Asolo Power Matic 200 GV

Picked up new hiking boots for Summer 2011 - a pair Asolo Power Matic 200 GV 's. This is the same boot I had previously owned for the few seasons & have been so happy with them I decided to stick with the same brand & model for my latest purchase.

These are pretty heavy duty backpacking boots & to the minds of my fellow hikers they are overkill for general day to day adventures. I prefer a stout boot though and as my adventures often lead me off trail & into quite a variety of terrain I am always happy to have something solid underfoot. Especially in thick undergrowth, wet conditions & stream crossings or moving through loose scree & shale. Add a pair of gaiters to these babies & you are bomber.

Now to get a pair of red laces to make them official.

I will write up a more extensive review after I have covered some miles in this new pair and compare them to my old pair which I finally had to retire.
