AKU Camana Air GTX 2009

The AKU Camana Air GTX weighs 1380g (pair, size 11); Gore-Tex waterproof lining; Air8000 fabric for breathability; solid toe box ideal for rocky ground; good underfoot cushioning; decent outsole lug pattern for grip. But outsole is very bendy and upper is not as supportive as some others; upper not as durable as those with less stitching and fewer panels.

 

Verdict: The AKU Camana Air GTX is a good lightweight moorland and valley walking boot, but on rockier ground others have benefits.
