User Review: Asolo Granite GV
Use: On and off track New Zealand tramoing and alpine work. Long distance Way-marked trails in UK
Break-in Period: None
Price Paid: NZD 400
These boots replaced a pair of La Sportiva Nepals (which are still the best boots I've ever owned). I've walked over 2000 kilometres in the Asolos, and the only problems I've had are: the stitching down the double seam at the heal coming undone (easily repaired, but not the best design feature), and ripping a couple of the lacing points out).
No "wear in" was required for my feet, and although they are at the end of their useful life now with no tread on the sole, they are still going well.
