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

    These are, in my opinion, the best old style hiking boots on the market for the money. To get something comparable you would have to spend around $400, which is what these are normally priced at, according to STP. Some reviewers have said that this is too much boot for daily use; I disagree. I'm 6' and 195 lbs and this is a perfect boot for me. They are heavy for sure, but this is what I was looking for. It's true that it takes a couple of months to break these in (and this can be a bit painful), but once you do then I've found that they are a good and very versatile boot. If you need a solid, heavy duty boot that offers lots of support then you can't go wrong here.

    I've only had them for a week so not much to report. They appear to be well built. Break-in period is going to be slow. I'll report back once they're in full use. It would have been nice to get better care instructions for the specialty leather.

    So after a long research campaign I finally decided to pull the trigger on this pair of boots as they seemed to be everything I was looking for. So the first impression out of the box is that they are HEAVY! I cannot express this enough! Unless you happen to have a 6lb. Pair of boots laying around, these will feel quite different to you. The next thing you'll notice is the overall durability of these tanks. The leather is very thick and seems quality. The Norwegian welt seems very sturdy and of course the thick vibram montagna sole. No doubt these boots would withstand years of abuse after a considerable break in period of course. Out of the box these boots are extremely uncomfortable, and ive owned several heavy leather boots but these take the cake for stiffness, something I initially attributed the the thickness of the leather. So every evening I woukd wear these around the house in hopes to break them in as the absolutely killed my feet after just minutes, then one evening upon setting the boots on the table, I noticed the huge problem. The soles of these boots are twisted in a mnnsr that the inside of the heel and outside of the toes are lifted off the table and rock back and forth diagonally. I'm taking a good 3/4" gap here. So what this does is pull you heels inwards when you step down and pull you forefoot outwards when lifting off from a step. Overall creating a very very uncomfortable stride. After investigating this extensively, I have come to the conclusion that this issue cannot be resolved except for possibly grinding down the soles to give a flat surface, thus loosing tread. I even emailed Alico about this issue because it is mirrored in both boots. They never responded. Therefore I am forced to return these boots as this is such a huge mistake on an overall seemingly quality pair of boots, hence my still 3 star rating. Maybe I got a lemon, maybe not, but if your willing to take a brand new $200 pair of boots to a belt sander to make them bearable to walk in, expecting to get 5+ years out of them..... Then these ARE the boots for you!!

    Run try to size, I wear a 9.5 bought a 10 nice fit. The leather is starting to loosen up after wearing around my office daily for a couple weeks. They appear to be very well made and will work perfect for hiking and light mountaineering in the Sierra Nevadas. Looking forward to getting them out soon. Be patient, they will break in.

    As a utility worker, I am constantly on my feet. I climb telephone/power poles on a regular basis. But also spend time on the ground... And I must say these have been a great all around boot for my needs! They have been pretty tough to break in, but good boots always are. I realize these aren't made specifically for my application, but I was looking for a durable low quarter boot that was well built, and had a good shank. These boots definitely fit that bill!
