True, but calked boots aren't real useful in the desert and they're a tad overkill for the golf course.

I went to Whole Earth today and looked at the Asolo 520's.... They were expensive - $230 a pair. After the Lowa fiasco at $215 and lasting only 6 months, I am leary. I saw some very nice looking Montrail boots for $160 which looked even nicer to me. "Torre" I think they were called. Going to research a bit on those.

Asolo's are very well made.
