AKU Terrealte Boot Excellent Quality
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Haywire from North Carolina on Monday, February 15, 2016
I ordered the boot with anticipation and trepidation. I have had trouble with Italian boots in the past as they must use bowling balls for heel molds. The AKU, however, fits great. I mostly hike back country and really like the rigid soles, for climbing steep inclines, and the additional ankle support. The lacing is superb and the tension stays where you want. The bottom sole provides excellent traction for descents in any terrain, climbing steep slopes, and balancing across logs. The top of the boot has a mini gaiter that will help keep out the debris. I have been on two hikes and I have full confidence in the boot and would highly recommend for backpacking and back country treks.
