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.
They are a bit stiff at first but they are getting more comfortable every day. I am curious how they stack up to LOWAs in the long term, but so far, I am very impressed with these boots.
These boots are outstanding for field use and also perform well in garrison due to the performance comfort gore-tex liner. Very well made and comfortable, comparable to if not better than combat boot offerings from Lowa and Rocky. Lots of ankle support and very breathable. The bycast protection is very good at preventing scuffs and damage to the leather underneath. Well worth the money and highly recommended for military use.
Absolutely solid boots, comfortable and well built.
They take a bit of time to break in but they fit well and feel very supportive. Good for walking under load or over uneven terrain.
Overall excellent service boot and well worth the money paid. I look forward to buying more boots from AKU.
