Top Quality at Bargain Price

Reviewed by Doug from Knoxville, TN on Friday, September 28, 2012
After reading the great reviews, I decided to pull the trigger while my size was still available. The quality and craftsmanship is wonderful. There was not a blemish on the beautiful full-grain leather, and the boots were comfortable out of the box.

The Alico Summit's are definitely heavy, but there's also no cheap plastic cushioning materials or glued soles that will fail after a few years.

It takes about 4 days of wearing every day to break them in properly, but now they fit like a glove. I especially like the soft leather liner and locking eyelets for the laces. The ankle area also has plenty of padding and a cup design to keep the ankle from slipping.

I searched long and hard to find another hand-made boot with all of the features of the Alico Summit, and found none, even at double the price. Get a pair while still available.
