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

    Reading many of the reviews on this site, I purchased a pair of Summits since many stated the New Guide to be very heavy, etc.

    As for the Summits, they are very well made and appear of high quality, but they are more like molded-sole "hikers", not really stout mountain boots. I sent them back.

    I have worn Whites for many, many years but have had numerous problems with them and decided to try something different. I have a pair of Asolos that are very comfortable but have a sold tread that is simply dangerous on slppery terrain, very poor. I actually took an angle grinder and cut grooves in the soles to improve the grip and that helped. I've used them very hard and the soles on mine eventually peeled off, too, but I reglued them with contact cememtn and sealed the entire edges with the excellent product Free Sole. But I still needed a replacement for my Whites Loggers.

    I bought a pair of Alico New Guides. I am just breaking them in now and they appear to be exactly what I have been looking for.

    For those who really need a stout boot to live in and cover lots of rough terrain in, don't fall for the horror stories of the weight of the New Guides. They are NOT that heavy. Yes, they are heavier than tennis shoes, but if you need srong foot and nakle support on rocky and rough terrain, no flimsy-soled boot will do. I have not yet worn these hard but they appear to be of really excellent materials and construction and tho I was a Whites user for many years, like these better.

    Due to the onepiece construction and conformation, I am able to slip a 3/8" lift in one boot and still make it fit. The lacing system allows this without having to have a custom shoe built.

    And man....am I happy to see a boot with an actual Vibram sole.

    I live in and need very sturdy boots and look forward to updating these.

    My feet as custom sized run 10 and 10.5. I ordered both a 10.5 and an 11. The 10.5's are going back as they are just a smidge short. I like the generally narrow feel to the boot. Give the foot support side-to-side.

    For those who are scared off by the horror stories of "too heavy", "too hard", etc, don't be. These are good boots. I did initial breakin wearing them indoors for 2 days and they began to conform to my feet very well. I hope they turn out in the mountains as they appear to be; Excellent boots.

    An all around excellent boot, a extreme boot for extreme conditions. Having worn Alico foot wear I knew what to expect, good sound quality materials put together with care and gifted craftsmanship. Sized as stated for a perfect fit. Size for a heavy boot sock, lace up and enjoy a walk in the out of doors.

    Out of the box these boots looked amazing. The craftsmanship is second to none. The boot itself has no flex and feels like steel. I have had good boots in the past that needed wearing in but these seemed excessive. I wore them for a day around the house and was worried that I would never be able to break these babies in. In fact I re-boxed them and asked for a refund as I though that my feet would not be able to take the strain. Once back in the box I decided to take a more in depth view of the reviews at STP before sending them back. The reviews convinced me to break open the box one more time. Thank the heavens I did. One more day on my feet they felt great. The size is pretty much true to size (13D) but if I had the option I probably would have chosen wide version. found a little bit of slide in the heal box but new insoles and lace adjustment cured this. I have had Zamberlan mountain boots back in the day and walked Austrian, Italian and French alps these are as good. the leather is exceptional. For the record I have not yet tested these boots on anything more than the flatlands at the moment and have not put them through a wet day. I hope they last as they should.

    Just wore them for the first time yesterday. Wore them four hours and I can say is wow! When folks talk about a little stiff and need to break in LISTEN. They are like SKI BOOTS but they did slightly better after a few hours, which was all my feet could take. Made the old RedWing Boots seem like tennis shoes. I am a farmer/landscaper/Boy Scout by trade. I wanted a boot I could beat up and still last a long time. Before wearing I gave them a few coats of neatsfoot oil compound to soften them up and it gave them a nice rich dark brown color. They were originally very grey. I intend to use zamberlan hydrobolic cream from now on mostly because I have lots of it. They are very solid and look like fireman boots. Will not win styling points with the cappuccino crowd. Some one said they are what you would have if you but your foot into the side of a cow. But they are what they are very very tough service boots. They will protect your ankle if you are hiking in rocky areas and not blow out on you. I originally bought the Zamberland 1025 Tofane (460.00) and wow GOD SMILED as those were created! I can wear them to church absolutely beautiful and unbelievably comfortable and I still have them:). They are made to last 30 years yet I could not bring myself to scuff new zamberlands just yet while working under a tractor so I bought the alico's for that and service work in landscaping. I can slam these boots against a spade and never worry about hurting them. I am giving them 5 stars for at their price level they do what they are suppose to do better then any local boot I could buy. I have never had boots that truly needed to be BROKEN IN and I was warned so in good conscience I will not deduct any points for that. Did I mention untill they are broken in they are like SKI BOOTS?

    Excellent Boots. They do take a while to break in but once they do very comfortable. I am actually using them as work boots and light hikers and have no issues with them being to heavy etc.
