About Alico Summit Hiking Boots - Leather (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. Alico's Summit hiking boots are handcrafted by artisans in this awe-inspiring region and built for exploring rugged landscapes. The oil-tanned leather upper is water-resistant, and the leather lining and moisture-wicking insole reduce friction and blisters.

Reviewed by George from Fwb fl on Tuesday, July 4, 2017Bought these boots for hiking the Camino Santiago De Compostela. They did great no blisters held up good to an all day rain. The more I walked the more comfortable they became. At the end I noticed a separation on the heels from the boot. Called sierratraiding post for advice was told to contact alico. Great boot disappointing on the customer service. Took to a shoe repair place problem fixed.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Oliver from Washington on Friday, June 23, 2017Good boot, solid construction, comfortable. I'm a 12.5 shoe with a wider foot, but a thirteen works solid when I wear two pairs of socks (recommended for comfort). I added an insole, and bought leather preservative and will continue to apply it after trips. Great grip on hard-packed trails and boulder-y paths.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by JustMe from Missouri on Thursday, June 22, 2017I had to order a man's boot because the Alico boots for women were not available in my size. Thanks to your sizing information, I was able to order the correct size. I love my boots, they are very sturdy and comfortable.Probably the last boots I will ever have to buy, unfortunately, I was very satisfied with ever aspect of my purchase from Sierra.
Reviewed by Dave from MA on Monday, May 29, 2017I was intrigued by the Summit even as I passed it over twice to purchase 2 other pairs of "new tech" boots, both of which I like very much. The Zamberlan Vioz Plus is my go to winter boot and the Aku Alpina Plus is my lightweight summer boot. They are superb in their roles. I have a fairly high volume foot and my left foot is wider with a bunion so narrow boots are out of the question. Seeing the Summit in my size, I pulled the trigger. First off, they are absolutely true to size lengthwise. I've been a 10 forever and all three of these boots fit perfectly at size 10. Knowing my bunion might pose an issue, I opted for the wide and am glad I did. The interior volume and shape are perfect. The slight extra room in my right shoe is easily filled by a good sock and the laces. The other critical dimension is where the boot flexes at the forefoot. It's ideal, in fact you'd never guess this boot has such a heavy duty sole and midsole. The stride is easy enough for casual walks on trails. I wouldn't recommend for pavement though. The height at the ankle is perfect too. High enough for solid support yet not chafing at all.
Everyone gripes about the weight. No, they are not lightweight. But I grew up with 8 inch Herman Survivors with the exact same sole as this boot and probably weighing about the same. They were my everyday footwear outside the gym. When you consider the technical hiking fit these boots have they feel quite nimble to me.
So, as a fussy, boot obsessed hiker, I'm very impressed. With the right maintenance they should be on my feet for many, many years.
Reviewed by Flymo from New Hampshire on Thursday, May 25, 2017I seriously didn't think I'd ever find a new boot of this quality and construction. Truly outstanding. Full leather lining is comfy. My boots which arrived in May 2017 did include a pretty nice insole, so it appears that has been upgraded.
Fit is pretty much spot on in length. The toe box is very roomy even in the D width - so much so that I am going to try a thicker insole to take up room I don't need. Very happy with these so far.

“What is the measurement in inches of the width of the insole for the size ten and also for the size ten wide?”
“Can someone tell me how tall these are measured from the ground to the highest point? Also seems like some people say fit true and others say go a little big, i will be putting green superfeet insoles in, my left big toe needs room, i normally wear 8 1/2d in shoes, thanks.”
The upper is 6" from the top of the sole to the ankle collar. If measured from the ground it is 7 3/8."
"Fit true" can mean snug to some and a little roomy to others. I wear 11.5 D and ordered 11.5 M. They were just right with medium weight socks and a Spenco insole, ( the insole they come with is thin and a bit stiff). The toe box is, IMO, just right in that I can easily wiggle my toes, but my feet do not move back or forward on steep terrain.
The total height is about 7 1/2". According to information listed under the product Overview/Specs:
Heel height: 1-1/2"
According to our fit team this item is running true to size.
Yes, I need to replace an aging pair of Vasque Sundowners. I was going to try the Tahoes.

“How about the size 9? How long is the insole? I wear a size 42.5 in LaSportiva. Just wondering what size i should get.”
The insoles that I put inside the boots are about 10.5 inches but they don't go to the end of the toe box. So, I'd say there's close to 11 inches of space for your foot inside the boot.
