I've been using a pair of FSN95s for about 5 years for day hiking and backpacking trips up to 9 days. I got the Sasslongs for the latter application.

The Sasslong one-piece leather uppers are taller than on my FSN95s and offer more ankle support. They also provide a little more rock protection ... Read More

    The Sasslongs come highly recommended from many folks already but I would like to join their ranks in saying that this boot is great. I have owned the same pair of Sasslongs for 4 years and recently looked at getting a new pair of Asolo Power Matics but couldn't bring myself to do it because the Sasslongs are still in such great shape.
    The soles are still well adhered to the boot and although worn have plenty of tread on them. The leather, aside from a couple minor scuff marks, I'm sure will outlast the sole of the boot. The most wear and tear this boot has is a minor bit of adhesion loss at the seams of the rubber that wraps around the boot. I even still have the same pair of laces that it came with!
    Now, how do I use the boot? Maybe they just sit in my closet and wait for the occasional day hike? No, they are used with purpose. This boot has been my go to, my old faithful, my rock for just about every activity that I have done over the last four years. Every day use from trips to the grocery store, walking the dog, long drives, even airplane rides (they're comfy) to day hikes, overnights, hunting trips, winter hiking, winter hiking with crampons and carrying HEAVY loads. I've lead the way up steep slopes in the Chugach kicking holes in the snow for footing and hand holds as others boots were too soft. Strapped crampons on and made my way up icy rocky and windblown slopes. Put on a backpack and gone cross country for nights under the sky. Hiked across moraine, through swamps, woods, mud, creeks, snow, slush, carried Caribou meat and packed out a 104 pound raft for 1.5 miles with these boots on my feet. After 4 years if I want to go somewhere, they're the first pair of footwear I look too.
    So why not that 5th star? I bought these boots right alongside another pair of Asolo boots, I believe it was the Fugitive GTX or similar. I hardly use those. However, right out of the box the other boot was significantly more comfortable and I wore them more frequently for about the first month, probably due to the wide toe box as opposed to the narrow I got in the Sasslong. It became apparent pretty quickly that comfort had it's downsides, the other boot was softer and didn't offer as much support so I began the quest to break in the Sasslongs. It didn't take long, once I decided to swap to Superfeet insoles, I consider this a must and also part of the reason they don't get the 5th star. It did take a little time getting used to the narrow toe box, no fault of the boots, maybe I should've gotten a wide, but ever since they have been great. When I do get another pair I will get the wide toe box to more comfortably accommodate a medium thickness wool sock. As of now the minimum temperature I will wear these boots is 10 degrees (not really what they're designed for) while constantly moving, which is still awesome!
    Thus concludes my Ode to the Sasslongs with a final word, if you want a boot to USE get these boots. If you want a boot to use, you should shop for something else.

    This boot is iron tough, Completely waterproof, Great foot bed - I have very expensive custom orthoditics and don't need them in these boots - Hardwere and material is all first rate.. The stability laced in to the Sasslong is very firm - no ankle sprangs here- Would cosider these boots up to the task for heavy backpacking and even more. The fit is spot on, And I purchased a 2nd pair just yo put up for replacement if the first ones ever wear out. Love this boot!

    These were bought to do erosion mitigation after the Waldo Canyon fire so the time is spent working on unstable terrain some of which is very steep. Spending time in the burn area my footing has been good, they are comfortable and have spent up to seven hours a day working in them. Did one hike of about 5 miles just to use them and all was well.

    Haven't tested them in water so no opinion on that, the laces stay secure once tied, hopefully they can last until the mitigation process is done. At this point no complaints.

    Asked by Madstrad from Colorado on 8/6/2013 9:49:01 PM
    • They are not considered a design that can be resoled. Boot made by the brand Alico have a welt design and can be resoled. Items #61270 and 64724 are two of such styles.

    Asked by Robert from CA on 8/5/2013 11:13:32 AM
    • You would need a wide, but 25.5 long foot is not a size 11 US. It is closer so a size h8 or 8.5. An 11 is 27.9cm long. you may want to print our printable men's Brannock Device.
