NEW TECHNOLOGY: INTRODUCING ARC'TERYX ADAPTIVE FIT

Technical gear innovators at Arc’teryx have developed one of the year’s most exciting and unique footwear concepts, Adaptive Fit, which utilises a separately manufactured inner liner and outer shell for superior breathability, comfort and water resistance. 
The range’s top-of-the-line models also allow you to remove the inner liner and use it as a comfy and convenient camping slipper!


Why use Adaptive Fit?

Arc’teryx Adaptive Fit footwear has an inner liner and outer shell which are manufactured separately. The tiny gap between the inner and outer gives your feet space to breathe by letting heat and moisture escape and cool air enter. By eradicating the need for a tongue, the shoe maximises both breathability and water resistance.

 

In the Acrux2 FL (pictured) and Bora2 Mid, the inner liner can be removed and worn as a convenient and comfortable camping slipper (pictured). Having a removable inner also means that it can be easily cleaned (to prolong the life of the shoe) and that you can dry your footwear faster on and off the trail.

How Does it Work?

OUTER SHELL

The durable outer is a seamless one-piece upper which is laminated from four hydrophobic (fast-drying) layers:

 

  • A non-woven DWR-treated microfiber for a smooth internal surface
  • A textile woven with PU-coated nylon yarn for air flow and abrasion resistance
  • 2mm TPU film for integral upper support
  • 35mm abrasion TPU film reinforcement on the most exposed areas

The outer also includes a cushioned EVA midsole which moves freely in the heel for secure and flexible walking, 3D rubber components (which add extra protection to the heel and toe) and an OrthoLite insole.

 

The Men’s and Women’s Acrux designs (pictured) all use a grippy Vibram Arc’teryx Approach outsole with a climbing zone and spherical heel shape for better braking and stability.

 

The Men’s and Women’s Bora designs instead all use a Vibram Arc’teryx Hiking outsole with a climbing zone in the toe and two braking zones in the front and back for light via ferrata ascents.

INNER LINER

The inner is crafted with Gore-Tex Performance Comfort Stretch, which gives you a more comfortable and personal fit.

 

It also has an integrated EVA foam for even more breathability between the skin and outer shell.

 

The removable inner liner in the Acrux2 FL and Bora2 Mid both come with a protective rubber sole.
