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.

The Alico Tahoe is a good overall hiking shoe that is very c... Read More

    I have owned a number of pairs of this style of boot, branded as other brands (Asolo and Kathmandu). However, I suspect they all came out of the same factory or from the same makers. For the most part they are the only foot-ware I ware. My past boots have succumbed to various ailments. The shanks often rust out. A foot wound caused the leather lining to rot out of one pair and I managed to break the soles on another pair. But I cannot blame the boots. I get at least three years out of a pair and I give them hell.
    My new pair of Alico Summit boots are an excellent fit and required zero breaking in. They seem pretty good, but I think the fancy tongue design will be their weak point. The design on the New Guide boots looks more like the other pairs I have had and is a part that has never failed. I'll always wear this kind of boot. I just hope someone keeps making them or I will have to start looking after and repairing my old ones.

    I hiked/backpacked in sandals for 20 years. As I grew older, the sole soles of my feet grew tender and my desire for good purchase on the downhills forced me into boots. I began testing light weight boots and proceeded up the weight ladder until I found comfort and security with the Alico's. Once broken in, these are backpacking puppies. But, breaking them in tested my resolve. Left boot was a good fit. However, the right boot did not fit my larger right foot. No, I did not attempt the old hike till you bleed break in method. I did spend more hours than I care to remember with a broom handle working the heel cup. Finally, with nothing to lose, I soaked the boot overnight then hiked until it was dry. Success! Just greased them up and slapped on a backpack. Oh, how sweet it is to have happy feet.

    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?
