I now own and have used all three alico boots offered at sierra - Summit, Tahoe and Guide. I have hiked at least 200 miles in each style from steep to flat, soft to rocky, wet and dry. These boots were clearly made by very experienced professionals and the workmanship of these Italian cobblers is si... Read More

    These are well made boot. A little stiff at first but they break-in well and the wearer will be reward with quality long last boots.

    I had a pair of Asolo 520 hiking boots for about 10 years, I hiked the Appalachian Trail,Colorado, Grand Canyon and the Wind Rivers in Wyoming. I like these boots alot, comfortable and good support.
    Two years ago doing a 37 mile loop in the Winds, about mid-way the laminate on my left boot was blowing out and eventually the whole sole came off. The heel on my right boot was starting to separate. Luckly I had a pair of crocs for around camp, I've taken the insert out of the blown boot and put into the croc. A little slippery in muddy sections but worked out alright and was able to get to the trailhead. If I didn't have my crocs I'd be in trouble, the trails were way too rugged for any footwear lighter than sneakers.

    In buying another boot I wondered if boots made with the Norweigen stitching existed any more. My confidence in glued on soles had dipped a bit. Low and behold, STP had these Italian made Alico boots so I decided to try them.

    When I received them, the size I ordered were true to size. They are a beautifilly made boot, eyeing the stiching around the sole brings back the days when all your mid-weight boots were Norweigen stiching. I've replaced the inserts with the high volume Superfeet inserts and since hiked about 25 miles. They're a little stiff out of the box but comfortable, no one spot causing any irritation.

    I plan an upcoming trip in Aug-Sept. of 2015 on the John Muir Trail and the Alico's will be my boot of choice. I will give part two of this review on these boots. So far I give these a four star.

    I wanted a mid-weight boot for long weekend backpacking trips and getting around in the winters in WI. I liked the price, old school leather, and the wide option. With essentially no break-in, I completed a 20 mile, 2 1/2 day trip with my 11 year old son in the porcupine mountains, MI. I don't have the best knees / ankles so I wanted to make sure I had minimized risk of twisting an ankle. They performed as expected -- very stable, sturdy, and very comfortable. I tend to be more old school (example, using a 20 year + exterior frame pack) and this boot suits my style. I recommend augmenting with some inserts and treating with Manchester leather food. I can see these boots lasting me a long time. I am very pleased with my purchase. Thank you for the helpful reviews on this site.

    I bought 11s which is my normal shoe size. Fit is perfect with wool socks. I have fairly narrow foot especially at the heel, so bear that in mind when choosing width. For me size and simple style are perfect.

    I used to wear Vasque boots exclusively, but since they have moved their manufacture to china the quality has deteriorated to the point that the soles crack and are overall uncomfortable. I bought 2 pair at the same time and one broke down and the other bit into the top of my toes it was unbearable! They look the same as the Italion versions but believe me they are not! Enter the Alico Tahoe..comfy out of the box..broke in within a month and very sturdy. I seriously love these boots, my new favorites. I even ordered a second pair just to be sure i dont get stranded again with inferior boot choices. For me fit was spot on.

    • Answer These boots are true to size ,get 51/2 and wear a hiking sock and change the insoles to super feet green and you will be happy
      Answered on 11/16/2014 4:05:06 PM by Adkhunter from Bloomingdale,ny
    • Answer 5.5 if you plan on hiking mostly and wearing heavy thick socks. But for everyday use in warmer climates, perhaps the 5 would be more accurate. Mine were a little large, but mostly use with thick socks. Not sure about how easily a wrong size would be to return since mine worked out so well. But worth a shot either way. Hope that was helpful for ya "tiny feets". Enjoy!

    • Answer I have both the Tahoe and the Backcountry boot. The picture of the dark brown actually looks like it is the Backcountry and the light brown the Tahoe. The Backcountry is glued and the Summit and Tahoe are stitched. I think that Sierra has switched up some of the photos by accident.

    • Answer It is a triple layered, triple colored sole sewed onto to the boot. The base piece, the black rubber part of the sole is glued to the middle section or mid-layer of the sole. Based on the picture above, the pair I have clearly have a different sole than the one used in the darker brown which appears to be one piece.
      Answered on 10/29/2014 5:57:25 AM by Steve Feuerstein from New York
    • Answer Mine are stitched, which is what I wanted and expected. I didn't notice the difference in the picture. I purchase these boots because I had a similar pair, which I just had repaired and continue to use. I like the boots so much, I wanted to make sure I had a pair when the old ones finally wear out, although they still seem to have considerable life left in them. As you may guess, I really like these boots, and I am equally pleased with the new pair even though I am still getting to know them.

    • Answer I ordered the Dark Brown Tahoe boots and they are stitched (same as the Light Brown photo style, only darker). A huge selling point for me was the stitching.
      I think STP has posted an incorrect photo for the Dark Brown Tahoe.

  • Question “are this boots waterproof or not some reviews say they are 100% waterproof while spec say non waterproof?”
    Asked on 9/6/2014 2:55:31 PM by stan the worker from north carolina
    • Answer They are as water proof as full grain leather boot can be. They have a lining, but the lining is intended to wick not prevent moisture, like waterproof liners. That being said, I've treated them and they have stayed dry so far (day hikes and wooded geocaching).

    • Answer These boots are water resistant oiled leather. Water resistant, not waterproof, they breathe better than waterproof with a membrane.
      Answered on 9/6/2014 4:34:25 PM by GregL from NorCal
    • Answer I have not worn them in damp conditions. The tongue design would prevent water from filling the boot unless submerged. They are good boots.

    • Answer I have worn these boots regularly for around the past 12 years. I can't recall my feet or socks ever getting wet. However, the leather does not repel water, and the boots should be air dried, if the leather has soaked up much moisture.
      Answered on 9/8/2014 9:18:54 AM by General Wear George from Florida
    • Answer If you wax them up they will be fairly water resistance but they do not have a Gore-Tex liner so eventually they will leak.

  • Question “About sizing, Are these boots sized like a work boot or a athletic shoe?”
    Asked on 4/1/2014 7:10:19 AM by Glenn from California
    • Answer Not quite sure what you mean as I have never discerned a noticeable difference.
      What I will say is that I have a rather wide foot and a high arch; these are the most
      comfortable new boots I can ever remember finding. The fit is excellent and the
      craftsmanship stellar. The only catch is that the 'break-in' is serious but that's easily
      remedied with a few good long hikes or several days just wearing them. Worth the
      effort and the price is incredible for handmade Italian hiking boots.
      Go for it!!!

    • Answer Like a work boot! The Alico Tahoe has quite a lot of interior volume. I tried a smaller size when I noticed the boot's volume, but chose the larger size for the length that I needed. To take up some volume, I purchased a pair of high quality insoles ("Sole" brand) and new medium thickness Smartwool hiking socks. The boots then benefit from a break-in period of a few day hikes. Also, check out the boot lacing pattern alternatives on this Sierra site. After break-in, I headed out backpacking overnight, with a good load of camera gear, traveling in very rugged Rocky Mountain terrain. The Alicos were in their element on this trip, and performed wonderfully -- supportive, comfortable, no hot spots, and good protection. Athletic shoe? No, although with the volume taken up as I described, these boots will have good overall contact as they continue to soften and mold to your feet. Athletic shoe? No. The Alicos are built with Norwegian welt outsole construction. A Salomon light hiker would be the athletic shoe comparable.

    Asked on 9/15/2013 5:42:51 PM by jimbo from virginia
