‘Super solid, seriously supportive boot from the outdoor footwear hot-house of northern Italy with top-notch components and impressive build quality’
Outdoors Magic: Solid, supportive and beautifully made, pulley-type lace hooks, all leather uppers, Vibram sole, deceptively comfortable.
Outdoors Tragic: Slightly heavy, stiffness won’t suit all.
Outdoors Grabbit? The Power Matic 200 GV is a beautifully made, stiff-soled, high mountain backpacking boot. The solid construction is reflected in the slightly weighty feel, but the boot manages to be deceptively comfortable with a medium volume fit. Small touches like the easy-running pulley-type lace hooks really do make a difference, artful ankle cuff design improves comfort and mobility and there’s good grip from the Vibram outsole. Not everyone wants stiff soled boots, but if you want a lot of support and these fit, they work very well indeed on mountain terrain. OTT for lower paths though.
Full keather hill and mountain walking boot / 2.8mm full-grain leather uppers / rubber toe-bumper / Asolo Vibram triple-density PU sole construction / Micro Pulley lacing system / Gore-Tex waterproof lining
