These are GREAT boots. Over the years I have tried a number of boots that try to combine light weight with good support and stability -- these are by far the best.
I've had my pair for four years, hiking with moderate packs, logging lots of miles in the southern Arizona deserts and the Adirondacks high peaks. They show very little wear and have saved my ankles more times than I care to count. It's hard for me to believe that anyone who bought a pair that fit had ANY difficulty breaking these in -- they require NONE. For the heavy, REALLY rough stuff, I have my Montrail Moraines, but for anything else, the Asolos are all the boot you'll need. Buy 'em and stop worrying about your feet.
