User Review: Asolo Men's Fugitive GTX
Break-in Period: I walked about 7-10 miles and then they felt great.
Price Paid: $170
These boots are great. The break-in period was very short. I wore them for a week long trip on the AT carrying about 25 lbs. in my pack. The whole trail was covered with several feet of powder so all of the hiking was done with snowshoes. Walking with snowshoes is pretty demanding but my feet were always comfortable. So of my friends started to get blisters but I never did. Not once did my feet hurt at the end of the day. We went through a stream crossing at one point and the shoes remained perfectly dry inside.
The only thing is that if I wasn't moving, my feet would start to freeze, but considering that the boots are often described as light hiking boots, I don't think they were intended for freezing weather. Also these boots seem to have exceptional traction.
