Durable, go-anywhere boots for the apocalypse!

These are the second pair of Asolos I've owned, and I love them! Previously my other ones lasted over 10 years with intermittent heavy use on multi day backpacking trips and frequent day hikes. I'm hoping these will be just as bulletproof, and i have a feeling they will be. I wanted a warerproof boot for heavy duty snowshoeing to remote areas in the backcountry with a heavy pack, so the stiffness of the sole and supportive ankle are wonderful. The aggressive tread bites into mud, loose rock, and other surfaces like a magnet! They arent as "cushy" as some of the more recreational casual snow boots, but these are awesome performance boots! I took them out in deep snow the other day, about 15 degrees with heavy wool socks and my feet stayed toasty and bone dry. When i recieved the boots, i was initially worried that the mesh fabric areas on the upper part would not be properly waterproofed which is common for that material, but the water and snow beaded right off! I am very impressed and happy with them. They look cool on, as well. I would say the sizing appears to run somewhat generously, as i had more room than usual in the toe area. They are also a tad wider than standard width, in my estimation. Get these; you wont be sorry!
