    Asolo Flame GTX Hiking Boots - Men'sis rated4.5455out of5by11.
    Rated2out of5byfromVery unconfortable - cups dig into the heelsI have used these shoes during two multiday backpacking trips, one in the Wind River range (65 mi) and the other across Zion (50mi). I have been backpacking for many years and sore feet have never been an issue until I purchased these Asolo. My main problem is with the heel cups which are way too stiff and with no padding. During long uphills with an heavy backpack, my heels get increasingly sore after 2-3 days. By day 3, the pain get excruciating whenever going uphill. I thought it was maybe a break-in issue but the same problem occurred as well on my second long hike. Additionally the sole insert is a total joke. A thin piece of cardboard would give exactly the same results. Honestly I think this is a total shame that a shoe in that price range would come with such inadequate inserts. Overall I am very disappointed with these shoes and need to have them replaced.

    Rated5out of5byfromFantastic bootsI live in the Pacific Northwest where rain is more often then not. I walk quite a bit and am very concerned about keeping my feet dry while. These boots do the job perfect! I also need a "cross" boot that can be out on the trail and still be used at work. Again, these boots do the job perfect. Would I buy these again? In a New York minute! I have used Asolo for 25 years and will continue.

    Rated5out of5byfromVery Comfortable and Capable Hiking BootI usually get by with some decent trail shoes for hiking and backpacking but after an unusually brutal backpacking trip I decided to invest in some legit hiking boots. I had three main criteria when I was looking for a hiking boot. Comfort, support, and price. I tried on every pair of boots in the $200 dollar range at REI. I tried Asolo's other models in the same price range and was amazed to get very different feels from each of them. All of the other models seemed to have a shallow heal cup and I could immediately feel pressure on my heal. I bought the Flame GTX and was impressed with the secure feel with no hot spots. A week later I wore the boots for Crow Pass trail. 24 miles in 11 hours. I knew using boots that weren't broken in was a serious risk but I was determined to give them a try. I was amazed to find that I didn't have a single blister and my feet were never wet. It had been raining for weeks before the hike and we encountered plenty of mud and flooded trails. It felt good to not worry about my foot placement with the mud and water. I could just hike on through. All in all a very solid boot. I was impressed with every aspect of the boot. I liked the ability to tighten the lower half of the boot separate from the top half. It allowed me to adjust the boot for various terrain and comfort. The traction was superb. I never felt unstable on mud, snow, or loose rocks. The coolest thing to note was the small "brake" under the arch of the foot. I was amazed to find that it actually worked. We encountered lots of wet tree roots and rocks that I would often step upon and I could feel the brake hold my foot in position while I hiked across. It's hard to explain but you can see it in the picture. I guess it's called the "asobrake". Whatever, it worked! So pick up a pair of the Asolo Flame GTX boots and enjoy the hike.

    Rated4out of5byfromVery Happy with These BootsI bought these boots after trying on a few other Asolo boots. These seemed the most comfortable (my foot is kind of narrow). I was surprised at how light they were for being a full boot. The soles do show some wear (I have about 30 miles on them or so currently), but support is great. I carry a heavy load and have no problems. You don't feel any pointy rocks beneath your steps, and the traction is fantastic. Maybe the reason the soles show wear because of slightly softer material? I don't know, but traction is great. Very resistant to water. My feet have never gotten wet, and I've stood in the middle of several icy streams just to see if my feet stay dry. I don't use any aftermarket insoles in these, but I may try just for comparison's sake. I do hike in REI Moreno wool Expedition grade socks though.

    Rated5out of5byfromtop 5 bootsFirst off I'm 6-6 250 lbs I'm a big guy not your average hiker/backpacker. These are one of the best pair of boots I have owned. They made it threw Ben Lomond Ut once, Luis peak Ut 4 times, Waterfall canyon Ut 12 times, 4 days @ yellowstone, Bear canyon Az once, 20+ differ trails in Az, about 75 fishing trips and countless trails across Utah. My pack is usually between 20-80 lbs depending on what I'm doing. With all that abuse they are still in pretty good condition. Only time my feet got wet is when i climbed in the drink after a fish. I will be definitely buying a 2nd pair.

    Rated5out of5byfromFully AdjustableI bought this boot for extended backpack trips and peak bagging in the North Cascades. I haven't had a chance to use them in the high country yet, but did manage to go do a desert canyon trip. I especially liked the ability to adjust the lacing both above the ankle and below. Traction was superior on loose shale and slick rock surfaces. The high cut kept out all trail debris and gave extra support while climbing on the cliff walls. The only con is the insoles are a little thin. I'll be replacing them with a better after market product

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat hiking boot!I just returned from backpacking in the Grand Canyon-25+ miles including the Hermit Trail. The boots were very comfortable and I never had any blisters. Moreover, I had only logged about 12 miles of hiking beforehand so they were almost new. I am very happy with these boots and highly recomend them.
