Received the boots a few weeks ago and, so far, I am quite impressed. On the positive side, they appear to be quite well-constructed, comfortable right out of the box, and good-looking. I wear a US 12.5 and these fit perfectly with the thick socks I normally wear with boots. Only surprise was that they shipped from Canada (via Canada Post) and had to clear customs before the USPS delivered them to my home. Wasn't expecting that, but it's not a big deal. I keep boots for a long time. Last pair were a great set of Timberlands but couldn't find an equivalent pair like them. These Aku boots were the ones I chose to go the next decade. I suspect they'll make it.
I’ve had this boot for about four years maybe more. They’re very comfortable and have a great stride when walking. I wish they were a little bit warmer as I do like to wear them just as get around boots in the winter. They’re not meant for really cold days but I live in Vermont and they are certainly OK for just running around town on a cold day. I do wish the bottom I had a little bit more of a toothy grip but again they are not meant to be a snow boot necessarily.
I would say they are more spring :summer /fall boots.
I would recommend them however and I have to say that they are rocksolid and I have never so much is come unglued or have I lost any metal. Definitely worth the money.
Purchased these looking for an all-purpose hiker that I could also wear day-to-day if I wanted to. Fit great right away with little time needed to break them in.
I would call these a 3 season boot. While I an layer socks to keep my feet warm in sub-zero temperatures, the sole gets hard in the cold which can compromise grip.
Despite that, top marks for these boots.
