  • Good mix of causal and hiking
    Reviewed by Fuzz from Oregon on Thursday, August 23, 2018
    These do not have vibram outsoles. More on that in a bit.

    I bought these for a trip to Iceland, looking for a boot that was trail worthy but also didn't look out of place on the streets. I find these fairly stylish as far as hiking boots go, very simple and plain. While hardly dress boots, they look significantly less goofy than wearing a pair of Keens with khakis. I picked these for the price and more importantly, fit; they come in wide. Out of the box, the wides were wide enough, unlike, say, Asolo where the wides often aren't very wide. With a slightly softer rubber outer sole and single molded leather, they don't require much in the way of breaking in. These are probably the most comfortable hiking I own, out of 6 or so assorted pairs of random brands (Columbia, AKU, Sorrel, etc).

    First off, the insoles are garbage. The left outer insole raised too much making them uncomfortable. This worried me that one insole would differ than the others but after a close inspecting, the boots themselves didn't reveal any other such inconsistencies. I yanked them and stuck soles from a pair of Columbia shoes I had which drastically fixed the comfort.

    How did do they perform? Reasonably well, the tread worked quite well on steep muddy off trail slogs in an Icelandic downpour, but waterproof these are not. After trudging around in wet grass and the rain for several miles, my feet were damp (albeit not soaked), the most significant sticking point is the edges around the leather and sole. So if you're hiking where freestanding water isn't a problem, these will do fine. The somewhat soft sole may be a problem for some. I didn't mind it but I tend to do a lot of hiking low top trail runners, carrying generally just a daypack.

    The outer sole sticks out enough to prevent toe stubs but approach shoes these are not. I also ended up renting boots for glacier hiking with crampons since the soles weren't very stiff after the guide recommended it but I've used crampons with similar boots but decided to error the side of caution. I also wouldn't use these as approach shoes for bouldering (which shouldn't surprise anyone), but they did fine for my light bouldering.

    As someone who detests overly insulated shoes in all but freezing weather (my feet get hot easily), these were perfect for 45F-55F and will do nicely for the relatively mild PNW winters.

    Lastly, I'm slightly concerned how well these are made, the leather seems somewhat cheap, but it is also single molded, (no stitching). At $120, this is to be expected. The leather is slightly rough, but they cleaned relatively, a damp cloth removed mud easily.

    Very comfortable
    Relatively light (especially for leather)
    Good tread on wet/muddy/slippery surfaces
    Decent styling - single mold
    Nice mix of streetwear / hiking
    Not very stiff sole

    Insoles are trash (I had to replace mine)
    Not waterproof
    Price reflects quality
    Not very stiff sole
    Mislabeled, not a vibram outsole
  • A lot of boot for the money!
    Reviewed by Johns Creek Nole from Georgia on Wednesday, August 1, 2018
    In a day when ultra-lightweight, synthetic, essentially disposable hiking shoes are all the rage, it is refreshing to know that there are still a few European and US leather hiking boots around that are constructed the traditional way: one piece leather outer, soft leather collar and liner, stitched-on Vibram soles. No, these are not fully leather lined. They do not have all of the features of high end offerings from Zamberlan, Meindl, Limmer and a few others. They may not last decades like those boots often do. They may not even be equal to the Merrill Wilderness boots that look just like them (and which Alico may make for Merrill). But neither do these boots cost $400-$800 like the others. $250 is a reasonable price for an Italian boot of this quality; $125 on sale is an incredibly good deal. A few reviewers say they had bad experiences with earlier versions. But at this point in the production run and with this many great reviews, I felt I had to take the chance!
  • regarding fit
    Reviewed by bill from California on Tuesday, July 31, 2018
    I own a lot of backpacking/hiking boots. In a running shoe I am anywhere from an 11.5 to a 12. In a bicycle shoe, I am about a 10.75. In a cleated baseball shoe I am an 11. In the Bellunos a size 12 with a liner sock and a thick sock are perfect. I think an 11.5 would necessitate going to a thinner sock but would be workable. A size 11 would fit with only a liner sock. This is consistent with my other Alico boots. The Belluno is flexible enough that minimal break in will be necessary. I think it is plenty sturdy for backpacking, especially when you consider what other people are wearing these days. I did put a new innersole in, I used a Sole.

    Reviewed by $ean from Illinois on Tuesday, July 24, 2018
    I purchased the grey. Boots do not have a Vibram sole as described. Boots do not have a leather lined collar or tongue as described. Fit feels good for my 10.5 medium width. I just wish the description was truthful.
  • Great boots - Nubuck and Split Leather are different
    Reviewed by EO from North Carolina on Monday, June 18, 2018
    I originally bought the split leather version of this boot, but returned it for the Greased Nubuck. The nubuck version has a leather lining as well, which is nice. Both are great boots--I just prefer the leather lining.

    Regarding sizing, fit is pretty standard. I wear a 10 in most brands (9 in Red Wings) and the 10 fits me very well.

  • “how does sizing run- sometimes I'm an 11 1/2, sometimes a 12... what should I order for the ALico Belluno?”
    Asked by sam woid from new york on 4/23/2017 12:08:31 PM
    • Boot size runs a solid 1/2 size large. I am ALWAYS a size 8.5 no matter what. I have flat wide feet. Nonetheless, I decided to order size 8 instead (1/2 size smaller) - the boots fit perfectly and are very comfortable..
      Answered on 4/23/2017 1:31:34 PM by scrittiwolf from Vermont
    • Sounds like you live with the same dilemma as I, size-wise. My concern with these boots stems from the lacing system, apparently most folks who wear actual hiking boots like the ability to snug or loosen the boot further down toward the toes...whereas I prefer a wider consistent toebox(and make my adjustments with insoles and/or sock thickness.
      The problem I had with the Alico boots I tried was where the toe-box flexed( it bore downward and pinched the top of my toes) it was not a size issue. Strictly on size, I felt the 11 1/2 was a fit(as most seem to agree that the Alicos run a bit large).
      I would ad, I just "walk in the woods" as opposed to mountaineering, therefore I go for comfort and ankle protection(from sprains and scuffs) as opposed to concerns about climbing traction and such. Longevity has it's place. Hike safe.

