Product Description Item No.   10266880

The Arc'Teryx Men's Alpha FL GTX Approach Shoe is a waterproof approach shoe for the trail before the rock wall. The approach can be just as technical as the climb and keeping your feet protected along the way is important so you maintain your energy once you get to the crag. The Alpha FL GTX features an adaptive fit (non-removable) GORE-TEX® liner for waterproof/breathable performance at your feet. This shoe makes day hikes and approaches easy in wet or dry weather, with a super durable upper, made of PU coated nylon yarns, TPU high abrasion protection films and a 3D moulded heel and toe cap. That sounds super technical, and it totally is, but you'll also enjoy the clean, seamless look. The midsole is injected EVA with an injected TPU chassis and a Vibram® Approach outsole with Megagrip compound that will tear across challenging terrain between the trailhead and your destination.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

How to Find Your Foot Measurements

Use the following information to help you find your foot measurments, then select the relevant size from the tables below.

Things you'll need:

• A corner wall with a 90° angle or a cardboard box
• A sheet of paper, a pen and a ruler
• The same type of socks that you would normally wear with your hiking shoes or boots

Measure your foot:

With your foot placed on the ground, nestled in the 90° corner angle of the wall, make sure that your heal is touching the back wall, and that the side of your foot is touching the side wall.

Place a piece of paper underneath your foot and draw a line from directly in front of your big toe across to the side wall.

Then use your pen and ruler to draw a straight line intersecting the line that you just drew in front of your big toe, back towards the rear wall.

Use the above information to help you find your foot measurments, then select the relevant size from the tables below.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I hoped it would be. I've been wanting a pair of these since I first saw them. I needed shoes that are waterproof but not boots. I got a pair for my birthday and I was very pleased. They are snug but then I prefer my footwear that way. I wear a size 10 in "Five Ten" climbing shoes and these seem to fit the same. They are lightweight yet seem sturdy and stable. I haven't had them long enough to address the durability of them but I don't think that would be an issue unless you are very hard on shoes. Arcteryx has been very good to me in having anything repaired in any case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality. Comfortable built-in sock Bought them a few weeks ago and am currently using them for an around the world trip (RTW ticket) with mixed terrains (snow, desert, rocky, beach, etc). So far the shoes have been great! Only issues are the following: they were fully submerged in water as I was climbing some rocks in the ocean. Took a long time to get the sand out (still some trapped in there)....but the most frustrating thing is that they are still damp. Even after 4 days of wearing them, using a blow drier, etc. As such they are starting to smell a bit. They don't breathe much (to be expected of a "waterproof"/"resistant" shoe)...but are otherwise comfy and quite versatile. I was also hoping they'd blend in a bit more, but they are quite bulky. (I purchased online without seeing them in person).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sending in my second pair for repairs/warranty... Very disappointed with the durability and quality of these shoes. Sending back my second pair after six weeks of use is just unacceptable for $230 shoes. Arcteryx replaced the first pair and I hope they replace this pair, both were delimitation issues (Rand on first pair and sole on this pair). Tired of spending money and time to mail these shoes back, and at this point would really doubting the quality VS cost aspect of Arcteryx. Have had outerwear, clothes and now shoes from Arcteryx and the quality has seemed to go down over the years where prices have remained high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shoe Bought this shoe for planned trip to Switzerland in October. Have been breaking it in and they feel freat. No issue with having hot feet. ( was worried with goretex) fit great with inner liner. They did fit to size. Looking forward to wearing them on trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They rock my socks These shoes are awesome. I've been using them for short hikes and some are in pretty muddy areas. They're comfortable, easy to slip on and off without untying. I'm buying another pair that aren't so orange. I'd wear them 24/7 if I worked outside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable and comfortable fit. I've used this in relatively long approaches over the past 2 months. Fits true to size. Withstands a lot of abuse over rough uneven terrain and is comfortable for extended hiking. Only gripe is that the shoe laces are short.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall very good purchase I've owned these shoes about 10 months now and have worn them on city streets and for walks in the woods. I do not do much scrambling off trails. The shoe is comfortable once I got use to the snug fit ( I had to size up 1/2 size). Ii enjoy the solid feel against ground and the secure footing. The shoe, properly laced, feels great. One problem is that I need a shoehorn to get it on because the inner lining will slip down in the heel area without one. The lining is soft and could perhaps be worn without a sock but I wouldn't try that. The shoes with the red lining are attractive and I've been asked about them by many people. These are unusual shoes because they have less fabric in the build and more leather/rubber(?) which makes them a bit heavy for summer. Yet I wear them nevertheless. I had a pair of Salewa trail shoes and they were lighter and perhaps easier on the feet, but they did not have the secure feeling that the Arcteryx does nor the quality of the build.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great off trail waterproof Fit to size, great feel. Great traction on wet grounds. My only complaint is putting on, it's like a tight sock, I'm glad they have tabs to pull on, honestly don't even need laces. I do have a wide foot and I'm sure that doesn't help, again great shoe , they Are not a fast slip on.

Can i purchase the removable liner in different colors if i want to switch up the color of the liner?

Asked by: Dame
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! So sorry, but the only way to inter-change the liners in the Arc'teryx Acrux FL GTX Approach Shoes are to purchase more then one pair where you can switch them out.
