    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.

    So far so good

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10

    I picked these up for my Dad after much of his gear was stolen. He is a traditional backpacker and traditionally wore very heavy Sundowners or similar boots. Due to knee and ankle issues, we began looking for something lighter and more versatile for hiking in the SW desert. After he received these, he called me and instantly asked if they were actually leather. He had never had a ltr boot this light.

    Sizing seems to be on point. He is a 10 in most boots and shoes and that is what I got him. He said the quality looks good so far. He has only worn them on a few dry hikes and can't give feedback to the longevity yet. If there are waterproofing or quality issues, I will update the review.

    Extremely good boots

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

    These boots are by far the best thing I have ever worn on my feet, bar none. Got them for hiking but wore them to work as I am on my feet all day on concrete floors . . at the end of the day my feet do not hurt at all! First time ever! I have high arches and wide feet so a good fit is hard to find. These babies hug your feet and only get better the more you wear them. Also they are beautifully crafted, soft leather lining on entire inside .... they will last a lifetime

    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.

    Unanswered Question

    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?
