How comfortable are the Asosl Power Matic...
How comfortable are the Asosl Power Matic 250 V and how much breakin time involved?
I had a pair of these boots a couple of years ago. I found that they were immensely comfortable after a long (4 months of regular use) break-in period. Ultimately, they were too heavy for me and I started hiking in lighter shoes or boots, but if you're looking for a traditional heavy boot these will certainly get comfy over time.
As Mark said, these are very comfortable boots...once you spend the time to break them in. The boot that I've been wearing lately is the Zamberlan Steep. More money up front, but every bit as rugged as the Powermatic, and break-in was nonexistent. I took them out of the box, added my own foot beds, put them on over heavy wool socks, walked 6 miles across mixed terrain without a second thought, except to wonder why I hadn't gotten a pair sooner. Not too heavy, plenty of room in the toe box, stiff enough shank for heavy packing and spring/summer mountaineering, breathed very well, good grip on the soles, excellent ankle support, held out water completely in wet grass and through a few shallow creeks, no complaints at all. So far, one of the best boots I've worn in the last 35 years.
