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

    Overall I would give them 4.5 stars. I bought these boots in Dec of 2009 after being tired of other hiking boots wearing out in a couple of years and then having to throw them out. They are very well made and do an excellent job of protecting your feet and have good ankle support. Right now the middle lugs on the front of the sole are almost worn down but I still have good grip from the outer lugs. I anticipate I will get them resoled next year. I think they are true to size since I wear a 10 D dress shoe and I bought 10 1/2 M in the boots and they fit fine with a midweight hiking sock. They do take time to break in so don't expect to buy them and go on a long hike a couple of weeks later. I wear them almost daily Nov to April to go for walks or snowshoeing and then whenever I hike during the other months. They are not waterproof but do keep out water well with treating the leather 2-3 times a year. The only time I have had them soak through is on a spring backpacking trip when I was walking through slush and puddles for 2 days. I see many boot now have Gore Tex liners to keep them waterproof but I have found that the "breathability" is all marketing hype. I have had Gore Tex and Precip raincoats and have worn them over just a base layer in the rain when it is just above freezing with a hat so the hood could be down and zipper at least halfway down and within 15-20 min I am half soaked with sweat just walking much less hiking or something more vigorous. The provided insoles are not good so you will need to replace those. I have found Sof Sole Airr insoles work well for me. The only issue I have had is the cloth liner has wore away in the heel area, although that hasn't effected the function of the boots. I just bought a pair of Alico Summit boots and they are very well made given the lining on the Summit's is leather and likely to be more durable if you can afford the extra cost you might want to consider those. There is a 1 lb difference in listed weight between the Tahoe and the Summit but I can't feel much difference. It also looks like with the 3rd lacing hook on the Summit's you will be better able to lock you foot in to keep it from sliding forward when going downhill although I haven't been able to test that yet.

    These boots are the anti-future moon boots. Sturdy, heavy and well crafted. Welted all leather for under 200! They don't require much break-in. I went on a weekend hiking trip and they did great. Only thing is change the laces asap, they are nylon and super slippery.

    Alico Tahoe Hiking Boots for Men are made with the best materials with heavy-duty construction, and look like they will hold up for years if properly cared for. These are the reasons why I decided to buy them. They are some of my favorite boots because of this; my other favorites are the Alico Backpacking Boots. I use the hiking boots as my general going-around boots. They aren't waterproof; however, you can use saddle soap or some other natural conditioner on a regular basis to make them water-resistant. Just make sure you apply the conditioner in the seams, stitching and in the sole binding. These boots should last you for years.

    Very nice leather and build, tried the 10W but my toes need a wider toe box, these are not as roomy like the Summit's or Summit lights, the boots that were shipped are shaped more like the other single photo in searches and have a slightly narrow shape.
    It would have been great had they fit, it is a very nice boot, and would likely fit most people.

    Great fit; minimal break-in required

    • 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 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 Although these boots do not have liners, with the proper waterproofing I have found that they function at an elite level for general outdoor activities.

    • Answer No they do not. I keep mine well oiled. A product called snow seal. Stomping through mud and puddles the day ends with dry feet. Best straight up leather boots around.

    • 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!
