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...

Can't go wrong with all-leather boots. I purchased these based on the overall rating and number of positive reviews. Amazed at how comfortable they became after only a few days of wearing around the office. I look forward to getting them out in the mountains this summer.

I wanted to have a nice sturdy classic hiking boot without a Gore-tex lining for warmer dryer hiking conditions. This boot fit the bill, so I ordered in my usual size 12 wide. The boots feel a little bigger than what I am use to, but with a thick sock and my own insoles, they felt good when I tried them on. Like another reviewer said, the insole that comes with it is [...], like so many insoles that come with boots nowadays. This boot is the stiffest boot out of the box that I have ever purchased. After three weeks of wearing them around the house for many hours, they are now starting to mold to my foot and are becoming more supple every time I wear them. I have treated them a couple times with a leather conditioner and put a good coating of Obenaufs leather preservative, which has helped tremendously. I for see having this boot around for many years to come.

I broke my own rule on my first review and didn't include technical info about fit and feel so...here goes.
The liner is crappola. I tossed it and put in some super feet green insoles and they felt great. Break in is glacial. These things are stiff out of the box and take effort to make comfortable. I wore them to work for several weeks and when ever I could before taking them on a hike.
Once broken in...or at least sort of broken in...they felt a lot better. My first hike was good and every subsequent hike was better as the boot relaxed a little. The only problem, as I mentioned in my other review, was tired legs from the weight of these things.
There is a lot of room in the box toe which is good for me since I broke two toes years ago and they set a little crooked.
I usually wear a 10.5 or 11. I seem to remember that when I got these, they were listed in European sizes so I either got the 11 or a little larger. I'm glad I did as they fit great. These are not insulated and are not suited for long term snow conditions but getting a little bigger lets me use a liner and a thick hiking sock which gives me extended time when I do wear them in the snow.
The vibram soles let me grip on all kinds of surfaces. Some really wet surfaces are a little slick but as the soles wear I think they'll grip a little better.
At this stage of my life, and with the longevity I expect out of these boots, I will bet these will be the last hikers I buy and I'm looking forward to many happy miles.
If you are intending to wear heavy socks then you would order 1/2 size larger.

My feet measure 12 medium (D). I normally have to wear 13 shoes and in some cases 14 because my feet spread out under heavy load or after walking all day. I ordered the Alico Suimmit and the 12 Wide are good but just a touch too large with one pair of thick socks and with Superfeet Green insoles replacing the original Alico insoles. So from my perpective get your feet measured and just order that size, I think you should be OK with thick socks.
