 Zero Impact Leather Range, 202 kb

Dani was the first to develop Zero Impact leather using a cutting-edge process that replaces chrome and heavy metals during tanning, reduces CO2 levels emitted by 5% and cuts the remainder to zero via certified reforestation operations.

AKU’s “Plus” range of boots and shoes includes the Alpina Plus boot, which has been engineered for light hiking. It comes in chrome free leather with a chrome free leather lining or a Gore-Tex lining, both of which are waterproof and breathable. It features a Vibram sole made from a Megagrip compound that provides good grip on wet terrain: perfect for British weather.
