I bought these boots, based on online reviews, for backpacking and hiking. They are the most incredible shoes/boots I have ever owned. They are like wearing little bomb shelters on your feet! The support is fantastic and the durability amazing. I have worn them backpacking, climbing rocky hills and wading shallow creeks; I am impressed! The only negative I can find about these boots would be the weight and slightly "clunky" size. However, if you need a durable boot for hard wear, this is it!

I just ordered a new pair of Asolo Styngers in the spice color. My current pair of Styngers are 9 years old this summer and have only just begun to leak around the toe. I loved them the minute I put them on and discovered how supportive they were. These boots are great for hiking (especially if you're an ankle turner like I am) and can also double as winter boots that can withstand slush. I'm so glad Asolo (and Zappos) continues on with this model and I will continue to buy these boots as long as they exist.

Nice rugged boot with excellent foot and ankle support. Foot padding is almost non existent and made my feet sore within a half hour. Luckily there is plenty of room for inserts.

I absolutely love these boots! I have been searching for shoes that fit my slightly wide, slightly tall feet that need an insert. I have ordered and sent back 30 shoes in the last year until these ones. I put my orthotic in, and never thought twice about it. I went to Peru and Galapagos two weeks later and never got blisters. I wore them pretty much every day for the last three months and still, no blisters. I am very happy with this purchase!

These would be the perfect boots if they came with better soles. Comfortable, lightweight, waterproof; unfortunately, the soles on mine wore down very quickly, and they never had good traction to begin with. I'm looking into options for having mine re-soled with Vibrams.

These are excellent quality, very attractive, and very comfortable. I have slightly narrower than average feet, but these are perfect for me. Bear that in mind if you have wide feet or are borderline in size you may need to move up. Looks are terrific and the build is solid. These are excellent shoes. The full toe to ankle lacing provides the ability to tailor the fit.

This is my second year with Asolo Khumbu and it should be getting a lot more love. I use this boot for climbs in the Adirondack National Park and have been chasing my 46 in a pair of these. The construction of the boot allows you to lock your foot in place and prevents toe band on the way down the mountains. The rubber rands and waterproof Gore-Tex have kept my feet high and dry on the less than perfect days. It has a nice rocker that allows the foot to pass easily through your step and its narrow profile allows for precise foot placement. I usually wear a "D" width and this boot feels true to size as it gently hugs the forefoot without too much squeeze. Lastly the carrot suede finish cleans up nicely after a trip through the Dack mud that is common in the low lands. All in all I have been very pleased with this boot and it gives my aging ankles the support they need.

The Asolo TPS 520 GV is great for what it is: a heavy duty backpacking boot. Actually, it dresses up okay too. This was the one shoe I brought for a month walking trip in the highlands, with a few odd nights in town; it doesn't climb well but that's not what it's made for. The quality of the leather, soles, and waterproofing, are all excellent. Sole rigidity is mildly stiff (for gnarly off trail load carrying, get a stiffer boot if you're going far) -- fine for a casual stroll, and again, plenty of boot for carrying a heavy load on a long trail. This is a relatively heavy and warm boot, which can be just the thing, but do factor it in. On fit: true to size. The "Asolo fit" does, like La Sportiva, tend toward the low volume foot, however they offer wide sizes (I doubt an EEE foot would fit even in the wide side -- but maybe doable if you broke it in carefully). For general reference on sizing, Asolo and Sportiva tend to best fit low volume feet; Scarpa tends towards high volume feet; and Lowa is about in the middle. They're all great brands, it's just something to know as a quick rule of thumb. The higher volume boots give more room in the toe box (which can save you from frostbite) but also tends towards heel lift (which can quickly give you blisters and make you very sad) unless you have a wide heel, or know some good lacing voodoo. Sadly, my feet grew a size before I had the chance to wear these into ruin, but I mention it to say I believe that would have represented a lot of wearing.

The shoe fit perfectly. The shoe is very rigid but comfortable. The construction is excellent. Eventhough the exterior is very hard, the lining cushions the foot very nicely. The sole is stiff enough to protect the foot when walking on uneven surfaces. The tongue stays centered and does not slip to the left or right and is padded so that there is no unequal pressure fron the laces. Ankle support is excellent. I can't say enough about how good the shoe fit. I have a very average size eight foot, not wide or narrow. I particularly like the fit in the heel, not tight but not loose. I have worn the shoes every day for more than three weeks and like them better every day. I orderd the shoes on a Monday morning and received the shoe on Wednesday. Very fast delivery! I was somewhat surprised at the color. I orderd brown and they look almost black. Black or brown, I could not care less. The shoes are not cheap but it is nice to get your moneys worth.

