User Review: Asolo Men's Fugitive GTX
Price Paid: $149
Just bought a pair of 8W Fugitives to replace a pair of 7.5W LLB Crestas whose sole lugs have worn down after 1-2 kmi of mountain hiking. Would have gotten another pair of Crestas but LLB, in their infinite corporate wisdom (idiocy?), has reduced the width of their wide boot (~3/16") to the point where it can hardly be called "wide," and certainly didn't fit me anymore.
Took the Fugitives out on a quick 6 mi. trial mountain hike and liked them a lot--hope I'll be saying that in a few years with a one or two thousand miles of mountain hiking miles on them. By the way, it was a freaky 93F+ day in May and my feet didn't get that wet, despite the GTX lining, although I wish they, and other boot makers, had non-GTX versions of their boots--I'd rather get my feet wet from rain than my sweat.
Didn't rate this a 5 because of limited experience with it so far and because it's not non-GTX.
