    I love these boots and not only are they comfortable and supportive but very good looking & I have received many compliments on them. They do run at least 1/2 size large. I could probably have gone down another 1/2 size but since I got them for hikihg I am happy using my thick socks with which they fit very well. You could also add an insert to make slightly smaller. They are completely waterproof and give excellent ankle support which I need,

    I have narrow feet and heard that Asolo boots run narrow. These fit me well and don't let my feet slip and slide, which is the problem I have with many shoes. I tried them out on a 6 mile hike and love them; I had been hiking in running shoes so these boots were a huge improvement, with good grip and ankle protection. The grommets at the top are plastic (or plastic coated?) but the first one is metal so it has the strength to cinch when lacing up the boots. The boots are waterproof (confirmed by my experience!) and breathe well.

    As usual, with Asolo's awesome full-tilt hiking boots, these Sharp Goretex winners are sensational. No excruciating wearing-in, light and welcoming instantly, these guys are fantastic climbing, descending, in rocky loose ground, over large slippery boulders, and for pleasant Sunday afternoon strolls in the park. Brilliant!

    I've had a pair of Asolo boots for the past 4 years and needed a replacement. I'm very happy with this boot. It has a great tread and is very comfortable (especially after adding Superfeet). The toe box in Asolo boots tends to run tight (I had a size 10 in my old boots), so I tried a 10.5 this time around and it's great. A little roomy overall, but I'd much rather have boots with plenty of room than too tight. Thus I would recommend ordering true to size or one half size up.

    I really wanted to like these boots since I've had two other pairs of Asolos that I've loved, but these just didn't do it for me. Regarding size, I should have paid more attention to other reviews, so the fact the size 7 1/2 I bought were much too large (though my usual size) I can't complain too much about that. The main problem I had was that they were so high or tall that they rubbed on my ankles. I had to return these.

    Great boot for comfort and sturdiness for hiking and rock scrambling. I wear a street shoe of 7 or 7.5 and I ordered these in a 7 which had breathing room so be aware they run large. And are they stylish - listen even when hiking style counts! They were wearable straight from the box so no break-in time was needed. I had Asolos before and switched and switched right back to them again! I am a life time fan! Enjoy.

    the boots get an A+ for lightness, looks, and an A for quality - at least from what I can tell in the short time I had them. But they were SO uncomfortable. the bottoms were stiff and hard - my feet were burning and hurting after two hours of just regular walking on grass and dirt. I can't imagine hiking rough terrain in them. I expected more cushioning. needless to say, they went back!!! the search continues for a comfortable hiking boot....kudos to sierra trading for making the return process so easy!!!

    Bought these boots for a trip to Alaska. These are great boots. Very comfortable and very little break in time. The first day was able to wear all day without any soreness.

    I give these five stars for look, construction, and the fact that they are so lightweight. But honestly, my motorcycle boots are more comfortable. After two hours my feet started burning, and the sole was so hard it was painful to walk. The comment about sizing is true. I wear a9 but ordered a 8 1/2 and they fit perfectly. I just couldn't wear them. Thank you Sierra trading for making the return so easy!!

    I love this boot but couldn't keep it because I have to wear an ankle-foot orthodic (brace), and most boots do not fit over the brace, this one included. I was really bummed that these didn't work for me because of my brace. They are such a nice looking boot

    My husband has been wearing Asolo Gore-Tex Hiking Boots for about 10 years and really have had no problems with his feet while hiking. He has now starting working in his old pair because he just bought a new pair to hike. He said they are the most comfortable shoe he has ever worn and his feet doesn't get hot at all. I bought a pair recently but haven't had much time to wear them, but will be wearing pretty soon. Spring hasn't sprung here yet, because it is still cold, snowy, and rainy. Just as soon as the weather warms up I will also be wearing mine. That you so much or carrying these hiking boots and we have gotten them for a very good price.

    Thank you so much for the discounts.

    I originally bought another Asolo style, which just didn't feel right, so I exchanged them (easy returns, thank you Sierra!) for these, which fit beautifully, no break-in period needed. I have very narrow feet (AAAA/AAAAAA in street shoes), so am not particularly easy to fit for hiking boots, but these work great, my heel stays put, plenty of room for my toesies. Couldn't be happier. Nor could my feet.

    I loved the quality, but I have bad bunions and there was not enough room in the toe box for me.

    It is my first Asolo brand boots. Even it is not one of their top line, build quality is great. Very comfortable. Water proofing really works.

    I have purchased Asolo's for over 14 years now. I need a boot that has little no break in time and has a roomy toe box. This is it. They wear incredible good. The last pair I purchased was 6 years ago and they are just wearing out. I put them through H+^^L Through muddy pastures to rivers, streams and snow. They never failed to keep my feet warm and dry.

    I have another everyday use Asolo and these are for hiking and snow.

    I would recommend these boots to anyone. They run true to size. I get a 7 so I can wear liners and mid-to heavy socks. It works great.

    I bought these boots to begin my adventures in backpacking! I wore them around the house cleaning then to work a 16 hr shift one night at the hospital...that was my break in period before the first big hike. We hiked a total of 22 miles in two days and I have to say these were pretty darn comfortable, so much more than I expected! I did develop a couple blisters the second day but I think that had a lot to do with my socks being a little too big and slipping. And the day after we got back one of my ankles was pretty swollen but I had mis stepped on a rock creek crossing then hiked another 5 hrs so I'm sure that didn't help the matter. Also my pinky toes rubbed a little but no hot spots so that is just going to take some more breaking in :) All in all I am VERY happy with this purchase! And an added bonus is that they are super cute :)

    spent 2 days hiking in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains of NH, much of the time over boulders often wet from rain or run off, with minimal break in. Boots were great, never slipped. No blisters or problems. Feet felt great (and I often have difficulty finding shoes or boots which are really comfortable.)

    These are my third pair of Asolo hiking boots. I have never gotten a blister while wearing Asolo boots. I've worn this particular model on two rigorous day hikes so far to break them in for two significant Sierra Nevada backpacking trips and my feet remained very comfortable from start to finish. They are lightweight, yet sturdy and gripped well on some very smooth granite.

    My first hike out of the box was a late Fall 14er - these boots performed beautifully and comfortably with no "break-in" period needed. Went from 60 degrees at the base to about 30 degrees and some ice and snow at the top. Sole was supple enough to handle the uneven, rocky terrain, traction was very good on the slicker spots. Boot was very comfortable throughout temperature range.

    I am finally hiking in the swiss Alps in these Aslo Sharp Gore-Tex boots and they are wonderful. We encountered some deep snow on a rather steep incline going down the mountain. My feet stayed warm and the soles were aggressive enough so that I did not slip. There were no sore spots anywhere on my feet after two days of aggressive hiking.

    Light weight and seems to have good support (so far). Comfortable out of the box but may replace insoles (read in a Men's boot review that this is a good idea).

    These boots are great for every day wear in snowy, cold winter conditions. They aren't bulky but provide good traction and keep feet warm. They must run a 1/2 size or so bigger because the size 11 feets me perfectly, I usually wear an 11.5 womens. I also plan to wear these boots when snow-shoeing.
