The boots are great, very high quality, very comfortable and even quite stylish. But the ankle lace locks are a bit odd. I don't think they're necessary and they get in the way of speed lacing the boot. 1000s of other boots don't have them and the majority of Aku boots don't have them. So I'm at a loss for why they're included. Maybe it's a special forces thing? Otherwise, amazing boots.
I am a construction worker an avid outdoorsman.
These may be the finest constructed boots I have ever purchased. I had a great experience dealing with AKU, Rick was very helpful. This is a top-notch company. I will be purchasing more footwear from them in the future.
These are the most overbuilt, while maintaining comfort, boots I've ever owned. They also look amazing and I receive questions about them every time I wear them.
