|After 4 years I just replaced these boots with the same thing. I put hundreds of trail miles on them as well as used them for my winter city boots! Comfortable until the end, durable like I never would have guessed (original laces to the end) and they look good too...|
Whether getting through tourist during a blizzard in Times Square, Avoiding Bears in Yosemite or just section hiking the AT this boot will get it done!!!
Fit is a little wider then the Vasque Breeze.
Takes 20-30 miles to break in
Waterproof but you may want to treat the leather sections each year to help breath-ability.
|Vasque Breeze is similar but runs a little more narrow.|
|This review is for the Wide version of the Fugitive.|
The toe box (and heal) are voluminous... which works well for me in the toe box. I had to add lifts to the heal to consume some of the space and prevent slippage.
|Update from previous note. Traction on slippery footing seems suspect|
So far nothing I can really make note of... I am a very tough fit so I recognize I have to make concessions in my footwear.
|Little break-in, flexible sole, good support, solid toebox|
|Fabric/leather combined upper does not provide as much protection for the gore-tex membrane; after some wear they will let water through if there is snow on top or if walking in the stream|
|Asolo all-leather boots (though less breathable and require more break-in) will stay waterproof longer.|
|Fantastic construction, not to heavy. Toe cap allows for year round wear|
|Tread wears down faster than other boots I have owned. Break in time is a little long.|
|For the money, these boots are great! They will last and have great lasting ability|
|I love these boots. So comfortable. High tops for great support, Gore-ex. Overall just amazing boots. The laces are even super beefy!|
|My feet sweat a lot. These boots are breatheable and surprisingly water resistant. They are stiff but not overly so.|
|Insoles are a must for my feet. water resistant but not water proof by any means.|
|Soft rubber grips in rough terrain, super comfortable, stays warm, stays dry|
|Expensive, laces destoyed on first trip|
|Waterproof, warm, comfortable|
|shoe strings arent durable, not meant for snow|
|Asolo one piece leather boots|

|comfortable, long lasting support over different terrain,|
|half size to big will eat a hole into your heels|
|Relatively cheap, worth the price for a hiking boot.|
|Tread wears and loses traction, lots of seams. Wear over time causes these to come open one seam or another.|
|very comfortable, excellent traction|
|very comfortable. keeps your feet dry. Durable.|
