The Arcteryx Arakys is designed as an everyday cragging and bouldering shoe capable of handling tought walk ins and offs, as well as being ideal to slip on and off between routes.
The heel of the shoe is designed to collapse, so you can turn it into a slipper when taking it on and off a lot between routes or problems. This is a really useful feature, making life easier and protecting the back of the shoe. The closure is an adjustable hook buckle so you don't have to tie and untie laces when moving between buttresses or coming down off a multipitch route. A great little time saver and it means you won't ever have to replace laces.
The upper is a tough ripstop with TPU film protection, keeping dirt and water splashes from becoming a problem. It's air permeable, allowing your feet to breathe, combined with the Adaptive Fit and seamless construction, all help make the shoes comfortable and extremely hard wearing. The toe cap comes up high around the toe box and is sticky rubber for excellent grip on approaches.
