My last two pairs of boots were the vasque ericksson GTX boot. I wore them for work everyday. I am on my feet all day. These are great boots and super comfortable. I get two years of use out of a pair. My only complaint was that the boot would pull apart where the rubber and leather is glued at the toe box. This would happen at the end of the boots life though.
Asolo boot is very lite weight . Its comfortable, provides a steady platform and laces nicely around the ankle. I have worked in them for a couple months and have hiked in the boot. The boot is comfortable with little break in time needed. The boot sole is very stiff and doesn't have much flex. The sole is stiffer than I would like it to be but it wouldn't make me not buy the boot again. The vasque boot sole was more flexible. Overall, the Asolo 535 is a nice boot and great out of the box.
I don't think this boot has goretex....Does it?
