot in the back?”
