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 Roger De Haan from Bitterroot Valley, Montana on Monday, June 1, 2015
    This is the second pair of these boots I have bought. The first ones have taken me on hundreds of miles of trails in western Montana and Wyoming, and are the only boots I would wear for 10 to 15 days at a time backpacking on longer trails. They are comfortable (once broken in) and durable with one small exception. The leather that joins the heavy duty tongue to the heavy boot leather is a very thin and soft glove type leather. This thin connector tapers from maybe 1/2 in. to 2 inches wide at the top, and has developed several holes from wear. In heavy rain, the rain runs off my rain pants down onto the boots and into these holes. The result is instant wet feet when the rain starts, or walking through wet brush. I have now patched the holes in my old boots with Lexell flexible silicone adhesive and a piece of fabric, and I intend to get a few more hundred miles. I will save the new ones for the future but am considering a pre-treatment of the weaker leather to avoid the holes. Wish the manufacturer would correct this one small flaw in an otherwise great boot.

    About as good a boot as you can buy for the money (or even twice as much). Maybe a 1/4 size bigger than a normal 11, but it works beautifully. Top quality shoe in every way.

    Excellent boot. I have a pair of the Alico Summit boots and bought these to wear when I don't need such a heavy boot. Be aware that these are not No-break-in-tennie-style-fashion boots, though they are good looking enough to wear with my service uniform. They will take a while to form to your foot, but when they do you'll sleep in them. Very high quality leather.

    Sierra Trading is where I got the boots. I get their sale coupons/pricing by email. The Vasque hiking boot (handmade by Italian cobblers) that I LOVED, wore and hiked in all over the world for many years appears to be the same design as the Backcountry boot below...but the Vibraum sole finally came half off when I was hiking in snow and ice...not good....but it did happen after MANY years of wear.

    I recently purchased the Alico Tahoe when it was on sale for $119.00. Stitched sole, handmade in Italy by Italian cobblers, amazing leather, weatherproof...much like the original Vasque boot I had but the Tahoe is probably a better quality....the Vasque replacement boot Vasque is selling now is a POOR copy made in China....no craftsmanship in the Vasque boot!

    I always wear a thin undersock and a THICK hiking sock to protect my feet....no blisters! Break in has been nonexistent...been on three hikes on the newbies and my feet feel great. The hikes are easier and I am surefooted on tough trails. Of course, part of the "magic" is the lacing technique. I did not seriously consider the Alico Summit....too heavy and too high for me. The ankle support on either the Backcountry boot or the Tahoe are plenty for the conditions I trek in. I sized up half a size to accommodate the THICK socks I wear over a pair of thin liner socks....even in July and August. A "just in case" is to keep the Johnson and Johnson Band-Aid Advanced healing Blister Ampoules with you....they will keep a blister from bursting if put on immediately....a lesson I have learned since I have had to wear the cheap Vasque replacements...which gave me blisters.... until my amazing new Alcio Tahoe's recently entered my life!

    Everyone is different....from body to feet to how and when they hike/trek and what footwear is appropriate in their unique situations....these work for me.

    In 1983, I bought a pair of Redwing hiking boots. I wore those boots for the next ten years. When they finally wore out, I went to Redwing to buy another just like the last. Unfortunately, I learned that the first had been made in Italy and that Redwing had since shifted its sourcing to China. The replacement boots lasted about two years. The next set started showing flaws after only six months. After a series of disappointing experiences, I did my homework and searched for Italian boots. I found and bought these Alico's. They look and feel astonishingly similar to that pair I remember from decades ago. Even more surprising, the price is is competitive with the comparable model that Redwing sources from China. They now show as closeout. Buy them while you can still get them.

  • 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!

    • 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.
      Answered on 9/7/2014 9:27:16 AM by Tucson Kid from Tucson
    • 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.
