First of all, Zappos is the only way to buy shoes. I have tried many different boots through them until I found the Asolo TPS535V boots. Their service is fantastic. I also had a pair of these develop a flaw in the toe box within a few months. Zappos immediately sent me a brand new pair and I sent the old pair back in...awesome. Now for the boots. I now own two pairs of these boots as they are the only thing I wear. I am an outdoorsman in the hills of NE PA and I own a tree service. These boots can take anything I dish out. I have a really wide right foot and these boots can adjust enough to compensate. Thank you Zappos for your patience.

I purchased these boots for a three day hike from one side of the Grand Canyon to the other. My friends thought I was crazy to not break them in before using them. I had no problems at all. No blisters,rubbing or soreness. I installed superfeet inserts. I had these boots for about 12 years and the soles finally fell off. Probably from the many miles put on them and many nights with my feet propped up to close to the campfire. I was devastated until I saw they still make this boot. I ordered another pair to take hiking in the mountains of North Carolina and they are just as comfortable. I will put the super feet inserts in them and walk them until the soles fall off. Just hope Asolo still makes these boots 10-12 years from now.

I don't know if all Asolo products are made as well as this one but the pair I received had first rate quality. The picture doesn't do this boot justice. It materials looks much nicer in person. Excellent fit and finish. Both tongue gussets were proportionally even allowing the tongue to sit properly centered, good luck finding that level of consistency on a Lowa boot. The stitching was excellent quality and workmanship. The padding in the tongue and shaft are very good. I wear a 10.5 in the major brands and this boot is no different; so, I would say that it is true to size for this type of boot. The boot fits my average foot very well and has a very comfortable gait while walking, along with good ankle flex and shock absorption from the midsole. The outsole has a really good self cleaning pattern. I typically don't use the factory insole and this boot is no different. The midsole has a very flat arch which means, in my opinion, if you want an average arch or you need a specific type of arch support you will need to remove the factory insole and put your own insole in the boots. I presume most people do this anyway so I would not call this a negative but more or less a need-to-know of what to expect since some boots do offer more arch support from the midsole. Very breathable and great for hiking.

Cute lavender hiking shoe. Not too clunky. Stiff and supportive. Appropriately heavy but not too. Moderate toebox. Well-made. Perfect size for me, unfortunately, the wrong last. I give it 4's because it didn't work for me. I wear 8.5-9's. These fit well at 8.5.

I have been wearing this boot for about four years now and with the exception of work I wear them daily. I weigh 280lbs and I am 6' tall and I have not worn them out I beat the crap out of them and they don't miss a beat. To Asolo people I say job well done!

Guys, I spent a lot of time researching before purchasing these boots. I'm an avid hiker and have hiked places like New Zealand, Patagonia, Peru, Indonesia. I've also walked the Camino de Santiago 2 times for a total of 1100 miles crossing Spain, the Pyrenees and the Picos de Europe. I call Hawaii home and we have some of the hardest and most beautiful hikes in the world and I hike regularly. I was looking for a lightweight, low-profile, zero drop-type boot with a large toe box that would be durable and last on the lava here in Hawaii. I thought this boot was it. Today I hiked to the top of Stairway to Heaven, from the Moanalua Middle, which is an intermediate trail at best. I've never had a more difficult time on such an easy trail. I believe the tread pattern/design is poorly designed. The middle section of the tread is cut away and too hard, leaving you zero traction from the mid foot. The heel tread is too smoothed and rounded; it doesn't give you anything to grip/brake with going down. Even on the flat sections of dry ridge, I felt like I was on butter. In fact the boots had so little traction that I was reduced to 3 inch baby steps going down some of the least steep ridges I've hiked here. I'm glad I made it down alive frankly, and I'd hate to think what might happen to a more novice hiker had they been in these boots. People in flip-flops and Nike Frees seemed to have better traction than I. Another major flaw design that I might as well mention, hoping Asolo reads this, is the stitching in the heel support. They run a piece of supportive leather through the heel when that should be one solid piece. The piece of leather they run around the back of the heel digs into your heel creating hotspots. If you're like me and do a lot of extremely vertical hikes, you know how important it is to be able to sit into the heel of a boot as you ascend so you don't burn out your calves trying to go up. Because of the rubber or the pattern of this tread, this is the worst boot I've owned. It's a shame too because other than that, which is probably the most important element of a good boot, the boot was constructed, or appeared to be constructed quite durably. I would love to see Asolo remedy this design flaw as I feel that it could potentially lead to injury or fatality. I myself, a extremely avid hiker, was at the mercy of this treadless boat on several occasions, hoping I'd regain some traction before sliding off the edge of a steep ridge. It's not a great feeling.

This is a great boot...but I've got a bunion that caused a hot spot. No fault of the boot. They're spendy yet uber high quality. Think I'll try a different model that might have a little more give in the area of the bunion.

