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

    This will be my first purchase of an old and traditional, heavy-duty leather hiking boots and my first purchase made from STP. Throughout, the whole experience is very much pleasing and STP and the community here had been really helpful to answer my queries from sizing and care for the boots. At first, I contemplated in buying an oversize boots. I am wearing a size 10 (US) running shoes and after much thought, I proceed with purchasing a size 11 after reading reviews from other hikers to generally wear a half size larger or one size up. I thought this is too bulky and there is a lot of toe room space, but now I am loving these boots so much. I have yet to wear it or even condition it. Will appreciate any of you guys to advise me further. I am planning to use the Obenhauf's conditioner I had bought specifically for these boots. I am a very much happy and satisfied buyer now. Yeah!

    Initially, I would like to thank all previous reviews that have helped me a lot to decide that the Alico New Guide Mountaineering Boots - Leather (For Men) is perfect for me. There are times I wanted to have this boot model because it is beautiful, so I considered the following relevant points to buy: comfort, finish, quality of materials, product durability, and price. As for comfort, I can say that the size 10.5 D served perfectly to me, this is the size I always buy for boots, so I had no problems with these Alico boots, my feet fit perfectly on the sides and heel, there is also enough space To prevent my fingers from touching the tip of the boot, avoiding problems especially in the descents. The 3/4 steel shank system did not bother me at all, I felt no difficulty crouching, flexing my feet normally during the walk. The outer leather is thick and rather stiff, but this is a quality that increases wear resistance, I can say that at first I felt a little hardness in my feet, but without bubbles, and after a treatment with natural oils for hydration of the leather , And a week of daily use, the boots have finally molded at my feet and today they are as tailor made for me, I love it! The handcrafted finish is spectacular, with precise seams and no loose ends, the pieces fit in harmony, a point that deserves praise is the all-leather interior trim except the insole that is made of synthetic material, so I replaced it with another insole with a surface Leather on silicone underneath, which is very comfortable. Metal speed lacing system resistant and better preserves the lace because it has sliding pulleys. The quality of the materials is great, there are no scars on the leathers, the Vibram sole is authentic and the stitching lines have no flaws, the shoelace is of excellent quality, however it is in the red color, so they were stored for replacement, while other shoelaces Browns are in place in my boots, but this is only for personal taste, I kept the quality, I just changed the color. As for the durability, I have no doubt that I will wear these boots for many, many years without ever worrying about detachment of their parts, I had problems with other boots that had soles glued, but I believe that these Alico will resist much more because it has sewed sole. For all that these Alico Guide Boots offer, I have considered the appropriate price. Other brands even charge twice as much, but they do not deliver everything that this boot presents, so for me it was a perfect purchase! I am buying other Alico boots for my wife, who loved mine and now wants for her. I also received positive feedback from my friends when I wore these boots! Anyway, with these boots I feel safer, comfortable and with good looks. A curiosity, these boots are the product of Italian craftsmen living near the Dolomites (mountain range with snowy peaks), so they know full well what they do! Highly recommend!

    I have been searching for Italian made all leather boots, these Alico boots were EXACTLY what I wanted. Due to extreme arthritis in my knees and hips, I require a sturdy boot. They fit great and feel fantastic. I put them on as soon as they arrived and everyday since.

    Good quality boot. 3/4 shank, so yes, they do flex in the toe which is what you need. The vibram sole is old school deep lugs that wont clog with mud and loose traction like some of todays new-age boots. Will still work with proper crampons. They do need to be broken in to allow for more toe flex. My method is to start several months before you head to the high country. Start with short walks, adjusting the fit of the footbeds if hot spots develop at bottoms of feet. I wear double socks, New Zealand marino wool with a thin poly outer sock to protect the wool. I did install sorbothane footbeds, add a second thin footbed if required. Be sure the laces are tight at every eyelet, so the boot has to flex with your foot, not the other way around.
    Then lengthen the walks to wearing all day, distance at least a mile, include running some distance. Keep adding distance until you can hike all day, wear them all day.
    The boots will become your best friend. With a full pack, standing on one foot, you can stand on a rock edge the width of a pencil with no problem. With the same full pack you can glissade down snow or rock scree slopes with no problem. Wade thru rivers waist deep, ring your wool socks out on the other side, and keep going. Boulder jump with the same full pack no problem.
    I give them a rubbed in coat of sno-seal, nickwax, etc before each long outing.
