Asolo Power Matic 200 GV Gore-Tex Hiking Boots
Although a pricey option, these Asolo boots are widely reputed to be worth every penny. The Power Matic in the name refers to the boot's insanely advanced midsole which contains triple-density polyurethane in specific areas to provide maximal support and stability while absorbing shock from trail rocks and uneven ground. Try walking over a riverbed of rocks and loose debris in your sneakers and then doing the same thing in these boots, the difference is insane.
These boots prevent ankles from rolling and glide over uneven surfaces like they were perfectly flat and paved. Gore-Tex liners in the boots provide full waterproof protection and Vibram outsoles tackle the toughest terrain. There’s killer midsole technology and full-grain leather uppers which make these boots pretty heavy (close to four pounds depending on shoe size).
