Size and fit

Arc'teryx Acrux TR GTX is a hiking shoe for men and women. It uses a lace-up closure system for a nice fit.  Meanwhile, the to-toe construction helps wearers achieve a lockdown around the toebox.


The footwear features Vibram® MegaGrip™ outsole which is known for its superior grip on wet and dry surfaces. It’s well-suitable for trekking, travel, hiking, multisport activities, and fly fishing. Since Vibram rubber is moldable, it makes a good material for varying outsole shapes and patterns. Meanwhile, the aggressive lug geometry gives the shoe strong traction.


This premium trekking shoe from Arc'teryx uses an injected EVA midsole that provides long-wearing cushion and support. Unlike traditional compression midsoles, injected EVA midsoles tend to be thinner (up to half the size of traditional midsoles). This makes Acrux boots really lightweight for its class.

Furthermore, injected EVA midsoles are softer and have an increased bounce to them. Although they tend to crease quicker after some time of use.

For further comfort and support, a 4mm OrthoLite™ 3D molded insert is added. The unique open-cell structure of Ortholite insoles is designed to keep moisture away from the foot, leaving it fresher, drier, and cooler.


Arc'teryx Acrux TR GTX has an upper made from SuperFabric® that is abrasion-resistant, breathable, quick-drying, and water-resistant. This special type of fabric is constructed by infusing tiny, hard guard plates into the fabric, also called “micro-plated technology”. SuperFabric® is also super light, which completes the overall lightweight construction of Acrux TR GTX.

The boot also features a GORE-tex lining that is completely waterproof. Thus, hikers can walk on muddy paths, and even hop on running water without worrying about their feet getting wet. Furthermore, it comes with an integrated sticky rubber toe cap for protection and a TPU chassis at the midfoot and forefoot for better stability and torsional rigidity.
