Versatile women's approach shoe

The Arcteryx Arakys Women's shoe is according to Arc'teryx "the first ultralight bouldering and single pitch approach shoe". We love this versatile product and feel that it is ideal as a good weather crag approach shoe, for low grade clambering and bouldering, as a slip on between problems (the heel folds flat), or as a pack flat travel shoe for road, track or trail or as a summery shoe that can handle anything for a stroll on the beach to your favourite bar to a hike into the hills.

With a simple one hand closure and memory buckle you get a quick easy perfect fit and rapid removal. The collapsible heal means that you can wear them as a belay slipper, whilst the rear pull tab means they can stow them on your harness. The leather sole is barefoot friendly and the air-permeable upper is ideal for warm climates.
The outsole is supportive, sticky and light use Vibram Megagrip rubber for grip on wet and dry surfaces. The tread is great off-road and has a climbing zone.
