Wondering what a well used Andrew Artico would look like? These come with wool inner boots by the way. The last two hooks are actually on the inner boots' cuff!

Between the boots and your new avatar I'm like, "woah sh*t just got real."

No no! Not mine, I don't think I would buy a pair of used boots that worn in. These are for our visual pleasure only!

My 75mm leather quiver is composed of: Alfa Advance 75mm, Garmont tour (back-ups), Crispi Sydpolen and the Alico Teletour. If I end up with a pair of Andrews, it will be the Zenith. Then again, I have deceided to get my Teletours resoled by Dave the Cobbler.

looks like many good times were had in those boots! They look solid, with a thick midsole. I'm not feelin' the red color! Must be a Euro thing....it's like Ferrari Red

I didn't think I'd like red boots, but when I saw those I wanted a pair.

So are Alico's Glide any good? I Came across some and a decent price I think. There is also the double boot.

The Glide's didn't fit my feet - they're more XC-focused boots. if they fit you it's good. The doubles are really high-quality boots.
