Arc’teryx Just Made a High-End Climbing Boot That’ll Make You the Envy of the Mountain
Lightweight, waterproof and grippy — what more could you want?
When it comes to climbing, proper equipment makes all the difference between a good and bad climb, so this summer make sure any mountaineering goes smoothly with Arc’teryx’s new Acrux LT GTX Boot. Designed for alpine and rock climbing, the boot features flexible SuperFabric® upper micro-plate technology that delivers on abrasion resistance all while remaining surprisingly lightweight thanks to the Vibram Litebase that reduces sole thickness by 50% and weight by 30%, so you won’t feel hindered or weighed down. A 3mm carbon plate with PU foam core allows heel-to-toe stiffness that works with the Vibram® Mont outsole to provide grip.
Like most pieces from the brand, the boots are outfitted with GORE-TEX technology that keeps them dry and breathable, meaning they’re suitable not just for the summer months and warmer climates, but more inclement weather, just as equipped to trek through snow as they are dry locales. Snag a pair just in time for the start of summer and get to climbing comfortably and deftly all season long.
