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.

I did a 9-mile hiking on a rough terrain on the first day with this pair, and it worked out well with minimal blisters on my feet. Right heel side pinched a bit, but not so horribly. Good hiking boots for this price range.

BAM! Finally a stout boot that fits. 14EE Keen boots fit perfect, but didn't hold up. These 15EE fit great and if they last more than two months, I will buy six more pair. Can't wait till fall hunting season. Exactly what I was looking for. Zappos, why shop anywhere else?

Tried the 14E and it was just a little small. Keen boots size 14EE fit great, but these were just a tad tight. I think with a lot of wear they would have stretched enough to work, but couldn't take that chance. I loved the look and they felt like a stout, well built boot. If they came in a EE, I probably would have bought a second pair. I found a pair of Asolo 15EE and confidant they will be the perfect fit. Can't wait to get them. As always, Zappos is great and always willing to work with me and my hard to fit big feet. Customer service second to none!

I used to work in the industry and am very picky about my hiking/approach shoes. After shopping, ordering, returning, re-ordering, re-returning I finally ended up with these new Asolo Salyans. I have to say I am very pleased. I tried a few of other approach/hiking shoes and they just did not fit such as the Keen Targhee II (narrower at the toe), Keen Versatrail (way narrower than a normal Keen). The only shoes that came close were the Scarpa Zen. I have a foot that is just on the slight wide side and Asolo's have always fit me best. The Salyan has a great and sturdy Vibram sole, a tough and highly adjustable upper, and overall these work horses are super lite! Since the shoe laces all the way to the toe they are extremely adjustable also ... love these working-hiking-walking-playing shoes!

I find the shoe disappointing. It has almost no cushioning and feels stiff and hard, even after a week of regular wear. In addition, the overall quality of the shoe and its appearance are not what I would expect for such an expensive shoe.

Great boots. They are versatile- I am using them to go into the city and to go hiking in the burbs. Definitely not for long hikes. They have a snow boot feel so I had to break- them- in.

The ultimate boot. I have worn two pairs of these off and on for over a year now trading one pair when wet. I have a very wide right foot that always gives me problems with other boots but as well with these Asolos...when I don't properly dry and restretch with a shoe stretcher. The difference is that with this design of boot it is possible to keep that right foot comfortable. I hike and bike and do tree work in these boots every day.

My search for a good walking shoe with a WIDE TOEBOX has ended. These shoes are wonderful - worth the price. Most are too narrow in the front for me and have caused some damage to my feet. These are beautifully made, very solid, good traction. I do have to wear slip-in supports just to raise my ankle above the opening and prevent rubbing. Also love that these are not NEON COLORS.

Finally! After buying and returning 13 different pairs of boots, I decided to spend the extra money for these Asolos. I am so glad that I did. The fit is impeccable, especially since I require EE width. Quality workmanship is evident throughout, from the uppers to the footbed to the soles. Yes, this is a substantial boot and requires a break-in period. If you appreciate fine quality in a boot, do not hesitate to spend a bit more for these Asolos.

Out of the box, boot was a lot heavier than expected; it felt stiff and clunky. Tried them on and it was surprisingly narrow. Couldn't imagine having to exchange for wide width and add more bulk to it. Too many cons to justify the price. I exchanged these for Keen's and am happy I did.

I've been a loyal Asolo customer for over three decades, so I've owned a number of their boots. These were as good or better as all the others I've owned: fit, grip, comfort...UNTIL... Unfortunately, these particular boots literally fell apart after about two years and very little use. The sole separated from the bottom of the boot. I contacted Asolo but they were not willing to help since they were over a year old. I get it, they were past the warranty period but for over this much you'd assume they would stay together more than a couple years. I won't be buying any more Asolo's! Buyer beware.

Very slick on the front part, heel part not so slippery. Yes, I had read this in one other reviewers review and yes, it's slippery. Seems that the front ends up resting on just 2 protruding traction hubs and on their edges only. If you put your weight on the front on a slippery surface, you will slide like ice!

I am enjoying these shoes very much. The wide toe box (widest of all the waterproof shoes I tried) enhances foot health on the trail and I find this shoe to be the most pliable (least stiff) of the other waterproof shoes I have tried. They lace up nicely and the laces stay tied. Good footbed traction.

I've owned this particular pair of Asolos for two years now and they are the best hiking boots I've ever had. I own several other Asolo boots for hiking, but I find these to have the best support, perfect medium stiffness, and they are super rugged. Also, the color just can't be beat. I highly recommend these boots, and the other Asolo hiking boots as well.

This is a heavy duty boot that's super comfortable even if you're not wearing a pack. I upgraded to these from my last pair of Asolos that lasted 9 seasons before the sole began to fail.

I've had my Fugitives for 10 years. They've only recently given out on me. They have been by far the best boots I've ever owned. Period. Hands down. As soon as I'm finished writing this review, I'm going to buy myself another pair! The day after I bought them, I took them out for 13 mile day hike in the Appalachians. Looking back, that wasn't the smartest decision I've ever made, but I came back without so so much as a blister. They've NEVER given me issues of any sort. I've put about 650 miles of trail on them plus I've worn them a ton when working outdoors etc. The fugitives offer great support. They've saved me from turning an ankle countless times. And, having had ankle issues in the past, I need something that supports the ankles. My feet have VERY high arches, so I did replace the insole with some SuperFeet insoles, and that adjustment has worked out very well. I found that the insoles that came with the boots did not support my feet enough given my high arches. The tred on these boots has held up very well. Granted it's getting a little worn now. I've had no issues with slipping surfaces (rocks etc). The waterproofing has held up over the years. I've slugged through many creeks and puddles in these without my feet getting wet at all. Bottom line... I highly recommend these boots. They are light enough so that you don't feel like you have on a heavy duty boot, which makes them great for day hiking, yet they offer plenty of support so when you're on the trail for a week with a big pack, your feet are well supported. Also I should mention, that my Fugitives are still very wearable. They have finally developed a horizontal slit along the heel of one of the boots, so I can no longer take them on the trail. However, they'll still get lots of wear as work boots.

Just ordering my 4th pair in 12 years. Unfortunately they get used mostly for work instead of backpacking. They hold up well. lots of concrete and mud. 1 pair I had resoled with good results. If you want a dry do anything heavy duty boot, this works for me.

Great boots if they fit perfectly. I got wide and they fit well... may turn out to be my best ever boots. These boots will break you before you break them. Great support but the fit is what you get out of the box... There will be no forgiveness.
