User Review: Asolo Men's FSN 95 GTX
Source: bought it new
OK, not great. They give me blisters.
- Soles aren't great
Good lightweight boots with enough support. The insoles don't provide any cushion. Carrying a 35 lb pack, my feet definitely start hurting after a few miles, especially if heading downhill. There is a seam on the inside of these boots right down the midline at the heel. This inevitably rubs my heel and gives me blisters anytime I do any significant amount of uphill climbing, more than a mile or so. The soles seem to wear fairly quickly and do not provide good traction when wet. I can't trust them on wet rock.
So there are good things: I like the weight and the amount of support. I think the blister thing is related to foot shape as well because obviously not everyone has that experience. They have just the right amount of rigidity and feel solid. Never had any issue with waterproofness and breathability I think is good for a waterproof boot.
