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.
I’m fairly discerning when it comes to boots, but I loved these boots right out of the box. They had no contact or pressure points pre or post break-in period (short) and are comfortable with really good heat management. Additionally, I found that these boots don’t really get stinky even with hard wear and submersion in some dirty and sticky stuff (and my feet stink at times). Don’t expect them to be waterproof or cold weather boots, that’s not their designed purpose. That said, they are excellent in normal to fairly hot temperatures. I haven’t used them in the mountains or for extended heavy load carriage yet, but I have no reason to believe that would be an issue. I’ve these in Canada and in South Eastern Africa for an extended period of daily use and they’ve held up very well and are still presentable enough for daily wear. Quality boots.
I love the boots. Great fit, finish and strength. I have worn LA Sportiva, kennetrek and Garmonts and i have to say that AKU is the best. I was however disappointed in the shipping speed. They arrived 16 days after ordering. Other that this, i will be buying more AKU boots.
