The Asolo combines comfort with effectiveness, which is largely down to the design of the sole of the boot. Not only is it very light, but its stability, grip and ability to absorb shock are traits that would recommend it to any user. I have trekked in numerous conditions and have never felt any discomfort or had any issues with these boots; from highly abrasive soils in Peru and Iceland, to muddy footpaths in Norway and conditions involving very dry soil in Indonesia.
The lacing mechanism and upper part of the boots mould perfectly to the ankle, preventing excess movement and slipping when walking. There is, however, one potential drawback - the excess fabric in the tongue can sometimes be uncomfortable if you do not lace the boot correctly.
The goretex system is also very effective. The last hike that I went on was two weeks ago in the New Forest, and despite continuous rain for three days, my feet remained dry, which was a feat in itself considering the number of streams I had to cross!
In summary, I would say that the Asolo is designed for someone looking for a top performing, highly reliable, “multi-terrain” product.