This is the most awesome work shoe I have ever bought. Lightweight, comfortable, weatherproof and it has made my work day a joy again. No more pain in my feet or knees. Everyone comments on them as to how great they look too.

Great Boots, 2nd pair I have owned. When I wore out m first pair I was happy to find out Asolo was still making this model so I could get a new pair.

Well built, sturdy shoes. Some of Asolo's lighter weight shoes (like the Jumla) have a narrow heel that I find unstable. The Jumla doesn't have this problem. It is narrow in the width. I have slightly wider than average feet, but most shoes fit me fine. They have some ankle support, but can be slipped on and off because of the smooth transition from top to foot bed along the tongue.

This is a very well made boot and would have worked for me except the heel doesn't have enough cushion for my foot issues. They look great and look top quality.

Just hiked Rim-to-Rim 24 miles at the Grand Canyon. These shoes were amazing! I had them 3 weeks in advance for training and never had one problem and they really didn't need breaking in. They are wider across the top of the foot than you're likely used to but the functionality was 1000% awesome. I'd buy these again (when needed). Light, waterproof, comfy.

My husband loves these boots, he wears them to work everyday. The leather outlasts the soles which lasts about a year for him wearing them down everyday.

Asolo is the best boot on the market, bar none! I have had three pair, first ones bought in Pamplona Spain, worn for three years and many backpacking and mountain climes in the Northeastern US. Had the Fugitive GTX, I just got the TPS 535 last Christmas as a requested gift from the wife. So far, a few winter hikes, great support, nice fit, comfortable with good cold weather performance with my Katoohla micro-spikes in the White Mountains. I am using them for weekend hikes now, and plan a few climbs in July. They are the best bang for the buck.

I first learned of Asolos from one of the few women high mountain guides of Chamonix who led us on the classic Tour du Mount Blanc hike many years ago.I assumed she knew her boots. My daughter immediately bought a pair and left her old boots on the side of the road. This is my second pair; it took probably 10 years and at least 2000 miles to wear out the first. They are sturdy, long lasting, and comfortable from the moment you put them on. I do a lot of back country day hiking in the Southern Appalachians, over rocky and steep trails. These have proven to be good all-season boots. It is a good fit for women with a nice roomy toe box and comfort all around.

These boots are made very well however they run too large for my narrow feet. Even though I wear orthotics and two pairs of socks they do not fit well for me. I have tried to break them in but my feet are getting hot spots and blisters. Not to mention sore. This review does not reflect the quality of these boots. They are made well. All seams are smooth and finished. Great grip on the sole. Nice padded interior ankle shaft. I wish these did fit. I am rating these three stars only because they do not fit.

I love these boots, I work around railroad tracks with lots of rocks & these boots have kept me from twisting my ankle with the support it has around the ankles & I have never felt the rocks on my feet like you do with most boots. I wear them every day and is the best boot I have ever worn. I just wish they could be polished.

These are overall a very solid and well executed shoes for light hiking and mild/wet conditions. They feature quality design and materials. They provide a leek silhouette without unnecessary embellishments. They are waterproof. They have a sturdy midsole that is not too stiff. They flex nicely in at the ball of the foot. The suede has drawbacks in wet weather. The shoelaces start to shred immediately with use, probably in part because of the metal guides. The rear heel area is stiff and caused hot spots for me, beware of blister area here.

Great fit, great support, sturdy and comfortable - takes a while to break in, but once you have worn them for a couple months, they are the best boot I've worn.

Vasque no longer makes the model I ordered for my previous six pairs. I was not looking forward to a change. These boots are stiffer and heavier though after break in I have to say they are solid preforming boots. The lacing system is exceptional, and so far the waterproofing is working.

I love these shoes. The Asolo last fits me perfectly, with a narrow heel cup (so important to avoid heel slippage) and yet a roomy toe box. These shoes seem very well made, and are lightweight despite the Gore-Tex liner. The soles are nicely grippy, with good technical features, and the tongue is gusseted, which is key to keeping ticks out of your shoes (I wish the description mentioned this!). I, too, wish Zappos carried more of the colors, but the Wool color is more attractive in person than in the photos, and personally, because I wear hikers exclusively on the trail, I don't care that much how they look as long as they fit and function. That said, these are good looking enough to walk in in an urban environment as well. I also considered the Asolo Ember (which is an excellent pair of shoes if you don't need waterproofing and a gusseted tongue, light, supportive and nimble feeling); the Salomon Ellipse GTX (quality shoe with good lacing system but gave me heel slippage and felt too clunky overall); and the Merrell Moab Waterproof (bit too squishy for serious hiking, but would make a great beating around shoe). Zappos, no one beats your selection and service! Muchas gracias!!
