Travel light, go far, and be comfortable in the Asolo Fugitive Light Hiking Boots.

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.

Comfortable, quality product

  • Gender: Male
  • 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.

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.

Killer Boots Man...

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

I scooped these suckers up on my way to catch a flight bound for Africa. Needing to pack light on this trip, I brought only these brand new boots and a pair of flip flops. Wore them the whole time straight out of the box and they were great. They look tough and are easy to get on and off, even in the airport security line.

Preliminary impressions

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

I just got these a few days ago, and i will start by saying I haven't put them thru the wringer yet. These are just my initial impressions after having put a few 'break-in' miles on them.

I got these at the recommendation of a friend. I intend to use them for just about everything from deer and bird hunting to hiking to general outdoor use around the house to walking around town.

These boots are definitely stiffer than your typical $120 north face hikers, but are not nearly as stiff as some Lowa or Salewa mountaineering boots I?ve used. I would consider them directly in the middle of a generic hiking boot and a mountaineering boot. I have very average to slightly lower volume/narrower feet, and when i wore these for the first time, they felt a bit narrow. I initially thought I?d waste $230. But after a few break-in miles, they got considerably more comfortable. Initially the arch in the insole was a little much, almost like it needed to be matted down, but after a few walks it seems to have worked itself out. One thing I do like about these boots is the high ankles- they give a ton of support. Another thing, and I know this is nitpicky but I?ve had problems before...all the eyelets are metal, which is great because on the fabric/cloth eyelets, as soon as u scrape one rock it's game over.

Again, the boots have definitely improved in terms of comfort, but I have not given then the hard trail test yet. I hope this initial review is helpful, and I?ll revert back after an upcoming bird hunt. 4 stars until i give it a hard test

Comfy right out of the box

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great backpacking and day hiking boot. My feet never get wet. On my second pair. Perfect fit. Going to have my second pair resoled if it can be done. Note: Last year I upgraded to the Asolo Flame and they run about a half size smaller. Found it out the hard way, lost both big toenails on the downhill hike out. Switching back to the Fugitive.

A great all-around backpacking boot

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

I've gone through lots of hiking/backpacking boots in my life so far. And I've gone to both ends of the spectrum - old, traditional full leather that needs to be broken in like a good baseball mitt all the way to completely synthetic. I've never found something that just fit right, held it's own in all scenarios and withstood the test of time . . . until I got this boot. It fits my foot so perfectly. I can really kick the crap out of this boot and it just keeps coming back for more. I've trounced all over Mt. Washington for three out of four seasons and this thing gave as well as it took. I hope Asolo doesn't make that mistake of taking a great boot and canceling it from the line because this one is a keeper for me.

Do they come in 12 wide!

Favorite boots ever

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

I have had my boots for going on 10 years now. I love them, and you just can't kill them. I have not done any expeditions, but plenty of weekend back pack trips, and day hikes. I love these boots. They go with me no matter the seasons. I am actually having mine resoled, and they should be ready for the next set of adventures. I would say make sure you break them in, other wise they are great. Always keep my feet dry.

Very comfortably, toe bails dryrot

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

Let me first say these are the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. I'm on my second pair after the first developed dry rot in the toe bails after 8 months. I've put just over 100 miles on this new pair, all Appalachian spring/ summer trekking, and THEY ARE DRY ROTTING! This has happened to me with one pair of boots in the dry and cold climate of Montana, and a completely separate pair in the wet/warm climate of western NC. I want to give a good review for the comfort, the lack of break in period, and sharp look of the boot. And maybe BOTH of my experiences are flukes, but I am really sick of getting new boots every 8 months.

I have to agree with the above. I absolutely loved my GTXs for comfort, waterproofing, and traction. However, I had catastrophic failure of both L/R boots due to separation.

I think I was just too hard on my boots hiking w/ moderate (40lb) packs and using them for mixed alpining with crampons. I got about 3 hard seasons out of mine and will buy another pair.

Great lightweight hiking boots!

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

I put 14 miles on them in Washington's Goat Rocks Wilderness right out of the box, they required no break in period. They seem to have the ruggedness and durability of other boots I own that weigh twice as much. I highly recommend these boots for carrying heavy loads on multi-day trips with some to lots of snow travel. I would feel totally comfortable strapping crampons on them for Cascade Mountain summit bids.

I have had these for years

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

I have had these for years! Absolutely love them! One of the most durable boots I have ever had. Their use ranged from hiking in the winter to hiking in southern Utah in the summer. They have a nice stiff sole which I like. They feel like a boot and not like a sneaker. They are super solid.

Solid boot

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

Highly recommend after two plus years. Bought these on the recommendation of a friend who said all the SpecOps guys he flies around the world wear these. Figured, good enough for those guys, good enough for me. They have lived up to the recommendation and I can see way those guys put their trust in these boots. They have handled every bit of terrain I've been on well. Mostly worn on day hikes in Switzerland but they have been subject to rain, snow, mud, etc. No pulls, tears, etc. in the leather and the toe cap looks good as new. Boots may run a little narrow if you have wide feet (I do not). Sizing and color is true to listing. Considering buying a 2nd pair in case these ever wear out.

They made it up "North Star Couloir"...

Made it to the summit of North Arapahoe Peak via North Star Couloir. Then they helped me traverse to South Arapahoe peak via the 4th class ridge traverse, frequently climbing lower fifth class rock. Love these boots!

Made it to the top!

Used these boots to climb "Dead Dog Couloir" on Torrey's Peak (14,275') in Colorado. They worked great even when the slope approached, and maybe even surpasses, 55 degrees in angle forcing me to front point. They also stayed dry when the snow didn't.

BEST BOOTS I'VE EVER WORN. PERIOD.

I wear hiking boots everyday for my job, I'm in light construction so hiking boots work great. I've had boots from many other brands and these are the best. they are light, watertight and the soles stick to rock like whatever else happens to stick to rock... I've had them in ice, snow, wind, rain and alot of mud. they have served me well over 20 of the high peaks in New York and are gonna be on my feet this year when I finish my 46'ers and next year when I start to tackle the Whites. I cannot rave about these boots enough. when and if these things ever die, I will get another pair without a doubt . (ignore the subpar gaitors in the picture, they were on loan as mine were left home)
