Been wearing these boots for about two weeks now in northern PA in February and so far very pleased! It's been very wet and cold and so far my feet have stayed dry and warm. Worn them on a day hike in fresh snow up to 5" without issue--uppers stayed dry, traction was good, and the Gore-Tex did it's ...

I bought a second pair because I liked these so much. Very lightweight, but still tough like boots. The insoles are pretty flat, right out of the box. They do get better as you break them in, easy to get used to for me.

These boots are very comfortable and great for hiking up to moderate trails. They are lightweight, so not fatiguing, and that is why they are comfortable. A lot of the ankle support is by the extensive lacing system. For rocky trails such as in Colorado mountains, I think the footbed isn't that supported, so I'd use these for less aggressive uses. Getting into and out of the boots one must really un-lace them for a few eyelets, but that's fine.

These boots do fit to size . I normally order a half size down on American made boots. I'm glad I just ordered my size. They require minimal break in time and again I'm comparing to Redwing and Wolverine.
They will be with me on vacation in Acadia and Baxter state park in Maine for the Memorial Day week and will see how they do on light steep hikes.
As I recall, the gusset goes to about 2 inches from the top. I sent them back, so I can't check the boots.

All the way to the top.

The high part of the gusset where it attaches to the tongue is 2" to top, the high part of the gusset where it attaches to the body of boot is 2 3/8" to top and the lowest part of the gusset, in the dip or bottom of gusset fold is 2 3/4" to top. Have read where it can be intrusive but have not had a problem with that and have put around 75 miles on so far, all on a packed bike track, typically rough on feet because of speed and hammering. Had to trim the left insole at heal left just a tiny bit to keep from rubbing but fine now. If you buy them wear them around the house for a few days to get the feel of them and don't wrench the laces real tight, play around with them.

The gusset stops 2.25 inches short of the top of the upper on my pair.

Within 2 inches. I would guess, ridiculously snug at ankle. Very hard to put the boot on.

I am an E width and my length is 11. If I nudge up a half size on shoes it works out ok. The size upsize gives me more width but sometimes too long and the footbed may not fit either. From what I have discovered, Asolo shoes are very precise in width and length, they have a extremely high quality feel fit. I have found that the Asolo Cactus and Mantra are true to size....BUT........they are suede and they flex nicely and conform to a wider foot. I'm not sure I would try ordering my size 11 in a shoe that was less flexible. The Cactus are nicely flexible but not overly so
Answer: I think your D+ width or even E would work well in the Cactus, just order your regular size 9 in the standard width. I think you'll be just great. I hope so! They are super nice shoes if you like Asolo.
There are so many factors to a shoe fitting a feeling "right". I have rather flat feet but not entirely flat which makes my foot "spread" wide to an E.
Hit me up if you have any more questions.

I would recommend sizing up by 1/2 size because the shoes will fit perfectly for a regular width individual. Anything wider will be a bit tight; also, the insoles are not the highest quality--these tend to bunch up in the heel area. I've replaced mine with a better quality insoles. The new insoles and sizing up made all the difference.
These are still great shoes.

I these things fit like a glove. They are much more fitted"I these things fit like a glove. They are much more "fitted" than a standard hiking boot, more like a climbing shoe almost. I would guess you would want the proper width. It might be worth the gamble, I have never had shoes fit this well right out of the box, these are sweet!

It's a pretty narrow boot. You may want to go up a size.

I think so. Sometimes I find the lace to the toe boots to narrow, but these have fit me well, and I am a solid D width. They are snug to get on for me but comfornable once on, I don't lace them tight.

The Asolo cactus boot is a good fit for narrow feet. I have a narrow thin foot and these boots fit like a glove.
