I have two pair of Asolos-an old pair of full leather boots-mid 80's vintage and a newer pair-FS 95s. My old pair worked well in all conditions and I can recall only falling once with them crossing a river, but that I don't blame on the boots, just the terrain.
My new ones haven't gotten the same use, but seem fine to me.
I would be curious to know which model boot you have.
Also, where did you get them? If it was REI, they will take them back, no questions asked.
Don't get me started, you know how I get.
