Reviewed by AA on the move from Colorado on Saturday, March 16, 2013I had never heard of AKU before and was really looking at Asolo to replace existing Asolo boots. The tread of the Aku is a solid Vibram sole and looks like it will perform better than my current Asolo. I wore these to travel to AK in February with no wear-in and my feet were comfortable , warm and dry.. I look forward to wearing these for hikes come summer. in the Rockies.
Reviewed by Long Dist. Hiker from Cuchara, Co on Monday, January 28, 2013I purchased these boots to wear on a Pilgrimage across Spain, the Camino de Santiago. I hiked 500 miles for 34 consecutive days with a pack on while wearing these boots. Though I gave them a good break in period, they required none and I got Zero blisters during the break in and on my 500 mile hike. They provided ample support, warmth, and water proofing while hiking steep inclines through the Pyrenees, through frigid winds of the maseta, and through endless rainy days in Galicia. I traveled with hikers from around the world an met nobody else who managed this hike without a blister. These were outstanding boots for the variety of terrain I encountered including rocky and slick inclines, gravel and paved roads, and dirt trails.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mountain Girl from NYC on Tuesday, October 16, 2012I ordered and returned several brands of hiking boots before I found these. I was worried that wouldn't work because I wear orthotics and need a shoe with a wide/roomy forefront but narrower in the heel. But they were great. But they DO run big.
A size 9 is actually a Eur size 41. I always wear a 9 1/2 in a hiking boot but these 9s are very roomy with room for my full length orthotics and thick socks. Very supportive around ankle and comfy too.

Question & Answer
Questions about this product? Get answers from community and staff experts.
“Would these be appropriate for snowshoeing?”
They are not insulated, but they are waterproof. If you ordered them large enough that you could wear couple of pairs of wool socks they would do pretty good. It just would depend if you get cold feet easily.
“Are these boots compatible with crampons?”
The AKU Suiterra Suede Gore-TexÂ® Hiking Boots are going to be compatible with hinged crampons.
“Is this boot suitable for light backpacking (3-4 day trips, with a 20-30 pound pack)?”
The AKU Suiterra Suede Gore-TexÂ® Hiking Boots are absolutely suitable for light backpacking.
“can you provide me the euro equivalent to the sizes of this boot. Size 8 varies so the euro size allows me to know the size i need. thanks!”
6.5=37, 7=37.5, 7.5=38, 8=38.5, 8.5=39, 9=40, 9.5=41, 10=42. I hope this helps.
“My previous pair of AKU was a unisex UK 5. What size should I be getting for this?”
A UK woman's 5 equates to a US 7-1/2, I would recommend trying a 7-1/2
“Hi, is this boot good for a woman with a wider foot?|Thanks,|Martha S.”
The AKU Suiterra Suede Gore-TexÂ® Hiking Boots are manufactured to have a medium width, I think they will be to narrow for you.
