Handcrafted. Good looking. Rugged. The AKU SL Trek GTX has it all.

Pros

  • Rugged
  • Comfortable
  • Hard wearing

Cons

  • Hard to find

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.
