I brought these boots a couple of years ago and they have seen very light usage. Since these were my first good pair of hikers I always took a wet towel to wipe them down and applied silicon from time to time. They have been stored inside the original box on the bottom of a dry closet. After my return from a recent trip in Massachusetts I noticed that the entire rubber sole section has separated in both the front and back.
It seems as if the material (rubber?) has disintegrated. I am going to send these boots back to Asolo within the next couple of days. Considering the fact that I’ve only wore them on a dozen light hikes, and only two rough ones (in New Mexico) I think they should be replaced with hopefully a better model. This seems to be a design flaw as I’ve read other posts about this problem. Don’t buy them!
