Pat Guinnwrote a review of Asolo TPS 520 GV Evo Hiking Boot - Men's on August 29, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
These boots are the best of both worlds - built for the long haul but also fit well right out of the box. The break-in period required for these boot was minimal and relatively painless. On long hikes, the boots provide exceptional stability and protection while maintaining breathability. More specifically, the boot is on the stiff side with strong ankle and heel support. Potentially the only downside of the boots are their weight. They are slightly heavy for day hiking, but the protection factor makes up for the heavy weight on longer hikes.
