User Review: Asolo Globaline Longitude
Use: rough trail and snowshoe
Break-in Period: none
Weight: 3 lbs. (?)
Price Paid: $109
i bought these boots as an all purpose boot; hiking, snowshoeing, getting to work, shoveling the drive, etc. this past weekend i competed in my first snowshoe event. it was a 10K race which included twice ascending a local wisconsin ski mountain.
although i road race in the warmer months, i did not anticipate anything other than completion of this event. therefore, i opted to wear the asolo boots rather than running shoes. they gave me unbelievable control! my competitors were twisting and complaining of soaked feet. the weight of the asolos wasn't even a factor. on the descent of the hill the wrap-around ankle support was key. normally i run in nike air max, and i was very comfortable in these. additionally, my feet remained bone dry thanks to the gore-tex. so far i'm very happy with them.
