Asolo Flame

A lightweight 3-season walking boot weighing 1552g (pair, size 11). Synthetic and suede upper; Gore-Tex lining; excellent feel for scrambling and via ferrata. Solid toe box and firm heel cup; excellent stiffness in sole. However, outsole lug pattern is a little shallow for a trudge across a boggy moor.

Verdict: Great for scrambling and rocky mountain walks, but not the best for boggy ground, grass and mud due to shallow lugs on the outsole.
