AKU Cresta Weg GTX 2011

The AKU Cresta Weg GTX weighs 1600g (pair, size 11); suede leather upper for durability; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; full rubber rand; Vibram sole unit with good, deep lug pattern for grip; excellent stiffness for rocky ground; good cushioning; excellent performance for scrambling and rocky mountain walks. But the price is too high compared with other boots that are available.

The AKU Cresta Weg GTX is a great boot for use on rockier hills and mountains, but the price is high compared to other options.
