User Review: Asolo Men's Echo
Use: backpacking w/heavy pack & dayhike w/Camelbak
Price Paid: $99
I bought the Echo boot as a replacement of a worn out similar constructed boot by another company. The initial fit and feel of the boot was good (in the store). I used them for a three-day hike backpacking trip on the AT.
My feet have never sweat so bad in any other boot. I tried a wicking sock on day two. My feet and hiking socks were soaked with sweat and come day three my feet really began to hurt. The bottoms of my feet were now getting very tender. I then tried them on a 10-mile dayhike two weeks later, again my feet were sweaty above and beyond normal standards.
I returned the boots to REI the next day. I have since bought Raichle backpacking boots.
