HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
We create our footwear using lasts based on real feet. Because of this it is very easy to find your perfect fit.
1st. Step onto a piece of paper and mark just behind you heel and in font of your longest toe.
2nd. Do this for both feet and then measure the centimeters between these lines. This measurement is your Mondopoint.
3rd. Using the measurement from your longest foot find your correlating size below.
It is apparent that these boots are well crafted and aren't your ordinary boot. They are designed to take a beating and will leave your feet feeling untouched by the environment, even if its wet. I used these boots to hit the San Juan Mountains in Colorado and felt secure and protected on every adventure. AKU boots have a unique feel and comfort, which I think is due to the ELICA Technology.
I purchased a pair of the Alterra GTXs a couple of months ago and I wanted to make sure I had a chance to really wear them before I wrote a review. I didn't need to wait. These boots have been absolutely fantastic from day one. I literally took them out of the box and went out for a couple of hours on a steep climb and they felt great, no rubbing, no blisters nothing but comfortable hiking the entire time. The forefoot was held comfortably and there no sliding even as I descended. The sole was firm and made it easy to walk across sharp rocks and rough terrain. The boot gave excellent ankle support and I have not had any issues with my chronically bad ankles. I have even taken them through some pretty wet conditions in the PNW and the boots were very water repellent. I love these boots and would recommend very highly to anyone.
