Bottom line

The Lagazuoi GV from Asolo proved itself as a boot ready for backpacking adventures. Its immediate comfort was admired, and it was able to protect and provide a secure foothold even on difficult trails. However, there are still features that need improvement. One of that is its breathability which failed to appease. Taking everything into account, the Asolo Lagazuoi GV is a backpacking boot still worth giving a shot, especially since it was able to deliver a satisfactory performance on the trails.
