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 just received my Alico Tahoe hiking boots from Sierra Trading Post and they are beautiful and seem to be very well constructed.

    I bought these boots after having a discussion with an orthopedic surgeon friend about trying to heal my relapsing plantar fasciitis which causes me considerable nausea inducing pain and anguish. He suggested I look into finding a well made old school Norwegian welt stitched sole hiking boot which will conform to my feet as they break in. I started my research about a month ago, and examined boots from my local outdoor sporting goods store, read every review I could find. I looked at everything from Danner, Limmer, Vasque, Zamberlan and even a few obscure brands that were way out of my price range.

    Years ago as a young photojournalist working in the mid-west, before my damaged feet started taking their toll on my recreational activities I wore a pair of Vasque Sundowners until they literally rotted off my feet after roughly 12-years of daily use and two resoles. Those boots were comfortable and well made unlike the newest version which seemed flimsy and poorly constructed. Since then I've tried a succession boots from various manufacturers: Asolo, Merrell and Danner. The last being the military version of Danner's Crater Rim which I found extremely uncomfortable.

    The Tahoe for the price was too good to pass up, and I'm glad I didn't. The boots are as comfortable out of the box as my old Sundowners, the leather is thick and supportive yet supple. Though these boots are not leather lined the fabric lining used seems to keep my dogs dry. I'm a bit worried about the thin outsoles, but these boots can be resoled at my local shoe repair shop with a thicker Vibram sole when that time comes. Right now my new Alico Tahoes are a bit stiff, but they will break in given time and care.

    I'm very pleased with quality of my new boots, and hope to get many years of service from them.

    Let's face it, buying boots online is a little spooky. But when you deal with STP, it is always good, even if you have to do an exchange. The Alico Tahoes showed up last week, and wow, these are the real deal. I'm just tired of replacing boots every couple years-- these look like they will last a very long time. The leather is gorgeous, the stitching superb, and the fit seems very good. I usually vary between a 10.5-11. I got these in a 10.5 and they are just right (lots of room in the toe box and a snug fitting heal). I'm taking them up Mt. Chocorua this week, so we'll see how they do on the trail. I get a sense these might take a bit to break in, but that's OK. I'm in it for the long haul with these boots.

    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.

    • 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.
