We will be under taking some gear reviews for the good folk at Outdoor World Direct, the first is a review is Asolo’s Flame GTX boots. They are described by Asolo as ” One-piece water-resistant 1,8 mm suede leather upper. Gore-Tex® lining, waterproof and breathable. Midsole in eva mono density. Asolo® highly technical sole with the application of Matrix technology, the balance of the outsole has self-cleaning lugs designed for optimum performance on varying types of terrain. Classic lacing system. Toe rubber cap”.
I was introduced to the delights of Italian boots in the late 70’s, when I was persuaded to splash out on a pair of Asolo boots and since then have had great respect and appreciation for them. So being asked to do a review of these is going to be so much fun. My initial impression is total walking comfort.
These are going to get a thorough testing as I prepare for the Snow Leopard Award expedition later this year. Where we will be wearing Asolo expedition boots.