Much narrower than expected, particularly since I ordered the 'wide' version. If you like this boot but have wider feet, look at the Asolo Fugitive GTX instead. Nice quality boot.

I have no plans to climb a mountain; however, I have a new puppy who loves to trek through woods and along hilly trails. Wearing regular training shoes meant wet feet. I wanted hiking boots that would provide great support for my ankles, look stylin' and, most of all, be comfortable. I ordered four pair and kept these. GREAT fit. Immediate comfort. True to size. LOVE these shoes.

Super, super happy with these boots. After finally killing my old pair of Fusion GTXs after walking through sewage/whatever left over from Hurricane Sandy (actually melted the soles off the boots -- NOT good) I was looking for a replacement. These come up a bit higher on the ankles and are heavier duty than the Fusions, but they're just as comfortable. Can't wait to put in a ton of miles -- largely comfortable out of the box except for some seams near the anklebone protrusions which have broken in after a couple of weeks of wear.

Very happy with these shoes so far, the fit is much better than I was expecting; I thought Asolo tends to run narrow but these fit my slightly wide feet (almost E) perfectly. I also ordered my normal size and the length is perfect as well. I use Asolo hiking boots in a wide size.

This is just the boot I've been looking for. The fit is great along with the styling...not as "heavy" looking as some of the ankle hiking boots. Very impressed with the boot so far.

My previous boots were Salomon Quests, which were a little too flexible, but very comfortable. The Asolo boot I'd owned previous to those was the TPS 520. They were too narrow, even in the medium width. I purchased the Drifter because it seemed to closely mirror the Quest. I've worn them about twenty times now, with typical trip lengths of four miles, and they are excellent. Comfortable, but with plenty of support. They are surprisingly warm in our Montana winter, a pleasant discovery. I would recommend them to anyone.

Incredible boots! I have owned many, many hiking boots while guiding up in Canada. I wish that these boots would have been available then. These are absolutely the most comfortable "backpacking" boots I have ever owned. They are perfect for any kind of hiking you do. I have always purchased boots (for the last 30 years!) with Vibram soles as well...the best. I highly recommend this boot for all of your hiking, day or backpacking.

I bought the Fugitive GTX to replace my Salomon Wings GTX almost 2 years ago. I only use them for hiking and rainy days. First of all, I really loved the Salomons. They were super light weight and felt great. That is, until I quickly wore the soles down and my feet would begin to bruise. I went through 2 pairs in 3 years. I picked up a pair of Asolos at REI's too try something different. That was 2 years ago and they are still holding up fine. I hike steep, rocky and very rugged terrain. I also walk a lot of lava caps which are common in the Sierra foothills, and very rough on boots. The Asolos are tough. They are also quite rigid with great support. I still can't feel the surface texture under my foot after 2 years even though the tread is starting to wear off. They also still look great. There is no sole separation or unraveling of materials or stitching. I have a wide foot but D width actually worked. There was no nasty surprise in the sizing. All in all, it's a long wearing, good looking boot with tons of lasting support. Plus it's made in the Ukraine. How cool is that?

I have worn these almost daily for 6 years on each coast of the states two other continents and the Southern Hemisphere. Every year hiking in the smoky mountains of Tennessee and almost every day around town. They just keep going. Plus with Zappos free both ways shipping, why worry about size? Best pair of hiking boots I've ever owned.

Fabulous hiking boot! This boot is lightweight with great traction and support. My hikes are typically rocky and this boot has a vibram sole and sticks to the terrain. I find the fit is slightly large, I normally wear a 10, but in this boot I wear a 9.5. My foot is narrow, but because of the lacing system it fits perfectly. As others have said, Asolo could do a better job with the insert, but I just remove and use my own. I love Patagonia boots, but they are not making them any longer, so this is my new go to boot as I hike over 30 miles weekly. I always have a brand new pair ready to go!

I bought these for a hiking trip to Israel. I put Birkenstock inserts under the factory insoles and wore them quite a bit to break them in. I just returned and they performed beautifully. My feet never hurt and I had no hint of blisters after much hiking and walking. The soles were not as good on the many stone surfaces, wet and dry, that we encountered but great for all others. Asolos typically run narrow and I cannot wear them but these were just wide enough for my wide feet.
