Go further with the Asolo Stynger GTX Backpacking Boots.

Lace up the Asolo Stynger GTX Women's Backpacking Boots when you're covering long distances on the trail but don't want the weight or bulk of beefy boots. These sporty boots weight only 2lb 7oz (size 6.5), but pack in the heavy-duty features that make big hikes more comfortable. A Gore-Tex lining keeps your dogs nice and dry when you hit the trail after last night's rainstorm, and the Asolo Syncro sole provides excellent traction on muddy hillsides and slick rocks. The Stynger's lacing system locks your heel in place to eliminate lift and allows precision footwork on rough, steep trails that feel impossible in a big pair of waffle stompers.

Great boot so far!

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'4"

    Size Purchased: 8

I used previous reviews when purchasing these boots. I usually wear a size 8 so I ordered that size and they fit great. It took a couple of times wearing them to really feel good, and I bought the blue super feet insoles to replace the stock insoles. I haven't tested them on any difficult trails but so far so good.


Perfect Fit

I've had these boots for two seasons of hiking now, they have been awesome. I actually purchased them in a store so I tried on multiple pairs of boots & these were the most comfortable on my feet. I almost did not get them because of price as it was more then I wanted to spend on hiking boots, but they are well worth the $. I've done 8 hour hikes in them and have not had any issues with blisters.

Are these available in 10.5 or 11?

This was produced in the larger sizes but it doesn't look like we were able to get it in stock from the manufacturer in those sizes. Hopefully we will in the future as it becomes available.

What is sizing like? I vary between a 9.5 and a 10 in shoes and notice that I fit between a 41 and 42 in Euro sizing.

Best Answer

I have the mens version of this boot and feel the 9.5 fits me perfect. I am in between 9-10's depending on brand so I would say these fit exactly true to size. Remember you can always try 2 or 3 pairs and we will cover the shipping back as long as they are new.

Will these boots retain there ability to keep your feet dry? Are they really waterproof?

With gore tex, these boots will stay watertight for a long time. No hiking boot is truly waterproof, but these will be fairly watertight.

I bought my first pair of hiking boots online and you can guess that the fit was not ideal. It took a 3300 ft descend and two aching toes for me to realize I needed a new pair of well-fitted hiking boots. So I went to EMS and tried a few. The Asolo Stynger fits the profile, it has the ankle support I need (I've injured them before), it's on the average to narrow side ( I have narrow feet) and it's sturdy enough to cover long distances. It's also waterproof so I can wear them in winter hikes too.

The 'shoe guru' at EMS told me these take 50-100 miles to break in, I went on two trips about 11 miles each. My heels and toes feel perfect, although I found a small blister on one toe after the second trip. But they feel really comfortable for a sturdy synthetic pair of boots!

A friend of mine also has a pair of Asolo and we both have a little bit of chafing at the ankle bone of the left foot, but not at all of the right foot! I tied the top buckle first the second last to relive the ankle bones a little bit. It helps.

And finally, I just love the red/orange color!! Everyone complimented me on the color for sure.

Love these boots

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs large

I adore these boots. I wear a 6-6.5 and bought a 6.5. They are a little big in the toe and after some research on various ways to lace hiking boots, the heel stays snug. I wear them every day without problems... no aches or pains, no blisters, no numb spots. I've worn them comfortably in Afghanistan, as well as on hikes in the Blue Ridge. So, so glad I had good counsel when shopping and went for the Asolos! They were ready to wear right out of the box.


Great investment!

    After researching brands and reviews and partly because the sole of my boyfriend's Asolos cracked after over 10 years of ownership, I went with this brand. Opting for the 1/2 size up helped tremendously. I shall repeat the comments of another individual who described them as "...feeling as though my feet are saftely locked inside a vault." is a description I also found to be accurate. I've been using them during trail maintenance weekends over the last 2 months or so with hiking socks and have had no issues. Biggest plus is that my toes do not feel jammed even when I carried a 40lb pack for a few miles in and out of the work site.


    I absolutely LOVE these boots!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I was very sceptical about how a boot so stiff could be comfortable, being the first hiking boot I've ever purchased, but WOW, they are sooo amazing, I wore them on our whole 4 day camping trip, cause i just didnt want to take them off! I am going to purchase a 2nd pair, just to have two!


    Great boots

      I love these It took some breaking in (a little longer than some of the other reviewers) and a little creative lacing, but now they're great.

      I typically wear a size 7 in running shoes, but a 6.5 works perfect with these. I swapped out the insoles and that made things a bit more comfortable. At first I was getting some slipping on the heel , but I looked online for different ways to tie the laces and that has made a huge difference. (

      I love 'em now.


      Ready to hike out of the box

        This is my 3 rd pair of Asolo Styngers. I bought my first pair 7-8 years ago and- just as advertised- I was ready to hike in them "out of the box". I had a problem with the Gortex waterproof-ability, so Asolo replaced them free. The second pair fit just as well. I went for my third pair and the sizing is a little different; My foot is a true size 6.5 wide, but I will often go to a 7-7.5 shoe. I have a narrow heel and wide forefoot. The last pair of Styngers I had was a size 7 (which is either 38/39 Euro). I tried 2 pairs which were listed as 39. These were huge. I went back to the 38 (listed as a size 6.5) which were perfect. I would guess that with a normal width foot you should go 1/2 to 1 size smaller. I was able to do a 6-peak, 16.5 mile hike in them after only wearing them a few times prior for short periods as "break-in".
        Incidentally, sent me all 3 pairs with free shipping and returns due to the fit issues.



          I bought these boots on the recommendations of other reviews. I went with my regular size 8.5, but when I added my usual gel inserts found the boots too snug in the toe box. Also I could not stop my toes from hitting the front of the boot no matter how tight I tied the boots, even without the inserts.

          I could have returned them for a size 9, but did not think that would solve my problem with not being able to tighten them enough.

          Too bad as I loved the look of the boots.

          Is it possible to get these boots...

          Is it possible to get these boots resoled?

          Yeah, there're plenty of independent companies that'll do it for you, or you can contact Asolo directly.

          I had my Asolo PowerMatic 500's re-soled at:

          Dave Page, Cobbler (Seattle, WA)

          (800) 252-1229

          As I understand it, this is the only place recommended by Asolo in the US.

          They did a fantastic job!

          Awesome pic! Thanks for sharing. I guess the Asolo Stynger is a good tactical boot too!
