Thank you for your feedback.
I found the boots to be comfortable, true to size and light.
They fit perfectly and were comfortable from day one.
No breaking in, these boots are soft and pliable - fit my foot like a glove.

    Size: 7.5 B(M) USColor: Tawny Port Verified Purchase
    I purchased these shoes as a last minute buy, after realizing that my "vacation" was going to be a bit more arduous than I had bargained for. I have worn Merrells quite habitually in the past and have always enjoyed them, but I was on a budget and couldn't afford to drop a couple hundred on a pair of shoes (the price tag on these was even a bit of a stretch), but I figured hey, a hiking trip can go downhill really fast if your feet are not up to par (pun intended). So I bought them, and they arrived 48 hours before setting off on what would prove to be the adventure of a lifetime. I put about 6 miles of easy urban walking on them before I left, and besides a little rubbing above my left ankle, they didn't need any breaking in (I attribute this to being a casual shoe wearer, not the boot itself. I never wear shoes of this cut).

    No more than two days later, I wore these boots practically to the summit of the West Spanish Peak (12,700 ft). The next day, around the crater of Capulin Volcano. The next day, up to the peak of Star Dune in the Great Sand Dunes. THE NEXT DAY, up to the top of the Kashe-Katuwe Tent Rocks. Around the Valles Caldera, Petroglyphs National Monument, and Sandia Crest. The topper - we finished our trip at El Malpais, an a'a' volcanic flow notorious for eating boots (and hands). My boots came out unscathed. By the end of our trip, many of my mates' shoes were wrecked - mine were in fairly pristine shape, with the exception of some staining from stomping in mud puddles and tromping through creeks (which my feet stayed completely dry for).

    When my Ahnus die, they will hold a place in my shoe hall of fame. Then I will buy another pair. All around trusty, awesome boots. They're not quite as magenta as they were when my journey started, but hey - if they stayed pretty, I wasn't wearing them to the right places.

    actually own two pairs of these simply because I haven't found any I love better.

    Admittedly I bought the first pair (the "Aura" color) because it was one of the few hiking shoes that didn't look like a man's shoe (brown on brown), had some spunk, supported the ankles front AND back, and I love the brand in other shoes.

    It's purple with yellow accents. Oh how I fell in love at first glance.

    This pair I bought for a hiking group in which my husband and I are members. So I got them for all kinds of hikes: long, short, you name it. I love that these boots truly center your foot; Vibram is the designer for Ahru on this one and it's a brand known for taking the physics of your foot into consideration rather than simply thinking of the design. First day of hiking, this is very evident. You actually wind up with less blisters due to your foot not moving back and forth as much and the waterproofing worked.

    The boot is unique in that it is made to also allow sweat to evaporate while being waterproof and this is where I decided to put it through a real test.

    I bought a second pair for caving. (They don't show my second pair in these choices, it is brown but has light blue accents). Same model. Same brand.

    My husband and I are spelunkers and own a water cave. Foot wear is key. In a water cave sometimes you crawl, sometimes you walk for long periods on dry sharp formations, sometimes you swim, sometimes you do a little of everything like a salamander...

    I wear a size 7.5 in womens and the 7.5 fit me great. The boots didn't require hardly anytime to break into them. The purple color was really vibrant and got a lot of compliments. My only complaint- about a month into daily use they lost their waterproof ability! I hike 5 days a week for work in Idaho and these were my main and only boots. It was awesome in the beginning to cross rivers and jump across streams with dry feet. But about a month into my job that all changed. I think the boots got so dirty they became saturated with dirt and that compromised the waterproofness. I tried cleaning them with a toothbrush and it did nothing. Three months into owning them and the boots are no longer purple anymore-- they are brown! The inside leather is water stained and ugly. I've thought about taking them to a professional for a cleaning but where the heck does one go for that? If waterproofness is something important to you then I'd look elsewhere for a boot-- and I will too!

    I was preparing to do a 28 mile hike in one day and knew I had to have the best of the best. I researched many boots and this boot had everything I wanted wrapped into one boot. Waterproof, good ankle support, awesome traction, a tough toe and stylish to boot. I did about 15-16 miles over a weekend to test them out and they fit perfectly to my foot and lived up to every expectation I needed. I even got caught in a horrible rain storm and they stayed dry on the inside. Highly recommended.

    Size: 7 B(M) USColor: Tawny Port Verified Purchase
    After much research, I purchased these for some light hiking in the Canadian Rockies. The fit is good though not as true to size as I would have liked (I purchased a 7 and should have gotten the 7.5). But what really made me want to throw them through a window is this. The FIRST TIME I laced them up in preparation for a hike, one of the speed grommets at the top (the silver ones) completely came off. I did not over-torque the laces but when I put the lace through and pulled, it popped off and flew across the room. The ankle grommets are key to hikers because they allow for the proper ankle support/fit. Since everyone was ready to go, I threaded the lace through the metal eyehole and called it good and they were the only boots I had brought with me. A week later when I got back to Washington state, I e-chatted with an Ahnu customer service rep who directed me to their website. (Gee, thanks for the tip.) The bottom line? I couldn't return them because I had USED them even though they were defective. So, my only choice now is to take them to a shoe repair shop. Grrrr...Not impressed with this lack of customer service over a quality issue.
