Reviewed by Rockhopper from Indiana on Thursday, February 2, 2017Took a chance on these the first time I bought them and they rapidly became one of my favorite pair of boots. Very comfortable, very well made and they receive more compliments than any other boot I own. I have a wide foot and normally an Italian lasted boot is a bit narrow and problematic for me, but these in "M" feet my size 10 feet very well. I'd been watching closely and hadn't seen them show up in stock for awhile so when they did I quickly grabbed a second pair as a backup. Haven't received them yet, but assuming the size and construction is consistent from pair to pair I'm going to be very happy to see these show up on my doorstep.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Baronvonhaus from PA on Thursday, August 25, 2016The fit was about right, could have had just a little more space in the box, but ok and should break in fine.
Reviewed by bill from folsom, ca on Friday, August 19, 2016i read the previous reviews, i agree with all of them with one exception. i think these boots will breathe well. they are not water proof. they are exactly what i wanted, being light, good looking, flexible, not waterproof. they are perfect for day hikes on rough trails. might even work for a summer back pack. probably not best choice for snow or real wet conditions or climbing rocks. just as my mountaineering boots are the wrong boots for day hikes on rough trails. i am not going to waterproof these. BTW these are REALLY good looking. Italian style i guess. and their fit is perfect - i have size 12 feet, size 12 fits great with one thick sock and a liner. no heel slip (probably because the boot is so flexible). lots of room toes.

Question & Answer
Questions about this product? Get answers from community and staff experts.
“These look like great boots but I don't see anything about them being waterproof. Does anyone know if they are, and if not, how bad are they in wet conditions?”
These are water resistant, but not waterproof.
“I have always hiked and backpacked in trail runners, but want something a little more substantial and harder wearing. Would these be a better option than the Tahoes?
I generally wear 7.5 in dress shoes, 7 in workboots, and 7.5-8 in athletic shoes. What size would you recommend I get?”
I'd get the Tahoes for what you describe. I use the Nomads for more casual short walks. Alico boots are very true to size. (I wear a 10 in everything so your size spread is alien to me.) STP's return policy makes it easy to exchange if whatever size you choose isn't for you. Just quit second guessing it and do it. After you get the Tahoes, l let me know if you are as Happy as I. M.
The Tahoes are a bit higher, heavier and the soles are a bit thicker and stiffer. Also, I don't believe the Tahoes have waterproof leather. The Nomads would be great for light hiking, the Tahoes are great for a little more distance and/or rougher trails. I have been very satisfied with all of the Alico boots I've purchased.
@I.M - Thanks for answering my question! More questions... I generally wear trail runners for all of my backpacking and I like how light they are, but I just want something that is long-lasting. Do you think these would fit the bill for multi-day backpacking trips?
Also, can you shed some light on sizing? What size do you wear in dress shoes/tennis shoes/work boots/brannock and what size do you wear in these?
