SL Trek GTX
Source: received it as a sample, freebie, or prize (AKU)
Handcrafted. Good looking. Rugged. The AKU SL Trek GTX has it all.
- Hard wearing
The SL Trek GTX combines a number of killer features into a very comfortable and capable package. AKU constructs the upper from a combination of nubuck leather and Gore-Tex-lined breathable mesh which we found to be supportive and kept us cool in our tests.
To improve protection and stability of the boot, AKU wraps the exterior in a proprietary polyurethane exoskeleton – essentially a plastic reinforcing grid – that covers both sides and toe of the boot. Further reinforcements include a leather toe cap and heel counter.
