Winner of Backpacker magazine’s “Best Backpacking Boot” award, Asolo’s FSN 70 hiking boots feature a Gore-Tex® waterproof breathable membrane that keeps feet dry and comfortable. As with the men’s Asolo FSN 95 hiking boots, these are a top quality pair of boots for the trail.
A waterproof breathable Gore-Tex membrane ensures any external moisture like rain or water is kept out while at the same time sweat and moisture inside the boot can wick away from your feet. In short, they keep your feet in tip-top condition when hiking.
The gusseted tongue keeps water and debris out of your boot while the protective toe rand provides added protection to your feet from hazards on the trail. The rubber Asobrake traction outsole keeps a firm grip on the trail whatever the terrain, going up or down.
These boots look good and cover all the technical bases needed to ensure a good hiking boot. At 2 lb. 11 oz. these boots are of a good weight and so will suit the day hiker or the intrepid backpacker.
Many customers report hitting the ground running with these boots with minimal breaking in time. These hiking boots have 700+ customer reviews with an overall average score of 4.5 out 5 stars! That is a fantastic rating across a large amount of folks! This obviously reflects the quality of this boot.
With all the features above, specs listed below backed up by so many positive reviews, this boot is a winner!
