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.

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.
