The ascent never looked easier when wearing a pair of the Acrux SL Approach Shoes. These new SL Approach shoes by ARC’TERYX were specifically designed for technical approaches and difficult terrain, but they also make for the perfect all-round hiking and trail shoe. The Approach line has been around for a while but what makes these so special is the SL – Super Light. At 10.6 grams you can’t go wrong, especially if you’re conserving your energy for a full day in the backcountry. Similar to all the other Approach shoes, these SL’s are crafted with unconventional seamless PU-coated nylon uppers, abrasion resistant overlays, integrated rubber toe cap and an adaptive fit-lite liner. These shoes were not designed to wade in water, but the air permeable liner will keep out debris and resist water, giving you complete confidence regardless the trail conditions. For added grip, the outsole was crafted from Vibram’s Megagrip rubber compound while the injected EVA midsole and Ortholite footbed provides uncompromising comfort and performance.
