    I got these for my boyfriend, who had ankle surgery a few years back and has to have high top boots so they don't rub against his scar/make his ankle sore. They are very VERY sturdy boots and are very handsome. They are true to size, and I highly recommend them.

  • Reviewed by forrest the trail worker from idaho on Monday, January 25, 2016
    usually wear 11.5 and a EE in fitted boots. i sized up to 12 and got the wide.
    has been the most comfortable boot i have ever owned. i have put hundreds of miles on mine. The vibram sole is as expected pretty awesome, not very good on ice however. after they have been good and broken in they start to make some funny noises. I'm assuming its the GTX layer, but it sounds like the predators' clicks when i walk. little annoying, also a little cool.

    This is my second pair of Asolo boots in 7 years (last pair lasted that long!) till the soles wore out. I love these boots they are comfortable from first use, warm and light. Not to mention great style. I would always recommend getting wide unless you have very narrow feet or don't want to wear extra socks in the extreme cold. There a lot more to say but thats the basics.

  • Question “How do these compare to the Asolo Flame?”
    Asked on 2/7/2016 12:38:02 PM by pinewoodbill from colorado
    • Answer To me they are very similar boots . They both fit the same and feel the same. It's just the look. The flames were the first pair of asolo I owned. They were great!!! It's just the look you are looking for.
      Answered on 2/7/2016 7:45:08 PM by KirkNY from Queens, NY
    • Answer I haven't worn the flames but they are described as being somewhat heavier but with softer, dual-density soles. this is the one short-coming of the neutrons. I wear them every day, but I notice they are not as comfortable as the old fsn-95s due to the rigid vibram soles. wear cushy insoles and socks or go with the heavier boot and exchage them if needed.

      Answered on 2/7/2016 9:46:34 PM by Flatcoat smith from n.w. washington
    • Answer First, I haven't worn the Flame yet, but specs are very similar. Both are waterproof, gore-tex, non-insulated, 6" tall and suede/synthetic construction. Differences are Flame weighs 3lb 2oz and the heel is 1.25" high, Neutron weighs 2lb 13oz and 1.5" heel height. Asolo makes geat shoes, hands down, aside from cost difference, both models are a solid choice for hiking! Hope this helps

    • Answer Flame don't have Vibram sole. Flame have the titanium lace eyes all the way up. I would go with the Vibram sole, there is a reason they are used on so many different well known brands. My advice on either is to buy the wide, they run narrow as a standard.
      Answered on 2/8/2016 10:28:17 AM by Ryan from Asheville, NC
    • Answer The main difference is the Vibram outsole and the weight per pair.
      Answered on 2/8/2016 1:34:01 PM by Product Specialist Greg from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer not sure if anyone could answer this specifically, however my experience is that they run small. i usually wear 11.5 EE and went with the 12 wide. it has been the most comfortable boot i have owned. If there is unwanted contact in the toe area my thought would be to size up.
      Answered on 1/25/2016 6:36:38 PM by forrest the trail worker from idaho
    • Answer -- I should also add that length wise the 11's are possibly a touch too long and my left foot might be positioned slightly off due to that and therefore rubbing. Heavy socks, light socks, neither fix the rubbing at the flex point issue.
      Answered on 1/25/2016 6:49:31 PM by Jake the Snake from PNW
    • Answer 1. work the boot with your hands to soften the leather around the metal lacing hardware - also feel the inside to see if there is an improperly sewn seam.
      2. try another pair or another style - if you wear the 11-r's, you might try the wide's and thicker socks.
      everyones feet are different, I have worn asolo's (wide) for 20 years, I replace the inserts with my orthotics and wear medium-thick merino hiking socks over thin liners. this system has kept me blister-free. it can also help to work the inside of the boots with your thumbs briefly and wearing them around town daily before doing any big miles.
      Answered on 1/25/2016 7:14:08 PM by Flatcoat smith from n.w. washington
    • Answer The toebox on wide is roomier side to side, but won't change the length. I would recommend size 11 wide and compensate with a little thicker sock. Tight or rubbing in a hiking boot, can make for a pretty uncomfortable endeavor. Hope this helps.

    • Answer Tried the Drifter's at REI a couple of times and the regular 10 1/2 fit me fine. Never had to get a wide before but decided on the 10 1/2 wide Neutron basing my decision on other reviews indicating that they are narrower than normal. Glad I did as they fit me perfectly. So I'd have to conclude that Neutrons are indeed on the narrow side. Fit is very similar but the Drifter felt stiffer and may require a bit of breaking-in.

