Nice boot, though bill much too deep (in a 12 anyhow...)

Reviewed by Polyoly from Colorado on Friday, February 7, 2014
First off, the 12s (2) that I got both fit like a 12.5 or 13, which is not what I normally find in a Tele boot. Echoing the observation of another reviewer, the bill measured out at approx. 21.5mm (for a size 12) and won't fit in any of my Voile's. For various reasons, I don't like to sand down the bill, so sending back. It's a shame, because it's a beautiful boot overall and would probably break in great. I've found the other Alicos to flex like toys, but this model has a serious degree of lateral stability (though, really... nowhere near a serious plastic tele boot in groomed run applications). Decent touring boot nonetheless, if you can get it to fit your bindings. Hope that helps.
