Backcountry Boot

rated 4 of 5 stars Italian built backpacking boot. Water resistant and true to size. Provides excellent ankle protection and the stiff sole assists when traveling across rocky terrain. I have terrible ankles, always have. I am just getting back into backpacking and wanted a pair of boots that provided good support, were water resistant, looked OK, would last, and wouldn't break the bank. These things deliver. 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. Seem to have a strong devotion to traditional craftsmanship. These are a very strong, very heavy durable and good looking boot. There aren't too many boots made like these anymore. 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


rated 4.5 of 5 stars It's a modern version of the old '70s-'80s style of hiking boot. I don't know about you, but for me a good sturdy boot just makes me feel invincible. When things get tough you have to be able to depend on your gear. This is that kind of boot. It is very stiff at first, but just like the boots of the past once you break it in to your foot there is nothing more comfortable. That's when you are confident that through thick or thin, creek or mountain, the boot is not going to let you down halfway to… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Durability, trail traction, and load bearing ability. My buddy builds Web pages for STP, so naturally he was my go-to guy for hiking boots. And his choice for me was this set of Alicos. I loved um right out of the gate. For me at 200 lbs, the weight didn't matter too much. I knew immediately by the construction that they could withstand my 50+lbs pack and my Labradors pulling me down the trail just fine. And 6 years later they still go with me on every trip I take. Just oil um and dry um two times… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars An extremely durable, stiff, old school hiking boot that will last several years of hard use. I have a moderately wide foot and wear a size 11 to size 12, and if possible I prefer a wide width shoe. I bought the 11 W size in the Summit. They seem to run "true to size." The first thing you'll notice about the Summit is the heft—due to the Vibram rubber sole, steel shank, and all leather construction. The sole is a very durable, hard rubber that wears like iron. The downsides are that traction in… Full review
