User Review: Asolo Men's FSN 95 GTX
Price Paid: approx. $150
I bought a pair of these about five years ago. I did only a moderate amount of hiking and was pretty pleased with the boots. The uppers were showing little wear and the tread still looked good.
Last month on the first day of a 75 mile hike along the Great Glen Way in Scotland, the heel blew out on the left boot. The rubber on the inside of the heel, which is apparently just a big air pocket, tore (apparently just from normal use) and the boot was unusable. They found a new home in a rubbish bin in Spean Bridge.
Fortunately, I had a pair of Lowa low-top hikers that worked great for the rest of the hike. I am not buying another pair of Asolos.
