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.
Excellent ankle and insole foot support: Very comfortable out of the box. I'm not a big fan of EVA foam midsoles in boots, but it is noticeably lighter and requires virtually no break in. On sizing, 10.5D/M is my running shoe/true to size. Online reviews have mentioned that UK sizes fit true. Using my Lowas for reference(EU 44/UK 9.5) and the AKU size chart, the size 10 I purchased fits perfectly. Overall I would say the Aku Pilgrim is almost as comfortable as the Lowa Camino, but is much more affordable(and less maintenance).
Boot is comfortable and supportive took a week or so for top part near ankle to break in but thats to be expected. Waterproof works has kept my feet dry durring wet fall weather
