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.

    I have been buying these boots repeatedly for years. When I wear out one I buy another. They break in so easily. I'm not sure I have ever had a blister. That is why I keep coming back. I wear these for my landscaping work. I have purchased the Guide version of this boot before which is much stiffer. If you need more support that is the one I would get, but know that it will take some time to break in.

    I bought three pair of mid-weight hiking boots, expected to pick the best made, best-fitting pair and return the other two. In the end, I chose these boots over Merrill and Asolo. I wear an 11 Wide and the Merrill (beautiful!) weren't wide enough and the Asolo's didn't seem to be up to the Alico's build quality.

    Why did I buy a second pair? Well, I have had these boots for a year and hike weekly with a 30-40 pound pack. Excellent woods boots! However, I just spent 10-days camping in the high deserts of north-western Nevada and these boots were incredible. Snow, rain, mud--all good. Super comfy, laughed at the razor-sharp shale that sliced TWO of my SUV's tires. Came home, washed them, treated them and they look almost factory-fresh. These boots are remarkable! Buy them, but buy two pair because I think Sierra is the only distributor and who knows how long availability will last.

    Got these a few weeks ago! Fit well and feel good when you get them broke in. I unfortunately scuffed the toes early on. I did talk to the Sierra customer service people for recommendations for leather care/water-proofing. What I used works fine!

    I love these Old school boots. These are very well-made with full leather lining. I think my last pair lasted about a decade.

    The Alico Summit is the perfect backpacking boot for hikers seeking a robust traditional boot suitable for rough terrain and heavy packs.This is not the boot for “fastpackers” or ultralight PCT through-hikers.

    Like Alico’s Tahoe, which I also own, the Summit features a one-piece full grain leather upper, Vibram sole, and stitch-down construction. As a result the boot is resolable and should last a lifetime with proper care. (I recommend Nikwax products.)

    What distinguishes the Summit from the Tahoe is its use of the thicker Vibram Montagna sole vs the Tahoes’s Roccia sole. Both are proven soles which give good grip on a variety of terrain. The Summit’s upper is also higher, giving better ankle support, especially when combined with its lacing system that allows the lower laces to be comfortably loose while cinching the upper laces tightly around the ankle. The Summit also features a glove leather lining instead of the Tahoe’s knit fabric lining, further contributing to the boot’s durability and comfort.

    Alico’s line of stitch-down hiking boots offer superb value. I plan to buy the Super Guide next for three-season mountaineering. In this age of disposable fabric and Gore-tex boots, it’s possible traditional leather boots will disappear from the market forever, so get yours while you can.

  • “My feet (without socks) are 29,4 cm long and of average width (D) : should I take size 12 or size 13 ? M or W ? Thanks !”
    Asked by Little Bard from Paris on 5/20/2018 12:18:47 PM
    • I would guess you are an 11.5 or 12 Medium. If the boot is too small you will be unable to wear it. If it is too big, you can probably make up the slack with a thick sock. If you want to save time, order a few different sizes and send back the ones that do not fit. Try them on with the socks that you plan on using. As long as you wear them strictly indoors and leave the tags on and save all the packaging STP is great on returns.

    • My boots are size 13 (US), which is also size 12 (UK), or size 47 (EU). When I use a metric scale I'm between 28 and 28.5 cm. I suggest you have your foot measured at a store, try on various boots, and pick the size that feels good to you. You will most likely be a 1/2 size larger than me, or 13 1/2. But they may not have 1/2 sizes after 13 (US).

    • My first pair received didn't fit, so I estimated how to adjust the size and width, which for me was keep the same width and increase the size by 1/2 size. The new pair arrived, and I'm breaking them in for the last couple months. So far, so good.
      These are stiff boots, I'm doing 2 hour hikes, done about 6 hikes so far, still breaking the boots in, get better each each hike.

    • I would go up a size. I did and I’m glad. I can see from reviews that a lot of folks find these true to size but I found them a bit short. The last thing you want is to be banging the end of your nails on descents. That being said, the toebox is roomy width wise. I took a size up but stuck with a M width.

