old fashioned excellence

Verified Buyer Reviewed by snow leopard from western mass on Monday, April 18, 2011
I purchased a pair of Alico Summits a month ago and I liked them very much . The quality of leather and the craftsmanship is unparalleled. They look as if they were handmade one at a time. The leather is top notch and very durable and the soft leather inner lining feels heavenly. Traction is great with very good ankle support. There is plenty of toe room especially in the height. I can actually move my big toe without restriction. The boots need about 2 weeks to break them in as they are a bit stiff out of the box. As with any boots,do yourself a favor and buy a pair of insoles. I added a pair of heat moldable insoles from "Sole" and the Alicos are now my go to boot. I bought a second pair last week.
