Quality boots again.

These are lighter than most and do not require break in. I’m a big fan of AKU boots and all have their strengths. I do irrigation service and walk in wet grass all day. My feet are always dry and never any blisters or rubbing. Thanks again for the quality boots.

Slope Original GTX

Looking forward this fall to hike in these hiking boots. Quality is great. Except left front of boot where my big toe touches is a crease in the fabric, trying to work it out and hopefully with a moderate thickness of socks it'll smooth out.otherwise great boots.Light and supportive and true sizing.

Surprisingly Comfortable and Light

I must preface this review by stating that I have only worn these boots on a singular five mile hike. Approach this review with this in mind. The boots are exceptionally comfortable. I did add in gel insoles due to my own knee issues requiring me to have as much cushion underfoot as possible. The boots required no break in period and gave me no blisters on my first hike with them. They are very lightweight, almost as light as my New Balance sneakers which was a real shock. They seem to provide enough support even for backpacking. I did a 14 mile backpacking trek in Lowas m and these Aku Slopes would be even better performers. Great stuff!
