I just purchased a pair of Alico Ultra and a pair of the Alico Wind River hiking boots to do a side by side comparison in the woods.
I ordered both in size 10.5. My street shoe is a 9.5. I like the extra room for a heavy wool sock, added insole and inevitable shrinking of the leather over time.

    Very well made boots. But it's small. I usually wear 11US. Ordered 11.5US and that's not ok for me ;(
    It seems 12 or 12.5 will be ok.
    Insoles are very thin and need replacement.

    These are well made boots and STP price can't be beat. However for me the toe box just seemed to large with to much space for my foot to slid around in. Also the ankle area seemed overly spacious even when I had the boot laces cinched all the way down. Although I really wanted to keep them I felt the extra space in the toe box would be a problem on steep decents while hiking on some of the more challenging areas I hike.

    Well appointed boot. Excellent feel and fit. Break in period was over before the first 5 mile hike. Comfort from start

    So, initial impression was really good. Quality leather, seemed well made, even comfortable. Except that the right boot had a wierd hump in the sole that made pressure points in the ball of my foot and actually made the boot really unstable. Had to return and opted for refund. Quality and quality control are two different animals.

Question & Answer

    • The two boots are comparable in terms of ankle support, stability, and traction. The Summits are a bit "richer" in that they are leather lined as opposed to the Ultra's cloth lining. I think the Ultra's are a bit more comfortable walking on the flat because they have a built-in roll to the forward gait. The Ultra's also have a full rand whereas the Summits have no rand. I hiked the North Carolina mountains photographing the waterfalls in the Summits and am really pleased with their performance. I haven't tested the Ultras much yet. I bought them to hike the Rockies in Colorado in September. I expect I will be pleased. Why did I switch from Summits to Ultras? I now have to wear orthotics and had to go up a full size in the boots I wear to accommodate the orthotics. Sierra Trading post did not have the size I needed in the Summits, but they did in the Ultras.

    • I have not used them since I purchased them. They fit fine when I tried them, however I won't be using them in Pittsburgh until winter. No mountains here. When I do visit my daughter who lives in Boulder my hiking shoe is usually a pair of Keens mesh walking shoes to do 14ers. Sorry not to be able to answer your question but, I doubt my walking/hiking in Pittsburgh will ever test these boots to their max. Purchased mostly for cold and snow protection.

    • I don't know what an Italian 11 is, but I typically wear a 10.5-11 American (depending on the brand), and an 11.5 of this boot fits with room for a pair of thick wool socks.

    • I have two pair of Alico hiking boots, including the Ultra. Both pair are marked in American sizes.

    • Although these boots are American sized, they have very thin insoles. If you replace them with thicker insoles you may want to go up by one-half size, and then adjust the size with the thickness of your socks. I apologize for not including this information in my original answer.

    • All sizing on our website is in US sizes unless otherwise indicated on the specific product page.
