    I'm really happy because be a user of AKU gtx trekking shoes at the cheapest price. It is very comfortable use in town as well as long distance walking. It's very simple visual but not tired design and goes well together with jeans as well denim clothes.

    I love AKU boots for several reasons - they are very durable, the toe-box is typically larger than in many other boots, and they provide great cushioning. The Tribute boot also looks good and was comfortable right out of the box. Great job AKU and Sierra Trading Post !
  • Great fit right out of the box

    This is the first time I’ve used this brand. The boots are comfortable right away, and look to be extremely well constructed.

    Even though the soles will provide plenty of protection in rocky terrain, they are not heavy at all. I will treat the shoes with Nikwax and expect the boots will be very durable.
  • Nice

    The soles of my AKU Zenith 2 wore through, and was undecided for a while how to deal with that, AKU is uninformative regarding resole options. I went with these boots as a last minute decision before a backpacking trip. I left for the Sierras 10 minutes after UPS delivered them, so there was no time to assess the fit etc. While not as luxurious as my leather lined Zeniths, these Tributes are built really solid with a mean outsole, despite being so lightweight. I crossed multiple shallow meltwater streams without water spilling inside, and water rolls off the suede, mud seems to flake off quickly also. I had some arch trouble with 55lbs on my back, sharp tarsal pain, which lessened over the span of 5 days. The footbed seemed slightly flat, but my feet are aging, so whatever. I'll get inserts. A very simple boot, built to take a beating.

    Wow.....very comfortable boot, doesn't need break in time. The boot is very comfortable and gives great ankle support. The size was spot on. It has a toe guard which is an additional great feature. Highly recommend this boot!

    I will be them as an everyday boot just walking around the city, including days when it will rain and snow.
    Asked by Debra from Philadelphia on 8/27/2017 7:26:44 PM
  • “Hello,

    I'd like to order a pair of these boots but I'm unsure about sizing. I was recently in a store (Keen,I think) where the gentleman measured my foot and said my size is about a ten though a 10.5 or 11 is probably best because I want a little room for my toes, especially with hiking boots. What do you think the best way is to figure out my size for the AKU boots? I measured my foot from the toe to the back and it's about 27 cm. Also, if they don't fit can I return them?

    • Go with the 11. These do run a hair small. With boots it's easy to make up some room with thick hiking socks and nice insoles. I usually wear and 11, I got 11.5 and with socks and insoles they fit great. Yes you can return.

  • “are these shoes may the size of American or European? What size corresponds to 28 centimetres?”
    Asked by Ewa from Nyc on 9/26/2016 7:09:04 PM
    • All sizing on our website is in US sizes unless otherwise indicated on the specific product page. 28 cm generally is equivalent to a US 9.5.
