THE STUDY OF THE LAST

Making a last is a long, painstaking process and for AKU represents years of experience in the design and production of top quality footwear.


The original AKU last is the matrix, the fruit of constant research into shaping the sole to provide anatomical support. Specific adaptations have given rise to various types of last, which differ according to the models and the specific use for which the product has been designed. There are narrow, elongated lasts for professional footwear in the MOUNTAIN segment designed to enhance precision and sensitivity in rock climbing. Wraparound, anatomical lasts are used for the TREKKING segment footwear, designed to offer stability and help dynamic action when walking on the very uneven, rough ground of mountain tracks. Soft, snug lasts are used for footwear in the ACTIVE segment, designed for light outdoor activities on undemanding, level grounds.
