Treemme Boots from Italy

I wonder if anyone has heard of this company en?

Over the years I have purchased many hiking boots for working outdoors.
BITD I could go to Kinney's or Thom McAn and buy a pair Italian handmade Vibram sole hiking boots that held up.
The price was around $70 to $80 back then.
They would hold up well for many years.
Then in the early 1990's these become unavailable.
Kinney was bought out and went out of business.

I lucked and and was able to purchase two pairs of Raichel Ravine boots from EMS.
Raichle had been bought out so they were on clearance at $150 per pair.
These boots used 3mm thick Gallusser Juchten leather.

Last year my last pair of Raichle boots started to fall apart from a decade of almost daily wear.
The midsoles started to fall apart.
The price to have the boots rebuilt is very expensive.
Having a new Vibram outsole replaced is not too expensive.
When the leather midsole has to be replaced it has to be sewn by hand.

A few years ago I purchased a pair of Alico New Guide boots alico-made-in-italy-new-guide-mountaineering-boots-leather-for-men~p~64724.
I like the boots but they are too high to wear in the heat of summer.

Last summer I purchased a pair of Alico Tahoe boots.
After wearing these boots about nine months the leather started to crack.
Since then I have contacted numerous boot makers in Europe.

I finally found the perfect boots for me, the Treemme article 137 boots.
The rear shaft height is 4.75" and the front is 6".
The Gallusser Juchten leather is 3.3-3.9mm thick.
The weight is even heavier than the Alico Guide boots which use 3mm thick Perwanger leather.
The soles have better gripping than Vibram soles due their tread pattern.

These boots compare to many cost no object boots and I paid 250 euros direct from Italy.


IMHO the Raichle Ravine boots are superior to any of the Alico boots sold by Sierra Trading Post.
The Treemme article 137 are even superior to the old Raichle line.
BITD Treemme made one model of boots for Kinney.
Their Norwegian welt Colorado Vachetta Hiker.

This is a photo of the soles from Treemme Calzature.

If you look at the boots from the side one can see how there are treads in the middle of the sole.

Just wondering how these Treemme boots are holding up? I'm possibly in the market for something similar and these look like a good option.

I have not been on here in a long time.
I also purchased a pair of Alico Guide boots a few years ago.. The back of the inside of the Alico Guide boots started to tear in less than two years.
It's due to the design of the boots.
It's hard to get my foot in the Alico Guide boots.

The Treemme 137 boots are holding up very well.
They are exactly the same height as my old EMS Raichle Ravine boots.
These are the best boots I have ever owned.
