My feet have never been happier. First use was at Tuckerman's Ravine w/30 lb pack--no blisters, hotspots, or discomfort of any kind. I've had problems in the past w/inner ankle bones getting irritated/inflamed, but the cushy uppers on these boots were great. Traction coming down snowy/icy trail was good. Best backpacking boots I've ever worn!

The Asolo AFX 535 V has been by far the best boot I’ve ever owned. With minimal break in time and waterproofed leather, I highly recommend the AFX 535 V for its comfort and its durability. Asolo boots are the best in the world. I gave my Vasques away to my friend who backpacks the A.T. every spring. He told me they lasted only 25 miles before the seams started splitting.
