Thank you for your feedback.
I'm happy with this new model and recommend it to my fellow hikers.
Boots fit well and were comfortable out of the box.
I spend a lot of time in rugged, rocky terrain and my boots held up like a champ for 14 years.

    My Asolos had less than 200 miles on them when both soles separated from the shoes 2 weeks ago when we did the Gillespie Pass circuit in NZ. This was my newer pair which I brought with me versus the older pair which I had resoled (and had not separated just old and worn). We were very lucky we got over the pass when this happened. We made it from Siberia Hut to the river where we were able to helicopter out. I would have had to wear my Merrill barefoot running shoes (which I used for fording the Makarora River) to go the last 15K or so.

    If this had happened as we were climbing the pass it would have been a life threatening situation as this trail is not like your typical WA state groomed path.

    Today I got over to the flagship REI store where they refunded me no questions asked - disturbing aspect was when the REI person told me they have seen many Asolos come back with the same problem.

    I just bought a pair of these boots after looking around, reading reviews and then trying on five different brands. Here's what I discovered: as you might imagine, different companies create their shoes using different "lasts" or generic foot shapes. These differ quite a bit, which is somewhat surprising. So, I strongly recommend that you try on many different boots before you buy. For example, I've always bought Vasque boots in the past, because they fit my narrow (B-width) foot pretty well. This time, I tried on some Vasque boots, Montrails, Merrills, Lowas and Asolos. The Asolos fit my foot incredibly well right out of the box. They were/are the most comfortable boot I've ever owned. They are also, evidently, very durable. A friend who used to be a backpacking guide and now works in an outdoor outfitting store told me that she had other friends who had had this particular boot re-soled three times from heavy use and were continuing to use and enjoy them. So, the essence of my review is this: stick with boot companies that have a reputation for high quality, try on several brands of boots and different models of the same brand (I tried on some Cordura and nylon Asolos, too, but wanted a full-leather upper so I got the 520s) to see which brand's foot last mirrors your own foot shape best, and then spend a little more than you had planned to get a boot that will ultimately last longer and save you money, as a result.

    I bought these expensive (for me) boots with high expectations, as in they might last me a lifetime (as I don't do that much hiking).

    Unfortunately after about five years, I took them for a spin on pavement and BOTH SOLES IMMEDIATELY DELAMINATED, meaning the heel filler turned to sand. It was a sad trek home with the boot soles loosely flapping against my heels. Fortunately for me this didn't happen on a mountain!

    Please note I have taken great care of these boots, always letting them dry naturally in my room and always storing them once dry in the closet.

    While I wholeheartedly agree with the five-star reviewers regarding fit and comfort, I don't expect *anyhting* I buy for $300 to turn into an unfixable throw-away item by itself after little use.

    Of course if you are a heavy user likely to wear out these boots before the 5-year heal expiry date :-) then these boots might be perfect for you.

    Still, as there are many, many other customers with exactly the same complaint about soles delaminating, it would seem there is either a manufacturing problem going on due to low quality raw materials OR the five year heel expiry is a part of a sales-pumping business strategy.

    The reason I suspect the latter has to do with why I bout these expensive boots in the first place: Because on my previous hiking boots, a pair of nice Boreal Malis... the heels delaminated as the filler turned to dust!!! Same story to a "T" as with these Asolos, so I decided to move up along the price-point ladder and purchase what seemed to me to be a fancier, better quality item. So much for my strategy...

    Disclaimer: Although I haven't bought my Asolos from Amazon, I feel my caveat emptor feedback might be of use to other potential buyers.

    I am replacing my old Vasque Sundowner boots that I have used for at least my last 4 pairs. The first thing I notice about these ASOLO's is they are more comfortable than my Vasque's. I have owned these ASOLO 520's for about 6 months now and use them as general purpose boots just like the Vasque. Both are great boots, I believe these are even better. Better durability wise and more comfortable. I also like the traction. The Vasque seem to be better in terms of waterproof qualities. Even when the Vasque are worn out they are waterproof... The ASOLO's are good for waterproof qualities, the Vasque are excellent. I now insist on goretex in my boots.

    Comfortable and waterproof, but came apart after 8 years of light use - and I mean light use.

    Most years they were only worn once or twice to walk the dog in the snow. They probably saw less than 150 miles of actual trail.

    Last week the soles totally disintegrated during a backpacking trip in Vermont. Both of the soles started to come off within about 300 steps of each other, which leads me to believe they just couldn't handle the muddy terrain after 8 years of basically sitting in a closet. We had to end our trip early. A mile hike to the nearest road, and even though we attempted to tie the soles on with all the rope we had, by the end of it the boots were trashed.

    If the damage was noticed soon enough and we weren't so deep in the woods, we could have stopped before they were damaged beyond repair. However, that isn't always an option when you still need to walk after the damage is noticed.

    If these boots weren't $300, I would say I got my money's worth. But for 300 bucks... boots should last longer than 200 miles or so.
