In 1975, Asolo was an industry leader for their innovations in the trekking boot field. Around 10 years later they received the “Golden Compass” award for more innovations in the alpinist shoe field. It comes as no surprise that, 15 years later, Asolo is still producing quality goods that set the industry standard worldwide. The Asolo Men’s TPS 520 GV Boot is no exception.
Whether you are a seasoned professional or brand new to hiking, the Asolo Men’s TPS 520 GV Boot has something for everyone. Do you aspire to hike the tallest mountains and the longest trails? Do you plan on carrying a pack loaded with provisions for days at a time? Or do you simply enjoy getting out of the city for a breath of fresh air. The Asolo Men’s TPS 520 GV Boot has you covered. It is comfortable, durable, and it looks great.
Your Feet Will Thank You!
The quality of these hiking boots is apparent before you even try them on. A full-grain leather upper sets the standard for men’s hiking boots. The seam-sealed, Gore-Tex® lining makes sure that you stay warm and dry even in the soggiest of conditions.
Asolo has improved upon their award winning soles by adding Vibram® rubber outsoles to provide the most dependable traction on any terrain. The gusseted tongues and padded ankle collars are sure to provide serious protection from rocks, sticks, leaves, bugs, and any other unwanted debris.
While the ankle collar does it’s job like a champ, it has a rear notch so it doesn’t put any unwanted pressure on your Achilles during long descents. To complement these high quality features, Asolo had integrated an Asoflex® support system to provide stability and protect against bruising from rocks and uneven terrain.
Triple Power Structure midsoles tie this pair of the best hiking boots together beautifully. The midsoles are made of high-density polyurethane and low-density polyurethane cylinders. This creates a combination that is a shock absorbing duo that leaves your feet comfortable and safe while you’re on the trail.
In the field of men’s hiking boots (and women’s hiking boots for that matter) the Asolo Men’s TPS 520 GV boot is hard to beat. One of the biggest advantages to this shoe is the price. There are many shoes that are more expensive on the market, but it would be tough to find a more quality, feature packed boot among them.
The Asoflex® support system provides stability that will support you even under a heavy pack load, which makes it ideal for serious hikers that need that kind of support and stability.
All of that support and stability comes at a price. Unfortunately, the TPS 520 GV is a little heavy for some hikers. Weighing in at 3 lbs. 13 oz., these boots are not the lightest option on the market.
In short, the Asolo Men’s TPS 520 GV stays true to Asolo’s long tradition of being a quality footwear company. For serious hikers and weekend warriors alike, this men’s hiking boot will not disappoint.
