User Review: Asolo Men's TPS 535
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $215
I bought this shoe to replace a heavier and hotter hiking boot. I find it to be very comfortable and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys hiking or simply walking outdoors.
- Light weight
I purchased this pair of shoes to replace my Asolo GTX Fugitive hiking boots. I found these boots to be light weight for a full leather boot and breathable; so much so that I wear them in the summer as well.
I conditioned and waterproofed the boot and now I can submerge the shoe in water with only a little water leaking in at the seams at the bottom sides of the tongue. To me this is much better than having a Gor-Tex liner. This way my feet stay much cooler and dryer (due to sweat be able to evaporate).
I wear these shoes hiking winter or summer and if I will be out walking for long periods. I have carried a 40lb pack and my feet did not hurt after the hike. I also found the break-in period to be very short.
I have worn these shoes for over a year now with moderate use and they are holding up very well. I keep them cleaned and conditioned so they still look new.
