Short hikes to long treks.
Trek into the alpine or take a shorter trail after work with the AKU Men's Alpina Plus LTR Hiking Boot's versatile performance and maximum comfort. Gore-Tex Performance Comfort pairs a waterproof breathable membrane with a moisture-wicking liner for active endeavors. The Exoskeleton upper uses nubuck leather, full-grain leather, and a bit of polyurethane to ensure long-lasting protection.
AKU's Anatomical Fit encourages dynamic movement over rough terrain with a snug, wrap-around design. Underfoot, the Alpina Plus features an IMS³ moldable lasting board, stabilized heel cup, a supportive nylon shank, and cushy EVA. Vibram's Alpina sole uses a special MegaGrip compound for long-lasting, secure traction.

these are my second pair of AKU hiking boots and I only have positive things to say. The quality of the construction is top notch. The interior is fully lined with quality leather, and it feels great on the foot. These boots will last for years.
The description says the lining is Gore-Tex, but the "tech specs" list a leather liner. The pictures also seem to show a leather liner. So, if I order this boot, what should I expect?
