Arc'teryx takes its trusted performance to footwear with the Men's Acrux FL Approach Shoe providing the utmost ultralight performance for alpinists and hikers. The Acrux FL has that same unique style and performance that we all expect from Arc'teryx.

This seamless upper features a non-woven, DWR-treated internal surface that sheds wet weather, PU-coated nylon for air permeability and abrasion-resistance, and TPU film for enhanced support and durability. The two top lace holes have integrated reinforcements to reduce stretching. Underfoot, Arc'teryx equipped the Acrux FL with a premium injected EVA midsole designed for stability and enhanced braking. The 3D molded toe and heel caps buffer impact, offer rock protection, and resist cracking for durability. There's also an anatomical arch shank, and the custom-developed 3D molded Ortholite footbed offers maximum comfort and breathability.

Let the Millet Men's Friction Approach Shoe keep your foot prime and ready for the crag. Millet constructed the Friction's low-cut upper out of reinforced leather to keep it surprisingly durable for how lightweight it is. The Hygiene footbed is quick to dry and antimicrobial so the Friction won't end up smelling like your old pair of climbing shoes, and the dual-density EVA midsole absorbs shock and offers all the comfortable support you need to make it to the crag and back without an aching foot. A rubber rand at the toe and heel as well as reinforced rubber at the toe keep this shoe strong for many years. Millet equipped this approach shoe with partially recycled Vibram EcoStep for excellent traction over slabby, slippery surfaces, and Climbing Zone places extra rubber over the toe to ensure proper grip on steep approaches.
