Never buy an AKU boot.


  • None


  • Breaks down after three times of usage

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.
