AKU Vertigo GTX

A 3-season boot that is very lightweight; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; high rubber rand around toe and forefoot for extra durability; very stiff Vibram sole unit with good lug pattern; well cushioned and supportive design. Fabric and suede upper is not as durable as some others, but nothing major wrong here.

Verdict: Buy it if you want a lightweight, quality hill-walking boot that is particularly good for scrambling over rocky ground.
