I was hesitant on purchasing these boots because I could not find any information/reviews on them other than on AKU's website, but I took a risk and purchased after seeing other positive reviews of their hiking boots.

    Bought these in a size 10 (usually wear a size 9 1/2) and they fit like a glove. Very comfortable and needed no break in period. Bought a set of crampons which fit beautifully. These are awesome boots.

    I just second "Josh the mountaineer" 's review, wonderful boot, super durable and inventive construction, warm.
    except he said he'd be confident in their warmth down to -5 wind chill, i can attest to -9 wind chill with 1 thick pair of socks and i was still toasty. -20 and they'd be fine, without chemical heat. (for me at least, and i may have slightly warmer than average feet)
    I also never got a chance to break them in, and they were superbly comfy, only a slight pressure point (not a hot spot) at the end of the day on the top of my foot, haven't identified the cause yet...
    anywho, i highly recommend these

    I had been training for a couple of months for a climb of Mount Rainier and had been using borrowed La Sportiva boots (not the nepal or other popular model) in an effort to keep the cost of the trip down. They were heavy though and didn't fit well in the arch.

    A fellow climber let me try on his AKU boots 2 weeks before the trip and I was sold. They were comfortable and significantly lighter than the pair I had been training in. I bought them immediately and only got to spend a total of 3 hours in them before the trip. Not normally the smartest of decisions, but I was lucky and escaped without any blisters. They kept me warm and locked into my crampons. For the price, a great deal!! best spent money of the trip.

    I was hesitant on purchasing these boots because I could not find any information/reviews on them other than on AKU's website, but I took a risk and purchased after seeing other positive reviews of their hiking boots. First off, these are very robust, and are much larger than the Lowa Cevedale(non-insulated) mountaineering boots, which I purchased but returned due to sizing issue and rethinking of cold weather application. These are in the same category as the La Sportiva Nepal Evos and the Scarpa Mont Blanc, but with a coupon here on STP, you can purchase these boots for at least half the price of those boots.

    They are a tad on the heavy side (4lb 14oz), but honestly, they are so well balanced I never really felt that they were unnecessarily heavy. I recently climbed Mt. Adams in these and they performed great. Climbed well, descended well, my feet never got wet even when slogging through 3,700 ft of extremely wet snow on descent. The wind chill factor brought the temps down to 0-5+ degrees farenheit and these kept my feet relatively warm. I would feel pretty confident taking these down to -5 or -10 with chemical foot warmers with a liner sock. Kicking steps for 2500+ feet in ice, my toes got a little cold but that's to be expected with nearly any single-boot out there.

    Comfort wise, I'm almost ashamed to say it, but I received these two days prior to the trip and didn't have time to break them in. They felt so comfortable initially, I thought I'd take them on the trip anyway. They were very comfortable and I never got a hot spot, nor did I get shin bang or heel lift. The only thing I thought was kind of annoying is that the boot did't seem to stay tight. That also may be due, in part, to the fact that they weren't broken-in.

    Also, these work great with crampons, strap on or step-in. They are very stiff (carbon fiber sole) and I could definitely see these being sufficient for ice climbing.

    Conclusion: Why purchase Sportivas or Scarpas when you can purchase these things for half the price? Sure they're not the most popular brand but they definitely perform just as good and are of great quality. Plus the fact that they're made in Italy seemed like a nice confidence booster. I'm sure you won't be disappointed if you purchase these awesome boots!
