I Love these boots so comfortable the second I put them on , the second pair of AKU Boots & not the last :)
This is my first pair of AKU. I have to say that I am going to be buying more of these boots.
I was looking for a basic hiking boot with enough support and space to accomodate my feet (EE). After using the boots for about two weeks, I’m extremely satisfay with this AKU boots. The are light and have support at the same time, allowing me to easily walk on trails and snow (up tp 2 hours no complaints) and they are indeed water proof. I particularly like the rubberized edge that protects from water/salt/etc the upper suede leather are.
Will consider buying them again in the future. I would like to see some of the backpaking boots with the rubberized band as well.
