Selvatica GTX - Men's
I did intense research on hiking shoes, looking at what was available from every major brand. It was actually the lacing system that ripped the scale. And once I got my pair in the mail and tried them on ... I knew I had made the right decision. The shoes are super well made and very comfortable. They aren’t the cheapest option available, but I think I will have these for a long time, so happy to pay a little more than the mass market options.
My first pair of AKU shoes, I found that they fit perfectly used the suggested sizing method. Shoes were stiff which I appreciate given the recommended uses. The only thing I have done is upgrade the insole to one that is a little more substantial. Great shoe will be ordering a second pair when the new stock arrives.
