These boots are hard to find. Alico boots aren't common and where they're found the Yoho is usually the stocked model. These are very well made boots. They have stiff Clusaz soles and are leather lined. (I would never buy a pair of Cambrelle lined boots now.) They take some break-in time, but considering the ruggedness of the boot it's worth working through. $225 sounds steep, but these are real Italian beauties easily worth their price tag.
