Just used the boots on a late season Mule deer hunt. -26 at night and -16 during the day (Celsius) for 5 days. Kept my feet warm while moving and feet would stay warm for about 1.5-2 hrs while stationary glassing. Really good stability in the snow and side hilling even with a heavy pack
Long time supporter of AKU footwear and I took a leap into the Superalp NBK GTX boots, right out of the box I was impressed with the design/construction. Laced up my size 12 1/2 boots with medium thickness wool socks and proceeded to hike 4km, to my surprise I experienced no hotspots or foot discomfort. Since then I have hiked approximately 100km plus in total comfort across various trails, looking forward to many more trails and the upcoming winter season.
Design features for comfort and performance with high quality materials. Will use these for snow hiking. I went 1/2 size up and the fit is typical AKU with insoles and heavy socks.
