Simply the best hiking / backpacking boot that you can buy. On my third pair now after wearing the vibram down to nothing on the first two pairs without any other issues.

I purchased these shoes to wear for a two-week trip to Ireland and they did not disappoint. My feet stayed dry in the pouring rain and we had a lot of it. The reasons I purchased them was for the narrow heel, wide toe box, and lacing mechanism. I love the shoes and they were very comfortable; however, they seemed to not hold traction on wet flat smooth surfaces.

I have a right foot that is wider than my left. I was able to get these boots in an E width. Handled both feet very well. I use these boots for day hikes. I have another boot (LOWA) that I use for backpacking. I have my own orthodics so the arch support question has no meaning for me.

Can I say I love this shoe! It is exactly what I've been looking for...nice neutral, sturdy, waterproof, light hiker with a wide toe box...but I'm returning it - because my heel slips. If only there was a second set of lacing holes at the top like running shoes have. It fits my prescription orthotics perfectly...but my heel slips, so back it goes. This is a great shoe if you don't have a narrow heel.

I bought these for my husband and he loves them. He wore them all day right out the box. He could not believe that were that comfy. We will be buying more in the future.

I have a very narrow foot and my arches have fallen so I need generous arch support. These Asolo's fit extremely well with 'superfeet' insoles added. I LOVE the narrowness of the boot and the fact that I can tighten up the laces around my ankle. They feel very natural from the minute I put them on. NO break in period. Love them

I purchased this boot about 6 months ago. It fit true to size and had no break in period. Fabulous boot. Lots of support. I hike every day in them. I am thinking about getting a back up pair. Redbud, great color.

Amazing boots. Made with materials and craftsmanship rarely seen these days. Little to no break-in period for me, at least. I expect these will be around for me for years.

I ordered three pairs of shoes and probably would have kept this pair IF it hadn't been so very much too big. I normally wear a 7 or a 7.5 depending on the shoe. I got these in a 7.5, but they felt like 8's. They did not hurt my bunions, at least not as long as it took to try them on.

I've owned these for two years now. They don't even look worn at all. The soles are amazingly tough. They look great and are super comfortable as an everyday shoe.

I have long, narrow feet, with high arches. I always have a hard time finding shoes and boots that fit well, so I was super excited that these did! I have worn them for several hikes and backing trips and do not get blisters or hotspot. But they cause me plantar fasciitis. I am very active and I first thought that it was just a fluke or too many miles one week, but after several weeks recovering, I used them again, and boom plantar fasciitis again. The sole has quite a lot of torsion. I cannot recommend them for mixed terrain hiking. My Brooks running shoes are better for my feet, even hiking. I have never had any trouble with my feet before these - except finding a good secure narrow fit. They have been wonderful in waterproof and lightweight styling. But it is not worth the wrecking my feet!

I recently wore a pair of Asolo Agent GV's for three weeks straight on a trip to Chile, Peru and Easter Island. The trip included a four day, 30 mile hike along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. I tried on 11 other pairs of hiking shoes before I found these. (Thanks, Zappos!) The shoes worked perfectly for me; they are some of the best shoes I've ever owned. The inside stayed dried as we walked through puddles and wet grass and weeds. The soles provided excellent grip as we climbed over wet, mossy steep rocks. The sole was rigid enough to support my flat-ish feet, but never so stiff I felt like I was walking on boards. The width in the toe box was the critical factor for me; my toes never felt squished or cramped. Finally, they are stylish enough I could wear them with dress pants (well, as dress as you can get while hiking) and look presentable at a nice restaurant or evening out. They have become like an old friend, bringing back memories of a wonderful trip each time I look at them. Highly recommended!

