Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, waterproof, long lasting sole I am a landscape designer and use these boots every day for 9 months a year, in mud, water and rocky sites. I have had no problems and I do not even treat them. They have a great cushion insole and ankle support, both of which are great for my ankles each of which has a 2" screw in the joint. I have been using 520s for 6 years, only updating when my ankles need a new boot for support and cushion. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep them waterproofed I have worn these for several years. Make sure you put water proofing seal on the outside before your first trip. I know it is hard to cover the beautiful leather, but it is a must. You will stay dry and protect the seam from water damage that shortens the life of your boot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart after 2 years. Expected more. The soles came COMPLETELY off at the top of a 6,000 foot 3rd class scramble. I had to use paracord to hold my boot together for the descent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boot, but I've had these boots for several years and loved them. Fit like the proverbial glove from day one and protected my feet for many hundreds of miles of hiking in them. This past year I had been using them for conditioning walks because they are rather heavy and weigh too much for the kind of hiking I do now. Unfortunately, during all the rains we had in California last winter, I didn't re-waterproof the boots and the soles started pealing off. When I took them in to be re-glued the cobbler said the inner layer of the sole had begun crumbling and the only way to guarantee the soles wouldn't peal off again would be to rebuild the boot (at half again the cost of the original boot). So, great boot but keep it waterproofed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Asolo Women's Hiking Boots These boots have great ankle support, a comfortable fit, and keep your feet dry. I can hike an entire day with no adverse effects. I recommend them to everyone I know that are buying hiking boots. I even recommend them to people I don't know who are shopping in the store. There may be other great brands out there, but Asolo has my heart AND my feet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most durable pair of boots. Ever. I bought a pair of these last April. They have lasted an entire season working on a backcountry trail crew in Northern Idaho where we were hiking about 70 miles a week in unforgiving terrain. There was no break-in period, and instantly were the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. The finish on the leather does scuff off, but it doesn't affect anything but the looks. They're still holding strong and going into their 2nd season of trail work in Montana.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sole delamination Less than 2 years old and with only limited tread wear the soles have started to delaminate. Both boots in the heel area. The 2 year warranty from the manufacturer is worthless since they inspected the boots and claim that delamination is proof the boots are Totally worn out. This is a common defect that I now see described on many outdoor web sites. Wish I had known.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Ankle Support & Amazing Traction I have had these boots for over 10 years. They have hundreds, if not thousands, of miles on them. I have used them for everything from environmental consulting to backpacking, and they have never let me down. The break in period is tough, and due to the age of them I wanted to start breaking them in. Upon inspection, the soles are so similar I can't believe it. My leather is beat up, but the soles have incredible traction. I can stand on wet rock at a 45+ angle and NOT MOVE. After the break-in period, and give yourself a few months to do that, they are like slippers (stiff slippers, but slippers). Only caveat I have is the insole. I'd recommending replacing that right away.

Questions & Answers

I work in the desert and typically log over 800 hiking miles in the summer. Would these Shoes be too hot?

Asked by: perabanana
​Depending on where you will be hiking and what the air temperature is, you may be too hot. If you will be hiking in extremely hot environments you may want to consider a boot with mesh for more breathability.

I have very wide feet (I currently have a pair of tennis shoes that are size 7 but are double wide), will this boot fit me? I am going to Montana for conservation work and am trying to find a sturdy pair of boots that will accommodate my wide feet.

Asked by: maureenks7
The wide widths are a women's "C". Feet that are double wide may work, but trying them on is the only way to be sure.

I have had these boots for maybe 15 years and they have served me well. I pulled them on to deal with a snow storm and the soles disintegrated. Is there a way to get them resoled?

Recommend these boots for winter (~2500' ascent) hikes using mountaineering snowshoes+microspikes?  Trying to find good boots similar to my old ones (Merrell Whiteout).  I have Asolo summer boots and LOVE them- hoping there is a good Asolo winter boot.

Asked by: 46ergirl
These boots are a great choice. They will also accept strap-on mountaineering crampons.

I wear a size 8 which is usually a 39. This book says that 7.5 is a 30. Should I order an 8 or a 71/2? I worry about them being too small but I do have a narrow foot. Can I order both sizes and return one to the Berkeley store (who does not have these siz

Asked by: Asolo TPS 520 GV Evo Hiki
Most people feel these boots run true to size. If your normal size is an 8, go with the 8. Yes, you can order both sizes and return one or both to the Berkeley store.
