    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 hiking boots!

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

    This is my second pair of these boots and my daughter has them also. I wore out my first pair after hiking everywhere-Colorado, California,Canada and Australia. I generally wear a 6 1/2 or 38, but the 6 fits great. They are a little wider in the toe area which allows for the smaller size.

    Great hiking boots!

    Reliable boots, on my 2nd pair!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9

    I first bought a pair of Asolo Stynger women's boots about 9 years ago and I wore them out in the Catskills, Northeast, Kentucky, West Virginia, Washington state, and Colorado. I find these boots are good for backpacking- sturdy but not too heavy/overbuilt. They're somewhat waterproof and somewhat breathable. (I don't expect perfect waterproofing and breathability to go together!) I treated these boots with Nikwax products and cleaned them with Nikwax products regularly and got a good 8 years of wear out of them. I got a 2nd pair in May 2016, because over time my feet have gotten a little longer and my toes started bumping against the ends of the boots (my first pair was a size 8, started feeling too short even though there seemed to be some life left in these boots.)

    The soles are grippy enough for scrambling on rocks and getting good traction.

    I use Superfeet insoles with these boots for the best fit - I like how the custom insoles cup my heels and prevent slippage.

    I have slightly narrow feet. Regularly I wear about 8 or 8.5 women's shoe size in "civilian" fashion shoes. I ordered my newest pair in a size 9 and they worked great on a recent backpacking trip in the Cascades. I got them wet and they dried out on the trail pretty well. The photos I'm sharing are of my old boots after nearly 10 years of regular use.

    The toes needed some Shoe Goo repair work, but otherwise I'd keep using them except that my feet got longer with time/age!

    Reliable boots, on my 2nd pair!

    Great for the backcountry

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 8

    Wore these boots on a 7 day trip in the backcountry / hiking all day / summited a mountain. They held up great. Very comfortable and did not require much breaking in. I normally wear a 7.5 but in this shoe I wore an 8. I have wider feet in the front but a narrow heel and the Asolo was one of the few pairs of boots that worked for me.

    Love them!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I got these for my girlfriend and they are great boots. We are both extremely picky about all of our gear, especially our footwear. She says these fit extremely comfortably and although we have only had them a short time, we have put them through ice, snow, mud and slush and they have performed wonderfully.

    Great boot so far!

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

    • Size Bought: 7.5

    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.

    • Fit: True to size

    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.

            I normally wear a women's 7, but took them back and xchngd for a 6.5.
            One caveat though..if you need/want room for a super think sock--order your usual size.
            Hope this helps. Better late than never??!

            Best Answer

            Just came back from the Grand Canyon and wore my Styngers. Down South Kaibab, night at the bottom, and up Bright Angel. Granted it is summer and sweltering... but the rubber has started to separate from the sole of the boot. Don't know if this is due to the heat or a manufacturing defect. I am going to try and return these boots as they only have about 27 miles of real hiking on them to include Kauai's Awaawapuhi Trail. The good news is no blisters.

            I also do quite a bit of desert hiking/backpacking. As long as it's not above 100-105 you should be fine with the rubber not separating. Unfortunately, the rubber that the sole is made for isn't the best, and it wears very rapidly.

            Otherwise, the boot itself is definitely not too hot to wear in hot/humid or hot/dry conditions. In fact, I would recommend it because I'd rate the stability-to-weight and stability-to-warmth ratios are quite high.
