Strong, heavy, well-made backpacking boot. According to Asolo it is resoleable (Asolo can do it, so I suppose a local cobbler will also). Beautiful craftmanship with a gorgeous white leather lining.
Probably narrow because it fits me and I have a narrow heel. Adequate toe room, I need a big toe box and I can wiggle my toes in this. You do need to break the leather in. Great support, traction, durable. Interesting eyelets for the laces, they are super strong, look like tiny pulleys, seem like overkill but they do work well.
I have five different pairs of backpacking boots. This one I would take if things were wet because it is 100% totally waterproof. HOWEVER, it is also heavy. The insole is pretty good for an Asolo; no need to change it out.
These are mostly sold in Europe. In the USA they either call it by a different name or changed it slightly.
Usually backpack 4-day trips in Sierra Nevada, also day hikes in summer and winter. Have two pairs of Asolo, one pair of Lowe, Alico, and Limmer boots. Been hiking in the Sierras for 52 years.
