HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
We create our footwear using lasts based on real feet. Because of this we make it easy to find your perfect fit.
1st. Step onto a piece of paper and mark just behind your heel and in front of your longest toe.
2nd. Do this for both feet and then measure the centimeters between these lines. This measurement is your Mondopoint.
3rd. Using the measurement from your longest foot find your correlating size below.
My boyfriend put these on and they fit like a glove. They are very well made and his little grandson really liked his red laces.
For some reason I have lost 2 very thorough reviews just before finishing. I am going to keep it short.
This is my second pair of AKU boots. Why? Because the first pair were so good I wouldn't settle for anything less. My second pair, Alterras, are better.
The boots are true to the claim they are waterproof. Shallow streams and rain=dry feet. They breath better than any boot I have owned. The ELICA system is real. The tread design distributes the load on the soles of my feet beautifully. I experience far less foot fatigue. The lugs offer great bite ascending softer trails. The lateral and heel to toe firmness are fantastic on uneven terrain. Great support. The grip is very good.
Another reviewer spoke of ankle support. It is very, very good. The heel is well supported and the top of the boot gives just the right amount to protect one's knees.
I am sure I left something out but here are 2 more thoughts. AKU takes highest quality very seriously, it is evident immediately. They also offer the best customer service I have dealt with.
LOVE THESE BOOTS!
It is apparent that these boots are well crafted and aren't your ordinary boot. They are designed to take a beating and will leave your feet feeling untouched by the environment, even if its wet. I used these boots to hit the San Juan Mountains in Colorado and felt secure and protected on every adventure. AKU boots have a unique feel and comfort, which I think is due to the ELICA Technology.
