Asolo Magnum GV hiking boots

Post by Bennyonesix1 »

Got some gift cards for christmas to Backcountry and used it for most of the cost of these. Expensive as hell. But holy jesus these are worth it if you do a lot of hiking in mountains. 10/10

I have some Scarpa Mojitos for forrest and mild trails.

too fucking narrow for me, both brands although the occasional scarpa I find fits.

I hike about once a year, in a pair of skateboarding or running shoes. Usually it’s sketchy and annoying with the shoes I have.

The asolos are approach shoes so buolt for scrambling up to the base of the ascent. The scarpas are a lighter scrambler. Both have a somewhat reinforced toe and pretty soft and sticky soles. You can kinds jam them into cracks etc. They're absurd but comfy. I've done over 10 miles in them no prob.

I have normal feet not splayed out hairy snow shoe hobbit feet like steven and I had no issues.

I find it hard to believe steven wears shoes.
