Asolo Scafell Gortex Hiking Boots

Verified Buyer Reviewed by DLM from Colorado on Thursday, February 15, 2018
First off I must say after over 20 years of shopping with STP, I remain impressed with their outstanding customer service. Case in point, these boots replaced a 3 year old textile pair the started leaking (also Asolo). The soles were not very worn so STP customer service provided a full credit towards the new pair. Can't ask for better than that!

On to the boots after about a year a 15 good hikes. The size is true to my shoe size and the W width works well with my Med/Wide feet. These are more substantial than the textile boots and I feel the leather forms better to my feet than textile - better comfort overall. They have good support with flexibility where needed. Soles do a decent job over rocky trails that would be uncomfortable in hiking shoes yet the boots are fairly light ( as boots go). They remain totally waterproof and the construction has very few seams to work loose or leak over time. I don't do any heavy backpacking so I cannot comment to that but I am very happy with these boots and would replace them with the same model when they wear out.
