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.

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

    I recently ordered a second pair of these excellent boots - wanted to post a quick correction to something I posted in an earlier review. These are 1st quality boots, not 2nds. I ordered a few different sizes to get the size correct and they were all 1st quality boots with no problems.

    I have EEE wide feet and the Alico Summit in wide are some of the only shoes that fit me. The Summits can also be readily converted into telemark boots by re-soling with 75mm duckbill Vibram soles. Currently no XC boots in "wide" sizes are available anywhere on planet Earth, so these boots were absolutely critical for me to get out there skiing!

    Dave Page Cobbler in Seattle with do the conversion for a reasonable price. I hiked in my Summits for a summer to break them in, then sent them for telemark conversion, then I cross-country skied in them dozens of times. They still look very clean and have not broken down at all after 100+ miles of skiing! I expect them to last for many years. At STP's price this is one of the best values I've seen in footwear. Highly recommended!

    Love these boots. Have 2 pairs for myself and bought a pair for my teenage son. They are sturdy, well made and comfortable.My oldest pair are probably 8-10 years old. The second pair was bought just to have an extra. Break in was easy but don't expect to go on a long hike right out of the box.Now they fit like a glove. For both of us they seem true to size. I have read many reviews on STP and the one critique seems to be weight. The ankle protection these provide is well worth any weight difference from a lightweight boot. As many others have commented I have replaced the insole with an aftermarket insole. I would not dream of going into the woods with anything else on my feet.

    I got my boots and they are amazing. The looks, workmanship and comfort were amazing. I have worn them indoors only to start the break-in and they are like a custom fit on my foot. They are not for a slim foot, for sure. I am a full 11D and they fit like a glove. The feel inside of the full leather inners is unbelievable. I will post an update after I get them broke in and use them on a 5-10 mile trail walk.

    These are a little on the heavy side, but not as bad I was thinking. I grew up with full leather boots though and to people used to half fabric, these will seem heavy. The great fit makes up for some of the weight. I have a pair of Oboz, Tevas and Merrills and none of them are as well made or pretty. Time will tell on the quality, but I feel these are lifetime boots. Grab them at any deal flyer price under $200 and you will have gotten a bargain in my opinion.

    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.
