Feels like a trail runner!

These are great boots. I have never worn Aku products, and I don't typically wear boots other than for mountaineering. In need of a waterproof boot for some fall 14er stuff, I decided to give these a try. First of all, these fit my slightly wide feet extraordinarily well. The heel cup is perfect for me, with no slipping or hotspots straight out of the box. I am a huge fan of the Brooks Cascadia as an all-around trail shoe, and that is what I use even when carrying 30-35 pound loads. I have got to say, these boots are not significantly less comfortable than those. They are pretty flexible in the uppers, and may not afford a ton of support in the ankle area, but for someone who is looking for a comfortable boot with a good, aggressive tread, waterproof construction, and reasonable durability, you would likely be hard-pressed to find a more suitable boot at this price. I have only worn them 3-4 times so far, with about 10 or so miles on them, but I think that they will continue to be a great performer.
