Our View – Asolo Falcon GV Men:
The Asolo Falcon GV is a really lightweight (490g UK Size 8) fast and flexible walking boot that doesn’t compromise on comfort or protection. With a great fit and excellent features that provide waterproofing and excellent traction on mixed terrain the Asolo Falcon is a great spring, summer hiking boot.
The Suede upper is water-resistant and is reinforced with Cordura for additional protection, support, comfort and performance. Together with the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort Footwear lining this guarantees waterproofness and breathability in any weather.
Thanks to the Asolo Falcon’s lasting board (sole unit) that is slightly more flexible and lighter compared to many hiking boots we have found that the boot allows your foot to flex more naturally as you walk. This enhances dexterity and increases your ‘feel’ for the ground.
Outsole with the Asolo Falcon features a sole unit designed in collaboration with Vibram to produce the Duo Radiant outsole which utilises Vibram’s MegaGrip Compound for exceptional grip in both wet and dry conditions. The outsole design is such that traction is confident wherever you place your foot and mud sheds quickly and efficiently, so you’ll never be without grip.
The Asolo Falcon GV is going to appeal to hikers looking for a very lightweight boot that provides exceptional comfort and protection for mixed terrain adventures.
