    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 !

    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.

    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!

    Quality seems fine but run narrow compared to American work boots like redwing. So had to return.

    I had been wearing a pair of Asolo leather hiking boots and they fell apart fast. So I decided to go with the Aku boots. I just got them in the mail a few days ago. They look amazing and look well made. So far I'm impressed since they were at such a good price. However, I have yet to wear them hiking yet. I will test them out and try and write another review in the next few months.

    These fitas I expected and as other Italian shoes do. (Which means to me they are not nearly las wide as U.S. military boots but not as narrow as a narrow either). The foot support is excellent and is some of the best I have seen, no matter the price. One thing I particularly like is that the heel and the toe of the boot are rounded slightly so it makes it much easier to walk. These never felt like they need to be broken in. They are well made with tight seams - and look good, almost sleek when compared to some other models.

    Well made and sturdy. Ordered 1/2 size up to accommodate thicker socks and fit is good. Very secure speed lace hardware

    The fit and finish is excellent.
    Comfortable from the moment I put them on.
    Always liked Gore-Tex and Vibram soles.
    Some people commented on them as they look good on.
    The laces are actually the correct length!
