Just received the Asolo Powermatic 100's and WOW! I got these after returning the Alico Guide Mountaineering boots which killed my feet. The Powermatics are comfortable right out of the box. I did get a wide and it's a perfect fit. THESE BOOTS RUN VERY NARROW. I wear a regular in all other boots... Read More

    I took some time breaking these boots in on trail in Colorado and New Hampshire. A few hot spots that got worked out and I must say these are rock solid. I'm currently using them as my everyday boot in Afghanistan. They handle any terrain thrown at them and then some.

    The color walnut is not very accurate. This is a very light colored nubuck leather boot. It fits larger than my traditional ASOLO FSN 95 boots I have loved for years. Same quality build, just a larger fit than usual - I would say a half size larger

    i have been a long time Asolo Hiking Boot customer and always have bought them through Sierra Trading Post. This was my first pair of Power Matic 100's and they are the best yet! No break-in period and I wore them all day long the first day. The Gore-Tex keeps nice and dry and the Vibram soles protect my feet for years.

    Usually wear size 9 M dress shoe, and I chose size 9 1/2 M. It made perfect fit at my first try.
    Then started 6hr trekking (13 miles) with 20lbs back pack, no pains at all. (Usually I had little pain at back of foot & ankle area.)
    I will recommend to buy this shoe if you want 4 ~ 8 hrs trekking & back packing.

    I bought these eight months ago, but waited to review until after I had put the boots through their paces. Just getting back from a “bucket list” hiking trip to Peru, I think I have enough experience in them now.

    I have to start any boot review by emphasizing the best lesson I ever learned about hiking boots. I was taught that every manufacturer has their own special last to build boots around and it either works for your feet or it doesn't. Asolo boots fit my feet well, so my review focuses on the features, not the fit.

    After 22 years and hundreds of miles of hiking in my Asolo 570's, I updated to the Powermatic 100. I am very happy to write that these boots doing a great job following the legacy of my old fave’s. These new generation boots are extremely comfortable. I find the deep Achilles notch makes these boots feel as comfortable as low tops, yet they have the ankle support of a traditional backpacking boot. The stand out feature, though, is the micro-pulley lacing. When I first laced up my boots I thought they fit too tightly around the top of my foot, but quickly realized that with this smooth acting lacing system I was getting way more tightening than I was used to. You just don’t need to pull very hard to get the same degree of tightening that takes a big tug on normal D-ring lacing. It makes the boot incredibly easy to adjust the fit. I like to take it easy over my arch and then really tighten down around the ankle using the speed lacing. The flex between the ankle and the foot is supple, so this arrangement is both supportive and comfortable. Of course, the better you can fit your boot the better it feels and performs.

    I’ve been stuck for hours hiking in rain and the boots have been 100% waterproof. And the outsole gripped like a Vibram sole should! These are backpacking boots so the soles are stiff and do not let any feeling of the rocks or uneven terrain come through. For me they magically cuddle and support my foot firmly while leaving my toes free to move around comfortably without any pinching or sliding. Now all they have to do is last me 22 years like my last pair!

    • Answer I love my Asolo 100's. Before I bought them I also compared them to the 200's. Not much difference at all is what I found. Same movement in the sole, same quality and I saved more than 100 dollars. I have used them for the last three months volunteering on the AT rebuilding trail and hiking. My feet never got wet and I never obtained one blister, not one, and they were brand new when I started. I think it is an excellent boot. Before I bought them I compared them to Lowa, Solomon and a couple of others. Most of the others said they were water proof but the reviews said they were not, also the other boots did not have the flexibility of the Asolo. I am 57, done a lot of hiking and I'm afraid I have to say this but they really are the best boot I have ever worn. Hope that helps.

    • Answer Good question. Yes, sizes are US standard shoe/boot sizes. Sierra's website has a UK and EU conversion table on their website, if applicable.
      I'veve too made the mistake of ordering a US size only to discover it was a EU size.

    • Answer The only differance I can see is the soles. I have a pair of each, the sassalon, I bought two years ago and have put allot of miles on them. They are a great boot for the money. I do a bunch of hiking in the high country and they have held up very well. The soles are worn almost smooth so I tried a pair of the Powermatic this time with the rubber sole to see if they would hold up better walking in the scree fields. I like them so far but haven't give them the ultimate test yet.

    • Answer I bought these on the recommendation of a family member who has been backpacking for 30 years and has owned many pairs of Asolo boots. Both boots have merits , I like the micro pulley system for the shoe laces on the powermatic ,makes them super easy to remove and tighten. I hike the mountains of Colorado and so far these boots have proved superior to any other boot I have had.

  • Question “What's the difference between the medium and wide width?”
    Asked on 12/4/2013 12:21:39 PM by Mike from Canada
    • Answer I have a D width foot and I ordered the regular. I was concerned about it too but, these boots fit really well. Unless you have an extra wide foot, order the regular.

      Answered on 12/4/2013 5:21:19 PM by Alaska Brad from Interior Alaska
    • Answer I do not know the exact measurement difference between the two, but I chose the wide width after trying on similiar Asolo boots at different outdoor shops. If you have this option then I suggest that. I have what is considered a wide foot and the wide fit my foot much better. The Newer Powermatic(200) is a similar cut boot. I could not find it in the wide anywhere but found another similar Asolo boot that came in wide and felt that the extra width made a big difference. It allowed me to order a 10.5 instead of an 11. They are a great feeling boot. I have been out on two hikes and they felt good. They replaced a 40 year old pair of Raichle's.
