Tried a pair of Asolos in the Cascades last year, a bit too small but did feel nice. Decided to buy a pair this year. Boot seems completly different now. Way too low over the toes, when you get a size that fits well, the heel is loose and so on. They have an excellent price, but after trying them out once, I did go forward and bought the Scarpa Invero -- at twice the price, but what a boot.
