    Asolo Sasslong Boots

    I'm in the market for an early season boot / non-insulated. Anybody have any experience with the Asolo Sasslong boot, good, bad or otherwise ?

    Thanks, Chuck

    I wear Asolo TPS 520 GV so the post caught my eye. I don't know that boot and was unable to find it on Asolo's site. Do you already wear Asolo? What do you know about the boot?

    The only thing I know about the boot is what I've read through the reviews. Sierra Trading Post has a smoking deal going on right now.

    Asolo has treated me well. I don't follow trails and they have given my foot support no matter what direction I'm going. When side stepping up the mountain I have had great stability and don't even feel the least bit of instability in the boot. Like I said, I have a different boot but really like it. I think it depends on the terrain you are on if the boot will work.

    Sorry, no experience with this particular model. However, I've been wearing Asolo boots for years and really like them. I've heard you have to have the right kind of foot to like the feel of these boots. Not sure what type that is? Just remember a guy at REI saying only certain people with certain feet type like these boots. I have bony, big feet with really high arches. They've worked great for me for years.

    I have a pair of the Sasslong, going on my second season with them. Last year they were great, great stability, no hot spots and one of the best pairs of boots I've put on my feet.....BUT

    This year is a different story, I have made multiple scouting trips and they don't feel like the same boot! I am now getting hot spots, and at the end of an 8-10 mile hike the bottom of my feet are really hurting. I'm going to give them another chance on my last scouting trip before season with some new inserts and if they don't feel better, they're going in the trash!

    Not sure what's going on but like I said from last year to this year they don't feel like the same boot.

    I have a pair I bought last year and I really like them for regular hiking, for hunting I use a little taller boot, I just ordered a second pair from sierra trading for $130 using a discount deal that I will wear for work, as the other pair are getting pretty beat up. Been packing with them with 55 pound and they do well.

    I am on pair 4 of the Sasslong. Price is unbeatable. I burn through about pair every other year, and have a pair of Hanwag Atlas which are a comparable boot. Besides a little better stitching, last and rand on the Hanwag, I really like the Asolo's. Not the most durable uninsulated gore-tex boot on the market, but you will pay literally twice as much, and sometimes more for a boot in the same category. Make sure you know your foot a little bit, as the regular width Asolo is pretty narrow. STP offers a wide option usually. Order a quality insole as well, the liner style footbeds that come with Asolo boots are trash.
