    I’ve owned a lot of hiking boots in my time and I’ve done a huge amount of walking but I have never worn a boot that is this comfortable ‘out of the box’.

Updates to Asolo Greenwood GV

  • The Asolo Greenwood GV, which is the 2018 update of the Tribe GV, is intended for all-season hiking. Just like its older sibling, it has a one-piece 2.4 mm Perwanger leather upper that works with a Gore-Tex liner for protecting the foot against wet elements. 
  • From its predecessor’s Radiant sole, the boot now features a Duo Radiant sole unit. The one responsible for cushioning is the double density EVA midsole. The other component is an outcome of the brand's collaboration with Vibram. It is designed with the outsole manufacturer’s Megagrip compound for durability and wet-surface and slippery ground traction. 

Asolo Greenwood GV size and fit

The Asolo Greenwood GV is a high-cut hiker for men and women. Generally runs true to size, it comes in a range of regular lengths for men and women. The classic front lace-up grants the user a personalized fit. It is offered in D - standard for men and B - standard for women.

Outsole

The traction of Asolo’s Greenwood GV comes from the Duo Radiant Outsole. The aggressive cleats found in the heel area aids the wearer during descents. The inside lateral section features bold designs that control pronation and enhance support. It is designed with channels that shed water and other unwanted elements that lead to slipping. The outsole also extends upward in the front for forefoot protection. 

Midsole

The Duo Radiant midsole of the Greenwood GV has two components. The bottom one is a soft layer that absorbs shock. It also stretches from the rear to the forefoot to grant comfort. The top layer is denser so that it can provide stability to the user. 

Another set of midsole components are the Asoflex 00 MR lasting board and the Lite 2 footbed. They work together in promoting a proper gait cycle. 

Upper

The 2.4 mm Perwanger leather upper is a water-resistant component that works with the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort liner for water protection. The waterproof-slash-breathable membrane can manage both cold and warm conditions.

There is a toe cap that serves as the defense of the Gore-Tex boot from abrasions and shield of the foot from accidental impacts from the front. The lace-up closure includes metallic hardware comprising D-rings, eyelets and hooks. Easy on and off is possible with the heel tab at the back.
