Alico New Guide Mountaineering Boots

Reviewed by USFSranger from West Montana on Monday, January 27, 2014
Outside of the old original 7797 HERMAN SURVIVORS, these are the best boots I have ever used!
Working with the United States Forest Service (30 years) and the National Park Service (10 plus years),
my work keeps me in the backcountry of Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. Back East, I work in the
Southern Appalachian Highlands.

My only complaint is that the soles will separate from the leather uppers even with the best of water
proofing. The sprays that Alico recommends will cause the stiching to "dry rot" after just a few months
of rigid use in the mountains.

A good cobbler can "hand stich" the soles back on.
