Verified Buyer Reviewed by rural/urban from Vermont on Wednesday, September 9, 2015
I entitled this review "Surprising!" because I've never had good luck with hiking boots. I've actually avoided hiking for a long time because the process of breaking in new boots was so painful. But recently a friend mentioned that the new generation of hiking boots is comfortable right out of the box, so I thought I'd try again, and I'd heard that Asolo is a reputable brand. Straight out of the box these boots felt solid, light, and unlikely to cause pain. I wore them on a short but rigorous hike the next day (about 3 hours) and they held up well. The support was excellent, and coming down, the treads were superb. It was a very hot day, and my feet didn't sweat. I don't yet know how they'll do in wet conditions.
