    Yesterday I wore these on a VERY much Winter hike/climb up Mt. Washington in NH. Only the second time wearing them. First was at my daughters
    ski jumping practice in single digit temps for about two hours. So no break in period, period. The temps were below zero the entire time and -20 at the summit. I wore a liner sock and a pair of heavy sub zero socks and crampons most of the way. The climb was near vertical in some places for several hundred feet. Never once did my feet get cold, my toes had plenty of room and the grip on snow and ice was quite good even before the crampons went on. I wore a paid of Kahtoola K-10 crampons, which are pretty flexible. The stiffness of the boots was perfect for what I was doing. I was wary of these boots due to the low price, but am very impressed with them. I usually wear a 10 1/2 but got these in an 11 and they fit perfect. I got a little heel slip on my right foot but that was my own fault as I let the laces get loose and it was just to stinking cold at the summit to worry about it.
    I recommend these very highly.

    Bought these heavier boots to use snowshoeing, but had already bought a lighter pair of AKU boots for a backpacking trip earlier in the year and bought a second pair of those because I liked them so much. Right out of the box, the Terrealte boots fit very comfortably, and while I have only been able to walk for an hour at a time in these, they do not seem likely to cause a problem with blisters, and best of all the kept my feet warm in single digit temps.

    Awesome winter boot. I am a horse farmer and I am on my feet all day, working in the fields, trails, barn, on the tractor and on a horse. These boots are ideal for my work. They are light, supportive, warm and breath easily. They are supper easy to take on and off. They easily fit in the stirrups in an english saddle. They are supportive without being stiff. Zero break in, take out of the box comfortable. Im in love with AKU boots and this boots is incredible.

    The boot is top notch construction but in my case the boots were not true to size but this is the case w many Italian boot manufacturers as everyone knows

    I called and emailed aku about the issue but got mininimal info at best. I wear a 11.5 usa in zamberlan and a 11 in the aku boots here were slightly larger

    when measuring the sole. so my experience is the aku montagnards and terrealte boots are a great build boot but sizing was tricky. I would give 5

    stars if not for sizing issue. I will tell you I called the folks at lowa because I was considering the lowa cevedale gtx boot . the staff at lowa top notch great

    folks. the Aku boots are very stiff w lots of support great boot but get that sizing figured out.......the width seems to be perfect like my zamberlans.

    Used them to climb Mount Rainier, didn't require too much breakin. Crampon compatible. Also blistered a bit but that was probably because I didn't tie the shoes tight enough. Would recommend.

    Tried Asolo & Lowa & finally kept this... most comfortable & don't pinch on the top of the foot. Asolo lack in workmanship & Lowa just don't fit my feet. I am not certain about the longevity of the boots but overall workmanship looks fine, comparable to Lowa. Like the solid plastic footbed all around instead of foam for some other boots. Still expensive but worth the purchase!

    BTW I couldn't find any review for AKU... but this shoes would make the cut.
