User Review: Asolo AFS 103
Use: Ice climbing and mountaineering
Break-in Period: N/A
Price Paid: don't remember (think it was a $199 closeout)
Stumbled on these boots on my trip through Paramus, N.J., at Campmor in Dec. of 96. I've used them on numerous occasions on both winter hikes, and long moderate ice climbs (Mt. Washington). I am pleased with their support while climbing vertical ice. They offer solid ankle support and unlike hinged plastic boots minimize stress on the calves. On hikes they are a bit stiff. It is difficult to walk up steep inclines flat-footed as there is little flex. The sole offers solid grip on all surfaces and the liner is warm enough for the coldest New England days.
