    I'm glad I finally talked myself into buying a pair of these hiking boots. I am not a backpacker nor am I a serious hiker anymore (age). I like the look of the boots and that they are all leather with a Vibram sole. Very thick leather and stiff boot. I will take care of that with several applications of Pecard leather dressing and by wearing them around the house and out goofing off in town before I take them out into the woods/hills.

    I did have an issue with the first pair I received. When removing them, after wearing them around the house a few hours, I noticed a couple of stiches on a corner of the padded tongue had been missed and the foam was showing. I could have taken the boot to the local cobbler and had him put a few stitches in the tongue to correct the problem at minimal cost to me. I didn't do that because I am lazy and although I got a very good deal on these normally very expensive boots, they ARE new and new boots should be perfect.

    A little further inspection revealed a thin strip of the foam padding was showing inside that same tongue on the same boot, down the same side of the tongue that was missing a stitch or two. Apparently it had poked out a little during manufacturing and was sewn so that a thin strip was outside of the liner of the tongue, ie. showed just along the outside edge of that stitching. I didn't like that. The issue did not and would not have prevented the padded tongue from doing its job, nor would that specific flaw have become worse with wear, I don't think.

    At any rate, I exchanged the first pair and received the new pair in just a few days. I am excited about getting these boots broken in so I can strut around pretending to be a Backpacker. I might even wear them to church. Very nice boots, very, very nice.

    These boots are sized correctly for someone with Roman/Italian type feet; meaning first three toe digits are almost equal length. With these shoes a size 10.5 seems to be correct...with Chinese/Northern European shoes I need a size 11 1/2-12. The northern European shoes appear to be made for a more triangular shaped foot.

    Break in relatively easily. This sounds corny, but I usually stretch shoes by wedging a toy rubber balls in the shoe; one small ball in the toe, two tennis ball sized wedged together across the ball of the foot area, one baseball to take up space where the arch of the foot would be, and then a softball where the ankle joint is...then lace the shoes up really tight and let them sit for a week or so...break them in by wearing them to shovel snow off the driveway and walk the dog in the winter; they seem to have good traction, as compared to other brands of shoes.

    The factory laces were replaced with 80" of #4 starter cord (used for rope starters on gasoline engines). I attempted to find some small nylon rope or such; this seems to work ok.

    I have some foot issues from a horse accident. The boots have a lightweight shank and leather construction, which supports my foot. These boots are constructed such that (if sized correctly) a persons foot is lashed to the sole and shank of the shoe. This also limits chance of spraining an ankle on uneven/rocky terrain.

    Also, the all leather shoes should be better in the summer. Like another reviewer commented the shoes with the waterproof liners are like wearing plastic bags around in the summer.

    Have had several comments about the obvious high quality construction of these shoes. Only negative comment is the soles sometimes leave black

    marks on linoleum floors.

    With a sale on these boots I decided to purchase as I was looking for a slightly lighter pair vs. my now probably close to 10 yrs years old Gronell hikers also bought from STP. Very well constructed, I have another pair of Alicos that I really like and have had a few years (the North Cape Wellingtons) so I knew what I was purchasing. At this level boots are not meant to last only a couple seasons. These are boots that will last for years and once broken in are super comfortable with leather exteriors and full leather lining. Definitely stiff out of the box, but don't be put off by that. I have worn these on one 45 min. hike and they are already much more comfortable and move more naturally with each subsequent step.

    I owned a number of Italian, German, Swiss and American make hikers in the past. Without a doubt, these are the best and most durable boots I have used. The craftsmanship is outstanding, the leather lining is comfortable, and the one piece body construction is second to none. They are very stiff at first and will take a significant amount of time to break in. Overall, the Alico Wind River is a great deal!

    • Answer I don't have the Backcountry but have this boot and found it to fit true to size. I also have the North Cape Wellies and think their sizing is pretty consistent (definitely a different fit with the Wellingtons but overall consistency is there). Hope this helps.

    • Answer The wind river boot fit my feet in length. Perfect amount of room for me in the toe box. It was the tongue and gusset that did not fit over the top of my foot correctly. The gusset would not fold into the boot leaving a large lump on top of my feet which caused much pain. In addition to the pain the boots caused, because of the tongue, the boot looked bad. It was very obvious they were ill fitting on my feet.

      I ordered the same size in the backcountry as I did in the wind river boot. The shape of the toe box in the backcountry boots did not fit my feet correctly. My middle toe and my big toe were ok in the boots, but the next three toes in each boot hit the side of the toe box as well as the end of the boot. In other words, there was too much curve on the outside edge of the toe box of each boot. I put them on, laced them up, stood up and that is as far as I went. Walking in them would have been wasted effort.

      I returned both pair of boots. I liked the way the boots were made and I wanted to be able to wear them, but they just did not fit my feet.
