Great LIGHT hiker, everyday boot

To confess, I am a big Asolo fan. I'm sure the purists long for the "good old days" when this brand was exclusively made in Italy. Well, times and economics change. All of my recent Asolo boots were from Romania. Europe. Near Italy, but more favorable labor and real estate rates. Purists need to remember that to keep the prices out of the stratosphere, companies need to make adjustments. From my standpoint, this brand still delivers excellent materials and consistent build quality. If the companies strive for quality control, they can make great products- even in China!
This boot is great for what it is. A lite day hiker and all around boot-even casual social occasions. I bought the Elephant color which garners lots of compliments. ( the laces are a great color, but too long!).
I'll use my Aloso Bajura boots for the heavy loads, but these are great for their designed purpose. As mentioned on other reviews, a better insole insert is a must if you intend to use for long day hikes. The soles are durable Vibram, but a bit thin on the cushion/comfort scale. Also, they take a bit longer to put on/lace up due to the design. But that's minor.
