In the film, three totally different stories are set in the same number of unique and wild environments. Three different ways of living and walking. The same way of perceiving walking, like searching for and bonding with everything that surrounds us.
Every story begins with a first step, the most difficult, and before setting off on any walk a pair of shoes are needed. In fact, the three stories start inside the AKU factory where all the models of the collection are conceived, from mountaineering to trekking models and models for active leisure pursuits. Right there in the place where the stories become a source of inspiration for creating footwear that instills the same passion, attention to detail and respect for the environment whoever wears it.
