Just Okay

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Part time Hiker from Los Angeles on Friday, February 6, 2015
Asolo makes create hiking boots and I read the reviews on the Zion. They were all pretty positive except about the slippage because the sole lugs are rounded. I ordered them anyway because of the reputation. They fit good with regular socks but with thicker hiking socks, they're a bit tight and narrow. I could see how these would have trouble gripping in wet conditions or slick conditions. Not sure why Asolo decided on this tread pattern. They would take some time breaking in which is okay but I was concerned about the grip. Hiking over rocks, damp or not might be an issue.

I returned them for the Adidas Kumcross GoreTex. These are out of the box comfortable and the grip seems substantially better.
