User Review: Asolo Men's Echo
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $7 (salvation army)
These boots are rugged and hold up the ankles almost like having a ankle brace. W/ the steel heal and toe almost feels like the feet are indestructible. W/ the rubber heel your able to have traction like a goat on the side of the mountain for support of the load. I recommend these boots for 3 seasons. Due to the fact it has GoreTex your feet will be soaking wet in the summer time.
- Steel heel and toe
- Laces tighten in the middle to have diff tightness from top/bottom
- Not breathable (Gore-Tex not good for summer)
You definitely need to make sure you try these boots on before ordering. Due to the fact they have a steel toe/heel you have no room for error. Once you have your boot size, go ahead and get ready for comfort from day 0. With the steel toe/heel your ankle feels like it has a ankle brace holding it up.
Now the boot has Gore-Tex in it, so if the boot gets wet plan on a switching out your boots and tie them on your pack to dry for the day. On the other hand if the weather is chilly plan warm dry toes. W/ the rubber heel plan on grip under dry and wet conditions.
Now the laces have a break in between the upper and lower part of the boot so it allows you to be able to have diff tension from the upper and lower part of the boot. Now w/ the well made construction of the boot you are able to wear and tear these bad boys pretty much till the day you feel like you can't walk anymore. Then after that you will be able to hand these down from generation to generation.
