The AKU brand has over 40 years of experience in the footwear sector. Today, the manufacturer produces footwear models for the mountains, for hunting and for outdoor leisure activities. The idea of the company is simple, it is to become the irreplaceable companion during your adventures. For this, the raw materials used are selected on the basis of the highest quality standards, with particular attention to the issue of environmental impact.
The AKU story begins in a small Venetian town, Montebelluna, with Galliano Bordin who was himself the son of shoemakers. The name of the brand, which means "a legendary adventure", goes from Scandinavia to the Alps, passing through the Pacific Ocean. AKU is in fact the name of a benevolent spirit in one of the legends that populate the imagination of the natives of Easter Island. This short and easy to remember name has a meaning close to the sensibility of the company and the users of its products!
