Alico Tahoe Hiking Boots )for men)

Verified Buyer Reviewed by redeyehawk from New Hampshire on Saturday, October 8, 2016
Well made boots, old world craftsmanship in a traditional hiking boot. I wear an 11.5, 2e in a good quality boot, mostly I have to go to a 12 2e(wide) in the more typical boots. Having read many of the comments on the Tahoe, I ordered an 11.5 w.
With a medium sock (Wigwam Volley xl) the boot fit with the included insole (which is very thin), upon replacing that insole with one half again as thick, the fit tightened a bit. I would have needed at least this thickness or more to be comfortable. Walking around the house I found the left boot to be a problem, where the boot flexed with each step, pressed downward into my toes from the middle of the boot to the outside left, pinching with every step. Had to return them, unfortunately.
After reading many comments and trying a pair, I'm thinking the brand is not a half size larger than other boots, more like a quarter, which does figure into the size one should plan on.
