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 dry 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.

These are wonderfully made. Break in almost immediately, certainly within a few days. It seems only buy in N America and not EU/UK.
My second pair of Aku walking shoes. Bought them online so always worry about fit. No worries, fit, look and feel great. Now traveling in the UK so walking 20,000 steps each day and they are extremely comfortable.
Also have to say that I prefer to buy local but these were only available online.
Fit is very comfortable for my somewhat wide feet. Quality of workmanship on the shoes appears top notch but time will tell how they hold up after a long wet west coast winter. Report back
