Great fit, old school lesson

I normally do not buy boots online because of the fit issue. Different brands, different sizes. These Alico boots are spot-on the right size. With my own wool felt insoles, the fit is customized to me now. Heavy duty - with boots like these, they need to be broken in a bit before a big hike. Same goes for any boot worth the long-haul. Full grain leather everywhere including a leather liner. Hunting for a boot without Gore-Tex took awhile but these are perfect. I am confident these boots will be around for a long time. That was just what I was aiming for! I live in the mountains so I can see these boots as year-round partners for work and backpacking.
