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

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Regular at Billy Goat Trail from Washington, DC on Tuesday, February 9, 2016
    Just received a couple of weeks ago and have been breaking them in on walks around town. After 5 miles, starting to feel really good. Everything is quality about these boots: fit, leather, stiching, sole: especially at the price being sold at STP. Read most of the reviews, before buying & they seem accurate. Only "not totally great" item is the d-ring lacing: takes a little more focus/effort in getting the tie tight.

    True sizing, no break in time, good ankle support. I'm going to get them loosened up and take them to Israel on a dig this summer.

    I started out with the Osolo leather boots sold here at STP, but they just never fit me well. I am usually a 12EE in boots and they were too narrow even in a 13EE. So I decided to try these Alico boots and they fit great! Quality of construction and materials is about on par with the Osolo's, but the fit is much better. Also, they are welted so resoling should be easier. The only complaint I have is there could be better cushioning at the ball of the foot. Otherwise they are very well cushioned inside. I am very happy with these and I am glad to have another boot in rotation next to my Danners.

    I ordered Alico Tahoe's back in November, and I fell in love with them. Everything about this except the fact that the Ds were a little narrow on me, which is my fault. I would have rated them a 5, but after 2 months of sidewalk breakin the stitching holding the upper tongue came undone. STP processed the return no questions asked (Great!), but the replacements I received are a completely different leather. It has a very Pleather look to it, but the tag on the boots swear it's a waterproof FGL. I've been on Alico's website and spent some time searching the net for "watherproof leather Alico Tahoes." and I've yet to find anything. Also unless I'm missing something, STP does not state that this boot comes in a waterproof leather option. I'm trying to get a call into STP to figure this out, but not having much luck.

    The top rear padded portion of the boot sticks out way too far and causes a lot of discomfort. I walked about 15-20 miles in the city in these boots and by the end of the day my achilles was so sore I had to walk very gingerly. Never experienced that from any boot in my life.

    • Answer I found these boots to run true to size and width. I usually find hiking boots to run small compared to work boots or hunting boots . Did order these 1/2 size larger than my work boot size. Room in the toe box was good.
      Answered on 1/10/2016 12:55:41 PM by Kel from Cleveland, oh
    • Answer Not at all. This boot runs true to size in length. About true in width (maybe just a hair wide), compared to American lasted boots. But it is high volume, (the foot area is tall from insole to top of boot). I had to get a thin gel insole to put under the insole. After making this adjustment they fit better than most boots I've owned. They broke in quickly and are extremely comfortable. These are 'old school" boots in construction, so they DO require some break in and don't have the same feel as newer (running shoe style boots). You will also have to seal the welt to achieve water tightness. It's worth yhe trouble.

    • Answer The Alico Tahoe boot is wider than the typical Euro boot but not as wide as a true 2 or 4E. The leather on most most boots can be stretched pretty easily but if your foot width exceeds the last width then you will feel like you are walking on the "edge" of the boot which is uncomfortable, or worse. My left foot fit and the boot felt fantastic. My right foot is abouut 4 and 7/8 across at its widest point which is wider than my left so I ultimately had to send them back which was disappointing as I liked everything about them and would have been a great hiker.

    • Answer I bought the wide fit & they were good fit, with my orthotics. Definitely wider than a Zamberlan or other Euro lasts I've tried.
      And I guess you can always return them if they don't fit!

    • Answer As a women I wear a men's size 7. These were as perfect a fit for me as I could ever hope to find. There is a good amount of room in the toe. The heels are roomy for me, but my foot does not slide forward. They are beautifully crafted boots.

    • Answer No, I normally wear 10.5 and I had to return them and get size 10. The width is normal.

    • Answer I believe that American boots size is bigger than Euro boots'. As an Oriental, I prefer Euro boots size because it fits on my feet. However, I don't think there are many different characteristics between American and Euro boots.

    • Answer According to our fit models this item is running true to size.
      Answered on 1/12/2016 5:12:31 PM by Product Specialist Greg from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer Yes, I also wear them in the city. We get a lot of rain in Baton Rouge and the Alico's are perfect for keeping feet dry and comfortable in any environment, from hiking paths to sidewalk puddles and small streams. I used to sell Fabiano, Asolo, Pivetta boots at Sierra Designs in the mid-70's and these are of equal quality, in both design and materials... I expect these boots to last at least 20 years before they need new soles...

    • Answer Sure. I wear them on desert sand and rock and on cement and asphalt pavement. If you wanted to keep them cleaned and polished, they'd be fine as good casual shoes with jeans or khakis. Very sturdy and strong yet not heavy. I love these boots. I wear 10 and 1/2 and either 10 and 1/2 or 11 work. My 11s are great. Great boot.

    • Answer It kind of depends if this is a technical or aesthetic question. As far as good looks and style goes, I would wear these boots anywhere in our town. But technically they are a stiff boot designed to give good foot and ankle support on sharp rocks and steeply angled sidehills. After I have done a long hike in these I am ready to change into my sneakers for a softer feel on smooth ground.

  • Question “Do these boots have a waterproof liner?”
    Asked on 1/1/2015 10:10:26 AM by Murat Sean from georgia
    • Answer Yes, they have what looks like GoreTex inside the boot, though it isn't labeled GoreTex. The leather is also extremely waterproof, but if you're going to get really gnarly wet then SnoSeal around the welt wouldn't be a bad idea. The tongue is attached to the boot on the sides all the way up to the top of the tongue (there's a term for this, but I forget at the moment), which will also prevent water from getting in. They're solid.

    • Answer These boots do have a liner but regardless of what claim they may make (I don't know if they claim waterproof) they will hold water out a while but are NOT WATERPROOF.

    • 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 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.

    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 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!!!
      Answered on 4/1/2014 8:03:23 AM by Pteryldactyl from Mendocino, Northern California
    • 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.
