replaced Merrell Wilderness backpackers

Verified Buyer Reviewed by tundra woman from Portland OR on Saturday, January 5, 2013
I am a woman with a size 8.5 foot, usually wear a 9 in my heaviest backpacking boot because I like extra room for long treks. I have gone through two pairs of Merrell Wilderness boots for 15 years each (so I am getting old). Needed a new pair to climb Mt Shasta this year- NONE available in my size, male or female, anywhere. Purchased these Alico Tahoe boots in men's 7.5- they are perfect. Only difference I can note is that the Merrell wilderness has a far sturdier cuff- which is also difficult to break in, but may last longer. If I get 10 years I will be pleased with these boots- my own custom foot beds fit perfectly.
