Why We
Made This...


The DFS Rock collection uses a ground breaking Dual Fit System (“DFS”) to give you both maximum comfort during your approach and high performance fit while climbing and scrambling. The Rock DFS has two separate lace zones that utilize lightweight webbing that wraps around and under your foot which enables you to customize your shoe for the fit you want. The Rock DFS midsole incorporates a lightweight EVA foam for cushioning and a polyurethane heel for durability and support. The midsole is then wrapped with sticky climbing rubber to protect your shoe and to provide extra grip. Together with a Vibram Approcciosa sole with Megagrip, the resulting Rock DFS offers a high-performance approach shoe for all day comfort.

How We
Use This...

Best fitting low hiking shoe I’ve ever owned. This is my second pair. I wore the first every day at work as a painter till they wore to completely flat on the sole. Great traction walking on roofs and the solid bottoms are excellent standing on ladders. Then I head to the trail after work and I’m ready to roll.

That’s why I bought 3 more pairs. To last me years to come. My first pair have lasted well over a year and still not worn out .

After a long search...I'm delighted

Starting 3 months ago, I started looking for a good, low-cut hiker that would fit my slightly wider than normal feet. I ended up purchasing 4 different sets of shoes from different companies, trying each on for an hour or so then switching, and while each had something good about them, ultimately none of them fit well. There was always a slight squeeze or pinch on my right foot. For 2 weeks I emailed back and forth with Patricia the AKU rep in Canada and she did all she could to help get info from the maker in Italy, but I still had to bite the bullet and purchase a pair and try them on and compare them with the others. To my amazement, the DFS regular size 10 fit better than all the others, even the Vasque Breeze AT 10 wide. Part of the problem has been that the few companies that make wide sizes have had their stock emptied after what's now been 2 years of COVID, but even companies like KEEN and Merrell seem to run smaller than the W designation given them.

What I can confidently say is that AKU's sizing system, which follows the regular 'D' shoe sizing system, fits well, as the mondo size is slightly bigger than normal...making it a blessing for people like me.

My new DFS are amazingly comfortable and the 2 lace system is great for tightening up part of the shoe without restricting where it might pinch. Out of the box, they not only fit well, but are supple and don't need a lot of work to break them in. Also of special note, is that the orthotic insoles that come with the shoes are great; most companies seem to be cheaping out in this area to save costs. To have a good insert come with the shoe is a money saver.

This is my 1st pair of AKU, but definitely won't be my last.

Thanks, Patricia.

Thanks, AKU.
