Perfect fit out of the box

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Robo31542 from North Dakota on Thursday, February 5, 2015
I've gone through a number of pairs of Asolo boots... and they're all been exceptional. This is my first pair of Neptunes. I wore them around town for a couple of days to break them in. Probably not necessary. I then wore them of a multi day hike in the Badlands of North Dakota. It was warm for January, but I don't think temperature would have been much of an issue either. On the other hand, all the south facing slopes were muddy.. the north icy. The boots were superb, especially on the downhill ice. I had never used this type sole before and was impressed. I wore gaiters but didn't need them... much. My feet never got wet, from the inside or out. I'm not sure how they will hold up, but they appear well built. I abuse stuff and have never been let down by Asolo. I've owned dozens of pairs of hiking and climbing boots from a broad spectrum of manufacturers, and these are definitely among the best. When I got home I used a brush and washed them off in the kitchen sink. They look new. My feet are wide and the wide size is very comfortable, while giving great support, and good edge control. I'd used them on a lot of technical climbs.
