AKU Military Boots - Fit for Purpose

Pilgrim boots were developed and tested in the UK by Trekitt, a Hereford based specialist retailer with a wealth of experience in technical footwear and clothing. Based close to the Brecon Beacons Trekitt were perfectly placed to put the Pilgrim through a rigorous and demanding testing regime.

All Pilgrim boots are manufactured by AKU, an Italian company with more than thirty years' experience in the design and production of high quality trekking and outdoor footwear. Each boot is made with a genuine love for manufacturing, built on the age-old prestigious tradition of Italian workmanship. AKU share production between their plant in Montebelluna, in the province of Treviso and a second production facility in Romania.

Continuous investment in materials research, technological designs, and production craftsmanship have made AKU the undisputed leader in comfort and fit for all applications.

Our boots

AKU Pilgrim gives you two boots for all conditions. Pilgrim DS for dry hot climates and Pilgrim GTX for wet temperate climates. Two boots with the same fit for confidence in all terrains and conditions.

Our Technology

A combination of technologies developed by AKU make the Pilgrim one of the most technically advanced and high performance boots available today.

  • Air 8000

    The technological advantage of the Pilgrim DS and Pilgrim GTX over “normal” fabric boots is the use of AIR 8000 fabrics.

  • Vibram Sole

    Our boots use a Vibram sole which was selected for its more stable platform, deep self-cleaning lugs and positive heel brake for increased traction when descending.

  • IMS – Internal Midsole System

    IMS is designed to reduce the risk of injury and increase stability when load carrying.
