I have received my Alico Summits about a week ago. Am very happy with the quality of the boot and even more happy with STP service. Thanks guys
These are an incredibly rigid boot and surprisingly light weight for there build and style.
Fit is accurate and almost identical to my outgoing Scarpa Nangpa
There are absolutely no high tech materials designed to fail in 1 seasons worth of wear. Nothing but leather, stitched sole and quality Italian craftsmanship. This does mean that you'll have to sacrifice a little comfort compared to a modern style of hiking boot. They feel like boots, not sneakers! With this comes fantastic sense of safety and security.
I hike and hunt in very harsh, South Australian conditions and have never managed to get more than about thirteen months out of a pair of hiking boots! Even if the uppers have held up, the soles wear out and haven't been repairable.
This is where the Alico steps in.
I'm confident that the soles will last a long time and when they do kick it, I can have them replaced.
There is no doubt that the leather uppers will last me years to come too and having a leather lining means a great life span too.
So far I have taken them out for three treks at approximately 8km to 10km each.
Not a single blister but the break in is tough on your feet so keep those toe nails short and the socks thick for the first few treks.
Having said that though, the Summits are already starting to free up.
I am looking forward to many years of service and reliability.
Thanks STP
