HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
We create our footwear using lasts based on real feet. Because of this we make it easy to find your perfect fit.
1st. Step onto a piece of paper and with a pen mark just behind your heel and in front 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’s my fourth pair of Aku’s, as always I am amazed by the quality of craftsmanship and confort of my boot !!!
Superalp GTX - Men's
I have been buying this style of boot for 40 years. These are the most comfortable and longest lasting boot I have owned in this style. This is my second pair and now my son also buys the same boots. I would give these my highest recommendation.
