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.
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.Read more ›
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.
