good value

Only a week in, but I've walked a few miles in these on steep and rocky terrain, and so far not even a hint of a blister. They feel solid and protective, and not a squeak to be heard. They will take a while to break in, as they are stiff. Yet even when brand new, the leather liner fits like a glove. Also the toes are roomy, I guess for thick wool socks. It's nice to have some toe wiggle. I have to tighten up the laces usually a couple of times before I get them cranked down suitable.

My last boots were Lowa gtx (40 EUR/7.5 US). In the Alico's I got the 7 and have plenty of space. So I would say these Alico's run true to size of not a bit larger.

I take comfort knowing they are resoleable, so that is incentive to take care of the leather. I have some obenauf's that I plan on using on these.
