“The most visible evidence of ALFA's sustainable commitment to date. ”
Use and repair the same shoes for generations.
Replace the parts that are damaged, not the whole shoe.
Save money and environment.
Tossing a shoe that is essentially fully functioning makes no sense. It is bad for the economy and worse for the environment. Even if parts of the shoe is worn out, it does not mean that the whole shoe needs to be thrown out and replaced with new shoes. We at ALFA believe we should be better at repairing our things.
Impact A/P/S GTX are designed to last by allowing care and repair. The shoes are built-up using full grain leather, a waxed outer layer and comes with a built in ALFA fit for added comfort. The leather is traceable, and the replaceable GORE TEX membrane allows for a water resistant boot that breathes.
The rubber outer adds protection, whilst the PU middle sole gives added stability, combined with a Vibram Grip AMG outer sole safeguarding a good grip on the surface. Impact A/P/S GTX shoes are produced in a factory in Italy where quality is at a high standard. The factory takes environment and health seriously. All materials and components are traceable and documented by means of ethics, environmental impact and animal welfare.
Each part of the shoe can be repaired and recycled when worn out. Impact A/P/S GTX comes fully equipped with a shoe bag and a maintenance product. If the shoes are maintained properly, they will adapt to your feet and last a lifetime. Impact A/P/S GTX are especially developed to last, and with this shoe you will receive an expanded warranty, 5 years covering production and material issues. If after 5 years you complete a 5 year service through ALFA you will receive a further 3 year warranty towards production and material issues.
