Verified Buyer Reviewed by Steve from Foxboro from Massachusetts on Sunday, April 2, 2017
I bought these boots because I have had a pair of alico boots for 21 years. I have resolved them twice because I like them that much. The leather is high quality stuff that does not fall apart. The summits are good fitting boots for my feet. I have narrow heels and a wide forefoot, and plantar fasciitis. The midsole and sole are very supportive and protect my arches from pointy rocks in the trail. The uppers wrap around my ankles and provide great support on rocky trails that would twist in a lesser boot. Great for backpacking with a heavy load. The leather lining is a nice change from flimsy liners in other boots that wear off over the years of use. I said years, because they last a long time. The vibram soles provide great grip on rocks that other boots just slide off. They give you confidence in your foot placement, knowing they will stay where you put them. The sole doesn't twist under your foot on uneven terrain, but it does flex just under the ball of your foot for a good stride without the Frankenstein walk from mountaineering boots. Break in takes a little while, not bad, so far 3 weekends of wet weather hiking and the creases are starting to show up. No blisters on my feet, no numb toespecially, no foot pain from 5 to 7 mile hikes. If you are looking for a boot that lasts, buy these boots. Run true to size, wide is wide and comfortable.
