rated 5 of 5 stars Strong, reliable, durable, comfortable backpacking boot. Finally, a dependable full leather boot that can be re-soled for "lifetime" use. Interior glove leather cradles the foot and ankle. Footbed needs a Superfeet (black) upgrade, but still works. The Italian Alico brand boots are imported by Sierra Trading Post, and sold through their website and storefronts. Handmade in the Dolomites, by craftsmen. The Summits are pretty stiff straight out of the box, but all good boots are. They break in fast… Full review

rated 5 of 5 stars These boots are the backpacking boots on the market. Structural superiority and comfort. Old style Italian craftsmanship. A great boot for backpacking and mountaineering.

I purchased online and went with my normal 9.5, and these fit me very well. There is enough room in the toe-box… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Classic leather boot. Alico seems not to be phased by the countless companies that moved their manufacturing to China, Thailand, etc and changed the way they made their boots.

They are a tad on the heavy side if you are not used to it, but that's what you are getting with this style of boot. I'd definitely recommend these… Full review
