The Arcteryx Norvan VT Mens is a high performance trail running shoe that equipped to allow it user to move at speed over unpredictable terrain. With the added feature of a 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 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 into ascend mode 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 and breathable nylon monomesh sock which ensures a precise fit whilst having the added benefit of keeping unwanted debris out. The 360Â° 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 work to create a superior fit giving comfort and confidence whilst you're out running.
The sole unit is stable and the shoe creates a dynamic toe and 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 thrids of the sole provides great traction on wet or dry surfaces, is durable and enhances sure-footedness.
The Arcteryx Norvan VT 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 as an approach shoe for multi-pitch climbing.
