THIS IS THE ONE

Reviewed by Hoz from Midwest USA on Wednesday, February 4, 2009
After being discouraged with modern "lightweight" hiking shoes for years I have finally found a boot made in the old style tradition. THIS IS THE ONE.

Reasonably stiff out of the box this boot is softening up nicely after two days wear. Good support, fine finished full grain leather, excellent craftsmanship. Those Italians know their job.

No reason to settle for inferior footware shabbily made from nylon, rubber and plastic that wear out after half a seasons use. The Norwegian welt construction insures I will have these boots for many years to come.

The Alico Tahoe is a great all leather boot and a fantastic value.
