Uses Winter, Trail


Vintage good looks give this waterproof suede boot serious street appeal and we’ve integrated high-performing technology to ensure that it keeps you warm, dry and comfortable during everything from burly late fall hikes to long days working out in the elements. Rugged metal hardware ensures durability and we used soft pigskin for the collar and lining to further enhance comfort. The lightweight midsole is soft and flexible, providing just the right amount of cushioning and support. The Alpine Original is also offered in full-grain leather.

Men’s Original™ Alpine Suede Boot is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from About the shoe Good shoe, good material, exact size. Comfortable, fits well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value The only negative thing I could think of for this shoe is that the shoe feels a little unstable on slippery and wet flat hard surfaces; but since its intended for hiking conditions, which I have not done in the boots yet, I wont call that a deal breaker. Other than that, I am very satisfied. Fits great, looks great (I've gotten compliments on the looks from co-workers) and it feels even better if you throw in an orthotic insole; there's plenty of room. Very flexible feel to them without feeling cheap, and almost no break-in period.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, Comfortable but slightly big Love this boot and am excited to wear them. I usually wear a size 14, but this boot seems a little bigger than others. I am having to order a size down but forced to keep the original large pair because I cannot return them since I wore them once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Winter/Snow Shoes, outstanding utility and comfort I just ordered a pair of these in the New Year, and have been using them as my walking shoes in the rough recent winter weather in the Midwest. Overall, positives include: 1) Terrific utility - The suede holds out most moisture from the elements, and only once in the last 20 or so days have I felt cold from persistent wetness on the outer suede layer. Usually, the water doesn't "stick" 2) Comfort - For it's durability and toughness, it is a very comfortable walking shoe, that admittedly runs "slightly" above true size. The collar and the lining hug your feet well, keeping you comfortable during long walks and other light physical activity I have no complaints of this shoe, it's a terrific purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boot Purchased these to use on the weekends when I'm at the lake or in the field with my dog when the weather is decent. They're lighter weight than my other Columbia boots (insulated). These are so comfortable I'm been wearing them to work. I did swap the insoles with some from my Saucony running shoes since they offered a bit more arch support. An excellent purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Casual Boot I never got these expecting to climb the Matterhorn or anything but what I did get was just what I expected, a great casual boot for "city" wear, casual Friday, light trail hikes, travel and just generally knocking around. Quality is fine as is the comfort. I can't comment on "true to fit" as I wear a 12 Wide and I ordered these in a 13 as they didn't have a Wide and they worked great for my 12W foot! They are just a little loose around the shaft of the boot and I can foresee debris getting into the boot when I actually take these on a trail hike. They come with oxide yellow laces, but a set of black laces is also included. In summary just a cool light duty casual boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots I bought these boots for my son. He works outdoors as a Valet. Not only do they look sharp, they perform excellent in rain and snow. While others are complaining about cold feet, his are warm and dry. I would recommend these boots as well as the Original Alpine Leather pair I wear. Thanks for keeping your commitment to quality.
