  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I initially wrote a review saying I didn't like these because they leaked water. I solved that problem by using (several applications) waterproofing on the cloth gusset along side the tongue. I have put many miles on these boots since then and they are working well. They are tough and well constructed. I have a hard time finding boots that fit my feet and Lowa seems to be a good fit for me if I order a half size larger than my usual and wear wool socks. So I changed from adequate (3 stars) to above average (4 stars) based on longevity and comfort. And I removed my uncomplimentary picture of them soaking wet.

That's strange because I've never had this problem with them. I've done several all day hikes in rainy wet conditions and this never happened. You should return them definately, but you might have gotten a bad pair.

I had the same experience. In my case one boot leaked at the toe box from the start. Returned them, no problem. The boot is so comfortable I might order another pair. I am also thinking of the Asolo 535 which is non gortex. My gortex lined Asolo 520 eventually leaked so I am still wondering which way to go.
