rated 4.5 of 5 stars It's a modern version of the old '70s-'80s style of hiking boot. I don't know about you, but for me a good sturdy boot just makes me feel invincible. When things get tough you have to be able to depend on your gear. This is that kind of boot. It is very stiff at first, but just like the boots of the past once you break it in to your foot there is nothing more comfortable. That's when you are confident that through thick or thin, creek or mountain, the boot is not going to let you down halfway to… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Durability, trail traction, and load bearing ability. My buddy builds Web pages for STP, so naturally he was my go-to guy for hiking boots. And his choice for me was this set of Alicos. I loved um right out of the gate. For me at 200 lbs, the weight didn't matter too much. I knew immediately by the construction that they could withstand my 50+lbs pack and my Labradors pulling me down the trail just fine. And 6 years later they still go with me on every trip I take. Just oil um and dry um two times… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars An extremely durable, stiff, old school hiking boot that will last several years of hard use. I have a moderately wide foot and wear a size 11 to size 12, and if possible I prefer a wide width shoe. I bought the 11 W size in the Summit. They seem to run "true to size." The first thing you'll notice about the Summit is the heft—due to the Vibram rubber sole, steel shank, and all leather construction. The sole is a very durable, hard rubber that wears like iron. The downsides are that traction in… Full review

New Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars It took me a while to find a pair of new Guides. I've been using Danner Mountain Light boots for many years. I thought I understood what it meant to break in a leather boot...clearly I was wrong. It was obvious to me  from the moment I opened the box—the 7 plus pound box—that these were different. These boots make my Danners and old Asolos feel like jogging shoes. The quality and durability is unbelievable. I use them for work and play. I basically wear them every day. But be warned, it took… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars I've worn them now for well over a year, and they show virtually no signs of wear. I wear them hiking here in Colorado Rockies, foothills, urban greater Denver trails, yard work, outdoor construction — EVERYTHING. I bought these in Feb. 2013. I have literally put them through hell; hiking and climbing in Colorado Rockies, hiking urban trails in greater Denver, worn to office [look great as long as kept well lubed with Obenauf's Leather Oil — and in wet weather and hiking wet snow well daubed… Full review
