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.

    This boot is absolutely great. It provides great support and feels like a glove. The leather lining makes it very comfortable from the start, and it gets better as you break it in. The sole is great for hiking and it is deeper than many other boots I have seen. The leather is top quality and the Norwegian welt construction makes it easily resolable. This boot may feel a bit rigid at first for some who are used to a much softer type of synthetic materials, but it provides all the needed support for an uneven terrain, while carrying a loaded backpack. Well treated and maintained it is bound to last for many years.

    It amazes me that no one in the shoe business is publishing their sizing in standardized unit (inch, cm). This is crucial for mail ordering. I've inquired about the length and width (presumably under the ball) of the insole of these summit boots and here is what I got from chatting with the sales reps at STP:

    --
    Size 10M: 11 3/8 x 3 3/4 ''
    Size 10.5M: 11 1/2 x 3 3/4 ''
    Size 11.5 M - 11 7/8 x 3 3/4 ''
    --

    Now you can do your own math to extrapolate to other sizes.

    Based on this information, I first purchased size 10M, but they still seem a tad tight, so I exchanged for 10.5M which is about right length wise. However, note that if you want to use custom insoles, which would raise your entire foot from the footbed, go a half size bigger, because the (thermal-plastically treated?) toe box doesn't arise straight up but rather leans slightly towards the heel, effectively reducing the available length when you foot is raised by a custom insole. For reference my bare foot (the longer one) measures at 11 '', but you need to account for room required by socks, toe bang buffer, and also the shape of your feet (e.g. which toe is the longest, etc.)

    Still, I ended up returning them because on both pairs I got, the D rings on the right boot do not seem to be aligned properly: the entire right row is more forward (i.e. closer to the toe box) than the left row, thus when tightening up the lace, you are pulling the right side backwards. This may or may not be an issue once the leather looses up after break-in, but I don't want to risk creating a systematic stress across the entire boot.

    I also prefer a single piece tongue than the two-piece one used in the Summit.

    Right out of the box, the material of the tongue gusset causes the boots to squeak when walking.

    The interior leather lining seems flimsy

    One of the nicest pair of hiking boots I've ever owned. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a rugged boot that is sure to last.

    These boots are great! I wish Alico would have gotten the contract for the US Military. After twenty-two years of wearing [...] boots the military made us wear, I am glad to finally find a boot that is kind to my feet! These are boots! These are made to stand up to abuse. Well constructed, solid, and they feel great!

    I've owned them all (backpacking boots) over the past 25+ years, but this is the best pair yet. The quality is apparent the moment you open the box. Not 2nd's or blemished; 1st quality and very well made. Stiff at first as expected, but I'm sure they will break-in nicely. I'm a Land Surveyor and wear this type of boot every day, so I know what to look for and anticipate out of footwear. I normally wear a 9 1/2 wide in most boots, but decided to roll the dice with 9 1/2 Medium in these; perfect fit. Thinking about purchasing a second pair now. Thank you STP for a great deal!!!
