Information about Alico Summit Backpacking Hiking Boots (For Men)
Closeouts. Nestled within the Alps, the Dolomites are known for jagged peaks and deep crevasses that have challenged the climber's craft for centuries. The Summit from Alico was handcrafted by artisans in this awe-inspiring region. Its one-piece oil-tanned leather upper was made to explore the tough terrain of rugged landscapes. Soft leather interior and moisture-wicking insole reduces friction and blisters.

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.

    My hubby was looking for a classic looking hiking boot, with leather lining. These are perfect! He's had them for more than one year and they continue to get more comfortable. He normally wears a size 9.5 or 10, so I bought a 10 knowing he'd wear heavy hiking socks. We had to exchange the 10 for a 9.5. Even with heavy wool socks and wool sock liners, there's wiggle room. He's had surgery on both Achilles tendons, and the height of these is perfect ... support but no rubbing. The insoles were immediately changed to something with more cushion, and he switched to red shoe laces. :-)

    We expect these high quality boots to last for many years and many miles!

    Unfortunately the wide was not wide enough in the toe box and center and much to wide in the heal. So i will be returning it.

    I purchased these boots in March of 2013 and wanted to wait a while until I had owned them for a while before I submitted a review. First off, these boots are made remarkably well. The leather is thick and with proper care will last for many years to come. I always use cedar trees and allow them to fully dry prior to wearing them again. It took me a long time to break them in, but this was to be expected as they are solid. I did some day hikes in them over a period of several months and felt better and better hike after hike. I put a couple 20 milers in them after putting around 150-200 miles on them and my feet didn't hurt at all. After about 6 months I broke them down using some saddle soap and put a good coat of polish on them making them look brand new again. You will notice by the picture that they are much darker than they were when I purchased them. This is due to baking in some Sno-Seal and polish. To this day they still look new. The only thing I can see some wear on is the outer Vibram Soles, but this is to be expected. Can't possibly ask for better performance from a boot than these. Overall, a great pair of boots. Highly recommended.

    i unfortunately believed the numerous reviews stating these ran large, and changed my order from a size 12 us (46 euro) to an 11.5 us...sierratradingpost said if i had a problem i could get a free exchange...which was needed the moment in tried them on.

    so then, getting the 12 us i, unfortunately again, found a problem all to common with online orders, one shoe larger than the other. i've found this with online orders on all the major websites with such diverse brands as the extreme high end cowboy boot Lucchese, to Dan Post cowboy boots, and now to the great Italian hiking boot maker Alico. the left was a half-size smaller than the right...really bad as my left foot is in fact a half size LARGER than my right foot...and the 12 us was predicated on that.

    ok, all this prereview stuff that YOU may run into as i did, over, i'll say sierratradingpost 2-day sent the second replacement at no cost, and agreed to have the replacement checked by staff before sending. third time was a charm as they say, and this Alico Summit was correct.

    NOW, to the boot. i must say it surpassed my expectations, given that my expectations were in fact pretty high given the gorgeous pictures and stellar reviews of the craftsmanship. again, the sizing is SMACK on to what the euro OR u.s. sizing should be...as an example it is completely the same as Timberland and Hanwag, so hopefully that helps if you have those sizes.

    i will admit i'm an urban hike and pretty much a poser. i DO hike as a photographer who shoots at night on rough urban sidewalks, as well as in rough natural environs...beaches, hillsides, torn up urban wastelands, inner city treks, everywhere. up to 5 hours at a time. but beyond that, i like wearing cool retro (actually from another era in the case of this boot) in my normal life. going to the post office and such.

    from the reviews i expected some boot Clint Eastwood might have used to climb the Eiger. and he might have used these from the way they're built. but these are surprisingly comfortable and normal feeling for a mountaineering boot. they are indeed STIFF...but as that loosens and conforms to your foot upon walking/wearing, they feel oddly somewhat like really normal leather shoes. i attribute that to the fact these ARE leather, and NOT the nowadays leather upon multi-interior materials that make your feet feel like you are wearing a sleeping bag on your feet.

    i am such a poser, wearing these to the movies under jeans, to the post office, whole foods shopping, etc, and being in L.A., i end up driving in these. not a stick with a clutch, but still, these are actually very tactile and unclunky enough to drive mulholland and laurel, as well as coldwater, canyons comfortably. they are not ferrari driving slippers, but a massive hiking boot you can take the canyons in, is not the clunky frankenstein boot some reviews claim.

    while i have not trekked up any mountainsides in these yet, they feel very easy on the feet, not bulky, and not lacking cushion on concrete. sitting watching a movie they were expectedly stiff around the ankle as they are not broken in, but the boot itself, still stiff, felt great just sitting on my foot.

    most people reviewing these are bona fide hikers, and have testified to the heritage of these in strong hiking conditions. wearing these i have no doubt they'd hold up to hiking through the Apocalypse. my review may allay rears of how frankensteinian or bulky and clodhopperish these might be out of the box. i'd say these feel as beautiful as they look...though expectedly stiff until some walking and wearing have conformed the leather to your feet.

    these are amazing boots, the craftsmanship and classic look WITHOUT those infernal molded soles glued to a leather upper, but rather beautifully stitched vibram soles attached to a gorgeously crafted full one-piece leather upper. these are closeouts so i assume, despite still being on the Alico website, are on their way out in the future. rather than seeking old classic style boots on ebay, that have been worn, i'd suggest doing as i did, get your piece of history new here. i waited until sierra had the coupon discount that was pretty good, but i also didn't want to have my size sell out...i did get a great deal and i couldn't be happier.
