These are the worst hiking boots I have ever owned. The laces on the left boot have pressured a nerve in my foot to the point my left big toe is numb and after 1/2 worth of hiking they consistently hurt my right ankle. Maybe I got a bad pair, but I think they are awful.

This has been a bad winter and I'm glad I purchased these boots. So far so good. They're warm, comfortable, waterproof and look great. What more can you ask for?

I normally wear shoes in a women\'s size 7.5 or 8 EE width. I had trouble finding a women\'s hiking boot that was wide enough in the toe but not too large overall. The wide women\'s Asolos were not wide enough - nor were boots in several other brands. The men\'s Asolo in a 7D - considered Medium for men - was the perfect solution. It\'s comfortably wide in the toe area and fits well overall. I broke these in for a few 1 mile walks, then went on a 4 mile steep hike with no problems at all. These boots offer great comfort and support.

Bought this Asolo type about 15 years ago. I have never considered another. High arch support if you like that. I would wear these everyday for everything if I was not worried about wearing them out. hands down the most comfortable foot wear I own.

One review I read here said that these are not for every day wear... I beg to differ! I have extremely flat feet, and in addition to orthotic inserts, I need good ankle support, so I wear these boots every single day, they are all I wear (except for dress-up situations). These (and a couple of other Asolo models I've had) are the best ever! My only problem is that after 1 to 2 years of every day wear, the ankle support loosens a little too much for what I need so I have to buy new ones, but for most people I could see these lasting for years, especially if not using them every day.

I'd also recommend: None, these are the best.
