Sustainable every step of the way.
Utilizing sustainable materials in almost every aspect of their construction, the Aku Men's Bellamont Plus Shoes are a direct result of Aku's commitment to producing more sustainable footwear. The shoe's leather upper is tanned through chrome-free practices, while the midsole and outsole are made from recycled materials. Not leaving comfort by the wayside, the Bellamont also features a soft microfiber footbed that's soft to the touch, and with a full-grain leather lining, it's certainly comfortable enough to keep you happy all day long.

Nice shoes, but no longer Italian

Nice shoes, over-all good construction, true to size. However, it seems they've gone a little far in their "green" construction techniques. The rubber soles have a recycled appearance, but what's just weird is the recycled organic material that's glued together to form the underside of the insole. It appears to be some sort of straw and wood chips. Come on guys. And the tongue is stamped Made In Romania, which is the deal breaker for me. I wanted Italian made shoes. They took the cheap route, so I'm no longer interested. I sent them back.
Are you guys expecting to get these in the MID Plus version as well?
