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 have been searching for Italian made all leather boots, these Alico boots were EXACTLY what I wanted. Due to extreme arthritis in my knees and hips, I require a sturdy boot. They fit great and feel fantastic. I put them on as soon as they arrived and everyday since.

    Good quality boot. 3/4 shank, so yes, they do flex in the toe which is what you need. The vibram sole is old school deep lugs that wont clog with mud and loose traction like some of todays new-age boots. Will still work with proper crampons. They do need to be broken in to allow for more toe flex. My method is to start several months before you head to the high country. Start with short walks, adjusting the fit of the footbeds if hot spots develop at bottoms of feet. I wear double socks, New Zealand marino wool with a thin poly outer sock to protect the wool. I did install sorbothane footbeds, add a second thin footbed if required. Be sure the laces are tight at every eyelet, so the boot has to flex with your foot, not the other way around.
    Then lengthen the walks to wearing all day, distance at least a mile, include running some distance. Keep adding distance until you can hike all day, wear them all day.
    The boots will become your best friend. With a full pack, standing on one foot, you can stand on a rock edge the width of a pencil with no problem. With the same full pack you can glissade down snow or rock scree slopes with no problem. Wade thru rivers waist deep, ring your wool socks out on the other side, and keep going. Boulder jump with the same full pack no problem.
    I give them a rubbed in coat of sno-seal, nickwax, etc before each long outing.

    First of all, the laces in the picture are light brown and a red on the shoes I have received, this was a disappointment.
    It might help if you update the product picture on your site to reflect this important detail.

    Now to the bigger problem with the product.
    I know that mountaineering shoes are hard to break in, I did wear them around the house for a couple hours to make sure they fit well. To my huge disappointment, the softer leather on the side of the tongue rubbed off and cracked as you can see from the attached pictures. The softer leather seems to be aged or of inferior quality.

    This is extremely disappointing, as I do like the shoes and didn’t intend to return them otherwise.

    There is old world quality and workmanship built into these boots that is hard to find these days. With the one-piece leather upper and Norwegian welt they will last a lifetime with a little care. Even more remarkable is the STP price! These boots are GREAT!

    I live in Australia buying online can be quite risky when it come to correct sizing, especially with heavy duty style bootts like the Alico New Guide. I decided to live chat with Sierra Trading to get the best advice I could on sizing and I tell you not those guys at Sierra were spot on. My advice would be to choose a size larger and choose wide. Mine fit like a dream, a few pressure points but nothing you wouldn't expect from a boot of this quality and style. My boot needs vary lots from alpine hunting and cold winters to the warmth of the Oz summers. I have only just received these and I expect a lengthy brek in period but straight out of the box they are causing me no problems - get out there a invest they are well worth thr moner and Sierra's service is as good as it gets.

    • I have received the lace up option pictured in the first picture with brown laces, however, the laces were red. You can see a closeup in my review by MadHiker.

    • I basically wear 13 wide in all European boots. My experience with Alico boots: The regular width Alico North Cape Wellington Boots were too narrow for me, where as the Alico Summit's and Tahoe's in wide size were a little too wide. The Alico Guide's in regular width fit were a decent fit. As you can see, each Alico boot, especially, the toe can be different. Most likely, a wide in the Guide would create foot slippage, inside the boot, for you. Ordering a size down to counter the width problem may not necessarily work, also. Your toes could be banging against the end of the boot as you hike... Nevertheless, if I were you I would try anyway. STP has a great return policy and who knows, you might get lucky.
