    Travel further on your next backpacking trip thanks to the comfort and versatility of the Asolo Fugitive GTX Men's Light Hiking Boots. Though they weigh only 3lb (size 8.5), these Asolo boots provide excellent support and traction with their burly Syncro outsole, and have an ultra-secure lacing system, which reduces heel lift. The Fugitive Boots' Gore-Tex lining keeps your feet bone dry on soaking-wet days, while their low-profile design makes the hike so comfortable you'll think you're strolling through the park in your sneakers. Once you take a trip in these sporty hiking boots, your old clodhoppers are doomed to gather dust in the closet.

    One boot for everything

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I've had this boot atop of 14,000 peaks, crampons on, snow shoes and hiking/backpacking from 14,000 to -282 FT in Death Valley. In 10 years I have only had to replace this boot once, these things stand up to anything you can think of.

    BEST boot I have ever worn! Some issues!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10.5

    Every time I wear these boots - I am amazed all over again!
    Major difference over other boots?
    -Lug soles are more narrow than foot chamber
    -KNOW EXACTLY where your foot is in relation to the terrain!
    -Dramatically more security & confidence on tricky footing!
    -No other mfgr does this - (as far as I know)?
    LOVE these things!!!
    The bootmakers in Romania - really know their stuff!
    The light weight is excellent and Gore-Tex is waterPROOF
    Feel a joy & boost when walking - due to right amount of "rocking" shape to sole.
    1. Not a VIBRAM lug, so a bit slippery on some wet surfaces, but getting better w/ use.
    2. Warning: DO NOT buy directly from Italy!!!
    -Draconian return policy (they sent wrong size).
    - I came out OK thanks to PayPal who paid half ($25) of $50 return shipping & prevented them from auto-shipping replacement - so only lost $25.
    -ZERO CS policy from warehouse in Italy!

    Not too Happy with Asolo

    • Fit: True to size

    I wanted this shoes so much, that after i bought nice Mammut Shoes I decided to spend extra $200 once I found this Asolo in a store
    After trip to Patagonia I am very disappointed with Asolo. Before a trip i hike at least 100 km in our local mountains to make sure they will fit my feet better.
    But i have to say - for me they are not comfortable and i felt a lot of pain in my feet
    My wife has similar Asolo shoes, and in our last day of "W" trekking in Torres del Paine they get broken after only 3 years of very little use ( 3 Trips and really not too much distance covered ) We will not buy Asolo again - but they look great

    Best lightweight boots.

    • Size Bought: 9.5

    This is my 2nd pair of Fugitive GTX boots. The 1st pair I bought are showing signs of the heels breaking down. They have been worn everyday for over a year in all kinds of conditions. I've worn several different brands of lightweight boots, but none of them have held up as well as these Asolos. Some brands have failed after only a few months. I highly recommend these boots.

    Well-suited for any terrain

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Great, rugged hiking boot for sand to snow and ice and everything in between. They take a while to break in, and can be kinda ouchy until they do, but you won't find better traction, ankle support and water resistance in a boot at this price point. Held fantastic traction where others needed crampons and performed well hiking paved, dirt and sandy paths as well.

    Versatile Boot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    This is my second pair and they still rock . Quality over The past few years is still solid . For being a hiker these are warm and keep your feet dry. I have worn these around town they look and feel great as well . Good in snow and rain . I added crampons to these and they worked very well climbing the Lion head trial on MT Washington. Under 30 I would switch to a more robust full Mountaineering boot. But these are very light and you can really move in them . These are well worth the price and will last you .

    Still waiting to break them in...

    • Size Bought: 9.5

    I've had these for about a month now, and have taken them on one serious hike, and many walks around town and workouts at the gym. The left boot feels great, but the right one, for some reason, feels pretty tight around the toebox, as if it's more narrow. It feels like my toes are jammed in there, but that doesn't make sense because it still feels roomy at the heel. I've found that the remedy is, counter-intuitively, to lace them up tighter, moving the whole shoe somewhat more forward in relation to my foot, producing a little more room up front and less room at the heel. Since doing this, and making sure they're tight, I've noticed that the smushed-toe feeling seems to go away. The next big test will be the next real hike, especially the downhill sections, as this is when my foot wants to slide forward. Anyway, I'm still hoping this is just the process of breaking in the boots. The left one, as I said, is great.

    Great boots!

