User Review: Asolo Men's Fugitive GTX
Materials: Nubuck leather, Nylon, Gore-tex
Use: rough icy and snowy trail with a 20 lb pack
Break-in Period: zero
Weight: 3 lb boots
Price Paid: $150
Like most other reviewers pointed out, these boots need no break-in. I hiked 16 rocky and icy miles in rain/snow the second day I bought the boots. They fit like gloves with no hot spots. Whenever I felt uncomfortable, a little adjustment of the laces always took care of it. They are light (feel like part of my feet) and solidly built (can take a beating). Totally waterproof. Very trustworthy.
The only reason I am not giving a 5 star is that the insoles are quite hard. Maybe I should try socks with more cushion.
Some reviewers replace the factory insoles with Superfeet. Don't! The ridges under Superfeet grind into the Gore-tex lining and destroy water-proofness. See Superfeet website, Q/A section.
