This is my second pair of Euro-made hikers & second pair of Asolos. They feel like a pair of 10-hike boots straight out of the box. Great fit, true to size, quality materials, gore-tex lining & world class vibram soles are the best money can buy. My dad had a pair of welt-sole, vibram leather chukkas he purchased in the late 1950's. He hunted in the lava fields on the Big Island of Hawaii with them for years.. He (& I) repaired the leather a few times but the soles have remained in tact & practically unworn to this day. I expect the soles on these to wear true as well. Lug pattern on these Asolo's throw mud & snow to keep traction like a mud tire on a 4x4.
Note - my first pair had a construction issue with one of the lower eyelets after 3 or 4 months of normal wear (metal pulled away from fabric); Sierra TP replaced them no questions asked! Quality issue didn't discourage me from exchanging them for the same boot.
I would recommend replacing the insole with set that has more shock absorption & comfort but overall a great boot value!
