Size and fit

The Aerios FL Mid GTX is a relatively true-to-size day hiking shoe for male and female adventurers. It is offered in standard width. The footgear’s length options include whole and half sizes. Its conventional lacing system permits the wearer to have a secure and personalized fit.

Outsole

Enabling outdoor lovers to traverse virtually all types of terrain is the Arc’teryx Aerios FL Mid GTX’s Vibram outsole. It employs a combo of rectangle and square-shaped lugs to render traction on wet and dry surfaces. This component is made of a Megagrip rubber compound which allows it to withstand constant ground contact. Its rear area is filled with grooves to aid the user in negotiating downhill slopes.

Midsole

The Arc’teryx Aerios FL Mid GTX compressed EVA midsole allows hikers to traverse challenging trails with ample comfort and stability. It is engineered to absorb shock and promote responsiveness. A thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) shank is integrated into the midsole to imbue the shoe with rigidity. Both of these components work in tandem with an Ortholite footbed for added cushioning and arch support. Its construction also wicks moisture to promote underfoot comfort.

Upper

The Arc’teryx Aerios FL Mid GTX is equipped with an upper made of Cordura mesh, a material known for its lightness and abrasion-resistance. It is lined with a Gore-Tex membrane to keep the user’s foot dry from various wet conditions. This component’s microporous surface also permits excess moisture and heat to escape, allowing the wearer’s foot to breathe.

The forefoot area of this low-top hiking shoe features a TPU toe cap for added durability and protection from accidental bumps. A rand made of the same material wraps around this Arc’teryx product, making it resistant to wear and tear. Its closure system is comprised of several eyelets and a pair of hooks for fit management. The shoe’s tongue features a pull tab which facilitates an easy on and off.