    Great boots, been wearing them this fall for hikes around the mountains and on a recent vacation in Ireland(Very wet). Boots have been great with little to no break in time. Feet have been dry, I highly suggest

    Pretty good

    • Size Bought: 12

    Love the stiffer heel on these boots and ankle support. Definitely had some issues with the seem that connects the gore-tex and leather tearing after a short amount of time. The tear occurred where the boot naturally flexes from my foot motion towards the big toe of both feet. Obviously this has a major impact on the water-proofing. I think this is pretty standard with most gore-tex/leather boots i've used in the passed. Maybe i need to go all leather. I wore and hiked in these boots practically everyday for 20 of the 24 months i've used them and am generally pretty rough on my gear. Good for active hiking in all seasons and prior to the gore-tex tear they were great as a light winter boot. Plus, they look pretty cool.

    Really Comfortable Hiking Boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    The problem I had in the past while hiking is that about half way into a long hike my “dogs” would start barking. Although I have owned different hiking boots and hiking shoes over the years the result was always tired and sore feet before the hike was even close to ending. Only the draw of the beauty of the areas we hiked in made it worthwhile to endure this discomfort.

    My hiking experience took a dramatic turn for the better after buying the Asolo Fugitive Gore-Tex Boot. My feet no longer give me the problems they once did prior to buying these boots. Between a combination of these boots and exercising my arches, hiking now has taken me to a new level of fun and enjoyment.

    I feel fortunate that this boot fits my 8 ½ D feet like a glove. There is no unusual slippage and going downhill on steep trails has not caused any discomfort. Equally important that these boots provide tremendous ankle support for my weak ankles and I have not experienced any ankle rolls or lack of stability on scree or other uneven and unstable terrain.

    The only difficulty I have experienced with these boots is that the cuff on the right side of the boot has caused me a hot spot on occasion. But a simple adjustment after I tie my boots eliminates that problem.

    Finally, these boots are holding up well after going on some fairly brutal hikes and I look forward to future hiking trips while wearing these boots. Of all my equipment and clothing they will be the least of my concern.

    Your experience is normal. Different boots for different feet, people cannot generalize your observations to themselves ie that these boots would do for them what they do for you. Rather, they should expect to find a great boot for themselves by using what they've learned and considering the specifics of a boot, trial & error, and luck.

    This boot does have certain qualities, none of which are mentioned here, so take this report with a grain of salt.

    Do it all boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    These boots are great for just about anything. Felt great the first time I put them on, and they've gotten even more comfortable with time. I wear them for work, riding my motorcycle, hiking, etc. and they perform well in every situation. I've splashed boiling hot water on them and it didn't even phase this boot.

    I did end up putting in some green superfeet soles just because I have high arches and was getting some pain from working 15 hour days, but since have had no issues.

    Gotten several compliments on the mandarin color scheme as well.

    Great boot, super comfy, seems like it will last for a good long time.

    My everything boot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    With so many positive reviews on this boot you probably don't need another to make your purchasing decision. I'm gonna write one anyway because I love this boot that much.

    I originally purchased these in the summer 2011 when I was working on the Boulder, CO trail crew. They were comfortable right out of the box, my crew members were amazed that I didn't get any blisters through the first few weeks of breaking them in. Since working trail crew they've seen every condition I could throw at them. They've spent months working in the heat on a Virginia cattle ranch and were still breathable. They've been my everyday winter shoe in the Ice boxes of Fraser Valley, CO and Jackson Hole, WY (paired with decent socks of course, I personally love Dahlgren). They've seen construction sites and miles on the trail and kept me comfortable and dry the whole way through. While they certainly aren't cheap they get the job done and then some at a price point that is hard to beat for comparable boots.

    However, while I adore these boots they are starting to show some wear. The same seam point on both boots is starting to come out on the interior side of the boot where it bends, I can just squeeze a finger through but not through to the inside of the boot, thus the 4 stars (call it 4.5 because I do love these). Honestly this is something I would expect considering the hundreds of tough days the boots have been through. The manufacture warranty is 1 year but when I purchased them at REI I was told a lifetime warranty so I'm still hoping to replace them next time I swing by a store.

    Whether I can replace them or not my next pair of boots will still be Asolo and despite the wear on the seam I still highly recommend these boots. When I say I put them through the wringer I mean it, I have beat these things as hard as I could and after years they still have some life left in them, couldn't ask for anything more out of a boot as this price point.

    Did REI ever allow a swap? I know they are touchy about tread wear. But seams in a boot are a different thing. Will Backcountry honor the same thing? I've seen others note broken seams on the interior of the boots in different reviews.

    You'd think that since it is a common complaint in all the reviews on REI, Amazon and Backcountry, Asolo would have corrected the issue in the newer construction of the boots.

