Fantastic Overall Quality

When they arrived, i was skeptical about the width as the soles were pretty narrow but they fit wide feet spectacularly. Great comfort, amazing durability and the reinforced toe cap is a nice touch. Ill be getting more in the years to come. Id even put them on the same craftsmanship level as Lowa/Hanwag at significantly less cost. Great overall boot

First AKU boot and will definitely not be the last.

Somehow these boots can do it all. The comfort of an everyday shoe with the technical aspects of a trail boot. My feet are never too hot, but on the flip side, I feel I can easily stretch these to be a three-season boot. This is my first AKU boot, but will definitely not be my last. I see myself buying another set of Pilgrims when these ones wear out, as well as others from the AKU lineup.

Additional note: These fit true to the Euro size.


Well made boots, comfortable and durable for use in the military
