Arc'teryx Acrux FL Approach Shoe - Women's Arc'teryx Acrux FL Approach Shoe - Women's
Arc'teryx amazes us with its protective, innovative, and performance-driven products, and the new Women's Acrux FL Approach Shoe is no exception. The Acrux FL has that same unique style and performance that we all expect from Arc'teryx. For starters, Arc'teryx constructed the Adaptive Fit liner separately from the upper in order to hug your foot with breathable, quick-drying mono-mesh for a truly customized fit. The Acrux FL also features a lightweight and surprisingly durable seamless upper designed to handle rock, snow, and ice with ease. This 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. Vibram's brand new MegaGrip rubber makes the Acrux's sole fine-tuned for any trail. Design features include a climbing zone with traction grooves, grippy inserts for smearing, RockGrip technology with anti-slip lugs, and a spherical heel shape for a smooth stride.

Arc'teryx Acrux SL Leather Approach Shoe - Women's Arc'teryx Acrux SL Leather Approach Shoe - Women's
There's something to be said about premium design, especially when it's technical application largely relates to visceral outdoor experiences. So it should come as no surprise that the Arc'teryx Women's Acrux SL Leather Approach Shoe is designed to make unwieldy terrain buckle in its presence--or so it leads you to believe. In order to separate itself from the other approach shoes in the Acrux SL line up, this SL features a leather upper that's equal parts durable, lightweight, and hydrophobic. Not only that, but the leather is designed to mold to the contours of your foot to reduce pressure points and hot spots. The Adaptive Fit Liner consists of a fixed internal stretch liner that promotes ample breathability and surrounds the foot for a sock-like fit and feel. The Ortholite footbed and EVA midsole maintain arch support, absorb harsh impacts, and promote day-long comfort. And, to bolster your defense against rocks, the laminated heel and toe cap assure protection, without endowing you with that lead-foot sensation at the forefront of the shoe. Meanwhile, a Y-Groove split heel is designed so it assures secure footing when navigating loose terrain, which further advocates for the use of this shoe in diverse conditions. And, because no approach shoe would be complete without tacky love, the Vibram Arc'teryx Light Approach sole features sticky climbing zones and smearing inserts for unimpeded grip, while the mountaineering heel tread assures traction when you need it most.