Unbelievable product. Have been using Merrell for years and years. Asolo is so much more durable and architect that I am happy to spend the extra cost. Italians know how to make a boot that will outlast with comfort all the other hiking boots I've EVER bought. Thank you Asolo

Unbearably narrow shoe. Asolo makes shoes for Europeans. Large feet do not exist apparently in Europe. So, when they design their shoes in sizes 12+ they simply guess. They only account for growth I guess in a single plane. What results is a shoe that has the width of a size 9 but the length of a 12-13. These shoes were stupid uncomfortable in size 13. I wanted them to work. They look nice. The lacing to the toe, the soles seem rugged. But the padding and interior were not thick enough to ease the seams and tongue welting, to they just made blisters in under 30 minutes. Terrible shoe for anyone with larger feet. Terrible.

I am writing this review to inform my fellow hikers of a little uncommon piece of knowledge that I wish I had known before buying the ASOLIO Fugitive boots. You must realize that the boots are designed to fail within about five years. By fail I mean delaminate. Let me explain. Last week I was two miles from my car near Sedona when the soles of both shoes my ASOLO boots began to disconnect. I toppled head first when a sole caught a rock on the trail. I landed on my hands and scraped my right palm. This is when I noticed the soles were coming apart! After about a quarter of a mile the right sole became so detached that I was force to remove it and walk in my sock. After another half mile the other left foot sole became too loose to walk on. At this point I was forced to hobble in my socks back to my car. The pain of this ordeal was quite intense. I had these boots about four years and had used them about 10 times for hiking. This should not have happened and I feel it is unacceptable. I requested a refund or replacement but was told that this often happens and to go find a cobbler by their phone contact. What? This is common! I cannot believe that a pair of boots so highly recommended is doomed to failure. The only companies I found that provide an acceptable guarantee were Cabelas and LLBean (both these companies claim to guarantees their boots for life under normal wear and tear). Having your boots fall off your feet is not normal.

I've loved Asolo hiking boots for just about 20 years now. I'm not specifically sure what the anniversary is for, but I can say the boots are awesome! I ordered the black with yellow laces and couldn't be happier. These are my daily driver for work and recreation. Italian foot molds for my feet perfectly! I'm definitely a fan!

Wow, 2 day shipping is ACTUALLY 2 day shipping..even over the weekend. THANKS!! Great boots that feel a little stiff, but comfortable right out of the box. Bought these without trying them on. I was told by the Asolo rep on line that they are built on the same last as the 520. Tried on some 520's at REI and the rep was right. The Shiraz fit the same.Fits like a true 10.5 med.

These shoes are just what I was looking for to take to Ireland this summer. They are comfortable, water-proof, and have the large toe box I need. The lacing style gives the ability to loosen or tighten the toe box which is perfect for a long trip. The color is neutral but I would have preferred a gray. They should not be too warm with a thin sock. So glad I tried this brand and love Zappos extensive reviews and free shipping.

I love this hiking boots. This is the second pair I get. The first served me well for my hiking needs for 5 years, never a blister, great quality and comfort. I didn't want to be disappointed so I got the exact same pair again. Highly recommend!

So glad I bit the bullet and got these hiking shoes! I detest wearing shoes that constrict. I have a wide foot. Mostly wear Danskos to work and Chacos in the summer. Have plantar fasciitis. Going hiking this summer. I tried the Outlaw GV and Keen Voyageur Gore-Tex to compare. Asolo wins hands down for me. The fit my wide foot. Roomy toe box. Yet look slender. I have a somewhat high instep and these fit well without having to adjust to a straight style lacing method (as opposed to traditional criss-cross style). They are supportive and comfortable. Asolo has put thought into lacing. The lacing can be adjusted to suit your comfort. And the laces do not come untied. I don't even have to double-tie. They've become my go-to walking shoes this spring, The Gore-Tex works well in the wet morning dew. The reason I preferred the Asolo over the Keen Voyageur's was that the Keens were not as slim looking due to the the thicker padded collar and rugged sole. They just looked a bit clunky. And they had bright laces and trim. I prefer the more subdued style of the Asolo's. And they are suitable for the hiking I plan to be doing. A note on sizing: I ordered my normal 7.5 US size. However, the size tag on the shoe sizes 7.5 US and 39 1/3 EU. This may be causing some on confusion on the sizing.
