Expert GV

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great lightweight versatile boot. I bought these boots 8 years ago from REI. I have some challenges with the Italian welt at times. It seems my foot is slightly wide, although never noticed with American shoes. As a result, some Italian models are just too narrow, while other models from the same manufacturer are a great fit. I bought the Asolo Men’s Expert GV for the spring couloir climbing season in Colorado. For that reason I did not need a heavily insulated boot, but did need waterproof. Full review

TPS 520 GV

rated 5 of 5 stars Backpacking and hiking boot for anyone who needs a good solid, sturdy boot, to avoid a rolled ankle. I highly recommend these to anyone who wants to guarantee they can hit any terrain with confidence. I purchased a pair of these for the South Coast Track down in Tasmania, Australia. An 85km (52 miles) track that goes over some very harsh terrain, from mountains to deep rainforest. These boots did not disappoint me. They were comfortable from the start, waterproof (unless of course your entire foot… Full review

Fugitive GTX

rated 1.5 of 5 stars The nose rubber, that black piece you see up front, started to get serious cracks. In my book a definite material malfunction. Never again, Asolo and hopefully never again anything vulcanized. I would spend a ton of time reading any reviews you can get your hand on before deciding what shoes to buy. You have only one pair of feet and abusing them with bad shoes, but with lovely treks, is not worth any price. I bought mine in November 2013 in Pto. Natales, Chile—after I couldn't find any good… Full review

TPS 520 GV

rated 1 of 5 stars Asolo are supposedly a top brand boot, and my last pair lasted 14 years of some multi-day trips. The current boots are a poor reflection on what was a great product My first pair of Asolos lasted 14 years with one replacement sole. Great boots! Many multi-day tramps and summits. I bought my next pair in 2013. Beautiful boots with great traction, comfort, and support.  I always dried, cleaned and G-waxed them after every trip. However after two years of use, mainly day tramps in New Zealand, the… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars This is the best pair of boots I have ever even heard using them for over 30 years...and from talking on the trails about boots (and other equipment) to the many I have hiked with and met on the on the rocky paths. Read my review...I abused these boots and they loved me back. Wow, I stumbled on this thread by chance while looking for new hiking boots on the market today that I need for a backpacking trip I'm going on next month. I think nostalgia and indecision got the best of me and I Googled… Full review
