    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 weigh 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 feet 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.

    • Burly hiking boots built for backpacking long distances
    • Gore-Tex Performance comfort is waterproofing and breathable
    • Duo Asoflex midsole designed specifically for women
    • Special rubber/PU compound sole built for tough trails
    • Item #ASO0010

    Seems great but hurt a bit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have only used these boots a few times, but so far they have shown to be very durable and have great traction, and keep my feet comfy and dry. I've worn them hiking through small streams on the trail as well as through a hailstorm and that was great.

    They did bite into my heel pretty bad on one side. I wear nice wool socks when hiking and generally avoid blisters very well. It may have a weird seam in my particular pair, so this may not be everyone's experience!

    Otherwise, these boots fit well and true to size, with a mid to narrow foot.

    Least Favorite Boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought these trying to upgrade my hiking boots but disliked them from the start. Should have trusted my gut and returned them immediately. Too narrow toe box for my average foot but the worst was the heel slip that left me limping with blisters along trails, regardless of how I tied them (including the 'heel lock'). Thought maybe I just needed to break them in more but now it's 2 years later and these are door stops to me - I will never put my foot in them again.

    Asolo no more...

    I have had several pairs of the Asolo Styngers and it's time for me to look for another boot. These Gore-Tex boots are not even rain resistant. On my first hike in my new pair, it rained a little. My boots and feet were completely soaked. I always bought them for the good sole that was long lasting. However, I have found that the quality has steadily diminished over the years. I agree with another reviewer about the soles quickly separated as well. Any recommendations for a narrow, waterproof hiking boot for women?

    Asolo no more...

    The same thing happened to my boots! I bought them in 2010 and put many hard miles on them, so in my case it was normal wear and tear. I contacted Asolo about it and this was the response:
    "To address the "crumbling" of your previous boots, most likely the polyurethane midsoles dry rotted. Sole Units will degrade when your footwear is used only occasionally and is stored for long periods of time. Sole units degrade faster than if the footwear is worn regularly. Hydrolysis is a normal material aging process that occurs in all footwear with a cushioned PU midsole independent of the manufacturer. The process also occurs in automobile tires, ski boots or helmets and does not represent lower quality or even a quality issue in materials or workmanship. We expect our midsoles to last 4-5 years with normal care and maintenance, and typically if worn regularly the treads will wear out before the midsoles dry rot."

    The Stynger GTX boots are no longer in production, so I wonder if the boots you received were made years ago and left in a warehouse to dry rot? I was actually searching for the same model to replace the old ones but I don't want to spend $240 on boots made 8 years ago. If you aren't totally turned off of Asolo as a brand, I have been considering the Shiraz GV ML as a replacement. If you find some awesome boots to replace the Styngers, please post!

    Love these boots

    • Fit: Runs large

    I have had my first pair of Asolo Stynger boots for 10 years and they're still going strong . These boots have been all over the world with me. I recently purchased a second pair for an upcoming trip to Nepal. I never get blisters with these boots. I wear them for everything from light day hikes to long mountaineering approach days with heavy pack full of climbing gear. They are super comfortable, durable, waterproof, good ankle support. I normally wear a size 8, but the 71/2 fits me better in these boots. Don't hesitate to buy this boot. You won't regret it.

    Soles Separated In Less Than 100 Miles

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

    I loved the fit of my Stynger boots. They were the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. However, the sole on the RH boot began separating within 100 miles and less than 2 years, which is the warranty on these boots. I contacted Asolo USA and they blamed the separation first on under use, then on over use, then on improper storage, then on dry rot. When I explained to them both boots are stored the same way and have the same amount of use, so the LH should be separating as well, they compared the boots to automobile tires. By far the worst customer service I've ever received and I am extremely disappointed they are not honoring their warranty for the pair of defective boots they manufactured. What good is a comfortable pair of hiking boots if you can't even get 100 miles or two years out of them? I will NEVER buy another Asolo product again. And just to be clear, this isn't a review against Backcountry (who has always treated me AWESOME), this is a negative review against Asolo, their defective product and their terrible customer service at Asolo USA. Buyer beware - these boots were the suckiest suck that ever sucked.

    Soles Separated In Less Than 100 Miles

    Therese, i was looking for a god boot for my daughter. I have had excellent results from my Asolo TPS 520 GV Evo for many years. I'm disappointed to here this. what is your favorite hiking boot? My daughter is pretty hard on her foot ware. chet3ccs@gmail.com

    Therese, I had older 520's with this same issue but in the back of sole. They said if I could find receipt they would have honored a resole repair but gave me the same ridiculous excuses. If you google this issue, it's happened to so many people. Very disappointing and I have no idea what to buy now since Asolo fits me the best.

    After my first hike in them...

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

    I read a lot of reviews about these boots prior to buying them and after my first wear they haven't disappointed. I did approx. 7.5 miles with some good elevation to test the boots out. One blister (but I also tried new socks with them so I think it was me breaking in everything at once). I don't typically like stiff boots or over ankle but these were really comfortable and didn't feel too heavy or bulky. So far so good...but I still have a couple of hundred break in miles before Kili!

    Great hiking boots!

    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!

    Great Item !

    Item as described and fast shipping.
    I could not be sure of the shoe number because I did not wear this brand before.I got the idea with Chat.It helped me decide.And the moment of happiness.
    Thank you

    Reliable boots, on my 2nd pair!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    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!

    gosh... a previous comment had me wondering about reliability, i hope your experience with these boots is the norm:

    Great for the backcountry

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 8
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    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!

    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!

    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.

    My new best friend

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Write your question here...Stynger or Attiva? I'm a warm weather hiker...Canyonlands, Grand Canyon, California, Hawaii, that sort of thing. I don't want a warm boot. Any thoughts out there?

    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.
