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

    I usually hike in Danner Mountain Light II boots, great leather boot but getting very expensive. I bought these for half the price and they are better built than the Danner from what I can see. The leather is quite thick and stiff, will take a couple of weeks to break in. They weight about 3 pounds each, the Danner is about 2 pounds per boot. I have about 5 coats of Shoe Grease on them now, they are darkening up nicely. So far no complaints, nice boots.

    I haven't had much time or opportunity to do heavy backpacking or mountain trekking in years, but I still love the stability and gait of a traditional heavy hiking boot. I wore the hell out of a pair of Raichles from the early 80s through 2008 and 8 or 10 sets of soles. From then until now, I have worn out a couple of pairs of the disposable glue-shoes that pass as hiking boots these days. I love these Alico boots. They are rock solid going up or down in the steep, the skree, or the slippery slope. Haven't been in the wet, yet, but they are sno-sealed and ready.

    Very comfortable after broken in. Very heavy but I feel sure footed. The best boots for the long off trail hiking.

    I have worn Alico Guide boots every day for the past 20 years walking on concrete shop floors. They last for years and are like marshmallows on the feet. The newest pair is everything I expected. Although Guide boots are a little pricey, they give good value and more comfort when compared to the 4 or 5 other brands that I have tried. Alsoots o, these b

    • 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 I believe it is due to the STP boot being an older run of the same boot; only deference I see is the no longer red strings which I changed out to brown anyway, the Alico pic shows non-ball bearing laces (poorer design to save cost), Alico moved the bend of the ankle speed lace up (bad move in my opinion). IMO, the boot sold by STP is a better design, most likely Alico made changes to save cost. I love the boot so much I have (3) pair; 2 put up in reserve in case the boot ever becomes no longer made; I wear in every day 12 plus hours a day for doing everything.

    • Answer The STP Guides is non-ball bearing laces also on the picture.
      Another difference is the double foam on the top of STP ones, which in my opionion is a weak spot.

    • Answer After reading several reviews about "break-in time", When my New Alico Guides arrived, I decided to do what I have done for years. After taking them out of the box and admiring them, I applied a nice heavy coat of Obenaufs LP. If you're not familiar with Obenaufs, give it a try. You won't be disappointed. Its all natural and......not only does it provide an extra water barrier, it protects and restores your leather by replenishing the natural oils and nutrients. It will also help with softening the leather, making "break-in" a lot easier and faster. After the first coat of Obenaufs was applied, I let my New Guides set over night, fighting the urge to put them on and wear them the next day. After twenty four hours, I applied a second coat of Obenaufs and again, let my Alicos set over night, giving them time to soak up the Obenaufs.
      I've been wearing my Alico New guides for two weeks now. They get more comfortable every day. In my opinion, there was little to no "Break-In" time. these boots are OUTSTANDING!
