User Review: Asolo Yukon
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $150 or $200
These boots will need to be put in your will and may need another owner after that.
- Last forever
- You'll never need a new pair of boots again
I'm a geologist and used these boots from North Dakota flat land, the Bear Teeth mountains and in rattlesnake filled canyons south of Lake Havasu, Arizona, and the boots never flinched once. All aforementioned sites I used these boots to hike off trail and dig enormous craters with a shovel.
Most well made boots lasted one season and were completely destroyed both uppers and soles. It's been 25 years and these Asolo Yukons are still in excellent shape. I've had them resoled some many times I really don't know if it's 3 or 5 soles that have been walked off of them.
They may have had a tough break-in period but I was 24 years old when they were new and didn't notice blisters or sore feet. When I wear them now they fit perfectly.
Now that I'm older the insoles are kind of hard and unforgiving to my well used metacarpals. Thus I've given in to using the softer insole version of Asolo boots which will not last a lifetime or two like the Yukons.
If you're tough, these boots are what you need.
