Purchased a pair of size 8.5 Lowa Cevedale hiking boots in blue/white to replace a comfy pair of size 8 Asolo Flame hiking boots that I bought in 2010. I would have loved to have gotten another pair of Asolos however, I found them not to provide very good traction in wet and snowy conditions and thus was hoping the Lowas could fill that role.

The Lowas are very well made and great looking boots. They do provide better traction than the Asolos, but they do not provide the fit and comfort that I got from the Aolos from day one. I could wear the Asolos all day! The Lowas are narrower, a little cumbersome to lace up and require quite a bit of break-in. They have become easier on the feet over time, but not to the level of comfort I had with the Asolos.

When the time comes to replace the Lowas, I may go back to Asolos.
