    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Rated1out of5byfromSole will disintegrate past 3 years!!!Best fitting/Feeling boot I've ever worn. But... Sole will disintegrate past 3 years!!! This is the 2nd time this has happened to me and it was the last! Get your act together ASOLO! There are boots out there that have lasted 10 years without this problem! Will NEVER buy this company's products again. Do an Google search on the issue....amazing how many times this has happened.

    Rated1out of5byfromThe Fit is PoorI wear a 10.5 D USA shoe/ boot and my feet are an easy fit. Purchased them and found the boot very uncomfortable. Even with a reasonable indoor break-in period, the were short and tight. My other 10.5 D hiking boots purchased at REI fit just fine. I would recommend that you purchase at the REI store and not online unless you don't mind possibly returning them once or twice.

    Rated5out of5byfromI live in my bootsI am a guide in the Alaskan back country and live in these boots everyday. I have owned two pairs so far and will look to put a thousand miles on the next pair after my dividend this spring. The boots are a bit narrow and you need to allow a lot of time to break them in, do not buy them for an adventure the week before you go. Every good boot will need an adequate breakin time if you skip on this you will suffer. Also, some of the reviews say that the boots didn't feel good to start with, no they will not feel like a slipper the first time you put them on but like any shoe if it doesn't feel right when you try it on it doesn't matter how much you want it to feel good later it probably will never be the right boot for your foot. Down side is that the tread can tend to be a bit slippery on wet rock. These boots are my fall back for the past 7 years and I will continue to buy them every few years because they are the right boot for my profession.

    Rated5out of5byfromKilimanjaro-ProofUsed these boots to the summit of Kilimanjaro and they were a life saver. I had to deal with the usual headaches and stomach problems on the mountain, but never once had to deal with blisters or hurting feet/ankles. Waterproof material held up for those times walking in streams, rain and snow. Ankle support was great. Purchased these two months prior to trip departure and did roughly 30 practice hikes in them with not a single blister the entire time. As others mentioned, there is almost no break-in period. I also used some pretty thick socks, so that could have contributed to the success. Feet stayed warm with only one pair of socks in zero degree weather. The only drawback is the laces seem a bit weak and mine took a beating on the mountain. Thankfully, Asolo will send you a free replacement pair if you email them. Bottom line, you will feel like a boss in these boots. Worth every penny.

    Rated4out of5byfromWorth the priceThese boots are expensive, but you get what you pay for. I just got back from a week in Switzerland, and these boots were great. I only had a few weeks to break them in before my trip, but they fit great. Hiking in the snow, they kept my feet dry and warm. Plenty of traction on the slippery terrain. They are a bit heavy compared to some other models, but it didn't slow me down a bit. All in all, I'm extremely happy with these. I can't wait until I get them good and broken in. Easily my new favorite pair of boots.

    Rated5out of5byfromTop of the line bootsVery comfortable right out of the box. Stiff mid sole provides confidence and stability in uneven / rough terrain. Went hiking a few miles with these right out of the box and didn't have to worry about step placement or discomfort. I got to focus on the scenery and the terrain, and never once had a traction, comfort, or stability problem. Maybe the best boots on the market. Also, I bought the EE wide width and was very pleased with the fit, as I do have a wider than normal foot.

    Rated3out of5byfromGood boots....but not for meWe are new to hiking but wanted to get a quality boot. We liked the look of this boot and it had great reviews. I personally could not find much wrong with the boot other than it was heavy and it did not fit me properly. I have feet 1 whole size different from each other so a proper fit is going to be difficult for me. The boot on the larger foot was great but we could not get a comfortable fit on the smaller foot even with many accomodations. All in all, it was a great boot but just not for me and my mismatched feet! Happy hiking!

    Rated2out of5byfromStiff and ankle twistingI bought these because of the reviews I've read and I was seriously disappointed. I put over 800 miles on these boots and turns my ankle 5 times, once a serious sprain. they are nice boots comfy, waterproof, but the sole is too stiff for those that like barefoot. Step on a rock in these boots and your ankle is going to regret it. The sole is like a wood plank, step on anything round and you will have an accident. I have done hikes in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, N Carolina with these boots and they are NOT good for rugged terrain. I May be wrong because I prefer barefoot hiking and I wanted a boot for cold weather. I returned these with no problem, and still looking for a boot for cold weather that is more of a barefoot feel. For those of you that like the feel of the trail on your feet, don't buy these boots.
