Soles separated

Reviewed by GinoSLC from Salt Lake City, UT on Wednesday, September 28, 2011
I got the Alico Tahoe as a one of the few non-goretex options that still offered some ankle support. Support is adequate, but nothing special, and pathetic for how much they weigh. The lacing system is average; it could benefit from one fewer set of eyelets and one more set of quick-lace hooks. The right tongue won't behave no matter how I lace and re-lace.
The worst aspect of these boots is that I've just noticed the left sole is separating from the midsole. I've had this happen before on boots of this construction, but they were 10 years old and the glue had deteriorated. These are approximately one year old, with less than 20 miles of hiking on them. This would be unacceptable at HALF the price.
