I also have a pair of Osolo's ... 


Just have to chime in here so folks are searching/looking up the right thing.  The name of the boot maker is Asolo

 At least it is not a Herachi?....... :eusa_eh:

Do you mean 'huarache' ?

 Yes, it was intended for Al's way of saying Huarache (inside joke) :icon_smile:
Stay thirsty, my friends.

Those are the same as my first pair of Asolos. Zero break in time, one blister that I can remember. They lasted 6 months working and playing in Big Bend - pretty good for me.
