Love my boots. Uppers never wear down or show signs of strain. The soles are vulcanized on the uppers and when they wear down and my legs and back ache there is no way to replace them. Do wish there was some way to repair or replace the soles and then the boots would last forever.

  • “Do they have good ankle support ”
    Asked by Doug from WA on 7/27/2017 2:42:44 PM
    • yes, very good. They felt just a little bit like ski boots when i first put them on. They really hold your foot/ankle solidly, and after several months of owning them, I've hiked all over my little mountain property, including thru my creek and I LOVE them.

      I'm hoping they offer them once again, so i can buy another pair.

    • Yes, better and more comfortable than high end hockey skates. The arch support is very good,too although I would recommend a gel insert. The lacing system is laid out nicely and the padding on the tongue allows you to snug the laces down without any blood loss below the ankle.

      Give them a couple days to form to your feet, they are good like that. Never had to stop to tighten the laces either. Tie 'em once and go.........

    • Yes, these are designed with good ankle support.

    • Hi Doug, in my experience using AKU boots over the last 10 years or so, I have found that they provide excellent ankle support without being a heavy boot like other brands. Hope this helps!

  • “Are these true to size or run small or large? ”
    Asked by B. Mac from FL on 4/5/2017 9:12:38 AM
    • According to our fit team this item is running true to size.
      Answered on 4/5/2017 10:36:27 AM by Product Specialist Greg from Sierra Trading Post
    • I first bought the 10.5 for my boyfriend and they did fit but there was an issue with a seam rubbing in the little toe area. He loved the boots, though, so we decided to get the 11's. Basically, the 11's just gave him more room in the toe box so there is not a rubbing issue. I would say they are pretty true to size. He has some shoes of both size, but if you think you need a bit more room in the toe area, go with the larger size.

  • “Do they have steel shanks?”
    Asked by Treeguy from Cleveland on 2/19/2016 1:14:46 PM
    • No steel shank but a a fAirly heavy duty sole
      Answered on 2/19/2016 2:57:39 PM by Donnyrock from The Pacific North West
    • I don't know, they don't appear to have steel shanks. You may want to google the manufacturer. I don't see steel shanks in the specs on the STP website, the STP website tends to be pretty accurate. The boots are light in weight.
      Answered on 2/19/2016 3:19:04 PM by Ginger Bird from Boulder, CO
    • Nope, exoskeleton design and height provide fairly decent rigidity that works well for trails. These are hiking boots not climbing boots so they're not primarily designed for glacier travel where crampons are needed & steel shank boot construction is highly desirable.
      Answered on 2/19/2016 5:05:05 PM by Alpine Guy from PNW, Western US & Canada
    • I'm not sure if it has a steel shanks but the boot is has a stiff shank with good stability

    • I don't believe so. These are more day/ overnight hikers than they are week-long backpackers.

    • These boots fit a medium width. I have a medium with foot and sometimes late in the day when my feet are tired and swollen, the boot is tight. Unless they offer a wide, I don't think they would work for you.

    • Hi' I normally wear a size 10 1/2 d And i had to get a size 11 1/2 med and they seem to fit real good .I just got back from a hunting trip and wore them every day my feet didn't get to hot with temp, around 80 would buy again, it took 3 pair for me to get the right size. hope it helps

      Answered on 11/19/2015 6:34:28 PM by Fast Fred from ohio
    • Tom,
      No heat problems for me with these boots . The nylon upper allows the heat to escape , and it gets over 90° in Marin where I hike.
      I like these AKU so much I have two more unopened pair on the shelf .

    • I found the aku boots to be very comfortable in cold and hot conditions we have here in South Dakota. My feet do not sweat, and are a joy to wear in the extreme climates we have here!
      Answered on 11/19/2015 7:44:05 PM by Anonymous from sd
    • I don't have these but the Transalpina and Arriba boots which are very close siblings. I have slightly wide feet in a 10.5 shoe, 11 boot. I have a couple pairs of Aku in size 11, they fit great with an aftermarket insole. They are the best fitting boots out of all the brands I have.

      Both boots breathe better than any Gore-tex boot I have ever tried. I got them specifically so I could have Gore-tex options in warmer weather.

    • My husband wears the same size shoe as you. He found the AKU Teton Gore-Tex® Hiking Boots - Waterproof (For Men) to be comfortable enough to wear on a 24 mile walk. The boots were practically just out of the box. He says these are lighter than the Asolo boots he's replacing, and didn't overheat his feet even after 24 miles, or on subsequent hikes over rocky terrain. I did order these a 1/2 size larger (size 11) because my husband likes to wear a liner socks under his thicker hiking socks.

    • These shoes, including a fairly high volume insert, fit my foot well with the laces fairly tight and I wear 11.5 D width New Balance shoes. So, with the original inserts there might be enough room for a wider foot. I would at thsay for Gore-Tex boots, these boots might be a bit cooler than most because there is a lot of mesh, but any waterproof boot is not going to be "cool" in high temps.

    • Thanks, everyone. I just received the Asolo Neutrons, which are really tight for a "wide" size. Funny, no size W or EE on the box, just "Wide Fit" on the tags. Wondering about returning them and ordering these AKUs - as they were my first choice anyways.
