Using for a work boot

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Gary from WV on Tuesday, June 28, 2016
This is my 4th pair of Alico's the previous pairs are all used for "outdoor adventures". I own a landscape/lawn care company and for the past several years have stuck with traditional "work boot brands". I ususally go through a pair per year mostly due to the soles wearing out. I decided on the Summit this time due to the Vibram sole (something you can't hardly find on another brand) and the comfort. First thing I did was replace the insoles. I love the way the boots feel but the insoles are the weak spot. I prefer the SuperFeet Green insoles and they make the boots 10X better for 12+ hours daily wear. The only issue I've had is I believe the soles must not be gas/oil rated as a few times when my guys or myself have spilled a little gas filling up equipment and step in it the soles become extremely slick until they dry. I know, I know these boots weren't designed for what I'm using them for but based on my fitbit and phone pedometer I put close to 100 miles on them in the first week and they are becoming great for my work. The reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because of the insoles and the non oil/gas resistant soles. I do love my Alico's though.....
