I just picked me up another pair of Alico Summits... and this is the 5th pair of Alico boots that I have purchased. I currently have 2 Alico Tahoes, 1 Alico Guide and now 2 Alico Summits and I can honestly comment on each and every model.

    At first the fit was a little larger than I was expecting. I usually wear size 11.5 or 12 shoes, so I went with the 11.5 and found them too loose in the toe box. I ordered a size down and they now fit like a glove! Customer service was great and the replacement boots came very quickly. Over all I am very pleased. They look and feel better than I'd imagined and they have lots of grip and adjustability, which I like. I would recommend these to anyone. While they are a bit on the heavy side, they make up for it in durability and support. Thanks Sierra Trading Post!

    Only a week in, but I've walked a few miles in these on steep and rocky terrain, and so far not even a hint of a blister. They feel solid and protective, and not a squeak to be heard. They will take a while to break in, as they are stiff. Yet even when brand new, the leather liner fits like a glove. Also the toes are roomy, I guess for thick wool socks. It's nice to have some toe wiggle. I have to tighten up the laces usually a couple of times before I get them cranked down suitable.

    My last boots were Lowa gtx (40 EUR/7.5 US). In the Alico's I got the 7 and have plenty of space. So I would say these Alico's run true to size of not a bit larger.

    I take comfort knowing they are resoleable, so that is incentive to take care of the leather. I have some obenauf's that I plan on using on these.

    These are traditional Italian mountaineering and hiking boots. they are one piece leather and Norwegian welt construction. The old school style Vibram montbloc soles give superb traction on snow, ice and boulders. Due to their construction a break in period is required. I typically expand the toe box by stuffing tennis balls and soaking with alcohol for several days. This gives you the toe room for steep descents and thick socks. I also treat the leather with a beswax and mineral oil/vaseline product to waterproof and soften the leather. Murray beeswax for hair or Howards beeswax furniture polish are good products. I also use 550 paracord for the laces.I put duct tape on the tender spots on my feet for the first few outing to prevent blister then they are good to go. The insoles are ok but if you are a serious hiker you should buy custom or fitted insoles anyway. These boot give maximum support and protection for your feet and ankles and are very comfortable when broken-in. The main drawbacks are the weight and breath ability. Heat doesn't bother me and the support they provide is an acceptable trade off for me. I guess you call tell that I love these boots. I have summitted Mt Whitney done a rim to rim Grand canyon backpack with a 40# pack and countless hours of boulder hopping and scrambling in the desert with them. My first pair is over two years old and still going strong although they will be in need off a resole soon. I did make a toe rand to keep them from getting scuffed too much in the desert as I am very hard on boots. I have tried the lightweight eva sole type boots and they don't last me more than six months. If you are a trail runner type looking for the lightest boot, forget about these. You will not be happy with them. If you do multi day backpacking carrying heavy loads or hike on sketchy even terrain these will save you feet. There is a weight penalty but your tough Right?

    A rugged and comfortable boot. This boot can be worn all day and pretty much go anywhere. High quality build, old world. . hand made Italian craftsmanship. Break-in is minimal and the leather lining is pure luxury. True to size and width as all Alico products. Most Italian hikers are high volume boots, built for heavier socks or socks and liners. These are no exception. Do not confuse high volume with sized too wide.

    I have received my Alico Summits about a week ago. Am very happy with the quality of the boot and even more happy with STP service. Thanks guys
    These are an incredibly rigid boot and surprisingly light weight for there build and style.
    Fit is accurate and almost identical to my outgoing Scarpa Nangpa
    There are absolutely no high tech materials designed to fail in 1 seasons worth of wear. Nothing but leather, stitched sole and quality Italian craftsmanship. This does mean that you'll have to sacrifice a little comfort compared to a modern style of hiking boot. They feel like boots, not sneakers! With this comes fantastic sense of safety and security.
    I hike and hunt in very harsh, South Australian conditions and have never managed to get more than about thirteen months out of a pair of hiking boots! Even if the uppers have held up, the soles wear out and haven't been repairable.
    This is where the Alico steps in.
    I'm confident that the soles will last a long time and when they do kick it, I can have them replaced.
    There is no doubt that the leather uppers will last me years to come too and having a leather lining means a great life span too.
    So far I have taken them out for three treks at approximately 8km to 10km each.
    Not a single blister but the break in is tough on your feet so keep those toe nails short and the socks thick for the first few treks.
    Having said that though, the Summits are already starting to free up.
    I am looking forward to many years of service and reliability.
    Thanks STP
