Alpina Plus GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Super comfortable, all leather, lightweight, day hikers. Leather lined too! I feel compelled to rebut the previous review which didn't state the age, condition, or any other factors relevant to this boot or his review. First of all, any of the modern EVA midsoled boots are subject to the eventual decomposition of the foam. I learned about this with a lightly worn pair of Lowa Renegades that spontaneously destructed on the trail at 14 years of age. I have not gone out and trashed Lowa for this. It… Full review

Alpina Plus GTX

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Low quality and bad customer service. Beware the average quality of Aku. I had some boots which looked good and were performing okay, but suddenly the plastic/rubber midsole went all brittle and now they are unwearable. I discussed this case with Aku directly, but they said it was out of warranty so nothing they could do, which I thought was very poor customer service. Allan Full review

Zenith Leather

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This model is discontinued, I can't find them anywhere. Very comfortable. I bought mine for $90 on Sierra Trading Post.

I wear… Full review

Nef GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These are gorgeous Italian lightweight hikers with top notch construction and materials. Fit is excellent on low-mid-volume foot (men's euro 44). The "teeth" of these lightweight hikers was surprising through a few miles of hardscrabble Wasatch bushwhacking. Super impressive. These are gorgeous Italian lightweight hikers with top notch construction and materials. My first use out of the box involved inadvertently going three miles off-trail speed hiking/running to catch a closing (summertime) lift… Full review

Mustang GTX

rated 1 of 5 stars Never buy an AKU boot. I bought this boot in October 2014. I used it three times and one of the boots started to bend. Normally this should not have happened. I have contacted AKU Italy and after all corresponding emails, I was left with a faulty boot. Their local dealer refuses to exchange or inspect even. I have never thought I would experience this negative experience from a reputable company. It seems they are not that reputable.  The bending boot: The non-bending part: Full review
