Love these. Very comfortable. A little heavier than runners but great for serious terrain. I tried to buy another but they were out.
Several months ago I replaced other, older boots with a pair of Alterra GTX that I have loved for every outdoor use one can imagine. But I wanted a low top outdoor shoe that could do it all and be cooler with the onset of summer. These Selvatica GTX shoes have a stable, grippy sensation and are so comfortable that I wear them often when I run errands. I really thought I would never find a worthy successor to the older Vasque (when they were still handmade in Italy) hiking lineup that I owned for many, many years. Fortunately, AKU must have been listening to hikers everywhere. They succeeded. Thank you Mike S
I really like the shoes and they are very comfortable. I will definently plan on buying the Selvatica Tactical Mid GTX once my current boots wear out.
The only negative comment is the time it took for me to receive the shoes. I am not sure if it was the shipping company, customs, or both. I have ordered items from overseas and they came in much faster.
With this in mind I will factor the shipping length so that I can get the boots in when I need them.
