User reviews:

  • To provide protection and comfort on the trails, the Lagazuoi GV has a one-piece leather upper with Gore-Tex lining. Asolo also designed it with a 360-degree rubber rand and combination eyelets.
  • It uses the Anti-Shock technology which treats the midsole and outsole as a unit. A high-density PU heel element is attached on the bi-density midsole for optimal shock absorption. These are placed on top of the Asolo/Vibram Ascent outsole which stabilizes, brakes and grips.

This mid-cut backpacking boot from Asolo caters to men and women. It generally runs true to size and is offered in standard width and lengths. There's a wide option for men as well. Its lace-up closure grants a snug fit and secure foot lockdown.
