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.

    These are not your new lightweight/hipster boots! These are old school, built like a tank boots! Leather interior, great leather exterior and heavyweight outsole! I did as others suggested and got a new pair of insoles for the boots and this did help. I found them true to size also. These boots require some break in. These will last you a very long time even with heavy use! I have always wanted a pair of boots like these!

    I currently own four pairs of Alico hiking boots, mainly because of how impressed I was when I bought my first pair of Summits over 2 years ago. I would neatly summarize the other pairs as follows: The Tahoes are well-made, comfortable boots but don't have the ankle support that the Summits do. The New Guide Mountaineering boots are not suited for the average hiker or backpacker - while extremely tough and well-made, they've never broken in, and have caused serious blisters over both Achilles tendons all 5 or 6 times I've tried to walk further than a couple miles, and that's with two pairs of socks and appropriate lacing. I may try the "soak in hot water then take a hike" approach someday, just to see if I can get something back for the money I spent.

    On the other hand, for me the Summits are "just right," as Goldilocks would say. They mold to your feet as they break in (which takes about 20-30 miles on the trail), and are very comfortable, for up to 16 miles at a time (the most I've done in them at once). They aren't made waterproof (no Gore-Tex), but I have fixed that problem with Sno-Seal. Not insulated, but this isn't a problem for all but the very coldest conditions, as long as you wear some thick wool socks. The Vibram sole is very grippy, and the Norwegian welt construction insures that when I finally wear down that sole (it's proving pretty durable, after more than a couple hundred miles of hiking), I can get it replaced at the local shoe repair shop.

    I have had glue-on soles come apart on me, and this happened to my friend when we were in the middle of a hike at Big Bend National Park (without a spare pair). I'm not buying that kind of junk any more, and would rather spend my hard-earned dollars on this quality, hand-made Italian craftsmanship. Yes, these boots are heavier than the ones made with newer materials, but I feel this is a small trade-off when you consider the durability and comfort which you get in return.

    To try and help others regarding sizing, I usually wear a size 11 sneaker (in this world of undersized, made-in-Asia products), but my true size in a dress shoe is a 10, regular width. With one pair of thick wool socks, the size 10 1/2 (medium-width) Summit fits me perfectly. I recently got a pair of 11 Wides, which are great for two pairs of thick socks, but I'd be swimming in them if I wore any less.

    Have worn the Summits hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains, the Adirondacks, the National Forests and State Parks of NY, PA, and OH, and in the parks and forests around where I live. Highest recommendation, without reservation.

    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.
