Most of the AKU collection uses exclusive Vibram soles, both for the design and the specific shape of the sole, as well as the leather used in their making. The outsole is also designed for the specific needs and end use of the shoes. They have designed 3 different types of sole for mountain, trekking and active that have a particular abrasion-resistance.
- Internal Midsole System (IMS)
The is an exclusive technology used by AKU in the construction of the mounting pad, which combines the traditional nylon support structure with a microporous layer, placed on the inside of the instep. This system facilitates the perfect adaptation of the insole to the anatomy of the foot, guarantees an even distribution of pressure, prevents lateral and frontal displacement during intense use, also absorbs impacts and offers optimum comfort of the shoe last. In the IMS1 version the Internal Midsole System is combined with a thin external midsole of microporous EVA. In this way, thanks to the low profile of the midsole, maximum sensitivity, precision and reliability are guaranteed, to ensure a correct and immediate response to ground stresses.
GORE-TEX membrane is an exclusive technical insulating material that contains around 1.4 billion microscopic pores per square centimetre. These pores are approximately 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, but 700 times larger than a water vapour molecule. That way, water drops can't penetrate the membrane and water vapour can escape easily. GORE-TEX has designed 3 specific types of membrane for the footwear industry, each with specific functions.
- Elica Tech
An integrated system involving 3 different parts in the sole and midsole to accurately follow the shape of the foot's sole and fit to the normal heel and forefoot inclination to reduce impact and tension. Laboratory tests have proven that Elica footwear guarantees a more uniform pressure distribution across the foot compared to traditional footwear.
- Performance Fit
The wrapping fit and durability of mountaineering and hiking models guarantee the necessary precision and sensitivity for climbing over ice and rocks.
OrthoLite sockliners offer excellent cushioning thanks to their triple layer compressed layer construction that improve the way your feet fit the shoes. They are highly breathable, being made of polyurethane and manage moisture perfectly. Plus, they are lightweight and can be machine washed.
- Air 8000
The first of two systems developed by AKU to guarantee a high level of shoe breathability. It's a specially-made technical material that increases breathability over 24 hours by over 11 times when compared to conventionally-made material.