    Big thumbs up to REI's return policy, they sent me a check for the value of the Fugitivies and I used that return towards the Khumbu GV

    The seam construction is different on the Khumbu, I've been using them almost daily all winter and definitely think they're a step up from the Fugitives, hopefully the seams won't be an issue this time around. Again, big thanks to REI on the return, I'm not sure would.

    Asolo Fugitive GTX boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Very rugged boot. Hiked about 30 miles on varied terrain in Big Horn. Sure footing on rocks. Waterproofing worked well in some serious mud after rain.

    Lacing system is a little odd but secure. I am a size 8.5 and felt the boot was a tad large with light hiking sock. Thick hiking sock worked best.

    No problems with break in. Was great right out of the box.

    Good all arounds

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Following up to my earlier review. These boots have broken in nicely. I would reiterate that these are not your average all leather hikers, these have a little more stiffness to them. If you are just walking ur dog thru the local trail, these are overkill. But for mid to heavy loads and a variety of terrain, these are great boots. They are warm, despite no real insulation, and keep your feet dry. Good grip on the soles. I've classified them as 'true to size' but be aware they are somewhat narrow in width. Some ppl have complained about the durability, but no issues here yet. Nice big toe cap gives u protection, and all metal lacing eyelets are better than the cloth ones which always seem to tear eventually. 4 stars because they do require some work to break em in

    Durable Boot

    These boots have handled the thick persistent mud of the adirondacks flawlessly; they kept my feet warm and dry after 20 miles of hiking in the Santanoni Range. The only time my feet have ever gotten wet with these boots was after a 15 mile winter hike where they were covered in snow all day.

    Solid as ever

    A bit narrow but they make that pretty clear. My second pair felt great out of the box. My first pair lasted 5+ years! no reason to think the second pair won't do the same

    Comfortable, quality product

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I'm a hard to please boot & shoe customer. After tying out about every brand of higher end hiking boots I found the Asolo Fugitive to be the best for me, but had to exchange the original size 9 for a 9 1/2. I normally

    wear a 9, but my toes bumped into the front of the boot when hiking downhill. They are very comfortable, reliably waterproof, have decent support for my medium to high arch, and feel acceptably ventilated for Gore-Tex footwear, even here in Florida. I've only used the boots for short hikes, but from the comfort that I have experienced so far I am confident that they will be fine for the multiday backpacking trips for which they were purchased.

    What he said...

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Good boots so far. Took the hiking almost the first weekend I had them (no blisters) and have had them in the pouring rain out in the field (work construction). Break in period was short, buddies had boot envy, and they are a lot more breathable then the leather Asolos I had previously. The boot to sole separation issue is one I'll keep an eye on because it happen to my last Asolos. Kudos to BC for filing me under their old return policy so I could get back to rocking some kick @$$ boots.

    Ok I plan on going to glacier national park and backpacking 21 miles on gunsight pass I just want to know if these boots would be the right boots for the job I want something breathable and not to heavy like they say 1lb in the feet is equal to 5lb in the pack so if anybody here know a thing or two about backpacking I would be very grateful for a suggestion on a pair of boots that are gonna do the job but not be a big ole pair of heavy boots oh and I plan on going next summer thanks so much

    These are fine boots for you application, if they fit you well. But - many great boots are not right for some feet!

    This is the key with any stiff (ish) hiking boot - fit. Ankle fit, room at the toe, sufficient overall width, heel fit, arch support!

    You must buy, try on in your home so you can return them if need be, then break-in boots if you want to be happy on a fancy trip. No way around it. If you don't have time to break-in a solid (these are medium+ solid) boot, buy something soft, or even 2-3 pair, and send the rejects back. Blisters the 1st day can & will wreck your trip.

    Dealing with blisters on the trail is an art you may not know well, and it's always painful and time consuming no matter what. You cannot trust a boot to fit you by looking at it or asking us!

    Are these boots crampon compatible? I'm looking to do some summer snow climbing (no steep ice) that requires moderate use of crampon/ice axe. Thanks

    Do they come in 12 wide!

    Do they come in 12 wide!

    Anybody have experience w/ the wide version...

    Anybody have experience w/ the wide version of these or the Flames? Either of these seem to fit very well for me in size 12 aside from the outside edge of the toebox bumping against the next toe in from the pinky of my left foot when pushing off on it or descending. Would the Wide version primarily add to the fore foot or does it also add a lot of volume to the instep/ankle/heel?

