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 got these as work boots while I remodel a house in the mountains. The toe cap is more protective than I was expecting, which is great and very comfortable out of the box. I do have to mirror the other review that they are not very good in the winter as the rubber compound gets rock hard in the cold and lacks grip. They are great in wet warmer conditions though and will be used all the time in the spring, summer, and fall.
Bought these boots as a number of guys I work with were searing and suggesting them. I purchased them and I was not disappointed with the look and feel of the boots. Boot is very light and fits like a sneaker. These will make for a great summer boots, however I work in Northern Canada and tried using these boots during the winter months while on duty. The sole of the shoe is very hard and does not grip at all on ice. I took a pretty hard fall while wearing them so they are now in my closet until the snow and ice melt and I can wear them during the "summer" months.
I found the sizing was bang on I wear 10.5 in all my other boots and that's what I ordered. Fit great.
Overall I'm pleased with the boots, just not appropriate for using on icy conditions.
Excellent ankle and insole foot support: Very comfortable out of the box. I'm not a big fan of EVA foam midsoles in boots, but it is noticeably lighter and requires virtually no break in. On sizing, 10.5D/M is my running shoe/true to size. Online reviews have mentioned that UK sizes fit true. Using my Lowas for reference(EU 44/UK 9.5) and the AKU size chart, the size 10 I purchased fits perfectly. Overall I would say the Aku Pilgrim is almost as comfortable as the Lowa Camino, but is much more affordable(and less maintenance).
