Show Description

Comfortable for everyday wear, yet burly for scrambling around at the crag, the versatile Arakys is built for approaches in the backcountry or urban gym. The unique closure can be cinched down or opened with one hand, and the heel collapses down to slip your feet in when it's time to belay.

  • Abrasion-resistant ripstop upper is lightweight and durable.
  • TPU film overlay and rubber toe bumper and heel caps resist abrasion and protect feet.
  • Stretch liner conforms to your foot for a custom fit.
  • Collapsible heel.
  • Leather footbed provides comfort and arch support, while being barefoot friendly.
  • EVA midsole cushions underfoot and provides stability and support in technical terrain.
  • Vibram® MegaGrip™ rubber outsole provides confident footing in varied terrain.
  • Tread pattern has climbing zone under toes and mid- and rear-foot lugs for travel on trails.
