Asolo Alta Via GV Mountaineering Boot


Free Shipping on orders over $50*

A do-it-all alpine boot.

Wear the Asolo Men's Alta Via BV Mountaineering Boot on the approach, on the wall, or with a pair of crampons on ice. These do-it-all boots were built for mixed climbing at high altitudes, and as a result feature an intuitive design that's rigid and responsive but still comfortable enough to wear on long approaches.

Their Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort membrane provides both warmth and waterproof, breathable performance, while their Perwanger leather upper is durable and water-resistant. Flex points at both the front and back of the ankle allow your ankle to move comfortably while you hike, but with Asolo's heel locking technology and injection-molded TPU lateral shell, the boots are extremely supportive when climbing on both rock or ice. The Vibram Vertical rubber sole is crampon compatible and is supported by a Pebax frame as well as an anti-shock PU insert in the midsole. An anatomic footbed ensures a comfortable fit, so you're not dying to pry these boots off after a long day in the alpine.

Rockin' Boot

Just summited Mt. Hood in these bad boys. I was kicking up the ice in Black Diamond Crampons on the way up, and plunge-stepping down the slursh on the way down. These worked fantastically and my feet stayed dry and comfortable the whole day. I wear an 11.5 in the Asolo Fugitives, and the 11.5 in the Alta Via is slightly roomier to account for a thicker sock and kicking crampons. After a 10 hour climb and 5500 vertical feet on volcanic rock/ice/snow, these things still look brand new you can't even tell I wore them. It was hard finding a detailed review on these, but the guys at the shop I went to said that was probably because Asolo has a heavy European market. The shop guys preferred these boots over the La Sportiva Nepals or the Scarpa Mont Blancs. I would get em again. If Asolo fits your foot, grab a pair of these babies.


I picked up a pair of these for the Whites (NH) and have worn them for about 20 miles of up & down mountains so far, and have to agree on the comfort. Even wearing them in the summer and soaking 2 pairs of socks in 6 miles never got uncomfortable. It’ll be time to start wearing them for real soon, I have an NH4K (Mt Moosilauke) planned Dec 22 and will wear these. Time to get crampons soon! Love the pic, BTW.

I hike in Asolo but opted for LaSport Nepal Cubes because I had more feedback about using them in the cold (got them for Mt Shasta in March). a long day, much of it in 15-20 degrees and I was ok in the Cubes but if it got much colder and had I been in the dark longer and I would have been too cold. What were the temps and duration of those temps that you have experienced in these boots, and do you run hot/cold/neutral?

Although I have close to 30 years of hiking, hunting and general outdoor experience, Im fairly new to Mountaineering. I tried a couple of boots to act as a heavy trekking/mountaineering to ad to my kit. After not great luck with some SCARPA boots I decided to look at what Asolo offered. I regularly wear the Asolo Fugitive GTX in the fall through late winter for EDC and love them. These boots are no different. I wear anything from a 10.5-11.5 in shoes and went with an 11 in the Alta Via. They fit perfectly. I have yet to experience any toe bang or odd soreness during break in. Looking forward to wearing them on some PNW routes this year.

After a pair of Scarpa Charmoz (for wide feet, so I was told) ripped a hole in my little toe on each foot on a break in trip on Mt. Si trail (the first few uses only had hot spots and blisters due to a poorly designed location for a material seam). I scuttled those and I got a pair of these. Even with open sores on both feet from the previous weekend these were a pleasant experience to hike from Paradise to Camp Muir with a full pack. On a side note, I probably could have lived with a size 10.5, but I am happy with the 11.

Hello! Are you planning to use the boots on Rainier? I will be climbing it in August, and am trying to decide between the women's version of the Alta Via and the La Sportiva Evo. Do you have any idea how they compare? As this is my first pair of mountaineering boots, any information is helpful!

We are (May 21-22nd), I have hiked them up to Muir a few times along with other training hikes, no issues what so ever. My wife loves her LaSportiva Nepal Evo, but she has not tried the Asolo. During day hikes (even to Muir) these boots are plenty warm. I will be in a wool baselayer t-shirt and shorts and I will still soak them through with sweat (murino stocking sock and Darn Tough summer hiking sock, so these boots will definitely do great in colder temperatures with a wool hiking sock for summit day (I'm from Alaska, so I already run warm as it is).

I just finished a 5 day Mt. Olympus climb. I decided to forego approach shoes and I wore these to save pack weight. I loved it, My feet were warm on hiking days, but with 54 miles round trip, glacier travel, climbing, and lots of trail work these boots performed great. Not a single blister.

What size in the charmoz did you have? I too tried the new charmoz and they are crap imop. I really love my Asolo Fugitive GTX in 11 so I'm wondering if I should go with an 11.5 in these to save on toe bang.

what is the coldest weather you've worn these in and been comfortable? thinking about using them on mt washington in NH

Kendra, I wore mine up Mt Kearsarge North, just outside N Conway, in Feb 2018 and my feet were fairly warm at maybe -5F. There were times they got chilly but I think it was mainly due to moving slowly, my hiking partner hadn’t done anything in about 3 months due to a bad MTB crash so he was a little out of shape.
