User Review: Asolo Men's TPS 520 GV
I purchased these on the advice of an experienced retail outlet in the USA. I had particularly wanted something for WET mountain conditions, and these were highly recommended.
I have had them out on 5 trips now in my home area of western Norway, and am not at all satisfied.
These boots are hopeless on even slightly wet rock, even at mild gradients. Also they do not perform well on rock generally. I have lost all confidence in them and consider them a liability on anything other than areas of gravel or vegetation.
This is sad, as they are the most comfortable and waterproof boots I have yet owned.
My pair are being sent back to ASOLO via a local distributor hopefully for ASOLO to have a look at.
Since the comments in this list are so varied, ranging from "excellent" in clearly difficult terrain to the same experience I have with lack of grip in the wet, I can only suppose the is a quality control issue at ASOLO.
If you buy these, beware, and try them out on some wet rock quickly after purchase.
