I am worse than my wife when it comes to shoes-my closet is full of Scarpas, Merrels, and Asolos.

I got these to hike in and also to walk to the train and to work here in the NYC area (I wear my ski clothes to work then change into shirt tie at work) and they are totally comfortable of the 4 mile... Read More

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by moff from Christchurch, New Zealand on Wednesday, July 23, 2014
    These are the first boots I have reviewed - well made and great soles. I feel a half size small (I ordered a 12 wide) so would order the next half size up unfortunately I am on the other side of the world so returns arent really an option easier to re-order and re-sell these locally. These are great boots dont get me wrong - the wide fitting options are great which I ordered however difficult for me to determine exact fitting as I would require with next size up, would possibly get away with a narrower fit size up personally but overall well made, great lacing, strong boot and would purchase again - cant fault with the right size purchased next time. Hope this makes sense.

    Maybe have ten miles in the new boots but so far they appear to be a winner after replacing the stock insoles (too thin). Fit true to size 9M. No hot spots thus far. Laces are really long if I had one complaint. Rating might go to 5 star after I get some miles and experience on them and see how durable they are.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Berchgirl from Michigan on Tuesday, July 15, 2014
    Purchased these for my husband for a camping/hiking trip. He wore them right out of the box for the trip without breaking them in and had no problems at all. Good ankle support and sturdy sole make this hiking boot ideal for active summer hikes. True to size, great quality boot!
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ed from CA on Saturday, July 12, 2014
    Just returned from 1st hike in Grand Teton NP. About 10 miles round trip. Took Teva's just in case, but they stayed in the backpack. Boots were excellent. Very comfortable. Good fit. I would say true to size. I wear 11D usually and ordered 11M. They fit great. See others comments if you have wide feat.

    Boots have nice stiff soles. I tested Gore Tex by walking into Jenny Lake up to ankles. Not a drop of water entered shoes.
    These will become my go to hiking boots whenever I need something more than trail running shoes.

    Great STP pricing as usual.

    I bought these to replace a worn out 10 year-old pair of Asolos. Thank goodness they are still making them like they used to!

    • Answer I have only owned mine for a couple of months, but the Vibram sole was just fine on my week long hike in the Teton's, as well as the training leading up to it.
      Answered on 7/15/2014 8:28:10 PM by Teton Tim from Michigan
    • Answer I know what you mean... These appear to be really good soles.
      I've run up my local hills just about everyday in them for several months now.
      The traction is excellent, there's little sign of wear, no cuts in the rubber, and no separation from the upper..
      My feet aren't easy to please (wide and a bunyon on one foot) and these have been great boots for me..
      Good luck!

    • Answer I've only put about 40 miles on the sole, most of it in the California high desert. However the soles are holding up fine with plenty of traction. I have to say that they are a lot less slippery than my old Vasques on desert varnished

      Answered on 7/16/2014 10:13:04 AM by gman from Southern CA.
    • 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.
      Answered on 7/16/2014 10:43:33 AM by SJG from NYC
    • Answer I only have the winter season on mine so far, but the soles look great still as new. Seem to be a good sole, I'm much happier with the Vibram sole as opposed to Asolo's sole
      Answered on 7/16/2014 12:18:23 PM by Shortie D. from Nor Cal
    • 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 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.

      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.

    • 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 Hill Runner 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.
      Answered on 4/24/2014 4:22:08 AM by SJG from NYC
    • 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.

    Asked on 2/1/2014 7:41:54 AM by Scotty4991 from Colorado

    • 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.
