This is my second pair of Alico Backcountry hiking boots. They fit perfectly and are comfortable right out of the box. I have never had a blister hiking in these boots. I have had some problems with my feet but in these boots, my feet feel great. They are protected and supported in ways that hel... Read More

    So, this has been a ten year journey to replace my Raichle hikers- and I am thrilled. I cannot tell you how many pairs of fine boots I have bought and returned.

    30 years ago I bought a pair of Raichle boots from EMS, put them on and was in heaven for 20 years of trekking. At 15 years, the soles cracked- EMS resoled but they were not quite the same. In the meantime, Raichle boots became impossible to find and I looked all over the US and elsewhere to find a replacement.

    When I saw these Alicos, I couldn't imagine they were the same boot, but they looked exactly like them. Well, after purchasing, they feel like they were built on the same last and with the same specs- only some minor materials differences.

    Notable attributes:
    Stiff sole and toebox.
    Leather breathable lining.
    Anatomical integrated tongue, no folds, no leaks.
    Rigid ankle support.
    Ankle bone and heel pockets.
    Sticky rubber lugs.
    Soft mid-height cuff.
    Slight rocker.

    I am a 7.5 M with toe bunions- so a difficult fit. When I first put these on I was fearful that I should have ordered an 8. Though because of the solid fit, I might have been ok to do so and wear heavier socks, after a few days wearing inside, the liner has moulded perfectly to my idiosyncracies, without issue and I have plenty of room for a heavy SmartWool sock.

    These are beautiful boots. The quality is excellent, as well as the price.

    These are surprisingly lightweight, yet sturdy, and they were comfortable straight out of the box. The leather is good quality, but as with all boots will need to be oiled/waterproofed. The only reason I'm giving 4 rather than 5 stars is because the first row of eyelets at the toe box are positioned right at the widest part of my foot, so I had a little discomfort at the eyelet area by the end of my first full day of wear. However, I believe once these are fully broken in that will subside, and people with narrow feet probably wouldn't have any issue with that at all. Overall a great pair of boots at a very reasonable price, and they have a cool, somewhat retro look, too!

    The boots I received do not have the Alico stamp on the side. The inserts say Alico-the boots could be anything. Are they even made in Italy? Nowhere on the boot does it say anything and the box just says Italy-not made in.The rubber toe rand-dinky as it is in the photo-is even less so on the boot. As a result (coupled with a less than burly leather) mine are gouged like a beaver mistook them for a log-after 5 day hikes in Yosemite with just one day of mild scrambling. Even a bit of the rubber chunked off. I can cover it in butvar but that is not something I should be dealing with this soon! The leather of the tongue and the area around the ankle on the inside is cracking. I do not see these as staying together for a year considering I have only used them day hiking maybe 8 times. Did I get a dud? Possible. I returned a pair because you could feel something hard under the right outer ball and under the left heel-like something was not put together right. These actually fit my feet like no boot does, and for the price of just over $100 I would be happy with 2 years of use.....but will I get that? They get a 5 for fit and a 3 for perceived durability. They lose a star for hints of these being seconds.

    Based on the description and other reviews, I expected these boots to be upper-end backpacking boots. When they arrived I was disappointed. The quality of materials was sub-par. The metal eyelets were roughly cut and seemed to be cheaply made--I thought they would break or rust quickly. The leather also felt plastic-y and stiff. I have a large foot and have found that more expensive brands often fit better (more attention to designing for the specific shape of a long women's foot), but these were wide, tall, and fit as poorly as most cheap brands. I can't recommend them.

  • Question “How stiff are the soles? I need a very stiff, backpacking type boot for my foot.
    Asked on 3/2/2015 6:36:35 PM by Andrea from VT
    • Answer Yes, these boots offer an extreme level of structure and support while being extremely comfortable.The sole measure between 1 and 1.5 inches depending on the area and is made of a very heavy duty and durable rubber. I love my pair!!!

    • Answer I would rate these very stiff. It allowed for a secure grip while practicing various rock scrambling techniques where having a stiff sole was a requirement

    • Answer These boots are pretty stiff and have a nylon shank for support.
