Arc’teryx Arakys Approach Shoe

Arc’teryx technologies combine in an innovative, ultra-light approach shoe that works on the rock, on approach, and transitions to everyday use. Truly functional on technical terrain, the Arakys has a unique one-hand closure and memory buckle feature that allows for easy on and off. The leather footbed is barefoot friendly, and the air-permeable, laminated upper is comfortable in summer conditions. A collapsible heel turns the shoe into a comfortable belay slipper.
