Explore big terrain.

June 24, 2019

As boundaries for hikers expand, boots that can comfortably partner with them on the journey are an essential tool. Built for trusted support during technical multiday treks, the Acrux TR GTX boot is a lightweight option that is comfortable, durable and designed to support heavy loads. The best partner a multiday hiker could ask for. 

Support and fit – TPU chassis provides stability 

Comfort and flexibility – Injected EVA midsole delivers cushion and comfort 

Durability and abrasion resistance – SuperFabric® micro-plate technology is extremely abrasion resistant 

OVERCOMING A DESIGN CHALLENGE 

When designing the Acrux TR GTX boot, Arc’teryx Design Director, Greg Grenzke faced an issue of balance. How could it be lightweight and still stand up to the elements over longer durations like a multi day trip? 

“We needed to create a boot that could withstand the rigors of rugged terrain, keep you protected and comfortable, and be light enough to help you rack up the mileage without causing fatigue. The challenge was working with all those elements in mind and finding a solution that brought them all together. What we ended up with is a well rounded mix that works really well and delivers maximum performance for the user.” 

Greg Grenzke, Design Director 

SOLID PROTECTION IN WILD PLACES 

The Acrux TR GTX boot is lightweight by design without compromising durability. It offers great underfoot support when travelling on technical terrain and carrying heavy loads. The balance is achieved by using micro-plated SuperFabric® on the upper for flexibility, agility, comfort, and abrasion resistance. 

An aggressive 5mm Vibram® Megagrip sole provides powerful traction on rugged terrain. Injected EVA midsole delivers underfoot support with long-wearing cushion and comfort. Stability is further increased by the raised cuff that provides much-needed ankle support on multiday ventures and GORE-TEX gives durable waterproof, breathable protection and climate control.
