The AKU Alpen II GTX Boots are made with high quality waterproof full grain leather. They are supportive and stiff for good stability on uneven ground. Highly recommended !
Ready to go right out of the box. No break in necessary. Second time wearing them did a 9 mile hike up Mt Chocorau , NH. No problems at all. Very good grip on slab rock , handled lots of loose rocks with great ankle support. My first pair lasted around 25 years and lots of miles . Would definitely recommend these boots .
Rugged, comfortable, great grip, water proof/resistant = reliable. Great boots for outdoor professionals or demanding outdoor enthusiasts.
