    Details

    From Italy with love.

    Italians know a few things about style, and the Aku Slope GTX Men's Hiking Boot is proof. Not only is the multicolor option a ridiculously good-looking boot, but it packs a technical wallop that's made it a success for over thirty years. It isn't a super rugged alpine monster, but the double-density EVA midsole, Custom Fit footbed, and Anatomical Fit last give it a surprising amount of lightweight cushioning and support, while the IMS1 chassis provides a precise low-profile fit with unmatched sensitivity that keeps your feet in touch with tough and changing terrain.

    A Texon+ and TPU lasting board underfoot provides flexible support, so you can feel the ground and move smoothly, and the Vibram Erica Everest sole is designed to handle moderate terrain without batting an eyelash. Perhaps best of all, the soft suede upper uses Aku's Air 8000 breathable design to keep your feet cool, and it's lined with a Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membrane that keeps out water while staying breathable in its own right, so you don't sweat your feet half to death when you're hiking under the warm Dolomite sun.

    Slope Galaxy GTX - NOT - the Slope GTX

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12

    Waited months to get a pair of these, when they arrived they were not what is pictured, just like THX-1138 said. I really like them so kept the one's that arrived, but then did some basic research and they are the Slope Galaxy GTX, not the Slope GTX. Difference is the suede on the one you get is almost blonde, the leather heal and around the ankle is smooth, not suede, and the nylon side panels are olive, not light brown (the Galaxy is on the left in the pic, the Slope on the right). A few days ago, Backcountry.com got another size 12 in, so I called and asked but they couldn't confirm so I rolled the dice and sure enough, what just showed up is a box with the Galaxy in it. Great boot, but be warned about the two styles. Otherwise, the Galaxy is a great lightweight hiker.

    Slope Galaxy GTX - NOT - the Slope GTX

    Received different color ...

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9

    Fit great out of the box ... BUT ... I received a different color boot than the product image. Not a big deal for me, but might matter to someone else. It's a sandy/khaki suede on the front, with an olive leather on the heel wraparound and collar.

    Received different color ...

    Any chance BC is ever going to get the beige in 12 (46.5)? I've seen the Multicolor in 12 in stock, but have never seen the 12 in any other more palatable color?
