The Asolo Falcon GV hiking boot is primarily a boot for summer hiking, and it’s got pretty much everything you could ask for in such a model – from the breathability to the comfort, resilience and the light weight.
These boots were comfortable right from the first moment we put them on and tackled a two-night backpacking trip with a peak scramble without causing our lead tester any foot pain or blisters.
Very comfy, very light, very capable and very hard to fault.
Aside from some negatives, the boots look to be very well made and I can see them becoming a favourite for summer dog walks, forest trails and hills. It’s great to have boots of high quality that are lightweight and super comfortable.
Comfortable, tough, and relatively light, which is a rare trifecta in the hiking boot world.
The Asolo Falcon GV are half-high and light hiking boots for not too technical walks with a not too big and heavy backpack. Think of the Alps in the low and middle mountains.
- Using a 1.6 - 1.8 mm suede and Cordura upper, Asolo made the Falcon GV ideal for hiking and summer walking. It has a Gore-Tex laminate to bring breathability and waterproofing. A cushioned tongue and collar, rubber toe cap and heel pull tab complement the upper.
- Asolo, together with Vibram, developed the Redster outsole with the Megagrip compound. This sole has aggressive lugs that render traction on trails.
- The Falcon GV from Asolo has dual-density EVA midsole for comfort and cushioning. A lasting board and anatomic footbed give stability and support.
The Redster outsole employs the Megagrip compound. This proprietary technology offers grip, adapts on most types of surfaces and grants durability. Its self-cleaning lugs prevent muck build-up and bite into ground surfaces.
This day hiking boot from Asolo uses a dual-density EVA midsole. The high-density foam delivers a stable ride. On the other hand, the low-density EVA at the heel area maximizes cushioning and dissipates shock from impacts.
Rendering additional protection underfoot is the Asoflex 00 SR lasting board. A Lite 2 plus anatomic footbed promotes comfort.
The Asolo Falcon GV uses 1.6 - 1.8 mm suede leather and Cordura. This combination grants a durable and lightweight upper. The non-insulated Gore-Tex Extended Comfort laminate lines the inside of this day hiking boot. It’s a waterproofing component that also creates a breathable environment in the shoe.
Its mid-cut design features a padded tongue and collar for comfort. A rubber toe cap helps protect the foot from accidental bumps and the pull tab on the heel assists in easy on and off.
