AKU Conero GORE-TEX Hiking Boots Black Grey
Very reasonable priced
I've been using a pair of these hiking boots for over 15 years now, and finally they could be replaced (but still no immediate need!). So far I only fit-tested this pair, and they're still as my old pair. I have no doubt I will again do many hiking trips and kilometers with this new pair!

Best Walking Boots
I absolutely love these boots, did not need breaking in or anything. Perfect for all weather conditions although a bit warm in high summer.

AKU Tribute II GORE-TEX Hiking Boots Brown
Great hiking!
I did buy a pair back in 2008, and they lasted till last month! Have been around with them: Bayrisch Obergebirge, Harz, Sandsteingebirge Boemen, so I had to get another pair. Got new boots, put them on and it was, like I was wearing my old ones!

AKU Superalp NBK GORE-TEX Hiking Boots Brown
Fabulas boots
I've owned the original Aku Zenith boot for the last 12 years it's never leaked and they are still ok today. Reason for new ones was I needed something with a little more aggressive sole for grip. If I get 12 years out of these too I will be very happy. They take a little braking g in as they are quiet stiff but one worn in there comfy. The best boot I've ever had .

AKU Selvatica MID GORE-TEX Hiking Boots Black Red
Like slippers!!
I use AKU boots all the time; they are as good as they get. These boots are lightweight but also supportive, which is impressive. They are comfortable straight out of the box and soon mould to your feet. I recommend them.

Excellent quality, feel and grip.
A great quality boot built to a high standard. These are comfy, light, grippy, waterproof and tuff plus a great all-round boot that look as good as they perform.
