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

    I don't need to repeat the other positive reviews here. These are highly rated for good reason.

    That being said, there are several things you should be aware of:
    1)Cheap insoles. I went ahead with a pair of Superfeet Green insoles. These boots are now more comfortable for the long haul.
    2)Cheap laces. These tore after 4 months of semi-regular use. I now use 3mm paracord.
    3)Waterproofing. These are suitable for wet conditions, but only if you treat them with Obenaufs or Sno Seal.

    These boots aren't perfect out of the box, but with some additional effort they will become your favorite pair of footwear

    Really well put together. Should last a long time. Yet not too heavy.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Yellowiron from Idaho on Tuesday, August 16, 2016
    There are a lot of excellent, detailed reviews pertaining to Alico products
    so I won't provide a detailed review.

    This high quality product is hand made
    so expect minor variances in each size. Try two or three pairs in your size
    before making a choice if possible. You will find that they all fit but one pair
    will fit like a glove. Can't go wrong with Alico.

    The Alico hiking boot with Viberam soles have saved my life and many of my back packing trips. I have not slipped into a river because the Viberam sole holds onto wet rocks, any other shoe / boot would never grip like this boot will. I have own about 4 pair's they last 3 to 5 years of heavy use and I live in my boots. If the leather is still good, not worn out the soles are (make sure you don't get molded soles look for stitching) replaceable at any shoe maker shop retailing at $50 for the soles plus labor. Generally the replacement soles have more tread than the originals. The Alico hiking boots are great Italian made leather hiking boots. The Maserati or Lamborghini of Hiking Boots in my option

    As a long time hiker/backpacker in our Sierras, Rockies, and a few trips to the Sawtooths, I highly value good boots. I usually get 1-2 years out of my boots before the soles wear out and almost every boot made now is NOT re-sole-able. When I needed new boots for this years adventures, I decided to see what the excellent reviews were all about with these Alico boots. Break in was almost not needed as I wore them in my neighborhood park for less than 10 miles and they fit like a glove. On the trail, traction, comfort, and breath ability is excellent. After a few hikes, I treated them with a leather treatment and it gave them added waterproofing..I can stand in a creek and they are still dry! Fit: I wear size 12 wide in most boots/shoes, but went with the 12D and fit was perfect. If you have very wide feet, go with the wide size. Love the larger toe box too! All told, these are the most comfortable boots I've ever used and I've probably used 10 pair of high quality boots in the past 30 years. If you want great traction, ankle support and comfort, these are your boots. Thank you Alico for making these high quality boots affordable.

    • Answer The Alico boots are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. I don't have a wide foot but the regular width has adequate toe room. You can lace them to your fit. I replace the factory insole with a more supportive one. Extra cost but greatly improves comfort. STP usually has these in stock.

    • Answer Cool in style, tough build, unless they fit perfect, tough on the feet, more narrow than USA wide. Tends to be narrow at heel and toe for me, (US 10 wide), I did not fit the Alico 10W, my thick wide foot was crunched in the toe box as I have a curvy foot. These are traditional in cushion (thin cush), for me if I was going to walk 5 hours, the Asolo Neutron 10W is my go to boot.
      I have worn the Asolo boots all day and did not want to take them off, 10W works for my heavy duty foot.
      The Tahoe lights have a wider toe box than the Tahoe and I can wear them all day, I would not try them on a hard hike due to light cushion. I still love the traditional style for leather rugged boots, but when technology comes into play, I prefer to have my feet work smart, not hard.

    • Answer I have a wide forefoot and low arches, and a normal heel. This makes buying shoes for me tricky because standard size can be too narrow in the toe but fine in the heel, and a wide can be a good fit in the toe but then too wide in the heel. These boots fit me very well. I have had no issues with slippage anywhere with a good fit in the toe and heel. There is very little shock absorbing material built into the boot. The boot is great quality but the sole inserts from Alico are low quality. I put a pair of Superfeet blue insoles in mine and they feel great. I broke them in with a 3 hour hike in Colorado through all conditions - snow, rocks, gravel, mud, water - and they felt great. They do require a break in but they were a pretty good fit out of the box. I think for the features and construction quality, these boots are great for the price. Hope this helps.

    • Answer Fiona, I just gave these guys their first test-- an 8 mile hike up and down Mt. Mooselauke. Comfort?? Definitely not under the balls of your feet-- pretty solid. The fit for me was fine, but I don't wear a wide. I will say the toe box on the mediums is quite big. I'm thinking of replacing the original insole with something more substantial, and I'm pretty sure the toe box will still have plenty of room.

    • 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.
