Asolo Flame GTX

boot.jpgAsolo Flame GTX – A lightweight hiking boot that delivers.

The aim of the Asolo Flame GTX hiking books was to create a piece of footwear that meet all the needs of the outdoor enthusiast. No matter the conditions, altitudes, terrain, or activity, the Asolo Flame was built to perform well in all of them. Needless to say, I think Asolo met their goal.

Protection and comfort are two things there is no shortage of on the Asolo Flame. The lightweight EVA midsoles on the Asolo Flame provide the wearer with day long comfort and great shock absorption. Allowing you to tackle those last few switchbacks with ease. The patented MicroPulley lacing system also works well to help secure your fit while reducing the amount of abrasion to the laces.

The Asoflex thermoplastic supports on the Asolo Flame help give outstanding stability, control, and protection. The durable rubber out soles found on the Asolo Flame include a feature called Aso-brake technology. This technology allows for superb downhill grip and grip on uneven terrain.
