    These look & feel like old school hiking boots. In that light there are a couple of things I had forgotten about traditional leather hiking boots. The first is the squeaks & creaks and the second is the break in period. I have two coats of leather conditioner and 14 miles of hiking built up two miles at a time and still feels like there's quite a way to go before I would feel comfortable about taking these out on a 4+ mile hike. I replaced the inner soles after the first hike and so far the laces have held up.

    I have been wanting these boots for awhile, so when I saw them at the great price - I had to get the reviews about them running a size big, so i ordered down and they fit great. Very pleased with these boots! Can't wait to go hiking in them:)

    Adding to my initial low, 3-star review, now I can let buyers know that the boots squeak with each step. That is inexcusable and cheapens them even more. And you cannot return them unless the are like new, with original tags in place. How do you test boots--even on the street-- and keep all the tags dangling as you walk around? Down to 2 stars. Stick with REI and LLBean.

    My old HH Brown leather hiking boots lasted 20 years and had been resoled three times. They were done. Since they don't make them any more, I was looking for something similar in appearance and features. It seemed that the Alico Backcountry was a match. I paid $149.99. There are two disappointments: 1. They run large. I wear 9-1/2. The Alico 9-1/2 feel like 10. Too loose. 2. The lace eyelets are shiny like chrome, and have sharp edges as if they were stamped out from a tin can. I think they will chew up the inside of my pants cuffs, so I'm having to file the burrs off (for $149.99 I shouldn't have to do that). The boots are not inexpensive, but they are a disappointment. I intend to keep them, since I have worn them and they are therefore not returnable. Ask me again in five years. . .

    Fantastic. Supportive, water proof, comfortable. Immediately supple, essentially didnt need to break in before first use on big hike in rain and snow. Does run slightly big. I wear 11.5 for my Merrels and most sneakers. I needed 11 for these and it fits great.

    OK, So we got completely [...] on all winter long and I've been using these boots as my every day shoes for months now. #1 they rock and are super comfy. #2 they keep my feet warm and dry #3 they look rad and I get tons of compliments on them . Overall, they kick @$$! The downside = the leather still squeaks even after a good treatment(s) and they brown dye comes off pretty easy. I'd actually prefer them to be the normal color instead of being dyed at all...seems like a waste if it's just going to wear off after a hike or 2.

    Could not be more pleased with my boots. These were very comfortable right out of the box. Prior to getting 50 miles on my new boots they felt almost as good as my best house shoes. Without hesitation I can truthfully say these are the best hiking boots I have ever owned. Though the first Alico boots I have owned, I am sold on them. This will not be my last pair.

    These are a fantastic boot at an unbelievable price. I bought an 11W and couldn't be happier with the feel and fit.
