simply AWESOME

Simply awesome. I lamented the fall of the Vasque sundowners, but this is an superb replacement that goes more than a few steps beyond the Sundowners in all respects.

After I got the first pair, I loved them so much that I got scared that should I ever wear them out, I might not be able to get another pair - so I bought another pair to keep on hand. I also have a pair each of the Guide and the summit.

These boots are like an artform as much as they are a serious backpacking and hiking boot. You will feel a sense of aesthetic pleasure when you remove them from the box. They are simply AWESOME.

I have not taken the Tahoe on an expedition yet, but I wore the Summit for 60 rugged miles in Montana last year, and they are simply unbeatable. No blisters after a brief break-in period. Very durable.

The tahoe is perfectly true to size WITH A THICK SOCK ON. Which is to say that it runs like maybe a quarter size big. My advice is to get your foot formally measured and buy exactly that size and wear a nice thick sock with the boot.

I e-mailed every hiker I know when these went on sale again. My best hiker buddy, also dissatisvied with his new sundowners also ordered TWO pair.

He and I have really put our money where our mouths are - between us we own 6 pairs of Alico boots. You won't be disappointed in this boot! you'll want to order a back-up pair!
