The Arc'teryx Men's Acrux FL Approach Shoe is a technical shoe for navigating your way from the trail head to the crag or just exploring advanced trails for a day. Arc'teryx has stepped into the shoe-world this year with a vengeance and in doing so, brings you the Acrux FL, a super durable performance shoe with breathable liner. The upper is seamless, made from a combination of PU coated yarns, TPU protection films, with a 3D moulded heel and toe cap. While the stretch nylon monomesh liner is non-removable, it is still air permeable, so your foot can breath and the liner itself can dry quickly. The Arc'Approach with Megagrip compound outsole has been created special with Vibram®, for stellar grip along technical terrain, a little climbing action, and easy braking. I think Arc'teryx may have just opened up a whole new sort of awesome in your adventures.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely satisfied with this product I was a bit doubtful at the beginning about investing in a product that will be the initial attempt at shoes by Arc'teryx, however those worries were quickly put to rest with my first uses. The engineering behind the shoe is obvious, to take the constraints and challenges around footwear and to resolve them with fundamental science seems obvious, but seemingly hasn't been done until now. I used these for a mix of cave/rock scrambling and loose dirt hiking. The grip and stability was better than any other shoe I've tried. The braking was excellent and the comfort was superb, the lining truly does give a custom fit. Kenzo

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great shoe, comfortable...two drawbacks I just bought these shoes and broke them in a bit and then went for an 11 mile hike in the Big Basin Redwood State Park. Overall I love the shoes - they are comfortable (see below) and seem rugged. The served me well on the 4 hour hike.,,,,Two potential drawbacks...,,1. I loved the shoes on flats and uphill. On the downhills though, my feet seemed to slide forward in the shoe (yes, I have the sizing right). I think it's the design on the liner inside the shoe.,,,,2. When I first started on the hike, after about 10 mins, the top of my feet were hurting. I thought it was just break in needed. But then I realized the issue is that without a tongue, the laces can press into your foot. So you can't tie the shoes as tightly as you otherwise might (at least on the lower part of the laces). Once I may an adjustment, then it was fine.,,,,Overall - I really like these shoes.,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Waited a long time for the Bird to manke shoes and boy was it worth the wait. Superbly comfortable they actually seem to propel you along. The inner "sock" was a concern at first as it hit right on my ankle bone but within 30 minutes I didn't notice it anymore. I sized down from an 11 to a 10.5 and the fit is terrific. A majestic shoe and once more Arc'teryx is sure to shake up the industry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit for non-fat feet I was excited to see this first version shoe from Arcteryx as I have several other pieces of clothing from them and I really like their 'athletic' fit. I have tried several brands of trail/hiking shoes looking for a good fit, but I find my medium/narrow foot ends up swimming in so many other shoes. Many other company's toe-boxes are just too wide and I can never get a snug fit. When I saw this model, the first thing that jumped out at me was that the laces go nearly all the way to the toe of the shoe. Even if you don't have narrow feet you should appreciate this feature as it allows you to customize your fit. This shoe has exceeded my expectations with zero break-in time. Instantly comfortable out of the box. The liner feels like a custom fitted mold to my foot and that all but eliminates hot spots. It is very breathable (I wore them to the beach) and the high toe cap is perfect for protecting you on rock scrambles. One hesitation that I had was the tongue free design, but upon receiving the shoe I realized that there is a lightweight mess tongue that you don't notice in the pictures (it's the same color as the bootie and it goes from the front of the shoe up to the fifth eyelet). It keeps out any small items that may try to wedge in between the bootie and the shoe. Overall, this is the best outdoor shoe I've had in years. FYI - In regards to sizing, use the Arcteryx measurement guide and actually follow their steps to measure your foot. I normally wear a 10 1/2 in a Cole Haan dress shoe and an 11 in Nike running shoes and the 10 1/2 Arcteryx size is absolutely perfect for me. I'm glad I used their measurement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Impressive and progressive design. I had to size down 0.5 sizes. I'm normally a 10 but had to get a 9.5 to avoid heal slipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pay attention to sizing! I haven't put these through any torture tests yet but I can tell they are of the high quality that you would expect from arcteryx. The soles are beefy and the heel is a little taller than I expected. So as far as sizing goes, I tried to follow the Arcteryx sizing guide and according to that I should have got a 9.5 U.S.. I was hesitant because I wear a 10.5 in almost every other shoe I own. I ended up getting the size 10 and it is tight but comfortable. In my experience, the shoes run pretty true to size. I will likely get the goretex boot as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Normally Arcteryx is so functional.... Arcteryx needs more 'developing' on this shoe. The idea of a shoe--not featuring a tongue & instead using a footie liner is fine, yet part of my issue is that Arcteryx still recommends the use of a thin sock. The neoprene liner and a sock is 'confusing'. Lol I ended up returning these most b/c my ankle bone would rub too often on the shoe. Overall really wished to like these, the quality of materials seem to be stellar the outer shoe construction bonding is impressive. The Vibram sole is similar in design found on brand Salewa, but corrects to improves sole so it isn't as slippery on wet surfaces. Width was bit narrow but not uncomfortable even on a my wider foot. Size I thought was true. Laces seemed fine to me, and like the secure heel lace option, & I would use it--there was a bit of heel movement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good approach shoe but uncomfortable if you have big ankles First let me say this is an excellent approach shoe if it fits you well. It is exceptionally comfortable for how well it climbs. It climbs almost as well as my Gandas, and for all practical purposes is more than enough for any outing in my opinion. For example, I had no problems doing Jtree v0s in these shoes. For me though, the ankle cutouts are not deep enough which results in the edges of the shoes digging into my ankles. So for the time being, I think I will have to find a different approach shoe...

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.
