Italian brand Aku has received the “Editor’s Choice” award from Outdoor Life for its Superalp GTX. Featuring the company’s proprietary IMS-3 sole (which provides varying polyurethane densitites for maximum comfort and cushioning, even on rough terrain) as well as a Vibram outsole and GoreTex liner, the boot weights less than two pounds yet provides optimum support for stability and protection on and off the trail.
“Outdoor Life’s ratings give you the unbiased and accurate truth on outdoor gear,” says Editor Andrew McKean. “Products are thoroughly tested and winning items earn the title based exclusively on the hard data and scores. So when we say a particular items is the best, you can take it to the bank.”
