I've been using a pair of FSN95s for about 5 years for day hiking and backpacking trips up to 9 days. I got the Sasslongs for the latter application.

The Sasslong one-piece leather uppers are taller than on my FSN95s and offer more ankle support. They also provide a little more rock protection ... Read More

    I originally purchased a pair of these merely because Asolo fit me (more on that below),and because the deal ST offers is quite good. I never wear my good hiking boots on pavement and wanted a decent all-around every day beater that could handle jobsites, stonework, and an afternoon scramble without changing shoes. A year + later, having worn these 5 days out 7 I have to say, I was flat out surprised. The Sasslong is a fantastic boot: comfortable, rugged, surprisingly cool in the summer for an all leather gortex boot and, while I wouldn't call it "warm" in the winter per se, the waterproofing is excellent; dry feet tend to be warm feet so, with extra socks and keeping moving these are fine to 20f if you have reasonable circulation.

    The sole is surprisingly stiff, which I happen to like. The Sasslong can handle any load you'd care to carry, on just about any terrain. They actually climb surprisingly well and have performed just fine on quite a bit of impromptu bouldering, the odd chimney, and so on. The vibram sole is of a narrow, mountaineering style, not the most stable platform out on the flats (where stability is not a concern!), perfect for nimble foot placement and scrambling. Not the boot for crampon work, but short of that, a truly versatile three season mountain boot that happens to be comfortable enough for daily wear (if one needs or likes wearing boots). On the break-in, I'd say these are ok out of the box, comfortable after 20 miles, and broken in after 50.

    Regarding size: Asolo's run narrow. This is great in an all leather boot, as the boot can mould itself to your foot, and while stiff-soled, this boot grabs your heel well so there's no heel lift, less blisters, a more "positive" foot feel (one can feel where one's foot is on the terrain). All that is great -- unless you have really wide feet. They make a wide size too but, if you have EEE feet I think even the wide would be too tight. In the realm of boot sizing, Asolo's and La Sportiva's tend to the narrow, Lowa's are in the middle, and Scarpa's are high volume (there are some exceptions within the brands, but that is a good general rule). The stock footbed is relatively worthless (as they generally are) unless your foot is on the high-volume end, in which case you can't give up any space for a Superfeet or Sole insole which otherwise, you'll want.

    Mine have put in over a thousand miles of this-and-that use, are still waterproof , and have enough tread for a few more goes. I don't think they're in the category of boot worth resoling, but I would definitely get another pair if they're still around when my current pair gives up the ghost.

    These are great boots. Probably one of the stiffer boots I've owned, but definitely built well. Lots of good things to say about them, but my final review will need to be after using them for a year.

    The boot sizing ran just a bit smaller than some other high end boots I own (Kenetrek, Hanwag), but that actually worked out better for me. STP's Customer Service and return/exchange services are second to none. They are right up there with out great Customer Service companies - Duluth Trading CO, LL Bean, Cabelas, etc.

    The boots themselves seem very well made, certainly a step above most of the entry level products. I haven't worn them enough yet to tell if they are going to be as good as other "technical" boots made by the other big names, but my first impression is that short of scaling Mt Everest, you are going to have plenty of boot with the Asolo Sassalong.

    Lacing system is good - able to change the fit and "snugness" at ankle, top and instep.

    Fit and Finish appears good

    Soles appear very functional

    Lateral support appears sufficient

    I'm happy with them.

    Got these in the mail and they were a little tight in length for hiking so I exchanged for a 1/2 size bigger and they fit great!!! I could not be happier. I have been hiking in them doing shorter day hikes over the last month or so and will be going to backpack in the grand canyon for a couple of days and am looking forward to wearing these their!! I purchased 2 different brands of Gore-Tex hikers and these won by far!!!

    I bought these boots whim because I got them for a great price on Sierra Trading Post. They are very good looking boots. Despite many reviews saying the boots are narrow, I found them to fit true to size. I did add an insole to the boots and after a week of wearing the boots to work at a desk job, they are broken in and very comfortable. I wore them on my first hike last weekend. 10 miles, mostly steep country. The soles were just stiff enough to provide great support, but not so stiff that I was able to hike with a normal gait (Some extra stiff mountaineering boots can alter my normal gait). If I had any complaint, it would be that I wished they were about a half an inch or inch taller (little more ankle support). But, all in all, really good boot. Would recommend to a friend.
