    My first impression of these boots is they are HEAVY and STIFF! The quality of the Alico New Guides is unbelievably high. I have been searching for a pair of boots of good quality at a fair price for a long time and I have hit the jackpot. Compared to many of the other brands such as Danner, Keen, Merrell, Cabella's and the rest the New Guides are absolutely a tank. I love these boots. I wear a size 12 B, which is long and very narrow, and they fit perfect in the 12D size I ordered. I suggest anyone with a D width or more buy the wides because they run narrow. I took wore them on a 3 mile hike this morning, my first time wearing them, and I got no blisters but my heel did get a hot spot. Follow the advice of others and break them in slowly. Walking up a mountain with 3lbs of weight on my feet did make me tired faster, however, Once I get used to them it will be just fine. I wear out a pair of Merrells every 8 to 10 months, walking about 600 miles in that period. I feel I'll get thousands more miles out of my New Guides and then replace the sole and keep going. I'll update you on a few months.

    Very good boot, it’s going to take some time to break them in, finally a well made boot that will last more than a few seasons! hiking in them will tell all.

    I’ve had these for a couple of months. I’ve been breaking them in slowly. Even though it’s like strapping two 400 year old wooden ships to your feet I couldn’t be more happy with them. This is exactly how a hiking boot is supposed to be made. Don not fall for the make pretend glued up nylon “boots”. These are REAL. The only other choice for a grown man would be Peter Limmers boots and at five times the cost and a two year wait it kind of makes these the only choice. I’ll be buried in these boots(in a mud slide I hope.

    These are, in my opinion, the best old style hiking boots on the market for the money. To get something comparable you would have to spend around $400, which is what these are normally priced at, according to STP. Some reviewers have said that this is too much boot for daily use; I disagree. I'm 6' and 195 lbs and this is a perfect boot for me. They are heavy for sure, but this is what I was looking for. It's true that it takes a couple of months to break these in (and this can be a bit painful), but once you do then I've found that they are a good and very versatile boot. If you need a solid, heavy duty boot that offers lots of support then you can't go wrong here.
