Boots

Postby blacktail slayer » Sun Dec 20, 2009 11:48 pm

I’m thinking about getting a pair of Asolo boots and was wondering what pair anyone would suggest getting out of these. I have a wide foot and wear a 13 in all my Danner’s and Rockey’s. Are the Asolo’s wide and would I still get a size 13? Thanks for the help.

Here are the three boots I am looking at:

Lowa Banff Pro (Wide Width) $280


Asolo Sasslong (Original Price $250) Sale Price $170


Kenetrek Hardscrabble Hiker (Original Price $305) Sale Price $295


I have read hundreds of reviews on the internet and all 3 boots seem great. The price of the Asolo's looks even better. What would you all do?
Here are 3 more pairs of boots that I need to go and read all the reviews on. Does anyone have any experince with these boots?

I use the Meindl Perfekt boots. Mine are 9 years old. I've resoled them once. I wear them everyday, and scout, hunt, hike the Rockies at least 300 days a year. The construction of the boot is still perfect, and expect to get another 9 years out of them. Best boots i've worn, and the only ones i've seen recommended by a Podiatrist. The first day I bought them I went on a 7 mile hike, and they were completely comfortable. They're still 100% waterproof too.
