My old HH Brown leather hiking boots lasted 20 years and had been resoled three times. They were done. Since they don't make them any more, I was looking for something similar in appearance and features. It seemed that the Alico Backcountry was a match. I paid $149.99. There are two disappointments: 1. They run large. I wear 9-1/2. The Alico 9-1/2 feel like 10. Too loose. 2. The lace eyelets are shiny like chrome, and have sharp edges as if they were stamped out from a tin can. I think they will chew up the inside of my pants cuffs, so I'm having to file the burrs off (for $149.99 I shouldn't have to do that). The boots are not inexpensive, but they are a disappointment. I intend to keep them, since I have worn them and they are therefore not returnable. Ask me again in five years. . .
