Coming, as it does, from a British Columbia outdoor clothing company that is named after the ancient link between dinosaur and bird, it should come as little surprise that the new Arc’teryx TR GTX Hiking Boot borrows its equally esoteric name from a star system located roughly 321 lightyears away from Earth.
Make no mistake, Arc’teryx endeavors to enter a whole new galaxy of performance with the Arc’teryx TR GTX. Created for the serious hiker, this highly technical boot is constructed specifically for multi-day routes in challenging terrain.
Your back may strain under the load of your heavy backpack, but the Arc’teryx TR GTX promises to save your feet thanks to a proprietary micro-plated technology that provides exceptional support and promotes outstanding flexibility all while weighing just 26.6 ounces per boot. This shoe is also designed for maximum durability and comfort with a Vibram Megagrip outsole and a waterproof yet breathable Gore-Tex insert.
