This is my 3rd pair of Spider approach boots. I also had the Pilgrims. AKU has always been my favorite boot. Comfortable right out of the box, great craftsmanship and materials.
Very light weight but still feel like the provide pretty good support for a lower cut boot. Very breathable and they drain and dry incredibly quickly. I am on my second pair and use them as a summer duty boot seeing both urban and bush.
I've just started to use the 564 Spider boots and they've prompted a greater appreciation for AKU's tactical line. I wear a similar pair of AKU's as my usual go-around boots and I've worn them for everything from stacking wood to sitting for deer. Tactical boots aren't just for military or law enforcement. When you need to throw on a pair of boots and go recover your dog who's on a neighborhood walkabout or smash ice dams off the roof, a good pair of tactical boots can't be beaten. These fit securely, have excellent traction and stability, and are more durable than other footwear options. From a few wearings, it's clear these boots have all the features I expect from AKU's tactical line, but in a lighter and more precise fit.
