Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots I have ever owned I've had these boots about two and a half years now. I take terrible care of them, and wear them almost every day. They have been through Egypt, the climbed the Sinai mountains, wandered about Mongolia and China, the rocks and deserts of Jordan, just about every part of Israel, and the hills and bogs of Ireland. I use them for climbing, hiking, running, working, everything. Snow, water, sand, rocks, these boots put up with everything. As I said, I don't take good care of them. Probably misused them in about every way possible, but they are still good. The tread is starting to get low, that's about it. I can't recommend these enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable, well built boots. I have had these boots for the past 3 years and am extremely impressed. They are still going strong after hundreds and hundreds... maybe getting close to a thousand trail miles. I am an avid backpacker, volunteer for search and rescue, and for the last six months, I've been working for the Washington Conservation Corps. as a trail builder... My work means I'm out hiking every day putting these boots through the gauntlet. They are used not only as boots, but as tools in my work as they are often used to move loosened dirt off of the trail, kicking rock off the trail as I hike, etc. They are still 100% waterproof. BUY THEM NOW! You won't be dissapointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, reliable, fantastic construction With regards my feet, there's one thing you need to know: I have EXTREMELY high arches. After trying on every boot in REI Seattle, twice (not even kidding), and trying a multitude of lacing patterns, I chose these. I've only put in ~100 miles so far, but I know I made a great choice. The construction is the best, as you'd expect from Asolo. I am still getting slight hot spots on my heels on long hikes, but this is definitely my odd foot shape and not the boots. A little further foot-hardening and breaking in and it's going to be great. As with all hiking boots, fit is the key. If these guys fit you, I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So So I have spent over 30 days in the field putting in 5 to 10 miles each day with these boots. I have used the boots hiking trails, blazing trails, in the mud and granite of Colorado to sand and slick rock of the Utah desert. Overall the boots have held up well and perform as advertised. My issue with the boots, and why I would not buy them if I had to do it at again, is breathability; it seems that my feet are either hot and sweaty or cold as ice cubes. I have tried multiple different sock and sock combinations that has not helped. I don't mind the heat so much as the cold! I'm looking in to getting heated insoles to see if that will help?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 years of heavy use These boots are incredibly durable, and surprisingly light weight. I am a forester and wear these boot 5-7 days a week and average 30 miles a week in them. The majority of the time I am hiking off trail through dense brush, blackberries and rocky creek beds. The boots have been great! After one year of abuse I did replace the sole at a local cobbler but the rest of the boot was in great shape. Sure there were scuffs, but it was all superficial and did not impact their performance. This past year I slacked off and have not been treating them regularly and now the leather is beginning to leak. I am definitely buying another pair of these in the next few months!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boot, with one major problem I've owned two pairs of these boots. They are amazing boots. In fact, I think they are THE long distance backpacking boot. However, there is one big problem: the soles de-laminate (as in come off). I had the first pair for a year and a half before the sole started coming off. Brought them back and got a new pair. Had the second pair for another year and a half and again the sole started coming off. These are great boots, but Asolo needs to up their manufacturing tolerances! A sole on a boot should not come off that soon! Especially on a [$] Italian leather boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boots for the Man in Charge This is my 2nd pair of Power Matic 200's. 1st pair made it through 2 years of almost everyday construction work and harsh environments. My feet stay dry in hot weather and warm in the cold. Very comfortable with good ankle and arch support. 1 week easy break in time. Fast lace up and removal. Awesome looking. Best boots on the market!!

Are these boots compatible with flexible crampons, and capable of staying dry during a full day on glaciers?

Asked by: Climber100
The Power Matic 200 GV Gore-Tex Hiking Boots are crampon compatible. The Gore-Tex waterproof membrane will keep your feet dry. Gaiters are also recommended for glacier travel. https://www.rei.com/c/gaiters

Asolo Power Matic 200 GV Gore-Tex Hiking Boots - Men's: In the description they say imported. Duh! It does not say where they are imported from. Are these boots Romanian or Chinese? Do you sell any hiking or mountaineering boots that aren't Chinese?

Asked by: Sparky8920
​These boots made in Romania. Please keep in mind the country of origin can change over time and some items are sourced from multiple countries.

Asked by: jmjuno
The Power Matic 200 GVs have been known to run true to size. If you are currently wearing a US 9.5 in Asolo, we would recommend sticking with that size.
