permanent boots

Verified Buyer Reviewed by newmexico to michigan from northern Michigan on Friday, June 5, 2009
classic "waffle stompers" after a few weeks wearing these solid leather/vibram boots they feel like an extension of my feet. I added a nice orthotic on top of the very thin insoles and made up for the slight oversize problem...I would have done this anyway as I like a good arch support on boots I'll be wearing all day. the breathable leather (NO-WAX) dries quickly and the breathable lining kept the sweat down. I saw the new alico catalog (looking up their leather care recomendation) and it looks like Alico is changing to the standard overpriced and overcomplicated boots everyone else is selling. Grab these beauties before they dissappear.
a piece of mountaineering history, never improved on.
