The Cactus

My last pair of Asolos lasted 23 years so I knew I wanted to stick with the brand. I've worn these on four 10 mile hikes which included very steep, rocky fire roads and badly maintained, steep switchbacks. There was no break-in time for me. Can't promise that for everyone though. The lacing makes it simple to tailor fit these shoes to perfection and I'm definitely happy with them so far. They are true to size. Be aware that you don't throw these shoes on and run out the door. The lacing can take a few minutes per shoe and when you take them off you have to loosen about 6 rows, otherwise they're not coming off. If you're putting any boot on correctly you should be investing a few minutes anyways before you go hiking. Grip is great, Gore-Tex is great and they look cool. I can't keep the girls off me with these boots. Ok, just kidding about that part.
