Re: ok, now boots
I bought my Asolo AFX 520 on 12/21/95 and wore it on a 2.5 day
backpacking trip in Arkansas on 12/22/95. No problems at all. Did not
need any breaking in period, although I have never had any problems with
shoes. I had about 15 river/creek crossings on that trip, most of which
were less than ankle deep, but wide enough. Not a shred of leakage.
However, for 2 REAL WIDE and 12" deep river crossings I did it with the
shoes on (foolish act) and next morning they were frozen solid. I like
it, very comfortable.
I think the regular price is $120, I got it on a 10% off sale
here in New Orleans. Also, I think the recent REI catalog had it on sale
for $99. I would recommend the shoe, but please make sure a boot fits before
you buy it.
