Good to know

  • The Megaton Mid GV from Asolo melds comfort and support in its suede leather and polyester enclosure. It has a waterproof and breathable liner courtesy of Gore-Tex, called Extended Comfort.
  • Delivering comfort, protection, and surefootedness on the trail is the Asolo Synthesis sole unit. It consists of a mono-density EVA midsole and Vibram’s adequately lugged outsole. These two subcomponents unified give the boot a toe rocker—a feature that improves walking comfort, especially during toe offs. 

A fairly true-to-size, mid-cut light hiking gear for men and women is the Asolo Megaton Mid GV. It is made for those with regular-width feet. It is offered in a range of sizes, both half and whole. Its lace-up closure provides a simple approach to achieving a personalized lockdown. Its plush in-shoe fit is courtesy of the boot’s padded collar and tongue.

Asolo engineers, in collaboration with Vibram, gave the Megaton Mid GV an exclusive kind of outsole—the Synthesis. Its entire build is based on Vibram’s Megagrip compound, allowing it to produce the right amount of traction on surfaces whether wet or dry. Its aggressively shaped lugs, aside from having the ability to bite into most types of terrain, self-clean with every step. 

Besides steady balance, the Megaton Mid GV provides a cushioned and shock-protected ride with its sturdy midsole made of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). Its single-density construction has waterproof properties, as well as stress resistance and toughness. Resting on top of this stabilizing foam is the Lite 2 Plus footbed for extra underfoot comfort. 

The over-the-ankle upper of the Asolo Megaton Mid GV is a combination of water-resistant suede leather and polyester. Its Gore-Tex Extended Comfort liner bars intrusive wet elements and exhausts heat and moisture simultaneously. On the back of its heel is a synthetic pull tab for on-and-off convenience. Its forefoot end, on the other hand, is engineered with a protective toe cap made of rubber. Rounding up all things upper is the light hiker’s classic lacing system which features synthetic laces, leather lace loops, and metallic open hooks.
