Overall Rating: 4.5 Stars: Hidden Minus Points: The Devil in the Details

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Peter L. from Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 15, 2016
First, the plus points:
-one piece leather is top notch
-relatively soft leather for thick layer boots with leather lining
-D rings are convenient
-heel stayed in place
Now, the minus points:
-the insole for the boot was short and narrow considering I ordered a wide---the insole was moving around in the boot
-for a wide boot I think the foot bed should have been wider, once the replaceable insole was removed out of the boot and stood upon, my wide foot barely fit within the edges
-clearly, it is a wide boot; however, it seems to me all that Alico did was add more leather in the width---as a result, I had to tighten the laces so tight that the leather area in front of the first set of D-rings bulged upwardly. Perhaps Alico should insert what width it is in the description (for example: E, EE, EEE or EEEE)

I wear wide shoes, in athletic shoes I prefer to buy wide; in dress shoes I prefer to buy E or EE. It is my gues these wide boots were EEE or EEEE.

Hey, Alico and Sierra Trading Post, please look into these issues (at least fix the simple problem such as replacing the regular insole with a proper fitting wide fitting insole. I returned the Summit boot, and in it's place I ordered the Summit Light and the Summit Belluno. I will try my luck with these.
