    Details

    Plenty of bite for the trail with looks that kill on the street.

    Combining classic looks with a few modern comforts, the Aku Women's Ultra Light GTX Hiking Boots are a great pair of boots for quick day hikes, camping trips, and mountain town wear. Their uppers are composed of a combination of breathable mesh and durable suede. Inside are waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex membranes to keep your feet dry while you stomp through muddy trails. Aggressive Vibram soles dig in when slope angles increase, and with a dual-density midsole, your feet will still have plenty of life in them for a night out after a full day of pounding trail.

    Very comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After trying numerous other boots, my son suggested these. I have lots of foot problems from badly healed fractures to protruding bones. Although slightly larger than expected, they fit me fantastically, plus, I had room for extra thick wool socks needed for Icelandic temperatures. They remain comfortable, warm and dry considering the constant deluge of rain I saw while there. So glad I got these!

    Perfect but runs large!

    These shoes are surprisingly lightweight for the durability of the outer soles. I would use them for casual hikes, they're comfortable and grippy for steeper more difficult rocky terrain, and they stay dry on wet muddier areas with the Goretex. Other Goretex boots I've tried on were too heavy and rigid, lacking flexibility with hotspots. Normally I'm blister prone as I have Bauer bumps on my heel and a wider forefoot that requires breaking into shoes before blisters stop. I didn't have any with these on my first hike so I went on a 16mile backpacking trip with these boots my second time ever wearing them-not one blister or hot spot! I gave this 4 reviews because they run very large. I typically wear 6.5 casual shoes, and 7 on all my running/trail shoes/hiking boots- to fit thicker wool socks. They seemed oddly big when I first received them but I thought I'd fill them in with thick wool socks when I put them to use-that didn't happen. I'm sort of stuck with them now and have to double up on socks until I can find a pair smaller. They're pricey but with the perfect fit worth it. If anyone bought the 6.5s and needs to go up a size... I would love to trade you these 7s for your 6.5s-that's how much I like and believe in these shoes!

    Perfect but runs large!

    Like em? No I LOVE em.

    I was super nervous to order boots online, seeing as though I obviously could not try them on. However, I had been looking for something a little different than the normal brown/tan/green/blue color and these fit that bill perfectly!! I was super excited to see that they had my size and then to find out that it just happened to be the last pair...well clearly it was meant to be.

    The boots were a great price and showed up so fast that I wondered if Backcountry.com was located in my front yard.

    I have been using them on every hike/walk since and they have been fabulous. They are sturdy, comfortable, provide great traction and look amazing all at the same time. I'm a bigger girl too (yes, we hike and climb mountains) and they still provide all the support I need even though they are supporting a little more weight than they are probably designed to.

    Love love love! I would recommend AKU to anyone.

    Like em?  No I LOVE em.

    Don't let the looks fool you - awesome!

    • Size Bought: us6/eu37

    They look too pretty to be any good - but actually, these hiking boots are terrific even on talus. They are stiff, sturdy, yet very lightweight and offer really good waterproofing. I have done simple hikes but also mountaineering in them, and they held their own. Took me maybe 15 miles to break them in.

    Note on size. I am a US 6.5 for hiking boots, which is usually a European 36.5. However, a US 6 in these is a European size 37, and they do not come any smaller. I therefore purchased the US6/european 37, switched out the insole for a higher volume/more support one and they actually fit me perfect. Order down to your accurate european size, the conversion is not quite right. I love them so much i picked up a second pair in the sale.

    Photo is going up to one of the horns on Lone Cone Peak, CO - They stick super well on rock!

    Don't let the looks fool you - awesome!

    The smallest size is 6.5-is that US or UK size? Are all the other sizes sold out? Thx!

    Hey Bei - The sizes are US and the smallest size we carried was size 6 which is sold out. What size are you looking for? Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions about boots and I would be glad to help you finding something to fit your needs.
