Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars
Materials: Nubuck upper/ Cambrell Lining
Use: rough trail w/heavy pack
Break-in Period: Several hikes
Weight: 2lbs 14oz

Purchased this boot and so did two other girlfriends, since it is such a bargain price. The sizes are true to size. We all found and great for a mid to wider foot. The upper material is fairly abrasion-resistant, however it is missing a rubber toe cap to make it more moisture resistant. Even in hiking in dew for a short period moisture penetrated at the toes even after a treatment with water repellent. The support of ankles and arches is great on this boot and after some break-in time of several hikes it is quiet comfortable when carrying a 35 lbs load plus load.

However, things will get a bit steamy in this boot, hiking in the Southwest. This is a boot good for cooler and try climate or early spring or fall outings with limited moisture. Gore-tex lining could improve this boot by a few stars by making it breathable and more water-resistant! The vibram outsole is sturdy and grippy except on wet logs or wet boulders.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Asolo is always improving its backpacking line, as evidenced by the Forclaz-a great-looking, comfortably rigid high-top with TPStechnology. Three shock absorbers in heel correspond to the impact experienced at ground impact, stabilizing mid-gait, and toe-off. Those who have wider feet will like the improved fit at the ball. Upper is water-resistant nubuck with wicking Cambrelle lining. Removable dual density insole, Vibram outsole. Ht. 5 ”, 2 lb. 14 oz. CLOSEOUTS . Romania.
