I purchased these for ruck marches off duty. The sizing is consistent with other Aku products (KS Leight, NS 564). Very light, supportive, and has a pull tab for quick lacing. I can’t speak to durability, but seem solidly built. After using these, I’ll be buying Pilgrims for my next patrol boot.
Outstanding in my new boots.
Great boot that fits comfortably right out of the box. Love the kangaroo pouch for the laces. Still trying to figure out best way to tuck laces in. Boot fits a tad tighter than my Combat Pilgrim, but these are very agile. Have not put them to the full test yet.
