The Arcteryx Norvan VT GTX Mens is a high performance Gore-Tex® supportive trail running shoe, equipped to allow it user to move at speed over unpredictable terrain. With the added feature of an ascending/scrambling mode, this shoe is versatile enough to be also used for scrambling and crag approach.
It features an innovative lacing system which can be set at: high for running mode, when the foot requires the volume to splay during impact, and low for climbing/scrambling mode, when the foot requires a precise and tighter fit when ascending. To put the Norvan VT GTX into ascend mode, you simply loop the lace into the anterior lace loop. This reduces the volume of the shoe and pulls you onto the ball of the foot, for a supportive and precise fit while scrambling. To return to run mode, the lace is simply released, thus restoring the volume required for running. Genius!
The Adaptive Fit Liner consists of a stretchy, waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex® sock, which ensures a precise fit whilst having the added benefit of keeping unwanted debris out. The 360° Support System consists of 3 pieces of webbing across the foot, which are internally fixed at either side and and an external non-stretch PU coated synthetic wrap is applied to the entire forefoot area. These technologies enable the foot to be fully supported and all work to create a superior fit, giving comfort and confidence whilst you're out running.
The sole unit is stable, creating a dynamic toe and also provides a comfortable landing, thanks to the exceptional shock absorption of the EVA/Polyolefin blend midsole. A Vibram® Idrogrip on the front third of the sole, provides a sticky climbing zone for security and grip when ascending and on wet trails. A Megagrip on the rear 2 thirds of the sole provides great traction, on wet or dry surfaces, is durable and also enhances sure-footedness.
The Arcteryx Norvan VT GXT offers the user, support and comfort along with excellent all mountain traction control. They are light and with a generous heel pull tab, they can be easily clipped to the back of your harness when used for descents off multi-pitch climbs.
