These boots fit great and are superbly comfortable, right out of the box, with very little break-in required. It feels like your feet are wrapped in a cloud. Warm, waterproof and very comfortable. What more can you ask for? I used AKU's fit guide to determine my size. These boots fit true to size, so if you want to wear them with heavy thick socks, you might want to go up a half size, not that you would really need to though. I was hiking in these boots with normal socks the past weekend, and it was -20DegC outside with a -29DegC wind chill, and my feet were comfortably warm and dry.... Highly recommended if you're looking for a serious alpine boot.
I have been wearing these boots since the day they arrived. I bought them for working 6-8 hour days in the snow. The temps have been -20c down to -32c. My feet have been warm and secure throughout. Thank you for such a great hiking/work boot.
Great boots so far. Initial quality seems great.
Cold doesn't transmit through the soles @ -20c.
