    runs large

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    crazy comfortable, day one on a long, steep hike and they didn't even give me a blister. However, they run very large. I'm a 9.5 and I got a 10 for thick socks, but I should have gone 9.5 maybe even 9. Even if they are too big, they are still functional and great. I should have exchanged right away but I wanted to test them out...

    Amazing Boots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8

    Intro: I bought these a week before my trip to Peru to do the Salkantay Trek.

    Pros: extremely lightweight, no break in period needed, waterproof through rainstorms and trekking through streams, great support, good traction.

    Cons: haven't found any yet

    Fit: true to size. I wear a size 8 in street shoes, these fit perfectly in a size 8.

    Amazing boots for my Grand Canyon hike

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I purchased these boots two weeks prior to my Grand Canyon hike because I didn't feel like my approach shoes would be the most comfortable. I wore them for the first time to summit Mt. Humphrey's in AZ three days prior to our rim to rim adventure. These boots are amazing! Obviously, I didn't have time to break them in, and I had no problems at all! During our 3 night, 4 day Grand Canyon rim to rim hike, we had rain for the first two days. My feet stayed completely dry! These boots were extremely comfortable, and even with no break in time, I had no issues! LOVE these boots!

    Seriously, deep connection btwn these&me

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    These boots have been thru so much terrain, weather, love, and adventure!



    I had never heard of this brand before I purchased these. I am very pleased that I bought them! I have had these for a year and a half now. They still seem great with all the miles I have put on them. I do see though in the near future I may have to get a new pair! I do need to re waterproof them though. They are not water proof anymore.



    As soon as I tried them on they felt like the perfect fit. I can not compare this fit to any other shoe. It's like they used my foot as the mold. :)



    I would say though, the first few weeks I wore them I did receive blisters on my heel but after they were broken in no more blisters, period!



    These boots are great for backpacking. They are super lightweight compared to my other boots. I always prefer the ankle protection when backpacking. The sole is super grippy.



    **These boots are for people with narrow feet.



    ****Purchased a size 6 and wear a street shoe size 6.

    Hiked Big Bend

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8m

    I'm not really a hiker but needed boots for Big Bend trip and wasn't comfortable wearing low cut shoes. The Anhu Montara boot was comfy all day and protected my feet and lower leg. I'm not used to taller boots so they rubbed my left above the ankle, could have been my sock. Great shoes otherwise.

    Honeymoon Hikers!

      Got these as a gift for my best friend and her (soon-to-be) husband who will be backpacking in Kauai for their honeymoon. Will update w/ pics and review once they get back! :)

      UPDATE! My bestfriend is married! And here's what she had to say about her boots!

      These boots were by far more than I expected. I did some research on a few other hiking boots and these had the best reviews. One of the main reasons I decide to purchase Ahnu’s was because it’s feature of being waterproof and light weight. We went to Kauai and hiked multiple trails, ranging from 6-10miles, and boy it was wet, muddy, and moist. I wore theses boots almost 85% of the time and they were amazing! I didn’t have to break them in, didn’t get a single blister, and my socks were dry. I was impressed. They are very comfortable, stylish, and true to size. I highly recommend these boots! Your feet will love you.



      Nice, comfy boots...

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 9.5

      for a season. I purchased these boots last May and have worn them on about 8 day hikes ranging 6-10 miles. They are light, comfortable, and the toe box was roomy enough in a size 9.5 (I usually wear a 9). I also have a narrow foot and heel; my heel fit well, no slippage, without special lacing techniques.

      I also wore these boots on a 4-day backpacking trip with about a 40 pound pack. My feet stayed pretty happy. I didn't develop any hot spots until day 4, only one (small) on my left heel, but I suspect it was due to the wool sock I was wearing that day and not the boot. They had pretty good traction on wet granite and provided good ankle support. I was also happy with the water-proofing.

      However, my first 8 mile hike this year proves that they are not feeling as cushy as they did last year. Also, the sole was slightly slippery on the half mile of trail that was covered in wet snow.

      I'll still be wearing these boots around town, because they are pretty comfy short-term, but I'm shopping for a boot that is designed for longer trips.

      much more than purple and pretty

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      My boyfriend got me this pair of boots as a gift. I love the color and style of it, but they also work great. I wore them all summer long. We went hiking and backpacking. My two favorite things about these boots are their amazing traction and the fact that they never made my feet hurt.

      Not for Wide Feet

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small

      I bought these shoes and I'm usually an 8.5, but I couldn't even get these on my feet, unfortunately. They felt far too narrow for my wide feet. I returned them but I must admit that they were one of the more adorable hiking boots I have ever seen (sorry that I can't comment on their hiking qualities!).

      Best Everyday Boot Thus Far

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 9.5

      I've only had these boots for a week, but I haven't worn anything else since I got them. I was in serious need of a hiking boot upgrade, and really lucked out with this choice. I'm still really stoked every time I slip my feet into these boots - they're so comfortable. The boot feels really secure, albeit a tiny bit bulky around the ankle, and the lining and insole honestly just feel luxurious - either I've never owned a really nice, modern, hiking boot or these are some truly awesome boots - or both. ;) These boots are light, breathable and something I don't mind keeping on my foot all day -and I'm typically someone who's always anxious to get shoes off her feet! I'm a big fan of the materials used to make this boot. They're not an effort to wear and don't trap or bind your foot. They're holding up great in puddles so far, and I can't wait for a rainier day to really see how they perform.

