SL Trek GTX

I’ve never splurged on a quality pair of hiking boots. But neither my dad’s blister-happy hand-me-downs nor my three-year-old running shoes cut it anymore. The AKU SL Trek GTX reminded me why footwear matters. I put them to the test by taking off the tags and heading straight into a five-day class in Yellowstone. No break-in period was necessary; I bounced around steep trails and scaled rocky talus with ease. The grip on these babies is incredible, and they’re surprisingly lightweight. On day five, I emerged with zero blisters and major style points. They might be a little costly, but it’s quality worth paying for. Beware: they run a little large—for any in-between sizes, I’d recommend rounding down. Other than that, these puppies will take you wherever you want to go. $330; aku.it.
