Awesome boots

Reviewed by CoachRobMD from PA on Wednesday, November 15, 2017
I've owned Meindl, Lowa, Vasque, Timberland, and a # of other brands of hiking boots. In all of those, I've ordered a size 9 (I wear street shoe size 8.) Since I wear ankle stabilizers and thick socks, that always was needed. I ordered these in size 8.5 and 9 to see which fits best with my thickest warmest LLBean wool socks and the ankle stabilizers. The 8.5 fit perfectly, with the 9's offering too much toe room and width, which would cause blisters to appear.

These are the best pair of hiking boots I've ever owned. From their tough exterior, waterproof (ran it under the tap and water just beads up) Gore-Tex, to the superior lacing system, the treads, firmness and protection against rocks denting the soles, etc. I cannot think of a better constructed shoe available, even at twice the price as the Lowas and Meindls were. Delivery was fast with two day shipping, and I couldn't be happier than I am with these Asolo boots. I don't know where they're made, but I believe it's in the US. But no matter where they're put together, whoever is doing it is doing a great job. I'll never go back to the other "major" brands again. I suspect these will last 15 years of hiking if I care for them, which I certainly will. Give them a try; you won't be disappointed. And do try 1/2 size up versus the usual full size for hiking boots. It worked for me.
