AKU Rock Lite II GTX Approach
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
When quick hikes, fourth-class scrambling, and a dash of city exploring are on the agenda, the Aku Rock Lite II GTX Shoe will be your best bud. These lightweight approach shoes have the sticky rubber of Vibram Predator II outsoles to make steep, rocky terrain a piece of cake, but the low-key style and light weight to make everyday wear perfectly acceptable. If the trail (or sidewalk) gets soggy, the soft suede and 3D Air Mesh uppers are protected by a waterproof Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane, and the dual-density die-cut EVA midsole will make you think someone accidentally left a miniature feather bed inside your shoes. Best of all, the Custom Fit IMS 16 footbed provides a comfortably yet precise fit so you don't have to worry about blisters, foot slop, or imprecise footwork when the terrain gets a little more consequential.
