Boots designed for women have a number of common features based on the different shape of the female foot: more pronounced foot arch; narrower heel, toecap and instep; a wider bellows tongue enables easier stepping-in; the boot cuff which tapers at the rear to ease pressure on the calf.
Shoe for modern hiking activities, AKU Transalpina GTX W’S combines values of traditional manufacturing skills with new technical solutions. The upper combines suede with AIR 8000® in a functional and modern design, coupled with an innovative IMS³ triple density outsole and an Exoskeleton system for an optimal cushioning of the arch.
