This boot is similar if not identical to a boot AKU developed for the U.S. Navy Seals, except for the color which was all gray. I see this boot as multi- terrain with an emphasis on rocky terrain, sort of a high top approach shoe, but the shoe is actually quite good for anything short of backpacking... Read More

    This boot is similar if not identical to a boot AKU developed for the U.S. Navy Seals, except for the color which was all gray. I see this boot as multi- terrain with an emphasis on rocky terrain, sort of a high top approach shoe, but the shoe is actually quite good for anything short of backpacking with heavy loads. I imagine these boots would be good in the rocky deserts of Utah and the Southwest. The only weakness is they are a little slippery in wet conditions and not the best tread for snowy conditions, and I don't know if you could waterproof them, but this is a summer boot anyway in my opinion. I could see this boot being used as a mountaineering boot in rocky but dry conditions. All in all a very light weight boot that's well made and comfortable with a snug fit like an approach shoe. I bought my usual size, but have worn a slightly lighter weight sock than usual and the shoe is still very comfortable. An excellent boot and very unique.

    Great boot for urban and rural movements. This boot provides good traction on all types of terrain in Iraq. The boot also has a good solid toe cap.

    Don't buy these as hikers...they have little to no forefoot cushioning. They are a high-top approach shoe.
