I made the terrible mistake of not wearing in my hiking boots before hiking in them. I did an eight mile hike the first time out and not a blister or sore spot. Extremely comfortable the entire week of hiking. The soles did not slip on any surface I came across - wet rocks, steep slick clay. I was very impressed
I bought these boots for my 70 year old mom for Christmas, and the first thing I'd like to say is that these boots look so good. I was very impressed upon seeing them in person. The second thing is that my mom used to suffer from foot, back and leg pain and it is now almost completely gone. We can go for day long hikes, in the city or on trails, and she always expresses amazement that she has no more pain. She marvels at how easy they are for her to put on and how comfortable they are once tied up. She touts the support the boots give her, but at the same they are flexible enough that she doesn't feel like she's walking in ski boots. Finally she has many people asking her where she got her boots, because they want a pair. It truly is incredible what a well constructed boot can do for you. She no longer wears any of her other runners, or boots and will only wear these boots when going walking or hiking. Thank you AKU.
Great shoe , love them
