Arc'teryx never skimps on quality, that is for sure. I recently purchased the Alpha SL rain jacket as well, which is also perfect. First off, I like that the shoe is the exact same color as the sample photo shows. All of the shoes appear almost animated in the sample photos, which makes you question if they even look the same in real life. Without a doubt, these shoes look just as great in person. They are as much durable and well made as they are sleek and fashionable. They are not very bulky, and can easily be worn as a "running errands shoe." The outside of the shoe is stiffer and more durable than it looks, even the lighter area on the side. As translucent and permeable as the lighter area looks, it is completely sealed and hardened just like the rest of the outside. The inside of the shoe feels very comfortable. The liner molds to your foot and gives you a sense of security yet roominess. Before I made my purchase, I did some extensive sizing research. It...
Let me start by saying that I felt like I was really going out on a limb making this purchase (with only 1 review, not much information online), but so many other Arc'teryx product reviews reassured me that Arc'teryx is a quality brand that makes quality materials...I also read an article describing how revolutionary these shoes were and how they are "blister free". So with them being on sale for 180 I went ahead and bought the black version with the red inner lining.
I received my Acrux FL GTX in the mail today. The first picture shows the box as it was when it arrived, and it looks like it has seen a beating. There was also no packaging slip. Packaging is just packaging, though. Once I opened the box the first thing I noticed was that they sent me the blue ones instead of the black and red ones. The second thing I noticed was the tags were already torn off. I'm assuming these had been returned previously, although they show no signs of wear. None of these things...
I wear a size 8.1/2 (D or E) in a standard last American shoe. I purchased these in 9.1/2 to get some room and the are almost too small. I think they are made for very very narrow feet. A friend of mine bought a pair of 10.1/2 and gave them to me because they were just TOO tight for him (he normally wears a 10). I wear the size 10.1/2 shoes and they're quite comfortable but they are way too long. I use them on the farm to do chores etc. I will keep these, but be on notice DO NOT BUY THESE IN YOUR SHOE SIZE unless you have narrow narrow feet. They are beautifully made and are quite comfortable.
