Test the Asolo Women's Tacoma GV Hiking Boot on the muddiest trails in the wettest weather. Gore-Tex Extended Comfort gives this boot reliable waterproof, breathable capability for fall-to-spring protection. Asoflex lasting makes sure you can walk freely, while still ensuring the stability you need on rough terrain.

Vibram's Agile sole also ensures flexible mobility as well as the traction you need on slippery surfaces. Asolo built the Tacoma GV's upper out of soft-yet-strong suede for extra water-resistance. Spark's anatomic footbed includes shock-absorbing comfort, heel-raising support, and extra cush. Soft EVA adds more cushy comfort to the midsole.

These Boots Were Made For Hiking...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

... And that's just what they'll do! After my other hiking shoes kicked the bucket mid-multi-day-backpacking-trip, the hunt for a comfortable, durable, supportive, and stylish hiking shoe began.

I tried on at least a dozen pairs, but none fulfilled all of my qualifications... Until I slipped on an Asolo Tacoma GV. Ah, my very own Cinderella moment.

A size 8 was suggested to me, but I felt like I was moving around in 'em, so I opted for a 7 (usually a 7.5). I think sizing down made the break in period a bit tougher than it had to be. I suffered some heel blisters on steeper and longer hikes (hence the four stars), but now they are perfectly molded to my foot. The precise fit of these boots offers a feeling of control, something you don't get with those heavy clunker boots. I have worn these in the Pacific Northwest's rainy season and loved to brag about my warm, dry feet to my hiking buddies. The ankle support is A+ for backpacking and the Vibram sole offers superb traction on a variety of terrain.

Plus, I think it's worth mentioning these are pretty darn cute to boot (hah!) and we all know how hard it is to find attractive hiking shoes. I have the Earth color, which is a versatile shade of grey. I thought this color would get dirty fast, but the suede repels dirt well and they are easy to freshen up with suede cleaner. ProTip: They look get with some scrunched chunky Woolrich socks.

Your review has convinced me... buying them!!

After trying on several boots with mixed results I finally got these on. First off they run large, st least on me. I have low volume, narrow feet and one is 1/2 size smaller. Typically have to get a 1/2 size larger but in this boot I went down a 1/2 size. The boot is cut long so I didn't get any toe jam either which also be a problem. The insole that comes with it is worthless so anticipate getting some super feet. I haven't done any real hiking yet but just walking around they seem to be pretty good with no hotspots so far. I'll report back after a day hike later.
Another thing which I really like which has nothing to do with fit or performance is that they have absolutely no pink on them anywhere. 😊 Every other boot I tried on had some range of the color pink on it. Please, I don't need to wear pink hiking boots to let everyone know I'm a girl. Let's get over the pink crap on women's outdoor gear please.

Amen to that!! Lay off the pink in women’s gear!!! Purple can go far away, too. How about more neutrals??? Like this boot!

I have been looking for a new pair of hiking/backpacking boots for about 5 months. I have tried on approx 30 different types/styles to the point where I thought I had become the "Princess" in the Princess and the Pea. Nothing was good enough! But these are perfect. Here are the highlights: I have fairly narrow feet and I did not feel that I was slopping around in these. They are nice and light and don't give you that waffle stomper feel of most backpacking boots. I could scramble in them without feeling like I had cement shoes. There were no spots that dug into my foot - like at the ankle or the top of my foot. Felt great with the first hike - no need to break in for 30 miles before they are comfortable! Traction is great and works really well over rocky trails. Ankle support is great.

As a caveat, these are my first real hiking boots, but so far I am in love. The first time I wore these was on a 10 mile hike (to 5000 ft. at the peak), which involved some scrambling over boulders and crossing streams - I was surprised and pleased to find that I didn't have a single blister, and my ankles (which usually ache after long walks or a run) had been completely protected and felt great. I've used them several times since, and even find myself making excuses to wear them to the office because I enjoy them so much. I got these shoes based on the great things I've heard about the brand, and so far I have not been disappointed.

Things I like:

- The vibram rubber is very sticky and very sturdy. I even got my feet too close to a fire without realizing it, and while they were too hot to even touch, the rubber was unaffected (whew).

- There are fewer seams on this than most of the hiking boots I tried. I think these will last longer because of this, as there are fewer places for them to come apart. Even then, these are the most sturdily-made shoes I've ever owned.

- They are very light compared to the other boots I tried. It really seems to make a difference on long hikes - I was able to do some trail running in these after 8 miles of hiking in them.

- Easy on and off. For hiking boots, these seem really easy to slip on and off, especially with the connected tongue.
