Asolo Revenge GTX
I took these boots to the Grand Canyon within 2 weeks…

I took these boots to the Grand Canyon within 2 weeks of pulling them from the box. After a few smaller hikes (5-10 miles) total, I used them to cross the canyon, 26 miles, and they handled it perfectly.
Great break in time, minor hot spots on my heels, but nothing that was unmanageable. The ankle support is spectacular. Great traction. I have fairly wide feet, and the normal width was a good fit, they do offer a wide fit, but my experience was that it was for very wide feet.
Overall, you can't go wrong with Asolo, and these boots are no exception.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Early snowfall and late spring slush at alpine altitudes don't bother you when you're protecting your feet with the waterproof Revenge GTX boot from Asolo. While the interior GORE-TEX liner protects your feet from outside moisture, a cushy, EVA foam midsole and Active Heel Support system provides stability and shock absorption for long-lasting comfort.
