The Arc'Teryx Women's Bora Mid GTX Hiking Boot is a GORE-TEX® hiking boot for dry feet and proper footing along the trail. The Bora Mid GTX boot combines stability, comfort and protection as you explore trails, near home and into the mountains with pack upon your back. The non-removable, 2 layer stretch nylon mono-mesh with stretch GORE-TEX® laminate liner with EVA foam core wraps your foot, providing cushion and waterproof/breathable protection. The upper is all about durability against dirt, rocks and water, made from PU coated yarns, TPU high abrasion protection films and 3D moulded heel and toe cap. The injected EVA midsole provides underfoot cushion with a 14mm drop and the injected TPU chassis adds much needed support as you walk. Arc'Teryx worked with Vibram® to create the Vibram® Arc'Teryx Hiking outsole to make the best contact with the trail via a durable rubber with all the grip, traction and braking a hiker would want.

ARC'TERYX MEASUREMENT GUIDE
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.

I normally wear a 12 NARROW, my heel narrower than my toe. Also, my feet are very bony with a moderately high arch. Does this boot come in this size and are they appropriate for skinny, long,narrow, bony feet? (Opt me out of all marketing emails)
Asked by: 12 narrow
Thanks for reaching out to us! If the size doesn't specify a narrow or wide width, the width is consider regular. As you most likely already know, boots need to be tried on and fitted with the appropriate socks in order to determine exact sizing as all feet are unique. You're more then welcome to order and try on the boots to see if they will work. If they don't, shoes are able to be returned without any return shipping fees when you choose to use one of our prepaid UPS return labels.
