    Asolo Fission GV Hiking Boots - Women's is rated 4.4737 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from blisters on narrow heels I bought these for a 5 day backpacking trip. I walked about 15 miles in them over several shorter hikes and walks to break them in before the trip. I'm the first to admit that I didn't do enough to break them in before I took them out hiking, I waited too long to replace an old pair of boots and planned a slightly last minute trip. When I took them out for a 4 mile break-in hike, I got small blisters on my heels (wearing SmartWool trekking socks). I took them for a few more break -in walks, and thought I had solved the problem by wearing newer socks, but I made the mistake of sticking to level terrain. I have very narrow feet (AA width in some shoes), especially in the heels. I was initially very happy with these boots because they were narrower and lighter than my previous Vasques which made me feel like I had better control over my foot placement and didn't have cinder blocks attached to my feet. Once I started climbing the continental divide on my backpacking trip, I realized that the heels were not quite narrow enough. This combined with how stiff the shoes are and how hard the interior of the boots are meant that even though my heel was probably only moving about 1-2mm per step I took, after 6 miles of uphill I had blisters the size of silver dollars on both of my heels. (I was then approached by a bear while trying to drain my blisters, but that's another story...) I ended up having to reduce the mileage of my trip and do some of my hiking Tevas because the blisters became so unbearable. I really wanted these boots to work because they otherwise fit well, seem very durable, and are very light for the amount of support they provide. For people trying these shoes, keep in mind that the soles are very stiff and the heels have basically no padding, so if your feet move in the shoes AT ALL when you go uphill, you will probably get terrible blisters. I have tried again to take these on shorter hikes and walks, and I can still feel the same problem. I have finally given up on them working and will be returning them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots I had a pair of Asolos that I bought over 10 years ago that I loved. I finally retired them this year, and started looking for a new pair of boots. I tried on a few different brands, but the Asolos fit me the best. They feel a lot like my old boots, but I did get a 1/2 size smaller. It seems like these boots run a little bigger than the others I tried on. My feet are on the narrow side, and the Asolos work well for me. Other brands, like Keen are too wide and never fit right. I have gone on a few hikes with them, and so far so good. They are light, required no breaking in, and seem to be good in wet conditions. I had to do multiple stream crossings, and at one point my toe went in pretty deep. My feet stayed dry the whole time. I tend to do longer hikes (6+ miles) on rocky terrain, and these boots should give me the support and durability I need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot This boot meets the the superb quality that I expect from Asolo. I own Asolo's mountaineer boots and heavy duty leather hiking boots. They are made for my wide feet and abuse. I love this lighter boot and plan to wear them on the John Muir Trail 223 miles in Aug 2013.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots ever I bought these boots after reading the reviews online. I broke them in just walking around the neighborhood. They were completely comfortable on my 3 day backpacking trip...no blisters! And my entire foot felt supported and this made me feel confident on the trail. Worth every penny!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable boot with no break in time These boots are the most comfortable I have used with no break in time and perfect on the islands or in the mountains. I took them for their first hike, nine miles over rough terrain. The were awesome and I was the only one without tired feet later after climbing rocks, rocky edges, creek crossing sand, gravel and even blacktop later in the day. I highly recommend them. I only had a light 30 litre pack on but have since carried a 40 lb pack to the islands with these boots on. I wear one thin sock and one good solid hiking sock. I wear a woman's size 7 regular and purchased these in a 7.5. I think they are perfect. I hate cramped toes, and had none with this fit. I waited a year to buy these, trying on at least six other brands. None even compared to these. Thanks REI and Asolo. I love these boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots- Love them A woman recommended these boots to me in the store. She said these were top of the line, indestructible, reliable, excellent boots. She's had hers for 12 years and they're still going strong. I haven't had mine that long, but I think she was absolutely right. There was some break-in, but not bad at all. I love the toe guard. They were definitely worth the money in my opinion. I expect to have these boots for a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable From Day One I did not want to get new hiking boots as I was afraid of the "break-in" period and I had recently had an ankle injury. However no worries with these boots. Comfortable from day one on a slightly swollen ankle that I wore a brace on and on the non injured foot one pair of light wool socks and after 8 hour of hiking NO PROBLEMS. Light weight despite the large "look" of the boots, in and out of mud puddles and no wet feet! Great support, did not slide in mud or snow as we hiked (tested in the Colorado Rockies).
