Great Boots

Verified Buyer Reviewed by George Cordes from Ohio on Tuesday, May 5, 2015
In 1983, I bought a pair of Redwing hiking boots. I wore those boots for the next ten years. When they finally wore out, I went to Redwing to buy another just like the last. Unfortunately, I learned that the first had been made in Italy and that Redwing had since shifted its sourcing to China. The replacement boots lasted about two years. The next set started showing flaws after only six months. After a series of disappointing experiences, I did my homework and searched for Italian boots. I found and bought these Alico's. They look and feel astonishingly similar to that pair I remember from decades ago. Even more surprising, the price is is competitive with the comparable model that Redwing sources from China. They now show as closeout. Buy them while you can still get them.
