6 pairs later I'm still buying them - I have owned 6 pairs of TPS 520 GTX boots and am now looking for my 7th. I bought my first pair in Feb. 1994 and they have been my "daily drivers" almost exclusively every single day since, save for sneakers for sports and shoes for dress. I can count on one hand how many times I've taken them on any trail, they are day to day footwear for me. They are the most comfortable boots (or any piece of footwear for that matter) that I have ever owned. No "break in" time has ever been required. I take pretty terrible care of them, I've never treated them with anything and they have always stayed 100% waterproof thanks to the GoreTex lining. I get about 2 years out of them and I look for a replacement pair (which I'm doing now). The single weak point is the soles have worn through before the rest of the boot wears out, however I wear them every day and spend a lot of time on my feet on all sorts of manmade surfaces, I'll bet a trail would wear them slower. I wouldn't call it premature wear at all, I wouldn't buy 6 pairs if I wasn't happy. Buy this boot, you won't be dissapointed.

I'd also recommend: None

I chose a 1/2 size larger than my dress shoe size to allow for hiking socks and it is a perfect fit. Has enough room for toes to wiggle around. I have not had any heel rubbing or hot spots, but have only used them on several shorter hikes. My only concern is that there is no rubber cap to protect the toe, I'm sure the leather will be damaged before too long. I am quite happy with them. I searched for a brand made in the USA without any luck, but at least these are not made in China.

LOVE THESE BOOTS! I have very hard to fit feet: wide in the toe box, normal heel and custom orthodics take up a lot of volume. So, I needed to buy the men's 81/2 wide. I usually wear a lady’s 9 or 9 1/2 wide. From the first day I had them, they were the most comfortable ever. Furthermore, I need a very stiff, supportive boot since I carry a lot of weight, even on day hikes, and have very week ankles. After hundreds of miles, I cannot even count how many times these boots have saved me from a bad sprain. I have worn them in snow and very rough trails and the traction and support is just awesome. The waterproofing works, and after full days tramping on snowy trails or through streams, I am as dry and warm as could be. On hot days, they are no hotter than any other boot I have worn. I hope that Asolo never discontinues them so that, in a few years, when these wear out, I can get another pair. (I resole my boots at least three times before they go to recycling.) I saw another customer complain that they were stiff. To me, that is what I love about these boots. If you are looking for a "light hiker" these are NOT it. They are massive and heavy and supportive and make me feel like I could hike anyplace with any sized load on my back.

Awesome Boots! I bought these boots for my backpacking trip this past summer. I tried to wear them to break them in before the trip but it was hot out and the last thing I wanted to wear was boots. My trip came up fast and I had only worn the boots a handful of times and mainly only to the office where I sit all day. I Hiked the High Divide loop in the Olympic Mountains (very steep mts. lots of up & down). The boots were awesome!!!! I did not get a single blister from my virgin boots. They were very sturdy and sound. They helped me keep my footing on very steep trails. I am still baffled by the fact that these boots didn't hurt at all while hiking 40+ miles in three days with a 35lb pack on my back. Recommend these to anyone!

This is my second pair. I wore my first pair out after 3 years of hard wear nearly every day! This is often the only shoe I have that supports my foot with plantar fasciitis. Worth the money for happy feet.
