Arc'teryx nailed it on its first season's footwear lineup, and the Men's Acrux² FL Approach Shoe is the shining star for ultralight alpinists and hikers. The Acrux² FL has that same unique style and performance that we all expect from Arc'teryx. For starters, Arc'teryx constructed the removable Adaptive Fit liner separately from the upper in order to hug your foot with breathable, quick-drying mono-mesh for a truly customized fit.
Arc'teryx slipped Gore-Tex's Performance Comfort Stretch membrane inside the Adaptive Fit liner for extremely reliable waterproof, breathable protection. Unlike standard membranes that only provide partial coverage, Performance Comfort Stretch wraps entirely around the foot from top to bottom in order to maximize waterproof, breathable protection. Best of all, you can remove the Adaptive Fit liner and wear it on its own around the campsite for extra comfort. The liner has a rubberized bottom for traction and long-lasting durability, and you can always replace it with an Arc'teryx Gore-Tex Low Liners.
The Acrux² FL also features a lightweight and surprisingly durable seamless upper designed to handle rock, snow, and ice with ease. 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 films for enhanced support and durability. The two top lace holes have integrated reinforcements to reduce stretching.
Underfoot, Arc'teryx equipped the Acrux² 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 Acrux²'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.
