User Review: Asolo AFX 530
Use: Day hikes and backpacking
Break-in Period: 1 or 2 day hikes
Price Paid: $125
I had a pair of these boots for about a year and a half and loved them. Unfortunately, they began to come apart. The seam that holds the top piece of leather (where the shoelace eyelets are) to the rest of the boot came apart.
Not being a heavy backpacker (one or two times in the last year) I was pretty disappointed. So, I sent them back to Asolo with a letter describing this, and they just sent me a new pair of Gore-Tex 520s. So, I will soon be posting a review of the 520s
