I am on my second pair in the last 8 months. The problem is that the right boot on both pairs seems to develop a lump or something at the hinge point on the sole at your toes. The first pair it took about six months to develop.
I returned this to the vendor I purchased them from and 10-14 days later received a new pair from Asolo. The second pair I just picked up and unfortunately I can feel the same thing occurring after only hours of wearing around the house.
I initially loved the original pair and figured it must be just a defect. But when you get the second pair and the same issue. I will probably return these and give them one more chance.
The strange thing is that last weekend we did a ten mile hike and I wore my 5 year old run of the mill hiking boots and they felt great. I was starting to wonder if something was wrong with my foot. You can't feel it with your hand but when you put your foot in it you can feel it.
