User Review: Asolo Women's TPS 535
Use: rough trails with moderate/heavy pack
Break-in Period: 1 day
Price Paid: C$250
A few points first. I always wear all-leather, have wide feet, am not worried about the weight (those are half the weight of my Gronells). I've owned various hiking/mountaineering boots. I'm an experienced hiker. And I replaced the insoles. I wear a liner inside my hiking socks. I have a problem spot on the base of my pinky toe that usually requires to be punched out.
Now, the review. I can NOT find anything negative about them. The Asolos were perfect on a 59-km hike through steep mountains of NorthWest (I took them brand-new). Soles are comfortable but hard enough to protect your feet. Great ankle support. I walked through many bogs with gaiters, Asolos, and sno-seal. I'm considering buying another pair to keep for the future.
