Ideal for longer day hikes or extended backpacking trips, the Asolo Flame GTX hiking boot offers support and protection on varied terrain.
Ideal for longer day hikes or extended backpacking trips, the Asolo Flame GTX backpacking boot offers support and protection on varied terrain. Leather construction and a full GORE-TEX bootie provide reliable waterproof/breathable performance while high tenacity nylon offers a comfortable fit with an easier break-in period.
Weighing roughly 3 pounds per pair, the Flame GTX is designed to carry medium pack loads of up to 30 pounds. The top of the boot is stiff, yet pliable enough to snug the Flame GTX tight around your ankle for excellent ankle support. A rubber toe rand helps to defend against stubbed toes and extends the life of the boot.
Under foot you'll find Asolo's Duo Asoflex 400 Gold lasting board to protect the bottom of your foot from the impact of roots and rocks and an EVA midsole to help cushion your foot on high mileage days. The outsole of the Flame GTX is an exclusive Asolo design using Matrix Technology. This moderately aggressive, dual-density outsole uses Asolo's Aso-brake heel design for maximum downhill grip and offers superior grip on uneven terrains. To further the Flame GTX's ability to cushion your feet, Asolo's Active Heel Support design uses lightweight materials to help heel control and offer better shock absorption.
A speed lacing system at the ankle of the Flame GTX allows for quick lacing and fit adjustments and the durable, metal hardware is a cut above what you'll find on many competitors' boots.
Sold in pairs, the Asolo Flame 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 as needed (both sold separately).
