ZOO Adventure loves nature!

Naturally in nature

Have you ever been to a rubber plantation? The resin seeping from the barks is as smooth as honey but the smell brings you back to reality: it’s not sweet. A wonderful natural product, so milky, so serene, yet difficult to imagine that this substance is also used in our outsoles. But if you walk between the cacao trees, that by the way don’t look as delicious as the tasty chocolate coffee beans on your supermarket shelf, it takes a bit of imagination to turn this strange-looking bean into a delicious bar of chocolate. Unprocessed products straight from the heart of nature, a perfect element for the ZOO Adventure collection.

Sturdy and robust

There are more than enough flat areas to discover in the Low Countries, and particularly those in white with black or black with white. No, we are not talking about elegantly striped beings. These creatures also live in warm, hilly and rugged landscapes. From Holland to South America and in Brazil, these sturdy figures have their feet firmly on the ground. We are talking about cows, sturdy cows, not the Italian variety. Anyone thinking that the best skins come from Italy is sorely mistaken: skins come from across the globe but are treated in places like Southern Europe. The Italians do, however, have class and a rich and stylish flair and that can be seen in the final product. ZOO Adventure stays close to nature and wants its product to have its feet firmly on the ground so we use high-quality and functionally treated skins from Southern Europe.

Acquastop membrane with your coffee

The nubuck leather skins with their authentic look and feel bring you a step closer to the early morning dew. Even if you slip into a ditch, wearing ZOO Adventure, it will not ruin your day. The patented Acquastop membrane ensures that your feet are well-equipped to remain dry and can breathe. The membrane sits between the lining and the upper leather. At our request, the tannery treats our skins with an extra touch, like Titan polish of the carwash or a golden Cleopatra serum of the Beauty salon. ZOO Adventure impregnates the skins with water and stain repellent gas so they are ready to brave the world. Reliability during your walk, enjoying the comfort embracing your feet and the ease with which you can follow your path to a hot cup of coffee or tea.

Homely comfort 

ZOO Adventure has chosen the materials with care, only those suitable for outdoor activities. And not just to give your newly landscaped lawn a mow, but especially for long walks; for true outdoor lovers and the recreationalists among us.  Feel as if you are stepping into a warm bed, preferably your own - your own footbed  even, enabling you to feel even more at home with ZOO Adventure. The general experience is that you start wearing them for 3 or 4 days during your ritual dog walks but it doesn’t take long before they accompany you into town and, in the winter months, the boot perfectly suits your work outfit. Comfort, quality and reliability, snug satisfaction, emotions stimulated by ZOO Adventure.  

Pleasure in every season

The drops in June that cumulate in almost tropical rainfall when you are only half way on your journey. I’m sure you are familiar with this scene, you must be considering we are getting more and more days of rainfall in Europe. And there is also all kinds of muck between the showers which you traipse through in your sandals. So it’s great that ZOO Adventure is also suitable for this season. Easy to pull on and off and, if you prefer, we also have ankle boots.

ZOO Adventure also protects you in the winter months when cold, strong winds and layers of snow will not obstruct your path. Your feet will remain warm and dry, which is certainly fine and makes you feel better all over. They can make your outdoor life so much more pleasurable and practical. And they contribute to an intense feel good factor on your return, the moment when, with runny nose, you snuggle up in front of the open fire rather than having to jump in a warm shower to defrost your shivering bones. Instead you can go straight to pouring your well-deserved cognac, red wine or hot chocolate.

Awareness

Zoo Adventure has consciously chosen to use elements with all the ingredients of quality, functionality, comfort, durability, an appealing look and feel and convenience. The ZOO Adventure boots have been tested for their water-repellency at the Portuguese CTCP Centro Technologico do Calcado institute and meet the highest requirements. ZOO Adventure is continually working on maintaining and improving quality.
