    AKU shoes tend to be narrow fitting. These shoes are pretty stiff right out of the box and are definitely built for hiking and scrambling up rocky terrain. Awesome shoes. Looking forward to trying to destroy them.

    These are my first pair of AKU's, and I was pretty impressed with the quality right out of the box. Great attention to detail with the workmanship and stitching. A nice insole that is of decent quality and really does a good job of supporting the arch and cupping the heal. The outsole is rugged with a small flat area near the toe for smearing. I believe that I've seen this sole on Asolo's approach shoes in the past as well. An extremely firm midsole - they remind me of the midsole on my Vasque M-finity mountaineering boots. They were kind of heavy and really stiff right out of the box, but are breaking in nicely. After 2 weeks, I have only had a chance to take them to the crag twice, but I was truly impressed both times. Not only did they provide ample support while hiking in with a good bit of heavy gear on poorly maintained trails in Rocksylvania, they turned out to be sweet little climbers on 5.6 and 5.7 routes. Great shoe for guiding or hiking in areas that require a lot of scrambling.