    I'm a little gun shy at this point as I'm now stuck w/ a pair of 11.5 Fugitives that felt fine in the store and in the 2 days I wore them around the house before hitting the trail but became pretty painful in this area when carrying load for more than a mile or so. I paid for a pair of 12 Flames tonight and did around 1.5 miles of laps inside my house w/ a ~30# pack and was noticing a slight interaction of the same problem toe w/ the toebox. Any suggestions for other boots w/ similar fit/function w/ a bit larger toebox?

    Best Answer

    Some brands are just not a good fit for certain feet and maybe Asolo are just not for you. However, if you are just having one issue with one toe on one side you may have trouble with many brands and styles. Have you considered upgraded inserts (like green Superfeet) which can help support your arch and draw the foot back into the heel. Another thought is to try to "punch-out" the toe box a little in that one spot by stretching the boot (with help from a shop, which can also help you with the correct size inserts)

    Thanks for the reply.

    I tried Superfeet green, orange, and black in the 11.5 and 12s of the Fugitive (and Flame) but all of them seemed to feel like they were pushing me to supinate and didn't really seem to be doing much for my toebox issue. Went back to the store last night and wound up walking out w/ a pair of Power Matics paired w/ a set of Sole footbeds which seem more neutral, provide a slightly more cushy feel, and give my sort of high arches a bit more support. Got in about 2 miles on my friend's treadmill in them, and while it's obvious they need a good deal of breaking in, the fit in a 12 seems absolutely spot on and the uppers seem positively buttery considering they're brand new. Gonna hit up the treadmill for at least a few miles a day over the weekend to make sure there are no issues before getting them dirty though.

    Still loving these boots, after many miles...

    Still loving these boots, after many miles I replaced the laces and insoles but the outsoles are just about wasted, does anyone know where I may check into a (Vibram) re-sole?

    UPDATE: I decided to try to resole so I dropped them off at (rhymes with Ari Eye) to see what I would get. After I dropped them I heard that Dave Page in Seattle is THE source for this and I was delighted to see that is exactly the vendor they use! (
    I got them back last night and I am pleased that they used Vibram soles, I am also impressed with the craftsmanship of the repair and it seems to have been done with much care.
    I am curious about their choice of sole as it seems more like a heavy hiking sole (similar to my Koflac winter boots!) whereas the original seemed a little lighter / technical.
    My problem was price, I don't know what Dave charges directly, but I was told by (you know who) "$30-60 ish" and when I picked up they said $85! They did lower it to $60 when I complained that I was not called to approve the additional charges.
    To resole or not to resole?
    Still a tough call. I could have got a brand new pair for $235 (or $180 at!) but they would not be broken in and my old ones would hit the landfill.

    How does the Fugitive Compare to the Salewa...

    How does the Fugitive Compare to the Salewa Alp Trainer?
    After much searching I've narrowed my choice for a next pair of boots to the Alp Trainer and the Fugitive: the way I see it the Fugitive is more solid, better suited for high-elevation hikes and heavier loads. The Alp Trainer seems snugger, better for more technical routes, and for hiking off-trail, or for river trekking. Has anyone had the chance to compare the two in action and point out any pros/cons of either shoe? Thanks!

    Best Answer

    I have never worn the fugitives, but I own the alp trainers and I can say I'd rather have the alp trainers based solely on the fact that they have vibram soles. The treads wear so slowly and the rubber is so durable. Also, the Salewas are mush more warm than I expected, especially with winter socks. As a bonus, I went on a 10 mile hike the second I got them out of the box and no blisters or raw spots on the foot. Go with the Salewas, especially if you aren't planning on carrying 50 pounds of gear everywhere you go.

    Whats gonna b a more sturdy boot this or the flame

    I also have a pair of the Alp Trainers - imho they are in line with the asolo however lack the different types footbeds that Asolo offers to accommodate different foot types. I also noticed that the Asolo has a little more room in the toe box which comes in handy especially if you will be using during colder weather as it gives a little more room for your sock to do its job (insulate).

    I've been wearing these boots for about a...

    I've been wearing these boots for about a week now and I love almost everything about them. I wore them hiking a bit and mostly around the city breaking them in. The only issue I'm having is some uncomfortable rubbing on the right side of my left ankle right where the gusseted tongue meets the rest of the boot. It is a little better than when I first started, but it makes me nervous that it will never go away. Has anyone experienced the same thing and should I expect this to go away at some point? I have a big hike coming up and I don't want to get stuck half way up Mt Whitney and not be able to make it due to ankle pain. My right foot could not feel better, which is good none the less. Thanks for the thoughts!

    How are these shoes for everyday use? I...

