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

    just a great hiking boot made in the old style! It's like going back to 1974 and my" first real hiking boots" from the old co-op store . best made boot for the dollar,

    These are well made boots but have a crucial design flaw - the inside heel stitching protrudes and causes blisters. I just got back from a 20 mile backpacking trip that was excruciating thanks to these. And yes, they've were broken in for over a year.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Corey the Farmer from Virginia on Monday, August 10, 2015
    These are gorgeous boots! The fit is about as true as a boot can be for me. I did order a size up on a hunch from reviews. Fit so perfect. Truly happy to find such a well made boot of real leather. And yes there is a pretty good break-in time. Could take months, but I doubt I will find more comfort and support in any other boot. ~ For those interested, this is a true hikers boot. The sole is plenty stift to accomodate the weight of a pack. I use them around the farm as I do alot of heavey lifting and building. Firewood, Stone, Lumber. Works great for me. My other boots are Chippewa. Recently got a waterproof pair of Hanwag's. Also an excellent hiker!

    I had the Alico Summit hiking boots through the Sierra. A little heavy, but good for long-distance hiking. So again, this time purchasing the AlicoTahoe were used for the summer climbing was too good hiking boots. Alico Tahoe using this result, I recommend.Thank you so much Sierra.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jim the Hobart-Hobbit from Tasmania, Australia on Thursday, July 23, 2015
    After a fruitless search across Australia for old-school hikers - one piece leather, welted soles and the deliberate absence of Gore-sweat-tex - I was thrilled to discover the Alico boot range. After a bit of a read through past reviews, I plumped for the Tahoe boots.

    The price was good, even with added shipping. But at the last minute I decided I needed a size change (10 to 10.5 - just to be a sure). The boots hadn't shipped and the changeover was an easy online chat away. No problem. Gotta love American customer service!

    The boots arrived in just a few days - earlier than expected. And they haven't disappointed. In fact they're great. I love them. They look better in the flesh (well-formed stitched leather) than the photos suggest. Clearly some timeless design skills have gone into these.

    Wore them around the house for a couple of days to soften them up. Then gradually broke them in. Now they're happily nestling my feet - even fitting my orthotics, with comfort. I've yet to do a major hike. But am very pleased with the boots around town. Perfect for our Tasmanian winter (not too hot; not too cold!).

    The only change for me was to dump the original laces. They're ok, but a bit too stretchy. I replaced them with a set of Tobby red 160cm round laces. Not quite the iconic Danner look I would've liked - but it would cost me $65 to import some Danner 63's!

    The Tahoe look great with the red rounds. I'm hoping these will last for a couple of decades.

    PS If any of you lovely American folk feel like sending a set of Danner 63 red or green rounds Down Under to really complete this Tasmanian bushwalker's dream boot, please let me know! It surely can be done for less than $65...

    • 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.

    • Answer For the Tahoe boots, there's no difference except sizing - same materials, same design... Great boots, extremely well-made.

  • 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.
      Answered on 1/1/2015 10:28:05 AM by Frank Beta from Northern California
    • 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 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.

    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!!!
      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.
