    Arc'teryx Arakys Approach Shoe - Men's

    Getting to crag isn't as always easy as it sounds, so Arc'teryx designed its Men's Arakys Approach Shoe to be as comfortable navigating steep, rocky scrambles as it is at the crag. Arc'teryx made the Arakys with a lightweight ripstop nylon upper with laminated TPU film overlays for extra protection from wear, and integrated a sticky rubber toe cap for extra bite on small edges and chips. Switching between climbing shoes and the Arakys is easy, courtesy of the one-handed memory buckle closure and the collapsible heel that quickly converts the shoe into a comfortable slipper when you're on belay. The Arakys is built on a TPU chassis to keep it stiff and stable when the terrain is anything but mellow, and has a lightweight Vibram sole with a Megagrip compound for sure and solid footing during those more questionable approaches.

  • Seamless ripstop nylon upper
  • TPU film overlays
  • Sticky rubber toe cap
  • One hand memory buckle closure
  • Collapsible heel

    Scarpa Zen Pro Shoe - Men's

    When Scarpa decided to upgrade the wildly popular Zen, it looked at every aspect of the shoe and found ways to make it better. The result is the new and improved Men's Zen Pro Hiking Shoe. The suede upper has been upgraded with PU-injected reinforcing for improved abrasion-resistance. The cushy EVA midsole is now injected for longer life. The Vibram sole has been upgraded to the Spyder 2, which still offers great stick, but won't pick up pebbles and gravel. Even the fit has been upgraded with Scarpa's Sock-Fit DV system for the feel of a running shoe but the sensitivity of an approach shoe. Add to that a durable rubber toe rand, P-Flex footbed, and moisture-wicking Cocona lining, and it's easy to see how all these upgrades will enhance your next climbing experience.

  • Suede and recycled poly Airmesh upper
  • Cocona lining
  • P-Flex footbed
