Great overall boot
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Frank from New Mexico on Friday, September 19, 2014
The Tahoe hiking boot from Alico is an excellent everyday hiker and boot. I used this boot regularly for almost two years before needing to get another pair. It is not the most durable boot, due mainly to the textile lining, and leather type this model offers. I used these boots hard and within two years I had worn a hole in the lining above my big toe and completely used up the Vibram sole. I decided to replace the boot instead of resoling due to the worn and beat up condition. It is possible with lighter use that a person could resole this boot. I used an oil based waterproofing agent on my boots and the leather eventually broke down, I was surprised by this, but as I said these boots got hard use in the woods and on the road as my motorcycle boot. I have just purchased another pair of this model boot, and I would again when this next pair wears out. For the price you are getting a solid, comfortable boot with minimal break in time, that looks good and does a fine job. Do not expect to have these boots forever. Buy the Alico New Guide if you want a more lasting boot, but be ready to break those in. Great boot, great price, thanks Sierra Trading.
