Welcome to the Futura.
Not many boots are capable of summer backpacking and winter day-hikes, but the Asolo Futura GTX Women's Hiking Boot isn't your run of the mill kick. It's made of soft, water-resistant suede and highly rugged Cordura nylon, so it's naturally supple and resistant to abrasion, but it has been lined with a Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane for uncompromising waterproofing, along with killer breathability. The upshot is that your feet will hardly ever get wet, so you can splash through puddles, stomp through mud, and tramp across fresh snow without freezing your lil' piggies half to death.
A boot that's going to support you through rugged, wet, and cold terrain also needs to have a serious amount of support, and the Futura delivers in spades, starting with the Duo Asoflex Lady last, which is shaped to prevent your ankle from rolling in either direction for a steady stride and reliable landing. The Lite 2 anatomic footbed supports your arch and the ball of your foot, while the EVA midsole provides all-terrain cushioning and the molded heel insert prevents your heel from sliding and slipping inside the boot. Asolo finished the Futura off with a rubber cap to prevent stubbed toes and its grippy and tough Asolo Sensor rubber and EVA sole provides killer traction on dry ground, wet trails, and snowy terrain.

I'm an Asolo user now and forever; so comfortable and sturdy. I've experienced the 'boots fall apart while walking Cradle Mountain' thing and NEVER AGAIN! I'm sticking with Asolo
