Reviewed by Gardenkeeper from Washington on Sunday, March 30, 2014Good quality boot but runs big and is better for a wide foot. I usually wear a 9.5 or 10 in hiking boots depending on company and boot style. I ordered a 10 in this boot and had to exchange for a 9.5. The 9.5 fit was just ok...for me the boot was still too wide. I was looking for a backpacking boot but still thought these were too heavy for me (age 52 in pretty good shape). Bottom line: I chose an Asolo boot that fits a narrow foot better and is just a little lighter.

Reviewed by AlwaysH2Oproof from Georgia on Monday, February 17, 2014Great support and comfort from the first time I put them on. I have been wearing around the house to "break in" but no issues. Fit is just right, I normally order a 10 but per some other reviews- I ordered a 9.5 womens. Great fit with thick socks and I love the neoprene ankle area at the back pull up strap.
Reviewed by Pyrola asarifolia from Montana on Tuesday, February 11, 2014I hike off trail a lot for my job so I wanted to get durable boots that could handle getting scratched by branches and rocks. I ordered these boots because I like the wide rubber rand that wraps up and over the toe. I've seen a lot of boots where the rand starts peeling off of the leather because the rand does not wrap all the way over the toe, but these boots don't look like they will do that.
I would NOT order a half size smaller. I usually wear a 37 (size 6) and these fit great, maybe even a tiny bit tight. I also ordered the 6.5 in a slightly different version (the AKU Cresta Weg) and I had a hard time deciding which fit I liked better.
I like the stretch collar on the back because the boot feels like it has a lower cuff and allows for more movement, especially when hiking uphill, but I think it should keep debris out of the boot pretty well.
These boots seem very well constructed with a burly sole. I haven't hiked in them yet, but I'm excited to try them out and I hope they last!
Reviewed by Ya from Boulder,CO on Monday, January 13, 2014I usually wear a 9 or 9.5 and the 9.5 fits like a dream in these boots!
I have high arches and slightly wide feet, it is not easy to find hiking boots that feel good, but the AKU fit is wonderful for me.
Heavy duty boots that feel great, can't beat that.
Reviewed by Brad from CT on Monday, November 4, 2013Ordered a 1/2 size down as the description said, but the toe box was very tight---'not sure whether an additional half size would have helped and we didn't have time to figure that out, so we sent them back and ordered something else It's unfortunate, because they look like nicely built boot.
