Verified Buyer Reviewed by Justin from Wichita, KS on Sunday, September 3, 2017Nice boots. Light hiking, backpacking, and for everyday wear.
The laces that came with the boots I ordered were different than those shown in the picture. My boots came with a cream/ gold color, the same color as the upper inside of the boot.
The footbed is not very cushioned but with the proper socks this is not an issue.
I ordered my actual size despite reading reviews suggesting to size down by 1/2. I'm glad I didn't because the fit is accurate. The toe box is roomy allowing for thicker socks to be worn without pinching your foot. I ordered 9.5 M, my heel rests perfect in the heel cup, no sliding in any direction, my toes fit perfect the front of the boot just short of hitting the toe box.
I would not suggest buying a Medium width boot if you have narrow feet since these boots the toe box for a medium is on the wide/roomy side.
Sole of the boot is thin accurate to the picture which is stylish, low profile, allowing these to be worn in more formal settings. The color of the rubber of the sole is that of traditional Dr Martins without the semi transparency.
Reviewed by Britney from Brooklyn, NY on Wednesday, July 12, 2017These Alico boots look amazing and are incredible quality. I took my time breaking them in over the fall and they were perfect for light hikes and walking around NYC in the winter. I purchased them mainly for hiking this summer and was so disappointed in the boots after hiking Mt. Katahdin last week. My toes were destroyed on the way down the mountain (two hours of misery!!!)! I'm not sure if I just need a slightly larger boot (I purchased a men's size 7 1/2 and maybe I need a men's 8?) since I heard that your feet swell more on summer hikes. If Sierra Trading Post would consider an exchange for a bigger size, I would HAPPILY try another pair. I get so many compliments on them and have sent many friends to purchase them and now regret the recommendation... whats the point in looking good if you're in pain?
Verified Buyer Reviewed by desertrat from California on Friday, May 26, 2017These are a well made boot that are lighter than the other Alico products I have seen. Unfortunately the interior volume is lower than I need, I have a high arch, so they don't fit right. I returned them.
Reviewed by Dmitriy from Ukraina on Friday, February 24, 2017Boots look good, fit perfectly.
But they are absolutely not waterproof ...
Please see the photo.
In addition to these hole water comes through the seams.
I am totally disappointed.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Day Hiker from VA on Tuesday, January 31, 2017Perfect fit. Nice lighter weight for my use. Had Sundowners for last 20 years. These are lighter and better fit- little wider then the Vasque, which is good for me.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by AZ Hiker from AZ on Tuesday, December 27, 2016The boots seem to be very well made but they don't work for me. After a few hours wear, just behind the toe of the boot began bending into my foot with every step so quite uncomfortable and the reason for my return.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by beagleowner from Westchester, NY on Monday, December 19, 2016Tried them on and they fit like soft gloves. My wife saw them and told me that I was getting them for Xmas! Very good quality good-looking boots. Won't be able to wear them until after Christmas.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Gov from Helendale on Sunday, December 18, 2016I have been wearing these boots every day since I received them a week ago. Even though they have not been trail tested yet they are definitely the most comfortable boots right out of the box I have ever owned
Verified Buyer Reviewed by redeyehawk from New Hampshire on Wednesday, November 9, 2016I wanted to love these boots. The craftsmanship was obvious, the fit was very nice, the materials flawless. It must be me. I wore them around the house, could't miss that the flex point was just ahead of the lacing seam. Similar to my experience with the Tahoe, the flex point bit downward; (on the Tahoe) it pinched quite hard on the left boot, I returned them, though I liked the boots.
So . . . I wore the Bellunos outdoors for a couple days and could see my concern was real. Since I wore them outside, I figure I own them . . . I gave them away to someone who apparently can wear them. Sometimes you just have to try stuff to convince yourself of your suspitions, anyway someone got a nice pair of boots they can use; I'm okay with that.
Reviewed by scrittitrader from Vermont on Sunday, November 6, 2016These boots are super fine and look great - they really exceeded my expectations. I wear a size 8.5 (always) and decided to go with a size 8 based on other reviews - definitely the right move as these boots run a 1/2 size large. I have wide, flat feet and these boots are really comfy - plenty of toe space - and there's no need to break them in. After one week, they are even more comfortable. These boots repel water well and will keep your feet dry. The soles are a bit slippery so I wouldn't necessarily wear these on rough, rocky, slippery terrain - better for work (they look great!) or to wear about town or in the woods/ yard work/ etc. I really like the soft leather interior as well - so pleased with my purchase. Highly recommended.
