TL;DR: I would pick these over the Asolo Fugitives with no regrets.

I bought a pair of these and a pair of Asolo's at the same time so this review will compare the two pairs of boots. The main benefit that the Asolo's have over this pair of Hanwags is that the Asolos have better stylings. The ... Read More

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dirt Road Living from Pennsylvania on Tuesday, April 29, 2014
    I am a forester in Pennsylvania spending 6 to 8 hours daily walking rough terrain. I have tried many brands of boots.
    Hanwag craftsmanship was evident right out of the box. So good I ordered a second pair. Some of the reviews recommended
    ordering a half size larger so I did. I'm between a US 9.5 and 10, so I ordered the 9 UK. I think I would have been fine with
    An 8.5 UK (9.5 US). But with 2 two pairs of socks they feel great. Lightweight and the vibram sole is great for slippery rocks
    and logs. I will be looking for a Hanwag winter boot.

    I was looking for a lighter alternative to my heavy all-leather backpacking boots for when I'm a carrying a lighter load.
    These Hanwag's appear to fill that need.
    Very comfortable with reduced weight but good support.
    I haven't owned them long enough to evaluate longevity or waterproofness.

    Be sure to correctly decipher the sizing chart.

    I ordered the 42(US 10) and 43(US 10.5) Euro sizes just to be sure of the fit. I had measured my feet closely and fell somewhere around a US 10 and maybe a little more. The 43 felt good but had excessive heal slippage which would probably get worse the more I wore them. The 42 feels a little snug on the top outside of both feet and the toe box is not as roomy. So, they are running pretty close to true to size. They are loosening up bit by bit and I hope they loosen up some more before I get serious with them. Smartwool PhD socks with thick padding seem to help. I have been walking in them between 2 and 4 miles a a day for a week or two. I put green Superfeet in them and the jury is still out on whether they will stay in or not. The lacing system is very good and the tongue is a full length leather gusset of ample thickness. Anyhow, the overall quality is good and the weight is 1.5 Lb per pair lighter than the beloved 16 yr old Scarpas that came before them. As I get older I find it prudent to shed pounds wherever possible. Scarpa's abysmal customer service steered me away from them on this purchase. I know I won't get 16 yrs out of these but then again I didn't pay 300 bucks for them either. If I get anything over 5 I will be happy with them.

    These are high quality boots. I was very impressed. I wear a size 8.5 US and based on other reviews here, I ordered the UK size 8. They fit perfectly.
    Thanks.

    • Answer This is a hard question to answer. My bike riding days are in the past. I will address the question this way. The Hanwag Dakota boot is extremely
      .comfortable right from the start. They are not heavy or cumbersome, not too stiff, but very supportive and protective They are a big boot. Don't
      mistake them for something light weight and flimsy. However, they do not inhibit my movement. I can walk out in my pasture. Climb onto my backhoe.
      Turn quickly, and go into the kitchen and cook some eggs. And not feel uncomfortable. But would you have a good tactile relationship with the bike
      pedal, I don't know. Give it a try. STP offers them at an exceptional price. Good luck!

    • Answer Boots are good medium duty hiking boots. They will protect your feet. Need to watch out for deep lugs getting hung up on pedals. If you are doing way more riding than walking I would think about other options. They are great for hiking.

    • Answer These boots have a shank. Essentially the bottom of the foot is lashed by the laces to a relatively stiff sole. This type of boot helps prevent sprained ankles when hiking on uneven terrain, like rocks. Also they have a waterproof liner.I don't know how this would work out for riding a bike.

    • Answer the sole is quite thick so you may have to adjust your toe clip. otherwise they are a stiff enough boot to lend well to bike riding