    • Answer We haven't tried the new style, my boyfriend does say that these boots (Asolo Neutron Gore- Tex) are a bit heavy but other then that he really likes them. I hope this was helpful.
      Answered on 12/14/2015 5:00:58 AM by luzzbear2000 from Hudson Valley New York
    • Answer i havent worn the drifter but have been wearing asolo wide-fit boots for almost 20 years. i liked the neutrons so much i bought a second pair (see my reviews). i wear mine everyday and am even happier with the fit now that my orthotics are seated properly. people should wear a good cushioned sock and size up if needed. yes they are slightly heavier than the lighter weight models like the good old FSN-95's (and i believe in wearing as light a boot as possible without sacrificing comfort or stability and support) but they are still the best selection on stp - my advice is try on the different models at a local outfitter (REI) and order them from STP. good hiking

    • Answer I just received my 10.5 wide Asolo Neutron. I wear 10.5 EE (New Balance EE fit perfectly). This boots are tight! Note that my boots do not state 10.5 Wide, EE, or anything, but the tag and the box say "wide fit". I had a pair of Asolo Scaffel that were wider than these. Very nice boots, but considering if they will stretch or if I will have to return because they are too tight.

Should not be a problem for you. Be sure to check your email for a discount coupon, I got my boots for $99 plus shipping and tax which added about $25. Still a good deal.

    • Answer The six inch height is from the bottom base of the foot..Eight inches from the ground. [ note ] I don't know your hiking ability or your size you wear. So as for myself I get up to 4 to 9 altitude hikes and sometimes with snow and Ice. And ordered a wide in my size due to climate change to compensate for thick socks. A med size boot does wear in a good snug fit (I experienced a no break in period) and doesn't leave much for thick socks. Just thought I mention this for I have both size neutron boots in different colors.

    • Answer I only own the Neutron but I read the Synchro outsole is better for downhill traction. They look very similar.
      Answered on 3/15/2015 8:03:03 PM by floridajoe from FL
    • Answer The only difference I can see is the Synchro has a cordura nylon upper and the Neutron has a nylon mesh upper. The Synchro says it has a rubber outsole and the Neutron says it has a vibram rubber outsole. The Neutron info on the web site doesn't say it has a removeable insole but I have a pair of Neutrons and the insole comes out. The weight is the same for both of them. If you are interested in reducing weight look at the Horizon boots. They are 8 ounces lighter per pair and the only difference I can see is the heel is 1 1/4" high vs. 1 1/2" high on the Neutron and Synchro. If you are hiking each ounce on your feet is equivalent to 6 ounces in your pack. So that half pound off your feet is the same as taking 3 pounds off your back.

    • Answer The Difference is style. No matter witch one you choose? You'll still come out

      Answered on 3/15/2015 9:21:45 PM by u.p.s Mike from New Jersey
    • Answer Very similar, and fit is nearly identical. The Neutron may be just a tiny bit narrower. I order an 8.5 wide. Lacing system is a little different. The Synchro has a third hook, which locks the lace in place farther down the boot, a feature I use a lot. The out sole on the Neutron is different, and may be new. I like it. I've used them on wet, mud covered ice, and they hold as well or better than anything I've used before, and that is probably a hundred of pairs of boots. All the Asolo boots I've used seem to last at least a year of hard use. The soles have worn down in about that time, though the uppers are like new. This is fine with me because I then use them when working on shingled roofs. The smoother sole does almost no damage to warm shingles. They also work pretty well for technical approaches to rock climbs. I've never had an eye or hook pull on any Asolo product. During the week I alternate between the different pairs. Neither required any break-in time. Both are really comfortable on my feet, and I've never experienced "hot spots" that I do on some boots. I've used both for kicking steps in spring and summer snow, and with gaiters, my feet have stayed dry. I use good socks with them when hiking, back packing, and easy climbing. They've never let me down when used the way they were intended... and much more. I've been using this type of Asolo boots for about ten years now, in a number of renditions. I've bought them all from Sierra Trading Post, the first pair in store, the others by mail. All have fit well.

      These boots are a home run as far as waterproof ability and comfort. I had a older pair that I used last year up in Vermont and they held up VERY well with crampons!! These boots feel very light by the way!

      Answered on 2/17/2015 6:02:25 PM by Grady from Berkshire mountains
    • Answer I have used my crampons on the Aslo Neutrons, they are similar to the Grivel G10 in design and worked well with the boots.
      These boots are fine for general crampon use on flat to sloped ground but are not stiff enough for ice climbing on steep sections etc. but this would also necessitate different crampons than the G10.
      I have a pair of Aslo mountaineering boots I use for more significant crampon applications such as ice cliimbing.
      Overall these boots are excellent for most uses, light weight, with great structural support, sole traction and warmth when coupled with a good sock.
      I recomment putting a 1/8" foam insert under the foot bed liner for better cushioning, the bed linear in the boot is good for wicking moisture, circulation and structure support but not cushioned.

