Very happy with these
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Raoul Miller from CT on Wednesday, December 28, 2016
I finally decided to replace my almost 30 years old Asolo hiking boots and ordered a couple of different pairs to try from STP. These were the beefiest and most technical, but fit perfectly from the moment I tried them on - just as comfortable as my long-lasting old pair of boots.
They do have a s... Read More

  • Like them so far
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Daniel from WYOMING on Sunday, September 2, 2018
    I've only wore them once. But so far they are very comfortable. With the stiff soles they should dig in while climbing steep hills, my buddy has a pair and loves them, he says it's like having hooves and I can see it. I look forward to using them this year for hunting.
  • Summit right out of the box

    Great fit and comfortable boot. Plenty of room in toe box for running socks under thick wool socks. Sizing seems to be right on. I did have mole skin on both my heels just in case. Wore them for a quick hike up heliotrope to get a feel for correct lacing tightness. Then summited mt adams next weekend. Boots feel great going up or down with or without crampons.
  • Boots

    They appear to be solid boots. I've been asked to write this review shortly after I received the boots. They look good and feel good but I haven't given them any real world test yet, ask me in two months and I can give a better assessment.

  • Nice Boots

    Haven't had them out on the trail, but i'm overall very pleased with the fit and build quality. Will update after a wintertime trip on Mt. Shasta this spring.

  • “Hi are these boots grade b1 or b2 and are they compatible with C1 crampons? Thanks Christian ”
    Asked by Arcticoakesy from Florida on 3/26/2017 10:51:38 AM
    • I wasn't previously familiar with the b1, b2, & b3 labels but from my understanding I'd say these are b2 and could fit a normal step in crampon.

    • These boots do not have a toe welt and while you may be able to fasten C2's I'd recommend strap-on C1's

  • “What type of treatment should be given to the exterior suede & nylon part of the boot? ”
    Asked by Mountain Man from Vermont on 2/8/2017 7:48:34 PM
    • As of now I haven't treated them with anything at all and they have retained their waterproofness - I have put between 50-100 miles on them in dry, wet, and snowy conditions.

      I've had good experience with spray on Nikwax products in the past - this article references a special treatment for mixed material goretex boots -

      This article from gore-tex says you shouldn't need to treat the boots at all - just keep them clean.
