Alico Made in Italy Summit Hiking Boots - Leather (For Men)

Closeouts. Nestled within the Alps, the Dolomites are known for jagged peaks and deep crevasses that have challenged the climber's craft for centuries. Alico's Summit hiking boots are handcrafted by artisans in this awe-inspiring region and built for exploring rugged landscapes. The oil-tanned leather upper is water-resistant, and the leather lining and moisture-wicking insole reduce friction and blisters.

    Previously I went through 3 pairs of another European-made brand of boots that were extremely comfortable, but I ended up having to prematurely throw them away due to the glue on the soles falling apart. Tired of throwing away expensive boots, I decided to try a different brand with sewn-down soles. Did a lot of research, and found that Alico seems to be one of very few companies still making boots with sewn-down soles. Read a lot of reviews on each of the Alico models I was considering, and finally settled on the Summit.

    The boots arrived very quickly. I inserted my own arches bought from my foot doctor, put the boots on, thinking I would have to break them in gradually. But surprise of surprises, they felt surprisingly comfortable right out of the box, and I ended up wearing them all day long. I had ordered the wide size. These boots are shaped very generously around the toes, so I wear heavy socks with them. I wear them just about every day, all day long, and they are becoming even more comfortable as they mold to my feet. The leather is thick and of good quality, the tongue is well padded, they offer good support for my ankles, the soles grip very well, and they appear to be made very well. Plus, at some point in the future, these soles can be replaced and resown. I'm anticipating that these will be the last boots I need for a very long time! :-))))) I'm a very happy camper!!

    So far very happy with the the construction of these boots; they are extremely sturdy and well made. The leather lining is feels great and the craftsmanship is really excellent overall. (There only visible imperfection is a cut on the leather on the inside of the tongue.) I did have some difficulty with the sizing. My first pair in my normal size and D width were far too wide, even with thick socks. Sizing a half-size down, the boots are still a very little bit wide, but I don't want go down any further for length. If you have slightly narrow feet like me, I'd advise sizing down a half size.

    So far excellent boot. I was surprised there has been no break-in period. They fit perfectly right out of the box. Great pair of boots! I would recommend them to anyone.

    I tried to wear it immediately after it arrived. Even if you walk for a long time with a wonderful fitting like wrapping your legs you will not get tired at all.
    Because it is finished with NW Welt recipe, leather is thick and it is sturdy and perfect boots.

    I waited a while to write a review on these boots. I was originally on the fence about them and wasn't sure if they're what I wanted. I did what most people did; replaced the laces, replaced the insoles with superfeet green, and protected them with Obenauf's. Even after all of that I was still unsure. I wore them around the house a little, ran some errands in them, and did some light hiking. Still uncertain. I decided to take them to Big Bend National Park for my Natural History of Bats course for a real test of quality. During the first few hikes they hurt my feet a bit. But as the days passed, I noticed my feet didn't hurt anymore. I also noticed how well they worked on the rocky terrain, from sharp slate to worn down sandstone. And then the flash flood hit. We were on the road right outside of the Basin and had to dig out a path from all of the silt, rocks and mud pushed there by the flood waters. I was up to my ankles in water and mud and didn't feel my feet get wet or dirty at all. After we got home from the trip, I cleaned them and reapplied some obenaufs. I'd say they look and feel better than when I first got them. I think they'll give me a lot of comfort and durability for a long time. And those pictures are from AFTER the flash flood.