    How are these shoes for everyday use? I wanted something more substantial to walk around with everyday. I take my dog out a few times a day and we always wind up going through muddy fields and of course it rains here a lot! I am worried about the weight and how hard they are on your feet. What do you think?

    I have had these boots for about 1 year and have put in probably 100-200 miles of hiking and backpacking with them. I've hiked on all kinds of terrain and had 0 pain problems with these boots and no blisters. They fit great! Most people will bring a pair of camp shoes when the backpack so they can take their boots off around camp at night, I don't need to with these boots becuase they are so comfortable. They are heavy but they support, comfort, and protection is worth the extra weight.

    I literally wear these 8 months out of the year straight-that means every day these get laced up. I live in the mountain town of Boone, NC, and with the wet weather, uneven terrain, and snow randomly...these are a must. I put a different insole in them because of my extremely flat feet, but other than that these are extremely comfortable for daily wear and provide good support and protection. Be sure to open them all the way up at night to avoid odor issues, but you should be good to go with these. Not too heavy for daily wear and are pretty easy to break in...if you could even call it breaking them in...very comfortable boot.

    What waterproofing agent is best? I know the boots have the gor tex lining but above and beyond that any recommendations?

    What waterproofing agent is best? I know...

    I second the Nikwax. You can expect that the Gore Tex won't last all that long. I think I started noticing that my feet would get wet after ~150-200 miles in them. Nikwax is good, but after the Gore Tex tears, you'll never get that kind of waterproofing back into the boot.

    Few Questions: 1) What is the shank on...

    Few Questions:

    1) What is the shank on this shoe made of? Is it a crappy nylon/plastic shank, or metal?
    2) The asolo website makes some fuss about its "duo asoflex" insole "technology". Is there any reason to believe that the insole is not worthless?
    3) to those who live in NYC: I'd like to purchase these for daily stompers in NYC. Is the gore-tex lining going to make them unbearable in NYC heat? Not having to care about nasty puddles of suspicious fluids is a plus, in my opinion, though.

    Best Answer

    The shank is polyurethane. Walking around NYC in steel shanked boots not only is overkill but would likely be unconfortable as the boot won't be able to flex at all with your gait.
    A steel shank is more useful for walking on snow/ice or endless talus.

    I believe the "duo asoflex" thing is talking about the construction between the insole and the rubber outer sole.
    No stock insole is going to be terribly fancy or it wouldn't fit the majority of peoples' feet. If you find it helps you can add a superfoot or similar insole.

    To your last question I never find that you overheat with a non-insulated boot, gore-tex or otherwise, as long as you aren't wearing super heavy socks. The boot will probably insulate you a bit more from really hot pavement than a thin tennis shoe would.

    I would like to add to AC's comments, the basic insole is worthless, it never made it out of the store. Also the heat isn't an issue, I wore these every day during an internship for a construction company. The project was on a sand covered army base where the temperature was 90 daily and humidity was 90%. They did great, the key is wearing wicking socks.

    Over a year later, this still blows my mind. Steel shank boots for casual wear in NYC? If it's important you display an Asolo logo, they make some light hikers and trail runners which would be more appropriate for daily urban use.

    Has anyone worn these in sub-zero temps?...

    Has anyone worn these in sub-zero temps? Like snowshoeing in 10 degrees F? Are they warm enough for everyday wear in a cold winter mountain town where there's ice/snow on the ground for the next 4-5 months?

    I have worn them in sub-freezing, but not sub-zero temperatures. As long as you have a pair of heavy socks and keep moving you should be fine. They are not insulated as Ben said, so you might be better off with a boot with more insulation. Try something like this:

    I did Madison in -10 F and Adams in 3 F(2 separate occasions), lots of windchill both times, and they did fine. I did wear gaiters and do generally have warm feet, so your experience may vary. If you plan on hiking in those temps regularly, get a real pair of insulated mountaineering boots, as my feet do get cold summiting.

    I have pretty wide feet too, and I own these boots. They are super light and break in nice too, I have put them through some pretty harsh territory and so far they have held up better than any other boot I have owned. I have had them for about a year and have worn them everyday, but by looking at them you would be able to tell. Great boot for the money

    I would go into a store and try on a few different pairs and different sizes. Go at the end of the day because your feet will tend to swell during the day if you are walking (or hiking/backpacking). Try to get it out of your head that you have to have a certain pair of boots because every pair will fit differently. This boot may fit your feet horribly and be completely wrong for you, while another boot you would have never considered may fit like a dream. A good salesman won't let you leave the store with a pair of boots that fits you incorrectly.
