Extremely versatile and comfortable for walking along valley bottoms or gentle trails through the forest. Made completely from chrome free leather both inside and out, the relaxed fit La Val Low Plus will give you miles of comfort with almost zero environmental impact.
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.
The Michelin® Pulsar tread, inspired by mountain bike tires, offers a great grip as well as comfort on the trail.
All the leather used in the creation of the La Val II Plus is sourced from the Italian leather tannery Dani, who forgoes the use of heavy chemicals in the treatment of the leather so you can be sure your boots are made with as little environmental impact as possible.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
We create our footwear using lasts based on real feet. Because of this we make it easy to find your perfect fit.
1st. Step onto a piece of paper and mark just behind your heel and in front of your longest toe.
2nd. Do this for both feet and then measure the centimeters between these lines. This measurement is your Mondopoint.
3rd. Using the measurement from your longest foot find your correlating size below.
I recently received these shoes and they are definitely a class above the shoes I normally buy.
They have a great sole, and appear to be very well made. The only con is they are very heavy. It's ok because it feels like I am getting a little workout when I wear them.
I have a slightly narrow foot and higher arch. I have lots of light hiker/casual shoes, mostly because I’m not completely happy with what I have. I think I’ve finally found it. I have la Val low, rapid air and rapid air gtx.
I've received several unsolicited comments about how good they look. You can dress them up or dress them down, so very versatile. Most importantly, I have received very positive feedback from my feet!!!!!!