  • “There isn't much for women to chose from in this type of boot. How do you size for a woman. I wear between a 9 1/2 and 10 in women's boots and never purchased hiking boots before. These got great reviews and want to try them.”
    Asked by Yogibear from texas on 5/8/2018 9:08:49 AM
    • My wife wears a 8 1/2! She bought the men's 7, and it fits fine! She went to a store to check sizes. Since no women 8 1/2, she tried on a couple different boots for men that are 7's. Worked for her! PS - she got the Tahoe! A little lower on the angle than the Summit.

    • There is a 1.5 size difference length. width is same. so buy men's boots smaller to get women's sizes. 10 - 1.5 = 8.5. 9.5 - 1.5 = 8.0. So you might be looking at men's boots in the 8.0 to 8.5 range. Depending on thickness of your socks you can adjust if you get too big of a boot, but if you are too small of a boot then you are out of luck. Also - UK sizing is different than USA sizing. Now i would think that women's heels tend to usually run more narrow than men's, so if your heels look narrow they might slip in a wide boot, go for a medium width if given a choice. In general, until you are familiar with a brand's last, ordering online you should be prepared for a lot of incorrect fits. STP has a great return policy which you probably will need. Good Luck. https://www.shiekhshoes.com/t-SizeChart.aspx

    • Hi Yogibear, for me it was trial and error. From my findings, the boots runs true to size. Go to a department store and have your foot measure, or you can do it at home with socks on and using guide from one of the website for boots sizing, such as:
      https://www.customfit.me/BootSizeGuide

      That is the website I use to get my boot size.
      I think that would give you a more correct sizing. When you try on the boots, make sure the length is right, the width needs to be a little snug as the boots will widen a little after breaking in.
      To exchange for another boots is $2.95, it's not that bad. Remember to use SHIP89 coupon code.

    • Hmm. The size 10 men’s was too short for my normal men’s 10.

      The return size 10 1/2 fit perfect for my 10 men’s (I’m 10 men’s in all my other shoes).

      My guess a men’s 10 would thus be if anything just right for a woman’s 10 or it might be a fraction too big.

      That’s my best guess.

      These boots I’ve taken on 5-6 one hour hikes and still breaking them in and they are stiff but comfortable.

      Feel better each hike.

      I’m a narrow medium width and the 10 1/2 mediums suit my narrowish foot fine.

      They are made to really give your ankles strength carrying a full pack and do hours of trudging. For days at a time.

      I like the stiff but comfortable support.

      If avg women’s is 1/2 size below same number for men’s then the sizing in medium of these if I were you give the same men’s size as yours a try and just return and adjust. Their return policy I found easy and fast.

    Asked by Reeves from San Angelo, TX on 3/23/2018 10:35:47 PM
    • Yes. These boots are heavy duty. The leather is thick and sturdy. Beefy old school vibram soles that can be resoled by any competent cobbler. If I was working wear I needed boots everyday, I'd be wearing these.

    • I'd use them everyday, personally, no problem. I bought them thinking if I still worked on the commune farm, these'd be perfect for all the daily hiking around the farm I used to do. Heavy trenching/shoveling all day shoveling, I'd be careful with, though, since these are for walking while carrying loads like a pack or stuff, on uneven terrain, like hiking. So shoveling might damage them, but for all the boots I tried for shoveling, these'd work, but I'd hate to use them for trench working. But above ground chores on a farm, they'd be overkill.

  • “Please give me the dimensions of this shoe: total length, toe box width, ball of foot width, and heel-to-top of boot height. Thanks!”
    Asked by David from Tennessee on 3/10/2018 1:05:21 PM
    • I bought a 10D. Too small for my 10 foot, I have a narrow-ish foot, the width was great. The length of the 10 was a tab too short.

      I bought the 10 1/2D and that fit my narrowish 10 foot perfectly.

      If you are a wider than normal foot, you might wish to go for their W width. And like I said, their 10 was too short for my 10 foot, but their 10.5 works perfectly for me.

      I don't know how to measure for your question. Would that be inside dimensions or outside? Is that done with special shoe store measuring equipment?
