I now own and have used all three alico boots offered at sierra - Summit, Tahoe and Guide. I have hiked at least 200 miles in each style from steep to flat, soft to rocky, wet and dry. These boots were clearly made by very experienced professionals and the workmanship of these Italian cobblers is si... Read More

    For me, this is the most comfortable of the Alico hiking boots. I have tried them all and this is the only one that gave me enough room in the toe box. 4 stars instead of 5 as I would have liked a leather lining.

    out of the box this is a traditionally solidly made boot. full grain uppers, stitched welt sole. having said that, for me, it's really too lightweight for serious hiking. would have preferred summit or guide alico models but not avail so i got these.

    will use them as my daily driver footwear. nothing wrong with that, good support for that utility light weight use.
    but when the summit or mt guide (alico) become avail in my size, i'll spring for that for real hiking use.
    these are only for wanna be weekenders imho but better than most

    Well-made, all-leather boots like these aren't easy to find, and the quality when they arrived was just as good as I could have hoped. I must admit that the "wide" size I ordered didn't fit my husband's heel (his heel wasn't kept snug in its place, he said it kept "slipping up"). We certainly could have adjusted the size (probably just by changing from wide to regular width) but, alas, he seemed to prefer a softer, more flexible boot, which in my opinion won't be nearly as high quality - or as good looking as these. I suggest you buy them and look fantastic and classy while wearing them!

    My new Tahoe's just arrived today and I'm not sure what all the fuss is about when it comes to weight! Was less than impressed when the delivery driver handed them over and was thinking they might have only sent one based on the whining I've read on some of the reviews. The uppers are more flexible than I was expecting but the footbed and sole seem pretty solid which is what I was hoping for. Going to give them a coat of snow seal and start to break them in once my new insoles arrive, I have an unusually high arch. These aren't going to replace the Vasques I bought back in the 80's but not even Vasque can do that anymore, we'll see how they work out.

    I have been wearing these boots as everyday footwear for three months now. I chose them because of their traditional construction and Vibram soles, which can be replaced at some point if needed.

    Out of the box, they were quite stiff. Because of their construction, breaking in took some time, it was probably two weeks before they were really flexible at the toes and ankles. I used Danner boot dressing as part of the break-in process; this helped considerably. I also deliberately bought them larger and wider than I'd normally need to accommodate my widening feet and the use of insoles for my bad arches. (Note, the arch support is good as is, but my feet really need the extra support.)

    I rate these boots very highly. They are extremely well constructed and I suspect they'll last for quite a long time. If the welts outlast the soles, then any good shoe repair shop should be able to resole them. If there is anything negative, it is that they tend to be noisy when wearing them around the house. I no longer hike and so am unable to give an opinion of how these boots would work on the trail, under the load of a pack. But for my purposes, they are what I want and need.

    • I have purchased several pairs of the Alico Tahoe Hiking Boots and found the color to be consistent and as displayed in the images.

      They are also very comfortable hiking boots and easy to break in.

    • I just responded to you inquiry, and I did not notice that there was two colors in the images. I have never seen the lighter color offered. I have the darker ones. STP forwarded your message to me for reply. And your specific questions should be answered by customer service.

    • The lighter color is currently out of stock. Due to the nature of the closeout business, we often receive items in limited quantities. Therefore, some sizes and colors can sell out quickly. Occasionally we are able to reorder a product, but closeout items are typically unable to be reordered. We suggest signing up for the My Updates as the best way to monitor incoming products.

    • try 11.5 D US

      The fit is true to size, and roomy.

    • Hi Nick,

      I usually wear a 10.5 wide USA and because of several reviews I read, I ordered a half size up and they fit perfectly. I couldn't be more pleased. I have hiked around 100 miles in them and they are great. I hope that helps.

    • According to our fit team this item is running true to size. We recommend you go with whichever size you wear most, or with hiking boots.

    • I feel that these boots fit very true to size. Whatever you know your size to be, that size should fit. I have a wide foot and thus I routinely order men's boots despite being a Sheila. My husband has the same boots and he has a narrow heel. We agree that the toe box is a tad on the generous side, but he got the regular width and had no heel slippage. I change out the insole for superfeet which takes up a bit of the excess space. In general these are great fitting, quick break-in boots for a heavy quality boot and I recommend them highly. I work trail crew full time for the US Forest Service and over 14 years I just bought my 3rd pair.

  • “Are these boots gortex?”
    Asked by David from NC on 4/20/2017 5:50:38 PM
    • No, they are not gortex lined but are high quality Italian leather. My previous boots were goretex lined but the mid sole failed so this time I got boots that are re-soleable. I treat the leather with Obenauf's heavy duty leather preservative which makes them waterproof.
      Answered on 4/20/2017 7:43:13 PM by Nev from Vacouver, BC
    • I purchased the Alico Summit, and like the Tahoe, they are not Gortex. However, the leather is tanned specifically by Alico to be waterproof. Alico calls it "Anfibio". This is "old school" leather which actually should be cooler to the feet than Gortex. The trade-off is that you will just have to periodically rub the boots with a leather balsam to retain the waterproofing. With leather, you should always apply regular applications of a balsam anyway: the leather will look good, become softer, and last much longer. My Summits are also lined with leather, so I also balsam the liner when I do the outside. I use Renapur, but there are other products that work with leather at a lower price.
