Superb comfort and security

I hiked/backpacked in sandals for 20 years. As I grew older, the sole soles of my feet grew tender and my desire for good purchase on the downhills forced me into boots. I began testing light weight boots and proceeded up the weight ladder until I found comfort and security with the Alico's. Once broken in, these are backpacking puppies. But, breaking them in tested my resolve. Left boot was a good fit. However, the right boot did not fit my larger right foot. No, I did not attempt the old hike till you bleed break in method. I did spend more hours than I care to remember with a broom handle working the heel cup. Finally, with nothing to lose, I soaked the boot overnight then hiked until it was dry. Success! Just greased them up and slapped on a backpack. Oh, how sweet it is to have happy feet.
