The Italian Made Alico Backcountry Hiking Boots - Exceptional Quality, Comfort & Value
Reviewed by Ubbikin from Ca. on Monday, January 27, 2014
These Alico Backcountry Hiking Boots are hands down the best made, most comfortable out of the box and no break in required boots I have owned to date.

I work for my city Parks & Recreation Department and these boots were put to the test immediately upon receipt. As a Maintenance Technician I pe... Read More

  • Excellent Old School Hiking Boot
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Vitaprime from Reno on Friday, May 18, 2018
    These are an excellent old school, full leather hiking boot. I hike in the Sierra's outside of Reno. Much of the elevation gain is on hard pan with loose rock. The thick Vibram sole (there is no substitute for Vibram) provides excellent protection from impact and abrasions. These are heavier than the lighter hiking boots ( I have Merrill and Keen) and aren't as pure waterproof (I'd call these highly water resistant) but are an excellent all around boot. Provides excellent toe protection. As with most Euro boots, these tend to run narrow. I ended up a half size long and a wide size and they fit perfect. Bought mine on clearance @ $ 109.00 but are easily worth at least $ 150.00. I see at least another couple of pairs of Alicos in my future.
  • Alicia: Best Mountain/Hiking Boots Hands Down
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by SemperFi_Patriot from Georgia on Sunday, May 13, 2018
    This is now my third purchase of Alico Boots. I assure you that there is not another brand that compares. Now... know that you will pay more, because they are high quality leather and materials, Italian designed and manufactured. If you are fortunate and can afford even the regular Sierra Trading price, then buy them. They sell elsewhere for much higher prices. I have taken my chances and waited until a clearance price is posted. But, you really do take a leap of faith your size will be available when they go on clearance. A purchase of any style Alico boot is well worth it.
  • Awesome boot
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by southcape from Wilmington, nc on Tuesday, May 8, 2018
    These are very high quality boots. Stiff at first, however quickly break in to become an amazing work boots. Fit half size smaller then normal. You can tell as soon as you pick these boots up they are truly a higher level quality then most.
  • Seemed super sturdy

    Wish the boots would have fit. They were well built and seemed like they would have lasted for years.
  • Tough Boots! Maybe Tougher than me!!
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by J.Kaverie from Connecticut on Friday, February 9, 2018
    These look & feel like old school hiking boots. In that light there are a couple of things I had forgotten about traditional leather hiking boots. The first is the squeaks & creaks and the second is the break in period. I have two coats of leather conditioner and 14 miles of hiking built up two miles at a time and still feels like there's quite a way to go before I would feel comfortable about taking these out on a 4+ mile hike. I replaced the inner soles after the first hike and so far the laces have held up.
