Quality Boots

Verified Buyer Reviewed by EGC from Ozark County, Missouri on Thursday, August 14, 2014
The Neutron Gore-Tex is a quality boot, as you would expect from Asolo. They are more expensive than I would usually consider, but they are affordable with the Sierra Trading Post discount. Buying footwear of any kind without trying it on is always a gamble, but these boots were a perfect fit and true to size out of the box. I wear a size 9-W (2E) street shoe and size up to 10-W in boots. The Neutron boot in that size fits just the way I like it. It laces up firmly around the ankle and instep to prevent slippage, but it has plenty of wiggle room in the toe for freedom of movement and heavier hiking socks. They were comfortable from the first step and required virtually no breaking in. I average a couple miles a day on a hilly gravel road with occasional longer hikes and off-trail bushwhacking. These boots provide good ankle support and toe protection, and the Vibram outsole gives good traction and prevents stone bruises. I have yet to own a pair of "waterproof" boots that were completely waterproof after a period of wear. We'll see how these turn out, but they are a good buy either way.
