Arc'teryx Footwear

Starting from Spring 2015 Arc'teryx will introduce shoes and boots!
The new Arc'teryx footwear will have interesting, innovative features
  • removable, stretchable liner utilising Gore-Tex® Performance Comfort™ Stretch Membrane combined with air-permeable EVA foam
  • seamless, fully laminated, and fully hydrophobic outer shell with woven PU coated nylon yarn large insert area on the sides
The Alpha2 FL shoes and the Bora2 MID boots will both have a light, tough, air-permeable TPU-coated Nylon yarn with additional reinforcing TPU films all heat-laminated together, combined with a light EVA mid sole and a Vibram® rubber sole. The fully hydrophobic upper offers extremely quick drying ability and
maximised breathability thanks to the woven PU coated nylon yarn large insert area.

The removable inner boot offers the advantage of improving wash- and dry-ability and can be worn as hut/camp shoe, as well as an outstanding fit. The fully stretchable inner boot is snug and comfortable, as it adapts to each individual fit with the absence of a bulky tongue. 

The separate construction of the upper leaves a minute air space between the shell and the liner, acting as a conduit for air exchange and moisture dispersion.

The Vibram® sole has a climbing zone and spherical heel shape for good grip both on ascent and descent.

New Arc'teryx Harnesses 

Changes are going on inside of the new generation of Arc'teryx harnesses. The warp yarns are now fixed onto the backing material to prevent them from moving inside of the harness. Reinforced and slightly padded edges are added before the lamination of the harness, offering more comfort and stabilizing the edges of belt and leg loops. The outer material is the sturdy Burly Double Weave.

The women’s harnesses offer slightly changed geometry, with a longer belay loop (+3,5 cm) that matches the higher pelvic and minimizes the tension between leg loops and swami belt.