      Before I chose these, I spent hours in various stores trying on all sorts of boots. After all of that, I can confidently say these boots look and feel well made, and I expect to have a lot of adventures with them!

      super light weight and comfy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 8

      I must say I LOVE these shoes!! I've taken them on many of hiking trips and tracking in Europe and they are definitely comfy.. I've climb all the way to the top to Angels landing in Zion National park and must admit that was the scariest hike I've taken and they kept me firm on the ground! No slip! I have not taken them on an extended back pack trip but have plans to do so in a future time so I'm excited to see how they pan out. I have my friend hooked on these shoes and she absolutely love them as well. SOOO super light weight and so well made.

      Happy birthday

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I bought these for my girlfriend as a birthday gift. She was hiking with me in Adidas running shoes and desperately needed an upgrade. I got her size 7.5 just like the rest of her shoes and they fit great. At first she loved them because in her words "their pretty and purple" but now she loves them for how they work. She wore them when I took her backpacking and had no complaints. She only said her feet got wet once and that day was miserably wet. Coming from the purchaser I thought that they were very well priced compared to some of the competition.

      Happy birthday

      Beautiful, well-made, sturdy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These boots are beautiful, well-made, and sturdy.



      Backpacking is a consistent summer hobby, and it was about time I purchased a shoe specific for hiking. I'm a weekend warrior these days, so I wanted something that would hold up on 3-4 day trips and hold a pack of about 35-40 lbs, by no means am I hiking the PCT. Just something to keep in mind.



      I prowled the hiking boot selection consistently but couldn't get myself to purchase a high priced boot, then I stumbled across these bad boys. They have all the features I was looking for: leather, waterproofing, Vibram soles, ankle support, all at a great value. And they come in purple which is a major bonus!



      The boots have eVent waterproofing, a material I am less familiar with but very impressed. It is very breathable with the ability to shield water.



      The boots are on the less-stiff side. They were pretty easy to break in and only left me with a few hot spots, nothing out of the ordinary when breaking in new boots. The fit is true to size, I recommend ordering what you normally wear.



      But really, they are beautifully made and highly recommended!

      Beautiful, well-made, sturdy

      Really stylish but not for intense hikes

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      The minute I opened the box, I loved these boots. Super comfy and very stylish (because that also matters to me). The first couple of shorter hikes with a light or no pack were fine and no break in period needed.
      Unfortunately, the more use they get and on longer, steeper, rocky terrain...they just are not the best choice at all. My feet are tired after 12 miles and there is just not enough support or cushioning for a duration like that. I couldn't imagine wearing them with a heavy pack. It's to the point that I just wear my Montrail Masochists for these longer day hikes instead to keep my feet happy. In addition, these have horrible grip on rocks and can't trust that my foot won't slip because it has many times, which puzzles me with the Vibram sole and all. If you happen to come across a snowfield on a hike that wouldn't require you wearing mountaineering boots, this has absolutely no grip whatsoever....like in a very scary way.

      With that being said, for light day hikes and low mileage - these are nice. If you log more miles in variable terrain then I would just suggest getting a different pair that is geared more for that pursuit. Suffice it to say, I am shopping for a new hiking boot.

      Great for day hikes.

      • Size Bought: 7

      Definitely comfortable. Didn't need to break them in. Fit comfortably with a midweight sock. Only have worn them in Northeast - fall and early spring so I can't vouch for how breathable they'd be in higher temps but for the conditions that I wore them in, they worked out well. Got Austral Aura, love the color. Did some rock scrambling and walked along the wet rocks of stream and the grip was good.

      Great for day hikes.

      Fit great and love these boots

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      These boots had a great fit as soon as I put them on. I was a bit hesitant about ordering hiking boots online but these have worked out without any problems. I had done some hiking with a different brand of boots bought from another company and had ended up with blisters on my ankles...won't do that again. But, my Ahnu Montara Boots are so comfortable, I'm really glad that I ordered these.

      seems well constructed, didn't fit

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size

      I have pretty wide feet, and I read some reviews stating that this boot had a narrow heel and a wide toe box. I usually wear a 7 or 7.5 so I ordered a 7.5 thinking the extra space would compensate for any width issues. I had a fair amount of room at the end of my toes, but absolutely none on the sides. My toes were squished immediately and I knew breaking them in wasn't an option. My heel was just fine though (I think I have normal width heels?) A 7 Wide would be a good fit. An 8 would have been way too long and possibly not wide enough still. I was so excited these are great looking boots with great reviews. BEWARE you wide footed people, my foot is approximately 4 inches wide at its widest point and there was NO WAY my feet were fitting in there without overlapped toes. True to size in length almost perfectly though.

      I tried these on recently and am hoping...

      I tried these on recently and am hoping to hear if anyone has any thoughts on the ankle support? I do long backpacks often to locations that require heavy gear and/or I'm alone carrying all of my own stuff. Will this boot hold up on rocky terrain for ankle support? How about waterproofing for damp rainforest settings? Thank you.

      I have these and am very happy with them for 10-15 mile day hikes and have used them for winter snowshoeing, too. They are light, waterproof, comfortable and durable. I do think that for longer hikes they are perhaps too light - they have support similar to a trail running shoe rather than a heavy hiking boot.

      I am hiking 1000 km on La Via de la Plata...

      I am hiking 1000 km on La Via de la Plata (One of the Camino de Santiago routes) my pack will be under 20 pounds and it will be a 2 month walk, some hiking, mostly an old roman road. (Very different from my usual backpacking!) Love the feel of this boot- thoughts on durability?

      Does anyone know if this boot runs true...

      Does anyone know if this boot runs true to size, Large or small???
