The Makra Light GTX is and agile all-rounder that have been perfectly designed to suit those looking to tackle via feratas or just straightforward alpine tours. Delivering incredible versatility thanks to its mid-cut design, the Makra Lights provides the wearer with the benefits of a low cut model on the ascents but much needed stability on the descents. Featuring a special 2-zone lacing system with mechanical lace lock system, the upper can be easily adapted to suit any terrain, making it possible to have tighter lacing at the ankle and more relaxed lacing at the upper section of the boot. Whatsmore, this lightweight boot is equipped with a cushioned midsole to keep you comfortable on those long days on the trial and give you a good ‘feel’ for the terrain underfoot.

Leather production has a significant impact on the planet, using excessive amounts of water and polluting it with harmful chemicals. Certain organisations and producers are making efforts to reduce the environmental impact of leather production on the planet, such as non-profits like the Leather Working Group, who have been auditing the leather manufacturing process from tanneries to retailers since 2005, and Perwanger, a quality leather producer prioritizing the environment
Products using natural fibres can range from cotton to wool to hemp and silk - but by being naturally made, they will also naturally biodegrade at their end of lifecycle. Even if you have a natural fibre product, it can probably still be recycled or repurposed before being disposed of. However, if it truly has reached the end of its use, natural fibres need air to biodegrade so please don't dispose of them in landfill.