    • USA ... 12 2E, I believe this is equivalent to a 45 or 46 in Euro sizes. This is the size I usually buy in boots. Having said that, my left foot is perhaps 1/2 size larger than the right and so I must defer to it ... so, it compelled me to write this poem:
      (Your Feet ... My Feet)
      Feet that ain't a pair/ What was he doin' when he went to work down there/ 11 1/2 fits the right, on the left it's kinda tight/ Get the 12 you say/ Then the right one floats around all day/ Ya kin wear thick socks, take that route/ But it don't work in a Sunday suit/ With them skinny shoes ya gotta wear/ What was he thinkin' when he went to work down there?

    • US sized. 9 Belluno fits me well though I usually wear a 9.5 in US sizes. I haven't seen any Belluno's in European size which for me would be a 43 probably.

      Because they are somewhat large for the US size, I suppose it's possible these were originally UK/British sizes where I fit an 8.5/9. There's no other indication of that though so I assume these are US sizes that run half size large, which is not uncommon for Alico US sizing.

  • “What type of leather is used on the Belluno boots as opposed to the Tahoes? I know they are lighter, but I supposed I'm curious as to how they were able to save weight? Is it through thinner leather or leather that is not full grain? Thinner soles? Less overall durability?”
    Asked by Patrick from Texas on 1/28/2017 11:45:02 AM
    • When I compared the two, the Tahoe was larger. The leather appears to be the same but the dimensions are different.
      Answered on 1/28/2017 11:56:06 AM by Merlin from California
    • I'll try to answer based on the Belluno boots that I purchased - the leather is thick and not at all thin. The boots are heavy and comparable to my top-notch Asolo leather hikers. I don't think these Belluno boots are made from the very best full grain leather - my guess is they are constructed from one or two pieces of very high quality nubuck leather (they are most definitely not suede). The leather is very durable, even supple - the feel and heft of the boot is high quality - you'll be pleasantly surprised. The heels are Vibram and are very solid as well. The stitching is minimal and strong. These Belluno boots are handsome, somewhat dressy and would look great for the office - I wear them casually with jeans. They'd be fine for any mountainous hike too, but I'm sticking with my tried and true Asolos for that.

    • I have the Belluno and the Tahoe--my Tahoes are from 10-15 years ago so I have to assume they're made the same as the ones you're comparing. I haven't weighed them but I bet the Bellunos are lighter as reported. From 10 feet away, the Bellunos and Tahoes might look the same but up close, everything about the Bellunos is trimmer, smaller, a bit sleeker: The width of the stitched area of sole around the perimeter is a few mm wider in the Tahoes which is noticeable up close, and Tahoes are overall a little bulkier all around compared to the Bellunos. The Belluno Vibram sole is thinner and trimmer in a way that made me doubt durability but I've been wearing them in summer and hard winter conditions and have not seen any wear--the black vibram on the dark brown Bellunos seem to wear as well as all my other vibram soles. The vibram sole on the mid-brown rough out Belluno is sort of half translucent (I've seen them up close in the store) and is not the same rubber composition as the black vibram. I also have the light brown Belluno with the light color translucent vibram sole and that one wears well too so I wouldn't be pessimistic about the non-black vibram. That trimmer vibram on all Bellunos will account for some of the weight difference.
      The Belluno leather is tops. I got these for work--my work is white collar city work but includes hiking about in the mountains so the Belluno looked like the rare thing that can go back and forth easily between the two. In snow and ice, the leather holds up, is really waterproof out of the box, and looks as high a quality as any boot leather I've used in 40 years of wearing alpine boots from Italy and Austria. I don't wear the Tahoes anymore because they seem clunky for this compared to Bellunos. I got more than one pair of Bellunos because they're that good. Despite the lightness (for a welted boot) they're supportive enough I wouldn't hesitate to use them for mid-weight loaded backpacking if I didn't have other boots for this.

    • Less overall durability is the best answer, particularly in the sole. I do not climb mountains, rather walk the woods; the Belluno is more the type boot I'd lean to, more for careful walking in town and country. The issue with any boot I've purchased centers around the questions of whether one can use the insole provided, what type socks can fit inside, and what size I need to accommodate these concerns. I have given away nearly as many boots as I have kept over the years, the right footwear is crucial to one's ability to stay active in the outdoors ... and I am not the daredevil type, longevity is massively more important to me than thrill-seeking. Note: Sometimes you need to buy, try, and let fly before you're sure its the right one, this is the downfall of mail order, however I've given away several in-store purchased boots, as well. At least with STP, returns are easy and deals are very good.

    • The leather is not full grain but the soles are just as durable. The belluno boots are better than the tahoes as I own a pair of those boots also. The are much warmer and more water resistant. Not %100 waterproof. I also own a pair of mountaineering boots that are designed for ice climbing and those boots are %100 waterproof. But for all around hiking I would definitely prefer the Bellunos over the Tahoes.

    • Not sure about the "type of leather" but I will say these boots are durable and lighter than any other hiking boot I have ever owned, and I have owned quite a few. I am very fussy about my footwear, and have purchased two pair of these boots. Leather is very strong, not thin, and the foot bed in extremely durable so no complaints there. It is definitely leather, and tough, as I use these boots out on my farm also.
