Product Highlights

Ideal for day hikes or extended backpacking trips, the Asolo Fugitive GTX backpacking boot offers support and protection on varied types of terrain. Leather construction and a full GORE-TEX bootie provide reliable waterproof/breathable performance while high tenacity nylon offers a comfortable fit with an easy break-in period.

Weighing roughly 3 pounds per pair, the Fugitive GTX is suitable for day hikes or longer trips with a pack weight of up to 30 pounds. The top of the boot is stiff yet pliable enough to snug the Fugitive GTX tight around your ankle. A rubber toe rand helps to defend against stubbed toes and extends the life of the boot.

Under foot you'll find a Duo Asoflex men's lasting board to protect the bottom of your foot from the impact of roots and rocks as well as a Polyurethane midsole to help cushion your foot on long hikes. The outsole of the Fugitive GTX is an exclusive Asolo Syncro bi-density rubber which features an Asobrake heel design for better traction on steep descents. A speed lacing system at the ankle of the Fugitive GTX allows for quick lacing and fit adjustments. Durable, metal hardware is a cut above what you'll find on many competitors' boots.

Sold in pairs, the Asolo Fugitive GTX backpacking boot is available in men's full and half sizes. To keep the leather on this boot in good shape and to prevent water absorption in the upper for the life of the boot, you should apply a fabric and leather conditioner and waterproofing treatment (both sold separately).

Styles available: Size 10.0 Wool/Black, Size 10.5 Wide Wool/Black, Size 10.5 Wool/Black, Size 11.0 Wide Wool/Black, Size 11.0 Wool/Black, Size 11.5 Wide Wool/Black, Size 11.5 Wool/Black, Size 12.0 Wide Wool/Black, Size 12.0 Wool/Black, Size 9.0 Wool/Black, Size 9.5 Wool/Black

    Likes: Great boot so far! Lots of support at the ankles, Water Proof, and looks sweet. Backcountry Edge has great prices as well! Would def recommend shopping here.

    Dislikes: There is nothing really to knock on these boots. They have some weight, but that is probably because they are bomber.

    Likes: great boots, lightweight, seem durable and like they will stand up to most everything that i throw at them. i cant wait to take them out more

    Dislikes: after the first wear the flex point of the boot seems to be off (not around the ankle like it should be) but i think this can be fixed by forcing it to flex properly

    Likes: I purchased these boots for longer hiking in and around the White Mountains, in NH. These boots provide incredible ankle support, and fit pretty true to size. The boots are strong when you pick them up they have a high quality feel, while remaining light to cut down on fatigue. So far these boots are great overall, and I would highly recomend them.

    Dislikes: I have no major complaints about these boots. Just so people know, there is a break-in period for these boots. I think most people expect this when buying boots of this caliber. It is hard too guage how long the break-in period is, as footwear is far from universal. To be honest I broke mine in by walking my dogs on some nearby trails. I did this a few times a week over a couple of weeks, now they fit like a glove. I cannot provide any information on extensive wear and tear as of yet.
