Old fashioned quality

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Shawn from Vermont on Sunday, February 15, 2015
As many have said before me, these are old fashioned, quality boots. They take time to break in, are a bit heavy and are constructed of real leather with a great Vibram sole that can be replaced if worn out. The boots seem to be true to size for me - I wear a 9 1/2 dress shoe, a 10 1/2 running shoe and I ordered the Alicos in a 10 and it fits perfectly. I did take out the inner sole and add my own inner sole for a bit more support. Not an absolute requirement but I do that pretty typically. I haven't gotten the boots completely broken in yet but we're in the midst of winter so won't be doing a lot of hiking for a while. But I am very happy with this purchase. I'm sure I'll get a few looks from the youngsters in their more modern, lightweight hiking boots but these suit me just fine.
