As a long time hiker/backpacker in our Sierras, Rockies, and a few trips to the Sawtooths, I highly value good boots. I usually get 1-2 years out of my boots before the soles wear out and almost every boot made now is NOT re-sole-able. When I needed new boots for this years adventures, I decided to see what the excellent reviews were all about with these Alico boots. Break in was almost not needed as I wore them in my neighborhood park for less than 10 miles and they fit like a glove. On the trail, traction, comfort, and breath ability is excellent. After a few hikes, I treated them with a leather treatment and it gave them added waterproofing..I can stand in a creek and they are still dry! Fit: I wear size 12 wide in most boots/shoes, but went with the 12D and fit was perfect. If you have very wide feet, go with the wide size. Love the larger toe box too! All told, these are the most comfortable boots I've ever used and I've probably used 10 pair of high quality boots in the past 30 years. If you want great traction, ankle support and comfort, these are your boots. Thank you Alico for making these high quality boots affordable.
