Toughest and most comfortable boots I've owned in 35 years of heavy duty boot abuse. Bought a pair nearly 9 years ago and they are still going strong. Unfortunately I did not look after them as well they looked after me, and allowed the lining leather to dry out and crack- my fault. Beyond that, not... Read More

    Already know these boots rock, just wanted to give some helpful tricks when breaking them in, I use Dr.scholls gel insole,then I bought 2 pairs of Dr. Scholls memory foam insoles 4$ a pair at walmart.the firts pair i use on the top of my feet ,the second pair I cut the heel portion off about 4 inches, I use this heel part in the heel of the boots completely making my feet padded ,I wear them all day long with no blistering and no discomfort ,the heel portion I bend about 2 inches under the heel to keep it from sliding up,I have no issues, works great.

    Absolutely glad these classic boots are being made again,I grew up wearing this style of hiking boot, I had them back in the 80's and I out grew them before ever wearing them out,it doesn't bother me that I takes some time to break them in because its worth it. I just rotate them with my sneakers throughout the day until they fit like a glove. If you're looking for a indestructible boot look no further

    Beautiful boot. I already own 2 pairs of Alico boots. ( Summit and Tahoe) I also have purchased a pair of Summits for my son. I love them and wear them all winter. They occasionally make it out into the Pennsylvania woods but truth be told they are more than I would ever need for what they are used for. They fit like gloves after a sensible break in period. I have replaced the insoles. I ordered the New Guides for more of the same. When they arrived and I had them in my hand I had to face the fact that I will not be doing any serious, above the treeline trekking anytime soon, if ever. These are serious boots and I just can't justify breaking them in or adding them to my rotation. I reluctantly returned them to STP. Will probably order a third pair of summits eventually!

    So I own all kinds of mountaineering boots Lowa experts, Aslo GV , Scarpa, Hanwag, Zamberlan, Mammut, etc... about 20 pair. And I will say i will compare these to my zamberlan Latemar . Now i will just say what are my concerns and you can glean something;
    . I wear size 11 in some and 11.5 in others. Since this was my first pair of this brand i took the advise from another reviewer and ordered a 11.5 taking into account they were a very heavy duty boot. I have worn these for a couple of weeks now and a size 11 would have been O.K. as the toe box has room.
    Just a side note i usually dont change an order size unless the majority of reviewers comment on this issue or the distributor incerts. Aslo as a side note Amazon is good about including this information if a problem in their description. Now the sole. Not an issue as i put these on and could comfortably walk 20 miles on pavement. I mean they are stiff but smooth. I aslo use the stairs with these no problem. But i aslo have to say that is all i wear night and day are both mountaineering and heavy duty hiking boots. Now the weight . some look at the 6 lbs for the pair as a daunting task. Well my Latemar are about 4 lbs 4oz for the set and i cannot tell really the difference. In conclusion they are in my opinion already to hit the trail out of the box. Very sturdy great ankle support but again they are built like a tank but very comfortable. I will say with my stp discount what a deal!!!

    Have had these boots for about a month now and am still in the process of breaking them in. Fit is true to size. Great ankle support. Super tough leather. They feel better conformed to my foot each time I wear them. Bought these after going through several pairs of la sportiva summits (soles worn out). Any decent cobbler should be able to replace the sole on the Alicos. A very well-made boot. Plan on ordering a second pair the next time my wife tries to get me to wear boat shoes.

    • Answer Due to the nature of the closeout business, we often receive items in limited quantities. Therefore, popular sizes and colors can sell out quickly. Occasionally we are able to reorder a product, but closeout items are typically unable to be reordered. We suggest signing up for the My Updates as the best way to monitor incoming products. You will receive email notifications of our newest stock items.

    • Answer best i can do is give you the differential for me, which you can likely translate: i wear a 12.5 nike, a 12.5 adidas, etc in running and most athletic shoes...i wore a 12 in alicos, HOWEVER, i live in Los Angeles which is warm and i wear a thin 'dress' sock with my hiking shoes...if i was to wear a thick hiking sock i would het a 12.5 as long as you don't wear your running shoes tight, but rather with adequate room, i feel they should translate to your alico hiking boot size...but i cannot guarantee this. as a separate note, in most all brands of cowboy and western boots i take a size 11 to 11.5...if that helps. good luck, these are a great, if heavy old style, boot.

  • Question “Are your Alico New Guide Mountaineering Hiking Boots seconds?”
    Asked on 2/7/2015 12:32:58 PM by Through Hiker from Wisconsin
    • Answer totally not seconds...these were newer than new, nothing of a defect or glitch, with all tags, etc...i got asuper price as i have on other boots at sierra but none of it has ever been a second.

    • Answer If you are asking, if my Alico boots are my second pair of Alico boots,no they are my first. However, my previous boot boots were of the same kind, hard leather mountaineering boots (Tyrol brand), which are not manufactured anymore. The good part is that my new Alico Mountaineering boots are far more comfortable and didn't need to be broken in. I wore them right away for a three hour hike on a steep partially snow covered trail and, I didn't experience any discomfort or soreness afterwards.
      Best regards!

    • Answer Thanks, all, but I really want to heat from someone who works at Sierra Trading Post. My understanding is that seconds may be packaged and tagged as new but may have a defect of some kind that may or may not be evident to the customer.

  • Question “Was this boot designed for narrow, normal, or wide feet?”
    Asked on 9/27/2014 1:59:09 PM by Nevada Smith from Reno
    • Answer Narrow to normal. I have wide feet and had to have them stretched to accommodate my big and small toes.

  • Question “Was this boot designed for feet with low-, medium-, or high-arches?”
    Asked on 9/27/2014 1:57:47 PM by Nevada Smith from Reno
    • Answer The insoles that comes with these boots are junk. Having high arches (amongst other foot issues) I use custom insoles with these boots and all of my footwear. That being said once these boots break in they fit my feet amazingly.
      Answered on 9/27/2014 2:08:46 PM by squirrler from greater rocky mountain region
    • Answer The boot itself is constructed with virtually no arch. That being said, they provide an insole that has a medium arch. I believe this is the norm, they expect you to tune the fit with aftermarket insoles if the originals don't work. Superfeet make a nice selection, as do several other quality orthotic providers.
      Answered on 9/27/2014 2:28:17 PM by Bob from Eastern Oregon
    • Answer Cannot make a firm statement on that question. Taking measurement with a Brannock Device (measures foot size) is the sure way to know. A trip to the shoe store for a measure is the sure way. I am in the USA, Canada and UK sizing is different.

      I can say Alico boots are made true to sixe.

      Sorry I could not be of better help

  • Question “what is the length of insole for US8?”
    Asked on 2/4/2014 5:32:18 AM by TL from denmark
    • Answer The Alico is an extremely rugged boot!
      But when you are in the mountainous terrain for 12 to 16 hours daily, you will need an insole insert
      such as the one offered by Danner Boots. We have found that even a Dr. Scholls is a great asset.
      If there is a trout stream anywhere near I always carry the flyrod. This means an occasional wet
      feet. This is where the more expensive Dr. Scholl works best since they will dry out quickly.

      By using the inserts I have never had a problem with the Alico insole. What I have noticed is that
      without the inserts you will end up with sore and tired feet and legs by the end of the day. A good
      insert and this usually never happens even in rocky terrain above timberline.

  • Question “What do they recommend for conditioning and waterproofing these boots?”
    Asked on 12/5/2013 11:28:20 PM by Dridzz from California
    • Answer This item has a leather upper. You should use a product specifically designed for waterproofing leather. We have a line of Nikwax products, such as item 3097C that may interest you.
