I have a fairly narrow foot, so finding the right boot was difficult, until I found Asolo. I knew I wanted a Gore-Tex liner and the 520 GTX was just what I was looking for. Fortunately for me, the color I was looking for (dark brown), wasn't going to be made again until spring. I guess Anthrasite is the other color used. Anyways, when I ordered the boot I received the new 1998 model. This new model is a little stiffer than its predecessor. As well, it offers quit a larger sole design with better traction. The sole is still made by Vibram. If you can wait, buy the new 1998 model.
Being very impressed with Asolo as a company, I threw away my Timberlands that I wore for casual use and replaced them with Asolo's Rainier boot. ($100) I've owned these boots for about a week now and their great.
Asolo makes an outstanding boot for whatever your needs may be. If you're looking for a new boot, try Asolo first. It will be the last company you ever buy from. Try Superfeet insoles as well. They make your Asolo boot all the more comfortable.
