Started wearing right away. Comfortable right out of the box. Got my usual size,fit was right on. Looking forward to put these boots through their paces.
I am an outdoor hunting and fishing guide. I bought these boots expecting a durable and well built boot. They are excellently built and very firm. They are great for deep backpacking trips or heavy pack outs.
However, they are incredibly heavy... Much more heavy then their main competitions similar line of boot. If I was the designers at AKU I would work very hard to drop some weight off these clunkers.
If considering buying these boots, please acknowledge you will be surprised by the weight of the boot, and on long journeys you will feel the weight immediately when on the trail and really start to hurt after 2-3 km. Your hip flexors will beg you for a lighter pair.
These are great boots. Extremely well made and very true to size with adequate width for a medium wide foot. They hold up very well to off-trail and wet hiking with heavy loads. They are my go to elk hunting boots and are better than anything else I've tried--Hanwag, Zamberland, Scarpa, Asolo, Lowa, etc. My complaint is that for some reason all the Aku boots I've bought underreport the weight by about 20%. These Superalp NBK boots in a size 45 are ~950 g each, when advertised at 700g. That's a big difference on the foot when hiking Maybe they use the smallest women's size 35 as their representative weight? Whatever the case, they need to start reporting more representative weights, like in an average/median men's size of 42-43.
