Toughest and most comfortable boots I've owned in 35 years of heavy duty boot abuse. Bought a pair nearly 9 years ago and they are still going strong. Unfortunately I did not look after them as well they looked after me, and allowed the lining leather to dry out and crack- my fault. Beyond that, not... Read More

    I've had a similar type of boot for 25 years, unfortunately they could'nt go any further. So, I opted for Alico New Guide boot and I'm not disappointed. They are exactly what I wanted. Perfect fit for my shoe size with some more toe room than my previous boots. I took them for a 3 miles uphill hike as soon as I got them and by the end no blisters or sore toes. Of course, if you have never had stiff boots like this it will take quite a bit of adaptation. They provide the right protection for your feet and excellent traction for mountain hikes and climbs.

    I remember being high on the direct variation of Dingus-Hol Shaft Spire, in the West Eastern Vast Difference Range. These hiking boots were front pointing my way to the next belay, a butterblade hammered in partway through a diagonal fracture smear. My toes stayed warm as I clipped a bomber carabinkle in and put my partner on the saftey line. I shouted down that the Alico New Guide Mountaineering Hiking Boots For Men would help us on our journey to the summit shaft spire. Our safety belts tight, we continued with the ascent until an indirectional-hook popped off and the whole team skiddered dowen sideways over an arete. The Alico New Guide Mountaineering Hiking Boots For Men gave us the friction cordalette we needed for the technical slab overhanging pressure moves between belays in order to get back on the main Dingus-Hol. I unclipped my clampons near the tip, and called down to my partner for more redundancy rings before we rapeled to the base and snuggled till the morning came.

    Working as a land surveyor in the Rocky Mountain region places a lot of demand on a pair of boots. Anything from steep mountainsides to swampy river bottoms may be encountered during a day of work. These boots are capable of handling just about anything I have thrown at them. I love the fact that they are leather with a leather lined interior, coupled with a pair of wool socks and you have happy blister free feet. Not sure why most boot manufacturers feel the need to only offer boots that are lined with gore-tex. Might as well wrap your feet in a pair of plastic trash bags on a hot summers day. As others have said this is a stout boot, fast and light does not apply to this boot. Expect a bit of a break-in period, what else would you expect from 3mm top grade leather? Treated with Obenauf's LP and you can rest easy that your made in Italy, red laced, retro mountaineering kicks are going to be walking around long after you are.

    The number of lined, non Gore-Tex welted boots is a pretty short list unless you're willing to pay for custom boots and wait a year or three. These appeared to be closest to what I needed. These boots are very different than the summits, of which I have two pair. Much stiffer, one piece uppers, stiffer soles. However, the thin leather flap sealing the tongue to the boot body was coming unstitched after wearing them three times for short durations to break them in.

    The boots were desperately dry out of the box, and as I'm not one to wet a new boot for break in, I treated them lightly with Obenaufs liquid.

    The toe boxes broke in nicely but the soles and uppers are not in synch and are still so stiff that heel lift is a problem. I have to wrap the very substantial laces around the boot to squeeze the shaft of the boot above the heel. This forces them to flex and sped break in.

    When lacing the boot, the lower portion is designed to fold with two equal flaps as shown in the photo's. Not going to happen. All of the material goes to one side so you have no roll on one side and all of the roll on the other. This forces that portion of the upper off center. When that happens, it drags the tongue with it, so one must struggle to center the tongue especially during break in. It also stretches the web of thin material all the way out on one side of the tongue which will not help longevity. It's all caused by the tongue being stitched in differently in each boot. Maybe they were seconds.

    Don't get me wrong, they are up to the job I'm using them for. They address all the shortcomings of the summits and then some, but they are far from perfect. They will undoubtedly outlast the Summit's, but that's really not saying much.

    About the Summits. I bought two pair on the same day, same store. It's like they were from two different companies. One pair broke in immediately, lost all of it's body and shape and is little more than a shapeless work boot with no stiffness anywhere. The other took extensive break in and has kept its shape for the most part. I was hoping to alternate them to get the best out of them, but they fit so differently that wasn't practical.

    I work in dry, rough country everyday, and the Summits are not up to it. Sole not stiff enough for rocky terrain, not stiff enough for side hilling, and not thick enough for protection in the toe box. The Guides are definitely up to it, despite my nitpicking.

    After seeing the indifferent attention to detail on every pair of boots I've purchased, this is likely my last pair of Alicos. I'll spend twice as much and get some European (not U.S.) Meindl Super Perfekt's.
