Aku didn't make the Tribute II LTR Men's Hiking Boot to the exact specs of your foot--how could they'--but the fit wouldn't be much different if they had. The secret is in the polyurethane midsole, which is injected into the shoe in liquid form so it conforms precisely to the shape of the last as it cools, providing an incredibly precise and supportive fit that works together perfectly with the Anatomical Fit last. It provides pronation support at push off and supination support upon foot strike, which mirrors the way you walk, reducing fatigue and the potential for injury when you're moving over rocky, slippery, or uneven terrain. The Tribute also rocks a removable EVA footbed and medium-stff TPU lasting board for cushioning and easy heel-to-toe foot roll. It's plenty supportive, too, with an Exoskeleton chassis that provides extra side-to-side rigidity in the heel to prevent ankle rolling and a Vibram Sendera rubber sole that's engineered to make short work of moderate mountains, muddy trails, and slick grass.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