    • Answer Only a guess...A solo are great boots, but most of today's lighter weight boots do not hold up well to the stress of crampon .
      Answered on 2/18/2015 7:42:17 AM by Warrior from colorado
    • Answer They're not designed for use with crampons and will not hold a step-in crampon. That said, I have used similar Asolo boots with strap-ons with no ill effects... tho not extensively, mostly to cross low angle snow fields that have iced over. I don't think they would do too well kicking steps but they were fine with a strictly downward motion on the foot. Mine showed absolutely no sign of wear after 30 to 40 hours of this type of use. I tried the same thing with a couple of other brands only to have them delaminate in the toe, and the stitching come apart in the uppers. I weigh about 200 pounds, and have been doing this stuff for over 50 years.

    • Answer Wendy,
      I'm not sure what you mean by size. If your referring to size overall and not the boots foot sizing then yes it's a bigger and little heavier overall boot. I've worn several approach boots while deployed. They are lighter and give you a better range of motion and ability to articulate the foot and feel terrain under your feet. The neutrons are a beefier boot. I wear mine two to three times a week for periods of 8-9 hours just doing normal walking on hilly terrain or on the range. I just recently wore them in a very muddy back country area of WV for a period of 5 days of off road training . They were comfortable for long periods of time. They kept my feet dry even after stepping in and out of a creek a few times, but not over the top of the boot. They cleaned up great after two days of use in the mud. Three days after I got them in NV I did a seven mile hike up mt rose to break them in and not one warm spot or blister. If your a ultra lite back packer or hiker the cactus is good , but for me I like the ankle support and comfort of the neutron while carrying gear on un even terrain or working at night. I would replace the laces with a flat lace though. The ones that come with the boot come untied a lot if you don't double tie them.

    • Answer Sorry, I can't answer that question as I do not have the Cactus boots. All I can say is that these Neutron boots are true to size for my spouse in comparison with other brands.

    • Answer ONE THING ABOUT ASOLO BOOTS' IS THEIR CONSISTENCY IN SIZING. I HAVE OWNED AND STILL ORDER WITHOUT HESITATION IN SIZING ANY OF THEIR BOOTS. THEY HUG THE FOOT WITH A GOOD NATURAL FEEL AND WITH HARDLY ANY BREAK IN PERIOD.
      THE ONLY SUGGESTION THAT I HAVE OFFERED THE ASOLO MANUFACTURERS IS TO REPLACE A LARGER LACE HOOK IN TAKING UP THE LONGER LACES PROVIDED WITH ALL THEIR BOOTS. OF COARSE THERE ARE WAYS TO WRAP OR TUCK THE EXTRA LENGTH' BUT WOULD BE MUCH BETTER WITH A LARGER LACE HOOK. RIGHT NOW I'M DOUBLE WRAPPING THE TWO TOP HOOKS WITH THE EXTRA LACE. THIS MIGHT WORK FOR YOU' INSTEAD OF GETTING HOOKED UP ON SOME BRANCH OR COME UNTIED.

    • Answer I am not sure how they compare ... I do know that Asolo will run slightly narrow and always order a half size above your shoe size with hikers. What I do is go to a retail store and try on a pair if you can find them... I have never seen Neutron's in the store so try on a "similar" Asolo for reference. The Cactus seems more like a shoe than a hiker... the Neutron is a hiking boot.. good support and as hikers go... not really stiff... but definitely comes up above the ankle.

    • Answer While I don't have the Cactus, I have bought 3 pair of Neutron boots, 2 in size 13 for teenage boys and size 12 for me. They have all been true to size. I prefer a little extra room in toe box to accommodate wool socks? Have been very pleased with the fit and comfort. I haven't been able to catch the Cactus in my size and color (I am a little old for orange color) they look like great boots.

    • Answer They are close to size, but I order a 1/2 larger to ensure room and accommodate thick socks

    • Answer Sizes are similar, I do think the Neutron has a wider toe box, more padding around the ankle and is heavier than the Cactus boot. The Neutron is very comfortable and is my go to boot for anything that involves alot of hiking or standing (long lines at concerts ect.)

    • Answer I find that Asolo boots run the same size as any sports shoe I wear, no matter what the brand. I have also measured my foot with a device that measures feet and Asolo hits it every time. I am not sure of the Cactus boots you are referring to, but I would say they have the same standards.

    • Answer I ware a 10.5 shoe normally, but I tried a 10.5 boot and it was to tight. So I returned them for an 11 and they were perfect, as I tend to ware a med. to heavy cushion sock. Asolo boots, are truly the best made boot for the money, in my opinion.

    • 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 My reason for insert was to achieve a more comfortable/insulated footbed, have tried the cork footbed from my filson boots to get the comfort I was looking for. Still need to order cork footbed

    • 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.
