Designed for all day comfort
Extremely versatile and comfortable for walking along valley bottoms or gentle trails through the forest. The leather suede upper with Gore-Tex lining insures your feet stay dray and comfortable all day long.
With the AKU exclusive Elica Natural Stride System your weight is more evenly distributed across the sole and footbed of the shoe. This allows for better grip, a more anatomical stride, and less fatigue.
Keep your feet dry in all conditions with the integrated waterproof GORE-TEX Performance Comfort membrane.
The Michelin® Pulsar tread, inspired by mountain bike tires, offers a great grip as well as comfort on the trail.

Growing up in Europe I was somewhat familiar with the brand, however I never owned any.
For years, I bought Meindl shoes for all activities then switched to USA made Danners. I just happened to come across the usa/canada link as I was trying to order them from the Italian website. This website is great.
The quality of this shoe is great. The feel, weight and the fit is fantastic.
I bought these, just to use aroud town, and maybe a very simple trail, just as it recommends on the product page. I really do appreciate the graphs.
Just came back from SLC and vicinity for a week. They felt great, no break in needed. Were fine on nice groomed trails. Even with some snow on it. For muddy trails not so. For socks, I had a pair of compression Bombas, and even around 33 degrees, my feet were not cold.
The extra laces are a nice touch, they have a bit of slip on them, but nothing major. I appreciate the free shipping (and returns if needed) and no sales tax as they come from Canada.
So in short, a great shoe for around town, casual dinner, followed by a walk, stroll etc. Great fit/feel straiht out of the box.
These are great shoes! I thought the Cimon hiking boots were the best boots i have ever had ! These are just as good!! No break in period!
Great shoes, fit to size. Bought them for long walks with the dog.
