Whether you want to trek through the high hills and mountains or through long winding rivers, these shoes will not let you down.
The Triple Power Structure used in the Asolo TPS 520 GV hiking boots is one of various similar technologies developed by Asolo. This triple structure employs the use of here different layers of soles to provide excellent support, traction and shock resistance. These three soles are placed in specific location where the foot is most vulnerable to shocks and impacts. The innermost high density PU layer combines with the second low density layer to absorb the shock received by the shoe and bar it from reaching the foot. The outer sole utilizes another technology that Asolo developed, known as the Vibram sole. This sole provides the required amount of traction and helps the shoe get a firm grip on slippery and rocky surfaces. If you turn the shoe over, you can distinctly see the three different colored soles at the bottom. The external, and initial, shock absorption is done by the cylinder in the heel. The second inner cylinder helps the stability while the last one located in the front part aids the movement of the toe in lifting the feet.
These shoes have an upper part that is made of full grain leather that provides breathing space for the feet and at the same time, it is waterproof and flexible. This flexibility allows freedom of movement while climbing or walking uphill. Another hiking shoe technology employed in the Asolo TPS 520 GV backpacking boot is the Gore-Tex lining inside the shoe. This lining ensures protection from water and is breathable thus keeping the feet dry. Asoflex supports, yet another Asolo development, helps stability and protection from impacts.
The Asolo TPS 520 has received many reviews and almost all of them have placed it on a high standard for hikers and backpackers. Keep in mind that the shoe is meant for the serious trekkers and the casual walking fan will find it too warm and hard to break.
