Bought these for a trip to the Dolomites, where I wanted a light hiker with some potential for bouldering. After 4 break-in hikes I am totally sold on these. The dual lace is great for my narrower feet: it allows me to cinch up the front when needed, or loosen. It's critical that you understand Aku sizing, however. The US sizes are very deceptive--they run roughly one size large at my size (my normal 8 mens was way too large). If you follow the Euro sizes you will get a more accurate reading, although even that may run a little large. It's unfortunate so few retailers carry this in the US, and REI doesn't carry sizes smaller than 8.
Follow the minus half-size recommendation for a snugly fit. I sticked to my regular size for better comfort with my orthosis. As usual, good construction, quality material, smart design… It’s my fourth AKU pair of shoes, and I've never looked elsewhere.
I’ve only had them for a month now but I’m very happy with these shoes! They are just the right amount of stiff while still being able to feel the ground below you. Very comfy, perfect for hiking.
